Rendering: This Lamborghini Pickup Doesn’t Care About Your Feelings
The Cheetah was Lamborghini’s first attempt to develop an off-road vehicle. The model is based on FMC’s XR311 prototype developed for the military in 1970 and featured a fiberglass body. Under the hood, it had a 5.9-liter Chrysler engine that delivered a total of 180 horsepower. However, the fact that the engine was placed in the rear gave the Cheetah very poor handling characteristics and the U.S. Army never got to test it. Instead of the Cheetah, Lamborghini developed the LM002 - a model with a similar design and a 12-cylinder engine from the Lamborghini Countach mounted in the front.
Neither of those models were real trucks. And with Lamborghini offering an SUV now, the idea of and Lamborghini truck has been floating around. Our sister site, HotCars, tried to imagine what a Lamborghini truck would look like, and the result is quite impressive.
Don’t Expect Electric Lamborghinis to Be All That Different
Hardcore performance automakers like Lamborghini have yet to enter the electrified car market, and the days of the thirsty V-10s and V-12s are coming to an end. Lamborghini design boss, Mitja Borkert, has now confirmed that the brand’s design will not change drastically when the new EV comes in around 2028 and that future cars will still “look like spaceships.”
Fastest SUVs In The World
The general consensus is that SUVs are more practical vehicles than they are something that fills the adrenaline cravings. They’re also considered as big, bulky vehicles that can tow stuff or even be taken offroad. If you want the performance, you can get yourself sports cars or supercars, or even hot hatches, for that matter. But, there are some SUVs that can put even some of the world’s best sports cars to shame with their performance. Automakers are creating straight-line monsters that can achieve speeds of well over 180 mph despite their big builds, poor aerodynamic efficiency, and heavy curb weights. Here’s a list of the fastest SUVs in the world in 2022:
Novitec Aims to Redefine Perfection With Its Latest Update for the Lamborghini Huracan STO
Ever since its launch, the STO (Super Trofeo Omologato) has been described as the most radical road-legal version of the Huracan yet. The question is: how do you transform something as sporty as the Huracan STO into something that’s even more dynamic and thrilling? The answer is simple: you ask Novitec to come up with a solution!
Its latest package, while it makes no updates under the hood, transforms both the exterior and the interior look of the supercar and includes a new exhaust system that will make the V-10 sound a lot better. If we were to look at previous Novitec jobs, this is just the first step and updates for the engine are just around the corner.
Mansory Venatus Evo S Is the Coolest Looking Lamborghini Urus Ever Made
The Urus is about to receive a facelift, and will soon be known as the Urus Evo. The official debut should happen before the end of 2022, but the Evo version still won’t be as aggressive as a Lamborghini should be. Fortunately, where automakers decide to stop, there are tuners to come in and pick up where they left off. This Lamborghini Urus by Mansory, dubbed the Venatus EVO S, is a prime example of this.
This Lamborghini-Powered 1995 Audi S6 Is the Most Ridiculous Thing You’ll Ever See
If you have the know-how and the tools, modifying a german car can bring a truly special creation to life. However, even with the necessary skills and tools, completing any major modifications, such as an engine swap, will still give you a headache for hours on end. A man named Joel Francisco has completed just that. In short, he swapped the 5.2-liter V-10 engine from a C6 (2006-2011 model year) Audi S6 into a 1995 Audi S6 wagon. Judging from the YouTube video, it seems to be as crazy as one would imagine it is, as it can spin all four wheels on a launch.
This is the Coolest Homemade Lamborghini You’ll Ever See
Lamborghini revealed the Vision GT Concept back in 2019, and it was arguably one of the most radical designs from the Italian automaker. Lamborghini is known for sharp, aggressive styling, so a car that made other models with the portfolio looks like doodles says how bold the Vision GT Concept is. Although this isn’t a car that you can buy or even see it in real, for that matter, but this particular gentleman owns it. Confused? We’re talking about a wooden homebuilt replica he made that can actually be driven! Crazy, isn’t it?
Rendering: Is this the Electric Lamborghini Supercar of the Future?
Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann confirms that 2022 will be the last year for traditional Lamborghinis as the brand takes “the last step of internal combustion engines”. However, there’s no need to be concerned because Lamborghini’s production-heavy vehicles, such as the Aventador, Huracán, and Urus, will all be plug-in hybrids by 2024. But what about the Lamborghini EV scheduled to launch in 2028? Here is an independent rendering from Wang Lei that sheds some light on what we might expect, and it seems to be far from the 2+2 two-door coupe that was previously suggested to be in the works.
Rendering: This is the Ultimate Off-Road Lamborghini
Just like every other supercar manufacturer, Lamborghini wasn’t immune to the SUV craze. After all, SUVs are what people buy these days, and it’s these types of vehicles that will finance these brands to continue making the supercars that we adore. These vehicles also have a degree of off-road capability that, let’s be honest, will barely be used by their owners. Someone, however, tried to design a Lamborghini that is probably no good on-road but instead is one heck of a beast off-road. Enter the Lamborghini LMXX2
Video: Witness the Most Ridiculous Lamborghini Takeover Ever
If you are binging YouTube car videos, you have probably come across Tim Burton’s channel, Shmee150. The guy is pretty much anywhere high-performance cars can be found, and sometimes he’s among the very first to see them in person. This time, the action is happening at Lamborghini Paramus, New Jersey, where at least 70 Lamborghinis of all shapes and sizes are gathering for a massive takeover. Straight pipes, twin-turbo V-8s, burbly V-10s, and shrieking V-12s are the focal points today as you will find out below.
Spyshots: An Early Look at the 2023 Lamborghini Urus Evo
With Ferrari preparing to unveil the Purosangue with more than 800 horsepower under the hood, we were expecting Lamborghini to do something about its 640-horsepower Urus in order to stay relevant. However, Ferrari shows no fear, as this updated Huracan Evo shows that very little is changing for the brand’s resident super SUV.
This is the First Teaser for Lamborghini’s New LMDh Race Car that Will Debut in 2024
Since 2015, Lamborghini has competed in various series for GT3-specification cars where it accumulated more than 40 titles and some unique achievements. It is the only manufacturer in the world that won the legendary 24 Hours at Daytona three times in a row (It happened between 2018 and 2020). The company also has its own Super Trofeo series around the world. As of 2024, however, Lamborghini will compete in both the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Hypercar class and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s GTP class. Of course, its job won’t be very easy, as it will have to face tough competition from automakers like Porsche and Cadillac.
Lamborghini is Learning to Embrace the Challenges and Advantages of Going Electric
Brands like Lamborghini are synonymous with thoughts of exotic beauty, performance, and emotion. It’s that way by design, and all three factors have been brought together time and time again to form some of the world’s greatest cars. This holds true for modern cars like the Lamborghini Aventador, for example, or the Lamborghini Sian and the Lamborghini Urus. But, even if you look to the past, models like the Gallardo, Diablo, and the Murcielago all follow the same basic recipe: performance and beauty come together to create an emotional experience – an experience that is capable of striking deep into the heart of nearly every automotive enthusiast on the planet.
This time-tested recipe, however great it is, seems to be in danger as the industry shifts into full-scale electrification. Venturing into the unknown leaves us with doubt that the element of emotion can survive in a world without internal combustion engines. The truth is that it can, and it will, because brands like Lamborghini won’t let it die.
Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 - The Race Car That Cannot Be Raced
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is one of the craziest spin-offs of the now-discontinued Lamborghini Aventador. While the standard lineup of the Raging Bull is exciting enough for most, those craving the genuine, visceral feel of a proper race car can opt for the radical Essenza SCV12. But, there lies the problem. The Essenza is a track-only race car, but it has no racing series to compete in.
Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica - the Spiritual Successor to the Gallardo Balboni
The Huracan is nearing the end of its life cycle, and the tradition at Lamborghini dictates that the last few years are reserved for special editions - a bucketload of them. A case in point is the Aventador that recently added its "final" iteration to the lineup with the Aventador Ultimae. Huracan’s predecessor, the Gallardo, was put through a similar regime after its nine-year production run. And now, Lamborghini has introduced the 11th iteration of the Huracan with the Tecnica.
2022 Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae LP 780-4
Lamborghini has unveiled the very last Aventador, the LP780-4 ULTIMAE. It is the latest update to Lamborghini’s flagship model, joining the ranks of the LP700-4 and S. But, it represents more than just the end of the Aventador name, so it’s a lot more special than you might think.
Updated 05/03/2022: Lamborghini took both, the Aventador Ultimae Coupe and Roadster, out for a nice trip on the roads of Emilia Romagna and the Marches. The results are stunning and you can see it in our latest picture gallery. Limited to only 350 coupes and 250 roadsters, the production of the Ultimae - and the traditional V-12 engine - will come to an end in the upcoming months.
Feast Your Eyes - Lamborghini Debuts The New Huracán GT3 EVO2 Race Car
Lamborghini introduced the Huracan Super Trofeo back in 2014 to enter the world of GT3 racing. In 2017, the Super Trofeo EVO was revealed. Last year, the Italian automaker previewed the Super Trofeo EVO2. Fast forward to the present day, and the company has come up with the Huracan GT3 EVO2. It is in collaboration with the Squadra Corse of Sant’Agata Bolognese, and will be available as a new car, or as an upgrade package for existing GT3 EVO cars.
You Will Never See a 1974 Lamborghini Countach Being Driven Like This In The Real World
For most of us, owning or driving an iconic classic like the Lamborghini Countach is, sadly, a distant mirage. Even those few that can afford to own one, preserve them and, more often than not, turn these automotive legends into “garage queens”. Things are quite different in the meta-verse, however, where thrashing any car has zero consequences. We don’t normally post gameplay footage, but when you have a game that looks as good as Gran Turismo 7, it’s all worth it. Enjoy as this 1974 Countach gets virtually put through its paces on an Italian racetrack.
Digital Artist Re-Imagines Lambo’s Upcoming V-12 Hybrid
The days of a raging bull with a V-12 as we know it are numbered. However, we do know that as a last hurrah, Lambo will pair its naturally aspirated V-12 along with a hybrid system of some sort. Test mules of the Hybrid-V12 Lambo have already been spotted. While that car is still some time away, a digital artist (uness_design) re-imagines the upcoming flagship V-12 Hybrid with these renders. Let’s break down the design.
Lamborghini Just Built Its 20,000th Huracan; First Lamborghini Model To Achieve This Incredible Milestone!
Lamborghini announced the Huracan for the first time back in 2014 and it only needed eight years to build its 20,000th example. We are talking about an STO model finished in Grigio Acheso Matt and built for a client in the Principality of Monaco.
During its eight years of history, the Huracan saw twelve road and three racing versions. Since 2014, 71-percent of customers have chosen the coupé versions and 29-percent opted for the open-air derivatives. As expected, the market with the highest sales is the U.S., followed by the U.K. and Greater China.
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.
