Lamborghini’s latest creation, the electric hybrid Asterion, is sure grabbing attention lately.
After the car was unveiled for the first time at the Paris Auto Show last week, the media and car lovers alike have been going crazy for the half petrol half electric super car – the first of it’s kind for the Italian automaker.
Lamborghini’s first electric hybrid is basically the stuff dreams are made of. It’s beautiful, powerful and half electric – nowadays, thats pretty much everything you want form a car. Oh and let’s not forget the fact that the car can produce a combined 910 horsepower. Fancy.
However, the Asterion is just a concept (insert sad face here). Lamborghini has said that there are no plans to actually manufacture the car for the market – making the Asterion even more special as it is a once-off. (more…)
The Paris Motor Show has officially kicked off and this morning saw the unveiling of one of the most anticipated hybrid cars of the show – the all new Lamborghini Asterion hybrid.
This is the Italian automakers first ever hybrid car, so naturally they went al out with it. From design to production, this car truly is a stunner. And we’re not just talking about how it looks.
Although its looks is definitely worth a mention. This car is truly breathtakingly beautiful. In typical Lamborghini design style, the Asterion glistens under the lights on stage at the Paris Motor Show.
The blue colour is also a perfect colour for this car. It’s eye catching and dramatic without being too overbearing. (more…)
Lamborghini is still 10 days away from fully unveiling their ‘track-focused’ Huracan Super Trofeo race car, but they know that fans (like us) are frothing to get a glimpse of the modified Huracan that is set to take the track by storm.
So, to satisfy our hunger for the super fast super car, they have released a short teaser, just over 1 minute long, that shows us the Huracan Super Trofeo (LP 610-4) in some of it’s glory. And while it’s not all of it, it will definitely satisfy our craving until August 15th when the car will be officially unveiled at The Quail in Monterey, California. (more…)
Japan’s underworld is home to many things and many, how should I say, eccentric people. Whether it’s social billionaires, thrill-seeking daredevils or, in this case, flashy yakuza’s (yakuza being an organized crime syndicate).
This gang, operating in Tokyo’s underworld has always had a penchant for fast cars or bikes. However, recently, it seems that the yakuza are having some sort of internal competition as to see who has the most blinged-out car. There preferred mode of transport? Lamborghini’s of course.
The gang was originally some sort of motorcycle gang, but quickly transitioned into more flashy (and more expensive) automobiles. Going from a daring motorcycle club to Lambo-racing criminals will obviously come with new threats and in this case, super flashy style. (more…)
We all know that boys love their toys – and especially 7 year old boys who have just discovered the joy that is a super car. So what do you do, as a parent, to make your Lamborghini obsessed son’s birthday one he will never forget? You organize a fleet of Lambo’s, of course.
This is exactly what one father did for his son’s 7th birthday. Jacob, as described by his father, is one of Lamborghini’s youngest fans. So for his 7th birthday, he’s dad thought he would give it a shot at organizing a ride in a Lamborghini for his son.
The California native contacted the North Los Angeles Lamborghini dealership on Facebook and told them about his son’s biggest dream. Asking if there was any way they could help him out by giving the little guy a ride, the team at Lamborghini North LA did one better. (more…)
We already know that Lamborghini make some seriously sexy cars. Thus, with the unveiling of their latest baby, the Lamborghini Huracan, the Italian car maker has kept the sexiness firmly in place.
Unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show for the first time yesterday, the Huracan (obviously) stole the spotlight from any other car trying to show off at the show. And when you see what it looks like, it’s not surprising in the least.
Lamborghini aims to push the Huracan into the Gallardo’s market. The Gallardo, which is the company’s top selling model, could very well be replaced by the Huracan in terms of sales. (more…)
Here is a little something to brighten up the start of your week.
If you could put your money on either a Lamborghini Aventador, a BMW M6 or a Porsche GT 3 wining a drag race, which one would it be? I know which horse I’d back…
Well, obviously we’re not really at a racing track but we can dream, can’t we? Recently, DragInfo posted a video on their YouTube channel of this exact scenario.
A Lamborghini Aventador, modified to have 730 horsepower taking on a PP performance tuned BMW M6 and, just for good measure, a 1000 horsepower Porsche GT 3 RS joins the party. (more…)
Well would you look at that. To celebrate the Lamborghini Aventador’s 50th Anniversary, German tuner, DMC, took a Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 Anniversario and spiced it up.
Considering there is only 100 of these special anniversary edittions available world wide, it must be of utmost importance to let yours stand out – even if it is standing out in a small crowd.
The special anniversary edition received a very special carbon fibre rear wing from the tuner’s Molto Veloce kit.
The Anniversario boasts an upgraded 6.5 litre, V12 engine, with an added 20 horsepower on tap.
Check out the pics of the impressive, beautifully manufactured Anniversario below:
