At 4,850 pounds or 2,200 kg, the Lamborghini Urus may not weigh as much as some SUVs – but it's still a good 800 pounds or more than 360kg heavier than the Aventador. And with 641 horsepower, keeping all that mass and power under control places very high demands on its tires.

Underground Racing Puts 2,500+HP Lamborghini Huracan Up For Sale 13
Jan
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, tuning, Underground Racing, used cars on 01 13th, 2018


Underground Racing have listed a very special Lamborghini Huracan, with an insane amount of power, for sale. Made in 2015, this Italian exotic only has 883 miles (1,421km) on the clock, most of them for testing purposes.

This Huracan has a twin-turbo upgrade, which together with other work carried in the engine compartment allows it to produce almost twice its initial output, namely 1,200 horsepower. Mind you, that’s on pump gas; fill its tank with VP import race gas and the tuner claims the supercar will put down a whopping 2,500hp!

Sadly, though, Underground Racing haven’t disclosed any performance data, so we have no idea how fast this Huracan is from 0 to 60mph (96km/h), or how quick it can complete a 1/4-mile.

However, in 2016, another twin-turbo Huracan modified by the same company reached 247mph (398km/h) during a 1/2-mile run, on street tires, while an Audi R8, with the same amount of power, sprinted down the same distance at 244mph (393km/h).

Another thing that Underground Racing won’t disclose is the supercar’s price, but someone truly interested in it should have no problem finding out how much they’re asking for it.

Porsche Working On An EV Supercar Platform Called SPE 11
Jan
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Electric Vehicles, Lamborghini, porsche, Reports, VW on 01 11th, 2018


Porsche is reportedly developing a platform dedicated to electric sports cars and supercars that will be shared with Lamborghini and Audi.

The new EV-specific architecture will be the third one VW Group creates and will go by the name SPE, Automotive News reports.

The first indication of the new EV supercar platform came as a footnote in a capital markets presentation by VW Group last November.

Aside from Porsche’s high-performance EVs, the new SPE platform could be used in future models like the replacement of the electric Audi R8 e-tron as well as in a possible new Lamborghini. After all, the Italian supercar maker did unveil the Terzo Millennio concept recently, as an electric supercar from the future.

A senior VW executive confirmed to AutoNews that Porsche is indeed developing an EV platform for two-door sports cars and supercars, with a spokesman saying that it’s too early to provide further details. “We do not want to comment on future projects in detail at the moment,” he said.

Information on the planned electric sports cars and supercars is really limited at the moment, with the first SPE-based models expected to hit the roads after 2025.

Visit Paris, Come Back With A Collection Of Classic Lamborghinis 7
Jan
Posted by Carscoops Staff in auction, Classics, Lamborghini, Lamborghini 350 GT - 400 GT, Lamborghini Countach, Lamborghini Diablo on 01 7th, 2018


There are plenty of good reasons to visit Paris: the architecture, the food, the culture…. But one auction house has another reason in store for you: the Lamborghinis.

That’s right: Paris, not Bologna, is the place to go this winter if you’re keen on starting your own collection of classic Lamborghinis. Because RM Sotheby’s has a whole slate of them lined up for its upcoming annual sale during Retromobile week.

Among them is a 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2, one of the first that the Raging Bull marque made. The property of one owner for 50 years and with less than 40,000 miles on the clock, the Azzurro Mettallizzato sports car with a black leather interior is expected to sell for between €450,000 and €500,000 (or about $540-600k).

There’s a white 1970 Espada on offer as well, held by the same owner from new until just a few years ago. It’s offered without reserve, but is projected to sell for €160-200k (~$190-240k). A dark blue 1971 Jarama 400 GT (also a 2+2) is valued at €130-180k (~$156-216k).

Prefer your Lambos with the engine behind the cabin? There’s a splendid yellow ’85 Jalpa valued at €100-125k ($120-150k), a white 1991 Countach 25th Anniversary edition at €250-300k ($300-360k), and a silver ’96 Diablo SE30 at €275-325k ($330-390k).

There’s no Miura to be found, but with the prices those have been commanding of late, that may be just as well – especially for the budding collector. Scope ’em out in the images below captured by Dirk de Jager, Peter Singhof, Remi Dargegen, and Lukas Laurikietis for RM Sotheby’s, and pack your bags for February 7 at the Place Vauban in Paris.

Lamborghini’s Jalpa Could Be A Classic Worth Bidding For 6
Jan
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in auction, Classics, Lamborghini, UK, used cars on 01 6th, 2018


It may not be nowhere as famous as the iconic Miura or Countach, but the Lamborghini Jalpa remains an important piece of the automaker’s history.

Built in only 419 examples, including 34 in right-hand drive, from 1982 until 1990, it was Lamborghini’s answer to the Ferrari 308, and it came with a 3.5-liter V8 engine, rated at 255hp, a five-speed manual transmission and independent suspension.

Pictured here is the 46th unit that rolled off the line in early 1983, which had four previous custodians until being purchased in 2001 by its fifth owner, a Lamborghini enthusiast who took great care of it. During this period, the Jalpa went through a full restoration, which included finishing its targa top in body color and fitting a radio/cassette player, Carello fog lamps with covers, and baby Vitaloni mirrors.

In 2013, this Jalpa was passed on to its sixth owner, who is now looking to part ways with it, listing it for sale at the Silverstone Auctions event, which takes place on February 23, at the Race Retro International Historic Motorsport Show 2018, at Soneleigh Park, Coventry, UK.

The auction house states that the sports car has 85,500km (53,437 miles) on the clock, and that it’s “eminently driveable”, expecting it to sell for £65,000-£75,000 ($88,090-$101,653).

Vandal Goes To Town On Rare Lamborghini Huracan Avio 6

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Offbeat News on 01 6th, 2018


Not to make light of a serious matter, but either somebody was jealous for not getting one of just 250 units of the Huracan Avio, or they had some issue with the owner of this car.

Jokes aside, it’s the latter, as some people choose to take their frustrations out on cars whenever they feel like getting revenge on someone.

According to the car’s owner who goes by the nickname POG, his Huracan Avio was keyed on three different sides. He also says that he wasn’t expecting to see something like this in Bruges, a nice, quiet town in Belgium.

“I am surprised by this. My sports cars have never been vandalized, considering I take them everywhere. People respect this type of car… most of the time.”

Unfortunately, someone didn’t. Perhaps that someone was on drugs, drunk, a jealous other half… Anyhow, now it’s up to the police to find out who the offender was.



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