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 […]

The disappointment of Europe v America

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 […]

It’s lime green, it’s beautiful and you want it!

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 […]

Instant torque’s gonna get you

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 […]

Lamborghini earns the wrath of Harris

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 […]

Is Lamborghini about to make a four-seater?

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.

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 […]

Volkswagen Group tipped to rebrand as Auto Union

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 […]

The hide and seek we play with facts

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.
