Automobili Lamborghini and MIT teamed up to envision a pure-electric, 4WD hypercar concept which would use supercapacitor tech to increase power density and performance, and a carbon fiber structure made using nanotech to monitor the car for cracks and damage.
Wedge on wheels. Industrial designer Ken Okuyama’s Kode 0 was inspired by the Lancia Stratos Zero, the Lamborghini Countach and other futuristic cars from the 1970’s. Based on a Lamborghini Aventador, its compact and sharp body was made entirely out of carbon fiber.
The Huracán Performante packs Lambo’s most powerful V10, capable of producing up to 640hp. Its carbon fiber and aluminum body makes it 88lb lighter than the standard version, while the active aerodynamic system adjusts the front and rear spoilers for grip or speed.
The latest Lambo V12 monster sees big upgrades to its aerodynamics and suspension, and most notably the addition of 4-wheel steering. Its dozen cylinders pump out 740 horses, launching the yellow beast to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 217 mph.
The latest Lambo not only drops its top, but sends 100% of its power to the rear wheels, allowing for drifting fun and making up for any weight gained by the convertible structure. Its V10 makes 580 hp, launching this bad boy to 62mph in 3.6s, with a top speed of 198 mph.
DragTimes presents a quarter-mile drag race between two cars coming from opposite ends and meeting in the middle. In the red corner, we have a comfortable and mild-mannered entry level supercar. In the blue corner is a family sedan, albeit the world’s quickest one.
Freeskier and car enthusiast Jon Olsson outfitted his Lamborghini with studded tires and proceeded to drive it to the summit at Norway’s Fonna Glacier Ski Resort. It’s not the most practical way to traverse the snow and ice, but it might just be the most entertaining.
Gumball 3000 vets Team Galag hired Caresto to turn a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560 into the TGX, an amazing real life version of the Batmobile from Batman: Arkham Knight. Its body is made of carbon fiber panels and it’s actually comfortable and easy to drive.
If we said “Lamborghini driver,” there’s probably an image that pops into your head – and it’s not a couple of little old ladies. Donut Media broke down that stereotype when it put Peggy and Audrey behind the wheel of a Street Standard Murcielago. Time to tear rubber!
When we think of picking a car to drive in the snow, a Lamborghini isn’t exactly our first choice. But The Stradman’s video shows us just how much fun can be had in the winter with his all-wheel driver Gallardo, as he makes some delicious powdered donuts with his supercar.
Lamborghini’s 610hp V10 Huracán LP 610-4 drops its top, letting you air dry your freshly coiffed hairdo at 201 mph. Its electric cloth top can be opened and closed while in motion, and its carbon fiber and aluminum chassis is much stiffer than the Gallardo Spyder’s.
