Lamborghini cars

  Lamborghini is an Italian car manufacturer that was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 with the objective of competing with Ferrari. Lamborghini gained international acclaim in the 60’s for the Muira and after hard times starting from the mid 1970’s to filing for bankruptcy and three changes in ownership, Lamborghini came under Chrysler 1987. The company was eventually sold to Audi in 1998 and in the start of this century it eventually started to witness success under Volkswagen.

We received the first official details on the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 , which is the successor to the Gallardo , this past Friday and over the weekend, DMC already prepared a rendering of its first tuning kit for the new supercar . Its true, the upgrade kit is just virtual for now, but DMC said it previews a future product we’ll see in the upcoming months.

To be completely honest with you, we think the new Huracan is one of the nicest models Lamborghini has launched in a while, so don’t think it is in need of any updates; however, it looks like DMC doesn’t agree and wanted to give the Huracán a more aggressive look.

The upgrades announced by the tuner include a full carbon-fiber body kit, featuring a new front lip spoiler, new side skirts, a new rear wing spoiler, a rear deck lid and a huge rear wing. What we really hope is that the ugly roof scoop won’t make it to production.

We’ll bring you more details once DMC reveals the real kit.

Given a choice, I would choose the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta over the Lamborghini Aventador . However, there are a majority of folks who would fall for the brutal power and aggressive looks of the Aventador. No wonder then, the big Lambo is so popular. Given the high demand for this 700 horsepower supercar , owners are more keen to personalize their cars.

That’s where aftermarket tuners like Premier Autowerkz come in. They have recently launched upgrades for the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 . The extensive update includes a full body kit, fixed rear spoiler, new paint scheme and wheels.

The exterior is finished in a very attractive shade of blue and gloss black. The body kit consists of a carbon-fiber front bumper and splitter with a more aggressive front air intakes. A new carbon-fiber rear diffuser has also been added, and the exhaust system has been reworked for a unique Lambo howl. The standard retractable spoiler has been done away with and replaced with a fixed carbon-fiber piece.

PUR wheels adorn the large wheels arches on this Lamborghini Aventador . PUR RS05 wheels finished in metallic silver gives the car a sporty and distinct appeal. Brake calipers on this example are finished in a shade of gold. Under skin, the Aventador uses a the same 6.5-liter, V-12 with 700 horsepower and all-wheel drive. ’Launch Control’, thanks to the dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard.

Normally, when someone makes that ill-fated decision of using a paint brush on a supercar like the Lamborghini Gallardo , that’s a recipe for disaster.

But on the rare occasion that somebody with an artistic flair decides to do it, it could result in a pretty expressive product that only adds to the appeal of the supercar.

That’s precisely what artist Alexander Mijares did to the Gallardo. Known for his peculiar, yet incredible, style of art, Mijares showcased his skills on a pretty unique subject: the Gallardo .

It’s a project that requires a tremendous amount of skill and attention to detail in order to pull of. And Mijares was up to the task, flawlessly executive his distinctive style of art on the Italian exotic and giving it a more dynamic character than it already has.

Mijares even showcased his latest masterpiece at Art Basel in Miami, an annual festival of arts that has in the past, welcomed a number of art cars among its most prominent displays.

We’re not that well vested into the intricacies of Mijares’ style, but we do know a piece of art when we see one. His work on this Gallardo definitely qualifies as one.

Lamborghini promised that we’ll get the first details on the Lamborghini Gallardo successor just in time for Christmas, which makes us think that these leaked images are legit. The images initially appeared on the Italian site LaStampa, but the guys over Carscoops managed to get them just before the Italian site took them down. This quick takedown again points toward these images being the real deal, but who knows.

Though still unconfirmed, all signs point to the Gallardo successor being named Huracan LP610-4, and not Cabrera as rumors initially claimed. The model also carries the "LP610-4" in its name, which means that its updated V-10 engine will deliver a total of 610 PS (602 horsepower). The model will also be offered with an all-wheel-drive system.

The images found today appear to be computer generated, but that doesn’t mean they are fake, as automakers often use computer-generated images when they display their vehicles digitally.

The Gallardo successor’s debut is now just days away, so we don’t have to wait too awful long to find out if these images are real or fake.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

We should get the official details on the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo in just a few days, but our spy photographers are still out trying to snap up images of the car. This time, they managed to get some shots of supercar testing in wintery conditions in Northern Sweden.

The prototype caught testing today is equipped with lots of extra lights. Of course, these lights are not actually part of the car. Rather, they are just a requirement for the conditions it was driving in.

The new supercar, which will almost certainly will be called the Huracan, but was once rumored to carry the name Cabrera , will be built on the same platform as the upcoming Audi R8 , and it will be powered by an updated version of the current 5.2-liter, V-10 engine.

This revised V-10 will produce 600 horsepower, according to rumors, and the car’s total weight will be significantly reduced when compared to the current Gallardo, so it should be slightly faster and more agile than the model it will replace.

Until we’ll have the chance to finally see the new car, you can try to make it through the world’s three most annoying teaser videos: episode 1, episode 2 and episode 3.

The holiday season is here and just to help you out with some gift ideas, here’s one special collector’s model that you might want to get for someone. It is a 1/12-scale Lamborghini Countach model built by the Japanese company Goodsmile. In total, this model is 345 mm (13.6 inches) long, 157.7 mm (6.2 inches) wide and 89 mm (3.5 inches) tall.

There’s no denying the fact that enthusiasts love to collect scale models of classics , as well as modern cars. There are quite a few brands that make detailed works of art and the one from Goodsmile doesn’t come cheap.

This Lamborghini Countach LP400 in 1/12 scale will set you back ¥120,000, which is about $1200 at the current rates. Yes, that’s a lot but if you look closely, the cars are built with utmost attention to detail. Goodsmile actually scanned the full-size car, using modern 3D scanning techniques to achieve this sort of perfection. Each of the 500 parts are meticulously die-cast, or formed in ABS or resin to give it the perfect shape and size. The models are so perfect that not even an inch of deviation is spared.

The classic scissor doors swivel up to reveal the supercar ’s uber-cool interior. The engine bay door also opens, so that one can glance at the glorious V-12 engine that resides beneath. The cabin light turns on when the doors are swung open, headlights popup and instrument panel glows much like the real thing. The tires are hollow so that the weight of the car squashes them against the ground surface giving it a more authentic look. Rounding out this realistic model are wheels that you can remove and bolt back with a specially provided tool. Now, that’s really cool!

The unfortunate thing is that the models will not be ready for shipping until October 2014, so you will have to wrap up a picture of the model this Christmas and tell the receiver that it will arrive in about a year’s time. Alternatively, this could be an early idea for next Christmas.

Lamborghini continues to push the envelope of aggravating teasers, with its video series for the upcoming successor to the Gallardo — once rumored as the Cabrera — featuring the three Lambo nuts from London in the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.

If you haven’t followed the story until now, let us get you up to speed. In episode 1, three guys from London decided to take a trip to Lamborghini’s plant in Italy to be the first ones to "see the new creature car." In episode two, they are already in Italy and slink away from the factory tour in order to stay over night in the factory.

All we really learned n the first two is that one guy has a pretty good-looking girlfriend who likes to walk around nearly nude around her boyfriend’s friends, and that these three guys are like the 007s of spy photographers.

In this latest episode, dubbed "Gettin Closer," the three guys managed to sneak past security and a few office workers, and they are now deep inside the factory. Of course, don’t expect to see the new supercar just yet, as Lambo has a little more teasing to do. Don’t fret, though, as Lamborghini promised us a look at the car by Christmas.

In the past few months, we’ve seen quite an impressive number of tuning kits offered for the Italian supercar Lamborghini Aventador . Pretty much all of them focused on upgrading the engine’s output level, but some of them also focused on upgrading the exterior look of the supercar.

One of these tuning kits was announced by the folks at RevoZport. The tuning kit, dubbed the "LaMotta," takes its name from Giacobbe "Jake" LaMotta, nicknamed "The Bronx Bull" and "The Raging Bull." He was a professional American boxer who was the World Middleweight Champion in 1949.

As expected, most of the updates were made under the hood, where the 6.5-liter, V-12 engine was tricked to deliver 820 horsepower — a 120-horsepower increase over the car’s standard 700 horsepower. This increase was obtained by remapping the ECU and installing a new exhaust system made from inconel — a nickel-based alloy with chromium and iron.

We have gone back and forth between "Huracan" and "Cabrera" as the name of the upcoming successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo , and Cabrera was pretty much the most accepted name. Well, we heard different from a few TopSpeed faithful and we even reported that it will not be named "Cabrera."

Now, according to Auto Express, Lamborghini has decided to name its new supercar the Huracan, the very same name it trademarked back in April 2012.

Initially, this name fueled speculation that it would be used for the production version of the Urus SUV Concept . Instead, Lamborghini apparently called an audible, choosing "Huracan" as the name of the successor to the Gallardo, an appropriate enough name, considering the word is Mayan for "God of fire, wind and storms" and later adopted by the Spanish to mean "hurricane".

With Huracan already accounted for, it’s beginning to look more and more likely that the production version of the Urus SUV Concept will be called Deimos , the other name Lamborghini registered around the same time as Huracan.

Nothing has been made official on the name, as the report is from an unnamed "source" and Lamborghini has been known to make quick modifications to its choice of names for its models.

That being said, it’s looking more and more like the supercar we’re waiting to be revealed later this month is actually the Lamborghini Huracan LP 600-4.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

We should get the first official images and details on the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo in just a few days, but our spy photographers are still hard at work, trying to find the new supercar out and about, and today they succeeded.

The new Lambo was long rumored to carry the name "Cabrera ," but new details suggest that this will not be its name after all. Details from folks that actually reserved the car suggest that it will be called the Huracan, but those are also unconfirmed. One thing we do know for sure is that it will carry "LP600-4" in its name, which lets us know that it’s engine will pump out 600 horsepower output, and that it will feature an all-wheel-drive system.

The new supercar will be built on the same platform as the next-generation Audi R8 , and will be powered by an improved version of the current 5.2-liter, V-10 engine. Reports also suggest that it will be lighter than the current Gallardo, which means that that it should deliver improved performance figures.

Until we get the chance to see the new supercar unveiled, check out the latest Lamborghini teasers: episode one and episode two.
