Here’s One Way You Can Buy a Lamborghini Aventador For Less Than $40,000
For those who can’t afford a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador, might we offer you an alternative that’s a tenth of the supercar’s price tag? It’s still a Lamborghini Aventador, or at least it’s part of what looks like an Aventador. It’s not technically the Lambo supercar, but it is a desk that takes the form of the Aventador’s front section. It comes from Poland-based Design Epicentrum Manufacture, and it costs just €30,000, or just over $35,000 based on current exchange rates.
Lamborghini has revealed the most aggressive version of its smallest offering, the $430,000 Huracan GT3 Evo racer, which as its name suggests, is an evolution of the original Huracan GT3. It improves the first GT3 in several ways and is available for purchase both as a standalone model or as an upgrade for any existing Huracan GT3.
Winning not only the GT Asia Series Championship in 2016, as well as the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, the Huracan GT3, has proven highly successful, and the Evo is further refined and enhanced to bring out its qualities. The main point of focus was enhancing the car’s aerodynamics with the help of the Dallara Engineering.

Lamborghini’s First-Ever Hybrid Hypercar Could Be An 838-Horsepower Powerhouse
Now that the buzz surrounding the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is subsiding, it’s now time to turn our attention to Lamborghini’s first-ever hypercar. The latest intel on the model — we only know it today as the “LB48H” — suggests that the hybrid hypercar will produce 838 horsepower, making it the most powerful Lamborghini ever created. Like the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63, only 63 units of the hybrid hypercar are expected to be produced, each carrying a rumored price tag of $2.5 million.
2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63
If the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Jota (SVJ) isn’t rare enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that a 63-unit Aventador SVJ 63 Special Edition is also available from Lamborghini. The rarer Aventador SVJ 63 carries that name as a nod to 1963, the year patriarch Ferruccio Lamborghini founded the company. Lamborghini has yet to release the price for the Aventador SVJ 63, but expect it to be heavier on the pockets compared to the $517,770 price tag of the “standard” Aventador SVJ.
2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most powerful and aggressive version of the company’s flagship supercar. The car that bears the iconic Jota suffix, which was first used on the Miura, made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of 2018.
The first Lambo to carry a "Jota" badge since the Diablo, the Aventador SVJ is essentially a beefed-up version of the SV. But it’s not just faster and more powerful, it’s also more aerodynamic, as it benefits from the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. First introduced on the Huracan Performante, ALA is a range of active aerodynamic features that turn the already potent supercar into a road-legal race car. Alongside the SVJ, Lambo launched a limited-edition SJV 63 model that pays homage to the company’s founding year of 1963.

2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
Although critics initially derided the Gallardo as a copout for the Italian automaker, offering two fewer cylinders and a smaller on-road presence than the rest of the lineup, the “baby Lambo” quickly silenced the naysayers by selling well over 7,000 units in its first five years of production. Its performance was so impressive, the higher-ups from Sant’Agata Bolognese decided to usher in a new go-faster version for 2008, upgrading the Gallardo with fresh aesthetics and improved performance. The result was dubbed the LP560-4, and once again, customers flocked to dealers, catapulting the nameplate to the top of Lambo’s list of all-time bestsellers.

1995 - 2001 Lamborghini Diablo SV
The Lamborghini Diablo arrived at a difficult time for the Italian firm. Barely out of bankruptcy and purchased by the Mimran brothers in 1985, Lamborghini began working on a successor for the aging Countach. Development took no fewer than four years, with the final car unveiled in 1990. Just like its predecessor, the Diablo was made available in various versions, including an SV model, reviving the Super Veloce name for the first time since the Miura SV was discontinued in 1973.
Lambo introduced the SV model at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show, a full five years after the Diablo went into production. It was essentially a more powerful version of the regular Diablo. It had larger brakes but lacked the all-wheel-drive system in the VT. The Diablo SV was updated alongside the other trims when Lambo facelifted the supercar in 1998, but it became the lineup’s base model and was discontinued after just one year on the market, replaced by the GT. Production of the Diablo continued two years after the SV was retired until 2001.

What’s in a Name? The Origin of the "Countach" Name Comes To Light
Lamborghini is known for naming its cars after famous bulls in history. The Miura, for example, is named after a Spanish fighting bull that was bred from the Miura Cattle Ranch Feruccio Lamborghini’s friend, Don Eduardo Miura. There’s also the Islero, which was named after a specific Miura bull that killed matador Manolete back in 1947. Then there’s the Murcielago, which is, quite arguably, the most famous bull in history, thanks in part to the myth that has grown from it surviving 28 sword strokes in a bullfight that took place all the way back in 1897. Of all the Lamborghinis that have made hit the road, only a handful carried names that weren’t connected to bulls. One of those models is the Lamborghini Countach, regarded as the first Lamborghini to break free from the automaker’s bull-naming tradition. So if the Countach’s name isn’t related to bulls or bullfighting, how did Lamborghini come up with the name? Well, we now have the answer, one brought to us by no less than the head of the Countach’s design team, Marcello Gandini.

The age of naturally-aspirated engines is slowly but surely nearing its end. Only a handful of supercar producers are seriously developing V-10 and V-12 beasts, with Ferrari and Lamborghini being at the forefront of that development. One of them only recently revealed the ultimate in terms of power, speed, composure, and dominance - the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ - the ultimate representation of everything Lamborghini stands for.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Will be the Last Lambo to Sport a Stand-Alone V-12
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is making history every time it makes the news. Hot on the heels of setting the fastest lap time of a production car at the Nurburgring, the Aventador SVJ has a new historical tie attached to its belt. The 760-horsepower Lambo will be the last ever Lamborghini to proudly use a naturally aspirated V-12 engine without any electric aids attached to it. All future Lamborghinis from this point, whether it’s using a V-12 or a V-10 engine, will be electrically assisted.
