In the ultimate definition of “RARE”, Lamborghini will only produce 3 Veneno’s in all and they’re already sold out to the tune of $4 million dollars each.
We don´t feature concept vehicles very often, only if we come across something truly spectacular. Today we feature the Lamborghini Perdigon Concept by Ondrej Jirec, a final year Transport Design student at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California. The car is inspired by several jet fighters, the most visible of those cues is the large air intake mounted just below the windscreen. (Via…)
First debuting in 1971, Lamborghini‘s famed Countach quickly became every red-blooded male’s dream car upon its release. Jim Chan happened to be one of those guys growing up but he managed to turn his fantasy into reality when he finally acquired a pristine example. The owner of Axis Wheels, producer of some of the finest rims around, Chan is a petrol-head through and through so it comes as no surprise then that he gladly met up with the crew from Petrolicious to talk about his newly acquired supercar and show off its beautiful angular bodywork. Honest in his appraisal of the car, Jim waxes lyrical about the beauty of the car before going on to mention its complete lack of ergonomics and everyday usability. That being said, the car has to be one of the most beautiful ever produced and Chan’s affection for the car is contagious. Check the video for a fantastically well shot tribute to a legendary vehicle and enjoy the soundtrack which is heavy on the V-12 notes. (Via…)
The most expensive and elegant Lamborghini is coming to the selected showrooms in late 2011. The Sesto Elemento concept, which turned heads at the Paris Motor Show late last year, is now being reported to be in the advanced stages of its development. If the sources are to be believed, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will see a limited production run of no more than 20 units, priced around €2 million (about $2.8 million).
Anyway, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann is talking about a 50-50 chance of the Sesto Elemento going into production. The supercar weighs in at a mere 2,202 pounds, thanks to the use of composite materials, from the carbon fiber monocoque body shell to the suspension parts made of forged carbon fiber. A 5.2-liter V10 engine taken from the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera that will deliver 570hp will power the Sesto Elemento. It will hit 0-62 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
The reports further suggest that the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is destined for the track only. The €2 million price tag seems outrageous, but then Lamborghini already has the record of selling all 35 Reventons, which cost €1 million each, within a week after the announcement. Even if the Sesto Elemento doesn’t meet realism, it has given us a glimpse of what we can expect from Lamborghini in the future. (Via…)
It’s not common place for brands in other industries collaborating with automakers to create a line of products that have been co-branded with their partners. You could even say that Ferrari has made this a lucrative form of business, especially with laptops and mobile phones in the form of their partnership with Acer.
Another Italian supercar maker that has dived into the computer business is Lamborghini. Over the years, the Raging Bull has collaborated with computer company Asus to build a set of laptop models that not only rivals the Ferrari/Acer partnership, but also gives Lambo aficionados another way to support their favorite automotive brand without having to buy their ridiculously expensive supercars.
Recently, the Lamborghini/Asus partnership revealed the latest fruit of their collaboration: the VX7 gaming laptop. Already in its seventh generation, the VX7 was designed using the Murcielago as its inspiration. The laptop features a clamshell lid with the iconic ’Toro’ logo; it’s got leather-lined palm-rests; heck, it even has a taillight-configuration on the back of the computer.
Apart from all the Lamborghini details on the laptop, its specs also give justice to its designation as a gaming laptop. It’s got a 2.0-GHz Intel Core processor with 16GB of RAM. It also has a Blu-Ray combo drive and an enormous storage space of 1.5 terrabytes that can be stored through a dual hard-drive configuration. The VX7 is available with a choice of two colors – Orange or Carbon Fiber – at a price tag befitting of Lamborghini’s status. That’s right, if you have a remote interest in this bad boy, you’re going to have to fork over €1,995, which is about $2,800 based on current exchange rates.
Nobody ever said Lamborghini products came cheap. Even if it’s just a laptop. (Via...)
