Johnny Bohmer is no stranger to making the cars go quick. One of his latest exploits was making a Lamborghini Aventador SV go quick, or 205 mph, which he says is the fastest-ever recorded for the Superveloce.
This looks like a Lamborghini Miura Jota SVR, but it’s not a Lamborghini Miura Jota SVR. It’s not a replica, or a kit car. It wasn’t made with revolutionary and dangerous shrink ray technology. It’s simply the work of a man who grew up dreaming of owning a Miura Jota SVR, but it was always just out of his reach. So he…
A British tourist rented a Lamborghini Huracan in Dubai on July 30, and was shortly thereafter caught by speeding cameras 33 times driving between 78 mph and 143 mph, UAE news site The National reports. The total cost of the resulting tickets and fees: $46,424.
Aside from the warm, dark-colored gunk and the sometimes extensive cleanup afterward, changing your own oil is supposed to be a simple task that saves a bit of money. But with a Lamborghini Huracan, you can throw all of that knowledge—and some cash for routine service—out the window.
We’re pretty lucky to be living in an era when racing is pretty safe, all things considered. We aren’t having Le Mans 1955-style accidents or seeing drivers die on the regular. But no one is infallible, and every so often we have a shocking reminder that we can’t get complacent.
If you are of the opinion that Nürburgring production lap records are Good and Important, then you should know that Lamborghini just set a new one with the yet-to-be-unveiled Aventador SVJ. That lap time was 6:44.97. And it’s made absolutely, 100 percent sure that none of you idiots will dispute the lap this time.
It’s too early for me to predict exactly how Lamborghini’s current crop of cars (the Huracán, Aventador and Urus) will age and look to people in 50 years, but I can tell you this much: Lamborghinis from 50 years ago look freaking amazing.
No matter how much your Lamborghini-daydreaming younger self would try to cast you out like the devil was in the house if you told them, Lamborghini SUVs are already here and hybrids are on the way. It’s true, you tell your younger self, that Lamborghini is rolling with the trends of practicality and more efficiency.
Apropos of nothing, Lamborghini has returned Minardi M191B chassis #003 to vintage racing duties after a lengthy seven-month restoration by the company’s Polo Storico division. Many of the original 1990s Lamborghini and Minardi staff were involved in the restoration. Polo Storico is dedicated to the preservation and…
Police in Los Angeles responded late Sunday to a head-on crash involving a Lamborhini Huracán and a Ford Mustang that, according to the Los Angeles Daily News, left two men injured.
If there’s one thing I learned on my recent trip to Italy, it’s that style matters. Looking good is more important than looking where you’re going. So it’s no wonder the storied art of coachbuilding—creating customized bodies for cars—is still well and truly alive in the nondescript town of Arese, Northern Italy. Here…
Lamborghini reportedly showed about 200 potential customers a prototype of a new hybrid supercar that’s set to debut soon, according to a website called The Supercar Blog. Treat it with skepticism, but Lamborghini’s been talking about production cars going hybrid for a while now. This would get that rolling.
Does your Lamborghini Miura have a wing on the roof? No. It does not. But the Lamborghini Mirua SVR does, now restored by Lamborghini Storico itself to live a full life on track in Japan, where it went from car to legend.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The only thing cooler than old concept cars is old concept cars that get a second life. The Lamborghini Marzal is one of those cars, and it took to the track on May 11-13 for the Monaco Historic Grand Prix for the first time since its sole outing in 1968 at the actual Monaco GP, driven by Prince Rainier and Princess…
There’s a big cryptocurrency conference raking in about $3,000 a ticket in New York City this week (we’re totally going, obviously) and, as prices indicate, there’s a lot of show to go with it. Take the Lamborghinis parked outside of a hotel used by the conference, which Bloomberg reports were rented by a crypto…
Pope Francis got a Lamborghini Huracan last year with a one-off design just for him. But what’s a pope going to do with a Huracan? Floor it down the streets of Vatican City, putting the fear of God in everyone? Of course not. The pope is going to auction it for charity, which he did. It sold for almost $1 million.
When the Lamborghini Gallardo debuted in... 2003? Wait, lemme Google that. Yep, 2003. I remembered that off the top of my head. I have a problem. Anyway, when the Gallardo debuted, everyone criticized it for not being a “real Lamborghini,” small with a V10. But that idea wasn’t as new as people think.
Automakers that cater to the ultra wealthy are all about details. Aston Martin loves talking about its handmade vehicles. Bugatti will send “flying doctors” to tend to cars on a whim. The only word Rolls-Royce knows is “bespoke.” Then there’s Lamborghini, which put the wrong safety labels on its $2 million Centenario.
“How many times can this woman write the word ‘actual’ in a headline?” you ask, annoyed. Well, you would actually have to assure yourself this is an actual situation, too, if you had to blog about someone buying a wall sign—a sign!—of letters and numbers alluding to “Lambo” for the price of an actual Lamborghini.
