It was so hot in Arizona an area man was able to cook steaks in the street while simultaneously baking cookies on the dashboard of his Lamborghini.
Hey car-loving Onanists! I have exciting news: finally, you can combine your love for cars with your love for self-love, and have it pay off, bigtime. That’s because wank-fodder giant YouPorn is running a contest where you can design a wrap for their Lamborghini, and win a trip to London.
All 40 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 hypercars have already been sold, but the car made its first U.S. appearance June 11th at Los Angeles’ the Petersen Auto Museum and to celebrate, some of the hottest supercars in the city showed up and took over the parking garage.
This week London police reportedly pulled over a Lamborghini Huracan, impounded it on the basis of being uninsured despite the owner’s pleas to the contrary, and proceeded to whip it around town at double the speed limit.
CBS news legend and 60 Minutes star Morley Safer died today at age 84, only a week after he retired from the show, reports USA Today. Safer filed more than 900 reports in his 46 years as 60 Minutes’ longest-running correspondent, one of which was this delightful visit to the Lamborghini factory in Italy.
Swedish professional skier Jon Olsson often brings insane cars into his natural environment and, well, does insane stuff with them. He recently tore up a few ski slopes on the way to the top of a glacier in his Lamborghini Murcielago, ski raced down it, and made us all remember just how boring our own lives are.
Days ago, car-spotting YouTuber Gordon Cheng found himself in a Tokyo parking garage. It turned out to be a cave of wonders, full of the absolute most outrageously modified Lamborghinis I’ve ever seen.
Happy 100th birthday to Ferruccio Lamborghini—the man who set out to build the ultimate grand tourer after a poor customer service experience with Enzo Ferrari.
Charli XCX’s “Vroom Vroom” is a typically delectable pop number, and as always the video delivers. Decked out in a latex bodysuit that resembles a high gloss paint job on a sports car, she sings and semi-raps about how no one can touch her in this pop world—cause baby, she’s much too fast.
GoPro’s latest miracle of the NoseCam brings us a lap around Sebring thanks to a camera stuffed inside Change Racing driver Corey Lewis’ helmet. I have to admit: this looks like a genuinely nice place to sit. The cabin is neatly organized, and the audio is beyond fantastic. Sit back and enjoy a lap of Lambo bliss.
Two turbos on the V10 now dialed to produce about 1,800 horsepower at the wheels, a sequential gearbox and Dodson’s 10 plate clutch. Add drag tires, and what you get is a Huracan running the 1/4 miles in the sevens.
Lamborghini’s first Miura SV, the Spinto Veloce prototype built for the Geneva Motor Show, is a gorgeous one-off. And now you can finally see just like the audience did back in 1971.
Wider means faster. Possibly.
Any production that opens with the sentence, “Granny’s got the Lambo today, granny’s got the Lambo” is bound to be a good one. Thankfully, this video lived up to that standard.
The Lamborghini Centenario is great. For starters, it’s got a 770 horsepower naturally aspirated V12. It’s also telling us that the Aventador’s successor will have four-wheel steering, and while Ferruccio Lamborghini would never care for its design, it’s actually the perfect tribute to Stephan Winkelmann’s triumphant…
It’s not every day that Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini turns 100. (Yes, he’s dead, and still dead, I think.) So Lamborghini had to do something special in celebration, and “special” for them means “more insane than usual.” The Lamborghini Centenario does not disappoint.
And the Lamborghini Centenario gets that insane power output without cheating, aka turbochargers or a blower. This V12 is all motor, baby, and it puts out 770 horsepower—enough to send the car from zero to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Zounds!
Lamborghini is planning a century of great-designed supercars birthday present for the company founder, and we thought we saw it today! But it was actually just a render. But it was pretty accurate render based on patent images we saw earlier, and it’s sort of shit.
The $1.2 million Lamborghini Centenario is supposed to be a 100-year birthday present to the company’s founder. I don’t know how happy Ferruccio would be with this one. [Update: it’s just a render.]
We’re huge “fans” of Mansory here at Jalopnik, but our company bank account is unfortunately not as huge as prominent London billionaire James Stunt’s. That’s why he has a 830 horsepower Mansory Aventador J.S.1 Edition, and we don’t.
