    What do we have here?

    The new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Or, what happens when you lock a Huracán in a cage, feed it raw meat and poke it with a pointy stick. You know the drill: like the Gallardo Superleggera before it, this is the harder, faster, stickier and more track-focused version of Lambo’s baby supercar designed to monster race tracks, but retain a whiff of usability on public roads. If Lambo had a GT3 badge, this would be wearing it.

    Yes, we have driven it already, but that was an early prototype wrapped in black and white sticky tape and we were limited to a few laps of the track. This is the finished article, and while we have the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (Lamborghini prefer to call it Imola for some reason?) at our disposal once again, we’ll also be braving the Italian highways.

    Let’s talk horsepower.

    Good call. The engine is still a naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre [...]

    Automobili Lamborghini has significantly expanded its prototype and pre-series vehicle development areas, as part of the ongoing production facility growth in readiness for its Super SUV, the Urus.  The existing building has been extended from 5.000 m2 to 7.000 m2.

    A new acoustic test room, part of the overall expansion, was officially inaugurated with the attendance of Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member for Research and Development of Automobili Lamborghini.

    The sound of a Lamborghini represents one of the most emotive experiences attached to the super sports car marque. The acoustic test room, which has been realized according to the latest technical standards, allows adjustment of particular sound sensations in order to create the typical Lamborghini driving experience, involving all the senses.

    In line with Lamborghini’s continual [...]

    Incredible, this is how we would describe this past weekend. Natural talent and pure adrenaline came forth in all of our drivers and we could not have asked for a better outcome.

    This event started late morning on Sunday, May 28th with a majority of our drivers convoying together from the Lower Mainland up to beautiful Osoyoos. With a quick pit-stop in Princeton, the crew traveled further and arrived, mid-afternoon, to the spectacular Spirit Ridge resort. After freshening up and relaxing after a long drive, the group got together in a private banquet hall for a filling, BBQ-style dinner and an itinerary refresh by our crew of skilled instructors.

    Early Monday morning came quickly, and after breakfast our group gathered together and travelled, convoy-style, to Oliver, BC – this is where the challenging Area 27 track is situated. After an informative sit-down session with our instructors and the on-site flag team, we were ready to hit [...]
