Many had wished that a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera would somehow make a surprise debut at the recently held Paris Motor Show. Sadly, not a single Lamborghini appeared anywhere in sight. Much to everyone’s dismay, we are still hoping to see one in the next several months or probably at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. While waiting for this to happen, allow us to share what we just found out.
Though there are no official announcements (yet) regarding the launching of a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera, we are quite positive that things are likely heading this way. The spy pictures are literally everywhere. Only recently, the Italian automaker has also filed for a trademark in Europe and is probably for the new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Although the trademark description has not been disclosed, the filing was placed under paper goods, toys, clothing, electronics and vehicles.
What we have at the moment are pictures of the Gallardo Spyder Performante, which we think will look brilliant if Lamborghini will come up with a possible combination of Spyder and Superleggera for the same. If the recently trademarked vehicle will follow Gallardo’s footprint, it would definitely be an awesome combination, don’t you think?Read the entire article Lamborghini trademarks the Huracan Performante, might just be the Superleggera Spyder
Just last month, Aston Martin took the veil off the all-new DBS Superleggera, the British carmaker’s latest V12-powered flagship that marries the dynamics and athleticism of a supercar and the luxurious refinement of a GT.

The configurator for the Aston Martin took the veil off the all-new DBS Superleggera will prove to be a great aid for interested buyers to ensure that their new super GT is up to their own taste and preferences. Nonetheless, with a starting price of $304,995, the DBS Superleggera isn't that accessible; it is an extraordinary car with extraordinary price. Thus, the online configurator could also serve as a big fan-service to enthusiasts who admire the new DBS Superleggera but whose pockets aren’t deep enough to afford one.
The online configurator for the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera allows one to choose from two color palettes: the typical range of colors from Aston Martin, and the selection of shades exclusive to the Q by Aston Martin service.

Aston Martin has finally unveiled its newest V12-powered flagship that combines the power and sportiness of a super car and the refinement and luxury of a GT – the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
The new Aston Martin combines two names that have been considered memorable names. The name “DBS” is derived from an iconic nameplate that made its debut in 1967. The moniker “Superleggera,” on the other hand, is a tribute by Aston Martin to the groundbreaking innovative lightweight construction methods initiated by renowned Italian coachbuilder, Touring.
Thus, the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera brings the best of two worlds into one Super GT. It boasts of remarkable power and dynamics to deliver an exhilarating driving experience. At the same time, the new DBS Superleggera delivers a high level of craftsmanship as complemented by an opportunity for customers to personalize the Super GT according to their tastes and preferences.Read the entire article 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is a super car in GT guise
Exactly one year ago on March 6th, Lamborghini decided to finally reveal the Huracan Performance at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. This year, the automaker decided to get rid of the coupe’s roof for the same event that is held yearly in Switzerland. The Spyder pretty much has everything you would want in the fixed roof model, but only this model can pull off this type of body style, with the open top.
Even with the company’s same Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), the soft top Spyder has not been hampered in any way. The reason for the ALA is for it to create the sleekest body possible and consequently boost performance. The droptop Huracan also borrowed the coupe’s revised four-wheel drive system, along with an upgraded suspension and the optimized stability control.
Aside from that, Lamborghini’s engineers gave the droptop a lot of forged carbon fiber bits to cut down a total of 35 kilograms (77 pounds) over the standard Huracan Spyder, while also fiddling with its steering. The model now weighs 1,507 kilograms (3,322 pounds) when dry - distributed 43:57 front/rear. The fabric roof can then be lowered at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (50 kilometers per hour).Read the entire article Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder arrives in style
You might think that the Lamborghini Huracan Performante Coupe looks impressive. But have you imagined it without a roof? Yes, as a convertible. The fastest car to lap the Nurburging, the Huracan Performante, has been rendered, sans roof - and it looks insanely beautiful.
Just after publishing his rendering of the facelifted Porsche 918 Spyder, Aksyonov Nikita is back at it with the open-top Huracan Performante Spyder he posted on Behance. In the rendering, the car was illustrated without a roof, but even with its cloth top, it will definitely look as gorgeous. Since the roadster has sleek lines, the design naturally blends in with the convertible layout effortlessly.
Though photos and videos of Lamborghini’s Huracan Performante have been taken while it was out on the Nurburging being tested, the prototype is still wrapped in its camouflage, so we still can’t tell how it looks, but it will definitely get a folding soft-top. Just like the coupe, the Performante Spyder will be equipped with a potent 5.2 liter V10 engine that can produce a whopping 630 horsepower (470 kilowatts) and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-metres) of torque.Read the entire article Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder rendered
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.Read the entire article Lamborghini offers proof of Huracan Performante record run at Nürburgring
According to reports, McLaren, who recently has just released the 720S supercar, is already working on a variant of the supercar. During the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the company had recently announced that they are currently developing a Long Tail (LT) version of the McLaren 720S.
McLaren’s “675LT was a huge success” according to CEO Mike Flewitt, so he thought that launching another Long Tail will have great potential to be a hit, as the LT brand has already been recognized by people after the 675LT. And they know what to expect from it.
The 720S, weighing just about 2,800 pounds due to its carbon fiber body, with 710 horsepower is already so light and fast, considering its 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine. So what more can we expect from the upcoming 720S LT? Expect to be blown away. There are rumors that the LT version will have even more power, better driving dynamics, and will weigh even less - just like the 675LT.Read the entire article Very powerful McLaren 720S Long Tail (LT) will be going up against the Huracan Performante
The Geneva International Motor Show has always been a favorite event for carmakers to show off their highly powered supercars.
In the past years, some of the most prominent supercars unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show are the 759-hp Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 and the 1,479-hp Bugatti Chiron.
Now, the 87th edition of the Geneva Motor Show this year is no exception, as major carmakers are also strutting their supercar offerings – in production or in concept. Here are some of them.Read the entire article Top 5 supercars from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
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.Read the entire article 2017 Geneva: Lamborghini Huracan Performante is the ultimate road car
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.Read the entire article Lamborghini Huracan Performante: new details revealed

Lotus also gave details about the next Elan, which will be placed on hold until 2017, when it replaces the Evora.Read the entire article Lotus planning to build a Superleggera version of the new Esprit
