Lamborghini, it would be fair to assume, has zero interest in making a rat rod. Yet, as an independent design study, the Lamborghini Rat Rod looks magnificent. A concept by Pawel Wisniewski and Jans Slapins, the rendering imagines the appearance of a classic rat rod with modern influence of the Lamborghini design language.
Lamborghini has unveiled the successor to the Gallardo, and it has shown up in the form of Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4. The new supercar has big shoes to fill, considering the Gallardo is the most sold Lamborghini to date. If a simple glance is to go by, the Huracan looks set to work its job.
Adding company to the Veneno Supercar, Lamborghini has given it a sibling in the form of the Veneno Roadster. Endowed with the same aggressive looks, this one is a mighty beast as well. Power comes from a 750 hp 6.5-liter V12 that takes the roadster from zero to 60mph in just 2.9 seconds, and allows it to go all the way to the top speed of 221 mph. Priced at $4.5 million, the roadster is an extremely limited edition with only nine cars being made.
We are fans of the stunning looks of the Lamborghini Aventador, we’re even more enamored by someone going the impressive route and crafting a supercar entirely out of paper. Seattle based artist Taras Lesko crafted this full scale Lamborghini Aventador using only paper. The paparecraft supercar has been styled in the looks of a police interceptor and christened with the name Aventador A-E2. Frame of the car is built on thick cardboard for support, then given shape with printed sheets of E2 architectural paper (hence the name).
Earlier this year, Lamborghini showed its willingness to depart from conventional car design with the Veneno. Now, it apparently wants to cement the idea with the Egoista. This one though, is a one-off concept made to celebrate 50 years of the marque. The single seater supercar has a silver body with orange rims and accents, plus really sharp and pronounced curves and cuts that are intended to give it a look and feel similar to its inspiration, airplanes and jets.
Lamborghini Aventador is an awesome car, and it is usually a good idea not to mess with the looks of something so beautiful. That wisdom went amiss on a company called Cars for Starts who have unveiled what is thankfully just a concept for a Lamborghini Aventador limousine. It might be a concept, but they do very well intend to make it real. The company is offering 12 months of free advertising to anyone who sponsors the project, plus a representation in naming the Lambo Limo.
Lamborghini’s cars have always looked wonderful. Lately though, they seem to be going the extra step to get sexier, sometimes going past the convention. The Aventador is one sexy car, and this new offering the Veneno is pretty attractive, though with a somewhat different outlook than the comparatively widely available Aventador. We say comparatively because the Veneno is an extremely limited edition supercar, with only three instances available.
Slated to make a debut at the Beijing Auto Show, Lamborghini Urus SUV concept dropped its rendered face a bit earlier than expected. The Lamborghini SUV is expected to share the same platform as the new Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7, although it will be much lighter and faster than the competition. Urus could make a production debut as early as 2015. Urus gets its power from a 5.2-l V10 that produces about 600hp.
Concepts generally have the leeway of going past the accepted and the pragmatic to don the feathers of imagination and take a big leap. So concept cars can be really amazing; an idea that stands true for nearly all marques. Things get a bit different when you’re dealing with a Lamborghini though. The raging bull has such amazing cars that you really have to push the boundaries of imagination.
