Can The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Beat A Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT And A Tuned Nissan GT-R?
When you talk about a supercar taking on a family SUV, you know who would win. But, when the SUV in question is a 640-horsepower Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, things aren’t so obvious anymore. ‘Carwow’ uploaded a video of a Lamborghini Huracan Performante taking on a Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and a surprise star next, which is a tuned Nissan GT-R. Do you think the Lamborghini would’ve made short work of both its rivals?
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Lamborghini Jalpa With These Awesome Pictures
We love celebrating car birthdays and this year is the Lamborghini Jalpa’s 40th anniversary. The car that was once considered the entry-level Lamborghini has now become 40 years old, having been produced between 1981 and 1988. With only 410 units produced, it certainly is rare and prices have started to reflect that. Here’s a brief overview of the 1980s “Baby Lambo”.
This Lamborghini Diablo Replica Evolved Into The Stalker
To say that the Lamborghini Diablo is an iconic car is not an exaggeration, which is why it’s one of the most replicated cars in the world. Diablo replicas are all around and the quality varies greatly, with some being very convincing, while others being complete failures. Depending on how you look at it, the Stalker can be either of those. What started as a Lamborghini Diablo replica took an interesting turn and the end result is…well, see for yourself.
Stunning Recreation of the Lamborghini Countach LP500 Prototype Is Born
Lamborghini has resurrected the Countach LP500 prototype in this recreation based on the original, a car that was first revealed to the press at the 1971 Geneva Motor show. However, during subsequent testing, the supercar was destroyed.
But now, after 25,000 painstaking hours of restoration, Lamborghini has brought back the original LP 500 from the dead to celebrate the iconic car’s 50th anniversary. The car seen here is using the underpinnings of a Aventador LPI 800-4.
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.
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.
The Ares Panther Might Have a DCT, But You Can Still Pretend To Shift Your Own Gears
There are cars out there that truly deserve to have a modern-day successor. Without a doubt, the De Tomaso Pantera is one of those cars. Luckily, the people from Ares Design are of the same mind, which is why they’ve given birth to the Ares Design Panther. Although from every angle, the car looks like a worthy successor to the original, we will be focusing on one of its distinctive features – the gated shifter.
Let Magnus Walker Teach You About the Lamborghini Espada and Ferrari 308 GT4
You don’t need us to tell you who Magnus Walker is, however, you might want to know that he’s part of this gig with Hagerty where he scours the car world in the search for future classics. The YouTube show is called The Next Big Thing with Magnus Walker (obviously) and it’s rapidly turning into one of our all-time favorites.
This Video Will Make You a Lamborghini Miura Expert
Ferruccio Lamborghini established his sports car company in 1963 following a conflict with Enzo Ferrari over the clutch of the 250 GT. Lambo launched its first production model the 350 GT, in 1964, while the upgraded 400 GT followed in 1966. But in 1965, the company’s top engineers began working on a race-inspired vehicle with a mid-engined layout.
The result of this effort debuted in 1966 as the Miura, arguably the most iconic car built by Lamborghini. Although it wasn’t the first road-legal mid-engined car, the Miura was the fastest production vehicle and set the standard for high-performance sports cars and supercars. This new video by ISSIMI pays tribute to the car that changed the world in 1966.
Someone Made a Lamborghini Aventador Out of Cardboard And Gave It Scooter Power
The Lamborghini Aventador starts from around $420,000 and that’s a sticker the average Joe can’t afford. So what can you do if you want one but you don’t have close to half a million bucks to spare? Well, two enthusiasts from Vietnam built one from cardboard and equipped it with a tiny motorcycle engine.
Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV
Lamborghini is known for making some of the world’s most outlandish cars. The Aventador is arguably the last of the old-school greats, a big, heavy supercar with a naturally aspirated V-12 engine positioned behind the seats and its tiny brother, the Huracan, has been a steady seller for years.
But Lamborghini wasn’t always hell-bent on making supercars with its first cars being laid-back grand tourers. It all changed, however, when the Miura arrived. And then, while everyone was still wiping off their drool, Lamborghini struck again with this, the Miura SV.
Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder Hits The Market With Unique Looks
The Lamborghini Huracan is already an emblematic nameplate and the company’s best selling model to date. However, some die-hard fans aren’t exactly happy with its standard four-wheel-drive layout, so Lambo introduced a rear-wheel-drive model in 2016. Come 2020, and the updated Evo model was also launched in RWD trim. The coupe arrived first in January, but the Spyder followed up in May, just in time for the summer. Just like its coupe counterpart, the Spyder RWD is not as powerful as its AWD sibling, but it offers that old-school RWD feeling that some enthusiasts are after in a Lamborghini.
Video: The Lamborghini Hurcan Spyder Sounds like a Fighter Jet When it Passes by at Top Speed
The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is no joke when it comes to open-top performance. The 5.2-liter V-10 under the hood is good for 571 horsepower and 398.8 pound-feet of torque, all of which is shunted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. Even at 3,400 pounds, the Hurcan Spyder can dispatch itself to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 200 mph. Well, that 200-mph mark is questionable as it takes the absolute perfect conditions, but that’s a story for another day.
The point is that someone took a bone stock Lamborghini Huracan Spyder to Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds to see just what it’s capable of. The long, impressively flat runway was once used for space shuttles and gives anyone on four wheels up to 2.7 miles of concrete to go like hell before having to let up. Now, the video you’re about to watch was made to showcase what it looks like to hit max velocity in a Hurcan Spyder, but what caught out attention was at the end of the video when we get a side view of the Hurcan blurring by the camera. Is it just us, or does that sound like a fighter jet doing a flyby? I guess we’ll let you be the judge, so enjoy the video and see just how fast the Huracan can go when you put the pedal down!
A Modern Day Lamborghini Miura - Yay or Nay?
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.
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!
