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]

We already know what the new 610hp Lamborghini Huracan looks like, but in case we’ve forgotten Sant’Agata’s latest hypercar hasn’t actually made its public debut yet this video teaser has been sent to remind us. The good news is you only have to wait until 4 March before you can shake the trees and earth […]
Here’s your pick of photos from today’s qualifying for the 2014 Bathurst 12 Hour race. We start with this great image above of the MARC Focus GTC. What the hell is a Focus GTC you ask? There’s three of them entered in the race and they’re a purpose-built creations powered by a 500hp 5.0 litre […]
