2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo – North American Delivery –

2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo – North American Delivery –

Lamborghini’s one-make racing series, the Blancpain Super Trofeo, is on for a new season, and it once again includes a leg exclusive to the North American continent. This time around there’s an all-new car competing, the Huracán LP 620-2, and the first of the 2015-spec cars for the North American Super Trofeo series touched down at Nevada’s Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch last week, where top photographer Jordan Shiraki was able to capture all of the magic.

Competitors descended upon the track to view and collect their cars for the season, with Lamborghini Squadra Corse (the automaker’s burgeoning motorsports division) officials on hand to provide technical training sessions on the nuances of the new race car and help teams prepare for the season opener at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca starting May 1.

As previously reported, the Huracán LP 620-2 is closely related to the Huracán LP 610-4 road car but has slightly more power from its 5.2-liter V-10 (611 versus 601 hp), less weight, a sequential gearbox and only rear-wheel drive. The car was developed by the Squadra Corse together with chassis expert Dallara and should perform significantly better than the Gallardo LP 570-4 race car it replaces.

Because of this, competition in the series is divided into two classes this season: one featuring the Huracán-based car and the other featuring the previous Gallardo racer. Lamborghini tells us that there are more teams than ever this season, which is only the third for the North American Super Trofeo (the others are in Europe and Asia).

“The series has really matured in only its third year of the North American championship,” last year’s North American winner and winner in the Pro-Am class of the world final event, Kevin Conway, said in a statement. “There are several new teams and returning teams alike that have very strong driver lineups.”

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

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

 

2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466226_h

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.

2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466221_h

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.

2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466225_h2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466234_h2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466221_h2015-lamborghini-huracn-first-drive_100466229_h

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.

Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato number 2 out of 5

Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato number 2 out of 5

zagato-595-yellow1-1

Unless you live in one of the supercar capitals of the world, seeing a Lamborghini on the street is a rare opportunity. Even the Gallardo, of which Lamborghini produced over 14,000 to go down as the most prolific Raging Bull in the marque’s history, is still far from an everyday sight. But at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este a few months ago – just shortly after the reveal of the new Huracán – Zagato presented an even more exotic version of the Gallardo.

1239111_665250106903884_4071162687303248933_o

It’s called the 5-95, and if features substantially overhauled coachwork that contemporizes the Raptor concept which the two Italian firms presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1996. Rumors immediately began to circulate that Zagato would build a short run of these rebodied Gallardos, and here we have the evidence: the second 5-95, pictured at the Zagato factory in Milan.zagato-595-yellow0a-1 (1)

Wearing a more Lamborghini-like pearl yellow paintjob, this second of five 5-95s said to be in the pipeline looks more akin to the Calà concept of 1995 designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign. There’s no telling who the customer is or how much he paid to get his hands on this rare bull, but you can bet it cost considerably more than a Gallardo or Huracán, even with the premiums customers are said to be paying for them these days.

A partnership between Lamborghini and Zagato that dates back to 1965, when the Italian design house built a pair of special 3500 GTZ models on the bones of Lamborghini’s first model, the 350 GT, has just seen a new chapter written. That chapter is the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato, which made its debut over the weekend at the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy.

lamborghini-5-95-zagato-2014-concorso-deleganza-villa-deste_100468111_l

The one-off supercar, based on Lamborghini Gallardo underpinnings, was commissioned by collector Albert Spiess and not only shows off Zagato’s coachbuilding talents but also celebrates the firm’s 95th anniversary this year. Spiess, who was on hand at the Lake Como event where the car was presented, is a huge Lamborghini fan but he also owns a number of Zagato models such as the 1985 Aston Martin V8 Zagato, 1990 Alfa Romeo S.Z. and 2012 Aston Martin V12 Zagato.

lamborghini-5-95-zagato-2014-concorso-deleganza-villa-deste_100468109_l

For the latest Lamborghini 5-95, Zagato designers modified the body of a donor Gallardo LP570-4 following principles of “functionalism and rationalism.”

On the front end a floating spoiler takes inspiration from the Lamborghini Raptor Zagato from 1996, coming to a firewall in carbon fiber that conceals the front airintakes. The pillars have been painted black to give the car a floating roof appearance, and the side intakes, following the Lamborghini Raptor once again, have been visually reduced to the minimum thanks to an air scoop on the roof as well as additional apertures concealed in the glass surfaces.

lamborghini-5-95-zagato-2014-concorso-deleganza-villa-deste_100468108_l

A new air scoop is functionally integrated with the double bubble roof, a signature of Zagato design, directing the cooling to the intake manifold. Finally, at the rear, there is a truncated tail section to give the car a sportier profile—the designers aimed to press the rear towards the engine and to increase the proportion of the front. A new grille allows onlookers to view the mechanicals.

No changes have been made to the mechanicals, which means power still comes from a 5.2-liter V-10 rated at 562 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. With power going to all four wheels, the 5-95 Zagato should be able to hit 60 mph in just over 3.0 seconds and keep accelerating to about 200 mph. As the video from Marchettino confirms, it also sounds quite brutal.

“I always appreciated the ability of Zagato to create timeless lines with a forceful visual impact,” the car’s owner Albert Spiess said. “I believe that a sensual design inspired by nature, together with the best technology, strike a perfect balance that is possible to achieve only in Italy—the 5-95 will be a fundamental piece of my collection.”

The top 10 most expensive cars in the world

The top 10 most expensive cars in the world

By Peter Braun 

Buying a car is a simple process. You go to the dealership, pick out the one you want, and the let the haggling over the doormats and the undercoating commence.
The cars on this list, though, are a little different. Take the gorgeous new Ferrari LaFerrari. Even if you do happen to have a spare $1.13 million lying around, don’t bother calling your Ferrari dealer. If Ferrari thinks you deserve of one its 499 masterpieces, it will call and offer the privilege of such a masterpiece to you.
That’s what sets these dream cars apart, and makes this list of the world’s top ten great cars a bit special.
Let’s face it; we may never see one of these cars in the flesh – let alone own one – but that’s true of the Mona Lisa, too. And that doesn’t stop people traveling around the world to see her.
These cars are more than just insane pieces of engineering capable of transporting you to 60 mph faster than lightning striking a cheetah; they are cultural treasures.
Just a heads up, we’ve excluded classic cars that are being sold at auctions and are widely unavailable. So don’t expect to see Steve McQueen’s Mustang from Bullitt on here.

 

 

10. Porsche 918 Spyder $845,000

porsche-918-spyder-front34

At just shy of one million dollars, the Porsche 918 Spyder would rarely be considered cheap – even relatively speaking. But on this list, it’s a bargain.

What makes the 918 special, though, is not the price, it’s that the 918 Spyder comes from the future. That’s right. It’s a hybrid.  Don’t for a second think the 918 Spyder is a poor sad Prius hobbling along in the right lane, because this bad boy has 887 horsepower, which is good for 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

For comparison, that’s faster than the money you’ll have to plunk down for this thing can leave your bank account.
But don’t worry; you will save on gas; because this Teutonic thunderbolt can go 18 miles on the lightning in its batteries alone – and still pull 82 mpg in hybrid mode. That is, as long as your commute doesn’t take you around the Nürburgring. Which it should, by the way.

9. McLaren P1 $1.1M

191259271_1393348246

From the same manufacturer as the legendary F1, the P1 might just live up the insane legacy of the first 230 mph production car.

Lurking underneath the carbon fiber is a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 which when paired with the onboard electric motor is good for 903 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. The right way to think about this isn’t even as a hybrid, but like a roadgoing Formula 1 car with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System. This will help you get over the fact that you can only get 9 miles on the battery.

Straight ahead speed isn’t quite as lunatic as it was on the F1, with the top speed limited to a measly 217 mph. But it will get you to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, and make it from 0-182 in 16.5 seconds, twice as fast as Ferrari 458 Italia. It will  also grip and brake like the amazing Spiderman on PEDs.

McLaren has gone all out on the quality control, when engineers test the waterproof seals the car  is doused in nearly 4,000 gallons of water.

If you want one, act now because they just went into production and most of the 375 are spoken for.

9. Hennessey Venom GT $1.1M

Hennessey Venom GT

The engineers over at Hennessey may need a little less testosterone and a little more Thorazine. That hasn’t stopped them, though, from achieving something that most physicists consider impossible. This little company has produced the fastest ever production car, capable of 271 mph.

They say everything is bigger in Texas and the Lone Star State-based tuning house is happy to that statement correct.

The Venom GT is filled with enough horsepower to stretch across the Lone Star State itself, packing a mind-blowing 1,500 horsepower mined from a poisonous 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. 0-60 is pegged at two seconds. The riotous acceleration doesn’t end there, though, the Venom claims a top speed of 287 mph.
If the CERN particle accelerator keeps having trouble they might just think about driving a Venom GT around it instead.

At just $1.1 million this car is almost a bargain considering it can out strip everything on this list, except maybe: the mighty Koenigsegg One:1.

8. Zenvo ST1 $1.2M

2009 Zenvo ST1

Denmark may only be known for its massive butter consumption and as the setting of Hamlet. But the Zenovo ST1 is definitely ‘to be.’

Well, only three of them will actually ‘be.’ Apparently because they need to be hand carved from adamantium and Thor’s hammer.

The results though are impressive, the ST1 is propelled by a turbo supercharged 7.0-liter V8, which might have been nicked off of a P-38 Lightning. This monster powerplant is good for a top speed of 233 mph and a 0-60 time south of three seconds.

Unfortunately for the mighty Dane, its initial exhibitions have not gone well. It nearly killed Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear by setting him on fire and then didn’t even go that fast.
No wonder it looks so angry. Don’t count the ST1 out yet though, because Zenvo is hard at work.

7. Maybach Landaulet $1.25M

Maybach Landaulet

Monarchs and rappers can rest easy, because this next car may have been designed for them. It’snot  as fast as the other cars on this list, but it does come with far more appointments and luxuries.

For $1.3 million dollars, you get a hermetically sealed chauffeur compartment, which will isolate you from the commoner you have employed to drive you about. You also get a fully retractable roof which allows you to wave to your adoring subjects as you drive by.
When you tire of such attention you can open up your refrigerator and pull out a bottle of Crystal or the distilled blood of a pope and relax.

Presumably the button that says, “guards seize him” is an optional extra.  

6. Ferrari La Ferrari $1.3M

Ferrari La Ferrari
LaFerrari
Italian for ‘the Ferrari,” the Ferrari the Ferrari’s name might be a bit silly. But the everything else is absolutely spectacular.

In true Italian fashion, at the heart of this stallion is a V12. By itself, this mighty heart pumps out 789 horsepower. But if you hit the defibrillator and electrocute that sucker, with the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), you can get up to 950 hp.

Because this thing weighs rather a lot less than your average Ford Focus, the tidal wave of power will drive you to 120 mph in less than seven seconds; faster than most cars can get you to 60 mph.

If Ferrari hasn’t already called to offer you one of the 499 LaFerraris it has built, you are out luck. You are just going to have to look for one secondhand on the Dubai Craigslist.

6. Pagani Huayra $1.3M

Pagani Huayra

Welcome to the best car that no one can pronounce. Named for the Incan “God of Winds,” the Huayra’s (why-rah) offers performance that a deity would be envious of.
Powered by an AMG 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, the Huayra is good for 230 mph. And at 740 lb-ft, more torque than your average pantheon.

Styling is very Pagani. The car boasts gullwing doors, the patented Pagani antenna/side mirrors and some of the best leatherwork you will ever see.

For the low, low price of $1.3 million, this car is such a bargain you might want to buy two.

5. Lamborghini Reventon $1.61M

Lamborghini Reventon

The Reventon is truly a stealth fighter for the road, even if those looks would attract more attention than Kate Upton wandering into a middle school.
This Lambo’s name and personality both come from a famed Spanish fighting bull that killed an equally legendary bullfighter.
Drivers might be in just as much trouble when they strap into this 650 hp rocket. It has purportedly topped 220 mph in Dubai and will do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. Oley!
Along with all this performance, you get one of the coolest supercar interiors out there. If it weren’t for the Lamborghini badges, you would be convinced that you are in an F-22 Raptor.
At $1.6 million the Reventon is the second most expensive Lamborghini behind the ultra-rare Veneno, not including the track-only Sesto Elemento ($2.2M) and the concept Aventador J ($2.8M).

4. Aston Martin One-77 $1.8M

Aston Martin One-77

$1.8 million can get you a lot of stuff. You could buy a couple of nice houses or 450,000 pounds of bacon. But it can also get you exactly one Aston Martin One-77.
The British supercar comes packing a 7.3-liter V12 engine that ever so politely doles out 750 hp and 533 lb-ft. Top speed is clocked at 220 mph while a 0-60 sprint takes 3.4 seconds.
The One-77 is the ultimate expression of the refined supercar. This is not for the lead singer of future Metallicas, but for a particularly discrete and tasteful Saudi Prince – or perhaps James Bond.

Yes, $1.8 million is a lot to ask. But when you’re Aston Martin, and only building 77 examples of the car, it’s par for the course.

4. Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster $1.8M

Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster

Unfortunately, the Aston Martin One-77 has to share fourth place with another car. Fortunately, that car is the Zonda Cinque Roadster, made by Italian boutique automaker Pagani.

So why should you pay half a million more for a Zonda than Pagani’s newer car the Huyara? For starters, the Zonda Cinque is made out of the most awesome materials known to man: carbon fiber and titanium. This makes it stronger and lighter than Delta Force. Seriously, it weighs less than a Mini Cooper but has an AMG V12 that produces 678 hp.
That makes this cabrio capable of 210+ mph and eye-popping – perhaps literally – track speeds.

Oh, and Pagani only built five of them, so happy hunting.

4. Koenigsegg One:1. $2.0M

Koenigsegg One1

When it comes to the car world, Koenigsegg has been the crazy uncle off in the corner doing its own thing. Well that business model has really paid off because it has just achieved a very impressive automotive first, a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio in a road car.

This insane machine weighs just 1,340 kilograms and puts out 1,340 horsepower. And that weight includes a full complement of fluids and an average driver. This should make the One:1 the fastest accelerating car – and possibly plane – that money can buy. What do I mean? I mean 0 to 250 mph in under twenty seconds and a claimed potential top speed of 273 mph or more.

In short, there might be more luxurious cars on this list, but there is none that can hold a candle in raw performance. 

2. Mansory Vivre: Bugatti Veyron. $3.4M

Mansory Vivre

The Bugatti Veyron is getting to that point in its life where it can wax reflective and nostalgic. That’s where the Legend Meo Constantini comes in. Built to commemorate friend of Bugatti founder, and two-time winner of the Targa Folorio, in a Bugatti 35.

Constantini was just the sort of aristocratic whack-job that made early motor racing great, so its appropriate that Bugatti honored him with such a mental car. 

Underneath the Legend is a Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster. It draws a hyper-godly 1,200 hp from its W16. This is good for a top speed of 254 mph. It might be a bit slower than the Veyron Super Sport, but it’s much prettier. The carbon fiber is painted French Racing Blue, and the aluminum is left to its own burnished glory. Maps of the Targa Florio and other racing scenes are laser etched in both the exterior and interior. This isn’t just a face melting speed machine, its also a work of art.

2. W Motors Lykan Hypersport $3.4M

W Motors Lykan-HyperSport

Didn’t know that Lebanon had a car industry? Then you are missing out, because the W Motors’ Lykan Hypersport is one of the most impressive things on four wheels.
Not many details are out about this car yet, but it is purportedly good for 245 mph, and a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds. Amazingly, this acceleration comes courtesy of a turbocharged V6, which, compared to some of the mammoth V12s sported by cars on this list, seems positively demure.

If those performance figures don’t jump off the page, don’t worry the Lykan Hypersport has an ace up its sleeve. W Motors didn’t just focus on performance, they have the tech madness and sheer excess side of hypercars covered.  Those handsomely aggressive LED lights are covered in diamonds, and the information about how far over the speed limit you are going is conveyed by a holographic display.
All I can say is, “Help me Lykan Hypersport, you are my only hope.”

1. Lamborghini Veneno $4M

Lamborghini veneno roadster 1

We should have expected something this mad for Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, but somehow we were still surprised. The Veneno is simply jaw-dropping.
It may not be the most beautiful supercar, but it is still one of the coolest. I still have to remind myself that I am actually looking at photos of it rather than a concept drawing or a computer generation.

But the Veneno isn’t all looks and no go. The name is Spanish for “poison” and boy is that appropriate. The naturally aspirated V12 – because turbos are for sissies – hammers out 750 horsepower. This Italian thunderclap will bring to 60 in 2.8 seconds, probably faster than sound can leave your body during a terrified scream.
The big wing on the back is encouraging. Either it will help keep the car on the road or it means that the Veneno is in accordance with FAA regulations, which is good until you realize that means it was designed to fly. Gulp.

It gets better too, because Lambo has recently gone ahead with a convertible version. The “poison” Spyder is just as fast, and even more mental. With speeds approaching 220 mph in an open top car, lets just say you are going to need goggles.

Even the batmobile looks tame in comparison to the Veneno and it probably costs less too.
Want one? That’s a silly question. Of course you do. Unfortunately, the three hard tops are already spoken for, but there will be nine roadsters. They may cost an extra half million dollars, but for something like this thats almost a bargain.

And hey we can all dream. After all, that’s the point of this list.

Honorable Mentions:

Rolls-Royce Celestial: Price Unknown

Rolls-Royce Celestial

A regular Rolls-Royce Phantom might be a bit declasse for this list, but the one of Celestial is a a bit more special. Why you ask? It has 446 diamonds inset into its interior. Also the headliner lights up with thousands of hand woven fiber optics to recreate the night sky from the moment the first Phantom was delivered. This breathtaking display of opulence and excess was designed for the Dubai International Motor Show, and isn’t for sale yet so thats why it doesn’t make the list.
However, any car that features enough diamonds to start an African civil war – honestly we hope these aren’t blood diamonds – isn’t likely to be cheap.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento $2.2M

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

Italian for “sixth element” the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento isn’t even out yet and of the 20 being made, all are already spoken for. Sorry.
The other bad news: it’s not street legal in the U.S., meaning those folks in ‘Merica who were fortunate enough to front the $2.2M bill can only enjoy them on the track. Oh, too bad!

1963 Ferrari 250 GTO $52M

1963 Ferrari 250 GTO
1963 Ferrari 250 GTO sells for $52 million
With its recent sale price of $52 million, it seems like the 1963 Ferarri 250 GTO ought to top out on this list. But it winds up as an honorable mention because you can’t actually buy one; it’s not just that you can’t afford it; there are none for sale.
So how does this 50-year-old Italian stallion come to cost more than some countries? Well, for starters there are only 39 of them. So they are quite rare.
Also each one is a bit different. They are handcrafted – and not in the modern sense in that some technician carefully screwed together some 3D-printed componentslBut rather in the sense of an actual florid Italian hand hammering the gorgeous aluminum bodywork.
They say that the Ferrari godfather, Enzo, had these built in response to the sublime Jaguar E-type. And while he may not have beat jag on production, $52 million might just be enough to buy all the Jaguar E-types left in the world.

2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 in Miami Florida

2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 in Miami Florida

Huracán

Here and there in the world, there are a few Lamborghini Huracáns LP610-4. They’re all used for customer introductions and slowly but surely the official introduction on the Geneva Motor Show. This show will take place in two weeks. Lamborghini already told us that the private introductions were a big success because they already sold up to 700 Huracáns. Today we received some photos of an uncamouflaged Huracán in Miami.

Huracán2

Yesterday, a camouflaged model was spotted but now we have some photos without camouflage for you. It might not be the best photos we’ve seen until now but they definitely show what the Huracán will look like on the streets. The 610 hp strong Italian might be used for some last-minute testing by Lamborghini. The first deliveries will take place in the spring. Tuesday 4 March at 08:00, the Huracán will be officially introduced on the Geneva Motor Show.

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.
