    Lamborghini’s stripped-out supercar is now the King of the Nürburgring.

     

    Sant’Agata Bolognese, 1 March 2017 – The Lamborghini Huracán Performante has already proved its extraordinary capabilities ahead of its unveiling at Geneva Motor Show next week. On 5 October 2016, the Huracán Performante set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 min on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.

    Following the day’s open sessions on the “Ring”, at 17.00 officials closed the track to other manufacturers. After official track checks this left just a 15-minute window for Lamborghini to make one attempt at the lap record with a production Huracán Performante, still in its development camouflage.

    With Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli  behind the wheel, who also drove the Aventador SV to its Nürburgring sub seven-minute lap time in 2015, the Huracán Performante warmed up its tires and made its rolling start, fitted inside and out with [...]

    Lamborghini and Blancpain announcement

    Since 2009, Blancpain and Lamborghini have powered their Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make racing series to a peak position

    PRESS RELEASE February 8, 2017. www.lamborghini.com

    Since 2009, Blancpain and Lamborghini have powered their Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make racing series to a peak position.

    Sant’Agata Bolognese, 8 February 2017 – The long-standing and successful partnership between Blancpain S.A. and Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. concluded on 31 December 2016.

    For eight years the two manufacturers shared their vision of precision, reliability and performance as well as technical feats, exclusive aesthetics and innovation. The fruit of this close cooperation, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, was a natural alliance between mechanical watchmaking and car-making that earned great success, first in Europe and subsequently in Asia and the United States.

    Blancpain and Lamborghini grew together during this period, reflected by the number of participants that also increased year on year, expanding from 11 Gallardo Super Trofeo on [...]

    Lamborghini is about to become bigger than it’s ever been since it was founded in 1963 – much bigger. The expansion will be driven by the addition of a luxurious, high-performance SUV previewed by the Urus concept at the 2012 edition of the Beijing Auto Show. Officials predict the brand will be able to sell 3,500 examples of the off-roader annually.

    Annual sales of the Huracán and the Aventador will be capped at approximately 3,500 units combined to maintain exclusivity, meaning the Raging Bull’s annual output will balloon to about 7,000 cars. The company is expanding its only factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, produce the extra units.

    We sat down with company CEO Stefano Domenicali to get more insight on the upcoming SUV, and what it means for a brand known globally for building super sports cars.

    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 [...]
