Lamborghini’s V-12 Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon
The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 wasn’t brought to life just because Lamborghini had a fraction of its yearly budget left in the tank and wanted to burn through it. Now more than ever, it’s clear that the Aventador-based Sián was created with an eye on the brand’s future.
More precisely, the brand’s future in relation to ICEs, and specifically, to its V-12 engine which according to a new report, will live on to throne inside the Aventador’s replacement, albeit as part of an electrified powertrain.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO
The 2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO is a track-prepped version of the company’s familiar, entry-level supercar. Derived from Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and Huracan GT3 EVO race cars, the 2021 Huracan STO is the most radical road-legal version of the supercar yet. It packs a V-10 engine with 631 horsepower, a carbon-fiber body, a no-nonsense interior, and an aerodynamic package that makes it insanely quick and nimble on the race track. What sets it apart from the Huracan Performante and how fast it is? Let’s find out in the review below.
These Lamborghini Headphones Would Go Really Well With Your New Urus SUV
The special edition headphones are based on two of Master & Dynamic’s most celebrated products: the MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones and the MW07 Plus True Wireless Earphones. Both products are dressed to the nines in Lamborghini branding and just like the Italian supercars that come out of Sant’Agata, the headphones carry premium pricing, ranging from $450 to close to $700. The Lambo headphones and earphones are now available on the online stores of Lamborghini and Master & Dynamic.
This Lamborghini Countach is Marlboro Red and Has a Lexus Twin-Turbo V-8
The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most famous out of all of the supercars to have come out of the 20th century. With its Gandini-penned wedge-shape design that became the standard for what a supercar should look like, the Countach really was one of those cars that looked better than they went. As such, Lamborghini tried to make it even more dramatic as the years rolled by but failed miserably at the job. Could this tobacco-liveried replica succeed where Lamborghini failed?
Lamborghini Is About to Reveal Yet Another Huracan Spin-Off
The Lamborghini Huracan is already six years old as of 2020, but it’s not going away anytime soon. Just like its predecessor, the Gallardo, the Huracan could remain in production for up to 10 years. But the really good news is that Lambo is about to unveil yet another version of its entry-level supercar. And not just a slightly beefed-up Huracan, but a track-prepped model that could be greater than the already cool Performante. According to a teaser released by the brand, the new Huracan model will be unveiled on November 18. But what could it be?
Restoring a Lamborghini Countach Die-Cast Is Hard Work, But The Result Will Leave You Drooling
We’re so used to buying a new thing to replace a broken one that we’ve forgot all about the art of repairing something. Luckily, not all videos on YouTube are about Mustangs hitting the crowd while leaving car meets.
Good Restore, for example, has developed quite a following by doing exactly what the name says: restoring to perfection old, rusty die-cast models. Today’s patient is a beaten-up Lamborghini Countach and its transformation is simply mesmerizing.
Lamborghini Fluo Capsule - Making the Gorgeous Huracan EVO Brighter and Bolder
In what is a quintessential thing that Lamborghini would do, the creators of blood-pressure raising supercars is dipping into more paint colors to entice would-be buyers. The new collection of colors is called the Fluo Capsule, and it’s made up of fluorescent, matte-finish colors with matching interiors.
The Fluo Capsule is available for 2021 model-year Lamborghini Huracan Evos.
Watch a Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi 80 V8 BiTurbo Duke It Out Autocross Style
Lamborghini never built a car with autocross or rally racing in mind. Other types of racing, like GT3, for example, are covered by Sant’Agata Bolognese via its Squadra Corse arm, which races the Huracan GT3 Evo on various tracks around the world. Autocross, however, wasn’t and isn’t on Lamborghini’s list.
Eddie van Halen Once Owned The Coolest Lamborghini Miura In The World
The Lamborghini Miura was Lamborghini’s brash, unlawful, in-your-face statement that Ferrari is no longer cool. As the first modern supercar and the first mid-engined production car, the Miura set the tone for everything that came after it. Similarly, Californian hard rock and heavy metal group Van Halen revolutionized the genre with its brash, unlawful, in-your-face debut album that came out in 1978. It signaled the change of the guards as the new boys walked in with steps as loud as Eddie Van Halen’s guitar licks. A few years later, these two worlds collided.
Amazing Car for Sale: 1989 Lamborghini LM002 - The Real Lamborghini SUV
When we talk about Lamborghini’s history, the Miura, Countach, the 350 GT, and the Espada come to mind. One model, however, that barely makes it to the conversation is the LM002 – the company’s off-road truck.
This may come as a surprise for the non-Lamborghini fanboys, but yes, the Italian automaker produced an off-road truck in the past. Lamborghini made the LM002 between 1986 and 1993 and, surprisingly, only 328 examples were built. Of these, 49 were built for the U.S. market. Now, one of them has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer’s auction and we can’t stop admiring it.
This Video Will Make You a Lamborghini Miura Expert
Ferruccio Lamborghini established his sports car company in 1963 following a conflict with Enzo Ferrari over the clutch of the 250 GT. Lambo launched its first production model the 350 GT, in 1964, while the upgraded 400 GT followed in 1966. But in 1965, the company’s top engineers began working on a race-inspired vehicle with a mid-engined layout.
The result of this effort debuted in 1966 as the Miura, arguably the most iconic car built by Lamborghini. Although it wasn’t the first road-legal mid-engined car, the Miura was the fastest production vehicle and set the standard for high-performance sports cars and supercars. This new video by ISSIMI pays tribute to the car that changed the world in 1966.
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.
Someone Created the Love Child Between the Ferrari F40 and the Lamborghini Countach And It’s Not That Shocking
In the late ’80s, you most likely had either a Ferrari F40 or a Lamborghini Countach poster hanging on your wall. The likelihood of someone having both of these supercars hanging on his or her walls is slim simply because these were such different cars.
While the F40 was all about form following function, the Countach was the polar opposite as the over-the-top styling was not matched by either the driving experience or the performance. So, how do you feel about Abimelec Arellano’s attempt to blend the two into one?
Uh-Oh! Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Ducati Future Lies Under Doubt
Earlier this month we heard rumors that the Volkswagen Group wants to transfer the Bugatti brand to Croatian company Rimac Automibili. The transaction would turn Bugatti into an EV company, but it would also give Porsche access to Rimac’s high-performance electric drivetrain.
The same report claimed that Volkswagen is also considering selling Lamborghini and Ducati. Now, Volkswagen confirmed that at least three brands are under review and a decision about their future will be taken in a management board meeting in November. The group is currently discussing the future of Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Ducati.
2021 Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule
Lamborghini is far from a subtle automaker. None of its models can fly under the radar, and even if you ask for a toned-down color, a Lamborghini will still stand out from the pack because, well, it’s a Lamborghini. Of course, that’s not going to stop the Italian automaker from rolling out a new options package for the Urus that’ll supposedly succeed in toning down the SUV’s looks.
The new options package is called Graphite Capsule, and it includes four new exterior paint colors, neon highlights in the body and interior, and an assortment of other visual highlights. Opt for the Graphite Capsule package on your 2021 Lamborghini Urus and you stand to pay at least $218,009. That’s a healthy increase — more than $15,000 — from the price of a 2020 Urus. Then again, you are still paying for a Lamborghini. Those are expensive last we checked.
Doug DeMuro Reviews the Lamborghini Centenario And You Have to See It
The Lamborghini Centenario shook the world at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, when it was unveiled to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday. Aside the waves it sent through every car-centric medium at the time, it’s even more striking today, four years later, as it continues to look like an alien of a car.
Cool Car for Sale: 1991 Lamborghini Diablo GT Tribute
Lamborghini only concocted the Diablo GT late in the supercar’s career but ask any Lambo nut and they’ll tell you it was well worth the wait. The GT had a radically tweaked body kit, a bigger engine, and a spartan interior.
Sadly, the U.S. didn’t get the GT as it was an Europe-only affair, but some eager owners imported a few examples Stateside. The car we’re showing you today is not a pure Diablo GT, but one that was redesigned to look like it.
How Much Does a Lamborghini Cost?
Lamborghini models are expensive. Let’s get that out of the way. Most people already know that, and just as many are resigned to the reality that not everyone can afford a Lamborghini.
A Huracan EVO RWD, for example, is the cheapest Lamborghini model that’s currently in the market. The price for the rear-wheel-drive supercar starts at $208,000, but that’s just for the base model.
Options come aplenty for a model like this, and the final price could balloon depending on how many options, packages, and/or accessories are thrown into the deal. To give you an idea of how much each Lamborghini costs, we’ve compiled a list detailing each model that’s currently in the market and a couple of special edition Lambos that were released in the past few years.
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.
