One of his prized pieces is this Lamborghini Miura. Speaking to Petrolicious, Varni says of his Miura: “It’s highly collectable, it’s exciting, because it’s unusual, […]

Lamborghini has shown with its outrageous Aventador LP 750-4 SV that you don’t need a tricked up über hybrid to break seven minutes at the Ring. You just need a 750hp normally aspirated 6.5 litre V12. Some pointers to note, the indicated peak speed at Schwedenkreuz was 297km/h, a staggering a 285km/h down the Fuchsröhre […]
Take the sophisticated power of a BMW i8 and a Lamborghini Huracan and see how they go against the brawn of a Ford Mustang and a Dodge SRT Hellcat. Imagine you’re doing this and imagine that you’ve got four days and 1300 miles to work out what’s what. Then imagine you’ve got to publish a […]
In 2014, for the first time, the Volkswagen Group has achieved 10 million sales in a calendar year. Across the group of companies a 4.2% increase in sales for the year resulted in 10.14 million vehicles being sold. Just 10 years ago the Group was shifting around 5 million units per year.

You’re looking at a 1970 Lamborghini Miura. It’s one of the most beautiful cars ever to grace the earth. And this one, chassis #4413, could be yours if you’ve got a lazy US$1.5 million burning a hole in your pocket. The car featured here is Lot 113 in the upcoming Gooding & Company auction to […]
The Ferrari 458 Italia is a pretty quick car, right. In a straight out drag race there’s not many cars that can beat it. Surely a miserly four-door Tesla Model S can’t do it? Well, off the line, yes, it can. And by some margin. This is thanks to the Tesla’s near-instant torque and all-wheel […]
First it was Ferrari, now it is Lamborghini who has ruffled the feathers of Chris Harris. In the first post-announcement edition of his weekly column over at Jalopnik he has taken aim at Lambo—in particular the Aventador—fired and made sure he’s got the attention he needs to grab eyeballs: Lamborghini has lost the plot. It […]
As the Paris Motor Show draws near Lamborghini has sent out this invitation to the world’s media. It doesn’t give too much away, obviously, but perhaps we are about to see a new four-seat concept that would take on the likes of the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide. The key difference here being […]
As expected Lamborghini literally took the cover off its new Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo in California on the weekend. As its name suggests the race version of the Huracan produces 620hp and all of it is sent to the rear wheels. It tips the scales at 1270kg (2800lbs) and we think it would be a […]
The official reveal for the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo is expected to take place later today as part of the increasingly important Monterey Car Week. For now here’s a brief amateur teaser video. Thanks to Carspotter Jeroen for capturing the footage and making it available to share.
Here’s a rumour from GoAuto that has grabbed our interest, according to its report Volkswagen Group is considering a name change to Auto Union. A possible theory for the change would be to establish a greater sense of independence for each of the brands under Volkswagen’s control, by removing the Volkswagen name from the umbrella […]
What’s better than seeing and hearing one Lamborghini Huracán on a race track? Hearing six of them. Yes, six! Check out the video after the break to see if you agree. There’s 60 cylinders and 31.2 litres of capacity pumping out a staggering 3660hp (2688kW), so we’re pretty confident you’ll like what you see. [Source: […]
It’s no use pretending, that I undertsand why Lamborghini Australia asked journos not to report on a flaming Aventador at a recent event held at Phillip Island. According to Drive.com.au the LP700-4 had completed many laps of the picturesque circuit as part of a media demonstration, which was not attended by Drive. Late in the […]
Here’s a video to make your eyes bleed. It involves a Lamborghini Aventador, a Mazda2 and an intersection on a London street. The end result could have been worse, but it’s still a shame to see. [Source: Road & Track]
