Watch a Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Covered in 2 Million Swarovski Crystals Cause Chaos in London
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce is an incredible machine, meticulously built to dispense speed at every opportunity thanks to a plethora of carbon fiber weight-saving measures, advanced aerodynamics, and a fire-breathing 6.5-liter V-12 engine. However, all that won’t stop someone with too much time, too much money, and not enough taste from utterly ruining it, as evidenced by this particular example covered in 2 million Swarovski crystals.
2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo
The Lamborghini Huracan Evo is the mid-cycle facelift of the company’s entry-level supercar. Although it’s described as a new-generation model, it’s exactly what the name says, an evolution of the nameplate. It was introduced in early 2019, almost five years after the Huracan went into production.
Design-wise, the Evo is based on the higher performance Huracan Performante. It features more aggressive front and rear ends, as well as a bespoke set of wheels. Inside the cabin, there’s an infotainment system with a big touchscreen, while motivation comes from the beefed-up engine from the Performante. While it won’t set a new Nurburgring record, the Evo is notably quicker than its predecessor. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
Someone Just Wrapped a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Around a Tree
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is a Huracan dialed up to 11. It’s lighter, more powerful, and more nimble than the standard model but all the extra performance doesn’t blend well with an over-enthusiastic driver. This particular fellow wanted to show-off the launch control feature on his Huracan Performante but, instead, managed to prove how safe the Huracan is after crashing side-on into a tree and a wall.
Reporting on yet another crash involving a supercar may seem a bit daft especially since they seem to happen with an awkward regularity. Once every two or three weeks we hear about someone who overstepped it on the public roads and ends up with a bent exotic car. It barely ever happens during a track day, but you can decide if that means anything or not. This time, however, we’ve got another Huracan Performante that’s in the gutter after its owner banged it up pretty severely while attempting to leave a car meet in London as if he knew what he was doing. It’s safe to assume he didn’t quite know what he was doing.
Is Lamborghini Planning To Resuscitate The Iconic 1986 LM002?
The Italian automaker, known for creating raging bulls that have been every child’s dream at some point in life, is actually known for much more than just the super fast hypercars it is known for lately. Speak to the Generation X folks, and they will reminisce Lamborghini as a company that once used to build a hardcore truck that made them go weak in the knees. Fast forward to 2019, and the company is actually considering the prospect of building an SUV that falls in line with the iconic LM002. Time to pop that bottle of 1986 Disaronno again!
Lamborghini Won’t Offer the Aventador or Huracan With a Manual Transmission Because It’s Too Expensive
Regardless of your take on manual transmissions, you can’t deny the added layer of involvement they provide to the driving experience. This is why it’s sad that modern supercar makers have all but ruled out the usage of such old-school transmissions for the sake of both costs and performance. Lamborghini is one of them although they were close to offering one on some special edition Huracan and Aventador models.
You and I both know that a robotized automatic transmission with one or multiple clutches is quicker at shifting through gears than any biped creature we commonly refer to as a human. In spite of this, you and I both would like to be able to do things our way, at our own pace. Of course, that’s what flappy paddle gearboxes are for, but there’s nothing quite like the added difficulty of a third pedal and a stick between the seats. Lamborghini has been telling us for years that the manual is dead - at least as far as it’s concerned - but the Italians prove they are genuine petrolheads because, in the meantime, they did at least look into it to make sure once again that the initial assessment was right. Props to Sant’Agata for that!
2019 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder
The Lamborghini Huracán was introduced in 2014 as the Italian supercar maker’s next-gen entry-level model, following in the footsteps of the ever-popular Lamborghini Gallardo. In January of 2019, Lamborghini revealed the second-generation Huracán EVO Coupé, and now the Raging Bull is dropping the top with the Huracán EVO Spyder at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Slotting in as the second entry in Lambo’s modern V-10 stable, the Huracán EVO Spyder is equipped with the same go-stuff as the hardtop, including a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter powerplant, adaptive suspension components, and eye-popping aerodynamics. However, as an added bonus, the Huracán EVO Spyder adds in unlimited headroom, all without compromising the Huracán EVO’s impressive performance capabilities.

2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most extreme iteration of the company’s range-topping supercar. The SVJ combines the complex aerodynamic systems first introduced on the Huracan Performante with the "Jota" badge, first used on the Miura and then revived for the Diablo. A Roadster version of the SVJ will follow in 2019.
Lambo has yet to confirm that a drop-top version of SVJ is underway, but has already sent a certification request to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for such a model. The SVJ Roadster is one of four cars certified by CARB for the 2019 model year. This also means that the drop-top is only a few months away and will likely to break cover in early 2019. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table from the review below.

Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder Spices Up Lambo’s Open-Top Onslaught At Geneva
The Geneva Auto Show with its early Spring date is the ideal place for automakers to showcase the cars that will be on everyone’s lips this summer. Case in point: Lamborghini. The supercar maker from Sant’Agata Bolognese brings to the Swiss show not one but two offerings that are bound to mess up your hair and make you hard of hearing for a few days: the Aventador SVJ Roadster and this one, the Huracan Evo Spyder.
Lamborghini is no longer a company satisfied with making cars that are fast in a straight line but that will, otherwise, try to endanger your health. Ever since Ferrari started putting out flawless car after flawless car, Lambo’s been upping its game significantly too. Last year, the floor of the Geneva Auto Show was graced by the Huracan Performante Spyder and the Evo is simply a Performante that decided to double down on its dose of steroids. It also shares the Performante’s restyled face with some tweaks.
The 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is Just a Hair Heavier and A Hair Slower than the SVJ Coupe
The awesome Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, the successor to the iconic Diablo Jota and Miura SVJ, joined the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in Roadster trim. The fastest Lamborghini around the Nurburgring is now available without a roof with similar performance, infinite headroom, and a louder engine soundtrack.
The 2019 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder Drops Its Top Before Geneva
Lamborghini has revealed the soft top version of last year’s Huracan Evo coupe, the 2019 Huracan Evo Spyder. It is exactly the same car, but with the extra weight of its folding roof, its acceleration is slightly affected - but what you gain on the other hand is limitless headroom and a better earful of its glorious naturally aspirated V-10 engine.
Lamborghini’s First Hybrid will Debut in Frankfurt as - You Guessed It - a Special Edition Model
The wait for Lamborghini’s first hybrid supercar will come to an end at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. The yet-to-be-named hybrid monster is a touchpoint for the Italian automaker as it lays the foundation for its own hybrid plans for the future. For now, the hybrid supercar goes by the name “LB48H.” Details are still scarce at this point, but Lamborghini is expected to take styling cues from the Terzo Millenio EV Concept it unveiled last year and graft them onto the hybrid supercar. This model also holds the distinction for being the rarest among all hybrid exotics that have been released in recent years. Lamborghini’s building only 63 units — the 63-car volume is a nod to 1963, the year Lamborghini was born — and, unfortunately for all of us, all 63 units are already accounted for.
There’s a Reason Why The 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO is Missing The "LP610-4" Name
If Lamborghini didn’t stray from its traditional naming strategy, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo would technically carry the name Huracan Evo LP610-4. But, Lamborghini decided to drop the Huracan Evo’s alphanumeric name, in part because the automaker wanted to make it easier for its consumers to understand the model’s identity. Purists may cringe at the thought of not seeing the LP610-4 designation on the Huracan Evo, but from Lamborghini’s perspective, it’s easier to sell the Huracan Evo without the alphanumeric designation that a lot of consumers find confusing. Lamborghini refused to say if it’s going to stick with this new naming strategy, but while it is easier to market the Huracan Evo without the LP610-4 in the name, it’s still going to take some getting used to, especially from those who have developed an affinity for Lamborghini’s alphanumeric names.
The Islero was the first Lamborghini with hidden pop-up headlights and the first designed by Mario Marazzi. Its appearance seemed somewhat dull even next to the Espada, not to mention the Miura. The 400 GT version was quickly followed by the improved 400 GTS that soldiered on until 1970 when the Islero was replaced by the Jarama.
Lamborghini was truly prolific in its first few years as an automaker. Ferruccio Lamborghini’s men put the 350 GT into production in 1964 and then, only two years later, the bigger, more powerful 400 GT arrived. At the same time, the stunning Gandini-penned Miura dropped and, for 1968, Lamborghini readied up two new cars: the Islero which replaced the 400 GT and an even bigger grand tourer, the Espada. Lamborghini’s wave didn’t last much longer, though, and, by the mid-’70s, the company was in financial hot water.
The Islero name comes from a Miura-breed bull that killed the famous matador Manuel Rodriquez in August of 1947.
1976 - 1979 Lamborghini Silhouette
Lamborghini launched the Silhouette in 1976 as an attempt to appease customers that didn’t buy the Urraco, the company’s first V-8 model, with a car that featured the same underpinnings but a more modern styling in tune with the Countach. Sadly for Lamborghini, it didn’t work out, but Lamborghini still had the Jalpa up its sleeve.
The Silhouette was a more angular-looking sports car, in tone with the Countach. It had square, flared wheel arches, an aggressive nose, and a sleek rear section with two black air vents covering the area aft of the B-pillar. The wheels were also new and they would go on to become a sort of a staple on Lamborghini models. The Silhouette was also one of the few to not be named after a fighting bull or a breed of bulls and the first from Sant’Agata Bolognese to feature a removable targa top.
The Silhouette, in keeping with the budget sportscar ethos pushed forward by Ferruccio when conceiving the Urraco, was never meant to be an out-and-out performer. As such, with a 3.0-liter V-8 behind the seats, the power output was advertised at a docile 266 horsepower - 40 less than a modern-day Seat Leon Cupra R hot hatch- with a resulting top speed of 162 mph or 12 mph less than a de-restricted Audi RS3 hot hatch that you can buy in 2018.
Lamborghini Still Thinks People Will Take the 2019 Urus Off-Road and Made a Video to Prove It
Just about every SUV and crossover out there right now offers at least a semblance of off-road worthiness, and the latest from Sant’Agata Bolognese is no different. As such, Lamborghini is underlining this claim to rough-stuff performance with a new 1-minute video featuring the Urus tearing up some terra.
Take a Ride in the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: Video
Lamborghini is no more about show over go and the new Aventador SVJ is a prime example of that. Yes, it looks bonkers, as it should, but it also drives great and goes stunningly fast on track, something that’s not exactly a characteristic of classic Lamborghinis.
The folks over at Lamborghini glanced at the Aventador SV with its protruding front splitter, big nostrils, and sizeable rear wing and thought that it’s quite tame, actually, and that they could do better. Late last year, the company thus unveiled the SVJ where J, obviously, comes from Jota which is only attached to those Lamborghinis that have successfully broken out of a mental institution.
Below, you can watch it go around the newly-repaved Estoril circuit in Portugal. The surface is quite slippery due to the lack of racing that has occurred since the repaving, so there’s not much rubber to hold you stuck to the racing line, in spite of the mechanical grip provided by the new Pirelli rubber.
Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO may represent the Huracan’s mid-cycle refresh, but it really makes the gap between entry-level and performante a little bit smaller. It has the more aggressive look in the front and rear, and it’s even quicker than ever before. Outside of being a little more aerodynamic, the Huracan now delivers 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet from its 5.2-liter V-10 – enough for a 3.9-seconds sprint to 62 mph a 9.0-second sprint to 124 mph, and the same top speed of 202 mph. Either way, we’re a little bonkers over the EVO, so we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day.
Lamborghini Launches The Configurator For The 2019 Huracan Evo
First the teasers, then the reveal, and now this – Lamborghini is making sure our New Year celebrations do not end. The new Huracan, now known as the Huracan Evo, did not just receive cosmetic upgrades; it came with more power and better mechanicals as well. However, if somehow the Huracan Evo did not float your boat, the company made sure you don’t leave disappointed. Lamborghini has put a new configurator on its website, and the choices have left us drooling.
6 Must-Know Facts About the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO
The new Lamborghini Huracan Evo is properly angry. Just look at it. Lambo managed to widen it visually with those cool front aero blades and a razor-sharp splitter. This is a subtle change compared to what we have seen before. A good change at that. On the other side, we can see centrally mounted exhausts and aero parts arrangements that are really similar to what we have seen on Lambo race cars.
Although the Lamborghini Huracan Evo is basically a facelifted Huracan, the changes Lambo did to it compared to the first Huracan are rather comprehensive. I compiled a list of important facts about the new Lamborghini Huracan Evo that you need to know about.
Lamborghini Throws Down its Highest Trump Card with the 2019 Huracan EVO
This 2019 ’Lanborghini’ Urus Needs A Dictionary
Imagine how frustrating it would be to six-digits on a “Lamborghini” and wind up getting something with Chinese-knockoff Quality? how does a “Lanborghini” sounds? Although it sounds like a silly typo, this is not expected after splurging close to $230,000. The owner of this Lamborghini Urus claims that his brand-new car is plagued with electronic word-botches. And, to top things off, everything got worse after a software update.
A Japanese-Rooted Automobile College Has Combined Lamborghini and Toyota DNA to Create the Urus 86 Pickup for the Tokyo Auto Salon
We’ve been dreaming about a pickup truck version of the Lamborghini Urus ever since the luxury SUV broke cover, but we’re pretty sure the Italians won’t make one. Fortunately, the folks over at Nihon Automobile College in Japan created one for the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. There’s a catch though, - it’s not exactly a Urus.
Lamborghini Urus measured against classic LM002
Lamborghini’s Urus isn’t the first high-riding SUV vehicle the company has ever made. Despite the awesomeness of the Urus, we can’t forget that Lamborghini manufactured the imposing LM002 between 1986 and 1991. Only 328 LM002s were ever made and, while it wasn’t excessively practical or useful, its front-mounted V-12 engine borrowed from the Countach, plus the military-style squared off design helped win some fans.
