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.
The President is a reality show host and the Pope is selling cars. 2018 is weird.
We’ve seen pictures of that crazy Lamborghini Huracan with a giant camera hanging off its nose, but now there’s footage showing exactly why the “Huracam” machine was built in the first place: to chase down supercars.
If it looks like part of that Lamborghini Huracán was on fire at some point, it’s because it was. Luckily, the fire has since been put out and all is (relatively) right again in the world.
“That thing looks like a fighter jet,” “...spaceship,” “...Cigarette boat.” Few people in the presence of a 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster can bring themselves to call it a car. It’s the manifestation of immature and indulgent fantasies. And it is magnificent.
It was unexpected, to say the least, to see a series 1 Lamborghini Espada parked silently on a crowded street in Paris. That is a memory that I’ll never be able to push from my brain, it’s indelibly inked. This giant white vintage Lambo would have been exciting to see parked in a private collection, or even a museum…
Go ahead and toss out all of those early 2000s posters with dramatic speed lines trailing out from behind an overly geometric Gallardo, because Lamborghini has a new race car for teenagers to plaster all over their bedroom walls: the Urus. Yep, Lamborghini wants to race its new $200,000 SUV.
Perhaps the best part of the Lamborghini Huracán is that it’s still powered by a naturally aspirated V10 engine. Once plentiful, naturally aspirated engines have now become a rarity. Will the Huracán’s replacement keep to that idea? Sure, if Lamborghini gets its way.
Last year, Lamborghini broke down and joined most of the automotive world in catering to the public’s unrelenting obsession with large vehicles that’s choking other segments of the car market. It did that by debuting the Urus SUV, which, in the most shocking news ever, apparently has “terrific” sales so far.
It’s no secret Japan’s supercar owners like to do things differently. Whether it’s sticking riveted over-fenders on Porsches or turning or Lamborghinis into LED displays on wheels, these people have no limits. But every now and then you’ll get someone who tops the rest for sheer ridiculousness, and that’s exactly what…
As the sun sets on the Geneva Motor Show press days, I thought I’d take a tour of the show floor and do a different sort of round up. The kind of round up that involves staring (for a bit too long, admittedly) at a bunch of massive wings glued to the back of cars that either don’t exist or I’ll never be able to afford.
We knew it was going to happen, but here it is anyways: the 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder. Yet another version of the good ol’ Huracán, just without a roof and much lighter.
The Lamborghini LM002 is the best Lamborghini ever made, hands down, don’t @ me, bro. The other Lambos are nice, but none are as ready for the impending apocalypse as the good ol’ Rambo Lambo. The LM002 isn’t just a marvel off road, either. Here’s one at a track day with its tamer fellow Lamborghinis.
Last year, the then-unnamed Italdesign Giugiaro Automobili Speciali 200 mph supercar coupe scared everyone at the Geneva Motor Show. Italdesign is bringing it back to this year’s Geneva show, now as a roadster and called the ZeroUno.
A Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera wound up wedged underneath a mobile trailer after a suspected drunken crash in California on Saturday, the Costa Mesa Police Department said on Instagram. Not the nose of the car, or even the front half—the entire car got jammed under the trailer’s few feet of ground clearance.
Today’s GoPro and cell phone clips have exceptional video quality, but the audio always seems to be lacking. So please take a listen to this Lamborghini Diablo GTR take off, shot nearly a decade ago.
