Here are two new videos of the brand new Lamborghini Aventador ripping through the streets of Rome. Both the videos are great high quality from Lamborghini, and what else could you expect from their latest supercar. The sound is amazing, performance numbers are just as stunning, and the styling seems to improve from the older Murcielago and Gallardo. In a previous post here at Fancy Tuning, it was also announced that the production run for 2011 is already sold out. Hit the jump to see the second new video.
News has it that the first year production run of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been completely sold out. It has been confirmed that the waiting list for the new Aventador has increased to 18 months, and the sell out occurred immediately after the official debut at the Geneva Motor Show. This was also before the cars had even been displayed at dealerships around the world, so it goes to show you that you can’t afford to wait an extra day to reserve a supercar of this caliber. The Italian car makers expect to manufacture around 600-700 Aventadors in 2011, so this probably means that over 1,000 have already been reserved and sold. At a price of €312.970 in Germany, it proves that popularity can outweigh the price, and it was also announced that the Aventador Roadster should be ready for launch next year. Check out the video of one of the first Lamborghini Aventador at the track.
This car crash happened at a Caffeine and Octane car show in Georgia last weeked, where the owner of this insane Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo convertible spun out and then blamed it on his shoe. We have a hard time believing the shoe caused this crash because this car has some good brakes, and a shoe coming apart wouldn’t have enough pressure to push the accelerator to the floor. However, the tuning company Underground Racing are known for their high horsepower Lamborghini creations, so this is expected every now and then. Luckily the damage isn’t too bad, and should be easily repairable. Several of the tuners projects have outputs of over 1,000 horspower, including this beast seen in the video. We’re just glad no one was injured, and that the car has a quick recovery. Hit the jump to see the video and more pictures.
Edo Competition always brings their best work to the table, this time with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, tuned to produce 750 horsepower and called the LP750. The most notable mention is the fact it can reach a top speed of 365 km/h or 227 mph. At the track, it was able to reach 100 km/h or 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.7 seconds, and 300 km/h in 24.5 seconds. Customizations include modified cylinders, new intake system, hand-made manifold, revised air ducts, new free flow air filters, a high performance exhaust system, and a re-calibrated ECU to handle all these aftermarket parts. The exhaust system also features plasma coated stainless steel, and an optional remote controlled butterfly valve system.
The company Amari Supercars is a well known car dealer in the UK, but they have now combined fine cars and tuning within Amari Design to create this Lamborghini Gallardo Invidia Edition. In-house tuning was performed by master technician John Greatorex, to increase the output of the 5.0-liter V10 from 513 bhp to 740 bhp. For styling improvements, the Lambo received a new front bumper fascia, carbon fiber front lip, new front fenders, quarter panels, side skirts, rear bumper, carbon fiber diffuser and rear spoiler. Enhancing the sound and performance of the Gallardo is a custom stainless steel exhaust system to go along with the dyno tuning. Inside the sports car you will find a nice carbon fiber trim throughout the cabin, available in a range of different colors, as well as the carbon fiber racing seats trimmed in Alcantara.
The tuners from Reiter Engineering have put together a new track star based on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, and called it the LP600 because of the new performance figures. For the track, the modified Lambo received a new carbon fiber aero kit consisting of a front splitter, bumpers, new bonnet design, racing front fends, air exit ducts, underbody diffuser, and a huge rear spoiler. Reiter installed a new AP brake system with ventilated brake discs, their own double wishbone front and rear suspension, anti-roll bar, anti-drive and anti-squat, racing shocks, springs, and a new set of 18-inch racing wheels with slick tires. Tuning heads must give credit to the new lightweight aluminum frame, which received some new body parts and joint elements to make it work. In the end, this Lamborghini Gallardo only weighs in around 1190 kg, and the price for all this is pretty reasonable at 288,500 EUR.
The latest tuning program for the Lamborghini Gallardo is called the White Edition from the guys at Anderson Germany. Included in the kit is an aerodynamic package consisting of a new front apron, side skirts, rear diffuser, and a fixed rear wing. The exterior of the Gallardo Lambo was painted in a matte white to contrast the new set of black and white rims. Dropping the car closer to the ground is a new sport suspension, while the 20-inch wheels give it an aggressive and stunning look. Performance upgrades to the 5.2-liter V10 come next.
The custom wheel tuners from Savini Wheels released five creations at the SEMA Show that caught everyone’s attention. Along for the ride were a modified Lamborghini Murcielago, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Ferrari 458, and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG all sporting a new set of rims and tires. Many also feature carbon fiber accents for the body parts, tinted windows, and a lowered suspension for better handling. Hit the jump to see all the pictures of the tuned cars.
Back in October 2003 the Texas Mile held its inaugural event with a mile and a half long track allowing drivers to go as fast as possible. It has become very popular for tuning enthusiasts over the years because you can top out your car without getting in trouble with the law. It’s the perfect place to set new records, however you wouldn’t want to be the owner of this twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. Things went horribly wrong right after he hit the 1 mile marker, immediately deploying the parachute, and sending him off the right side of the track into a furry of flips. No doubt it was the parachute that caused this crash, and the sad part is that the car didn’t even need a parachute. Lamborghini factory brakes would have been plenty to stop the car before the end of the track.
The tuning company ZR Auto has released a new project using the Lamborghini Gallardo with a nasty green paint job. Personally, I would never buy a car this color, but the mods are impressive to say the least. The exotic sports car received a brand new IMSA body kit to drastically change the appearance, while a Heffner Twin Turbo performance package was installed under the engine cover. Completing the look is the IMSA wide body conversion kit, along with IMSA custom painted lightweight wheels, IMSA eight-piston big brake kit, Moton fully adjustable coilover suspension kit, IMSA clear glass engine decklid, and a custom color interior to match the puke green exterior.
The Russian tuning firm Status Design have revealed their latest project on the Lamborghini Murcielago. They teamed up with BF Performance to offer several exterior, interior, and audio upgrades for the exciting sports car. From BF Performance the car received a new bonnet, door sills, and rear spoiler, while Status Design installed their own front bumper, headlight surrounds, mirrors, side mouldings, and engine cover. All these performance parts were finished in carbon fiber, and the custom rear bumper fits a new sports exhaust system to finish off the look after adding new rims.
The tuning company at RENM Performance has released this new package for the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 called the Axiom. A Greek term meaning “being in balance” this Lamborghini received several upgrades for a custom look. Lightweight 19-inch carbon or forged three piece rims were installed, as well as few carbon fiber parts. These include new air intakes, sports filters, and carbon fiber styling for the interior. Performance is a main focus from RENM however, and this modified Murcielago was put to the test.
