We’re usually not prone to overt praises on these pages, but when it comes to Canadian tuner SR Auto Group, you can’t help but appreciate the level of work it does on its programs.
SR Auto Group has, on multiple occasions, taken a Lamborghini Aventador for a custom spin. And when presented with another of its kind to work on, it didn’t hesitate to put its hardhat on and get to work - again. That’s why we respect SR; no car is too difficult to give some aftermarket lovin’.
This time, the subject is a 2013 Nero Pegaso Aventador, a supercar that not only speaks the language of speed and power, but does so while wearing a menacing look on its face.
At the end of the day, SR Auto Group is all about bringing out the full potential of any super car it comes across. That includes the Aventador and to its credit, SR Auto Group never seems tire of giving the exotic Italian bull the respect it so richly deserves.

There are some accidents that are just completely unavoidable. With these types of accidents, you have no other option but to chalk it up to being at the wrong place, at the wrong time. This, unfortunately, isn’t one of them. A Porsche dealership in Laval, Quebec was servicing a Lamborghini Gallardo when a mechanic, after doing the necessary alignments on the car, decided to take it out for a spin despite of the less-than-ideal weather conditions.
While doing some test runs on the car, the mechanic lost control of it and ended up crashing it into a traffic light pole with the force of the crash causing the post to fall straight into the Gallardo.
It got a lot stranger when the Porsche dealership, who technically didn’t get permission from the driver to test run the car in the wet conditions, refused to pay any sort of compensation for the damages done to the car. We’re smelling a lawsuit here.
Whatever the case may be, this incident is a tough way to crash a Lamborghini Gallardo, and we’ve seen plenty of them in our time.
While most of us can only afford Lamborghini’s in the form of die-cast models, that hasn’t stopped the folks over at Sant’Agata from trying to convince us that if a real Lamborghini is out of the question, Lamborghini merchandise is not.
That much was evident when Lambo opened up new shops in both Beijing and Los Angeles last year. Now you can add another boutique to that list after the company officially opened the newest Lamborghini store in the heart of the Aberdeen Center in Vancouver last weekend.
Among the goodies the new Lamborghini store will begin offering to its Canadian fans are items from the brand’s Collezione fashion line. This line includes clothing, hats, shoes, briefcases, and a number of other knick-knacks.There were also a couple of Gallardos and Murcielagos on display at the store, but it doesn’t look like those cars were being sold.
Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. president and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, expressed excitement over the prospect of opening up shop in Vancouver, saying that "Vancouver’s strong luxury market makes it a proper fit for expanding our line of fashion boutiques while remaining authentic to our brand DNA."
