Lamborghini Aventador: The Fighting Bull Stands Still and Roars (Video) 11

Gosh! Look what we have found. This little clip has the high-revving Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in all its fury. We are more than amazed at the way the car just sits on the tarmac and screams rather than shred it to bits.

The white Aventador is given a warm up it seems. But the exhaust note gives us the feel that it is somewhat suppressed – may be due to the mono recording source or the dual mode exhaust system set to sound minimal or may be the cold start which might have restricted the engine from spinning hard down to the red line (5000 rpm as to 8000rpm). Even though the car isn’t covered much in the video, the vibrantly colored instrument console is.

So for those of you who didn’t know as yet, the Aventador has a 6.5 liter engine with 12 cylinders arranged in V producing 700horsepower. The 0-60mph sprint takes just 2.9 seconds.

Aventador has been named after the Spanish fighting bull that bore the number 32 on his hide. The bull had come from the breeding stables of the sons of Don Celestino Cuadri Vides. Aventador gained fame in 1993 in the town of Zaragoza, Spain after a notably spirited, bloody and violent battle with the torero.

Lamborghini’s upcoming vehicle Gallardo Tricolore, which is supposed have an official unveiling on the 16th of this month, has got leaked via the internet. The vehicle has been built as part of the celebration to commemorate the anniversary of the unification of Italy passing through its 150th year.

The special model, as seen in the picture, features a white exterior with carbon fiber mirrors. As you have noticed, a tricolor strip runs the entire length of the body of the car including the driver’s seat. The tricolor strip denotes the colors of the Italian national flag.

We do not have much  details regarding the price and availability of the vehicle right now. Also unknown are the details of the power source the vehicle features. However, we get to know that the production will be limited to a number of 150 units.

Lamborghini Gallardo Tricolore Defines Good Taste 10
Mar
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Gallardo, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Gallardo Tricolore, News on 03 10th, 2011

When Italian supercar builders release a special edition version of their product, “tasteful” isn’t usually the first word that comes to my mind. Most have garish paint schemes and vinyl decals that look like they were razor cut by a baboon. Wearing a blindfold. Worse, most have giant wings and more carbon fiber than an F1 starting grid. That’s why Lamborghini’s Gallardo Tricolore, built to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Italian reunification, is so stunning. If anything, it’s even more subdued than a regular Gallardo, with the single distinguishing feature being the Italian flag stripe that runs down the car and through the interior. It’s definitely a case of “less is more” when it comes to style.

There’s no further details about the Gallardo Tricolore available just yet, so I can’t tell you haw many will be built, what they’ll cost or even if they’ll be sold outside of the EU. We also don’t know if this special edition gets more horsepower or whether it will come in AWD, RWD or both. Lamborghini will officially roll the car out in Turin next week, so we’ll give you an update (and more pictures) then.

Inside and Out of the new Raging Bull: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 First Glimpse 1
Mar

The newest raging Bull is currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Aventador touts more power and less emissions from its all new 6.5-liter 690 horsepower 509 foot-pounds of torque naturally aspirated V12 engine.

The new Aventador also features a carbon fiber composite monocoque shell design providing extremely high structural rigidity while remaining light weight. Power from the V12 is directed through a 7-speed ISR (Independent Shifting Rods) Graziano single-clutch transmission. Shifts should come in at 50 milliseconds in its most aggressive ‘Corsa’ mode setting. Top speed is said to be above a previous stated 217mph. To slow things down, the new Aventador will feature massive 15.74-inch front ceramic rotors. To keep things in line, the staggered sized wheels are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero 255/55/19-inch front and 335/30/20-inch rear tires.

Price estimates for the new 2012 Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador come in at $370,000. U.S. deliveries should start at the end of October 2011.

Top Gear Fans: Clarkson’s Lambo For Sale 24
Feb
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Jeremy Clarkson, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Top Gear on 02 24th, 2011

Are you a fan of the wit and wisdom of Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson? Do you prize your signed copy of his “Heaven and Hell” DVD above all else (even if he did sign it, “Sod off, Jeremy”)? Are you looking for a 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder with the steering wheel and pedals on the wrong side of the car? If so, I’ve got good news for you – his former ride is up for sale, although he’s not the one selling it. Actually, the car is being sold by its current owner, who bought it from Clarkson. The current owner (and the car, presumably) is in the UK, but the ad is being featured by an Australian website, J-Spec Imports. If you’ve got the $145,000 asking price, you may want to do a little digging before you blindly wire transfer the funding from your account to theirs.

Wow, those seats are... bright. Image: J-Spec Imports

The ex-Clarkson Gallardo has just 19,250 miles on the clock, but that doesn’t surprise me. Clarkson doesn’t seem like a guy with a long attention span when it comes to cars, so I’d be willing to bet that most of the miles aren’t even his. Autoevolution quotes Clarkson’s review of this very car, and it sounds like an impulse buy to me. In Jeremy’s words, “So why, you may be wondering, am I so fond of a squeaky car with no phone, no iPod connection, too much body fat, tyres that last less than three minutes, and the real world performance of a BMW Z4? I’ll tell you why. Because it’s got orange seats. And because it is so pretty. And because when you go above 3500rpm it makes a noise like a punctured sumo wrestler. And because you sit so far forwards, which makes it feel like you’re on the nose of some giant, snarling power-crazed animal.”

Orange seats, sumo sound effects and a seating position that requires chiropractic care are not legitimate reasons to buy a car, so you may want to ponder that before you blindly cut a check.

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Image Leaked From Magazine 22

One of the most anticipated exotics to wear a raging bull on its hood found its way into Evo Magazine Croatia. Images of a rolling-naked chassis of the upcoming Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 were already revealed today but I think we would all rather see the new Lambo dressed all up in its natural sheet metal.

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is essentially the replacement for the outgoing Murcielago. The Aventador LP700-4 will be powered by a 6.5-liter V12 producing 690 horsepower and 509 foot-pounds of torque. The new Aventador should reach the 60mph mark in 2.9 seconds and top out at a speed of 217mph.

For those of you who thought the internet was the master of all image leaks… print media still has some life left in it. How else would we have seen the first images of the Lamborghini Aventador before the Geneva Motor Show?

Meet The Newest V12 Lamborghini 2
Feb
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, News, new cars, supercars on 02 2nd, 2011

Lamborghini isn’t letting us see their latest V12 supercar up close and personal until next month’s Geneva Motor Show, but that didn’t stop them from leaking the above image of the new car in camo guise. The good news is that this test mule isn’t clad in black vinyl, so we get a decent feel for the lines of the car. If this is the final design, I have to say two thumbs up; Lamborghini had been going down a bizarre styling path lately (case in point: the Reventon), and this car pulls them back to center. You can see the influences from Murcielago, but I’m also seeing heritage here. The muscular front fenders remind me of the iconic Countach, but in a more evolved manner.

Lamborghini’s latest will be built using a carbon fiber monocoque, and will utilize a pushrod suspension similar to F1 cars for more precise control. The car will be powered by a 6.5 liter V12, said to be good for 691 horsepower and 509 ft lb of torque. Like newer Ferraris, buyers won’t get the option of a traditional manual gearbox; instead, the car will come only with a single clutch, automated manual gearbox. Drivers can select between Strada (Street) mode, which will shift like a conventional automatic transmission unless manually shifted; Sport mode, which will hold gears longer and quicken upshifts and Corsa (Track) mode, which includes launch control and provides the most extreme driving experience. To ensuring that the power gets to the ground, the new Lambo is AWD and includes a computer-controlled front differential, a Haldex4 center differential and a rear diff integrated into the engine casting to save weight. We promise more pics and more details after the Geneva Motor Show.

Some of the most intriguing vehicles for automotive enthusiasts comes with a Bull emblem on the hood and 12 cylinders in the rear. One ‘Bull’ that eclipses the rest, first introduced in 2006, is the Lamborghini Reventon with its in-your-face styling inspired by a jet fighter. The Lamborghini Reventon features a 6.5-liter V12 with 641 horsepower and a price tag well over $1 million. One of the latest guys to get his hands on one of these bad boys is Jay Leno.

Jay Leno already has several Lamborghinis in his collection including the infamous Miura and Countach. Jay invites Andrew Ramanowski, President of the Lamborghini Club America, to talk about the Reventon in the ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ video below. Best of all, Jay gets to take the Reventon for a spin. Enjoy the video below!

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore Drives into Qatar 27

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, LP 550-2 Bicolore, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore, Qatar Motor Show, Super car news, Two-toned, Upcoming Events on 01 27th, 2011

The special edition dual-hued Lamborghini has unveiled the new Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore has gone up the podium at the Qatar Motor Show. What makes the car distinct is the  two-tone paint scheme with Noctis Black accents. Further, Lambo has also lined up the machine in Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Bianco Monocerus or Blu Caelum.

Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine with 560 PS (412kW / 552 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, akin to the base model, the engine has been linked to the standard e-gear transmission. The Bicolore has capabilities that would help it race from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and has a top speed of 325 km/h.

Lamborghini has designed the car bringing to the fore extreme aspects. The interior has been spruced up with Nero Noctis trim and Nero Persus leather. Though on show at Qatar, the super carmaker hasn’t yet revealed as to what the special edition model would sell for. Lamborghini will drive the car on to European and Asian-Pacific markets.

Those in the North American region may not get to drive the Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore. However, we hear a LP 550-2 Bicolore that has similar equipment with the exception of all-wheel drive and 10 PS (7 kW / 10 hp) of output will be brought to the US.

Porsche China & North America Production Facilities to Kick Off Soon 20

Following realization that Porsche’s current assembly plants in Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart, and Leipzig are too small to meet their high demands, the company is now looking to start production from North America and China. The plan is aimed at hitting the predicted global sales of 200,000 units.

The company believes that building Porsches from North America or China wouldn’t break the tradition since earlier they had given the production of Boxster to Valmet contract manufacturers in Finland.

Porsche is also expected to open a customer centre in China and a test track in Shanghai close to a Formula One track. The company’s dealers in China would be increased from 35 to 85 and then possibly to 100.

It is expected that, during this year itself, Porsche would make a decision on whether to start production from North America or Asia. Porsche might start building their upcoming SUV Cajun in a Volkswagen factory in China.

porsche1 porsche2 porsche3

Apparently the same factory builds the Audi Q5 (SUV). The previous Karmann factory in Osnabrueck, Germany – now acquired by VW – will be used to boost the production of Boxster and Cayman. VW will use the plant to manufacture Golf Cabriolet.

Porsche is merging with VW, making it VW group’s 10th brand along with the likes of Audi AG, Bentley, Bugatti , Lamborghini, Skoda etc. This happened after VW obtained 49.9% of Porsche Automobil Holding SE’s carmaking unit when Porsche last year failed in a bid to takeover VW.

Posted by Alex Ion in Anderson, Automotive News, Gallardo, Lamborghini, Super car news, White Edition on 12 16th, 2010

The new Lamborghini Gallardo White Edition has been revealed by Anderson Germany. From what we get to see, the super car comes adorned in a matte coat. The car is now available for you to drive away, but we are yet to know what kind of a price does come with it.

The engine returns 600 PS (441 kW / 592 hp)m which is a clear increase of 40 PS (29 kW/39 hp).

The new Lamborghini Gallardo White Edition has been presented with an aerodynamic body kit with a new front apron, revised side skirts, a sporty rear diffuser and a fixed rear wing, according to this report.

These apart, the car boasts of a sport suspension, tinted windows, and black 20-inch wheels.
