A Lamborghini Huracan is being sold at auction for $5 only

What’s the lowest price you can get a Lamborghini for? Whatever your guess is, we’re sure that it won’t be anywhere near $5. So then, that makes you ask – What’s the catch? It’s quite a serious one.

Owning a supercar not only means a one-time big time paycheck, you’ve got more responsibilities than that. And to be more specific, that means having to spend a lot more money on maintenance and repairs.

This one right here is a total outlier. And yes, of course there is a good reason as to why it is only $5. But before I reveal to you the reason, any takers? Sorry, but nope, it’s not a discount coupon or anything. This Lamborghini Huracan is not functioning anymore, and I doubt that even the repair shop can help you out with this - because it’s already in ashes. And I mean that this car has been burned to a crisp. In fact, the Huracan is so damaged that you can’t even recognize it anymore. But who knows, someone’s trash may be a treasure to another person, or even an art piece.

Lamborghini CEO says electric supercars may be possible

Lamborghini has disclosed that it is looking into the possibility of releasing electric vehicles. With the Volkswagen Group revealing that it will be releasing electric vehicles within several years, there was the expectation that other automakers would follow suit. However, then Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann did not believe that the brand should go the way of electric vehicles and preferred to continue creating models that were gas-powered. All that could change though.

Appointed in March 2016, CEO Stefano Domenicali told Automotive News that he is interested in the brand’s plan to produce electric supercars. This however should not come as a surprise given that Lamborghini is in fact under the Volkswagen Group through the Audi division. With the parent company pushing for the creation of a range of hybrid vehicles and pure electric ones, it is possible that this would later trickle down to the Italian automaker that would then make a low-slung supercar.

In the same interview, CEO Domenicali said that while Lamborghini is indeed looking into electrification, customers should not expect anything in the short run. It is important, he added, to be realistic so if an electric Lamborghini model does get launched, it is likely going to happen some years from now.

Lamborghini offers proof of Huracan Performante record run at Nürburgring

Lamborghini has officially offered clear proof that the Huracán Performante was able to set a new record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a time of 6:52.01

It was in early March of this year when the brand revealed that this model managed to get that achievement and as proof, it released a video showing the telemetry. While fans were happy with the achievement, there were some who questioned if indeed the record was real.

According to blog BridgetoGantry.com, the speedometer may have not have received the wheel speed but rather the GPS data, which is considered by some as less precise. What the website did was to compare the speedometer of the Huracan Performante with that of the Aventador SV. The website also said that looking at the video, it appeared that the brand had increased the frame rate by as much as 5%. There were also those who supported Lamborghini like Chris Harris of Top Gear who said that while the video may have been edited, it is possible that the lap time is real.

Spotted: Matte white Lamborghini Centenario arrives in Paris

Lamborghini has begun handing over the Centenarios to their rightful owners in different parts of the world. Last month, the first out of the forty Aventador-based Centenario has been delivered to an affluent car collector all the way to the UAE. There is also the menacing matte black Lamborghini Centenario that was being transported in Germany a few days ago. And very recently, a matte white Centenario has made its way to Paris!

The white Lamborghini in the video is believed to belong to a certain Qatari Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani. By far, the matte white finish is the most extraordinary paint scheme of all that has been delivered.

While the Centenario model that was put by Lamborghini at the show stands last year come in carbon fiber finish with yellow accents, this one generally comes in matte white body paint. But in many ways, it happens to express a different character since it also comes with contrasting color scheme.

If the outspoken chairman and chief executive of Italian sports maker Ferrari, Sergio Marchionne, is to be believed, some of its customers only became Lamborghini’s clients because they couldn’t get their own Maranello-built car.

Speaking before a media forum at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Marchionne made those remarks while answering a number of questions, as thrown to him by the press. He noted during the media forum that the waiting list of some of Ferrari’s car is long, and many failed to make the cut.

Marchionne said that while he has lot of respect for Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali – who once served as principle for Ferrari’s F1 team – he believes those who missed to make the cut for Ferrari cars and were turned away ended up buying Lamborghini vehicles. We wonder how Domenicali would respond to Lamborghini connoted as a second choice to Ferrari cars.

The 2017 Geneva Motor Show has long been the site where great models are first shown and this year's show is no different. Automobili Lamborghini has revealed the Huracan Perfomante, a model that boasts active aerodynamics with aero vectoring as well as makes use of lightweight technologies. In addition, the brand enhanced the powertrain while putting in an all-wheel-drive system and even a new chassis configuration.

One feature is that the body of the Huracán Performante makes use of aluminum mixed with Forged Composite. Because the Forged Composite was able to use chopped carbon fibers for the resin, it resulted in creating the complex and lightweight geometric shapes that would not have been possible if the usual carbon fiber materials were used.

The Forged Composite was used in different parts that included the spoiler in the front and the rear section, the engine bonnet, the aerodynamic diffuser, and even the bumper in the rear. The result is that the brand was able to lower the overall weight by 40 kilograms.

The first example of the most powerful and very exclusive Lamborghini has just been delivered to the model’s first owner. Yes, we are talking about the new Lamborghini Centenario, a special edition model that celebrates the 100th year birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the illustrious Italian sports car manufacturer.

Wrapped in a beautiful combination of black and orange exterior color finishes, this very first Centenario (in coupe version) was delivered to its new owner from the United Arab Emirates. This wealthy customer – one who is really rich to buy a new Lamborghini Centenario as it has a starting price of around EUR1.75 million or $1.9 million – is one of the 40 lucky new owners of this very exclusive sports car from Italy. Despite its price and because of its ultra-exclusive nature, Lamborghini has already pre-sold all examples of the Centenario – 20 coupes and 20 roadsters – even before the Italian sports car maker has formally announced its existence.

As a special model that celebrates nothing less than the birth of the company’s beloved founder, the Lamborghini Centenario has been designed to be very fast and very quick. Its core is played by a stunning naturally aspirated V12 engine that has been tuned to deliver as much as 770 horsepower (574 kilowatts) of output and up to 509 pound-feet (690 Newton-meters) of torque.

Could there be a better version of the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4? Indeed, the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is a powerful supercar that won’t be easily beaten on the road.

With its 5.2 liter V10 engine providing up to 610 PS (449 kW or 602 hp) of output at 8,2,50 rpm and up to 560 Nm (413 lb.-ft.) of torque available at around 6,500 rpm, the Huracan LP610-4 could sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds and from standstill to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.9 seconds while reaching a top speed of 201 mph (325 km/h). Already incredible, isn’t it?

However, the folks at O.CT Tuning apparently don’t think that the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is fast and powerful enough. The tuning company probably thinks that the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 can’t deal with the new Lamborghini Aventador S. In fact, the Aventador S would leave the Huracan LP610-4 in the dust during a sprint or in a race.

Driving a Lamborghini, especially on a track, should be an exhilarating experience. At speeds of around 200 mph, a Lamborghini should be a very exciting sports car to drive. However, speed could kill.

This was recently proven when two men – both of driving age – were killed following a car crash involving a Lamborghini sports car in Las Vegas. It was supposed to be a fun track-day driving experience for a client at SpeedVegas, a track center that offers customers a way to fulfill their dreams of driving exotic cars without having to buy or lease one. But the dream for this particular customer turned into a nightmare.

This customer, a male in his 30s, availed of the Lamborghini driving experience from SpeedVegas. The track center is offering two Lamborghini driving experiences – one on a Huracan while the other is a ride on a Gallardo. The Huracan experience costs $79 per lap, with a minimum of five laps. The Gallardo experience is cheaper at $59 per lap, also with a minimum of five laps. Each of these sports cars have max speeds of around 200 mph, and crashing even at speeds of 100 mph is not a joke.

Come on baby, light my fire… Suddenly, a recall becomes a sensational news for more than 12 minutes and 33 seconds. Lamborghini earlier this week announced it is issuing a recall on the Aventador model range. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall includes the Super Veloce, the Pirelli Edition, the Miura Homage and the Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario.

The notice said there are issues concerning the vehicle’s Evaporative Emission Control System, which had to do with some faulty purge valves and defective ROV (roll over valve) along its fuel tank.

The ROV basically seals off the valve opening in order to prevent fuel leaks under unfortunate circumstances. The purge valve meanwhile controls how much fuel vapor is purged from the carbon canister.

It was just last week that Lamborghini gave everyone their first glimpse of the new Aventador S. Not surprisingly, a number of artists immediately went to work and revealed their own renditions.

One of this is X-Tomi which revealed a Roadster version. The open top version of this model is likely to experience the same changes on the bodywork done for the coupe. This not only gives it a form that is efficient on an aerodynamic level but one that displays aggressiveness as well. The final product will probably have the same appearance and the different changes incorporated to the design combined with the new exhaust system and modified suspension.

It will even have the four-wheel steering first seen on the S. Powering this variant will be the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine which brings with it an extra output of 39 hp (40 PS) totaling 730 hp (740 PS). This power could reduce the already incredible acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) of 3.0 seconds.

The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is one of the true beautiful menaces on the road. But it has just has been made more beautiful and more menacing by the people at Vision of Speed (VOS). Not only that, it has created a tuning project that could be considered as the fastest Huracan to date.

One of the main reasons why the Huracan Spyder is a beautiful road menace is that it features whopping power levels -- 610 hp (449 kW) of max output at 8,250 kW and 560 Nm (413 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available at 6,500 rpm. This 5.2-liter V10 V10 engine with Multi Point Injection and Direct Stratified Injection sends power to all wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox LDF (Lamborghini Doppia Frizione).

Riding a hybrid chassis made from aluminum and carbon fiber, the Huracan Spyder features a body made of aluminum and synthetic material. In terms of design, no one can really say that the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is an ugly creation. That fact that Vision of Speed chose the Huracan Spyder as its next tuning project is an evidence of its sporty beauty.

Quite a number of hearts were broken when a test mule -- believed to be the new Lamborghini Urus -- seen at the Munich airport turned out to be a camouflaged Audi Q7 SUV. However, that didn’t reduce interest in the new Urus and instead, it even caused more people to become curious about Lamborghini’s first-ever SUV.

This time, we are hoping that it is the real Lamborghini Urus that was recently spotted being driven on the roads of Denmark. Pro-street.dk reported the sighting, which involved what’s speculated to be a heavily camouflaged Lamborghini Urus.

With Stefano Domenicali, chief executive of Lamborghini Automobili, saying that the luxury sports car maker would soon unfurl more details about the Urus in the next few weeks, a global debut of the production version of the SUV at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March could be expected. This implies that the camouflaged test mule spotted in Denmark could be the closest final production form of the new Lamborghini Urus. It may even be the actual model already.

Stefano Domenicali, chief executive of luxury sports car maker Lamborghini Automobili, has dropped quite a number of details regarding the brand’s newest offering, the Lamborghini Urus luxury, high-performance SUV.

Domenicali was able to give DigitalTrends a few minutes of his time, and during the interview the top honcho didn’t think twice about revealing and confirming some juicy details about the Urus SUV.

For instance, Lamborghini really has high expectations for the Urus, and Domenicali wants everything to be perfectly in place when the carmaker starts selling the luxury performance SUV to a new market and to new customers.

The Lamborghini Aventador supercar remains as strong and as appealing as when it was introduced in 2011. Already nearing six years old, the V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador managed to remain fresh, especially when the super sports car maker just recently revealed the Lamborghini Aventador S. In fact, the replacement model for the Aventador is not bound to appear in the next five to six years.

One of the central pieces of the Lamborghini Aventador has been its naturally aspirated V12 engine. Known for monstrous power outputs and torques, V12 engines have been the powerplants of choice for Lamborghini’s flagships. And when Lamborghini finally replaces the Aventador, the new super sports car will still be powered by a V12 engine, chief executive Stefano Domenicali was quoted by Car Advice as saying.

In a regular Aventador (Aventador LP 700–4), this 235-kg 6.5-liter 60-degree V12 engine delivers 700 PS (510 kW or 690 bhp) of max output and 508 lb.-ft. (689 Nm) of peak torque. In the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce (SV) unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine was seen to develop 750 hp (552 kW) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The V12 engine in the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage, meanwhile, generates 700 hp (515 kW) of max output and 507 lb.-ft. (690 Nm). The latest version of the super sports car, the Lamborghini Aventador, features a V12 engine that provides 740 hp of max output and 690 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm.

The up and coming Lamborghini Urus signals the brand’s official foray into the still expanding world of sports utility vehicles. Lamborghini even promised that Urus would the most powerful and the fastest SUV ever. However, it seems that the new Lamborghini Urus would also signal the brand’s venture into the electrification and turbocharging technologies.

In December, Lamborghini’s chief of research and development Maurizio Reggiani, confirmed to AutoCar that the carmaker is keen on offering a plug-in hybrid version of the Lamborghini Urus. This hybrid version would be just one of the many variants of the SUV. This information was recently reiterated by Reggiani to Car Advice during the global launch of the new Lamborghini Aventador S. He nonetheless divulged that similar electrified technologies would also make their way into Lamborghini’s future super sports cars.

Reggiani remarked that a PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) system that Lamborghini has is currently ideal to be fitted an SUV platform. But Lamborghini’s current PHEV technology wouldn’t be suitable – as per the carmaker’s standards -- to be fitted in a super sports car. While a PHEV sports car from Lamborghini is possible, it would only be introduced at the right time, according to Lamborghini chief executive Stefano Domenicalli. The company’s top honcho disclosed two things: Lamborghini’s next-generation super sports car platform is already on the works, and the new Lamborghini Urus SUV will have a hybrid powertrain.

The newest version of the Lamborghini Huracan is not a Superleggera, but a Performante. When Lamborghini filed for a patent for a new name, there were still debates whether this would be for a Superleggera or a Performante. Now, we know it is for the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.

As its name indicates, the focus of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante is all about performance. While the Huracan Performante is lighter than a typical Huracan by around 90 lbs (40 kg), the weight saved wasn’t that great as the development didn’t focus on making the supercar as light as possible.

Hence, Lamborghini opted to baptize this Huracan as a Performante, instead of Superleggera (which is the Italian term for “super light”). A performance version of a Lamborghini Huracan is clearly at another level, considering that this supercar is already a true performer on the road.

The bidding war for one of the only 20 examples -- 21 actually, but the 00 version went to a museum -- of the classically beautiful Lamborghini Reventon built and sold nearly a decade ago is about to start tomorrow.

As you could have guessed, this Lamborghini Reventon is one of the prized lots being put under the hammer by auction house RM Sotheby’s during its Arizona sale on January 19, 2017. In fact, RM Sotheby’s expect this ultra-rare Lamborghini Reventon to be sold at a very high price ranging between $1 million and $1.4 million, although it won’t surprise us if it the final auction price went beyond expectations. This price is only appropriate if we look at the credentials of this model.

First of all, the Reventon is a rare Lamborghini, because of the very small numbers built (20). Moreover, this is the third (Chassis # ZHWBU77SX8LA03148 and Serial # 03/20) of the 20 examples that were built. Since only 20 examples were produced, each example fetched a very high price of around EUR1 million when the Reventon was launched.

As far as Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. is concerned, 2016 was a very fruitful year. This is all due to the fact that the luxury sports carmaker has delivered the most cars in 2016 than any year in its entire history. Not only that, this sales milestone should allow Lamborghini to ride the momentum in 2017.

According to Lamborghini’s annual sales report, it was able to deliver 3,457 vehicles around the world in 2016, around 6.5 percent more (plus 212 vehicles) than the number of units that the company delivered in 2015 (3,245). This marks the first time that Lamborghini was able to breach 3,400 deliveries in any given year, as the company made full use of its 135 dealers spread in 50 countries worldwide. In addition, 2016 marks the sixth year in a row that the carmaker was able to post a surge in deliveries.

The United States remains as the carmaker’s largest single market, with 1,041 delivered in the country in 2016. Japan was the second largest market for the carmaker, followed by the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, the Middle East and China.
