Crazy Race: Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TTRS vs Golf R
It’s always interesting to see how different engine layouts compare to one another. It’s even more interesting when a high-performance SUV goes up against some of the best compact sports cars and a capable hot hatchback. This is exactly the case with this drag race from Carwow, where a Lamborghini Urus is being challenged by a Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi TT RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R.
Watch The Lamborghini Urus Fight It Out Against The Audi TT-RS, The Porsche Cayman GT4, and The Volkswagen Golf R
Mat Watson and his team from ‘Carwow’ pit four very different vehicles against each other on the drag strip. The mix included a Lamborghini Urus, a Porsche Cayman GT4, an Audi TT-RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R. With the difference in size, shape, weight, and engine capacities, the race is quite unpredictable.
Special Treatment? Italy Seeks Exemption From EU Engine Ban for Ferrari and Lamborghini
The European Union’s comprehensive ban on combustion engines is set to go into force in 2035, but the Italian government is hoping for an exception for supercar makers. Italy is trying to negotiate with the European Union and is seeking to protect supercar makers like Ferrari and Lamborghini from the planned phase-out of combustion engine vehicles altogether. According to a Bloomberg post, Italy wants to shield Ferrari and Lamborghini from this potential European Union ban on gas-powered engines.

Lamborghini Huracan Rayo Wants To Have A Go At 300 MPH
I think we can all agree that the Lamborghini Huracan is a very capable supercar out of the box. Be that as it may, the people at 7X Design thought it would be a good idea to exploit the car’s hardware to its fullest. Moreover, with help from Envisage Group from Coventry, the Huracan received a bespoke new body that seems to have been inspired by the Miura. The results, both visually and performance-wise, are mind-blowing.
This Trio Of Marcello Gandini-designed Classic Cars Is Going Under The Hammer
Marcello Gandini needs no introduction. He has tens of models to his name and many of them have achieved legendary status. Now, three of his creations, namely the Lamborghini Jarama, the Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, and the Alfa-Romeo Montreal will be up for sale at an upcoming auction by Stratas Auctions. Collectively, they are expected to fetch north of $800,000.
Lamborghini’s V-12 Super Hybrid - Infused With Sian DNA and Prepped for a Summer Debut
A few months ago, Lamborghini made it very clear that it will not give up on the V-12 engine. In fact, not one but two Lamborghini V-12 models are set to debut in the near future, one of which was the Ultimae. We also know what the other one is going to be. The Lamborghini Aventador is officially a decade old and a successor is due. As we mentioned a while back, the Aventador successor will feature a V-12 hybrid powertrain, based on the Sian. Moreover, according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann, it will debut later this year.
Unfinished Lamborghini Diablo Replica Is Off to a Great Start
You have to admit that the automotive world would be slightly boring if it wasn’t for people with strange ideas who own sheds. I myself don’t have a shed, and even if I had, I would have been too busy writing articles like this. Apparently, that wasn’t the case with someone from Lawrenceville, Georgia, who decided to make his own very convincing replica of a Lamborghini Diablo. Unfortunately for the car, he never finished it, but for $30,000, someone else could.
A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan
The Ram 1500 TRX is primarily an off-road performance truck, but with specs like a supercharged V-8, 700+ horses, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, etc. there’s no reason why it shouldn’t hit the drag strip. So, Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ decided to have it go up against a Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD for a series of drag races. The EVO is obviously a lot more agile and suited to the track, but there’s a catch – the TRX isn’t stock. It puts out 1,000 horses; almost 30-percent more than its stock output! Which car do you have your money on?
These Renderings Show Us What The New Lamborghini Countach Could Have Looked Like
Lamborghini revealed the new Countach earlier this month and it was the talk of the town for a long time. The automaker revived the moniker on its 50th anniversary and based it on the Aventador. While the new Countach came with a lot of elements from the yesteryear model, it wasn’t as old school as a lot of people expected it to be. For a modern car with retro vibes, it did well. But, for a moniker as beloved as the Countach, the car missed out on a lot of stuff.
Since the looks drew polarizing opinions, some rendering artists took it upon themselves to show us what the Countach could’ve looked like if it was a lot more retro and old-school. One of them is Siim Pärn who shared his renderings with us.
These Cool Images Of The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 Are Wallpaper-Worthy
Lamborghini took the wraps off the 2022 Countach last week and it stirred the proverbial pot. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Countach and the Italian automaker decided to do something special for it. The Countach is based on the Aventador and has elements of the Sian, and of course, a lot of cues of the original Countach as well.
2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston
From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.
Cool Car For Sale: 2001 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT in Monterey Blue
Lately, we have been turning a lot of attention towards Lamborghini. Something that was made inevitable with the revival of the iconic Lamborghini Countach. The Gandini-designed Countach was produced for 16 years before it was finally replaced by the Lamborghini Diablo. Although the latter did not manage to achieve quite the same status as its predecessor, it was better in every measurable way. With this in mind, a very clean example of the Diablo just popped up for sale, at a surprisingly low price.

The Complete Chronology of Lamborghini Countach And Its Versions
We have said many times that Lamborghini Countach is a car that deserves to make a comeback. Lamborghini proudly celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Countach, by launching a series about the model‘s history. The original Countach was produced for 16 years, and now that the automaker is reviving the legendary model, it’s worth revisiting all versions of the original car, including some of the very obscure ones.
2021 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 - A Sian And Aventador With The Original Countach’s Design Cues
When Lamborghini announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback, it took the whole world by storm. The company teased in twice in quick succession earlier this week, hoping to create some hype before eventually unveiling it. However, the car was leaked right after the Italian automaker teased it on its social media. A day later, Lamborghini has taken the wraps off it.
The Countach nameplate is revived on its 50th anniversary and it seems to be the Sian and Aventador’s lovechild with the design cues of the original Countach. It is powered by a V-12 mill with an electric motor that puts out over 800 horses. It will be limited to just 112 examples.
These Cars Pack The Smallest V-8 Engines Ever Put In a Road-Going Vehicle
For as long as most of us can remember, V-8 engines are associated with big power and big displacement. Although this is true for most of them, there are those that don’t share their bigger counterparts’ performance capabilities. Nevertheless, some of these engines pack a surprising amount of punch for their size. On top of that, you can find a lot of them in some pretty epic vehicles.
Lamborghini Teases The New Countach Yet Again
Update 08/12/2021: The new Lamborghini Countach is leaked. Scroll down to see the images and learn more about it
Lamborghini took the whole world by surprise when it announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback three decades after it was sent into oblivion.

Lamborghini took to Instagram to upload three more images of the upcoming Countach that suggest that it could arrive sooner than expected. Are you as pumped up about it as we are?

The Huracan Could Be The Most Emotional Lamborghini Ever Built
The Lamborghini Huracan STO never got the reveal it deserved thanks to the COVID pandemic. It’s been nearly a year, and the STO has finally made its way to its natural habitat – the race track. The days of delayed test drives are over, and – according to Lamborghini – the feedback was “positive all-around” thanks to the STO’s delivery of absolute performance and the way it evokes emotion.
This isn’t really surprising, though, as the STO is, arguably, the best Huracan ever built. Lamborghini’s tried and true 5.2-liter V-10 pumps out 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. With that kind of power, you’ll get to 62 mph (100 km/h) in three-seconds flat when you put the hammer down. If you keep going, it takes just nine seconds for the sprint from 0 to 124 mph! That said, the STO is a bit slower than the Performante, with a top speed of 190 mph vs. 202 mph, but the STO is designed to rip corners apart with a vengeance anyway. The first year of STO production is already sold out, but you can still pay up $327,838 to get in on the next production year.
Lamborghini Is Resurrecting One Of Its Most Iconic Names
Sit down, if you are standing up, and take a deep breath because one of the most renowned cars of all time is supposedly getting a revival; and no, this is not a joke. A new Lamborghini Countach is en route, and the Italian automaker has officially confirmed it.
The Countach turns 50 this year, and it was only last week that we brought you a story on a designer re-imagining a Neo-Retro Lamborghini Countach. The rendering featured the sleek design aesthetic of early iterations of the Supercar, balanced with hints of modernity and performance.
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.
