Lamborghini Just Isn’t For Sale, Shoots Down $9.2 Billion Deal
Lamborghini is a very interesting manufacturer at the moment. This is due to its refusal to give up the big normally-aspirated V-12, in times of downsizing and hybridization. Even AMG – a company largely defined by its handmade V-8 engines, has switched to turbocharged inline-fours. And although we know that Lamborghini’s future vehicles will feature hybrid tech, they are not willing to give up their V-12 flagships.
A Big Money Offer Could Seal The Fate Of Lamborghini Once and For All
Lamborghini has kind of been in the news a lot lately. Back in March, we learned that a brand-new engine could push the Urus PHEV up to 800 horsepower and in April news broke that the Aventador’s successor could end up with an electrified V-12. The latter piece of news ended up making a lot of sense after Lamborghinis reveal of its roadmap to 2025 that includes mass hybridization followed by electrification sometime after 2025. A new report from Autocar, however, details something huge that could change the company forever!
Lamborghini’s Roadmap to 2025 and Beyond - What You Need to Know
Brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and even Bugatti, are so enriched with a strong history of fuel-born power that the transition to electrification naturally hangs in the balance between desire (or lack thereof) and necessity. One could even argue that exotic car makers are fighting emissions regulators left and right, continuing to pledge new ICE-powered cars while promising a future of electrification. Ferrari ,for example, is still looking to keep its V-12 around for a little longer, so much so, in fact, that it’s trying to get even more than 830 horsepower out of it. Meanwhile, Lamborghini is looking to launch two new V-12 models in 2021, and even after that,its new cars will be hybridized for at least a few more years.
Lamborghini Might Have a Dirty Little Secret
As it turns out, Lamborghini might have a surprise for us in the store. Hushed talks on the internet report that the automaker is prepping to launch a Sian-based hypercar to pay homage to the 50th anniversary of the Countach. But, nothing is official at this moment, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Watch the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and EVO Throw Down On The Track
Lamborghini Huracan EVO or the Huracan Performante: this question gave a lot of potential Lamborghini owners a headache. While one is newer and comes with an updated interior, the other one is quicker to hit the 200 mph mark and is lighter, too. The host of this video was in this boat but purchased the EVO over the Performante for a variety of reasons. But, he decided to pit the beast against a Performante to see how it fares. Which exotic model do you think would’ve won?
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.
This Is, By Far, The Coolest Lamborghini Sian Video Ever Made
Lamborghini delivered the first Sian FKP 37 supercar to the United States in December 2020. We saw that almost live thanks to youtuber and car enthusiast TheStradman.
Come January 2021 and another customer is taking delivery of his Sian, but this one is a bit more special. Sold by a Florida dealer, this two-tone Sian was given the Prestige Imports treatment at Lamborghini Miami by means of a full paint protection film coating and a quick service check up. While this is regular business for a luxury supercar, the cool thing is that Prestige Imports documented the process and released an epic video of it.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec
Novitec has a great deal of experience in tuning and developing packages for exotic cars. This time around, it has laid its hands on the Huracan EVO RWD. The German tuner has developed a styling package that includes carbon fiber elements, a new set of wheels and tires, and an upgraded suspension system and exhaust system. The package, however, doesn’t include any power boost or drivetrain upgrades.
This 2006 Lamborghini Murciélago Is Here To Remind You That Sometimes Older Is Better
Lamborghini introduced the Murciélago back in 2001 as a successor to the Diablo. The Murciélago was in production for almost a decade. It was the first new car after 11 years and also happened to be the first under its new parent, Volkswagen. The Italian car was also the new flagship V-12 and worthy to be the face of the company. The car sold in decent numbers – 4,099 examples to be exact – and is still a hit with enthusiasts.
If you are someone who was craving to own one, here’s your chance to own a 2006 model Murciélago with 14,000 miles on the odo, courtesy of the Bring-a-Trailer auction.
2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The 2020 Lamborghini Sian is a hybrid supercar that the Italian firm unveiled ahead of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Powered by a V-12 gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Sian is Lambo’s first mass-produced hybrid. However, the supercar is limited to only 63 units, so it’s actually a preview of things to come, like an electrified successor to the Aventador.
Design-wise, the Sian stands on its own by combining a new design language with styling cues inspired by the iconic Lamborghini Countach. Its interior, on the other hand, is based on the Aventador’s, albeit it comes with bespoke elements and fancier features. The Sian also showcases innovative technology, like a state-of-the-art energy recuperating system and a supercapacitor instead of a traditional lithium-ion battery. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
