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.

Do you remember the annoying teaser video Lamborghini dropped a week ago that told us nearly nothing about Lamborghini’s new car? It was about three guys from London who wanted to take a trip to Lamborghini ’s plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and be the first ones to see "the new creature car," which we believe to be the Gallardo’s successor.

Well, now the annoying story continues, and this time it shows the three guys inside Lamborghini’s museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese. From there, they sneak inside the factory where the new supercar is supposedly being developed. As expected, this video also shows nothing about the new car, but it does feature the obligatory good looking woman, who will apparently be part of the next episode. So, the waiting continues...

The Gallardo succesor, which reports are pointing toward not being called the Cabrera , despite previous reports that it would carry that name, will be revealed sometime before Christmas. Various reports indicate that the model will be in fact be a stumpy version of the Aventador, but with a personality all its own.

Stay tuned for more details on the new supercar.

If the name "Lamborghini Sogna" does not ring a bell, don’t feel bad. Since it was not actually produced by Lamborghini , it is not a well-known model. This model happens to be the handy work of the Japanese company Art & Tech.

The Songa is based on a Lamborghini Countach and started as a dream car for the 13-year-old Ryoji Yamazaki’ego. The fact that is was his dream car plays right into the name, as "Sogna" is the Italian word for "Dream."

By today’s standards, this car is anything, but a dream car, giving its very strange exterior look. Still, considering the model was inspired by the cars from the 1980s, you have to give it at least a little credit. The Sogna features a body made in aluminum and came equipped with scissor doors.

Sogna was unveiled at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show when Art & Tech announced plans to put into limited production with a price tag of $1.6 million per unit - which is pretty huge for that period (about $4 million at the current dollar value).

Art & Tech dropped its plans for a production model, as it only found the means to an engine for just the one show car. This engine was a mid-mounted, 5.2-liter with an output of 455 horsepower. The second unit was left with no engine and is currently on display at a museum in France , leaving the Sogna as a one-off model.

Art & Tech claimed a top speed of 201 mph, but later testing showed the Sogna could only hit 186 mph.

If you so happen to be interested in this monster, you are in luck, as it can now be yours for a cool €2,380,000 — about $3,3 million at the current exchange rates.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

Lamborghini already started teasing the Gallardo successor , and Lambo promised us the first details on it by Christmas. But, as Lamborghini tries to keep the model a secret, we continue to scour the web to find additional details on the new supercar .

Apparently our searching was worth the effort, as today we came across some interesting details on the upcoming supercar. These details were released by the folks at Only The Best, who apparently took a trip to Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory, where the new supercar and the Aventador will be produced, and caught a glimpse of the new car as the production-line door opened as they left the factory.

The other detail is that this new supercar will not be called the Cabrera as we believed. Instead Lamborghini opted for a completely different name that includes "LP600-4" — an indication of the 600 horsepower developed by the 5.2-liter, V-10 engine. Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that "Cabrera" will not be the official name, but this is one of the more hands-on reports that we’ve heard, given it actually happened...

The Gallardo’s replacement will be developed on the same chassis as the second-generation Audi R8 and will feature some design elements from the Miura , like the grilles across the entire rear window.

According to Only The Best, the model looks like a stumpy version of the Aventador with a rear end that is pretty similar to the V-12 supercar. The guys report that the model they saw on the factory donned Lambo’s signature Verde Ithaca paintjob.

A few days ago, Lamborghini invited you to listen to the engine sound of the Gallardo ’s successor. Now the real teasing begins with the first episode of a series that will reveal, step by step, the upcoming supercar, which is most commonly known as the Cabrera .

The only problem is that the first video says nearly nothing about the car. Called "The Plan," it features three guys that plan to embark on a "secret mission:" get from London to Lamborghini’s plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and be the first ones to see "the new creature car." We’re just hoping that the next episode will provide more info about the car and less about the three guys and one girlfriend.

Lamborghini promised that the first details on the new Cabrera will be released before Christmas, but before that check out www.hexagonproject.com for more details and updates on the car.

What could be the perfect car to ride you to a major tuning show? One that costs at least half-million dollar of course! Enter in the Lamborghini Aventador used by Matt Farah on his 700-mile road trip to the 2013 SEMA Show .

With a 6.5-liter, V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm in tow, the Aventador is able to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.Comfort, on the other hand, is not part of the Aventador package, according the Farah.

With an average fuel consumption of 14 mpg, it means that Matt needed at least 50 gallons of gas for this trip, and with an average of $3.20 per gallon, he had to pay $160 to get to LA. That number may have been slightly lower, had Farah kept his cool and not maxed out the V-12 at every opportunity, Then again, could we really resist the temptation to hear that sweet V-12 scream at us? We highly doubt it...

Check out the video to see if Matt finds the Aventador the right car for such a long journey!

While the world was expecting to see the new-generation Gallardo, Lamborghini decided to come up with a new special edition based on the current model. Called the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, this new supercar is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, and, according to the Italian maker, it "brings race track emotion directly to the road."

The new supercar was named after the recently founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America.

When compared to a base Gallardo LP 560-4, the new Squadra Corse version is lighter, more powerful and delivers improved performance figures. As expected, carbon fiber played an important role in the developments of the new Gallardo supercar and many elements were taken from the race track and brought to the road.

Lambo will fully outline the new Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show .

Updated 09/09/2013: Lamborghini unveiled the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and this was the perfect moment to also bring some new images. Check them out in the picture gallery!

Updated 09/30/2013: Lamborghini unveiled a video (above) for its new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse that features the newest Gallardo variant racetrack. I look and sounds simply amazing, so enjoy!

Updated 12/03/2013: The very first Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse has landed in the U.S. The last of the Gallardos was spotted at Cats Exotics, a premium exotic car dealer. We did check out their website to look for more details about the Squadra Corse Gallardo parked at their dealership, but this being a highly exclusive model of the Gallardo supercar we think someone must have placed an order for it through Cats Exotics, WA. You can see the two images we have of the model here and here.

The Lamborghini Veneno hit the scene to a relatively lukewarm reception at best, but the lack of media and enthusiast frenzy sure didn’t stop it from planning a roadster version. The new Veneno Roadster was unveiled this past weekend, and there are few differences between it and the coupe model.

The typical roadster has a top that the driver can raise and lower at his demand, but the Veneno is no typical car. Instead, Lamborghini opted to hack the top off altogether.

In terms of overall design, the Veneno Roadster looks nearly identical to its coupe brother, so it retains that crazy exterior look, with exception to it lack of a roof.

Unlike the coupe versio, which was limited to just three units, Lamborghini will limit the new Veneno Roadster to nine units. Each will carry a price tag of $4.5 million.

Update 12/2/2013: The $4.5 million Veneno recently made its public debut in Abu Dhabi. The venue for the unveiling was something out of a Hollywood movie scene. That would be, an aircraft carrier. "We are honoured that Lamborghini was chosen to represent the Italian car industry in the UAE, as a perfect example of iconic Italian super sports cars, and that we have the opportunity to show the Veneno roadster for the first time in Abu Dhabi," said Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann during the press conference.

A few days ago, Lamborghini rolled out its last Gallardo , and the company is now getting ready to unveil the supercar ’s successor, also known as the Cabrera . While the official car will be released in 2014, Lamborghini promised we will get the press release just in time for Christmas. A perfect gift, no?

While getting ready for the Cabrera, some fans prepared a very cool tribute video to the Gallardo . After all. it was the best-sold supercar in Lamborghini’s history, with a total of 14,022 units sold, — about half of the the cars ever sold by the Italian supercar builder.

Over the years, the Gallardo saw many updates and even more special editions, developed specially to reinvent the car and to keep customers interested.

This video shows off as many variants of the Gallardo as possible, so sit back and enjoy!

We know Christmas is still about one month away, but for those of you who want to have the gifts ready for the holiday, we have a very cool suggestion. This gift idea comes from Poland and we have to admit is one of the coolest yet.

We are talking about a special desk that features the front of a Lamborghini Murcielago . The desk developer says that it uses only original Italian pieces, but the fact we see no logo on the front of the car make us wonder if they are being honest or not.

All legitimacy aside, this orange desk could be the perfect gift for any car enthusiast out there, with, or without original parts. All you need is a total of $11,140, and the desk can be all yours. We’re wonder if this desk will help you finish your work as quickly as the Murcielago sprinted to 60 mph — about 3.4 seconds in its final production year.

Toreros come and go, as do the bulls they fight. The Lamborghini Gallardo has retired from the arena after almost a decade in production, and now the Lamborghini Cabrera, or whatever the final production name ends up being, is next in line to replace the best-sold Lamborghini to date. Spy shots of the upcoming bull are all over the Internet, and now, for the first time, an Italian magazine has published what could be photos of the production Cabrera.

Although we can’t confirm these to be of the actual supercar , the designers are worthy of praise for giving us a glimpse of what could be the next Lamborghini model in the December issue of Quattroruote magazine. If these images are just digital renders, then the artists deserve loads of credit.

With these supposedly leaked images of the Cabrera wearing a Aventador -esque dress in yellow hue, you do get a sense of a baby Aventador — just like all of the rumors are claiming this new model will be.

The sleek headlamp cluster has twin luminous strips in a "V" shape, The front bumper, with its large twin air-intakes, are also something you would expect on a Lamborghini .

From the side, the subtle similarities with the Aventador are more evident. Towards the rear, the horizontal taillight cluster and the unbroken mesh grille under it have been carried over from the past model, albeit with redesigned, contemporary look.

These images certainly look the part of real leaks, but with so many spot-on renderings circulating the Internet, we cannot say if these are real or not.
