A Drove Of Italian Bulls Parades In Japan To Commemorate The Asian-Pacific Premiere Of The Aventador SVJ
Have you watched The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift? Well, this parade looked exactly like that; the sole difference being that there were only Lamborghinis dominating the roads. Lamborghini recently unveiled the Aventador SVJ in the Asia-Pacific region, and what followed it could make any enthusiast go weak in the knees.
In June 2012, China received a special Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Gold Edition specifically for its region, and now it’s time for Lamborghini to show some love for Japan with its own special Gallardo. Called the Gallardo LP560-4 Bianco Rosso, the model was built to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Lamborghini imports.
The new Gallardo LP560-4 Bianco Rosso features a combination of red and white paint finishes as a tribute to the Japanese flag. The car is painted in white, combined with red insertions on the rear engine hood, side mirrors, and brake calipers. The interior was specially designed in the Lamborghini Design Center and combines a black theme with red leather.
In terms of power source, nothing was changed. The Gallardo LP560-4 still carries a 5.2 liter V10 engine that delivers a total of 552 HP at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 398 lb-ft available at 6,500 rpm.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bianco Rosso will be limited to only 10 units, so if you are from Japan and want one, you better hurry up!
Over in Japan, a new tuning company is breaking into the auto tuning scene and they’ve prepared a nice program for the Lamborghini Gallardo as their very first project.
The tuning company is called BenSopra and they’ve only been open for a few months. Ever mindful of the fierce competition within the industry, the Japanese tuning company wanted their first project to be something people would remember - even if the whole program isn’t so much about over-the-top craziness as it is about subtle styling cues that add an element of sublime exclusivity to the Italian supercar.
The whole aerodynamic program consists of an overhauled front bumper profile, as well as the addition of a new rear diffuser and a new rear wing. These parts, combined with the touches of Italian flair Lambos are known for, makes for a very interesting look to the Gallardo.
Add that to the car’s already mighty powertrain - a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 560 horsepower - and you have a package that certainly does justice to BenSopra’s introduction to the auto aftermarket scene.
Japanese tuning company, Liberty Walk Performance, is a household name in the Japanese tuning scene. With their works finding their way on the Web, these guys are well on their way to being recognized the world over as a pretty bad ass company.
Known for their works on exotic supercars, LWP has come out with a new kit for the Lamborghini Murcielago called the ’LB-R Zero Fighter’. The styling kit features a new paint scheme that was inspired by Zero Fighter planes from World War II. The military theme of the whole LB Performance Type 2 body kit also features camouflage-themed seats on the interior with the calipers given the same treatment. In addition to that, the car also comes with a set of Werfen GT-04 wheels with similar camo pattern barrels.
As far as performance upgrades go, LWP left the supercar’s powertrain untouched, opting to keep the Murcielago’s 6.5-liter V12 engine the same. Can’t say we blame them, considering that on its own, the supercar is already capable of producing 631 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 487 lb/ft at 6000 rpm.
With most programs for the Murcielago, LWP’s project is a unique military take on a modern-day exotic that figures to get much more attention than a stock Murcielago ever could.
Remember that dude that wanted to give his Ferrari its own room inside his house?
Well, depending on your preference, this rich Japanese dude decided that his nine-car garage wasn’t good enough so he asked his architect to install a hydraulic lift so he could have one of them lifted up to his living room whenever he feels like it.
So his designer, Takuya Tsuchida, did just that and much to the delight of the house’s owner, he can now take his sweet Lamborghini and bring it up to his garage.
The things rich people would do to spend their money baffles us to no end. But since they have the wad to justify getting something like this, then it’s not our business to put them to task on how to spend their money.
Then again, we’re just jealous that our living rooms probably wouldn’t be able to fit a car – even if we tried.
