I’ve been thinking long and hard about why modern-day supercars just don’t excite me like they used to, and I think part of the reason is that they’re pretty good at being cars most of the time. They do what they’re supposed to, and while that’s fine, it also makes them boring. Unlike the Lamborghini Countach.
I once sat around a table with senior U.S. brass from Audi and was laughed at for asking if the brand would ever introduce a drift mode like many of its rivals. Well now rumors and teases indicate Audi will instead offer an R8 that’s always in drift mode with a rear-wheel drive model. Who’s laughing now?
Ex-Lamborghini boss and wearer of impeccable suits Stephan Winkelmann headed up Audi’s fun division Audi Sport GmbH, formerly known as Quattro, for just a little over a year. Now, it appears that he’s moving again, this time to captain Bugatti. That sounds like... trading up.
Remember that crazy-ass off-roading supercar concept Audi showed off back in 2013? It was called the Nanuk and had a V10 diesel, and was essentially a lifted and toughened R8 or something. Well now the rumor mill claims the concept has been kicked over to Lamborghini to become a real thing in the form of a Huracan—now…
This mini documentary on Miami’s most powerful speedboats is actually pretty interesting and colorful, but the officially-licensed Lamborghini boat “Raging Bull” is, just, good grief.
The wild Lamborghini in its natural habitat is a spectacular and majestic beast. When threatened, though, it can be quite dangerous, often resorting to the traditional Italian Supercar defense of catching on fire. That’s what happened yesterday in Dallas, when a carjacked Lambo burst into flames during a police chase.
The age of coachbuilding may just be making a comeback. Ken Okuyama, the ex-Pininfarina designer who was responsible for the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte, has created one hell of a follow-up to the polarizing Code 57 unveiled at last year’s Monterey Car Week. I got to see it and shoot it.
The 550 Maranello was Ferrari’s answer to the insanity that was the Diablo over at Lamborghini. Where the Diablo zigged, Ferrari zagged, developing a front-engine, clean looking sports car with a beautiful new V12. So what the hell happened to it?
Let’s be clear: it straight up sucks that this guy’s Lamborghini is on fire. Nobody deserves that.
Italy. A country of great food, great culture, and great driving. Well okay, two out of three isn’t so bad. In the five days I spent in Tuscany I fell in love with the country that gave us gelato, bolognese sauce, and of course, some of the best dream cars ever made.
The man in question was Lamborghini’s test driver for 40 years. The car in question is a lovely maroon 1986 Lamborghini Countach QV, built for former Lamborghini CEO Patrick Mimran.
I don’t know why the Lamborghini Diablo had any kind of advertising. The car sells itself. It has the doors. It has the sound. It has the looks. It has a V12 large enough to crush a small home. And yet, advertise it Lamborghini did.
Pour one out for the red Lamborghini Countach that burnt to a crisp this past Thursday in San Francisco. Try as they might, firefighters weren’t able to put out the flames until it was too late. The death knell rings a somber echoing bellow.
If Nürburgring lap times are a thing you care about, then the 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante is something that matters. At the very least, this is notable because it means a fairly conventional 631 horsepower exotic was able to beat the million-dollar hybrid monster that is the Porsche 918 Spyder, and fast…
The idle thoughts of every young driver turns any old industrial part of town into an imagined race track, fully lit sideways in some sports car you can’t afford. Well, here are those dreams made real.
When Stephan Winkelmann, ex-Lamborghini CEO and wearer of impeccable suits, assumed the head of Quattro GmbH early last year, I was incredibly excited. He would be, it seemed, the shot of drama and life-blood Audi so desperately needed in its lineup. But in a new interview, he appears to be most interested in... SUVs?…
Raise your hand if somebody you knew had this exact photo as their Myspace background. Raise both and wave them around if it was your Myspace background. Ain’t no shame in that, especially now.
Here is another Lamborghini. Probably one that will happen very soon. But it’s definitely more than what we’re used to. Much..........more.
Lamborghini isn’t particularly well-known for racing so much as it is for revving loudly in front of nightclubs, so it’s easy to forget that the little company out of Sant’Agata ran a Formula 1 engine program from 1989 to 1993. It was glorious in the way only a Lambo could be.
