PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s Preparing For A New One-Off/Limited Edition Model

When it comes to building one-off supercars, nobody does it quite like Lamborghini. From past examples like the Reventon and the Sesto Elemento to more recent offerings like the Aventador J, the Veneno Roadster, and the Centenario, no automaker has enthralled our imaginations and lamented our lots in life like the Raging Bull. I could wax poetic about all these exotics, but there’s far more pressing news to discuss. Apparently, Lamborghini isn’t done building one-offs just yet. There’s a new one on the way and no less than Lambo’s director of research and development Maurizio Reggiani confirmed as much to Car Advice.

Reggiani didn’t reveal much about this new one-off, and for good reason. What he did say was the company is planning to present its customers with a new one-off (really a “small number of cars” in Lamborghini’s dictionary) supercar that will “introduce some new technology” into the fold. What “new technology” exactly means is the intriguing element of this new supercar, on top of a whole list of other cutting-edge features. As far as a timetable is concerned, Reggiani didn’t spill the beans on that front either, possibly because he didn’t want to take any attention away from the company’s most important new car in recent years, the Lamborghini Urus SUV. That model is scheduled to make its world debut on December 4, 2017. Given the timeframe, it’s possible that this new limited edition Lamborghini will be the automaker’s main attraction at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s New Teaser Of The Urus SUV Is Getting Us All Pumped Up

Excuse me for a second for taking a break from the whirlwind that is the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Given all the head-spinning induced by all these debuts, I think it’s time for a little breather. Let me divert your collective attentions for a quick minute and tell you about a car that’s making headlines, not because it showed up in Frankfurt, but because it’s debuting three months from now in December 2017. That car, ladies and gentlemen, is the Lamborghini Urus, and just as the Italian automaker is grabbing people’s attention in Frankfurt with the Aventador Roadster S, the Italian supercar company has its sight sets on its next big thing.

Truth be told, far too much has been said about the Urus SUV over the years. From skepticism to excitement, doubt to giddiness, Lambo has put us through an emotional roller-coaster with regards to the Urus. And now that it’s three months away from finally making its world debut, the Raging Bull is continuing to build up the hype by releasing a minute-long trailer revolving around the message that Lamborghini is a pioneer above all else. Even the trailer’s title – #SinceWeMadeItPossible – touches on that message, as does the content itself, which pretty much describes Lamborghini as an innovator, rule-breaker, and challenger to the status quo. Regardless of what most of us think of these boasts, it’s hard to argue against any of them when the evidence of the company’s innovation is the very reason why we’re circling December 4 in our calendars. The Urus SUV is finally arriving, folks. Best to save the date this early.

PostHeaderIcon Underground Racing Twin-Turbo Lambo Huracan Goes 257 MPH In Standing Half Mile: Video

Introduced in March of 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show as a follow-up to the Gallardo, the Huracan is currently Lamborghini’s most popular model, selling in droves across a variety of markets. And why not – making it go is a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V-10, which routes as much as 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque through a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. Properly motivated, the 0-to-62 mph sprint is dispatched in 3 seconds dead, while top speed eclipses the 200-mph mark. All very impressive stuff, no doubt, but as is the case, there are some out there who simply crave more. Enter Underground Racing, a U.S.-based tuner that specializes in adding absurd amounts of boost to exotics like the aforementioned Lambo. If you’ve got the money, Underground Racing has the parts you need to scorch the airstrip, as evidenced by this quick 3-minute video.

Shot at the recent Half-Mile Indy Airstrip Attack Event in Marion, Indiana, this video shows what happens when you keep the loud pedal pinned for an extended period of time. All told, the boosted Bull manages an impressive 256.99 mph at the end of the tarmac, a figure made even more impressive when you consider this a full-fledged street car with a full interior. Foot down, head back, and go.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster

The Lamborghini Aventador is crowned as Lambo’s most iconic model, and since its introduction in 2011, the family has grown considerably. After the base Aventador hit the road, it paved the way for models like the Aventador J, the LP 750-4 SuperVeloce, the Dreamliner Edition, and was even used as the basis for cars like the Veneno and Centenario. By the time late 2016 came around, the car that was responsible for the aforementioned models – and replaced the Murcielago in the lineup – was due for an update that brought about a revamping of the car’s aerodynamics and its chassis to go along with a mild update to power output as well. Now, in early September of 2017 – at least a month before the new 2018 Aventador S will be delivered to the first customers – Lambo has decided to present us with the Aventador S Roadster, a topless version of the new S that is destined to stand out next to its less-frisky counterpart by means of unlimited headroom packed into a head-turning package.

So that sounds good and all, but what does it really mean? Well, it means that the world’s only super sports roadster with a mid-rear V-12 is its own standalone model that’s highly customizable with five different interior configurations, and an unlimited choice of exterior colors via the Ad Persona program. It takes four-wheel drive to an all-new level alongside things like the active suspension system, four-wheel steering system, and Lambo’s classic LDS and LMS systems that were revised specifically for the Aventador S Roadster. So, even though the Aventador S Coupe is still fairly fresh in our minds, it’s time to take a good look at its topless counterpart. And, you better hurry if you want to be informed – this baby makes its first official debut to the masses at none other than the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Updated 09/18/2017: We added a series of new images taken during the car’s official debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster Revealed

Not that either the Aventador S coupe or the regular Roadster Aventador were slow or dull, but Lamborghini thought the market needs a combination of these two. So feast your eyes on the new Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster, a 740 horsepower open-top super car no one needs but everyone wants.

You are probably familiar with the technical specs of Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster. Under that awesome engine cover lurks a 740 horsepower naturally-aspirated V12 monster mated to a 7-speed ISR single-clutch transmission. Accelerating 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds with top speed 350 km/h (217 mph) is the performance this motor delivers. Assisting it in that job are a Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), Lamborghini Magneto-rheological Suspension (LMS), and active rear wing, among other features such as STRADA, SPORT and CORSA and the new EGO mode.

As for the styling and roof arrangement, the latter is still a manual carbon fiber piece that is not particularly easy to live it. The S treatment means Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster gets some cool bumpers with revised grilles and wheel designs. It’s not much, but it’s enough to make Lambo fans happy. The new model get more colors combinations though, especially inside the cabin where five interior configurations are offered, featuring leather and Alcantara in single and bi-color combinations and various stitching and trim choices. And of course you have the Ad Personam division to personalize and “exclusify” your supercar.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Veneno Vs Ferrari Sergio, The Answer to Supercar Boredom

Like most people who eat, sleep, and breathe cars, I often find myself going to online classifieds to see which cars are up for sale. It doesn’t matter the price, the location, or even my ability to actually buy them. I just like looking at them and wonder who’ll end up paying that much money on what effectively are second-hand cars. This week though, I chanced upon two vehicles that don’t count as traditional cars. Heck, “traditional” isn’t even the word I’d use to describe them as supercars. These two ungodly beasts – a Lamborghini Veneno and a Ferrari Sergio – fall into categories unto themselves.

It doesn’t even matter that one of them is being sold for a price of $9.5 million whereas the other costs a “far more affordable” sum of $6.1 million. What got me is that they’re being sold roughly the same time, though not exactly by the same seller. So I thought that, if I had the money to purchase either of these two cars, which one would I buy? Would I splurge on the Veneno or the Sergio? There are obviously no wrong answers; it’s just a matter of taste, preference, or in the case of the Sergio, saving a little over $3 million in the process. Better yet, I asked my colleagues the same question. Given a choice, is it the mind-numbing Veneno or the no less spectacular Sergio?

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s New Alpha-One Smartphone Is The Definition Of Unnecessary Excess

Part of what makes Lamborghini a premium brand is that it can slap its name on anything and that “thing” suddenly becomes a premium item. No more is this evident than on laptops and smartphones. Remember the Asus Lamborghini VX Series? How about the ZX1 smartphone? Now, the Raging Bull’s likeness will once again be stamped on a smartphone. This one is called “Alpha-One,” and it’s a waste of $2,450.

Now, I will indulge those who think a Lamborghini-branded smartphone is something worth splurging on. The Alpha-One, to its credit, isn’t a shill. It does have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, which is supposedly fast and does lots of cool things. It also has four gigabytes worth of RAM with expandable storage, a 20-megapixel rear camera, an eight-megapixel front camera, a fingerprint scanner, a 5.5-inch WQHD display, and an Android Nougat operating system. I’ll give it this much: it’s well-equipped, which is more than what other faux mobile phone brands can say for themselves. Take it a step further and you might even be impressed by its supposed liquid metal frame and Italian handmade black leather back case, which by the way, has its own contrast stitching. On the surface, everything about it checks out as a premium smartphone, and that’s precisely what it’s problem is. As well-equipped as it is, there’s no way that the Alpha-One should cost $2,450, roughly double the price of the most powerful version of the iPhone that’s out in the market today. Then again, that’s the price people will have to pay for it, all because it has “Lamborghini” logo.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s Future Car Lineup Will Leave Plenty Of Jaws On The Floor

Now that the Lamborghini Urus is close to hitting dealerships, the Italian automaker is setting its sights on its future, and if new reports are to be believed, that future is going to be packed with enough supercar mayhem to quench the thirst of enthusiasts for a generation. That’s because Lamborghini is now thinking big on plans to usurp the likes of Ferrari and McLaren, and it’s doing with so with a rush of iterations for the Huracán to go with big plans for the eventual successor to the Aventador. If Lambo is successful in giving life to these plans, it could potentially swing the tide of supercar sentiment back to the side of the Raging Bull.

According to Automobile Magazine, Sant’Agata is planning to expand the Huracán lineup to include Speedster and Barchetta versions, which effectively will be lightweight versions of the existing Huracán that will be developed with an eye towards infusing these models with racing credentials. Speaking of lightweight offerings, a lighter version of the Huracán Performante is also in Lambo’s plans, as is a Targa version, a configuration we rarely see from Lamborghini. In fact, you’d have to go all the way back to the super limited Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster from 1999 as the last Lamborghini to feature a taiga-style roof. On the higher end of the Huracán range, Lamborghini’s future plans could include a hardcore Superveloce model and an even more hardcore GT3 Stradale version. That’s six potential future variants for the just the Huracán, and that doesn’t even include the Huracán Safari, a never-before-done version that will feature, among other things, a height-adjustable suspension, bigger wheel arches, all-terrain body protection panels, all-wheel drive, and four-wheel steering. Oh, Lamborghini reportedly has big plans for the Aventador’s successor, too.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Huracan Perfomante

After ten successful years on the market, during which it became the company’s best-selling sports car ever, the Lamborghini Gallardo was replaced by the Huracan in 2014. Boasting a new design inside and out, a revised drivetrain, and better performance, the Huracan hit the sports car market with a bang, selling more than 1,500 units in 2014 and more than 4,700 in 2016. With some 8,500 examples sold as of early 2017, it sure looks as if the Huracan will surpass the Gallardo’s 14,022-unit record sales in a few years. However, Lambo knows that resting on its laurels isn’t the best thing to do so it’s hard at work to expand the Huracan family. The latest model to join the lineup goes by the name Performante and made its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

As the name suggests, the Performante is a higher performance version of the standard Huracan and a successor to the Gallardo Superleggera. Although it was originally believed that the Huracan will also get a Superleggera badge, Lambo eventually decided to replace it with Performante. The name swap is rather surprising given that the high-performance Aventador retained the SuperVeloce name from its predecessor, but I agree that Performante is as fitting as Superleggera for a range-topping sports car.

Overall, the Huracan Performance is a big step forward compared to the Gallardo Superleggera, but it’s also a significant departure from the standard Huracan in terms of aerodynamics and performance. Find out more about it in my review below.

Updated 08/24/2017: We added a series of images taken during the 2017 Monterey Car Week.

PostHeaderIcon Don’t Hold Your Breath On Scoring An Italdesign Zerouno

Italdesign Automobili Speciali’s first foray into the niche supercar segment has turned out to be a big hit after the newly-minted automaker announced that all examples of the Zerouno supercar are all accounted for. That’s five units, each priced comfortably north of seven figures. All of them. Sold out.

Keep in mind that while the Zerouno does have the beating heart of the Lamborghini Huracán – a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that pumps out 610 horsepower – the car itself has an entirely original body, a design product from the genius designers over at Italdesign. So it’s not a car that’s masquerading as a different model by simply having a different badge on it. The Zerouno is an original work, the first to come out of Italdesign’s Automobili Speciali division that was created earlier this year for the specific purpose of developing its own performance models under the Volkswagen Group umbrella. To this point, the company has actually built just two of the five models of the Zerouno. The first model was introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show to coincide with the brand’s launch. The second is expected to make its debut at Pebble Beach in a little under two weeks. The remaining three models will be built at a later date, each to its customer’s exact specifications.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Huracan Convoy Hits the Transfagarasan

huracan-convoy

You loyal fans of the old Top Gear will no doubt remember the name Transfagarasan from the boys’ Romanian adventure. This amazing piece of road was hailed by the trio as one of the best driving roads in the world. And a convoy of six Lamborghini Huracan decided to see that for themselves. 

The mountain road looks absolute stunning and feels even greater to drive on. But the first thing that strikes you about the Transfagarasan is the facts and figures. A 90 km spaghetti of the most awesome corners and chicanes, the road passes through the land of Dracula in the Transylvania region of Romania. It climbs through the highest mountains and takes you from utter desolation to heavenly greenery in a matter of minutes. It is a place of paradoxes, the Transfagarasan.

The same applies to the road’s history. Built between 1970 and 1974 by order of dictator Nicolae Ceau?escu mainly for military purposes, the Transfagarasan is both a sour spot for the Romanians and something they can be immensely proud of. This stretch of tarmac has such magnificence and significance that the convoy of six Lamborghini Huracans, including All- and Rear-wheel-drive Coupes and Spyders, doesn’t look that impressive next to it.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Hires 400 New Employees for Urus SUV Production

Lamborghini-Urus_Concept

Well, i took five years to make the final decision and finally go ahead with a project that was a no-brainer from the get-go. We’re, of course, talking about the Lamborghini Urus SUV project which is finally shifting into production gear next year. It’s a definite go and the company has undergone a fairly large expansion to accommodate it. 

The main part of this expansion for SUV production has been hiring 400 new people for the job which brings the total of Lamborghini employees to an all-time high 1,500. Over the past decade alone the workforce of the Italian exotic maker has been doubled, a fact that speaks volume about the success of their business. From January to June 2017, deliveries to customers of the Aventador model reached 691 units (+7%). Its success is highlighted by unit number 7,000 that will be produced in the next few weeks. Same with Huracan; 1,400 units delivered in the first six months of 2017 (+2%).

Making Lamborghini Urus SUV also reacquires additional factory space and work in underway for an expansion of the production site from 80,000 m2 to 160,000 m2. Part of the expansion is the building of a new office building featuring the highest standard in the world for energy and environmental certification in construction. Of course, none of this will gurantee the success of the Urus. That would be down to the way it looks and the whether it truly is the Lamborghini of sport utility vehicles, which means whether it’s the fastest.

PostHeaderIcon This One-Off Lamborghini Aventador S Was One Of The Secret Highlights Of Goodwood

The Goodwood Festival of Speed once again lived up to its billing. What’s new, right? Classic cars, modern supercars, race cars from all generations, all of them were in attendance at the annual event. That staggering volume is a big reason why Goodwood has become a must-attend event in the auto calendar. On that note, it’s also a good place to find some noteworthy gems that may have been overshadowed by some of its peers. Take for example this one-off Lamborghini Aventador S. There was little peep about it during the run-up to the event and the whole three days that the Festival of Speed was going on. Well, that ends now because we’re giving you some love, dear Lambo.

To be specific, this one-off Lamborghini Aventador S is the work of Ad Personam, the Italian automaker’s very own personalization division. It didn’t receive any hype presumably because it was designed to stand as nothing more than a showcase of Ad Personam’s abilities, but it’s still designated as a one-off creation, meaning that there’s unlikely to be anything like it in the future. Lamborghini didn’t say if the car is going to end up for sale, but considering the motive behind its development, don’t expect to see it in the hands of a customer anytime soon. Chances are it’s going to stay with Lamborghini for the foreseeable future, possibly to serve its purpose as a showcase model of the Italian automaker’s own personalization division. Still, it looked at home at Goodwood in the company of all those cars it was with. That tells you that this one-off Aventador S should have received more attention than it did.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s Next Performance Car Could Draw Inspiration from the Legendary Miura

Is it possible that Lamborghini’s planned brand expansion is going to include a future car that will be inspired by one of its most iconic models? It’s too early to tell at this point, but Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali did tell Automotive News that the Italian automaker is open to creating a “21st-century interpretation” of the Lamborghini Miura. Now may not be the time for Lamborghini fans to lose their collective minds over this possibility, but if it does come to fruition, well, that’s a different story altogether.

The question now is whether there’s more to what Domenicali hinted at regarding the possibility of a Miura-inspired supercar being developed in time for a launch date sometime between 2025 and 2030. The former head of Ferrari’s Formula One outfit didn’t dive into the specifics, but his comments could play into the company’s plans to expand its model portfolio beyond the Avantador, Huracan, and the upcoming Urus SUV. A Miura-inspired supercar would certainly fit in with what Lamborghini intends to do with its model lineup moving forward, and just as important, it would ignite a nostalgic call-back to one of the company’s most famous models. If we do see this car in the future, expect Lamborghini to throw all its might into making sure that his 21st-century version of the Miura lives up to the legacy of the original model. That’s going to be a very high bar to meet, but Lambo wouldn’t be doing this if it doesn’t have something special in store for all of us.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini 2018 Spring Summer Collection Presented in Milan

While Ferrari relies on their motorsport heritage to sell their branded merchandise, Lamborghini has a more casual approach to the whole fashion business, as seen with their new 2018 Spring Summer Collection. The new collection, known officially as private label Collezione Automobili Lamborghini RTW Spring Summer 2018, was presented at Milano Moda Uomo.

The highlights of Lamborghini 2018 Spring Summer Collection include the iconic black leather supercar jacket with its special hexagon openwork on the sides inspired by the design of the Huracan Performante seats. Lambo also presented some really cool kicks, as well as jackets and t shirts. The event also included a road trip from Florence to Milan in which Scott Schuman, American photographer, drove an Aventador Roadster.

The Milano Moda Uomo debut of Lamborghini 2018 Spring Summer Collection was also attended by three Lambo super cars, Huracan Spyder, Huracan Performante and Aventador S, plus the classic icon, Miura SV. Besides the apparel Lamborghini also displayed at the event their range of ‘Authentic Living – Riva 1920’ furniture collection designed by Karim Rashid.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Celebrates The Production Of The 8,000th Huracán

At the rate it’s going, the Lamborghini Huracán could become the most sought-after model in Lamborghini history. It’s certainly on track to surpass the Gallardo’s record. In fact, the Italian automaker just celebrated the 8,000th unit of the Huracán to come off the production line. Making things more impressive is the fact that it only took the Huracán three years to reach 8,000 sold units. By comparison, Lamborghini sold a little over 3,000 units of the Gallardo in its first three years, according to sales reports released by Volkswagen AG.

If sales of the Huracán maintain this pace for the next seven years, it could blow the Gallardo’s sales record out of the water with a projected tally of around 26,667 units, almost double the Gallardo’s record of 14,022 units sold. Whether the Huracán gets to that number or not is going to be a matter of discussion that will be talked about in growing frequency the closer the supercar approaches that total. For now, getting to 8,000 sold units is a good reason to celebrate if you’re Lamborghini. The Italian automaker knows it had a hit on its hands when the car was launched in 2014. Good thing then that the Huracán has proven itself to be more than just that for the Raging Bull. It’s sold more than what the company presumably expected and if the superior continues its current pace, it’s going to break 10,000 units sold, possibly as soon as the next 12 months. Once it does, expect the narrative surrounding the Huracán’s pursuit of the Gallardo’s sales record to grow, if it isn’t there now already.

PostHeaderIcon Does A Carbon Fiber Body Limb Sound Like A Good Idea?

There’s no doubt Lamborghini is a pioneer in the use of carbon fiber technology. In a lot of ways, the Raging Bull can be considered as the godfather of carbon fiber. That status, coupled with the responsibility of venturing into new frontiers, is spurring Lambo to take its knowledge of carbon fiber to other industries. If everything goes as planned, we could one day see carbon fiber become the material of choice among prosthetic implants and subcutaneous devices in the medical industry.

It sounds a little too far out of reach at this point, but we learned a long time ago to never doubt Lamborghini in matters related to carbon fiber. The automaker even opened the Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory in Seattle, Washington last year to spearhead the development of new applications that can be traced back to carbon fiber. This time, it’s partnering with the Houston Methodist Research Institute to create new forms and iterations of carbon fiber that can serve as better materials than the ones being used in the medicinal industry today. Ultimately, the objective is to create prosthetics that are lighter, more durable, and tolerated better by the human body. Whether that goal is reached isn’t known yet, but if there’s one company that can see it to its completion, it’s Lamborghini. Give the company some time to research and develop this possibility and you can be sure that it’s going to yield some results.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s Fourth Model Could Arrive…In Five Years

It was only a few years ago when Lamborghini set benchmarks to sell 1,000 units per year. Times have changed since then and House Raging Bull has changed with it. Now, Lamborghini is ready to bring out the Urus SUV, it’s third current model and the ticket to carry sales to 7,000 units per year by 2018. But the Urus isn’t the end of the company’s aggressive expansion because a fourth model is on the horizon.

Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali refused to dive into great detail about the fourth Lamborghini model, telling only Car Advice that the company won’t rush into expanding to a four-model family until its current three-model lineup is stabilized. That would require a few years to get the Urus up-to-speed with market forces while helping maintain relevance for its two supercars, the Huracán and Aventador. Domenicali foresees this stability to arrive after the first wave of production, possibly around 2022 or 2023. From there, discussions of a fourth Lamborghini model could start depending on what market trends are taking place at that time. The timetable is still at least five years away, so fans of the Raging Bull shouldn’t get too excited just yet. But, it’s possibly in the cards. That’s more than what anyone could expect a few years back when exclusivity was at the height of Lambo’s priorities.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Jalpa

The Lamborghini Jalpa was a sports car produced between 1981 and 1988. A development of the Silhouette, which was discontinued alongside the Urraco in 1979, the Jalpa was Lamborghini’s entry-level sports car in the 1980s. It was slotted below the iconic Countach, being not only significantly more affordable than the supercar, but also easier to drive in heavy traffic and at slow speeds. Unlike the Countach, the Jalpa was powered by a V-8 engine. Its retirement in 1988 meant the end of the entry-level, affordable Lamborghini until the introduction of the Gallardo, in 2003.

The Jalpa was developed in Lamborghini’s most difficult period financial-wise. Affected by the 1973 financial downturn and the oil crisis, Ferruccio sold the company in 1974, only 11 years since its birth. Purchased by Georges-Henri Rossetti and Rene Leimer, Lamborghini went bankrupt in 1978 and was placed in the receivership of brothers Jean-Claude and Patrick Mimran in 1980. The Mimrans, who purchased the company out of receivership by 1984, were responsible for creating the Jalpa and the LM002 truck, two vehicles that were supposed to expand the brand’s offerings beyond V-12-powered supercars.

The Jalpa was discontinued shorty after the Chrysler Corporation bought Lamborghini from the Mimran brothers in 1987. The Jalpa was the last Lamborghini to feature a V-8 engine. Since 1988, all “Raging Bulls” had either V-12 or V-10 powerplants.

PostHeaderIcon The Lambo Huracan Performante Comes in All Sorts of Awesome Colors

If you love high-performance cars and racing (how can you not?), you’re probably dreaming about lapping the Nurburgring track in the incredible Lamborghini Huracan Performante right now. However, unless you have a fat wallet and have already placed an order, you’ll never have the chance to do that. Let’s face it, the Performante is awfully expensive for the average Joe and it’s probably sold out anyway. Fortunately, you can still design the Performante of your dreams in the online configurator and its absolutely free.

The configurator is pretty straight forward and doesn’t include too many options beyond the usual exterior and performance upgrades, but the number of exterior colors available is impressive. There are two solid colors and five metallic hues, mostly white, black, and gray. But go with the Pearl Effect range and you can get the stunning Giallo Inti, Arancio Borealis, and Verde Mantis. Beyond that, there’s a rage of custom Ad Personam finishes, including matte, solid, metallic, and pearl. Interesting choices include Giallo Horus, Verde Scandal, Viola Ophelia, Oro Elios, Blu Cepheus, and Viola SE 30th. The latter is based on the color that Lambo launched for the Diablo SE30 Jota back in the 1990s.

Naturally, all these colors are paired to the green-white-red Italian “tricolore” above the side skirts and the dark-colored “forged composite” elements such as the side skirts, diffuser, and front splitter.

Next up, you need to pick the color for the carbon-ceramic brakes, and you can choose between six caliper finishes. There’s black, green, orange, red, silver, and yellow, each providing interesting contrasts with several body colors. Since I “painted” my Performante in Verde Mantis, I went with red calipers, since red and green are complementary colors.

As soon as you finish up the calipers, the configurator moves on to the rims. All wheels measure 20 inches, but there are three design with various finishes. The double-five-spoke rims are called Mimas and can be had in either silver, gloss black or matte titanium. The multi-spoke Narvi wheels are available in either high-sheen black or bronze, while the five-spoke, forged Loge wheels are black and come with either black or red center locking nut. The latter seems to go well with the red calipers on my build.

The configurator then moves onto technology, where you can choose whether you want a sensor or sensor plus camera for park assistance. You can also select the Style Package, which adds darker exhaust pipes among other features.
