Lamborghini tries to surprise the car lovers with new and incredible sports cars, more luxurious and fast each time. During the years, the Italian automaker revealed a lot of concept cars, each of them more futuristic and high performance than the previous which proves that the future of the car industry is well outlined and for the interested buyers the offer will be of high quality.
One of these concept cars revealed by Lamborghini is the Lamborghini Embolado which is the creation of Luca Serafini, an Industrial Design final year student from the Parma University, Italy. The Lamborghini Embolado is the result of Luca’s desire to become a future designer of the Lamborghini brand. He actually lives in Modena, just a few miles away from the Lamborghini’s head quarters. Close enough to call it “home”.
The young student confessed that in designing the Embolado he was inspired by “the research of a Spanish festival, called Embolado Bull”. This new Lamborghini car is based on the Gallardo’s dimensions but this time the designer defined the main lines in a steady way providing the soon to be next Lamborghini sports car with “the front end taurin forms”. Because the side surfaces give any viewer the impression of movement, the Lamborghini Embolado can be considered to have a natural sleek appearance. Also, one can state that the exterior design of the Embolado is entirely based on “aggressiveness”.
The Lamborghini Embolado can be distinguished because of its sharp edges and short front and rear overhangs. The exterior design is completed by the dominating side air intakes placed forward of the rear wheels. As a result, the car has a lot of incredible shadows and highlights which can be seen around the rear arches and side sills. The “nose” of the Lamborghini Embolado and the rear panel are well designed and are very difficult to define. That’s because the rear panel seems cluttered while the nose looks “old-fashioned” if we compare it with the Murcielago’s LP640 or the Gallardo’s front end.
This new concept car will definitely bring something new in the car industry because the Embolado is expected to become a commercial sports car. The Lamborghini Embolado has that “quelque-chose” that will allow it to become one of the most popular sports car. To ensure that, it’s very likely that this sports car will be equipped with a powerful engine and high performance engineering components as any other Lamborghini car. And definitely, the interior will be as luxurious and exotic as its exterior, even if the Italian automaker will try to manufacture this car as a commercial vehicle available for every buyer’s budget.
Even if the Italian automaker hasn’t yet decided when the Lamborghini Embolado will be introduced in production, I hope that this decision will be taken soon, because this sports car looks amazing and if Lamborghini decides to make it available on the market at a reasonable price, we will have the opportunity to enjoy driving an extremely aggressive sports car. Imagine that: being the owner of an incredible fast and luxurious car at a pretty good price. It’s just a question of time until the day when Lamborghini will announce the release of the Lamborghini Embolado as a brand new model. My advice for you is to prepare yourself for a new era of the car industry. A new era when owning a fast and luxurious sports car even if you aren’t rich will no longer be a problem. But we must pray the crowed traffic will also be kept under control, so that we can enjoy our ride.
Who doesn’t want to own a Lamborghini car? Let’s not forget that this is the ultimate dream of a real driver that wants to feel a real car, that enjoys speed and also want to drive a sport car with the best design ever created. But from this dream to the reality is actually a long way. But the luckiest people of us that can actually afford buying one Lamborghini to their anniversary. Who are we talking about? The answer is simple: Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber Lamborghini
In July 2010 Justin Bieber was seen with his friend Sean Kingston in a white Lamborghini, a beauty on 4 wheels, like we can see on his website www.justinbieberzone.com. The luxury car of which the majority of the adult men only dream at is now the property of Justin who has only 16 years old.
Justin Bieber was turned 16 years old on 1st March 2010 and soon after that he passed the driving test. He actually laughed when P-Diddy promised him a Lamborghini for his birthday and even mentioned in an interview that the rapper is all talk, he will never make that expensive gift to a kid. Seems that he was wrong and he actually received the greatest gift of all.
Justin Bieber Lamborghini
Justin Bieber Lamborghini was a gift offered to the adolescent by the rapper named P-Diddy, the second protector of the teenager in the musical industry. You may wonder the occasion for this fabulous gift. This is very simple he turned 16 years old, the legal age for obtaining driving license in United States of America.
This car gifted by the famous rapper is a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder white coloured with a value of $200,000. You have to be very famous to be able to drive this car for the first time when you drive a car. Some of the celebrities that own a car like this are Kobe Bryant and David Beckham.
Do you think the Lamborghini offered by P-Diddy is the only great car Justin Bieber received on his birthday? Then you are very wrong. His mentor, Usher, also bought him one of the greatest SUV cars, a Range Rover. We can guess that he choose to drive more the Lamborghini if we think about this car value and aspect. The R&B singer is very known among all the teenagers in U.S.A. and highly appreciated by them. Now he will also be a model for most of them in the key moment of their life, for example when they choose to buy a car for sure the richest of the teenagers will choose a Lamborghini.
Without any other commentary o invite you to see the Justin Bieber Lamborghini driven by the charismatic singer, one of the most titrated American artists.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore
Another interesting launch at the Qatar Motor Show is the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore and as the name implies, the car comes with a special two-tone paintwork with Noctis Black accents and a body that is available in Blu Caelum, Bianco Monocerus, Grigio Telesto, Arancio Borealis and Giallo Midas. Inside the cockpit you will find a Nero Noctis trim and Nero Persus leather that has contrast stitching which imitates the color of the exterior body.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore
The Bicolore has the same engine as the original version, which is a 5.2-liter V10 unit that develops 552 hp (560 PS / 412 kW) and 398 lb.-ft (540 Nm) of torque. The engine is linked to a standard e-gear transmission and allows the car to do the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.7 seconds, onto a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h).

At the moment we can’t tell you how much this special edition is going to cost but we do know that it will be available in European and Asian-Pacific markets. The Americans will be able to buy the LP550-2 Bicolore which is just about the same car as the 560-4 Bicolore, except for the AWD system and 10 hp (10 PS / 7 kW) of output.
REITER Lamborghini Gallardo LP600
REITER Engineering has recently unveiled the Lamborghini Galardo LP600+ racer which benefits from a bundle of upgrades in comparison with the normal version launched by the Italian automaker. The heart of this car is a V10 5211cc power unit that is capable of producing 600 hp @ 8,000 rpm after some serious modifications. The car is equipped with a four overhead camshafts distribution, three water radiators, a variable geometry intake system as well as an OBR – fully programmable, electronic power management. Other important updates brought over the standard model include a new engine bonnet design, new gear ratio, an updated front splitter and a new exhaust system.
Here are some of the most important specifications of the REITER Lamborghini Gallardo LP600, taken from the official press release:
It has a V-10 90 degree engine mid-mounted longitudinal. The distribution consists of four overhead camshafts and the capacity of the power unit is 5211 cc. The bore and stroke level is 84.51 x 92.8 mm and the intake system features variable geometry. The valve gear is chain driven, intake and exhaust continuously variable valve timing (electronically controlled). The 600 hp are available at 8,000 rpm and the cooling system consists of three water radiators that have updated exit ducts forward of front wheels.
REITER Lamborghini Gallardo LP600
The distribution of the weight is 43/57 (front/rear) while the front and rear suspension consist of a REITER Engineering double wishbone. The car rolls on 11 x 18 inch magnesium rims in the front and 12.5 x 18 inch magnesium wheels in the rear. The wheels are covered by 300/650 – 18 Racing tires in the front and 310/710 – 18 Racing tires in the back. Splitter covers complete the frontal under floor of the LP600+.
The price for all of these goodies is 288.500 EUR (+ VAT). A bargain, wouldn’t you say?
HAMANN Lamborghini Gallardo Victory II
The first version of the Hamann Lamborghini Gallardo Victory was launched back in 2007 and now the second iteration of the tuning program has arrived. The new package consists of an updated wide body kit, increased engine output and better handling capabilities. The body of the Gallardo is now broader and the number of the carbon components has significantly increased.
One of the most important features of the car is the Lambo-doors which aren’t available for the standard Gallardo model. Hamann had the great idea (in our opinion) to add them with the occasion of the Victory II tuning program. In addition to the spectacular doors, the tuning package consists of a fresh new front apron in Race-design that has a center carbon part, enhancing the sporty look of the sexy Italian car. The Gallardo Victory II received new fenders in the front as well as fender extensions in the back of it. The air inlet located on the roof and the extended side skirts are available in carbon.
In the back of the Gallardo Victory II you will notice the fresh new design of the rear wing and the diffuser. The rear wing is available in carbon or fiber glass, depending on the choice of the customers. In addition, the people at Hamann can add a carbon layer to the bonnet on top of that. The car now rolls on 20-inch Edition Race wheels that have a special varnish, emphasizing the new fresh and dynamic appearance of the Gallardo. The reduced unsprung masses translate into better handling capabilities as well as a more agile acceleration and safer braking. Hamann recommends the following wheel/tire combination: 9.5Jx20 with 235/30ZR20 tires for the front wheels and 13Jx20 with 325/25ZR20 for the back wheels of the Gallardo.
HAMANN Lamborghini Gallardo Victory II
By adjusting the power unit’s electronics, the Hamann Lamborghini Gallardo Victory II is now capable of outputting 580 hp (427 kW) and an impressive maximum torque of 575 Nm. With this power boost, the car is now capable of reaching a respectable top speed of 328 km/h. By applying an end muffler to the serial end pipes, the massive V10 engine of the car sounds more spectacular than ever.
Moving inside the car, the Hamann Gallardo is fitted with a 14-part carbon set that features various decorative blends, the door openers and the steering wheel. For a perfect seating position, the car is equipped with Hamann sport seats that have a carbon back render. As an optional feature, the upholstery can be offered in a bundle of variations and configurations, depending on the request of the customer. The car is available with personalized floor mats and entire leather upholstery.
The price for the Hamann Lamborghini Gallardo Victory II has not been announced yet.
Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White
Another day, another tuning program, and this time we are talking about the Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White. The Dusseldorf-based Andreson tuning company has become popular for offering very bold solutions for top flight vehicles from around the world exceeding the declared manufacturer specifications. Their latest product, inspired from the beautiful Italian super car, the Lamborghini Galardo, is yet another proof of the inexhaustible creativity of the team of engineers from the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, according to the published press release of the company.
The performance kit that comes with this tuning program takes the power of the Gallardo from 500 hp to 600 hp, which is considerably more. This was done thanks to the various modifications brought to the original car, like the use of a software optimization and by adding a modified air filter along with a sport exhaust system with additional Rennkats. The program developed by Anderson includes a remote-controlled valve adjusting system that allows the driver of the Gallardo to choose from one of the three different levels of noise and at the same time, it reduces the overall weight of the Italian beauty by 22 kg.
The driving dynamics of the car have also been improved thanks to the special sport suspension module combined with an accurate undercarriage. With the occasion of this new tuning program, Anderson launched new three-piece shiny rims painted with a deep fish and having the following dimensions 9×20 inch for the front wheels and 12.5 x 20 for the rear wheels. The car sports 245/30-20 high-performance tires in the front and 325/25-20 for the rear wheels, offering the necessary adherence with the asphalt surface.
Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White
As far as the exterior of the Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White is concerned, you will notice the carbon trim, the updated rear spoiler, the redesigned rear bumper diffuser, new side skirts and a fresh front apron. In addition, the car benefits from taillight and window tinting and LED lights that contrast the red-painted calipers.
The interior design of the car has also undergone some modifications, featuring white carbon details on the shift lever, the border of the internal light in the roof lining, the dashboard, the shift paddles, and the hand brake lever and on the vents. Black and white leather along with black Alacantara materials was used for the seats of the White Racing Edition. The edges of these seats are entirely done in white. The doors as well as the seats have diamond-shaped stitching, giving the car a very interesting look, both from the interior, but also from the exterior.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante
Lamborghini will roll out today a new edition of the Gallardo – LP 570-4 Spyder Performante to be more exact. This old-new model is in fact a regular Superleggera with a drop top. Other modifications in comparison to the standard model include a fully-covered underbody, very aggressive side skirts, a new front fascia and a redesigned rear diffuser. The car will be riding on 19” lightweight wheels with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
Moving inside the car, we will find the Alcantara sport seats and the omnipresent carbon fiber trim. Surprisingly for Lamborghini, they did not remove power windows and AC in order to reduce weight. However, the car is now more lighter thanks to its many carbon fiber and aluminum parts which makes the car only 3,274 lbs (1,485 kg) heavy. The standard LP 560-4 Spyder is 143 lbs (65 kg) heavier than the Performante.
Sneak Peek At The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4
The heart of the car is a V10 5.2-liter that is capable of outputting 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) and a massive torque of 540 Nm (398 lb-ft). Equipped with a e-gear transmission, the car only needs 3.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h and has a top speed of 201 mph (324 km/h). Buyers can also get a six-speed manual gearbox without additional costs.
More information about the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante will be released in the following days so come back for a visit.
France hasn’t been really sticking its head out regarding the tuning industry, leaving that domain to the germans or japanese guys, but Jeremi Paret decided to take matters into his own hands and put France on the tuning map. His first creation is this really beautiful Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, which received quite a lot of accesories, like a Reventon-inspired front bumper or pink brake calipers.
First of all, Jeremi Paret aims to bring tuning to another level, by first of all making a virtual mock-up of what the car will look like and showing it to the customers before any hands are placed on the actual car. The owner will have a huge say in the model’s development, the tuners focusing on unique customization, insteand of ready made tuning packages which can be applied by anyone. Another innovation is that the firm offeres to pay for the transport of the car in France, which will be sure to turn some heads and make the customers smile.
But let’s focus on this beautiful Gallardo, the first things that pops out is the front bumper which remings of the Reventon, the carbon fiber front spoiler lip, side skirts and door handles really contrast with the candy white paint job, a big rear diffuser accentuates the power that this car is capable of, and last but definetely not least, the pink brake calippers really bring a unique twist on the car, looking really nice inside the Asanti Diamond wheels. Inside, comfort is at its peak, the leather seats and Alpine entertainment system bring quality to the ride. One more photo after the jump. (more…)
The guys from Garage 419 weent at this weekend’s Pebble Beach event and managed to get an interview from the Lamborghini CEO, Mr. Stefan Winkelmann. It’s a very interesting video and I suggest you watch it. We find out that so far Lamborghini has no plans on releasing a Superleggera version of the Gallardo LP560-4 or a two-wheel drive version. However, what’s really interesting is that Mr. Winkelmann confirms that the Italian company is currently thinking about getting back into motorsport. See the video for more.
The Lamborghini Gallardo is a great car, but has always been in the shadow of it’s bigger brother, the Murcielago, performance-wise, getting a limited edition 540 bhp edition while the Murc got a 640 one. Although this power was enough for most people, Florida-based tuner Heffner decided to push the limits of the Gallardo’s engine and try to obtain the maximum power with any modification necessary. The result ? An astonishing 930 bhp (694 kW).
This of course was the result of the heavy modded 5 litre V10 engine, steel cylinder liners, new pistons, polished crankshaft journals, a new twin-turbo system fitted to a custon exhaust and intake systems, twin wastegates and blow-off valves, a twin-stage electronic boost controller and the most important, a heavy duty clutch to help put all that power down. To contain the power, upgraded fuel and water pumps were also installed, as were fuel injector and a water-cooled intercooler system. Exterior changes consist of a carbon fiber rear decklid and a Superleggera inspired rear difuser and spoiler.
All these mods led to a peak torque of 1032Nm (762lb-ft ), an incredible amount for a street car, that’s why Heffner also put a two stage boost controller to help maintain a steady stream of power through 1st and 2nd gear. No word about the AWD system being disabled in this car, as was with previous versions, but for this kind of power, it would definetely be needed.
Benny Caiola Jr. is the lucky owner of the first Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 delivered in the United States. The car was delivered this week, after Mr. Caiola placed the winning bid at the East Side House Settlement charity auction during the 2008 New York International Auto Show. He is an Italian car enthusiat, his car collection including other Lamborghinis, such as the Countach, Diablo, Espada, Jalpa or the Miura. “Lamborghini was the first to garner my passion for automobiles […] I’ve loved Lamborghinis my entire life and have owned nearly every model”, he added.
For the rest of the customers, the rest of the LP560-4 (which have a six month wainting list) will start arriving later this summer.
Yeah, I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true. I can’t say if this is a weird Mustang or a really weird Lamborghini Gallardo, but one thing’s for sure, this thing is called the Tractorri Lamborghini Mustang. Presented at the 2007 SEMA Show, it was built by John Haugh from Cleveland, Ohio who created this using (or should I say destroying) a new Lamborghini Gallardo and a new Ford Mustang.
The Mustang body was modified (the rear part is from the Gallardo) and the car features Gallardo’s mid-engined all-wheel drive powertrain plus the 520 HP V10 engine. And another impressive thing about this car is its interior, which looks exactly like Gallardo’s interior. So, its safe to say that actually we have a Lambo with a Mustang body. Crazy!

What happens when you get drunk and then listen to your retarded friends? Well, this happens. Frankie Hulme, some English guy, got drunk and, goaded by his friends did this stunt presented in the video below. But that’s not all, the stupidity doesn’t end here. The second day, he went again with his friends to a pub, to watch a game and started to send the video with his cellphone, via Bluetooth.
His bad luck was that in the pub there also was a friend of Neil Greentree, the Lamborghini Murcielago’s owner. So, of course, the police was notified and now our friend Frankie has to do 100 hours of community service, can’t leave his house between 8pm and 6am on weekends for the next four months, plus he has to pay a Â£1,000 ($2,000 or â‚¬1,440) compensation to the owner, even though the damage exceeds Â£20,000 ($40,000 or â‚¬29,000).
So you think your Lambo is dull and you need to spice it up? Ok, in this case you have some mental problems, but that’s just me. Because Hamann presented the Lamborghini Gallardo Victory, a tuning package featuring a wide body-kit plus some internal modifications, like a reprogrammed ECU, high-flow exhaust system and new sport brake system.
The body-kit features a new front apron with an integrated spoiler and adjustable racing-spoiler lip, new fender extensions, new side skirts, modified rear bumper and an air scoop on the roof, plus 20 inch alloy wheels. View a photo gallery after the jump.
If your name is Shaquille O’Neal, you might wonder what could go wrong in your life? Well, Shaq’s latest problem was his Lamborghini Gallardo which had to be modified by Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, so that the 7.1 feet NBA superstar could feel more confortable in it.
The Gallardo received custom extended doors, roof and side windows. The challenge was also to keep the car’s “visual integrity” with the changes. Glass fabrication was a particular challenge, so the company relied on their aerospace and coachworks divisions to make sure Shaq could fit in the car. And they did a great job, and the Lambo still looks normal, even if its now 12 inches longer. I imagine Shaq having a “Pimp my ride” reaction “ohh my good, thank you X, thanks Gaffoglio for pimping my ride”.
