    The Lamborghini Aventador is one of a dying breed of big displacement, big cylinder engines. But it’s not dead yet. Car and Driver reports that the V12 will return with the Aventador’s successor, albeit with the addition of an electric motor. Loathers of electrification may be disappointed to...

    It may not seem like a very interesting test, but keep in mind that when CarWow raced the Aventador SV against the Huracan Performante, the smaller V10 car won. So, even though it’s the baby in the lineup, it’s exceedingly fast. However, despite doing everything in its power to keep up, the...

    The mad men and women at Squadra Corse, Lamborghini’s racing division, are testing something spectacular. The open-top car comes with bright orange camouflage wearing a warning on the doors. Attenzione macchina veloce aperta, which means attention, fast open car in Italian. Now that might be...

    The question is more interesting than you’d think. That’s largely down to these car’s similarity in the quarter-mile but also to the vast gulf in pricing. Making 750 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque, the Aventador has the measure of the tuned RS7 when it comes to power (700 hp) but not torque. Thanks...

    If there's one thing Lamborghini is good at it's making track day specials so exotic they may as well be from Mars. And while we'll never get to drive them, and they'll probably never actually get used on the track, that's not going to stop us from leaving a puddle of drool on our keyboards...

    Normally when we write these posts, it’s because we’ve found pictures of test car covered in camouflage. But with the SCV12, that’s boring because Lamborghini already sent us those. Instead, we’ve found pictures of the car with less on it. These detailed drawings come to us from the European...

    Lamborghini saw the millions, begging for a cure to their boredom, and it answered. Updating its configurator, you now have a better way while away the hours during this pandemic. You may wonder how much time one can possibly spend on a configurator that includes just three distinct models...

    Lamborghini is issuing a recall on its Lamborghini Aventador SVJ after it was discovered that passengers could get stuck inside. Lamborghini is blaming the problem on the new guy. No, for real. In NHTSA’s description of the defect, they cite a “non-properly trained new operator” who was...

    If you should happen to be flying into Bologna’s Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi, you may look down and see something unexpected on your way to the gate. Among the weird and wonderful airport vehicles, there may be a Lamborghini Huracan helping your plane taxi to its gate. It’s the sixth such...

    Lamborghini appears to be building a new track-only model. The first peek at the car comes via a 30-second teaser ad released to YouTube. Bearing the 63 of the Aventador SVJ’s hottest model—which itself is a reference to year of the company’s founding--rumor has it that the car was developed by...

    So far this year, Lamborghini has sold nearly twice as many vehicles as it had at this point last year. And there’s one massive, ugly reason for that: the Urus. In fact, although Lamborghini’s sales through the first six months of 2019 are 96% higher than they were in 2018, the Urus makes up...

    Lamborghini's legendary test driver, Valentino Balboni, may have retired. But that doesn't mean he's spending his days on the golf course, or playing bridge. Well, ok, maybe he is doing those things, but he's also designing ultra-exclusive exhaust systems for Lamborghini road cars. His first...

    While the manual transmission has been suffering a T.S. Eliot-approved slow, whimpering death, Porsche showed a way forward for those who want a clutch: as an option for rich enthusiasts. According to Lamborghini’s CEO, Stefano Domenicali, though, that won’t work for the raging bull. Speaking...

    Making 770 HP at 8,500 rpm, the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is as much a drop top as it is a litany of impressive figures. 0-62 mph: 2.9 seconds. 0-124 mph: 8.8 seconds. 531 ft-lbs of torque at 6,750 rpm 62-0 mph in 31 meters (101 ft) Top speed 217 mph 2.05 kg per hp. The...

    Lamborghini has talked a lot about electrification over the last few years, remaining careful never to commit to anything. While meager production rates seriously limit the environmental impact of its vehicles, the Italian automaker is nonetheless subject to the same pressure to go green as...

    Developed in conjunction with a well-heeled, unnamed customer, the SC18 is Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s first one-off project. Designed to be as close to a race car as is road legal, the car is ode to Lamborghini’s track work. Based on the Aventador, of course, the SC18 actually takes some...

    Porsche’s stint as king of the Nürburgring is up. Lamborghini has set a new production-car lap record at the famed German circuit.

    Lamborghini is back, teasing the Aventador SVJ yet again, preparing us all for a presumably shocking Nurburgring lap time. This time, though, they've revealed a little bit more about the car. The Italians are promising that the SVJ is "designed to have the best weight to power ratio," in bold...

    Sure you might say that if you had a supercar you’d drive the wheels off of it. That’s just an expression, though, right? Well, if you’re driving a 2015 or 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV, those wheels might come off a little more easily than you’d expect. The National Highway Traffic Safety...
