Late last month, Lamborghini teased its next-generation hypercar with a single image that prominently displayed the shape of the vehicle's daytime running lights. Today, Lamborghini has officially pulled the wraps off the vehicle -- albeit in crispy renders instead of in the fleshmetal. Witness the Sian, which is the latest in a long line of absolutely bonkers road cards from Lamborghini. Believe it or not, the Sian is actually the first production Lamborghini car to be fitted with a hybrid system to augment the internal combustion engine. Given that this is Lamborghini's newest flagship, it shouldn't come as a surprise that powering the vehicle is the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter... Read more...
A new Lamborghini is something that car guys and gals can get excited about. Lambo is teasing a new car with a dark image that shows a silhouette sitting in the dark in front of three beams of light that mimic the lights on the car. It also appears that the Lamborghini emblem glows. That glowing raging bull emblem could be for the teaser shot, but there are rides out there now that have emblems that are lit. Lamborghini fans might recall a concept car that was shown off back in late 2017 called the Terzo Millennio (pictured below) and note that the glowing front lights on the dark Lambo teaser look like the accent lights on the concept car. What Lamborghini said about the concept car back in... Read more...
For lots of car guys and gals, owning a Lamborghini is one of those things you aspire to if you hit the lottery or inherit millions from some long lost relative. Being able to afford a custom one-of-a-kind Lamborghini is something that many Lambo fans never consider, but Lamborghini does occasionally build one-off rides for the well-heeled fans out there. It's latest one-off car is called the SC18 Alston, and it is based on the Aventador platform. This road car was built by Lambo's racing division called Squadra Corse, and it looks fantastic. While this is a road car, Squadra Corse went at the engineering and build of the SC18 to make it as fast as possible around a race track. All the wings,... Read more...
Lamborghini has always been about brash and flashy supercars that are as fast are they are good-looking. Lamborghini is cranking up the dial once again when it comes to hyper-exotics by tuning its Aventador flagship to the max: enter the Aventador SVJ. The SVJ designation stands for Superveloce Jota, which roughly translates into Superfast Performance Superiority. We have no reason to doubt Lamborghini here, as the vehicle is packing the world's most powerful production V12 engine, with an astounding 770 horsepower at 8,500rpm on tap. Likewise, there's 530 lb-ft or torque at the ready at 6,720rpm.  All of that power is enough to rocket the Aventador SVJ -- which has a dry weight of 3,362... Read more...
Anyone with a little brother knows that while you might mercilessly pick on your bro, anyone else who tries it gets a mouthful of fist. Apparently the same goes for Lamborghini. The Aventador SVJ was just sitting back and biding its time to go out and thrash the Porsche 911 GT2 RS after said vehicle put a beatdown on little brother Lambo Huracan Performante at the Nürburgring. Lambo hasn’t always had a reputation for handling and has typically been known more for straight-line speed and outright style. It's changing that reputation with the Huracan Performante first and now the Aventador SVJ. The impressive part about Lamborghini's Aventador SVJ is that it beat the 911 GT2 RS by 2.33...

This isn't the first time that Lamborghini has produced an SUV, and it likely won't be the last. We present to you the Urus crossover SUV. We doubt that you'd mistake it for anything but a Lamborghini with its sharp lines, gaping grilles, big wheels, and low-slung design. The Urus is built on Volkswagen's MLB [Evo] platform, which means that it shares its bones with the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, and all-new Volkswagen Touareg. Of the four, the Lamborghini is no doubt the most brash design -- hands down. The Urus is strictly a four-seater, and given its sharply raked tailgate, we doubt that you'll be lugging much cargo in this crossover. Inside, you'll find a rather traditional -- for a Lamborghini... Read more...
Lamborghini builds some of the most powerful automobiles on the planet, and like several other automakers, the Italian company has plans of releasing an electric vehicle (EV), too. That is the reason why some of Lamborhini's engineers are in Massachusetts—the Italian supercar company is collaborating with two laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on an electric super car concept called "Lamborghini of the Terzo Millennio." "Exactly one year ago we have signed an agreement with the MIT-Italy Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology which marked the start of a collaboration between two outstanding entities for the creation of a project that intends to write...

There is a war raging in the exotic and hyper car manufacturers club to see who can run a car the fastest around the Nurburgring in Germany. The fastest production vehicle around the Green Hell was, until very recently, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante with a lap of 6:52.01. Porsche has taken the lap record back for the home team with a run around The Ring of 6:47.03 crushing the raging bull by nearly five seconds. That doesn't sound like much time, but on a race track five seconds is an eternity, the driver of that Lambo might not have even been able to see the 911 GT2 RS. Porsche had a goal for the 911 GT2 RS of making a lap around The Ring in 7:05 or lower and it crushed that goal by a... Read more...
Late last week, we go an early look at Lamborghini’s latest track monster: the Huracán Perfromante. Lamborghini bragged that the supercar managed to carve its way around Germany’s famed Nürburgring Nordschleife in a record 6 minutes and 52.01 seconds, making it 7 seconds faster than the previous record holder: the hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder. Although we got a glimpse at the Huracán Perfromante on video, it was disguised with camouflage which prevented us to seeing how it truly looks in the metal. Now that the Geneva Auto Show is kicking off, we’re finally getting our first real look at the car and it’s undeniably gorgeous (as you might expect). There’s no way that you would mistake the Huracán... Read more...
I remember as a teenager wanting a Lamborghini Diablo. It was my dream car, an exotic beast that probably would have seen me wrapped around a telephone poll had I come up with the funds back then. These days the Diablo is no longer being produced and if you asked me what my dream car is now, I'd have to strongly consider the Lamborghini Huracán Perfromante. Though it won't be officially revealed until next week. it's already making noise for setting a new production lap record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany. It completed a full lap in just 6 minutes and 52.01 seconds. To make the feat more remarkable, the driver was under pressure to set the record in just one attempt. Due to prior... Read more...
The first production hybrid Lamborghini will be available soon, though do not expect it to be a supercar model in the vein of a Huracán or Aventador. Lamborghini's first hybrid vehicle will be the Urus, an athletic SUV that it first announced in concept form four years ago at the Beijing Motor Show. It will be the only hybrid Lamborghini carries, though it will also carry a non-hybrid model, a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 Urus.It has been a long time since Lamborghini released an SUV. The last one was the LM002, which it produced from 1986 to 1993. Lamborghini's hybrid Urus SUV is likely to be shown off next year at various auto shows before made available to purchase sometime in 2018.Though the Urus... Read more...
When I think of Lamborghinis, I think of flashy automobiles that are as much about making an in-your-face visual statement as they are about clipping apexes and hurtling you and your passenger to near (or surpassing) 200 mph. But Lamborghini isn’t just about fast sports cars (or four-door sedans and crossovers if you can wait a few years) — the company also has lent it name out to notebook computers and PC peripherals over the years. And soon, the Lamborghini name will grace an Android smartphone called the 88 Tauri. The smartphone is being produced by the Tonino Lamborghini Group and will come slathered with copious amounts of leather and metal. Buyers will be able to choose from natural-, black-,...

It’s hard to imagine that the words “supercar” and “fuel-efficient” would go in the same sentence. But those are two words, among others, that are being used to describe Lamborghini’s latest concept car, the Asterion LPI-910 hybrid supercar, which was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show Boasting an 897 horsepower V10 engine, the all wheel drive Asterion can go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds and will hit a top speed of 199 mph. But despite the massive power behind it, the car is able to get 57 miles per gallon while keeping its CO2 emissions to 98 g/km. Image Credit: Lamborghini In order to achieve such impressive fuel efficiency, for a supercar, the... Read more...
Italians make the best food (I won't debate this) and without a doubt some of the sexist cars too, most notably Automobili's Lamborghini line. Sexy often borders on obscene, such as the brand spanking new Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, an open racing prototype boasting an "extreme design" and "breathtaking performance" to celebrate the vehicle maker's 50th anniversary. Under the hood, the Veneno Roadster packs 750 horses nestled inside its 6.5-liter V12 engine. It goes from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (0 to just over 62 miles per hour) in a mere 2.9 seconds. Keep the pedal to the medal and you'll quickly top out at 355 km/h (220 mph). Automobili ported the engine over from its Lamborghini Aventador,... Read more...
