Owning A Lamborghini Huracan Is Not That Expensive – Or Is It? 5

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, Offbeat News, video on 01 5th, 2018


There are many petrolheads out there who might be able to stretch to a supercar, especially a used one, but refrain from doing so due to the maintenance and insurance costs this would entail.

However, the costs aren’t that scary when it comes to a Lamborghini Huracan – or at least that’s what a YouTuber who owns one claims.

Bought in 2016 with just 1,000 miles (1,609km) on the odo, the Italian supercar now has 23,000 miles (37,015km). During this time, it went through a few oil changes, which cost anywhere between $500 and $1,500 each depending on where they’re done, so taking it to a mechanic rather than an authorized dealer is more economical, and, as he says, you’d still keep your warranty.

Driving the Huracan on a daily basis, combined with the occasional track days and having fun on twisty roads will eat those tires quite fast, so how much does a new set cost? Well, that’ll be $1,700 then, which, for their size, is actually quite reasonable.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing, though, as the Huracan had an issue with the right front brake pad. This turned out to be quite expensive, as the carbon ceramic disc had to be changed, and it burned a $6,000 hole in his pocket. Moreover, since it was in the shop, it also got an oil change, fluid flush and its brake pads changed on all four corners. Thus, in the end, he was faced with a $9,000 bill; and that’s kinda scary…

So, how much did the owner of this Huracan had to pay after owning the car for a year and a half? Well, you can find out the answer by watching the video that follows.

The Lamborghini Forsennato Would Be A Proper Raging Bull…If It Was Real 5

By drawing up the Terzo Millennio concept, Lamborghini proved that no design is too busy, or overly aggressive, for them to consider.

If you like that sort of thing, then we will gladly introduce you to the Forsennato, which is Italian for “Lunatic” and/or “Madman”. The name definitely fits the concept’s description.

The rendering was penned by designer Dmitry Lazarev, who seemingly took as many design cues as possible from past and current Lamborghinis, putting together a car worthy of the Italian company’s badge.

Visually, the headlights look completely unlike anything we’ve ever seen on a Lambo, although the Y-shaped surfaces endure and can be found embedded in the front fascia, on the sides and at the rear, more specifically at the taillight graphics. Since we mentioned the rear end, it reminds us a little bit of the Lykan Hypersport, although it’s a lot sleeker and seems wider.

Bedazzled Huracan Looks Like The Bull That Busted The China Shop 3

With the Huracan, Lamborghini may have toned down its typically outrageous styling – but it’s still one of the most eye-catching cars on the road.

Apparently that wasn’t enough, however, for the owner of this one. Spotted on the streets of London, this hot pink Lambo has been covered in Swarovski crystals – 1.3 million of them, we’re told.

What’s more is that this isn’t the first time the owner has had this done. The supercar belongs to one Daria Radionova, a 25-year-old Moldovan fashion designer and bling enthusiast living in the UK.

She previously had similar treatments applied to her Mercedes CLS and Bentley Continental GT by the same crystal specialists at Vinceri. Judging by the licence plate BAII BYY seen on all three, we’d say she probably traded one in for the other. But who knows, she could have a blindingly bedazzled garage somewhere with more crystal than Buckingham Palace.

Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 Gets Supercharged To Produce 492 WHP 29

Posted by Michael Gauthier in Film, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, tuning, video on 12 29th, 2017


The Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 is an impressive machine as it boasts a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 580 PS (426 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the rear-wheel drive coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph).

While that’s nothing to sneeze at, Nitto Tire and professional stunt driver Samuel Hubinette teamed up to create a drag racing variant which features a Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger.

The car was modified by VF Engineering and in its standard configuration the model produced 492.37 WHP. After installing the supercharger and an assortment of other components, the car developed 685.76 WHP which is an increase of 193.39 WHP.

Of course, something this powerful begs to be raced and that’s exactly what Hubinette does. While you’d expect the model to race a traditional supercar, Hubinette pits it against an Unlimited Class Ultra4 off-road racer driven by Jason Blanton. The model has approximately 900 hp (671 kW) which is enough to give it a commanding head start. However, the Lamborghini eventually catches up and manages to beat the off-roader racer across the finish line by 0.3 seconds.

Lamborghini Centenario Is One Heck Of A Way To Celebrate Christmas 27

London has more than its fair share of supercars, but most, if not all, were eclipsed over the past weekend by a Lamborghini Centenario.

Shipped to England’s capital for the Lamborghini Christmas party, the extremely rare Centenario was parked outside a nightclub, where it caused quite a stir.

Built in just 40 examples (20 coupes and 20 roadsters) to commemorate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, the Centenario was sold out even before the Italian automaker pulled the cover off its body last year, in the Geneva Auto Show, despite its eye-watering €1.75 million ($2,075,000) price tag.

The limited edition Lambo is based on the same platform as the Aventador and shares its 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12, which has been tuned to 770PS (760hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque. Thus, it needs just 2.8sec for the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint, and can reach a top speed in excess of 350km/h (217mph).

More impressively, the manufacturer claims that bringing the Centenario to a complete stop from 100km/h (62mph) takes just 30 meters (98.4ft).

Potential customers that missed their chance to buy a Centenario straight from the factory can still buy one if they’re willing to pay a premium, as various examples continue to end up on the “used” exotic car market. The last one we saw is still up for grabs at $3,475,000 and has only 47 miles (76km) on the odo…

2000 HP Lamborghini Huracan Spins At 200 MPH During Drag Race 24

A recent Texas Invitational event attracted lots of tuned, high-powered supercars that raced each other on the quarter mile, and apparently there was almost everything you can think of, from Audi R8s and Nissan GT-Rs to Corvettes and Porsches. However, two Lamborghinis hit trouble, spinning out of control, one of them at a really high speed.

As a matter of fact, the video shows quite a number of drag races – and, as is happens in these events, in some cases things went wrong, with some cars experiencing engine issues and others failing to brake in time.

And then, of course, there are the two Lamborghinis we’ve already mentioned. First in line is the black Gallardo, which spins out shortly after setting off on its run. Thankfully, there was a lot of run-off area and it eventually came at a stop to the gravel, without anyone getting hurt.

As for the white Huracan, which allegedly was tuned to 2,000hp, it spun while racing against a Nissan GT-R. You can see the incident from afar, as well as from the GT-R perspective via its roof-mounted camera.

Unlike the Gallardo, the Huracan spun out right after it crossed the finish line, and according to the video description, it did so at a whooping 200 mph (320 km/h)! Naturally, since it was travelling at that speed, it took a while until it came to a halt, but, once again, thanks to the big runoff area, we trust the driver has walked away unharmed.

Chris Harris Takes On The New Lamborghini Huracan Performante 23

It took a while before Top Gear’s Chris Harris got his hands on the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante, but the review is finally here.

Thus, the following video shows the automotive journalist and TV host drive the Italian supercar really fast on the Knockhill track.

Lamborghini have really done some serious work on the Performante, with clever aerodynamics, a giant rear wing, tuned four-wheel drive, recalibrated steering, grippy tires made by Pirelli and an extra 30PS (30hp) and 40Nm (30lb-ft) of torque produced by the 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10, which resulted in it braking the Nurburgring lap record by posting an unbelievable sub-7min time, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder and even Lambo’s own Aventador SV.

These noticeable changes have significantly transformed the Huracan Performante over its LP610-4 sibling, turning it into a proper driver’s car, according to Chris Harris, who states that this is, quite probably, the best car Lamborghini makes right now.

Nevertheless, as mega as it may be, it’s not perfect, as you can see in the video that follows after the jump.

Watch Japanese Cop On Bicycle Chase And Pull Over A Lamborghini Huracan 22

A Japanese cop riding a…bicycle versus more than 600 Italian horses makes for a very unusual police chase in the Land of the Rising Sun.

It all started when the driver of an orange Lamborghini Huracan ran a red light and was seen by a police officer, who was patrolling the area on a bicycle.

Without thinking twice, the officer proceeds to chase the traffic code violator, and miraculously catches up with the supercar shortly after, pulling it over.

Some may find what comes next even more surprising, as the law enforcement agent kneels down so that he can engage the conversation at eye level, reminding us that respect and politeness are very much present in Japan.

The driver of the Lamborghini Huracan didn’t get away unpunished, with the officer handing him down a pricey ticket, before both of them carried on their way.

Watch The Lambo Urus Take On Its Closest Rivals In Forza 7 20

Now that the Lamborghini Urus has arrived, the big question is how it will stack up against the competition.

That’ll be a difficult question to answer, not least because the Urus doesn’t really have any direct competition – positioned as it is well above any other performance SUV out there, and with much more power.

But it does have some rivals that come close, like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the BMW X6 M, for example – models which also have twin-turbo V8s displacing four-some-odd liters to deliver prodigious performance, albeit not quite at the level of the Urus.

It may take a while yet before anyone’s able to put these three (or really any other would-be contenders) in the same place. But in the meantime, the gamer/YouTuber known as Dizeuul has put them together in the cyperspace of Forza 7 (brought to our attention by our friends at Motor1).

A reliable comparison? Maybe not. But the programmers at Turn 10 Studios pour considerable energy and expertise into getting the vehicles and their environments just right, so it may not be that far off.

Lamborghini Urus Sounds Worryingly Downcast On The Street 16
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini Videos, video on 12 16th, 2017


Unlike its rivals, Lamborghini has, until now, shunned turbocharging and remained faithful to naturally aspirated engines. That’s something that changed with the recently unveiled Urus SUV, which is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the Volkswagen Group.

Of course, this is no surprise, as the engine is small enough to fit in the front of the SUV and delivers the horsepower and torque figures required by such a vehicle. Unfortunately, the twin-turbo V8 does have one major flaw: its sound.

A YouTuber recently stumbled upon a yellow Urus and was able to film it up close. To say it sounds unexciting would be an understatement.

When it is reversing out of a flatbed and trundling down the cobblestone street, the car is barely audible. In fact, the only time you can actually hear the Urus is when it starts up (in the 2nd video), where it does emit a rather satisfying burble for an Audi, but certainly not for something with a Lamborghini badge. The times, they are indeed a-changin’.

You’ll Struggle To Find A Quirkier Car Than The Lamborghini Jarama 16
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Classics, Film, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Videos, Middle East, reviews, video on 12 16th, 2017


While most, if not all classic Italian sports cars have their fair share of quirks by today’s standards, the Lamborghini Jarama might just top them all.

This example, reviewed by Doug DeMuro in Dubai, is about as weird as any Lamborghini we’ve ever seen, and it’s not because of the way it looks.

The Jarama is a 2+2 grand tourer from the early to mid 70’s, featuring a more angled design than the Espada, and a 3.9-liter V12 engine, which actually sounds pretty darn nice, as DeMuro was more than happy to point out during his drive.

Yet, it’s the interior of this car that can only be described as extremely weird. Buttons are positioned all over the place with all types of cryptic symbols on them. The radio is operated by “feel”, not by sight, the windshield washer button is nowhere near where it should be, and there’s a locking mechanism just for the trunk handle (not the trunk), which by the way isn’t a hatch, despite the car’s aesthetics.

On the road, aside from the great engine note, the Jarama isn’t all that quick, and doesn’t feel particularly nimble. But because of the sound, DeMuro really couldn’t wipe the smile off his face while behind the wheel.

2,400 HP Worth Of Lamborghini Huracans Go Toe-To-Toe In Russia 15
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Drag-Racing, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, tuning, video on 12 15th, 2017


Typically, one would have to round up four Lamborghini Huracans in order to have a combined 2,400 hp on display. However, these two twin-turbo Huracans in Russia deliver 1,200 hp each and as you’d imagine, they are insanely quick.

The two recently lined up at one of the country’s famous drag racing events and put on an epic display for those in attendance, rocketing down the arrow-straight stretch of road at truly bewildering speeds.

The race was held on a ribbon of tarmac slightly longer than half a mile and the winning Huracan completed the sprint in 14.544 seconds. By comparison, the second Huracan was only a fraction of a second behind, securing a time of 14.943 seconds. Interestingly, the losing Huracan actually ran the quickest quarter mile of the pair with a 9.5 second time at 261.34 km/h.

As amazing as it is to think about a Huracan with 1,200 hp, what is really mind-blowing is the fact that there are some Huracans out there with well over 2,000 hp on tap.
