Underground Racing Gives Lambo Aventador SV Roadster Twin Turbos, 1,500 WHP 23

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, tuning, Underground Racing on 12 23rd, 2017


The Lamborghini Aventador SV is, even in Roadster form, quite a beast, but clearly that wasn’t enough for one owner who turned to Underground Racing for more power.

The tuner fitted their twin-turbo system, race-spec short block with billet connecting rods, custom CP race pistons, billet flywheel, axles, differentials and custom clutch, in addition to their own firmware and other mods.

The result is simply breathtaking, as the 6.5-liter V12 now makes 1,250+ horsepower at the wheels on regular gas and 1,500+ whp on race gas, a massive increase from the 749hp produced at the crank by the SV in stock form.

Underground Racing did not reveal any performance stats for their latest project, although it would have been interesting to see how much faster the tuned supercar would be both in the 0-62mph (0-96km/h) sprint (the stock car needs just 2.9sec) and the quarter-mile run.

Seven Impossible Car Mashups That’ll Make Or Break Your Day 17
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW i8, Bugatti Chiron, Chevrolet Camaro, Classics, Dodge Charger, Ferrari LaFerrari, Fiat, Ford GT, Lamborghini Aventador, nissan gt-r, Nissan Juke, Pagani Huayra, Renderings, VW Beetle on 12 17th, 2017


Some car designs just don’t mix, and trying to force them together could make you lose your appetite. You’ve been warned.

First, worry not, because your eyes are not deceiving you. You truly are looking at seven of the most “unholy” car mashups we’ve ever seen. The only thing missing is for these cars to suddenly start speaking Latin and laugh maliciously.

But before we go looking for a priest, let’s run through each of these images, courtesy of Click Mechanic, and at least try to make some sense of what we’re looking at.

Let’s start with the Batmobile wannabe, you know, because at least it looks drivable.

#1 BMW i8 + Dodge Charger

The classic Charger and the modern BMW i8 couldn’t be more different. One is a plug-in hybrid with sporty features and futuristic looks, while the other is a gas guzzling muscle car that will mostly drive sideways if you don’t stay off the throttle.

Put them together and you might get something like this thing, which features a massive V8 with a blower, chrome bits on the wheel arches and a NASCAR-style spoiler at the rear. It’s weird, but at least it looks like it would be fun to drive, right?

#2 Bugatti Chiron + VW Beetle

This one makes sense from a branding standpoint, since VW owns Bugatti. You’ve got the all-new Chiron hypercar in one corner, and the classic VW Beetle in the other.

Make sure to take it all in, from the heavy chrome bumpers and alloys to the Beetle fenders. Overall though, you might as well put Dick Dastardly and Muttley in this car and call it a day, because it’s really wacky.

#3 Pagani Huayra + Chevy Camaro

Here’s another one you might be tempted to at least drive, since it’s comprised of a Pagani Huayra and a classic Chevrolet Camaro. It’s rugged American muscle meets crafty Italian engineering.

It’s got headlights from both vehicles, classic wheels, plus another NASCAR-style spoiler, just like on the i8 Charger. We’re not so sure about its aerodynamic properties though.

#4 Nissan GT-R + Nissan Juke

Another family affair, this time from Japanese automaker Nissan. It actually looks kind of cute, if we’re being honest, but don’t let that stop you from letting us know how much you hate it, if that’s the case.

Besides, if you’re a GT-R fan, the last thing you want is for it to be associated with something like the Juke, an urban-oriented crossover that never even got to break the Internet.

#5 Ford GT + Ford Raptor

If somebody ever managed to actually build this car, the waiting list on it might actually match that of the regular Ford GT. The mashup shows a very aggressive vehicle, one that should have no problem with going off-road, while able to win plenty of straight line races as well.

In a way, it’s the best of both worlds. The only thing missing is room for more passengers and luggage.

#6 Lamborghini Aventador + Lamborghini Tractor

If you want to take Lamborghini back to its early beginnings, you could then try to build something like this Aventador-inspired tractor and it probably wouldn’t be all that hard either.

All you need is the tractor, plus an Aventador front fascia, which doesn’t even have to come from the real car – some people can just make those for themselves. As for this one, it also features a massive winch and a connector for fitting it with a large plow.

#7 Ferrari LaFerrari + Fiat Multipla

This is a really fascinating combination, in the sense that on one hand you’ve got arguably the most beautiful car ever built in the LaFerrari, and then you’ve got one that many consider the ugliest car ever, in the Fiat Multipla. We can call this either the LaFiat or the LaMultipla, you decide.

The contrast between the two speaks volumes, and in a weird way, they kind of match, since they’re both Italian…but let’s not kid ourselves. Consider the hypercar properly insulted.

Watch Richard Hammond Smoke Aventador And NSX With The Rimac 11

If you haven’t had a chance to watch the first episode of The Grand Tour’s second season, stop what you’re doing and check it out immediately.

If you have seen it, the video below showcases one of the most memorable segments from the trio’s Swiss road trip in the Rimac Concept_One, Lamborghini Aventador S, and Honda NSX, showing just how quick the Croatian electric hypercar is.

Filmed before Richard Hammond’s unfortunate crash onboard the Rimac, the drag race took place at an airfield in Switzerland and marks a return to form for the three ex-Top Gear hosts.

To be fair to the Aventador and NSX, the Rimac is in a totally-different performance class, so it’s no surprise that it wiped the floor with the two supercars. In fact, the Concept_One used in the film delivers 1,224 hp thanks to four electric motors and a 90 kWh battery pack. This allows it to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h).

Driving Lambos On Snow Is The Most Fun You Can Have With Your Pants On 9
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, video on 12 9th, 2017


The Lamborghini Accademia program provides participants with the opportunity to drive the Italian brand’s very best vehicles in a number of different conditions, including on snow.

As you can imagine, driving a 600 hp+ all-wheel drive supercar on snow isn’t exactly easy, as many participants in the video below recently discovered.

The clip shows a host of Huracan and Aventador S models sliding around a specially-built racetrack covered in snow.

On tarmac, Lamborghini’s all-wheel drive supercars aren’t the most tail-happy vehicles on the planet. However, on snow, and with an experienced driver behind the wheel, they can expertly slide around corners.

Moreover, unlike a racetrack, the punishment for getting things wrong isn’t slamming into a concrete or steel barrier, but instead soft walls made from snow.

So, does driving get much more enjoyable than this? We don’t think so…

The Grand Tour’s Opening Episode To Feature Hammond’s Rimac Crash 7
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Honda / Acura NSX, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, Rimac, The Grand Tour on 12 7th, 2017


Details of the first episode of The Grand Tour’s second season have been announced and it’s the one we’ve all been waiting to see.

Dubbed Past, Present or Future, the episode will see Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May driving the Lamborghini Aventador S, Rimac Concept_One, and Lamborghini Aventador S through the stunning roads of Switzerland.

As we all know, Richard Hammond was badly injured during the filming of this episode after crashing the Concept_One at a hillclimb event. The episode will include footage of the incident but it could be limited as the onboard cameras were destroyed in the crash and ensuing fire.

The episode will also debut the new Celebrity Face Off segment. It will see former The Voice UK judge Ricky Wilson going up against David Hasselhoff.

The episode will drop on November 8 on Amazon Prime.

Chrome-Wrapped Lamborghini Aventador Puts On A Flamethrower Show 25
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Drag-Racing, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Videos, Offbeat News, tuning, video on 11 25th, 2017


The ‘hot ride‘ term has a very literal meaning for the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Filmed recently during what appears to be a drag racing event, the Aventador proved its flame-spitting capabilities that are enhanced by an aftermarket Capristo exhaust system.

This Aventador supercar doesn’t only have a deeper exhaust note, as it also wears a silver and gold wrap alongside dark elements on the roof, mirror caps and wheels. Apart from the exhaust, we don’t know if it has any other modifications, but even in stock form the Aventador is no slouch thanks to its 700PS (690hp) and 690Nm (609lb-ft) of torque.

The fire show, which happily ended without the Lambo’s rear end being lit as we have seen it happen in other occassions, was preceded by a few acceleration bursts and culminated with a quarter-mile race in the company of a previous-gen Porsche 911 Turbo S.

Its German challenger proved to be faster on the drag strip than the Italian exotic machine, but to the latter’s excuse, the Porsche had a better start as its driver pushed the throttle all the way down just as the light turned green, while the Aventador stayed still for a few tenths of a second.

Pink Lamborghini Aventador Turns Heads In Tokyo 21
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Forgiato, japan, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador on 11 21st, 2017


We’re not quite sure what to make of it, but there seems to be a proliferation of pink Aventadors lately, as we’ve seen quite a few of them in the past few months alone.

Now, here’s another example painted in the same color: an LP720-4 50th Anniversary model, its output bridging the gap between the base LP700-4 and the LP750-4 SuperVeloce (or the revised LP740-4 S). It’s also riding on a set of Forgiato‘s S202 wheels, with black rims and pink spokes and hubs to match the lipstick paintjob.

This example was spotted in Tokyo. Japan is one of the largest markets for high-end automobiles in the world, and Lamborghini even made a special version for it.

That limited edition Raging Bull didn’t come in pink, though – which we believe is a good thing. But variety, they say, is the spice of life. And while it may not be to everyone’s taste, a pink Lambo is certainly spicy.

Aventador-Based Kode 0 Stops By Jay Leno’s Garage 14
Nov
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Jay Leno, Ken Okuyama, Lamborghini Aventador, video on 11 14th, 2017


Ken Okuyama’s latest creation, called the Kode 0, might look like something out of a sci-fi film but it’s actually a proper, road-legal supercar specifically made for a customer.

Okuyama took inspiration from the supercars of the past, trying to create a clean wedge-shaped supercar like the original Lamborghini Countach.

The Kode 0 is based on the Lamborghini Aventador but the bodywork employs some really clever ideas that completely change the proportions of the donor vehicle and making it truly unique.

The powertrain however remains completely stock, meaning a 6.5-liter V12 with 700PS and 690Nm of torque, mated to a single-clutch gearbox. Given the lighter bodywork, the Kode 0 should be quicker than a standard Aventador but hard figures was never the point of this creation.

Ken Okuyama brings the very impressive Kode 0 to Jay Leno’s Garage, giving us some really juicy details.

Out Of This World Verde Mantis Lamborghini Aventador SV Could Be Yours 10
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Galleries, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, used cars on 11 10th, 2017


An eye-catching 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster has surfaced for sale in Florida from Fort Lauderdale Collection South.

Only 600 examples of the Aventador SV Roadster were produced but thanks to the Verde Mantis paint color of this one, it is certainly one of the rarest in existence and may even be the only one of its kind in the world.

Like pretty much every other Aventador SV, the paint color is contrasted by a plethora of carbon fiber elements, some with a gloss finish and others with a matte finish. Huge SV decals are also found on the car’s rear quarter panels.

Fittingly, the original owner had the interior trimmed to beautifully match the exterior with bright green stitching, piping, and accents throughout. The available Sensonum premium audio system is also present.

Unlike most of its rivals, the Lamborghini Aventador is made for people that like to cause a scene and if a wealthy enthusiast wants to do just that, we can’t imagine an Aventador being better at stopping traffic than this one.

Lamborghini Aventador Burns Rubber And Makes Sweet Music On Closed Airfield 4

Supercar owners often forget that their powerful machines, as limited and expensive as they may be, are built to have fun in.

However, every once in a while, some of them remember the purpose of their rides, and treat bystanders to some rubber-burning and high-revving experiences, like this Lamborghini Aventador driver.

Shot on a closed airfield, likely during a supercar gathering or local automotive event, the short clip reveals the Italian bull going sideways, to the delight of the spectators.

Before putting an end to the ad-hoc show, the man pulled over and abused the throttle for a few seconds, reminding us (if we ever needed that) that the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that powers the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the best sounding in its class.

Bringing the engine into discussion means, it has 700PS (690hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque in the pre-facelifted version that lacks the ‘S’ suffix, and 40PS (39hp) more in the latter, working together to propel it from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.9sec.

New Lamborghini Concept Teased, Could Preview The Aventador Successor 3
Nov
Posted by Michael Gauthier in concept, featured, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Concepts, Reports on 11 3rd, 2017


Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman has posted a teaser image of a mysterious Lamborghini concept on Instagram.

Set to be unveiled on November 6th at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the model is expected to preview the styling direction of the Aventador successor. The car is currently being overseen by Mitja Borkner who is the head of Lamborghini design and has previously worked on a handful Porsche models including the Mission E and Panamera Sport Turismo.

The teaser image doesn’t reveal much but we can see the concept will be extremely low to the ground and feature an aggressive front fascia. The model also has slender headlights and what appears to be LED daytime running lights.

Little is known about the concept at this point but Lamborghini teamed up with MIT to “write an important page in the future of super sports cars for the third millennium.” The partnership is primarily focused on creating new materials for the automotive sector and had the goal of developing a “super sports car ready for the challenges of the third millennium.”

Interestingly, Lieberman hinted the concept doesn’t have an engine and isn’t powered by batteries. That leaves plenty of questions but we’ll find out more next week.

2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Drag Races Aventador SV In Forza 7 3
Nov
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Drag-Racing, Forza, Games, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, porsche, Porsche 911 GT2, Porsche-911, video on 11 3rd, 2017


With the new 911 GT2 RS being one of the most eagerly anticipated cars out there, we’ll take any chance we can get at witnessing what it can do against a track-bred rival.

While performance-related results in Forza will always vary compared to the real world, this latest installment of the gaming franchise still has a lot to offer, especially to petrolheads itching to find out just what the GT2 RS is capable of.

Before we dive into the numbers, we should remind everybody that a straight-line drag race isn’t what these two supercars were built for. Still, with over 700 horses on each side, getting up to speed is a breeze.

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the most powerful road-legal 911 ever. Its twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six is good for 700 PS (690 HP), allowing for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of just 2.8 seconds, the exact same as the more powerful 750 PS (740 HP) Aventador SV.

During this high-speed drag race courtesy of the Ericship111 YouTube channel, we see both cars crossing the line at roughly 200 mph (321 km/h). Care to guess who won? There were only 0.65 seconds between them.

Lamborghini Aventador 50th Anniversario Makes The SV Seem Common 3
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Galleries, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, used cars on 11 3rd, 2017


Feast your eyes on a stunning 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario, a car so rare that it makes the Aventador SV seem like a mass-produced supercar.

Unveiled in 2013 as part of Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary celebrations, just 100 units of the hardtop special edition were built, alongside a further 100 Roadsters. By comparison, there are 1100 Aventador SV and Aventador SV Roadsters in existence.

Currently up for sale from Lamborghini Dallas, this particular Aventador 60th Anniversario has reportedly covered just 460 miles. It is also equipped with a range of options, including navigation, reversing camera, the carbon fiber interior package, yellow brake calipers and navigation.

As with most of the 50th Anniversario models built, this one is painted in Giallo Maggio and features black wheels. Inside, it includes Giallo Quercus inserts alongside black leather.

At the time of writing, the car had an asking price of $439,999, slightly less than a 2018 Aventador S from the same dealer. Is it worth it? We’ll let you be the judge.
