Comments Off on The keys to Lamborghini’s future? Speed, style and SUVs
Marco della Cava, CNBC – Lamborghini Urus SUV a key to company plan
Maurizio Reggiani, the director of research and development for storied Italian supercar builder Lamborghini, takes in the knife-edge lines of his latest creation, the $275,000 Huracan Performante. He is pleased.
“This car represents so much of what we are,” says Reggiani, who joined CEO Stefano Domenicali for a breakfast interview with USA TODAY Tuesday. “We are looking to the future.” Urus SUV a key to company plan
The future, these days, seems to be all about self-driving cars designed to completely detach the driver from the transportation experience. Companies ranging from Waymo, Google parent Alphabet’s self-driving car arm, to Ford are touting 2021 as the beginning of a mobility revolution that will impact everything from car sales to the [...]

Comments Off on Lamborghini PoloStorico at Rétromobile 2017
PRESS RELEASE February 8, 2017 lamborghini.com
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 8 February 2017 – Lamborghini PoloStorico participates for the first time at Rétromobile 2017, the international classic car exhibition held in Paris from 8 to 12 February. The Lamborghini 350 GT chassis number 0121, one of the first fifteen examples produced by Automobili Lamborghini and the first 350 GT to be restored by Lamborghini PoloStorico, is on public display for the first time at the PoloStorico stand.
The restoration of the bodywork and interior took 1150 hours, plus 780 additional hours for checking mechanical and electrical functions. These operations brought the car back to its original beauty according to a very precise philosophy of restoration: Lamborghini PoloStorico always strives to maintain the car’s originality as much as possible, and the [...]
A funny thing happened in 2015: Lamborghini suddenly got serious about making its big, 12-cylinder flagship go around a corner, not a traditional strength of such models.
Yes, the Aventador has had racy inboard, pushrod suspension from day one, but like so many previous V-12 Lamborghinis, it was still far better at going fast in a straight line than a curved one. That changed with the Aventador SV and was quickly followed by the Aventador-based Centenario. My fervent hope was that this would be a permanent change in philosophy, and having now experienced the Aventador S, I can happily report the revolution lives.
The Aventador S’ improved handling is primarily a result of a rear steering system that can turn the rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees in-phase with the front wheels for better high-speed cornering or up to three degrees [...]
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 19 December 2016 – The new Lamborghini Aventador S is characterized by new aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics. The ‘S’ is the suffix of previous enhanced Lamborghini models and defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini.
“This is the next generation Aventador as well as the expression of new technological and performance milestones in super sports car development,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stefano Domenicali. “The Aventador S is visionary design, cutting-edge technology and driving dynamics in pure harmony, and elevates the concept of super sports cars to a new level.”
Design and Aerodynamics
The design of the new Aventador S clearly indicates the new Aventador generation. The Aventador S features a number of exterior developments, particularly in front and rear, while its profile remains clearly an Aventador. Every modified [...]
Forget what you know about raging bulls. Lamborghini wants to show you a softer side of Italian supercars.
So says CEO Stefano Domenicali, who moved to the company’s top spot in March. Since then, he’s been calling for a change in tone at the Volkswagen Group-owned house. Where the sharp-edged V-12 and V-10 aggression of the Murcielago, Gallardo, and Aventador reigned supreme for years, Domenicali said, buyers can expect to see something different in the next few years. “A bull is always aggressive, but I would like to give us a new philosophy toward the future: A bull can be gentle,” he said.
The goal will be to make Urus immediately identifiable as a Lamborghini, both in how it looks and in how it drives, and to make it immensely “personalizeable” for a young (30-45) target audience whose members view themselves as the “protagonists” of their own lives, [...]
The Koenigsegg One:1 owned by the BHP Project and driven by Oliver Webb broke the Vmax200 speed record not once, not twice but three times last weekend, with a terminal speed of 240mph over the 1.4 mile track at Bruntingthorpe, in the United Kingdom.
If some of that last sentence didn’t make sense to you, here are the main players in this drama…..
The BHP Project is the online presence that represents a rather extraordinary collection of sports cars, including the blue carbon Koenigsegg One:1.
Oliver Webb (Oli) is a World Endurance Championship driver from the UK, driving in the LMP1 class for ByKolles Racing in 2016.
Vmax200 by Auto Vivendi – from the event’s own website – “is the UKs premier top–speed driving event where owners of sports cars, supercars and hypercars gather at a private runway to drive their cars to their limits.”
