What Could This Mysterious Roofless Lamborghini Be?
Lamborghini is, by and large, the inventor of the modern supercar and, over the years, the subjects of some of our most-loved posters have rolled out of Sant’Agata Bolognese. However, the world is changing and the mid-engined V-12 supercar, the thing Lamborghini knows how to do best, might be on its last legs which is why the Italians are celebrating it with yet another special car. It’s basically similar to the Essenza SCV12 although it is lacking in one key area: there’s no roof over your head.
Lambo Is Teasing a New Model for July 8, But What Is It?
For a long while now, Lamborghini has been pretty happy with a two-car lineup. We had the Gallardo and Murcielago pair until around a decade ago, and now the Italians are relying on the Huracan and Aventador. But things are started to change as Lamborghini introduced a third model in 2019. It’s called the Sian FKP 37, and it’s also the company’s first hybrid. Come July 8, only two days from now, and Lambo will launch a new model. We don’t know what it is for now, but we have a couple of teasers to do the guessing game.
A Lamborghini Sian FKP37 Roadster Is In the Works, But Will It Have a Roof?
Lamborghini loves to churn out as many derivatives out of its exotic-looking supercars and in a move we honestly didn’t see coming, the Sian FKP37 will return to the limelight as a roadster.
A recent report talks about a Sian Roadster that Lamborghini is currently working on, but other details are pretty much nonexistent.
We’re Pretty Sure We Know What “New” Model Lamborghini is Revealing on May 7
Lamborghini’s plant in Sant’Agata has been at idle since March 13, when the COVID-19 outbreak put a temporary end to production. It originally planned to resume operations March 25, but that had to be prolonged, with the company now saying production will restart on May 4th. That announcement came via a general press release that just so happened to hide a little piece of information, one that says Lamborghini is planning to host an online world premiere of a new car on May 7th. The company stopped short of naming that model or disclosing any other information, but we already have a damn good idea of what’s coming.
Lamborghini Wants to Rewrite the Book on Electrification and the Sian FKP 37 Was the First Chapter
Lamborghini has slowly been dipping its toes in the ocean that is electrification, but so far, it has yet to go beyond knee-deep. The 2017 Terzo Millennio Concept car previewed Lambo’s future electrification technology, and the new Sian FKP 37 is only a hybrid because Lamborghini was able to develop a small supercapacitor that made hybridization possible without compromising the traditional Lamborghini driving experience. However, this technology is far from ready to be adopted into Lamborghini’s lineup full time, at least not to the extent that the company can create full-fledged series-production hybrid cars. So, Lamborghini needs to rewrite the book on electrification and hybridization – here’s how it plans to do it.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan EVO Performante
After Lamborghini’s chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani was adamant in suggesting that the Huracan has already matured and reached its peak - “that badge is finished” were his words, by the way, we were expecting rumors about the replacing model. However, a mysterious set of spyshots is bringing us back on the topic of a lighter, more powerful version of the Huracan slated to make a debut in the following months.
We know Lamborghini likes to pull off anniversary editions as well as farewell editions for its cars, but if the recent rumors are true, this could be, in fact, a high-powered Huracan to rule them all, one that would sit above both the Evo and the Performante. In fact, it could be called Huracan Evo Performante, although we’re taking that with a pinch of salt for the time being. That said, did Sant’Agata Bolognese change its mind? Is a Superleggera-style Huracan back in the cards?
They Say Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer Hinted at a Potential Urus Performante, But It’s Probably Not Happening
The Lamborghini Urus Performante has taken up residence in the rumor mill for a few months now. Lamborghini’s chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, has now brought life back to the Urus Performante, and it appears that the high-spec version of the Urus SUV will likely become a reality at some point soon. Granted, Reggiani didn’t explicitly say that the Urus Performante is coming. But he also didn’t say that it wasn’t.
Whether or not it ends up happening will depend entirely on Lamborghini. So in the absence of a clear direction on Lamborghini’s part, we’re taking it upon ourselves to talk about the veracity of these rumors and how it’s going to affect Lamborghini’s booming Urus SUV business moving forward.
How Fast Does the New Aventador Track-Only Car Have to Go to Be The Fastest Lamborghini Ever?
In order to even begin understanding what to expect from the upcoming track-only Aventador, we must first look at Lamborghini’s supercar roster from two standpoints: one of them relates to Sant’Agata Bolognese’s road-going cars over the years, while the other has to do with its race cars currently involved in various motorsport competitions around the world.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse already released a CGI-filled teaser video that drops small hints at its upcoming track-only beast under the “purest track experience” punchline. Join us as we try to anticipate what can such a car deliver in terms of performance, especially acceleration and top speed...
The 2025 Lamborghini Sedan Could Be an Overpriced Audi Inspired by the Decade-Old Estoque Concept
It’s no secret that Lamborghini has its eyes set on adding another model to its current lineup. That long-rumored model, a 2+2 grand tourer that takes inspiration from the Estoque Concept from 2008, is reportedly close to receiving the green light from Lamborghini executives.
Specific details haven’t been revealed, but there’s growing buzz that the model will arrive by 2025. More importantly, it could become the first-ever all-electric vehicle to wear a Lamborghini badge. If this model gets the nod, it would complete Lamborghini’s long-game plan of offering a four-model lineup that also includes the Aventador, Huracan, and Urus SUV. A four-door Lamborghini model also has the potential to alter the current electric saloon landscape in the auto industry. That’s a scenario I can’t wait to see unfold in the coming years.
The Next-Gen Aventador Won’t Be Based on the New Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The Lamborghini Sian took us by surprise with a futuristic design spiced up by Countach-inspired features and an innovative hybrid drivetrain. And needless to say, this supercar looks extremely cool and I’m hoping it previews a new design language for the Italian brand. Sadly, it seems that it might not be the case, at least not for the next-generation Aventador (or whatever name it will have). That’s the word from Lambo design boss Mitja Borkert, who made a point to stress that the Sian won’t inspired the supercar that will replace the Aventador.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor Won’t Have the Sian’s Supercapacitor Tech But It Will Have Something Special
Launched at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Lamborghini Sian ticked a lot of boxes for Sant’Agata Bolognese. It’s the fastest Lambo ever made and also the first hybrid car to wear the raging bull logo, but it won’t pass on its technology to the upcoming Aventador replacement.
The Lamborghini Sian - renamed to Sian FKP 37 to honor the memory of Ferdinand K. Piech - is the first car to employ a supercapacitor system instead of the run-of-the-mill Lithium-ion battery pack. The solution has been adopted by Lamborghini in the name of performance, but not necessarily range, so it’s not suitable for a whatever will come next after the Aventador. Let us explain.
Lamborghini Doesn’t Have a Plug-in Hybrid Supercar Yet and There’s a Damn Good Reason Why
Just as the entire supercar world found itself drawn into the world of hybridization, Lamborghini has steadfastly stood its ground, showing unfailing commitment to its yoke of naturally aspirated V-10 and V-12 engines. That’s all about to change, though, now that the higher-ups at Sant’Agata Bolognese have confirmed plans to launch its first-ever plug-in hybrid hypercar. Don’t look now, but the latest intel surrounding this upcoming model has ties to both the Aventador and the Terzo Millennio Concept that Lambo proudly showed off back in 2017. What does the Italian automaker have in store for the rest of the hypercar world? A game-changer of unworldly proportions.
Is Lamborghini Planning To Resuscitate The Iconic 1986 LM002?
The Italian automaker, known for creating raging bulls that have been every child’s dream at some point in life, is actually known for much more than just the super fast hypercars it is known for lately. Speak to the Generation X folks, and they will reminisce Lamborghini as a company that once used to build a hardcore truck that made them go weak in the knees. Fast forward to 2019, and the company is actually considering the prospect of building an SUV that falls in line with the iconic LM002. Time to pop that bottle of 1986 Disaronno again!
2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most extreme iteration of the company’s range-topping supercar. The SVJ combines the complex aerodynamic systems first introduced on the Huracan Performante with the "Jota" badge, first used on the Miura and then revived for the Diablo. A Roadster version of the SVJ will follow in 2019.
Lambo has yet to confirm that a drop-top version of SVJ is underway, but has already sent a certification request to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for such a model. The SVJ Roadster is one of four cars certified by CARB for the 2019 model year. This also means that the drop-top is only a few months away and will likely to break cover in early 2019. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table from the review below.
Updated 03/12/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster that we took during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of the page!
A Successor to the Lamborghini Espada Could Hit the Market by 2025
Lamborghini Wants to Take on the Aston Martin Valkyrie and McLaren Senna!
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Domenicali has said that Lamborghini is looking at developing a new high-end niche hypercar with “extreme-aero”. The car would compete with the likes of the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the McLaren Senna. I would say that its buyers would probably consider that delayed Mercedes-AMG One as well. Nevertheless, the new mad, extreme Lamborghini may well be on its way. It would be the maddest, wildest, and naughtiest Lamborghini of all time. Can’t get better than that, can it now?
Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Gets A Facelift
Have you ever heard of supercars getting mid-life facelifts? The Lamborghini Huracan is an exception. The car has been spied twice with heavy camouflage, clearly indicating that the Huracan is being refreshed for the market. The last update seen on the Huracan range was at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, when Lamborghini introduced the Spyder Performante, but now it looks like theHuracan Spyder is due for some changes inside and out. Get ready to witness the Huracan’s rebirth!
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.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is All But Confirmed
The Lambo Aventador SVJ, the world’s fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of August 2018, will soon be offered as a roadster. Shocking, huh? Obviously not. As soon as the coupe debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, we knew that the SVJ was scheduled to lose its roof sooner than later.
2019 ARES Project Panther
Although it’s just a few years old, ARES Design is already creating a bit of a name for itself. Founded back in 2014 by Dany Bahar, former CEO at Lotus, the firm started out as a customization shop for high-end automobiles. Now, however, ARES Design is looking to break into the world of boutique supercar production, and Project Panther is its first effort to step up to the big leagues.
Continue reading to learn more about the ARES Project Panther.
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. We have seen glimpses of it stretching its V-12 over the Nurburgring more than once, with its last effort actually being the most incredible one. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has become the world’s fastest production car to ever visit the Nurburgring.
To achieve such an extraordinary goal, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ received a number of exceptional improvements over the previous best Lambo - the Aventador S and the Aventador SV. I am listing must-know facts about the stunning Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
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.
