The most important Lamborghini that never was

This is not a cutaway illustration. It’s the Marzal, the most important Lamborghini that never was. The love child of 50 square feet of glass and half a Miura engine, it was the epitome of Lamborghini’s pre-supercar design philosophy. Last month, the only one made was sold for $2.1 million. » 6/16/11 10:30am 6/16/11 10:30am

The Lamborghini-Engined Gullwing Minivan

A 455-hp V-12 from the Countach Quattrovalvole? A pair of gullwing doors? Minivans may be more boring than watching paint dry, but every rule has an exception. This is it. » 6/14/10 2:30pm 6/14/10 2:30pm

How The Stile Bertone Mantide Got Angular Rear Wheelarches

When Jason Castriota left Pininfarina for Bertone, it was like switching to Coke after a lifetime of Pepsi. Let’s examine a design element he’s started using that’s alien to Pininfarina but essential to Bertone. » 5/07/09 2:30pm 5/07/09 2:30pm

Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback Touring: The Ultimate Station…

The Ferrari 599 GTB seats only two, the 612 Scaglietti is big—but what if you have kids, dogs and elephant guns to carry? Enter the custom-built Quattroporte Bellagio, certainly not your daddy's station wagon. » 5/06/09 4:30pm 5/06/09 4:30pm

Four-Door Lamborghini Estoque Bites the Dust

Lamborghini's canceled plans to build the Estoque, the ungainly four-door concept sedan named after a bull-fighting sword first shown last fall at the Paris Motor Show. » 3/23/09 8:30am 3/23/09 8:30am

PCH, Don't Settle For Imitation Lambos Edition: Wrecked Murcielago or…

Welcome to Project Car Hell, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! Yesterday, the Warsaw Pact Hell Truck Projects ran just about neck and neck, with the trio of Romanian AROs beating the Soviet GAZ-69 in a 51:49 split.

PCH, You Can Afford A Lamborghini Edition: 1970 or 1971 Espada?

Fiero-based Fierraris and Fieroborghinis are great (though the vast majority of you went with the Zimmer Quicksilver over the Fierrari in the poll), but a realistic-looking, V8-equipped Fieroborghini can run you over 20 grand. If only you could get a real Lamborghini for that kind of money... ah, but that's just… » 5/27/08 5:20pm 5/27/08 5:20pm

Careful, Don't Dent The Espada With The Kia's Door!

After getting a Lamborghini Espada for yesterday's Project Car Hell, I remembered this Espada we photographed in the parking lot at the Monterey Historics last summer. We were driving a plush Sorento, provided by the nice folks at Kia, and look what rumbled up and parked next to us!

PCH, Dream Big Edition: Lamborghini Espada or Cord 810?

Our last Choose Your Eternity poll showed us that a rustbucket BMW 2002 beats a fossilized Nissan 300ZX, albeit by a fairly narrow margin. And that's good to know, though such knowledge won't be applicable to the cars our friend Mike sent in to us.

In Russia, Devil Runs With YOU!

Allegedly, this modified Lada 2108 is supposed to look like a Diablo, but to us, it carries a distinctly Espada vibe. Or maybe that of an Islero. Whatever the case, it's yet another wonderful depiction as to what can happen to a man when armed only with a Lada, too much time on his hands, a set of tools from Gorky's… » 8/07/07 2:30pm 8/07/07 2:30pm

Lambo Boss: No Retro Cars, Ever

Lamborghini's Germanic capo di tutti cappi has spoken: There will be no retro-themed cars from Sant'Agata, period. That means no Miura based on the historical concept shown in Detroit this past year (pictured) no Espada, speculated seven ways from Tuesday morning on these and other pages, and no LM002 redux.

According to our buddy Chris Paukert, formerly of Autoblog, who's now posting for Winding Road, AutoExpress reports Lambo's scuttled plans to build successors to its Espada GT and super-bad LM002 SUV (pictured) of the last millennium.

Lamborghini Clarifies New Product Gossip

Eurocar Blog translates Dutch magazine Telegraaf so we don't have to. According to an interview with Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, the company has no plans to build a GT 2+2, which rumor mongers (like us) have considered as a new version of the Espada of the 1970s, or a new Q7-based SUV — both of which many… » 12/21/05 8:42am 12/21/05 8:42am

Lamborghini (Still) Considering New Models

The boys from Sant'Agata are raiding their Ingolstadt brethren's parts department to build two new sports cars, one of which will be in the Ferrari Enzo's realm.
