The alleged owner of the Lamborghini Aventador that caught on fire earlier today posted this pic of himself posing in front of it as a firefighter hoses it off.
We received the following response from TeamSalamone, the subject of our previous story — the world's most stereotypical Lamborghini owner. Here is the letter, in its entirety:
He owns a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador with the license plate "WINNING." He calls his girlfriend "Concubine." He loves strippers. He lives in Long Island. He is a divorce attorney. He knows Ice-T.
This is the Lamborghini Aventador J (not Unica). It's a very, very open variation of the Aventador. The J (the appended letter is taken from the "Appendix J" FIA motorsport rules that describes the various classes of cars) uses the the 12-cylinder version Lamborghini Aventador flagship as its base. What makes it truly…
This is the most expensive model car in the world, at least it will be when it sells this month at auction in New York. It's a 1/8th scale model of a Lamborghini Aventador built with gold, platinum, carbon fiber and diamonds by Robert Guelpen, a German car model specialist.
For most normal 22 year old's purchasing a $390,000 Lamborghini Aventador is little more than a nice dream. For Saudi Arabian student Dhiaa Al-Essa Lamborghini Aventador ownership recently became a reality.
You think your gal has champagne taste? Jon Olsson, the Swedish professional skier and all-around extreme athlete, has just procured a second Lamborghini — this one's a Gallardo — to drive across Europe between ski events.
We now know the name of the first American to take delivery of a new Lamborghini Aventador: Bruce Wayne. Those rich Gotham industrialists with troubled pasts and spelunking hobbies always get the best toys.
Today, I stand to rend my garments and shout "Scusi! Scusi" to the world's owners of Lamborghini Aventadors for accusing one of their number of smashing their carbon-fiber treasure into a fence post. I should have known it was a journalist at the wheel.
The inhabitants of the British Isles have been herding for millennia, yet the Brit organizers of this summer's Wilton House event needed a little help to organize the 150 supercars attending the gathering into a proper group. Where's a good sheepdog when you need one?
From now on, I'm starting a countdown clock from the launch of a new supercar to its first crash. I'm actually surprised it took this long to see how well the Lamborghini Aventador would survive an impact with a few poles.
We all know that there is tremendous beauty in manufacturing. But "ultimate factory" assembly lines may show off industrial might at its mightiness, there's also tremendous beauty in small run manufacturing. We saw it in our amazing tour of Ford's Flat Rock plant where the Boss 302S Mustang is built. Now we see it…
Remember the Chinese barber who built a front-engined Lamborghini Aventador replica out of a car Americans know as the Infiniti I30? Cops confiscated it. Apparently it didn't look like the "Nissan Cefiero" listed on its papers.
Among the many events related to the Lamborghini Aventador launch was also a display inside the "Chiostro del Bramante," a contemporary art museum located in the historical center of Rome. To get it inside, however, required assembling the raging bull piece-by-glorious-piece.
Lamborghini's new V12 flagship — the Aventador LP 700-4 — is a monumental leap forward from its previous top model, the Múrcielago. It's lighter, faster, more powerful, easier to drive and still edgy as hell. Is it the world's best value for supercar money?
