We don’t know why, but the first thing we thought of when we saw these photos was a shark. Doesn’t really look like Lamborghini’s bull, but it’s definitely aggressive. So, what’s this, you might ask? Well, it’s the Lamborghini Embolado concept car created by Luca Serafini, student in final year of the Industrial Design Course at the University of Parma, Italy. And it’s a cool concept, not like the Lamborghini Alar, which we presented a few months ago and which was hideous.
When Luca designed the concept, he thought of it as a replacement for the current Gallardo model and the whole design starts from the Gallardo. The name Embolado comes from a Spanish festival, named “Embolado Bull” (or Toro Embolado). Luca even created a Superleggera version of the Embolado. Of course, probably Lamborghini will never take this seriously, but still, it’s a great design. You can also check Luca Serafini’s page on deviantart.

So you thought those London cabs were fancy? Well you haven’t seen this one. How would you like a ride in this $300,000 Lamborghini Murcielago. With this car going from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph (320 km/h) I think you’d get where you want pretty fast. Wonder how much would cost?

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.

With the Frankfurt Motor Show almost here, Lamborghini is preparing something special. What we’re talking about is the Lamborghini Reventon(yeah, we know, weird name for a Lambo, but it seems this is how they’ll call it) which was developed starting from the Murcielago LP640 and its design was inspired by jet fighters. And if the Bugatti Veyron, which is its only competitor has a hp-meter, the Reventon has a G-force gauge, which indicates how many Gs your body is taking.
Now the bad news is that the Lamborghini Reventon will cost 1 million Euros. Yes, you read correctly, 1 million Euro. That’s about $1.4 million. But the good news is that you don’t have to worry about not having that money, because all 20 units which will be produced are already sold. More pics after the jump.

Here’s an interesting find. 50 Cent’s chromed Lamborghini Murcielago is for sale on eBay. The selling description doesn’t disclose whose celebrity the Lambo belongs to, but who else do you know that owns a chromed Lambo? When we wrote this post the highest bid was $225,300.

Lamborghini released first official photos of Alar, which could quite possibly be the worldâ€™s ugliest Lamborghini. We understand that aerodynamics are important, but to do that to a Lambo, well, that’s a crime. More photos after the jump. Read More: “Alar, The Ugliest Lamborghini Ever”
