Cristiano Ronaldo became the laughing stock of the web by posting a photo of his Lamborghini


Cristiano Ronaldo has been offered a new luxury car and wanted to share with his fans. These were not very receptive because they did not hesitate to mock the photo shared by the European champion.Cristiano Ronaldo is certainly a bit bling bling, he loves spoiling his entourage, but also be fun time to time by offering a gift beyond price. This weekend, the football player of Real Madrid became the proud owner of a luxury car. A black Lamborghini matte finish that will not go unnoticed when it will happen in training ... To immortalize his new toy, the sport 31 years posted a photo on her Instagram account. CR7 poses in front of his car (and its luxurious property incidentally), so far nothing crazy, but look closer laying "winner" taken by the footballer. Cristiano Ronaldo is probably very proud to do this picture. Straight as a he puffs out his chest and looks like a tough guy ...In short, the cliché has obviously led to many diversions on social networks. Everyone went to his little mockery. Photo resulted in many cartoons: Ken or superheroes, the footballer has seen all colors. [...]

Lamborghini Aventador spotted with more aggressive look


Lamborghini Aventador spotted with more aggressive lookLamborghini AventadorLamborghini AventadorLamborghini AventadorThe Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been an enormous success for the Italian car manufacturer. The big, strapping V12 supercar propelled Lamborghini to record profits some years agone and therefore the car manufacturer needs to confirm that the Aventador remains relevant with a minor facelift that creates it look even a lot of aggressive. Photographers caught Associate in Nursing Aventador testing at the Nurburgring and therefore the vehicle appears like a diluted Aventador LP750-4 SV.At the front, the epitome has smaller air intakes on either facet of the front grille, of a lot of identical angular style because the a lot of powerful SV. These replace the unclogged, larger square-like intakes on the regular model. The epitome still has identical overall profile because the current model.The changes at the rear of the epitome area unit a lot of dramatic. The rear wing continues to be identical form and size, however the rear vents, that sit just under the taillights, seem to be smaller and a lot of rectangular. The diffuser, that protrudes out of the prototype's tail, is nearer to the one found on the SV than the a lot of restrained one on the traditional Aventador.The exhaust outlet on this check vehicle is additionally completely different with a triangular form that incorporates a three-pipe style rather than the oval-enclosed four-pipe style on this Aventador. it is also completely different from the exposed quad-pipe layout rising from the SV's aggressive hindquarters. We're positive the various exhaust layout can alter the supercar's sound, however rest assured that the revamped Aventador will still spit a colossal ball of flame.Rumors hint at the Aventador obtaining some further power from its half dozen.5-liter V12 that presently generates 691 power unit and 509 pound feet of torsion. whereas the performance increase is up within the air, a dose of further aggression can keep the Aventador wanting recent because it ages.[...]

it could only happen in London's enclave for the ultra-rich. The young driver of a Lamborghini Aventador, which carries a price tag of up to $500,000, faces a very hefty fine and repair bill after it was involved in a three-car collision on London's luxurious Sloane Street.

While no further details have emerged about the crash which took place on March 30, a video posted on YouTube suggests the car was driving above the area's 30mph speed limit. Failing to avoid a car turning into the street, the Lamborghini is seen impacting a parked BMW and a Mazda5. The force of the collision sent the matt-black sports careering down the road on two wheels before coming to a messy end.

After 10-year run, production of Lamborghini Gallardo ends


After 10 years of production and over 14,000 units sold, the final Lamborghini Gallardo has rolled out of the company's factory, destined for a private collector.
The last-ever Gallardo is a LP 570-4 Spyder Performante in Rosso Mars red, with a model number of 14022. The model is the most successful and popular Lamborghini in the company’s sometimes-checkered history.
But that almost wasn't the case. The first car to be built from the ground up following Audi's takeover, the car was regarded by many purists as too ‘German', too well-built, and lacking in passion and excitement.

The company listened to these early criticisms, and by 2005, the car's performance and handling characteristics had been overhauled. That year also saw the hardtop version of the Gallardo joined by a Spyder open-top version, which managed to recapture the Lamborghini madness of models past.
The result was a car that looked incredible parked in the driveway, that put a smile on the driver's face at any speed and that, despite lacking some of the technological gimmicks of some of its peers, could beat the refined Ferrari F430 around pretty much any track, thanks to its 520bhp V-10 engine and permanent four-wheel drive.
Before the Gallardo, Lamborghini was lucky if it could make and sell 200 cars a year and stay in business. Once the Gallardo found its audience, Lamborghini was able to increase production ten-fold. The company now produces and sells 2,000 cars a year.
Before the Gallardo, the company's most successful vehicle had been the Espada, the four-seat tourer built between 1986 and 1978, with about 1,200 units made.
The company has only managed to sell 30,000 cars in its history, meaning that nearly half of all Lamborghinis are Gallardos.
But times change and despite a couple of facelifts and specification tweaks, the Gallardo is starting to look its age, especially under the hood. And while it can still lap the Ferrari F430, the Ferrari replacement -- and therefore the Gallardo's most direct competitor -- the Ferrari 458 Italia, has taken supercar performance to a whole new level.
And that's a good thing: it means that the Gallardo's replacement, which could be unveiled as soon as the Geneva motor show in March, already has a benchmark to beat.


Lamborghini to serve south via dealership in B'lore


Lamborghini to serve south via dealership in B'lore

Italian luxury and super sports car maker, Lamborghini, is planning to set up its first dealership in South India in Bangalore in the next six months. The Indian arm of the company is also looking at reaching the sales target 20 units this year amidst the adverse industry conditions, according to a top official from the company.

The company, which has its dealership in Delhi and Mumbai, has sold around 30 units in South India, of the 90 units it has sold across the country so far. It is expecting the South Indian market to have a larger share in its overall sales in future, with a new dealership coming up in Bangalore.

“We have started the process to set up the dealership in Bangalore in the next six months. This would cater to Tamil Nadu and Kerala markets too,” said Pavan Shetty, head (operations), Lamborghini India. He added unlike other parts of the country, South India had multiple bigger cities with sales potential.

The super sports car maker, which sold 17 units last year and 14 units during the year before that in India, is targeting 20 units this year. However, Shetty agreed the super sports car market was going through a tough phase and the total sales in the industry came down from 100 units in 2011 to 90 units in 2012. This is expected to further come down this year and the associated numbers are not known at present.

The company, which began selling in India from 2006, has set up its own operations in India in 2011. It is strengthening operations through a logistics team and in terms of products and services to cater to the market, which has a low base and opportunity for growth, he said.

While the company annually revises its prices to face the duty increase and other external cost increase for the imported car, it is exploring possibilities for a price revision next year owing to the currency fluctuation. It went for a price revision in March this year when the duty on imported cars was increased.

It has eight variants between two models - Aventador and Gallardo – in the country with a price range of Rs 2.83 - 3.64 crore for Gallardo and Rs 4.8 -5.46 crore for Aventador.

Lamborghini reveals $4.5 million roofless car


Lamborghini reveals $4.5 million roofless car

Lamborghini has released photos of its latest multi-million supercar, the Veneno Roadster. The car is an open-roofed version of the Lamborghini Veneno coupe, which was unveiled at last year's Geneva Motor Show.

While the car is priced at $4.5 million -- $500,000 more than the Veneno coupe -- it will actually be easier to get, provided you can afford it. Lamborghini's plans to build the car were announced in August.Gallery - Lamborghini Veneno up close
That's because Lamborghini will produce nine of these cars during 2014. Production of the coupe was capped at just four, one of which is being kept at the Lamborghini museum.
The Veneno Roadster is not a convertible. It has no roof at all, only a roll bar for crash safety. The all-wheel-drive car is powered by a 750 horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine and can go from zero to 62 miles an hour in just 2.9 seconds, according to Lamborghini. The car's top speed is 221 miles per hour.
The Roadster is made almost entirely from carbon fiber-reinforced polymers. Even soft interior materials are made from a woven carbon fiber fabric. Unike the Veneno coupe, which was available to the public only in three pre-determined color schemes, buyers will be able to choose their own paint colors for this car

2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse


2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra CorseWith the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, Automobili Lamborghini brings race track emotion directly to the road. It delivers high performance and brings the fascination of motor racing to the street-legal world. This new and most extreme model in the Gallardo line-up is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world’s fastest one-make series. The car will have its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.The name Squadra Corse refers to the recently-founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America where gentlemen drivers battle face-to-face in fierce contests on the most challenging racetracks.The new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars. Both share the same V10 engine, which is used in the racing version with no modifications. Likewise, the Squadra Corse has the same rear wing for greater aerodynamic load – achieving, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 – for increased dynamic stability during tight, high-speed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood with quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are a host of other components on the Squadra Corse.Lightweight construction through consistent use of carbon fiberTogether with aluminum, carbon fiber is the basis behind the extremely lightweight construction of the new Gallardo new top model. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse boasts a dry weight of 1340 kilograms, 70 less than the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4, which gives the Squadra Corse a stunning power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per hp for breathtaking performance. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in just 10.4 seconds. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 320 Km/h. The production-standard carbon-ceramic brake system guarantees unmatched stopping power.The technology and the powertrainLike the Super Trofeo competition version, the new Squadra Corse is based on the technical underpinnings of the Gallardo Superleggera. The V10 engine generates 570 hp, equivalent to 419 kW, which is fully available at 8,000 rpm. The V10’s unique firing order delivers the striking sound you hear in motor racing. Like the race car, the Gallardo Squadra Corse comes as standard with the robotized e-gear six-speed transmission operated by steering wheel paddles. This electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears smoothly and much faster than any pro driver could. Every kilometer in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is packed with sheer excitement, in part due to its unrelenting grip in virtually all situations thanks to its all-wheel drive concept.The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is the only single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel drive race cars. The Gallardo Squadra Corse is a highly concentrated driving machine offering a truly stunning driving experience with breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. Its road manners are always precise, stable and completely safe.Respresenting Italian racingThe Gallardo Squadra Corse shows its ultimate racing performance even in its exterior design – clearly attesting its committment to its Italian homeland. A decal strip along the flank displays green, white and red, the colors of the Italian flag. The Squadra Corse is available in Giallo Midas (yellow), Bianco Monocerus (white), Grigio Thalasso (grey) and in Rosso Mars (red). The exterior look of the Gallardo Squadra Corse is perfectly accented with a matte blac[...]

Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Affolter (GT Days 2013)


Affolter was known in France, at the height of the Auto through highly customized Lamborghini Diablo and covered with vibrant colors. You can also admire this generation Diablo in one of the images in the background.

Since the entity that manages the called Ital Design Car customization and became more discreet on the international scene.
The vehicle we offer today has been immortalized in the 2013 GT days, a collection of modern GT held on 18 and 19 May 2013 on the Magny Cours track and is characterized by rolling on a track, but also organized a road trip, and other related activities.
This is a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 SVR renamed. A designation reflecting a slight customization includes new wheels, painting and minor modifications selected annexes as colored lights.

2008 Lamborghini Gallardo


  2008 Lamborghini Gallardo What's New for 2008 The Lamborghini Gallardo coupe and Spyder remain unchanged for 2008, although a new higher-performance edition known as the Superleggera makes a one-year appearance. Introduction The 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo does not appear to have been designed for "Star Wars" by Industrial Light & Magic. It isn't wider than a Chevy Silverado. The doors don't slice and dice and make julienne fries. Yet these characteristics have been some of Lamborghini's calling cards for the past 30-something years, applied to a wild sports car bunch that took the word "exotic" to even higher levels. Cars like the Countach, Diablo and most recently, Murcielago, were not only wildly expensive but also often cumbersome to drive.The Gallardo, by comparison, is only really expensive, versus wildly so. And with saner dimensions, traditional doors and a more habitable cockpit, it's the first Lamborghini in decades to be considered actually livable. And what a fun life it must be for those who purchase one of the three Gallardo variants: the standard coupe, Spyder convertible and the lightweight performance edition known as the Superleggera. New for 2008, the latter's more aggressive suspension tuning and weight reductions (about 150 pounds) make it less livable than the other two, although the Superleggera does increase the Gallardo's handling and performance prowess significantly.As for the higher-volume 2008 Gallardos, they feel surprisingly similar -- the Spyder's 250 additional pounds of structural reinforcement bless this topless Lambo with unyielding integrity that the coupe manages to only slightly surpass. As such, both versions display prime composure, taking to twists, turns and dips like Fred and Ginger -- or Jason Taylor and that brunette girl from "Dancing with the Stars," if you have no idea who Fred and Ginger are.It's important to note that the Sant'Agata factory has already begun production on the coupe's successor, next year's improved Gallardo LP560-4. The Spyder will carry over unchanged, but the Superleggera will be sold for only this year. As such, coupe buyers might want to wait a bit until the '09 model arrives. Either way, however, it's hard to describe the Gallardo as anything but Lamborghini's best car ever. True, it's not the brand's most memorable model, nor will it likely be a timeless classic. But in terms of actual driving enjoyment and daily functionality, it can't be topped. Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options The 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo comes in two body styles: a coupe and a convertible known as the Spyder. The coupe is also available in a lightweight, higher-performance edition called the Superleggera. Standard equipment on all models includes 19-inch wheels, an automatically extending rear spoiler, bi-xenon headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a four-speaker stereo with six-CD changer and two auxiliary audio jacks, and a multimedia control interface virtually identical to Audi's MMI system. The Spyder adds a fully powered soft top and integrated tonneau cover. Options include a suspension lift system to prevent front spoiler scrapes, carbon-ceramic brakes, a rearview camera, heated seats and side mirrors, and a navigation system. Lamborghini also offers a variety of special-order "Privilegio" options, most of which involve specialty colors and trims. Powertrains and Performance The all-wheel-drive Gallardo c[...]

2012 Lamborghini Aventador Triangle by German Special Customs


You may not have been familiar with these guys before, but German Special Customs is doing a pretty good job in getting some attention.

The German tuning company has been featured recently on two occasions with his works in the AMG Mercedes CLS63 and Lamborghini Aventador. But apparently, the two are just the beginning of what appears to be a ridiculous new-line adjustment projects. Not content with just one powerful program for the Italian supercar, GSC has come up with another, called the Triangle.

We're not exactly sure what the logic behind the name is, but the Italian custom program specialist will make us forget the name. Like the Aventador GXX Height, Triangle Aventador comes with a new body kit and fresh, though a bit more subdued than the Height, remains one that adds a whole new dynamic in the Aventador.

The carbon fiber body kit includes a new front bumper, a new rear bumper, side skirts, wider, a modified hood, a huge rear spoiler and a new titanium exhaust.

No word yet on performance mods, but do not be surprised if one is coming soon. What we do know, at least judging by the photos, is that the triangle could be a street-legal version, while the GXX Height resembles its exclusive for the purposes of the track.

Lamborghini Murcielago GT by DMC

DMC has already previewed their styling package for the Lamborghini Aventador, so the tuner is going old school by introducing a new program for the Murcielago LP580.

Designed to blend in with the contours of the car, the carbon fiber body kit includes a new front fascia and an aggressive rear bumper.

In the performance department, engineers added a stainless steel sport exhaust system and a remapped ECU. Thanks to the latter modification, the 6.2-liter V12 engine produces 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) and 495 Nm (365 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 28 hp (21 kW / 28 PS) and 16 Nm (12 lb-ft).

Last but not least, the interior is outfitted with custom leather upholstery and carbon fiber trim.

Rated at 11 mpg city / 17 mpg highway

U.S. Environmental Protrection Agency (EPA) has accidentally confirmed the Lamborghini LP700-4 Roadster Aventador will be launched in 2012. Although it was expected, it's always nice to have some confirmation of backups doubt.

Like the coupe, the roadster will feature a 6.5-liter V12 engine with 700 hp (690 hp / 515 kW) and 690 Nm (£ 509-ft) of torque. This will be linked with the seven-speed transmission and all-wheel drive system that allows the car to have fuel economy rating of 11 mpg city / 17 mpg highway.

Paris Motor Show 2010: Lamborghini reveals the Sesto Elemento



Along with the rest of the industry, Lamborghini has identified lighter weight as a
way to increase the efficiency of its cars. But unlike parent company Audi, which as been working with aluminium platforms, the Italian supercar manufacturer has gone for carbon-fibre. Everywhere.
Its Sesto Elemento “technology demonstartor” on show at Paris is based on the V10-engined Gallardo platform with four-wheel drive. Although it’s not planned as a production model Lamborghini says the concept previews the patented carbon-fibre-reinford plastic (CFRP) technologies that will be highly evident in the next new models to emerge from the Sant’ Agata factory – which means the replacement for the spectacular but long-in-the-tooth Murcielago.
The Sesto Elemento weighs only 999kg (2,202lb) and has a startling power to weight ratio – with a 570bhp V10 engine, 0-62mph acceleration takes only 2.5 seconds.
Its body consists of a carbon-fibre monocoque, with CFRP front subframe, exterior panels and crumple zones. Likewise the major supsension components and even the wheel rims. What’s not CFRP, such as the subframe, engine mountings and rear suspension, is aluminium.
The bodywork is finished in a new, matt-shimmer clear coat, meaning that the CFRP structure can be seen throughout. Yet the Sesto Elemento is not black; during the final stage of production the carbon-fibre panels receive a newly developed and patented coat of fine crystals with a red shimmer.
For the interior, Lamborghini has ditched the conventional seat frame, with the contours of the composite “tub” defining the shape of the cabin and seats in the manner of contemporary racing cars. The instruments and facia also follow a minimalist theme.
“The Sesto Elemento shows how the future of the super sports car can look – extreme lightweight engineering, combined with extreme performance results in extreme driving fun,” said Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “Systematic lightweight engineering is crucial for future super sports cars: for the most dynamic performance, as well as for low emissions. We will apply this technological advantage right across our model range. Every future Lamborghini will be touched by the spirit of the Sesto Elemento.”

Lamborghini Super Trofeo


Lamborghini is creating a single make race series. The automaker will be showcasing the competition specification Gallardo LP560-4 or the Super Trofeo. Each of the races will feature 30 cars that will be driven by private owners, dealer teams, and a single “celebrity driver” that is being sponsored by Lamborghini.

The Trofeo weighs 2866 pounds and is equipped with all of the necessary safety equipment which include; ABS brakes and wheels, race-specific chassis adjustments, Pirelli slicks, aero tweaks, and new instrumentation.

Under the hood is a 5.2 liter direct-injected V10 engine that can push out 570 horsepower through Lamborghini’s six-speed sequential gearbox. The buy-in fee for anyone who is interested is €200,000. Each race offers trackside support and parts sales. It all begins next year in May at Silverstone.


Street Legal Murcielago R-GT Racer From Reiter


Sometimes we get to see the perks of engineering used on cars in motorsports being used on a few everyday road supercars. Reiter Engineering is a factory backed motorsports company that will compete during the FIA GT1 and GT3. They recently revealed a street legal version of the Murcielago R-GT racer during the Essen Motor Show.

This supercar will feature some of the best in race-oriented modifications that will include carbon fiber front spoilers and rear wings as well as upgraded brakes, suspension components, and OZ racing wheels. The company also added on a brand new rear fascia and was able to move the exhaust system up to the rear deck lid.

There is only one model that was made. For the right amount of money you can have it for yourself – but you might have to fight for it. If you don’t want the whole thing you can always purchase the special components separate.

Lamborghini Gallardo by BF-performance



Swiss tuners BF Performance have completed work on a new tuning kit for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Called the GT600, their package can be used on either the coupe or the Spyder.

The company says their inspiration was driven by their perception that "the Gallardo is too innocent and neither dynamic nor individual enough." To that end, they designed a set of aerodynamics that gives the car an even more aggressive look, while cutting down on weight.

New body parts are made entirely of carbon fiber, and include new side skirts, rear diffuser, and a rear wing. A set of wing doors is also a part of the package.

BF Performance claims that they have tuned the engine of the Gallardo, though they provide no specifications. They do say that, between the mods and the 43 kg reduced weight, their GT600 has better acceleration than the LP640-4 SV. Carbon-ceramic brakes were used to better control speed.

Inside, the company installed five-point belts and sport seats. Carbon was used on the handles, vents, switch casings, and steering wheel to further reduce weight. A rollover cage was also fitted to better protect passengers.

The BF Performance GT600 is now available for order. The company says they can reconfigure the car from a four-wheel drive to a rear-wheel drive, if desired.


Lamborghini Countach Made of Steel Rods



When artist and designer Benedict Radcliffe was a child he would wander around the paddocks of racetracks and clubs, finding himself increasingly fascinated with Lamborghini. It is a fascination that continues to this day.

It is the reason Radcliffe decided to make the Lamborghini Countach his second full-scale wireframe project. "With the Lamborghini I made it because I just knew the wireframe technique would suit it and it is the most iconic supercar of all time," Radcliffe told

"I had to make it to get it out of my system."

Dubbed the "Koenig Countach," the artist used welded 10mm steel rods to form the vehicle. Once completed, the intricate piece was painted in flourescent orange. Radcliffe says the color is equally as "uncompromising" as the car itself.

Koenig Countach was completed in 2008, and is currently on display at the Classic Car Club on London's famed old Street. The installation is also available for purchase.

The mid-engined Lamborghini Countach was assembled from 1974 to 1990 with 4.0-, 5.0-, and 5.2-liter V12 engines. Nearly 2,050 units were produced over the car's 16 years in production.


Lamborghini Opens New Composites Lab at the University of Washington



With an eye towards improving its breed of exotic supercars, Automobili Lamborghini is partnering with the University of Washington to underwrite a new Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory on the school's campus in Seattle. The ACSL will be responsible for helping the Italian automaker develop ever greater expertise in working with carbon fiber and other lightweight composite materials that will lead to creating even stronger and lighter vehicles. In making the ACSL announcement, Lamborghini CEO and president Stephan Winkelmann reaffirmed that his company "remains committed to investing in its future, and advancing carbon fiber composite technologies is the key to achieving many our goals. As for the choice of its location and partner, Winkelmann went on to note that "Lamborghini has long been influenced by cutting edge aerospace technology, and that the University of Washington's collaboration with The Boeing Company and the Federal Aviation Administration is the complementary fit to furthering our research and development programs that will continue to set the benchmark in carbon fiber technology."

While the establishment of the ACSL marks the formal acknowledgement of the involvement between the University of Washington and Lamborghini, the two have been working together on various projects for the past two years. According to AACSL director Paolo Feraboli, a UW assistant professor of aeronautics and astronautics, "Composites are no longer the future, they are the present of structural materials for anything that's high-performance, whether it's aerospace or golf clubs or sports cars. Monolithic materials like aluminum just won't cut it anymore."

The Lamborghini Countach


The Lamborghini Countach was a mid-engined sports car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1974 to 1989. Its design both pioneered and popularized the form of corner angles were so popular in many high performance cars sport. The cabin "before" design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment from the front to accommodate a larger engine, was also popularized by the Countach.In 2004, Sports Car International named this car number three on the list of top sports cars of the 1970s, and was listed as number ten on their list of top sports cars in 1980.The Countach word (pronounced [kuntɑʃ] (President Icon.svg listen)) is an exclamation of astonishment in the local Piedmontese language - generally used by men on seeing an extremely beautiful woman. [1] The term is often regarded as equivalent to an excited obscenity in English. It may also be considered the verbal equivalent of a wolf-whistle. [Edit]The Countach name stuck when Nuccio Bertone first saw "Project 112" in his studio. The prototype was presented to the world at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. Most previous Lamborghini names were associated with bulls and bullfighting. StylingA Lamborghini Countach LP500 from above to show its futuristic style.The Countach was designed by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio, the same designer and studio that designed the Miura. Gandini was then a young designer inexperienced, not very experienced in practice, the ergonomics of the car design, but at the same time unhindered by them. He produced a design quite striking. The Countach shape was wide and low (42.1 inches), but not very long. Angle and the corner of her body shape was made almost entirely of flat, trapezoidal panels. There were curves, notably the smoothly coke in bottle wing line, but the overall appearance was sharp.Doors, a Countach trademark, were pierced with scissors doors: hinged front with horizontal hinges, so that the doors lifted and tilted forward. It was partly for style, but equally because the width of the car to make conventional doors impossible to use in a space, even slightly reduced. Care needed to be taken, whether by opening the doors to a low roof. (With the poor visibility behind the car and off thresholds, which led to drivers adopting a method of reversing the car for parking by opening the door, sitting on the sill and reversing while looking over the rear of the car from outside.)The style of the prototype was progressively enhanced or cluttered (depending on his point of view) by changing the car to improve its performance, handling, tractability, and ability to meet the requirements. It started with the first production model, which included several vents which were found to be necessary to cool the engine adequately. These include the iconic NACA duct on the door and the rear wing on each side of the car. The car design changes ended with a large engine vent directly behind the driver, reducing the rear view. Subsequent additions, including fender flares, spoilers, carburetor covers, and bumpers, progressively changed the aesthetic value of the car.The appearance of the Countach and visual impression caused it to become a design icon ideal for almost everyone except automotive engineers.

Success for the super sports car from Sant’ Agata Production of the Murciélago reaches the 2,000 unit mark


The Murciélago, which was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2001 as the first
model in the new era of Lamborghini, has emphatically demonstrated the strength of its
position in the super sports car segment. In April, the 2,000th car left the production
line in Sant’Agata.

The V12-powered icon from Lamborghini has therefore also reached a new sales landmark. In November of last year, the Gallardo became the most-sold model in the history of the company with the production of the 3,000th unit.

The success of the Murciélago was celebrated by production staff in front of the Lamborghini Museum together with the President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, and the Head of Production, Klaus-Peter Körner.

The recent Geneva Motor Show saw the presentation of the new Murciélago Coupé
which, compared to its predecessor, features a number of significant modifications to its bodywork and mechanics making it even more aggressive and powerful.

Even the name of the new model, the Murciélago LP640, is new: the code LP640 refers to the position of the engine - longitudinale posteriore - and its maximum output of 640 hp. This gives it breathtaking performance including a top speed of 340 km/h and a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 3.4 seconds.

The Murciélago Coupé LP640 will be available from the summer, alongside three other models in the Lamborghini line-up: the Murciélago Roadster and the 10-cylinder, 5-litre, 520 bhp Gallardo and Gallardo Spyder. The market introduction of the Gallardo Spyder begins in the next few days.
