Lamborghini Veneno – The Fastest Ever Italian Bull Sold at $4.7m Only To Three Buyers

Geneva Motor Show is such a cue that every carmaker is vying to get its perfect bite, though biggies are the most promising one to dive in their nose on a comparatively huge paddock.

Lamborghini was gearing to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, and so a big joyous celebration to mark the super-thrilled presence. Excitement was slated to be in the form of a super-powered car which the world had not yet experienced till date under raging Bull’s moniker.

The $4.7m Veneno is an outcome of bespoken celebration. It is in such a limited number that even riches would just not be able to pursue, because production is restricted only to three units itself.

After all it is a “rare” edition Lambi therefore expectations go with the “Sold Out” tag on it, while buyers must have deposited a big booty in the bank accounts of Italians during process.

Staring at this leaked image carefully we have came across carbon fiber fittings being donned on various components; a roof scoop, bigger rear wings and over all the massive wheels makes impressive grunts. As per some sources, V12 6.5 liter engine will be hanged in the Veneno bay so that 740 hp could be easily delivered with top notch of 220 mph (354 kmph). To contribute transmission, a seven-speed ISR robotized manual gearbox is embedded, which can be said as a perfect to the so called assorted Santa’ Agata bug.

To get more of details, stay tuned for its launch at Geneva Motor Show.

Lamborghini Murcielago crashes into a BMW bikes’ dealership with a huge loss

One scratch on our cars or bikes and our hearts miss a beat. Imagine an accident with the Lamborghini and BMW bikes. Both are highly desirable and will only break our hearts more. Many of us love bikes just as equally as we love cars. But La Provincia the Italian newspaper reported from Mariano Comense, Italy, that there was a crash where an early model of Lamborghini Murcielago lost control and went thrashing into the BMW motorcycle dealership. While getting a grip back on the car, the driver ranged into the line of BMWs parked outside the dealership and entirely destroyed almost 10 different BMWs.

The crash caused the Lamborghini to be crush like a paper pulp. The glass window of the shop before which the bikes were parked was also damaged but the car reportedly stopped at the right moment and could, therefore, prevent further damage. The driver and the passenger both successfully escaped without any injury. Hopefully the dealer’s insurance would cover all the mess and loss that he had to go through.

Lamborghini Aventador in India Preview

Lamborghini have been always associated with big, mean and really fast machines. News that they are bringing in one new car which would be small in shape is something which all Lamborghini fans would detest from. However with the recent demise of the Lamborghini Murcielago, Lamborghini’s way of bemoaning the loss is by introducing a quicker, better and ludicrous replacement, the Lamborghini Aventador. The latter is also named after a fighting bull and aptly so like all the Lamborghinis. News has filtered in that Lamborghini India have got an allocation of 10 Lamborghini Aventadors for the Indian market. Now, many would argue as to why is the Lamborghini Aventador in India needed. But then our counter question to them would be “if you have all the moolah in the world to spare, then why not get an Aventador here?”

Actually speaking, the Lamborghini Aventador in India wouldn’t be anything different than the other Lamborghinis roaming here. Infact so much is the craze for the Aventador in here that all the people with bulging cash pockets and heavy wallets have been falling over each other in the race to own a Lamborghini Aventador here. The original name of the Lamborghini Aventador is the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. The LP as every one knows stands for Longitudinal Posteriore and this signifies the position of the engine whereas the 4 at the end stands for four wheel drive. The looks of this car are well mean and we are sure that many of the Aventador’s Indian customers would prefer it that way. It is said that the Lambo Aventador is almost 29 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing model as also 9 percent lighter. Boeing in which Volkswagen has some stakes was also instrumental in developing the body of the Lamborghini Aventador. The entire body is made up of reinforced carbon fibre material. The chassis has also been highly developed so much so that it weighs in only at 376 kgs while at the same time giving twice more rigidity and strength than the Murcielago platform. All these weight saving and rigidity traversing has resulted in the Aventador growling its way from 0-100 kmph in only 2.9 seconds. Well, if you thought they cant better perfection, then look towards Lamborghini’s stables.

The design itself is highly inspired from the erstwhile Reventon model. Some styling cues have also been borrowed from the Estoque model. While both of these are highly exclusive models, the Aventador isn’t that exclusive. The very news that the Indian market has been allotted about 10 cars for sale is proof enough that this ain’t that exclusive as people would like to think it is. Lamborghini’s parent company is Audi and Audi have left no stone unturned in making the cabin of the Aventador the best place to be in for two people. The Lamborghini Aventador in India would come in the same trim as the one for other markets. This means high leather interiors with an all opulent feel plus complete digital instrument cluster where mph can be converted into kmph and mpg into kmpl, at the flick of a button. Soft plastic and the highest quality Multi Media Interface or MMI system is also provided.

An all new 6.5 liter V12 engine also makes its debut for the Lamborghini Aventador in India and this engine makes 700 Bhp of power and 691 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The transmission is a robotized Independent Shifting Rod or ISR, which has been specifically designed for Lamborghini and mimics the shifts of an F1 gearbox. An electronic control system from Haldex works the part of the 4 wheel drivetrain. The 19 inch front tyres and the 20 inchers at the rear act the part of giving this car a mean look. The maximum speed that one can stretch this car is to 350 kmph. The black brake calipers look absolutely menacing and needless to say, do their primary job of hauling the 1457 kgs car to a halt without any drama. Needless to say, many of the electronic aids are also present and though Lamborghini haven’t stretched on the safety aspect much, it can be safely assumed that this Lambo will have good safety sense. The Aventador’s engine is also the first all new engine developed by Lamborghini after the one in the Countach. Stephan Winkelmann, the CEO of Automobili Lamborghini has proclaimed to the world that this car is almost two generations ahead of the other Lambos in term of design as also technology.

Now, the Indians amongst us would want to know the fuel efficiency of this V12 engined car. It is speculated to be 4.2 kmpl in city and 6.4 kmpl on the highway. Now, the Lamborghini Aventador price in India is said to be Rs 4 crores. Deliveries would start maybe in June 2011.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Review

Sesto Elemento. What does this mean to you? Probably the 6th element in the modern day periodic table. Wait, if my memory serves me right or to say that I am using my Bsc Chemistry background, it is Carbon. Let me double check. Yipee, I am right. But why would a car be named as carbon in Italy. It has got something to do. The car I am referring to is the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. Believe me, that’s the coolest name I have ever heard for a car.

Now, Lamborghini showed this concept car named as the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento at the Paris Motor show. The reason why the car is so named is because of the high use of carbon-fibre. Lamborghini management is concentrating more on reducing the weight of a car rather than increase its power. This has been going on through the mind of other super car makers like Ferrari, which amply demonstrated its concept car named as Milli Chille in the 2008 Paris Motor Show. Carbon, as we know is one of the lightest element to be used for building a car. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento comprises of about 85% of carbon fibre and this makes it one of the lightest super cars. It weighs in only at 999 kgs and this is lighter by the similar motored Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera by about 315 kgs. The engine by the way is the 5.2 liter, direct injection, V10. It produces 570 Bhp of power and about 530 Nm of torque. It is 4 wheel drive equipped. Now that is speaking of volumes about the production techniques used in the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

Lamborghini actually used carbon fibre as a component of the car way back in 1983. The percentage of the element used was about 38%. Carbon fibre other than been light also has more energy absorbing capacity. In short, it is more tensile than aluminium. Look inside the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and you would find that the seats are just cushions fused into the carbon fibre frame. Even inside, everything is black signifying the heavy use of carbon fiber. There are only 3 buttons on the dash namely, the engine start, lights and reverse. There is a red color used for some stitchings as well as on the outside for the rear diffuser and carbon ceramic disc brakes. The tail pipes are made of PyroSic, which is a glass composite having very high resistance to heat. The gear box is also the E- gear tranny, while not preferring the heavy dual clutch to be used in a sports car. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento races from 0-100 kmph in 2.5 seconds. Same like the Buggati Veyron which is significantly more powerful as well as heavier.

Will it make it into production or not is the million dollar question asked? Sadly, the answer is no. This was confirmed by one of the top management person. He also said that there are chances that only a few would be made and sold at a million dollar price tag. Future cars from the Lamborghini stable would also feature the heavy use of carbon fibre. All they want to do is make cars with the power to weight ratio like a motorbike. The power to weight ratio of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is approximately 572 Bhp per tonne and this is definitely one of the most powerful super cars.
