Pink Lamborghini Aventador Turns Heads In Tokyo 21

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

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

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.
