Underground Racing Twin-Turbo Lambo Huracan Goes 257 MPH In Standing Half Mile: Video

Underground Racing Twin-Turbo Lambo Huracan Goes 257 MPH In Standing Half Mile: Video

A boosted Bull makes lots of speed

Introduced in March of 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show as a follow-up to the Gallardo, the Huracan is currently Lamborghini’s most popular model, selling in droves across a variety of markets. And why not – making it go is a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V-10, which routes as much as 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque through a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. Properly motivated, the 0-to-62 mph sprint is dispatched in 3 seconds dead, while top speed eclipses the 200-mph mark. All very impressive stuff, no doubt, but as is the case, there are some out there who simply crave more. Enter Underground Racing, a U.S.-based tuner that specializes in adding absurd amounts of boost to exotics like the aforementioned Lambo. If you’ve got the money, Underground Racing has the parts you need to scorch the airstrip, as evidenced by this quick 3-minute video.

Shot at the recent Half-Mile Indy Airstrip Attack Event in Marion, Indiana, this video shows what happens when you keep the loud pedal pinned for an extended period of time. All told, the boosted Bull manages an impressive 256.99 mph at the end of the tarmac, a figure made even more impressive when you consider this a full-fledged street car with a full interior. Foot down, head back, and go.

Don't Hold Your Breath On Scoring An Italdesign Zerouno

Don’t Hold Your Breath On Scoring An Italdesign Zerouno

All five examples are already sold

Italdesign Automobili Speciali’s first foray into the niche supercar segment has turned out to be a big hit after the newly-minted automaker announced that all examples of the Zerouno supercar are all accounted for. That’s five units, each priced comfortably north of seven figures. All of them. Sold out.

Keep in mind that while the Zerouno does have the beating heart of the Lamborghini Huracán – a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that pumps out 610 horsepower – the car itself has an entirely original body, a design product from the genius designers over at Italdesign. So it’s not a car that’s masquerading as a different model by simply having a different badge on it. The Zerouno is an original work, the first to come out of Italdesign’s Automobili Speciali division that was created earlier this year for the specific purpose of developing its own performance models under the Volkswagen Group umbrella. To this point, the company has actually built just two of the five models of the Zerouno. The first model was introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show to coincide with the brand’s launch. The second is expected to make its debut at Pebble Beach in a little under two weeks. The remaining three models will be built at a later date, each to its customer’s exact specifications.

2017 Lamborghini Huracán Spyder by O.CT Tuning

2017 Lamborghini Huracán Spyder by O.CT Tuning

While the collective population of the auto industry is transfixed at the imminent arrival of the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Performante, the aftermarket tuning scene continues to move along, busy as ever in its attempt to create the next great tuning program. One tuner in particular probably doesn’t even have the Huracán Spyder Performante on its list since it just concluded developing a program for the standard Huracán Spyder. Yep, take a look at this new tuning kit from O.CT Tuning for the roofless Huracán that puts the supercar’s output up to an incredible 794 horsepower and 597 pound-feet of torque.

Even by aftermarket standards, those numbers are beyond reproach for a car like the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder. It doesn’t have that much in the way of exterior and interior upgrades, but with numbers like that, I think O.CT Tuning can be excused for focusing its attention on the Huracán Spyder’s all-natural 5.2-liter V-10 engine.

Remember, this is the same tuner that gave us the O.CT800 Supercharged program for the Lamborghini Huracán this time last year. That one may have had some decals with it, but the focus of that kit was also on the Lambo’s V-10 engine, and the results are right around what this kit can accomplish itself.

There might be other programs for the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder that offer more in terms of quantity, but when it comes to adding more power to that V-10, there is only a handful that can compete with O.CT Tuning.

We’ll keep the upcoming Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Performance in our thoughts until it makes its hyped debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The aftermarket tuning scene is filled with tuners that can make cars faster and more powerful, yet O.CT stands out.

2017 Lamborghini Huracán Spyder by VOS

More power and more attitude for Lamborghini’s popular supercar

The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder is a very special car that deserves the utmost care and affection. There are a variety of different ways to do that and one tuner in particular is making a very compelling case for going the aftermarket route to give the Huracán Spyder some love. The company calls it itself Vision on Speed, or as it’s more popularly known, VOS Performance. A lot of you might be familiar with VOS Performance’s work, having previously done kits for cars like the Ferrari 488 GTB and the Lamborghini Huracán. Now it’s the Huracán Spyder’s turn in the tuning spotlight and VOS Performance is accommodating that in kind with a program that includes power enhancements to the tune of 630 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque.

The output increase is pretty subtle but it’s also just a small part of the overall tuning program. For instance, VOS Performance also added a comprehensive aerodynamic body kit with pieces made largely from carbon fiber. Interior modifications are also included in the tuning menu with plenty of bespoke elements inside the Huracán Spyder’s cabin. Don’t sleep on the set of wheels and the suspension upgrades too.

Overall, VOS Performance’s program for the Huracán Spyder is impressively comprehensive. Sure, there are other kits available for the Huracán that offer more power gains than the one VOS is providing. But as far as body of work is concerned, VOS Performance accounted well for itself with a program that’s going to spell a world of difference for the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán By Jon Olsson

2016 Lamborghini Huracán By Jon Olsson

Pro skier gets his juice on with another custom project

Jon Olsson may be most famous for being a professional freeskier and alpine ski racer, but over in the auto industry, the Swedish skier wears a completely different hat as the creator of some of the most individualized custom car projects this side of James Glickenhaus. We’ve seen a lot of the 34-year old’s car projects over the years. There’s the Audi RS6 DTM, the Audi R8-based PPI Design Razor GTR, and let’s not forget about the Rebellion R1k Ultima GTR. Olsson’s penchant for turning his car collection into custom, one-off creations is why we’re here because the Swede’s latest car project, one involving the Lamborghini Huracán, has arrived.

Olsson’s history with modified performance cars is well-documented so it’s nice to see that his penchant for the outlandish has yet to subside. You might not like how some of his custom projects have turned out, but you have to admit that Olsson knows how to swing for the fences. The Huracán project falls in the same boat; it’s polarizing to a certain extent, but it fits into the Swede’s lifestyle like a ski glove. Others may think it’s too tacky, but the guy who owns it doesn’t, which is the only thing that matters.

The program itself is all-encompassing as Olsson literally checked off as many aftermarket companies as he could to help contribute in the creation of his one-off Huracán. Ultimately, the man got what he wanted because the Lambo received cosmetic upgrades, performance modifications, and the one common denominator of Olsson’s custom rides: the ski rack resting comfortably on the roof. For a guy who still earns his fame through his world-class skiing exploits, that ski rack is as important a piece in the Jon Olsson tuning puzzle as is the rest of the modifications given to his Huracán.

The car isn’t subtle by any means, but it does exude Olsson’s personality and at the end of the day, he’s the one who’s going to enjoy the spoils of his new custom Lamborghini Huracán.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 by Novitec Torado

2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 by Novitec Torado

Plenty of extra power on offer for Lambo’s resident RWD sports car

The entry-level Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 is barely a year old – it was introduced at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show – and yet, it’s already established its own corner as Lambo’s most affordable current model. The rear-wheel drive Lambo also holds the distinction of being touted as the “purest expression of a Lamborghini to date,” a description that hasn’t gone unnoticed in the aftermarket world. Novitec Torado, for instance, understands the potential of a tuned Huracán LP580-2 so it went ahead and developed a kit that brings that potential to reality. The result is a car that packs a whopping 830 horsepower, more than any other stock Lamborghini today, including the range-topping Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce.

It’s easy to get mesmerized by the massive power gains that Novitec Torado is offering. Trust me; I was transfixed too. But to simply focus all of our attention on that is doing the rest of the program a disservice. For instance, the kit also includes a aerodynamic body kit whose components are made entirely out of carbon fiber. There’s also a fresh set of wheels and upgrades to the suspension that help round out the Huracán LP580-2 into the pure driving machine that it is.

There’s no word yet from Novitec Torado on when this program will become available. When that time comes though, I expect plenty of Huracán LP580-2 owners to give this kit a serious look because of what it can do to their sports cars. I’d do the same thing too if I had a rear-wheel drive Huracán.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador By 1016 Industries

2016 Lamborghini Aventador By 1016 Industries

New to the scene, but performs like a tuner that’s been around a while

The Lamborghini Aventador has been around for five years and it’s a testament to the supercar’s reputation that it’s still a favorite from the aftermarket tuning scene to this day. We’ve seen a handful of tuners build programs for the Aventador this year and the latest is the recent start-up, 1016 Industries, a relative neophyte to the tuning scene. For this program, the tuner was able to cover a significant number of modifications, none more impressive than the engine upgrade package that came out with 780 horsepower.

To be clear, the complete program has yet to be announced as a visit to the tuner’s website only reveals a “coming soon” banner. But a significant amount of details on what’s in store have been revealed and collectively, the upgrades point to an impressive build altogether. Of equal importance is the carbon fiber aerodynamic body kit that 1016 Industries claims was crafted using the latest in 3D scanning, laser scanning, and virtual modelling. It’s hard to argue against those methods, especially when you see how big these components are. Just as impressive is the tuner’s ability to partner with the best aftermarket companies in the business. In this case, that would be ADV.1 wheels, which provided a set of stellar Gunmetals CS Series rims to round out the program.

There are times when trusting a newbie to the aftermarket tuning game can be a risky proposition. But 1016 Industries doesn’t appear to be of that mold, at least when you judge what it was able to build for the timeless Lamborghini Aventador.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán Final Edition By Vos Performance

2016 Lamborghini Huracán Final Edition By Vos Performance

Top-quality tuning work courtesy of the tuner that gave us the "Vos-90X" kit for the Ferrari 488 GTB

The Lamborghini Huracán has been getting a lot of tuning love lately and that gravy train has shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Just last week, Novitec Torado presented a program for the Huracán Spyder, offering as much as 860 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque out of the Lambo’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. This time, it’s Vos Performance that’s taking up the spotlight and it’s offering a program that offers exterior, interior, performance, and chassis and suspension upgrades for the Huracán. The tuner has yet to reveal the final output from that engine upgrade, but if you take its history into account, a shot at 900 horsepower isn’t out of the cards.

That’s probably the only downer about this kit. Vos Performance issued a press release about it and there was no mention of any final output from the power increase. It did provide details on the two exhaust upgrades it’s offering, right down to the extra output and weight loss figure each of the kits has on offer. But those figures don’t paint the full picture of Vos Performance’s work on the Huracán so it would be nice if the tuner came out and said what kind of number it was able to extract from that V-10 engine.

Fortunately, the tuner did its homework - and then some - on the exterior and interior of the Huracán. Suffice to say, this program isn’t lacking in carbon fiber. Not the least bit. Even the covers of the A/C vents got in on the fun, adding an extra layer of luxury and refinement to the interior’s look.

Overall, it’s a solid program that will definitely be made a lot more exciting once the tuner gives us the lowdown on that engine upgrade.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán Spyder By Novitec Torado

German tuner gives Italian supercar an engine upgrade to be proud of

Two years after bursting into the supercar scene, the Lamborghini Huracán has become a favorite among supercar-loving auto enthusiasts. It’s also turned into a darling in the tuning world where programs have been built to cater specifically to owners of the newest Lamborghini. Novitec Torado counts itself as one of those tuners that have already developed a kit for the Huracán. Now, the German tuner is turning its attention to the Huracán Spyder and in so doing, it has prepared an equally marvelous program that helps bring out 860 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque out of the Lambo’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine.

Don’t be fooled by the incredible power gains provided by Novitec because that’s not all the tuner did for the Huracán Spyder. It also prepared a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit that was tested in a wind tunnel, a rarity even by today’s tuning standards. The tuner also prepared a new set of wheels specifically for the program and tied everything up with chassis and suspension upgrades that should give the Huracán Spyder the proper handling and balance so that owners who avail of the kit can enjoy it with the purest of pleasures.

The only thing missing it seems is work on the interior, something that Novitec Torado left for others to do. That might be a red letter for other tuners, but for a company that has earned its reputation as one of the finest in the game at preparing aftermarket programs for Italy’s most romantic of exotics, Novitec Torado did its homework on the Huracán Spyder and gave it everything the car needs to stand out from the rest of its peers.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce by Novitec Torado

2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce by Novitec Torado

Range-topping Aventador gets a slice to the tuning pie

A case can be made that a car like the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce doesn’t need any aftermarket upgrades. After all, it already packs a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that spits out 740 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. That’s good for a sprint to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph, and that’s all Lamborghini. But there are still some tuners out there who’d beg to differ. One of these tuners is Novitec Torado, who may know from its past works on the base Aventador and the Lamborghini Huracán. The tuner also happens to have a new program for the Aventador SV, one that adds modest amount of power to the supercar, helping it reach a new output of 786 horsepower and 544 pound-feet of torque. Excessive, you ask? Nah.

The German tuner is like-minded with its counterparts Mansory and Wheelsandmore in the belief that even the fastest and most powerful cars in the world deserve some aftermarket love, and that’s exactly what Novitec Torado did. The engine upgrade is just one part of the tuner’s kit for the Aventador SV. It also offers some cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades, interior personalization, suspension improvements, and of course, a set of brand-spankin’ new wheels that it commissioned from Vossen.

Truth be told, even with the rather modest improvement in power, Novitec Torado’s program for the Aventador SV borders on the comprehensive because of all the work it put in on the other sections of the car. Not that we’re complaining because as valid as the argument is that the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce is awesome enough by itself, there’s still plenty of room for improvements, especially when those improvements come at the hands of a tuner that knows what it’s doing.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 Superveloce J.S.1 Edition By Mansory

2016 Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 Superveloce J.S.1 Edition By Mansory

One-off Aventador is the Mansory project that we can only dream about

Mansory is known in the tuning world for a lot of things, but what really sets it apart from the rest of its contemporaries is its ability to build one-off creations for specific people. Just last month, the German tuner unveiled the Rolls-Royce Wraith Palm Edition 999, a nine-off project built for an exclusive lot of people who could afford it. As a follow up to that bespoke wonder, Mansory has unveiled its latest work of art, the one-off Lamborghini Aventador J.S 1 Edition.

Based on the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce, the Aventador J.S. 1 Edition is a customized project that Mansory built for billionaire art dealer James Stunt. Most people in the industry also know him as the husband of Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. But that’s a story for another time. This is all about the Aventador J.S 1 Edition, which really makes all other Aventadors look pedestrian by comparison.

First, there’s all that carbon fiber on the body. Granted, a lot of tuners have used the material for their own programs. But rarely has the final product looked like this one. It’s blacked out and dressed to the hilt with pre-preg carbon fiber. More importantly, it also has an engine tune that takes the Superveloce’s 750-horsepower output and brings it up to a level worth its incredulous body.

Mansory has built a lot of these projects in the past, but this one ranks right up there as one of the best ones yet.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán O.CT800 Supercharged by O.CT Tuning

2016 Lamborghini Huracán O.CT800 Supercharged by O.CT Tuning

It’s almost been two years since Lamborghini unveiled the Huracán supercar. Seems like it was only yesterday, right? But yeah, the Huracán has been a part of our lives since making its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. In that time, it’s been one of the most heavily tuned supercars in the business today. That isn’t a surprise because as one of the last holdouts of the naturally aspirated engines, the prospects of adding a turbocharger or a supercharger into the mix has been too good an opportunity for these tuners to pass up.

We’ve already seen a handful of them, and now comes O.CT Tuning with another one. The Austrian tuner’s kit is as you’d expect it to be for a Huracán program. It does away with any cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades and instead focuses on the supercar’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Yep, there’s a supercharger involved here too and there’s a healthy amount of added horsepower that comes with it.

I’m not going to spoil how much it is, but the name of the program does give it away a little bit. In any case, O.CT Tuning’s latest program follows a long line of projects it has built for some of the finest sports cars and supercars in the land. It’s nice to see that with everything it has done in the past, O.CT hasn’t lost its touch in developing these impressive kits.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP760-4 By DMC Tuning

2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP760-4 By DMC Tuning

DMC adds another aftermarket layer on Oakley Design’s Lamborghini Aventador Dragon Edition

A car like the Lamborghini Aventador is awesome enough in its own right that it really doesn’t need an aftermarket program. Still, there are those who prefer to give it a tuning program just to see how much faster and more powerful the car can go. That’s perfectly understandable. But every so often, you chance upon a car that is the recipient of not one, but two aftermarket programs.

This Lamborghini Aventador is the perfect example of that. By and large, this is an Aventador, albeit a special edition one that was released in limited quantities by Oakley Design back in 2012. It was nicknamed the “Dragon Edition” and only 10 units were made, each coming with an aero kit made up of a fixed carbon fiber rear spoiler, redesigned front bumper, and rear air vents. It also had individually-numbered plaques and embroidered dragons on the doors, and most importantly, a massive performance bump that gave the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine 760 horsepower 550 pound-feet of torque to play with.

But, this isn’t about Oakley Design’s program for the Aventador. This is about DMC Tuning’s aerodynamic kit, which brings out a whole new level of aggressiveness from the Aventador. As far as overblown programs are concerned, these two kits have done wonders for Lamborghini’s mighty supercar.

2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 N-Largo By Novitec Torado

2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 N-Largo By Novitec Torado

The Novitec Tuning Group has been responsible for some of the sickest tuning programs attached to the Ferrari and Maserati brands. That’s in large part due to the success of its Rosso and Tridente tuning brands. But in 2013, Novitec decided to branch out and create another sub-brand that would be dedicated to that other Italian supercar brand, Lamborghini. Hence, Novitec Torado was born. In short order, Novitec Torado has certainly lived up to its hype, thanks in large part to impressive tuning kits for the Aventador and the Aventador Roadster. Now that Lamborghini has released the Huracan, Novitec Torado has followed suit with a tuning kit for Lambo’s newest supercar.

The program reflects the kind of attention to detail that Novitec Rosso and Novitec Tridente are known for. Novitec Torado prepared a comprehensive aerodynamic program that adds to the Huracan’s visual looks, as well as its performance capabilities. The tuner even has wheel options for the Aventador to go with a suspension kit that helps the Huracan adjust to the extra power it’s now carrying.

Overall, Novitec Torado’s program for the Huracan takes a page from its Rosso and Tridente counterparts to showcase what Novitec can do to a Lamborghini. The sub-brand may be a relative neophyte compared to other Novitec tuning brands, but it has been able to adapt quite nicely to the standards set by its cousins.

Unfortunately, this particular kit for the Huracan is only available in limited quantities.

2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce "LaMaXXina" by Wheelsandmore

2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce "LaMaXXina" by Wheelsandmore

Lighter, more powerful, and far more exclusive, the Lamborghini Aventador SV represents the pinnacle of performance for the entire Aventador lineup. It was launched at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and only three months after that, all 600 units of the supercar were spoken for. That’s how popular the Aventador SV turned out to be, living up to the incredibly high expectations set by its predecessor, the Diablo SV.

With so much acclaim attached to it, German tuner Wheelsandmore has hitched its wagon on the Aventador SV with its first kit for the exclusive supercar. It’s called the “LaMaXXina” program, and as you can expect, it’s got all elements of a traditional Wheelsandmore program.

That’s not going to sit well with some owners of the Aventador SV, especially those who prefer to have their exotics receive significant exterior and interior modifications. But, for owners who prefer upgrades of a more technical kind (engine and wheels), the LaMaXXina tuning kit is right down their alley.

Give yourselves time to warm over this new tuning kit. There aren’t that many programs exclusively dedicated to the Aventador SV so if you’re looking to have your uber exclusive Lambos modified, the German tuner is only a call (or an email) away.

2015 Lamborghini Huracan By xXx Performance

The Lamborghini Huracan is still a relatively new supercar, having only made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. In the year that has passed, there have only been a handful of tuning firms that have taken stabs at creating programs for the supercar.

The latest to do so is xXx Performance, a German tuning firm who is no stranger to developing racy performance programs for some of Sant’Agata’s finest. Remember the work it did on a 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo back in 2013? That program came with twin-turbo upgrades that took the output of the Gallardo to as much as 1,200 horsepower.

Ok, before I get too carried away, this new program for the Huracan doesn’t have that level of power enhancement. What it does have is a series of modifications to the supercar’s exterior, engine, and wheels, all of which combine to create a pretty impressive tuning kit that owners of the Huracan should keep a close eye on. So what if it the tuned up Huracan can’t produce 1,200 horsepower; it’s still good for 690 horsepower. That’s 80 ponies more than the 610-horsepower from the stock model. Given the small number of performance upgrades for the Huracan, xXx Performance’s kit for the newest Lamborghini is as appealing as they come.

2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster by Novitec Torado

2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster by Novitec Torado

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is arguably one of the most powerful drop-top supercars in the world. Needless to say, it’s also a popular aftermarket project for some of the best tuning firms in the world. Novitec Torado can lay claim to that distinction, thanks to its affiliation with Novitec Rosso and Novitec Tridente, all of which are part of the Novitec Group. It’s only fitting that Novitec Torado’s latest program is for the Aventador Roadster and not surprisingly, it’s an incredible kit that features comprehensive aerodynamic and performance upgrades.

This isn’t the first time Novitec Torado has worked on the Aventador. Back in July 2013, the Novitec tuning division dedicated to Lamborghinis worked on the Aventador coupe and the result was a 750-horsepower powerhouse, photos of which still have a dedicated spot on my desktop.

It’s hard to top that kit, but Novitec Torado comes really close with its kit for the Aventador Roadster. At the very least, you don’t expect anything less from a tuning group that has built some of the most unique and most powerful programs for Ferraris, Maseratis, and now, Lamborghinis.

Video: 1,800-HP Lamborghini Gallardo Hits 224 MPH in 1/2 Mile

Video: 1,800-HP Lamborghini Gallardo Hits 224 MPH in 1/2 Mile

I have driven some very fast machinery in my life, including more than one Lamborghini Gallardo, but I have never experienced the kind of speed you are about to witness.

The U.S. 1/2 Mile is a half-mile drag race that happens yearly in Houston, Texas at Ellington Airfield. It is a hotly contested competition to set the highest top speed over the half-mile distance. Coming in to this year’s event, Underground Racing held the record at 217.1 mph, but there were lots of new cars looking to dethrone the tuning company.

As you can see in this video, that didn’t happen. In fact, using an Underground Racing-tuned, twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardo Superlegerra with 1,800 horsepower, a brand new race record was set at 224.4 mph. When this Lamborghini crossed the quarter-mile mark, it was already going 177 mph. The car was going so fast, and there were so many vibrations, that is started to affect the cameras and caused some major distortion.

It was a good thing that the team brought such a powerful car, as the previous record was smashed by all three of the top finishers.

Considering that amount of speed that was gained from last year’s race to this year’s competition, I can’t wait to see what kind of insane machines show up for 2015. Now stop reading, hit play, and watch this Lambo blast down the runway.

2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Art Car by Duaiv

2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Art Car by Duaiv

Some folks really like art. Others, including us, really like cars. Well, the two worlds can sometimes come together with dramatic results. Take for example the Lamborghini dealership in Miami, Florida and their collaboration with the world-renowned artist Duaiv. Together, the two have fashioned this, the Aventador Roadster known as “Project Duaiv.”

The $400,000 Italian supercar is wrapped in the same swirly colors and patterns as the original painting, seen perched atop an easel beside the roadster. Apparently, Duaiv has a thing for fast cars as he reportedly showed up to Lamborghini Miami in a similarly wrapped Ferrari. The report from the DuPont Registry says Duaiv has always wanted an Aventador, and now, has finally gotten his dream car wrapped in his own self-titled artwork.

With purple hair, a flowery shirt, skinny jeans, and purple combat boots, Duaiv strikes a pose next to his new ride. But things haven’t always been so flashy for the Frenchman. Born in 1952, he traveled the world in past days as a classical musician. His painting side also grew during that time. He’s known for using unique techniques to paint his masterpieces.

Besides the bespoke wrap, the Duaiv’s 2015 Aventador also sports a Novitec rear spoiler. The spoiler’s thin supports sort of mirror the thin black lines in the wrapped bodywork and almost continue the look past the sloping rear deck of the Lambo. Everything else remains stock, including the 6.5-liter V-12 making a respectable 690 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque.

2015 Lamborghini Huracan "Affari" by DMC

2015 Lamborghini Huracan "Affari" by DMC

DMC has this way of building up its supercar programs. It teases you with renderings, drops a few hints along the way, and when you least expect it, leaks even more details about it. The company’s first program for the Lamborghini Huracan, called the "Affari," fits into the company’s proverbial slow play.

We first saw renderings of the Affari program back in December 2013. Since then, it’s been kept largely in the shadows and it wasn’t until July 10, 2014 that DMC finally gave us more details of its first aftermarket foray of the new Lamborghini.

DMC’s reputation as a premier Lamborghini tuner was once again in full effect with its Affari program for the Huracan. The German tuner wasted little time bringing a new level of customization to the supercar, giving it a significant aerodynamic upgrade that’s perfectly suited for the Huracan’s new-world aggressiveness.

For now, details only revolve around the handful of aerodynamic components that were slapped on the Huracan. DMC still has plans to develop a performance upgrade for the Affari program, but those are being kept on ice for the time being.

Since this is DMC we’re talking about, we have a certain level of expectation on what this engine tune will deliver. The tuner has given us every reason to hope for the best, so we’re not sweating on the possibilities of the Affari program being all its hyped up to be.

No, this isn’t a Transformer you’re looking at. This is the latest piece of supercar work coming from the mental minds of DMC. The German supercar tuner isn’t done making hellacious programs for the Lamborghini Aventador. At some point, you wonder if there’s any limit to the company’s imagination.

This new program, dubbed the LP988 "Edizione-GT", follows in the footsteps of the Molto Veloce and Spezial Version packages. Only its not so much as "following in the footsteps" as it is taking it to an entirely new level.

In other words, this is the STAGE3 program, and surely, it lives up to its billing with an incredible tuning kit that comprises of a migraine-inducing body kit and engine upgrade combination.

This is the kind of program that isn’t easy to make, let alone easy to buy. According to DMC, simply showing up with a big, fat check isn’t going to make you a proud owner of the Aventador LP988 Edizione-GT. Instead, interested customers need to to apply — yes, apply — before you’re allowed to buy one. Additionally, each customer selects a one-off color, and DMC will never use that color again on an Aventador.

Those who make the cut will then be treated to a unique model that DMC says will be limited to just one color and/or style per unit, ensuring that no two programs are exactly the same. That’s exclusivity spelled with a capital "E."

The Lamborghini Aventador LP988 Edizione-GT program will cost buyers a whopping $288,888.

2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP850-4 Lucifero By Wheelsandmore

With the venerable Lamborghini Gallardo now out of the way, the brand-new Huracan LP610-4 has all the credentials to run the company’s entry-level supercar office and build on the legacy of its predecessor. Sure, replacing an omnipotent car like the Gallardo is not an easy task, but with 610 horsepower under the hood and performance figures that would make any Ferrari tremble, the Huracan is a machine no sports car manufacturer should ignore.

What’s more, this Italian bull is likely to receive numerous upgrades throughout its life and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a more powerful version roll out of Sant’Agata Bolognese as soon as 2016. Meanwhile, customers that aren’t satisfied with the 610 ponies and 413 pound-feet of torque available in the stock vehicle can have their Huracans enhanced by Wheelsandmore, a small venture known for adding more oomph to a variety of Ferrari, Maserati and McLaren sports cars.

Naturally, the Germans didn’t take too long to figure out how to increase the Huracan’s power even further and their all-new package is already up for grabs. As with most Wheelsandmore creations, the Huracan was also subjected to a wheel swap. Coming to replace the standard rollers are a set of race-inspired FIWE rims that feature a twin six-spoke design with central locking hubs. Measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches to the rear, the wheels are fully customizable and buyers can have the outer rim, the center and the small connecting screws finished in just about any color.
