Lamborghini

Lamborghini, or Lamborghini Automobili S.p.A., was founded in 1963. Since then, the company has been headquartered in Sant'Agata Bolognese, in Northern Italy and to this day, it runs 145 dealerships around the world. Lamborghini is known for building some of the automotive industry's most iconic cars, including the likes of Miura, Countach, Diablo, and Murciélago, but also limited, highly-exclusive editions such as the Reventón, Sesto Elemento, Veneno, and Centenario. Modern times, however, and wacky customer preferences have determined the company to build the Urus SUV, which is marketed as the world's first SSUV (Super-SUV). Lamborghini's current lineup comprises the said Urus, joined by the Huracán and the Aventador, plus their respective declinations.

They Say Lamborghini's Chief Technical Officer Hinted at a Potential Urus Performante, But It's Probably Not Happening

They Say Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer Hinted at a Potential Urus Performante, But It’s Probably Not Happening

Will it or won’t it? That’s a question only Lamborghini can answer

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.

2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept

2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept

The race-spec Urus you’ve been waiting for!

The 2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X is a race-spec concept version of the Urus, the company’s first-ever SUV. The concept vehicle previews a full-production SUV designed for a single-brand championship that will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East. Conceived as a new "arrive and drive" experience in Lamborghini’s motorsport program, it will offer customers a complete package including the vehicle and technical support during race weekends.

Yes, the 2020 Urus ST-X will compete in a series very similar to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, reserved for race-spec Huracan models. Like all other track-bred Lambos, the 2020 Urus ST-X was designed and built by Lamborghini Squadra Corse.

Car for Sale: Gallardo-Based 2006 Lamborghini Concept S Roadster

Car for Sale: Gallardo-Based 2006 Lamborghini Concept S Roadster

The topless Gallardo we all wanted but never got

Lamborghini is known for making some of the world’s most dramatic supercars and this sure is one of the most dramatic modern Lambos, not least because it lacks the usual amenities such as a full-width windscreen or side windows. Built as a styling design that harkens back to the old-time-y speedsters, the Gallardo Concept S previewed a limited-edition model that never materialized. However, one running and driving example powered by the 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated 512-horsepower V-10 of the standard Gallardo does exist and you’re looking at it now. If you’ve missed out on the Concept S the first two times RM/Sotheby’s tried to sell it, it’ll be up for grabs once again in Abu Dhabi.

Car For Sale: 1996 Zagato Raptor

Car For Sale: 1996 Zagato Raptor

RM/Sotheby’s will sell later this month one of the most ludicrous Lamborghini Diablo-based supercars ever made

A roof that lifts up to reveal the cockpit? Check! Futuristic cues that are both strange and appealing as you’d expect from a Zagato design? Check! All the goodies from the Diablo VT including the viscous central differential allowing for AWD and the magnificent 5.7-liter V-12 putting out almost 500 horsepower? Check! A carbon-fiber body created entirely through digital design and manufacturing process? Check! The Raptor could’ve kick-started Lamborghini’s marriage with Audi in grand style at the end of the 20th century but, instead, the car you see here is the only one the Italians ever made.

It was the mid-’90s when Lamborghini realized that its ’lineup" needed to be refreshed. At the time, the company based in Sant’Agata Bolognese made only the mid-engined Diablo, successor of the Countach and a very potent car in its own right. However, the Diablo was hardly a forward-thinking car, AWD aside, and Lamborghini realized it needed to start thinking about its replacement and, on top of that, of something that could allow it to attract a wider audience. The key to increasing its client base, Lamborghini thought, would be to create a model that would sit below the Diablo in terms of performance while lacking none of that unmistakable Lamborghini DNA. The job of designing this new model, as well as the Diablo replacement, was in Zagato’s hands and the legendary design house came up with the Raptor in just four short months, fast enough to allow Lamborghini to showcase the prototype at the 1996 Geneva Auto Show. Now, this one-off coach-built wonder can be yours, providing you’ve got a million or two to spare.

Here's That Teaser of the Track-Only Aventador-Based Super Car that Lamborghini is Working On

Here’s That Teaser of the Track-Only Aventador-Based Super Car that Lamborghini is Working On

It will be the most powerful Aventador yet!

Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division is about to unleash its second bespoke model. Following last year’s introduction of the SC18 Alston, Squadra Corse is working on a track-only suspercar. It’s also based on the Aventador and the first teaser gives us a glimpse at some of the details.

How Fast Does the New Aventador Track-Only Car Have to Go to Be The Fastest Lamborghini Ever?

How Fast Does the New Aventador Track-Only Car Have to Go to Be The Fastest Lamborghini Ever?

The 200 miles per hour barrier is a thing of the past for Lambo

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 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and Urus ST-X Lego Speed Champions Set Could Be The Coolest So Far, Or Is It?

The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and Urus ST-X Lego Speed Champions Set Could Be The Coolest So Far, Or Is It?

There’s something we deeply dislike about one of the cars…

We’ve got a lot of love for Lego’s car sets, and some of our favorite desk boosters are Speed Champions-branded. Lego’s move to branch out and launch this new category back in 2015 is something we’ve been applauding from day one. The sets are small enough to build in your lunch break, and they won’t eat up as much space on your desk as a Creator set, for example. That said, the Speed Champions family just added a new member. Two, in fact: say hello to the plasticky Huracan Super Trofeo Evo and Urus ST-X.

How Much Does It Cost to Rent a Lamborghini?

How Much Does It Cost to Rent a Lamborghini?

Enough to make you unwilling to drive it like you stole it

Owning a supercar is the dream of many gearheads, but with anything coming out of Maranello or Sant’Agata Bolognese these days trading hands for well over $200,000, it’s almost impossible for most people to actually boast that they have such a car in their garage. Even a basic Porsche 718 Cayman isn’t cheap when compared to a standard Toyota Corolla or anything else that people buy in droves. That’s why your best bet is to simply rent one of these prized exotic machines. Don’t expect Camry rates when going out to get a Huracan for the weekend but, at least, you won’t have to put a second mortgage on your house to afford it.

Just picture it: you with your favorite pair of sunglasses on sitting behind the wheel of a topless Lamborghini with the engine idling, ready for your command to fling forwards towards the horizon. It sounds like one of the best dreams you can ever hope to have but that’s the issue: it’s only a dream. Supercar ownership is out of reach for most of us - unless, finally, your luck turns around and you win the lottery. Luxury car renting companies know that and are always prepared to hand you the keys of a mid-engined thoroughbred. But don’t drive it like you stole it!

The 3D-Printed Lamborghini Aventador Replica Can Now Get From Point A to Point B

The 3D-Printed Lamborghini Aventador Replica Can Now Get From Point A to Point B

Point A is the driveway and Point B is the garage. That still counts for progress.

In the past three months, the Backus garage Lamborghini build has evolved from parts being printed on three different 3D printers to a fully functional model that can run, or, at least in this case, back up from a home’s driveway to the family garage.

How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go?

How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go?

It depends a lot on the Lamborghini, but it’s usually very fast

Lamborghini made its first step on the long catwalk of the automotive world back in 1963, when, during the Turin Motor Show, Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini unveiled the 350 GTV concept. The next year, Lamborghini perfected the road-going 350 GT, which was followed shortly after by the 400 GT. But the bases of Lamborghini had been established in 1962 when Ferruccio Lamborghini bought a plot of land in Sant’Agata Bolognese with the aim to build an “ultramodern” car factory.

It was Ferruccio who started the tradition of naming his car after breeds of fighting bulls, and it was also him who inspired its engineers, designers, and mechanics to come up with cars such as the Miura, Espada, Islero, and more recently, Diablo, Countach, Gallardo, Murcielago, Huracan, and Aventador. As of late, Sant’Agata Bolognese joined the SUV craze with the Urus, which also opened a new niche, that of Super-SUVs.

So, to come back to the main topic at hand here, how fast can a Lamborghini go? To answer that, we’re going to look at some of the brand’s most prominent models, including the said Urus SUV, since it has become a sales sensation of sorts.

The 2025 Lamborghini Sedan Could Be an Overpriced Audi Inspired by the Decade-Old Estoque Concept

The 2025 Lamborghini Sedan Could Be an Overpriced Audi Inspired by the Decade-Old Estoque Concept

A lot of moving pieces would come together if this were to happen

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.

A Modern Day Lamborghini Miura - Yay or Nay?

A Modern Day Lamborghini Miura - Yay or Nay?

This Modern Day Lamborghini Miura Looks Great, But We Don’t Think That Lamborghini Will Ever Revive the Name

Ford resurrected the Bronco, Chevy did so with the Blazer, while Acura/Honda wowed us with the new NSX. What if Lamborghini did a similar trickery and revived one of the biggest names in the business - the Miura?

First of all, it would be an enormous surprise because Lamborghini doesn’t do name revivals. Secondly, we do have something remotely similar. If you go right now to the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese in Italy, you can the see Murcielago-based 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept. It looks awesome. But that was almost a decade and a half ago. Today, the revival of the Miura would go a bit differently and we have young Brazilian visual artist Pedro Ruperto to show us how.

The 26-year old envisioned the modern interpretation of the Miura and he garnished it with a few touches currently adorning the exterior of contemporary Lamborghinis.

The Next-Gen Aventador Won't Be Based on the New Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

The Next-Gen Aventador Won’t Be Based on the New Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

At least not design-wise

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.
