Lamborghini Is Not Interested In Making More Retro Models And It’s a Shame
As far as Italian car companies go, few possess the proud past and heritage of Lamborghini. It is because of this great past and the brand’s experience in making go-fast machines (and tractors) that we have gotten some of the most bonkers high-performance sports cars in the industry.Lamborghini’s decision to resurrect the Countach name was one that excited many, but was ultimately highly controversial. By the sound of it, the 2021 Lamborghini Countach will be the last time the supercar maker dabbles in retro-inspired models.
2022 Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae LP 780-4
Lamborghini has unveiled the very last Aventador, the LP780-4 ULTIMAE. It is the latest update to Lamborghini’s flagship model, joining the ranks of the LP700-4 and S. But, it represents more than just the end of the Aventador name, so it’s a lot more special than you might think.
Updated 05/03/2022: Lamborghini took both, the Aventador Ultimae Coupe and Roadster, out for a nice trip on the roads of Emilia Romagna and the Marches. The results are stunning and you can see it in our latest picture gallery. Limited to only 350 coupes and 250 roadsters, the production of the Ultimae - and the traditional V-12 engine - will come to an end in the upcoming months.
You Will Never See a 1974 Lamborghini Countach Being Driven Like This In The Real World
For most of us, owning or driving an iconic classic like the Lamborghini Countach is, sadly, a distant mirage. Even those few that can afford to own one, preserve them and, more often than not, turn these automotive legends into “garage queens”. Things are quite different in the meta-verse, however, where thrashing any car has zero consequences. We don’t normally post gameplay footage, but when you have a game that looks as good as Gran Turismo 7, it’s all worth it. Enjoy as this 1974 Countach gets virtually put through its paces on an Italian racetrack.
Here’s Why The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica Is The Ultimate Huracan
Lamborghini loves taking its time with all its iconic models. The Lamborghini Countach was produced for 16 years (1974-1990) while the Lamborghini Diablo stayed around for 11 years (1990-2001), and the Aventador – for 10 years (2011-2021). The Huracan is shaping up to be the latest example of unusually long production. The mid-engine model has already been on the market for eight years, and it just got its 11th iteration, in the form of the 2023 Huracan Tecnica. It seems to be the pinnacle of what the platform can achieve and here’s what makes it the ultimate Huracan.
Drag Race: Ferrari 488 Pista vs Lamborghini Huracan STO vs Porsche 911 GT3
Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ is back with yet another drag race involving three supercars that have loyal fan bases of their own. But, no matter how desirable, this race is a tad bit stale. We had the same results with whatever kind of race that happened. Now, it’s not necessary that every race has to tug our heartstrings or give us the adrenaline rush, right? But, then why did we cover it? Well, the cars are eye candies and sound amazing. That’s it!
Italy Vs Germany: A Porsche 911 Turbo S Drag Races a Lamborghini Huracan EVO
Another day, another series of drag races on the way. This one comes from DragTimes and pits a Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S versus a Lamborghini Huracan EVO. Two very different formulas for similar levels of performance. It’s just a classic, best out of three drag racing between two fast machines that are completely stock. Here’s what happened.
Here’s An Insight To What The Next Lamborghini V-12 Flagship Would Look Like
With the Lamborghini Aventador officially axed, many wondered what the next flagship Lambo would look like and what engine will it have. While it has been confirmed that the Aventador successor will still have a naturally-aspirated V-12 engine, the prototype is still heavily camouflaged. Luckily, there are enough visible design cues to give us a good idea of what the big “Lambo” would look like. It comes from TheSketchMonkey, and from what Lamborghini has done in the past, we believe this one is quite close to reality.
Watch A German Family Performance Sedan Take On A Revered Japanese Sports Car And A V-12 Italian Supercar!
The ‘Carwow’ team is back with yet another drag race; this time involving three cars in their pinnacle performance trims, but very different from one another. The three-way bout included the BMW M5 CS, the Nissan GT-R Nismo, and the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. I’m not spoiling the races here, but let’s just say all the cars had their moments to shine at some or the other point, thus making this a far from boring or a monotonous race. That’s always better than the one-way quashes, isn’t it?
Lamborghini Huracan and Urus – How A Brand Says Goodbye to ICE-Only Power
Remember when I told you that Lamborghini was going to have a very busy year, including the reveal of the hybrid Lamborghini Aventador for 2023? Well, as it turns out, before Lamborghini turns its attention to full scale hybridization and, eventually, electrification, it’s going to bid farewell to ICE-only cars with two new versions of both the Huracan and the Urus. Once these four cars are released in the coming months, all Lamborghini vehicles from that point on will either be hybridized or electric, with the first electric model scheduled to arrive sometime in the middle of the decade. But wait, there’s more.
The Tesla Model S Plaid Is Looking For More Victims, And DDE’s Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Wants To Be Next
Another day, another Hoonigan drag race. The Tesla Model S Plaid keeps giving our favorite, internal combustion engine performance cars a run for their money. This time, Damon from Daily Driven Exotics brought a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ to go up against the Tesla Model S Plaid. Can the flagship V-12 Lambo break the Plaid’s winning streak?
The Most Expensive Lamborghini Ever Built
After its formation in 1963, Ferrucio Lamborghini had the idea of producing exotic cars, especially grand tourers to compete with the already famous Ferrari. The Miura was the company’s first sports coupe with a mid-engined rear-wheel-drive configuration. After Audi acquired the Italian sports car company in 1998, Lamborghini began to benefit from German tech and luxury. The brand’s first modern performance SUV, the Urus, was introduced in 2019 and has a starting price of around $230,000. The performance roadster Huracan EVO Spyder, which is one of the most popular exotic convertibles, sells for about $240,000. Owning a Lamborghini car is something we all dream of, but they are highly expensive and out of reach for most. The most recent Lamborghini released is the Countach, a model that is based on the Lamborghini Sian, which is in turn based on the Aventador SVJ. Could you guess the price? It’s $2,640,000. But this isn’t the most expensive Lamborghini. In fact, it’s far from it. Here, we have listed down the top five most expensive Lamborghini cars ever built.
Amazing Wallpapers: The Lamborghini Urus, Aventador SVJ, and Huracan EVO Celebrate Christmas the Right Way
Christmas is all about being together with your family and friends, right? Well, here comes Lamborghini, showing us that the same applies to… cars. Come to think of it, Sant’Agata Bolognese’s family of models isn’t a big one, but Lamborghini has always been about more quality and less quantity. So to properly celebrate Christmas, Lamborghini set up a lifestyle-y convoy that’s been traveling around Italy to various points of interest, including the CO2-neutral Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters, the sinuous roads of Alto Adige, and Plan de Corones in the Dolomites, at altitudes of 2,275 meters (7,463 feet), and the AlpiNN restaurant run by Michelin three-starred chef Norbert Niederkofler.
The tour’s main stars were none other than Lamborghini’s V8, V-10, and V-12 powered go-fast machines: the Urus, the Huracan EVO, and the Aventador SVJ. What’s the reason to celebrate, you’re asking? Well, other than the holiday season, an unseen-before boost in sales and profitability for the carmaker. Driven by the Urus super-SUV’s popularity, Lamborghini delivered more than 8,000 cars worldwide, a hefty increase compared to the 5,750 units it shipped in 2018.
But, hey, we didn’t bring you here for boring sales reports and whatnot. You’re here to enjoy a fleet of mean performance cars flaunting their shapes and lines in some of Italy’s most stunning landscapes. Oh, yeah, the drivers weren’t afraid to take the cars out for a fun session in the snow; and if that’s not a proper way to look back on 2019 and reflect on what the new year might bring, we don’t know what is. Who knows, maybe the following pictures will inspire you and your mates to finally kick off that winter road trip you’ve been planning. After all, driving a Lambo is hot juicy fun, yet nothing beats a driving get-together between old friends, regardless of what car each of you use on a daily basis.
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Lamborghini Jalpa With These Awesome Pictures
We love celebrating car birthdays and this year is the Lamborghini Jalpa’s 40th anniversary. The car that was once considered the entry-level Lamborghini has now become 40 years old, having been produced between 1981 and 1988. With only 410 units produced, it certainly is rare and prices have started to reflect that. Here’s a brief overview of the 1980s “Baby Lambo”.
Crazy Race: Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TTRS vs Golf R
It’s always interesting to see how different engine layouts compare to one another. It’s even more interesting when a high-performance SUV goes up against some of the best compact sports cars and a capable hot hatchback. This is exactly the case with this drag race from Carwow, where a Lamborghini Urus is being challenged by a Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi TT RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R.
Lamborghini Huracan Rayo Wants To Have A Go At 300 MPH
I think we can all agree that the Lamborghini Huracan is a very capable supercar out of the box. Be that as it may, the people at 7X Design thought it would be a good idea to exploit the car’s hardware to its fullest. Moreover, with help from Envisage Group from Coventry, the Huracan received a bespoke new body that seems to have been inspired by the Miura. The results, both visually and performance-wise, are mind-blowing.

2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
The Ares Panther Might Have a DCT, But You Can Still Pretend To Shift Your Own Gears
There are cars out there that truly deserve to have a modern-day successor. Without a doubt, the De Tomaso Pantera is one of those cars. Luckily, the people from Ares Design are of the same mind, which is why they’ve given birth to the Ares Design Panther. Although from every angle, the car looks like a worthy successor to the original, we will be focusing on one of its distinctive features – the gated shifter.
