Take a Ride in the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: Video

Take a Ride in the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: Video

It has an old-school V-12 and rear-wheel steering in a perfect blend of old and new

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

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO

It’s the new and improved Huracan

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.

There’s a Bentley Bentayga Speed in the Works and It’s Going to be Lambortastic

The British automaker wants to take on its Italian cousin in a family banter

Volkswagen has done this before as well, and it is doing it again. This time, the automaker is pitting two of its most esteemed marques against each other. Bentley is working on the Bentayga Speed, and it might be just as powerful as the Lamborghini Urus. Won’t this hurt Lamborghini’s sales? Maybe, but if you look at it from the bigger picture, it is the VW group at the end of the day that’s benefiting.

6 Must-Know Facts About the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO

It Is the First Lamborghini That Sees The Future

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.

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo

A mid-cycle facelift with aggressive looks and more power

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.

If You Live in the Right Place, You Can Make the Brabham BT62 Track Car Road Legal!

If You Live in the Right Place, You Can Make the Brabham BT62 Track Car Road Legal!

You Can Have a Road-Legal BT62 If You Live in the Right Place

Brabham Automotive launched its first new car since 1992, the brutally quick BT62 track car, last year and, now, we’re learning more about how the whole ’track car’ thing can be morphed into ’road car’ if you can pony up an additional $190,000 over the $1.4 million price tag that David Brabham’s company asks for these things.

First of all, let’s remind ourselves what the Brabham BT62 is and what it is not. It is a purpose-built track car in the vein of the Pagani Zonda R or the LaFerrrari FXX-K that boasts a 5.4-liter V-8 attached to the chassis right behind the headrests that develops 700 horsepower and 492 pound-feet of torque, all stuffed in a car that weighs just 2,142 pounds. It also is a four-wheeled savage, delivering such a brutal driving experience that you need to go through a training program before you can actually gather track miles on your own. Now, what the Brabham BT62 is not, or wasn’t conceived to be, is a road car.

Brabham, though, listens to its customers and, although plans are in place for a future bonafide road car to be made under the Brabham name, some customers want to be able to take this car, the BT62, to the shops and to and from the race tracks without needing a truck to tow it. That’s why a conversion kit has been designed by Brabham, and it will be available, although there’s a catch if you’re not living in a European country.

Still in production after 11 years, the current R35 GT-R is the fastest and most powerful of its kind. However, it’s not the rarest and definitely not the most valuable. Nissan built quite a few special runs of the Skyline GT-R in the past, but very few of them are as exclusive as the HKS Zero-R.
