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!
Lamborghini’s True Christmas Story for 2019 is a Real TearJerker
Back in October 2019, we brought you a story about a father and son that loved the Lamborghini brand and the Aventador so much that they decided to build their own. Long story short, the two worked tirelessly, 3D printing parts, and a little bit of help from a GM-sourced LS1 V-8 engine. Make no mistake, it’s not a Lamborghini Aventador at heart, but for something built in the home garage, it’s a pretty damn good replica.
Well, that was the last we heard about the 3D-printed Aventador replica, but thanks to our reporting (and the reporting of other outlets like ours,) Lambo got word of this replica and decided to do something about it. Fortunately, the brass at Lambo have a heart and gave this father and son duo a Christmas gift they never expected, and the fulfillment of a life-long dream neither thought they would ever see.
One day, the duo walked out to the garage to get to work, only to find that their 3D printed car had been replaced by a real, true-to-life Lamborghini Aventador S. To the best of our knowledge, the father and son don’t get to keep the car, but Lamborghini sure did let them drive it for a few days and that, my friends, is what separates Lamborghini from other exotic car brands like Ferrari. That said, go ahead a click play on the video to see what real-life satisfaction really looks like.! Merry Christmas!
The 3D-Printed Lamborghini Aventador Replica Can Now Get From Point A to Point B
Video: How the Lamborghini Aventador Has Evolved Over the Years
Eight years is a long time for a model in the supercar world, let alone one that bears the badge of Lamborghini. But that’s where the Aventador is at after arriving into the scene in 2011 as the direct replacement to the irrepressible Murcielago. In those eight years, we’ve seen the Aventador evolve in a number of different ways. It’s given birth to special edition models, higher-performance spec versions, and, of course, super-limited creations.
This video prepared by Cars Evolution shows just how far the Aventador has come since its arrival in 2011. Lamborghini doesn’t appear to have any plans of replacing the nameplate anytime soon, so consider this video a touchpoint of how far the Aventador has come and what lies ahead for Lamborghini’s marquee nameplate.
Watch a Lamborghini Huracan Nail 200 MPH in Seven Seconds Flat
I am sorry, but my brain struggles to comprehend what I’ve just seen. This Underground Racing Huracan TT managed to accelerate to 200 mph in seven seconds, change seven gears in that time, and survive to tell the story. Yes, Top Fuel dragsters do it in two-and-something seconds, but this is a Huracan, not some rebuilt-after-one-four-second-run thing.
Published on YouTube, this video is one more that shows the sheer monstrosity of the Underground Racing machines. This Lamborghini Huracan TT features an X3 Version Twin Turbo System with a highly modified engine. All touched up by Underground Racing. This setup, created on the well known 5.2-liter V-10, provides 1,200 horsepower. On regular fuel!
The red Underground Racing Lamborghini Huracan that accomplished this incredible acceleration feat did not run on regular fuel. Its reservoir had race gas in it - a type of gas with an octane value much higher than 100. In this case, the Underground Racing-tuned Lambo engine produced more than 3,000 horsepower. Amazing and scary, to say the least.
Kids Have It Good These Days - They Can Even Learn to Drive in a Lamborghini Aventador
A Lamborghini Aventador is not the kind of car you’d expect to be used as a learner car. But once again, reality has proven to be stranger than fiction because U.K.based driving tutorial company Get Licensed is offering you a chance to learn how to drive an Aventador. No, this isn’t some kind of belated April’s Fool prank or a gimmick meant to draw people into the company’s website where they can book learning sessions with a 1996 Honda Civic. The Lamborghini Aventador learner car is a real thing, and if you want to take Get Licensed up on its offer, you’re going to have to book 10 sessions with the Aventador for a princely sum of £20,000. That’s around $26,140 based on current exchange rates. Would you be interested to pay that much to learn how to drive a Lamborghini Aventador over a period of 10 sessions? Seems like a lot of people are.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Watch the Lamborghini Urus Hit 60 MPH in 2.93 Seconds While Sounding Ridiculously Awesome
It has happened. The Lamborghini Urus accelerated to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. In one of their latest videos, Drag Times reported and clocked a massive Lamborghini Urus accelerating to 60 mph in exactly 2.93 seconds. To show you just how amazing this feat is, you have to know that Lamborghini officially disclosed that the Urus will accelerate to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds. I was aware that Lambo is conservative with its acceleration estimates, but not half a second conservative.
Watch a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Race a MIG-29K Fighter Jet
We’ve seen plenty of supercar battles on airstrips before, but this one’s a bit different from the rest. Posted to Twitter by user @Chopsyturvey, it’s an abbreviated 44-second clip that shows a head-to-head acceleration battle between a Lamborghini Huracan Performante and a MIG-29K fighter jet, combining horsepower and firepower into a single brief video.

New video claims the Lambo Aventador SVJ was designed to have the best handling
Lamborghini has already confirmed that the most hardcore Aventador yet will wear an "SVJ" badge, and it’s releasing new teasers as the public debut is getting closer. Rumored to have set a new record for production cars at the Nurburgring, the Aventador SVJ is now shown racing on the German track with the catchphrase "designed to have the best handling."
Video: Lamborghini Teases Aventador SVJ Run at the Nürburgring
Earlier this month, we reported a rumor that the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota may have reset the lap record for production vehicles at the Nürburgring, besting the Porsche 911 GT2 RS] by 2 ticks with a time of 6 minutes, 45 seconds. Now, it looks as though Lambo is teasing an upcoming announcement with a quick 28-second video clip titled “Aventador SVJ meets the Nürburgring”.
The video doesn’t provide much in way of info, instead giving us quick clips of the upcoming go-faster bull rampaging its way around the infamous German racetrack. However, all indicators seem to point towards something big on the horizon.
For now, the Aventador SVJ has yet to make its official debut, but a new lap record at the Nürburgring is certainly one way to go about it. Once it does make its official entrance, expect the Lambo to come with some rather lofty performance specs, including nearly 800 horsepower courtesy of a mid-mounted 6.5-liter V-12 powerplant. Power is sent to all four wheels, with top speed rated at 217 mph. Sounds like the right stuff for tackling the Green Hell, no?
Do you think this latest Italian monster has what it takes to best ze Germans on their home turf?
Video of the Day: Deciding to Build the Lamborghini LM002 and Lamborghini Urus
Back in the ‘80s, Lamborghini went about building the large-and-in-charge LM002 SUV, an absolute bruiser of a vehicle that was completely at odds with the Raging Bull’s speed-laced history. Affectionately dubbed the “Rambo Lambo,” the LM002 was the off-shoot of the Italian supercar-maker’s “Cheetah” program, which was originally tasked with creating a new off-roader for the military. Only a few hundred were ever produced, but Lambo never forgot about it, and in December of 2017, the manufacturer unveiled a spiritual successor - the Urus.
It’s a fascinating story, and our friends over at Fifth Gear got a chance to sit down and hear it told by Lamborghini’s insiders, including Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO at Automobili Lamborghini, and Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s Head of Design.
Not only does the video include some fascinating perspectives on both the LM002 and the Urus, but it tosses in a number of truly epic shots of both vehicles out and about in their natural environments, plus the all-important exhaust note rumblings from both the LM002’s 12-cylinder and the Urus’ twin-turbo V-8. And, just for fun, there’s some nice side-by-side shots of the LM002 cruising alongside its contemporary sports car sibling, the Countach.
So then, if you want to learn a bit more about the LM002, or perhaps the DNA that makes up the Urus, or you just want to indulge in the glory shots of these menacing Raging Bulls, this 7-minute, 22-second video is for you.
14-Year-Old Gets a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo for His Birthday
So, what kind of presents did you get when you were 14 years old? Based on my recollection, I got a Ralph Lauren cologne, a VHS tape of Braveheart, and a $20 bill. It’s safe to say then that 14-year old Steven Aghakhani received a much better gift for his birthday than what I hauled in back then. The budding race car driver was surprised by his father in his 14th nameday with a Lamborghini. It’s not just any Lamborghini, though. It’s a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, the Italian automaker’s newest eater-of-worlds racer.
Aghakhani took delivery of the car when his father surprised him with a visit to O’Gara Beverly Hills. Unsure of what was going on, the 14-year old got the shock of a lifetime when his dad walked him up to a covered car and lifted the sheets, revealing a car many of us will only own in our dreams and imaginations.
Unfortunately for the birthday celebrant, he won’t be able to take his new Lambo home and drive it to his high school anytime soon. The race car is built specially for track use so if young Steven wants to drive his new pride and joy, he’s going to have to do it on the track or during racing competitions. Still, it’s a good problem to have, don’t you think?
