50th Anniversary Lamborghini Event

LamborghiniGrandeTour1

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary in style, and that includes a gathering of 350 ‘raging bull’ branded cars, which would take the tour starting from Milan up until Bologna, the end-point being the headquarters of Lamborghini! You know what, not all Lamborghinis were welcomed to join its 50th Anniversary Grand Tour. The brand had allowed only the modern and vintage model entry, that too with a valid license plate.

Thanks to the filtering, the fleet of supercars from the brand has been an interesting mix: 350 GTs, 400 GTs, Miuras, Espadas, Jaramas, Urracos, Countaches, LM 002, Diablos and Murcielagos. The five-day long tour from May 7 to May 11 would pass through breathtaking landscapes of Lombardia, Toscana, Lazio, Umbria and Emilia Romagna, stopping over in Forte Dei Marmi, Grosseto, Roma, San Giustino Valdarno and Bologna, where they will arrive on May 10.

So many beautiful machines in this event, out of the 350 beautiful Italian machines participating there are a few that are participating from Kuwait. How much better could it get to have a high speed escort across Italy being led by a Lamborghini Police Car. I spot four cars from Kuwait in the video, three together in the middle of the video and one orange one towards the 3/4’s of the video. So many beautiful colors, and some of the machines are a bit over the top but still fun, loved the sound of the exhausts in the video.

2013 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Unveiled in Miami

Now this mean looking machine looks even better as a roadster, I really like the Aventador, it is an Italian marvel. The roadster version looks really good, gives it this sexy look. They shut down the highways for this parade, plus they took one runway from the Miami Airport and took off down the runway, now thats something that I want to try.

Bugatti Veyron vs Lamborghini Aventador vs Lexus LFA vs McLaren MP4-12C

This is just a ridiculous race that just has to be seen, I for one am not a fan of Bugatti Veyron. As for the other machine, I’m much more of a fan of the other cars. There were a few surprises for me during this drag race, but it isn’t always about the straight line, some of these machines perform very differently on the track.

Aventador J – A Sports Bike Built For Two

I do love when companies build machines totally out of passion for the machine and not the ecomonics behind it. This is Lamborghini Aventador J is made from pure passion and you look like you are getting into a jet fighter hybrid about to take off, flying cars from the future should look like this. It has the same guts as the LP 700-4 but Navigation.. Gone, Climate Control.. Gone, and they tried to make it as light as possible. Surprisingly this machine is or was up for sale, and it sold for 2.1 Million Euros, if I had that kind of money I would have bought it and to the lucky guy enjoy. This machine is a one off, none will be made other then this one.

A ton of different kinds of machines coming around this time of year and some of them are really modified and ready for the track, everyone is taking this seriously and each year the caliber of cars and drivers just keeps going up. The car show is always entertaining at 360 Mall especially so many machines are on display especially the ones that are supposed to be indoors.

Liberty Walk In Japan

The Japanese are known for being organized and uniform or extreme, never in the middle, some people conform and some go the extreme. Wataru Kato is the owner of this very cool garage out of Japan that build some of the craziest exotic cars with one main purpose in mind, fun!

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – A Thing Of Beauty

I was passing by Shuweikh the other day and decided to pass by Audi to check out the S8 only to spot an Aventador parked in the lobby. So I walked over to the other side to see a mean Stealth Grey Aventador parked right in front of me, I always thought it was a beautiful machine, but pictures do not do it justice at all, it is a completely different creature when you see it in front of you.

It is extreme in its design and its performance, uncompromising in its standards and technology, and unmistakably Italian in its style and perfection. This machine looks like its speeding while parked in that showroom, then I got a sneak peak to see one getting prepared for his owner, Mashalla mashalla I was in awe. I loved the machine in both Stealth Grey and the lovely hue of Orange.

Is 0-62 Mph in 2.9 seconds fast enough? Well thats what the Aventador can do and thats even faster then a lot of bikes. And when I sat inside that cockpit I felt like I was about to go to warp speed, so after Lamborghini builds these machines they will build the Star Trek Enterprise, when your sitting inside the vehicle you feel like you are inside a Jet Fighter which is ready to fly into space. Technology has been infused into this machine perfectly the driver digital display feels like something out of Minority Report, completely digital and changes to what you need, all I needed was to start the turbines, adjust the flaps, and I fly out. And yes I started the car and I was about to drool, I was already mesmerized by the way it looks and the sound just took it to another level.

Lamborghini Gallardo 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale

Looking rather fetching in its flawless coat of Rosso Mars paint, which the automaker proudly claims recognizes Italy’s famous red racing cars, this latest version of Lambo’s V10-powered supercar is based on the LP570-4 Blancpain Edition that was unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show. That means it weighs 2,954 pounds and makes good use of its 570 horsepower to hit 0-62 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds. That massive rear spoiler is manually adjustable to help keep the wheels on the ground, and both it and the car’s hood are crafted from carbon fiber. Lamborghini will happily plaster the interior with carbon goodness in place of the standard black and red motif, surely for an extra charge.

Now Lamborghini have done it again making one very sexy looking machine with the Super Trofeo Stradale Gallardo. Only 150 of these special Gallardos are earmarked for production, in either the aforementioned red hue or, optionally, in Grigio Telesto or Bianco Monocerus. They keep improving these lovely machines and with that massive rear spoiler I don’t know how it handle on the track but it has a sexy rear end to it.

Reiter Lamborghini LP600+

There is something very menacing about this machine and I like it, the lines of the LP560 look very nice with a setup such as this. The LP560 is an already capable vehicle but the Reiter version is stripped down to the core producing more then 600 horsepower and completely track ready. And Reiter have won a lot of races in their time with Lamborghinis so they know how to setup this car, roll cage, racing seat, and the right components to keep you glued to the seat and flying on the track.
