  1. The Porsche 911 GT3 proved that there’s still demand for high-end sports cars with manual transmissions. But why didn't Lamborghini follow suit? Motor Trend posted this question to Lamborghini Chief Executive Stefano Domenicali and he replied saying that Lamborghini did actually researched on whether it made sense to offer manual gearboxes for special edition models of the Huracan and Aventador supercars. Unfortunately, the costs were too high. He went on to elaborate with a case study: if Lamborghini were to build a special edition Aventador with a manual gearbox, cap production to 200 units, and price it $25,000 (S$33,800) above the ‘regular’ Aventador, that would only generate an additional $5 million (S$6.76 million) for the company. It doesn't help that there is no other vehicle in the Volkswagen Group family which it could share a transmission with too. Meanwhile the Huracan might have been able to use the Audi R8's manual gearbox but sadly the six-speeder is no longer produced and again, Lamborghini wouldn’t be able to justify building one from the ground up. Adding on, Lamborghini's researched also deduced that its manual take rate wouldn’t be as high the Porsche GT3 customers' take up rate of more than 50%.
  2. Would you have the balls to throw a rock at a car? The idiot was lucky the driver didn't get out and knock his head off! <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Ej9SnsxEBFA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Lamborghini Aventador Jackie Chan Edition

    In line with the upcoming Beijing Motor Show in China and Jackie Chan's 60th birthday, Lamborghini took off the wraps of its one and only Aventador Jackie Chan Edition. As part of Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, Lamborghini came up with this special edition with the help of some unique titanium gray exterior paint scheme along with glossy black Nero Ade alloy wheels. Inside, a red and black theme surrounds the car and the word "long" (Dragon in English) is embroidered in the headrests and doors as a reference to the actor's Chinese name - Cheng Long. It is said that the car will be auctioned off and the money raised will be directed towards the China Film Institute's "Jackie Chan Charity Fund" which supports the development of China's film industry.
  4. Spy shooting it's all about being in the right place at the right time. And this photographer just caught probably some of the shots of his life. Not only did he captured a Lamborghini Aventador cold weather testing in the frigid Arctic Circle, but also caught the test driver losing control and going sailing through an intersection and into a snowbank, documenting the crash frame-by-frame. Check the animated image here
  5. Anyone who loves carbon fibre will probably love the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 CARBONADO GT by MANSORY. MANSORY practically took every non carbon fibre body panel of the car and swapped it with carbon fibre. Keen to showcase the amount of carbon fibre it has, it even leaves the centre part of the car clear. One of the biggest exterior change is its new front skirt with optimised air intakes for improved ventilation of the front radiator. Its sides have also grown by 40mm at the front and 50mm at the rear. New diffuser built into the new rear spoiler stabilises the rear at high speeds and creates surface contact pressure together with the enlarged rear wing on the rear axle also. To match its extreme look, MANSORY gave it enough power to back up its look. Fitted with two MANSORY turbochargers, new pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder, it now puts out a humongous 1,600bhp and an electronically-limited torque of 1,200Nm. We assume the limiter was there to protect itself from killing its gearbox! This accelerates the bi-turbo V12 from 0-100km/h in a scant 2.1 seconds. The top speed is an eye-watering 370km/h. Fast enough I hope?

    DMC's Aventador LP988 Edizione GT

    Madness cool. Need it on Gran turismo 6... DMC has released some brand new images with the impressive LP988 Edizione GT package for the Lamborghini Aventador.After it was teased just a week ago, the Lamborghini Aventador LP988 Edizione GT, signed by DMC, is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the tuning company releasing more images with the supercar. The model in question has received some Veneno inspired body kit, which is made out of completely redesigned front and rear bumpers, a vented aerodynamic hood, some carbon fiber body parts, a massive rear wing and some other tweaks. DMC says that the asking price for the body kit stands at 89,990 USD. The Lamborghini Aventador LP988 Edizione GT has also received some engine upgrades which remain unknown for the moment but we do know that the 6.5 liter V12 engine found under its hood can produce, from the standard 700 HP (515 kW), a total output of 988 HP (726 kW). The asking price for this power hike stands at 134,530 USD, so if you’re looking for the entire kit, you should pay a total of 288,888 USD. There are also other improvements worth 64,368 USD, which the tuner will detail in the future, so if you want this upgrade kit, you should pay almost the price of a brand new supercar.
  7. I believe owning a Lamborghini is surely a proud thing for pretty much everyone in the world. When you drive a car like the Aventador, for example, passers-by will most likely think that you're one hell of a successful person - besides the natural jealousy that follows after. It seems not everyone can contain their 'feelings' when they come across such successful people. The cyclist in the video is perhaps a good example. While the driver of the black Lamborghini Aventador is trying to pass the road, this cyclist simply stops right in front of the car. Even worse, the cyclist stares down on the owner and even scolds him. I can't seem to figure out if it's because the elderly cyclist thinks that others should respect him instead of him respecting others or that he thinks car drivers should always prioritise cyclists. Or, perhaps this cyclist just doesn't really like cars after all, which is why he is riding a bicycle in the first place?
  8. We came across a video recently, showing how Emilia Palmer, an eight-year old from Kimbolton, Herefordshire in England's West Midlands, got her wish to get a ride in a pink Lamborghini fulfilled. Emilia suffers from a rare lung illness, requiring her to constantly be on oxygen. She made a request through Rays of Sunshine, which is like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and within days of receiving Emilia's wish, they found someone willing to donate a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. The owner also allowed the charity to get super car resprayed in an eye-searing, matte pink. The hot pink bull was piloted none other than Top Gear's very own Richard Hammond, who dropped by at Emilia's home for a surprise. Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to get all this 'dust' out of our eyes. Watch the video below. http://vimeo.com/76676900 Photo Credits: The Supercar Kids
  9. Recently this little friendly battle was shared around Facebook and it caught our attention. It is not everyday that we get to see supercars battle on the streets. Or rather we don’t even get to see our local supercars stretch their legs because there is nowhere for them to do it here. Not that we condone street racing... The Lamborghini Aventador in the video leading the chase is nicknamed "Pandaventador" and it seems to have quite a decent following in Malaysia. With probably more than 700bhp sent to all four wheels, it easily leaves the Nissan GT-R behind with its immense acceleration. Heavy traffic? Not an issue with the Aventador as the driver weaves in and out of traffic at breakneck speeds. At one point during the chase, the GT-R's in-car camera recorded speeds of more than 200km/h. http://dai.ly/x156rq2 At the end of the video, the GT-R is seen catching up with a Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Part 2 anyone?

    Advice - Never neglect your car insurance!

    If you are planning to buy a car, I recommend that you also plan to buy a car insurance policy that you see fit. Just don't take the car insurance policy for granted. As you know, in Singapore, it is compulsory that every car is covered by a car insurance policy. In addition to that, you need to make sure that you renew it every year as the policy will only be valid for one single year. The same also applies in the U.K., it seems. Just recently, London police officers managed to seize a customised Lamborghini Aventador. As it turned out, the car belongs to Nasser Al Thani, a member of the Qatar Royal Family. For your information, this guy is well known for his fondness of showing his supercars to the public in London, the capital city of the Great Britain. The tuned Aventador got impounded because Al Thani didn't have a proper insurance to cover his Italian supercar. While impounding the car, though, the officers seemed to get a little problem at first, due to the limited headroom and low ground clearance that comes as a result of installing aftermarket carbon fibre splitters. So, after all being said, if you love your car and don't want it to get seized by the police, you better start thinking about a suitable and proper car insurance policy.

    The Lamborghini Cabrera is finally spotted!

    The Lamborghini Cabrera spotted for the first time ever Earlier, about a week ago, I told you that the Lamborghini Cabrera was likely to make its appearance at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Now, things are getting closer to reality. The supposedly long-awaited Gallardo replacement has finally been spotted for the first time ever and it has been attracting plenty of hype on the World Wide Web. The previously rumoured Lamborghini Cabrera Unlike what most people believed before, it seems that Italian automaker Lamborghini has changed its mind and that the Cabrera will no longer borrow styling cues from the Lamborghini Aventador. Judging from its front fascia from what I can see in the picture, the model is looks pretty similar to the current generation Lamborghini Gallardo. Yet, the bonnet feels rather long somehow, keeping in mind that the raging bull is supposed to carry a mid-mounted engine. It's also likely that the Cabrera will count on a 600bhp V10 engine mated to an AWD drivetrain and an automatic transmission. Oh, a RWD drivetrain may also show up later as a special edition, I believe. Sadly there isn't much else I can tell you for now since the super car isn't likely to be offered for sale for another two years anyway, so we still have plenty of time to find out more, don't we?
  12. Although it was actually first rumoured back in March 2012, there has yet to be any more information regarding the supposedly successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo. To make matters worse, the Italian automaker only unveiled a Gallardo facelift last year when most car enthusiasts were actually expecting the next generation Gallardo. So, it was kind of like a prank from the raging bull. However, it seems that the long wait is about to be over. Pictures have emerged on the internet showing what is believed to be the Lamborghini Cabrera. Judging from the images, I believe they reveal the real deal. Looking at the images of the car, it reminds me of one of the latest models Lamborghini recently introduced to the public. Yes, the Cabrera borrows a lot of styling cues from the Aventador, from its front to the rear fascias. Rumour has it that the Lamborghini Cabrera will count on a V10 engine and that its four wheels will receive a total power output of 600bhp from the car's automatic transmission in addition to a dual clutch system. The latter is a new addition as the raging bull used to employ the single clutch E-Gear system. So, it seems like the long wait for the next generation Lamborghini Gallardo supercar is about to come to an end. What do you think?
  13. I don't know about you but, for me, it isn't that easy to imagine when the time will come for me to drive a Lamborghini Aventador, let alone owning one example of one of the world's finest supercars. However, of course, there're people luckier than me that they get to drive such a hyper-powered car within every single day. Only thing is, some of them are probably just not careful enough, like this Thai driver here. Mr. Somkiat Kruwongpaiboon, a 45-year old local businessman, told the police that one of his car tyres blew up as he was heading to his father's funeral ceremony, causing his proud supercar to spin. As a result, the unfortunate Aventador had to 'kiss' (by that, I mean crash into) a number of electric poles as well as trees with its front fascia before it finally came to a halt. Yes, you guessed it right, there's no way that the car wouldn't suffer from a heavy damage after such an incident. The Great Garuda in Hindustan myths However, it was a relief that the Thai businessman survived and only suffered from negligible injuries. According to him, the fact that he survived despite the severe damage to his Italian supercar was all thanks to the amulet he was wearing at that time. It was encrusted in diamond and in the shape of the Great Garuda (which is a God-like character from Hindustan myths). Well, it seems like there're times we need to believe in myths, too. Nevertheless, it seems that perhaps the 690bhp 6.5-litre V12 engine of the Aventador is just too much to handle. You see, that engine, along with its seven-speed single clutch transmission, can push the car from 0-100km/h in a mere 2.9 seconds. To top it off, the raging Italian bull won't stop gaining speed until it reaches at least 349km/h. Judging from the images, it seems like driving a supercar is one thing and, keeping it in one piece is a yet another. So, are you in for a ride in a supercar or would you rather play safe with the average car?

    2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV spotted!

    The current generation Lamborghini Aventador already has what it takes to catch the eyes of people from young to old. It is beautiful, aggressive, and ultimately, there's no doubt that it can tempt people to say "I want one!". However, it seems that the Italian automaker won't stop there. A new generation of the supercar, namely the Lamborghini Aventador SV, is likely well underway. With remarkably large brake calipers, lower front fascia for increased aerodynamics, and also a gurney flap for its rear spoiler, this next generation Aventador transforms into an even more aggressive monster than its elder brother already ruling the driveway of the wealthy. It is believed that this Aventador SV will carry an upgraded 6.5-litre V12 engine. That will get the driver going at 100km/h from a standstill in less than 3 seconds

    Lamborghini

    Unfazed by the Eurozone debt crisis and the 'Fiscal Cliff' episode in the US, Lamborghini's sales in 2012 improved by 30% as compared to a year ago. In terms of absolute figure, the supercar brand moved 2,083 vehicles last year comprising of 922 units of the Aventador and 1,161 units of the Gallardo. Asia took up the largest portion of the sales pie, accounting for 35% of global sales. The China market itself already account for 15%. This should not come as a surprise as Asia continues to be at the forefront of wealth creation, minting millionaires at a faster pace than any other region in the world. Strong sales is only part of Lamborghini's success story. The company's turnover climbed 46% from EUR 322 million in 2011 to EUR 469 million in 2012. With the global economic climate looking brighter, the bull run looks set to continue in 2013.

    There's a second hand Aventador...

    http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.ph...161&DL=2093 I'm very curious about this. Under what kind of situation would a man being able to afford an Aventador sell it off after 600km? Very....strange.

    Lamborghini

    [extract] Sometime back in October I wrote about Lamborghini's venture into the non-sports car market and its plans to introduce a third model so as to accompany its two other models which is the Gallardo and the Aventador. What is not known at that time is what type of car Lamborghini is going to come up with. Initial rumours were pointing at the Estoque Concept Car as the third model; mainly because high performance four-door sedans are the

    The most expensive model scale car

    Collecting model scale cars can be a quite expensive hobby especially those who are particular with the amount of real-life details copied onto the scale models. Prices can range from a mere $5 up to the hundreds and even thousands, for those limited editions made by high-end scale model car companies. This Lamborghini Aventador scale model is rather unique. The reason why I would say that is because the value is much more expensive (worth around US$4.7 million) than a real life one. This scale model is made by a German scale model builder named Robert Gulpen and he made this item using very expensive materials. The model is roughly 1/8 the size of a real Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. It is built entirely out of precious metals; such as gold and platinum, diamonds and even carbon fibre. This is not the first time he had built something like this. Previously, he had built a solid gold 1/18 Bugatti Veyron scale model. With his previous successful model scale Veyron, Gulpen intends to seek out a new scale build with the Aventador as he feels that he car has an uncompromising design. The result is rather spectacular. The car features solid gold suspension design, platinum cast wheels, gold plated carbon fibre body panels and seats lined with over 700 diamonds. If these luxurious items are not enough, Gulpen will add more exclusive modifications to the scale model. The scale model car will be put on auction and Gulpen hopes to raise more than US$670,000 through the auction. He also hopes to enter into the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the world
