The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 Lego Technic Kit Is Probably Everything Your Life Has Been Missing
Major Lego sets don’t come too often but it turns out 2020 isn’t just about world pandemics and home isolation. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the latest collabo between Lego and Lamborghini, nicely wrapped up as a Technic set - pretty much the highest echelon of builds Lego makes currently. Enter the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic set.
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.
Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder Hits The Market With Unique Looks
The Lamborghini Huracan is already an emblematic nameplate and the company’s best selling model to date. However, some die-hard fans aren’t exactly happy with its standard four-wheel-drive layout, so Lambo introduced a rear-wheel-drive model in 2016. Come 2020, and the updated Evo model was also launched in RWD trim. The coupe arrived first in January, but the Spyder followed up in May, just in time for the summer. Just like its coupe counterpart, the Spyder RWD is not as powerful as its AWD sibling, but it offers that old-school RWD feeling that some enthusiasts are after in a Lamborghini.
German Tuner HGP Has Managed to Make the Lamborghini Urus A 1,000-Horsepower Monster
With 650 horsepower at its disposal and a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 3.5 seconds, the Lamborghini Urus is one of the fastest and most powerful production SUVs in stock form. It’s not as powerful as the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, rated at 707 horsepower, but you can now get a more potent Urus thanks to HGP, who tuned the 4.0-liter V-8 engine to deliver almost 1,000 horsepower. The Germans have just released a Stage 2 kit for the Urus that raises output to an amazing 947 horsepower and 922 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is one of those cars that arguably needs little to no improvement. It already packs a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 631 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. It can split a 60 mph time in just 2.9 seconds and it peaks at a top speed of 201 mph. Lamborghini set up the Huracan EVO to be a monster, but as we’ve seen over and over again, even the fiercest of monsters have levels that they can go up to. That job doesn’t fall on Lamborghini; that falls on the shoulders of aftermarket tuners like Novitec.
The Italian aftermarket company is known far and wide for its elaborate programs for Italy’s finest exotics. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Prancing Horse or a Raging Bull, Novitec can build tuning programs like nobody’s business. Take this kit for the aforementioned Huracan EVO, for example. It’s not enough that the mighty Lambo is what it is; Novitec wants to make it better, and that’s exactly what it did. From an aerodynamic body kit to a new set of wheels to an engine upgrade program, Novitec’s aftermarket program for the Huracan EVO is as extensive as it gets.
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 Steps Up in Fight Against COVID-19, Starts Production of Face Masks and Shields
Add Lamborghini to the growing list of automakers that have stepped up to help medical frontliners in their fight against the COVID-19 virus. The Italian automaker has started production of face masks and protective shields for health workers at Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna, Italy.
Lamborghini is targeting a production rate of 1,000 face masks and 200 face shields per day. The supercar brand is the latest automaker to lend a helping hand to the medical frontliners who have had to fight a staggering number of recorded cases in Italy. As of April 1, 2020, Italy has recorded 110,574 cases of those affected by the virus. Of that figure, a total of 13,155 people have died while 16,874 have recovered from the deadly virus.
This Cyberpunk Countach Is The Electric Lamborghini We Need
Just so we’re clear, Lamborghini isn’t keen on jumping head-first into the electrification bandwagon. So far, Sant’Agata Bolognese has been keen on tipping its toes into the ocean with the Aventador-based, V-12-hybrid Sian FKP 37, but the company’s officials are adamant that an all-electric Lambo won’t arrive earlier than 2026.
If that’s the case, then let’s play the following scenario: the year is 2090, Lamborghini has a couple of EV supercars on offer, yet an extremely affluent and eccentric collector decides to retrofit his Lamborghini Countach with an all-electric powertrain and a cyberpunk-like appearance. What would that look like?
What Automakers Are Affected by the COVID-19 Outbreak?
As the novel coronavirus - known as COVID-19 - continues to spread across the world, governments are taking extreme measures. Several countries have declared a state of emergency, companies are sending their employees to work from home, while some businesses are shutting down over the pandemic. The outbreak and the panic have also taken a toll on the auto industry, with at least seven major carmakers having decided to halt production in Europe.
2020 Lamborghini Urus Venatus by Mansory
Mansory has always been a constant presence at the Geneva Motor Show, but this year the tuner had to shake its tail feather online, just like every other carmaker out there. And shake it did, by unveiling a new widebody kit for the Lamborghini Urus.
It’s called Venatus, which is Latin for hunting or to hunt. On that note, let’s take a closer look at the Bavarian tuner’s latest work on the Urus.
How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go in a Half Mile?
Lamborghinis are very fast, and that’s no secret. Pretty quick off the line, too. Even the big-boned Urus can hold its own in a 0-62 mph sprint, which it can dispatch in 3.6 seconds. But this video isn’t about the Lamborghini Urus. It’s about one of Lambo’s pure-breed, low-slung supercars and its ability to stretch its legs in the half mile.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster came out four years ago with bold claims: 50 kilos (110 pounds) lighter than the regular Roadster, heavily infused with CFRP (carbon-fiber reinforced polymer) and bonkers aero upgrades. But how well can it perform in a half-mile sprint?
2008 Lamborghini Reventón
The Lamborghini Reventon isn’t just a styling exercise that sits on the chassis and drivetrain of the Murcielago LP60. It’s the pole bearer for a new direction in Lamborghini design, a direction whose cues can be seen in future Lamborghini models such as the restyled Gallardo or the Aventador. The source of inspiration? Fighter jets.
Marcello Gandini all but dictated that all V-12 Lamborghinis have to be brash and dramatic with razor-sharp edges, clean surfaces, and aggressive angles all around. The Italian manufacturer didn’t have a visual identity before the year 1974 so they went with it, seeing how well the wedge-shaped mid-engined supercar faired. Then came the Diablo, then the Murcielago, all of which following the same path. However, with each new car, Lamborghini refined the edges, added a few curves here and there, made things softer.
The Reventon looked like a return to the roots. It looked like an F117A Blackhawk with that bespoke grayish green color covering all of the pointy surfaces and, for all the work Lamborghini put into the car’s exterior, you can forgive them for leaving the underpinnings taken straight from the Murcielago LP640 untouched. Just 20 examples were made a decade ago - yes, it’s that old! - and then Lamborghini set to work again cutting the roof off the car to create a Roadster version. Some thought it’s a bit weird while others love it. The going rate for one of these suggests there’s not much interest in them now they’ll still turn heads anywhere they go.
What is the Cheapest Lamborghini?
The cheapest Lamborghini is the 2019 Urus. But let’s get one thing straight: there is no such thing as cheap Lamborghinis. More affordable, to some extend, maybe, but that would be far-fetched as well. Coming back to the Lamborghini Urus, the 2019MY will set you back $200,000 MSRP. Price-wise, the Lamborghini Urus is followed in closely by the 2019 Huracán, which starts at $203,674 MSRP. The destination charge for the 2019 Urus adds another $3,995 to the bill, while the Huracán’s will see you pay $3,695 on top of the starting sticker.
What is the Sportiest Lamborghini?
The sportiest Lamborghini is the Aventador SVJ. However, and this is a big however, all Lamborghinis are tuned for exceptional dynamic performance and there’s not even one that comes anywhere near to the definition of sluggish. And guess what: the Urus SUV is just a voracious as you’d expect from a model that came out of Sant’Agata Bolognese, so there’s that. But coming back to the Aventador SVJ, it packs 770 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque coming from a V-12. It’s also poised to be a rare bird, since just 900 units will be made. Besides the power and torque credentials, the Aventador SVJ is fitted with what Lambo calls ALA. ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) is a fancy active aerodynamics system that modifies the car’s parameters for extra downforce or lower drag, depending on the scenario.
What is the Most Popular Lamborghini?
The most popular Lamborghini is the Huracán, if we are to consider sales alone. For example, in the first six months of 2018, Lamborghini shipped 2,327 cars, out of which 1,604 were Huracáns, while the Aventador pushed 673 units. Moreover, Lamborghini say its global sales take a 51 percent hike from 3,815 to 5,750. Interestingly enough, the carmaker delivered 1,761 Urus units in 2018 as a whole, so the popularity hierarchy might change if the SUV keeps up the sales pace.
What is the Most Expensive Lamborghini?
The most expensive Lamborghini is the Aventador SVJ. This is only natural, since the SVJ is Lambo’s top-of-the-line product and a performance beast to start with. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ comes with a MSRP of $517,770, but since most customers decide to throw in extra stuff, the final price for a 2019 Aventador SVJ can go to as high as $690,000.
What is the Fastest Lamborghini?
The fastest Lamborghini is the Aventador SVJ, of course. Thanks to its mighty 6.5-liter V-12 (770 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque), the SVJ accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Moreover, it can go from naught to 124 mph in just 8.6 seconds and further on to a top speed of 216 mph. But with great power comes great responsibility. Meaning that the Aventador SVJ needs just 98 feet and five inches to come to a halt from 62 mph.
Are Lamborghini Cars Reliable?
When it comes to reliability, Lamborghini cars are a very varied dish. When they don’t catch on fire on the highway, Lamborghinis rank quite high in customer reviews. The Gallardo, for example, is regarded as one of the most reliable Lambos ever built, and that rubbed off on the Huracán as well. However, Aventadors are known for their little electrical glitches, engine check lights, and suspension lift errors. Older Lamborghinis, however, are not that reliable, especially pre-1990 models.
