Lamborghini's new Aventador on stage at the Geneva Motor Show

It only takes a glance at Lamborghini's Aventador to know it's a Lambo. In fact, it inherits from the long-toothed Murcielago the mantle of top-bull in Italian marque's lineup. And with it, beneath the latest interpretation of Lambo's hallmark body origami – yes, the scissor doors remain – comes the technical shiz it needs to fill such a spot. Engine, transmission, suspension, bodywork – it's completely clean-sheet new. All up, they conspire to put the Aventador at the pointy end of the performance spectrum – the first anything-like-mainstream car to kiss 100 km/h in less than three seconds (we're not counting its step-sibling, the Bugatti Veyron, in its class).  Read More

Lamborghini introduces pushrod suspension to series production

One of the highlights of the upcoming Geneva Motor Show will be the unveiling of Lamborghini’s Murciélago successor – a V12 range-topper bristling with the technological candy demanded by the marque’s aficionados. Earlier today, Lamborghini released further details of the new vehicle and true to form, some of the componentry is very special: the electrically powered parking brake; the 400mm carbon ceramic discs with six cylinder calipers ; and the separation of wheel control and damper via an aluminum double wishbone pushrod suspension. The F1-inspired suspension offers race-car precision yet long distance comfort and further strengthens the bleeding-edge brand values of the Volkswagen-owned super sports manufacturer.  Read More

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante

Lamborghini has released details of a new high performance version of the Gallardo. The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is a remarkable 65 kilograms lighter than the LP 560-4 Spyder thanks to liberal lashings of carbon fiber. As Gallardo aficionados will already have gathered from the model’s nomenclature, an extra 10 bhp has been squeezed from the V10 engine, pushing the top speed past 200 mph.  Read More

Lamborghini's extraordinary new V12 powertrain

Lamborghini's high-revving V12 engines have been at the heart of the brand since 1964, powering dreamcars such the Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo and Murciélago. Its next 6.5 litre V12 powerplant is brutally powerful (700 bhp) but raw numbers alone do not do it justice. The 48 valves are electronically actuated while the sophisticated engine, thermal and oil circulation management systems ensure engine health under extreme conditions. You can bet the farm this masterpiece will win Engine of the Year and the new seven-speed “emotional” ISR (Independent Shifting Rod), robotized, servo-actuated transmission is equally as impressive, further illustrating an all-encompassing innovation process.  Read More

Lamborghini's Sesto Elemento on display at the Paris Motor Show

Automobili Lamborghini has become one of the driving forces in carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) research. The Italian automaker runs two development facilities, the ACRC (Advanced Composite Research Center) and the ACSL (Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory), and collaborates with companies such as Boeing. The result is a “host of patents” for CFRP technologies, designed for the production of incredibly light yet strong and stiff automobiles. To show us all what’s possible when it kicks out the carbon fiber jams, Lamborghini has just unveiled its Sesto Elemento concept supercar at the 2010 Paris Motor Show... that would be 570 hp, 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of over 300 km/h (186 mph) for starters.  Read More

Chris-Adi's pic of the Lambo in testing on the autobahn at Top Speed.

Car companies such as Lamborghini need to test their products in the real world and hence can fall victim to well-educated enthusiasts being in the right place at the right time with a camera. Earlier this week the VW-owned Italian supercar maker posted a “teaser image” of what everybody expects to be the Murcielago replacement. Only trouble is, we’ve already seen it – that’s the car itself shot on an autobahn between Chemnitz and Dresden during road testing. Just how everyone seems to know the specs a month prior to the show is a matter for conjecture, but if you want to read the unconfirmed details of the new direct injection 7.0-litre V12, carbon fiber monster which does zero to 60 in 3.0 seconds, read on.  Read More

The world's fastest road car - 1900 rear wheel horsepower and 267 mph after one mile

The emerging sport of One Mile Racing has a new champion – Ray Hofman's 2006 Ford GT runs a twin-turbo motor with a reputed 1900 rear wheel horsepower. A fortnight ago, Hofman piloted his Heffner Performance modified Ford GT over the measured mile with a terminal velocity of 266.9 mph, beating out the other two logical contenders for the title of the world's fastest street car. Just for the record, a Bugatti Veyron exits the standing mile at just over 200 mph. Hofman is now aiming for 280 mph. Is this the world's fastest road car?  Read More
