What always weirds me out about modern car design is that you can have a completely futuristic car body, and then you lift the hood and the engine still looks like it came out of the 19th century.
In 1967, British newspaper The Daily Telegraph commissioned a show car from Bertone built on a widened Jaguar E-Type 2+2 chassis. It's an interesting concept, but what would Jalopnik commission today?
The Lamborghini Espada remains one of the coolest cars ever made. Why? Because it was a grand-tourer with room for four adults behind its supercar-grade V12 plucked from the Miura. Also, it had bizarre shooting brake/liftback styling. Is any car built today weird enough to match it?
I'm sure the 1970 Paris Motor Show was worth visiting for all the French goodness it had to offer, but the most desirable piece of brilliance must have been the Espada show car, specially prepared for the event by Bertone.
This latest edition of the Evo Diaries video series starts in exactly the right way: with the Lamborghini Espada's engine at full roar in a tunnel. If you're having a dull afternoon, that sound will wake you up better than any coffee.
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.
Namesake for not only the eponymous 1966 supercar but most Lamborghinis, noted by Hemingway and countless dead matadors, these are the cunning, ferocious Miura bulls of Andalusia.
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.
Bruce Wayne has shown us it's possible to cruise with more than a single companion in a two-seater Lamborghini. Perhaps. But there is a more elegant way—worthy of both superheroes and mere mortals.
Well into the second century of the automobile, new vehicles can't help but be a portmanteau of earlier designs. Even those that believe they're a new segment. Let’s see some of the recently-revealed Acura ZDX’s forefathers.
In 1969, barely six years after its founding, a young Hungarian engineering student found himself at the Lamborghini factory. Presented here for the first time are his photographs of Miuras, Espadas and huge V12’s.
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.
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.
You don’t necessarily have to consign yourself to minivan hell when you have kids. Lamborghinis and Ferraris make for lovely ways to transport a growing family. Here’s how.
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. Today… well, after looking at all the …
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…
