The Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor Might Have An Electrified V12!
With a decade on the market and God knows how many special editions and versions, the Lamborghini Aventador will soon be sent into the history books. That, however, won’t happen until Lamborghini comes up with a hybrid powertrain that will allow natural aspiration to live on for the company’s V-12 without conflicting with the ever-stricter emission regulations.

To Hell With Emissions: Lamborghini is Planning Two New V12 Supercars
Just like every other industry, the automotive industry follows certain trends. This means, that for one reason or another, car manufacturers need to adapt to different scenarios. In more recent times, this involves a transition to more efficient powertrains. Even AMG announced that it is moving away from V-8 engines in favor of turbo-fours and hybrid technology. With this in mind, Lamborghini recently announced their future plans involving two new V-12 models.
Amazing Wallpapers: The Lamborghini Urus, Aventador SVJ, and Huracan EVO Celebrate Christmas the Right Way
Christmas is all about being together with your family and friends, right? Well, here comes Lamborghini, showing us that the same applies to… cars. Come to think of it, Sant’Agata Bolognese’s family of models isn’t a big one, but Lamborghini has always been about more quality and less quantity. So to properly celebrate Christmas, Lamborghini set up a lifestyle-y convoy that’s been traveling around Italy to various points of interest, including the CO2-neutral Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters, the sinuous roads of Alto Adige, and Plan de Corones in the Dolomites, at altitudes of 2,275 meters (7,463 feet), and the AlpiNN restaurant run by Michelin three-starred chef Norbert Niederkofler.
The tour’s main stars were none other than Lamborghini’s V8, V-10, and V-12 powered go-fast machines: the Urus, the Huracan EVO, and the Aventador SVJ. What’s the reason to celebrate, you’re asking? Well, other than the holiday season, an unseen-before boost in sales and profitability for the carmaker. Driven by the Urus super-SUV’s popularity, Lamborghini delivered more than 8,000 cars worldwide, a hefty increase compared to the 5,750 units it shipped in 2018.
But, hey, we didn’t bring you here for boring sales reports and whatnot. You’re here to enjoy a fleet of mean performance cars flaunting their shapes and lines in some of Italy’s most stunning landscapes. Oh, yeah, the drivers weren’t afraid to take the cars out for a fun session in the snow; and if that’s not a proper way to look back on 2019 and reflect on what the new year might bring, we don’t know what is. Who knows, maybe the following pictures will inspire you and your mates to finally kick off that winter road trip you’ve been planning. After all, driving a Lambo is hot juicy fun, yet nothing beats a driving get-together between old friends, regardless of what car each of you use on a daily basis.
This Lamborghini Countach is Marlboro Red and Has a Lexus Twin-Turbo V-8
The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most famous out of all of the supercars to have come out of the 20th century. With its Gandini-penned wedge-shape design that became the standard for what a supercar should look like, the Countach really was one of those cars that looked better than they went. As such, Lamborghini tried to make it even more dramatic as the years rolled by but failed miserably at the job. Could this tobacco-liveried replica succeed where Lamborghini failed?
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.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
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.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is one of those cars that arguably needs little to no improvement. It already packs a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 631 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. It can split a 60 mph time in just 2.9 seconds and it peaks at a top speed of 201 mph. Lamborghini set up the Huracan EVO to be a monster, but as we’ve seen over and over again, even the fiercest of monsters have levels that they can go up to. That job doesn’t fall on Lamborghini; that falls on the shoulders of aftermarket tuners like Novitec.
The Italian aftermarket company is known far and wide for its elaborate programs for Italy’s finest exotics. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Prancing Horse or a Raging Bull, Novitec can build tuning programs like nobody’s business. Take this kit for the aforementioned Huracan EVO, for example. It’s not enough that the mighty Lambo is what it is; Novitec wants to make it better, and that’s exactly what it did. From an aerodynamic body kit to a new set of wheels to an engine upgrade program, Novitec’s aftermarket program for the Huracan EVO is as extensive as it gets.
We’re Pretty Sure We Know What “New” Model Lamborghini is Revealing on May 7
Lamborghini’s plant in Sant’Agata has been at idle since March 13, when the COVID-19 outbreak put a temporary end to production. It originally planned to resume operations March 25, but that had to be prolonged, with the company now saying production will restart on May 4th. That announcement came via a general press release that just so happened to hide a little piece of information, one that says Lamborghini is planning to host an online world premiere of a new car on May 7th. The company stopped short of naming that model or disclosing any other information, but we already have a damn good idea of what’s coming.

The supercar brand is the latest automaker to lend a helping hand to the medical frontliners who have had to fight a staggering number of recorded cases in Italy. As of April 1, 2020, Italy has recorded 110,574 cases of those affected by the virus. Of that figure, a total of 13,155 people have died while 16,874 have recovered from the deadly virus.
Wacky Races: Dodge Challenger Hellcat Battles Lambo Urus on the Track
Let’s be honest here. Which of the two would you take for a spin during track day? Is it the beefy Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye or the chunkyLamborghini Urus? Tough call, right? We’re thinking none of them, just to be clear, but MotorTrend here did it anyway.
So, here’s the thing. You’ve got a heavy SUV racing against a heavy muscle car that’s been fitted with bits and bobs from the Demon, a car that’s designed and built to go freakishly fast in a straight line. Hell, what can go wrong?
Lamborghini adds Amazon Alexa to Huracan Evo at CES
The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show just kicked off and Lamborghini came to Las Vegas to show off new tech for the Huracan Evo. On top of releasing an updated rear-wheel drive version to replace the old LP 580-2, Lambo added Amazon Alexa to the supercar’s list of features. This is big news as it’s Alexa’s first venture into the supercar market. Also, Lamborghini programmed the voice assistant directly into the infotainment system rather than adding it as a third-party app.
