Lamborghini Huracán Hits 1,000 U.S. Sales – 3,000 Global

Lamborghini Huracán Hits 1,000 U.S. Sales – 3,000 Global

If you had any questions about the success of Lamborghini’s Huracán as a replacement for the Gallardo—which you really wouldn’t have if you’d read our first drive review—you’ll have none now: the Huracán has officially racked up 1,000 U.S. sales and 3,000 global sales in just 10 months.

The result is enough for Lamborghini itself to crow about, and rightfully so—the 3,000 figure is one that brand hasn’t seen in the entire 2000-2012 period, making this Lamborghini’s best year this century. In 2013, Lamborghini marked the sale of just 2,121 cars, well short of its previous record mark of 2,406 units in 2008.

For 2014, the company is on pace to reach 3,600 total sales, though whether the supercar market will hold up—or rise—before year’s end is anyone’s guess. 

Lamborghini thinks this year’s success is about more than just a brutally handsome pair of cars in the Huracán and the Aventador, however.

The company’s COO, Alessandro Farmeschi, said in a statement, “In the Americas we worked together with our dealer partners to outline their launch outreach strategy from a new perspective. How to make their events and communications bold yet welcoming. As a result, we are watching a success story unfold. As the Huracán arrives in-market, consumers are anxiously waiting to experience this vehicle which is a direct result of these targeted events.”

Whatever the reason, it’s hard to argue with the success in terms of cars sold—and for the enthusiast, it’s always a good thing to see supercar brands succeed.

Liberty Walk’s Road To SEMA Starts NowLiberty Walk’s Road To SEMA Starts Now

 

Liberty Walk’s Road To SEMA Starts Now

LB-Aventador-1wm

by Dino Dalle Carbonare

What’s next? I’m pretty sure that’s a question that Kato-san of Liberty Walk must be very tired of answering by now. Mind you, it comes with the territory, because there aren’t many workshops around the world that would even dare to do what the Japanese custom car builder has become known for. So if you’re wondering what car is next in line to receive the LB-Works treatment, well, here it is…

LB-Aventador-4wm

Liberty Walk has already worked on the Lamborghini Aventador, and if you recall back to last year’s Tokyo Auto Salon you might remember its creation that Sean and I took a look at in detail after the show ended. The body kit on that particular car could be considered an entry-level upgrade, but that was never going to cut it for Kato-san. So along with a tantalising line up of other cars planned for the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in November, he also plans to bring a fiery-red LB-Works version of the Aventador with him too.

LB-Aventador-3wm

As you can see in these initial CG images, Liberty Walk’s take on Lamborghini’s flagship machine will be sporting front and rear Works fenders applied to the body with exposed bolts for the raw look that makes these conversions all the more special. A large GT wing will also be added at the rear, supported by a pair of stays fixed to the body through cut-outs in the center-section of the bumper.

Along with a front spoiler, the conversion will also feature more profiled side skirts and a rear diffuser section, and very aggressive wheel fitment. SEMA might still be months away, but Liberty Walk is wasting no time in ensuring that its display will be the talk of the show once again.

FAIL: Porsche 911 Turbo S – Crazy Expensive at $210,620

FAIL: Porsche 911 Turbo S – Crazy Expensive at $210,620

PORSCHE NEW PRICE FAIL

We think Porsche bit off their foot by expecting buyers to pay over 200k on a car that hasn’t been updated in 10 years or so.

They always exclude themselves but this time they are totally off base.

Oh yes, we love the look and feel of the Porsche but it was hard to look at over $150,000.00  and that’s just for the 911 Turbo.

When we compare apples with apples, the price doesn’t match up.

Consider what you could buy for that range – it doesn’t compare – if you just look at the technology in the Mercedes Benz SLS the Porsche can’t compete. 

· Ferrari 458 Speciale

· Ferrari California

· Lamborghini Hurricane

· McLaren 650S

· Rolls-Royce Wraith

· Bentley Continental GTC

· Any Aston Martin including the Vanquish

· Any Maserati

· Almost Qty 2 Audi R8

· Any BMW

· Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Please understand that we have nothing against Porsche, but we do believe in fairness and Porsche is crazy with what they believed their car is worth. It’s not the 80’s, you have to push out new and better things, not pull the wool over our eyes and try to sell us the same thing for more money. That’s just not right.

So I guess we won’t be buying a Porsche anytime soon. The Lamborghini Hurricane looks like a much better deal on our side. “Sorry Porsche”

Hamann Lamborghini Aventador Limited

Hamann Lamborghini Aventador Limited

01-hamann-aventador-limited-geneva-1

The tuners at Hamann have gotten their hands on the Lamborghini Aventador and are offering a suite of stealthy upgrades and a boost in power for buyers who don’t think Lambo’s top model is already enough. The company wants to create a special model with “uniqueness in every way.”

The Limited wears a two-tone body kit in Stealth Grey matte paint with Poison Green trim. Hamann adds carbon fiber pieces with new air vent inserts at the front, a two-piece front spoiler and side skirts. The rear receives carbon fiber replacements for the diffuser, engine air intake, spoiler and apron. It is also offering two different sport exhausts – a standard version and a race version… complete with backfire baked in. Finally, the custom Lamborghini is shod with forged, aluminum wheels that are 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the rear. The interior remains basically stock except for being covered in green leather and contrasting black with green stitching.

Hamann isn’t just about style. It is also giving the Limited a boost in performance to 760 horsepower and 542 pound-feet thanks to a few tweaks of the Aventador’s software. It seems that if Lamborghini isn’t giving buyers enough, then Hamann is happy to take things to the extreme at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Press Release

Hamann has taken the bull by the horns and puts the ultimate finish on one of the most striking and powerful sports cars of all time. Even more uncompromising, even more spectacular: the independent body concept of the factory in Swabian Laupheim has turned the martial Lamborghini Aventador into a personalized masterpiece – with unique design details and an impressive increase in power of almost ten per cent.
The leitmotif of the Hamann “Limited” is uniqueness in every way. The front boasts custom-made carbon air vent inserts. The optical counterpart of the lightweight nostrils is the two-piece front spoiler made of the same high strength racing material, which provides for racing grade down force and gives the front wheels increased grip. To optimize the aerodynamics, the new eye-catching side skirts help calm the airflow on the underside.
The greatest optimisation requirement for motorsport specialist Hamann was at the rear of the Aventador. The redesigned features were thus particularly extensive here. Hamann replaced the rear apron and rear diffuser with their own designs and constructions made of ultra-lightweight carbon fibre. The adjustable rear spoiler is made of the same material, as well. Hamann also developed the sport final muffler specifically for the “Limited.” There is also a special race version available with backfire.
The voluminous air intake slots on the engine compartment lid supply the huge twelve-cylinder unit with plenty of cool air. Here, Hamann has integrated very high quality clear-coated carbon fibre, which allows a clear view of the Lamborghini power package.
Highlights of the customised Aventador are the alloy wheels, which go perfectly with its new look. The multi-part Hamann “Professional” is produced by a forging process, which guarantees maximum driving dynamics through lightness and the highest level of stiffness. The high-performance wheels in sizes 9×20 and 13×21 inch bear ultra-high-performance tyres in sizes 255/30 ZR 20 in front and 355/25 ZR 21 in the back.
The specialists of Hamann push the performance of the potent Italian to new heights. 700 hp (515 kW) and 690 Nm were the numbers to beat – and that’s what motor racing professional Hamann clearly managed to do. The completely redesigned software of the control unit of the twelve-cylinder in the “Limited” now reaches 760 hp (559 kW). The maximum torque of the 6.5-liter V12 increases with the identity field optimisation to a raging 735 Nm*.
Hamann presents the first “Limited Lambo” in the special matt grey paint “Stealth Grey” – and “poison” green contrasted body details. And Hamann fulfils every customer desire imaginable. The highest manufacturing quality and selected materials have been the benchmark at Hamann for over 28 years.
A special hue also makes the interior unmistakable: the three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel is trimmed in green leather on the top and bottom. Intricately stitched applications on the instrument panel, the side panels and the centre console correspond excellently with other features, such the instrument panel cover and the seat tracks of the exclusive, high-speed sports seats.
