Ultra-rare Lamborghini LM002 sells for $390,000

The Lamborghini LM002 was the most outrageous, fastest, and meanest four-wheel drive on the planet between 1986 and 1992. The latest to sell, courtesy of RM Sotheby's, has a price on-par with what you'd pay for a current Urus. Using history as a guide, we were expecting the car to sell for around US$500,000 ($650,000)...

Lamborghini: Urus will double global sales by Q4 2019

The Lamborghini Urus is a straight-up game changer. Not only is it the first-ever super sport utility vehicle, it also enters the market as the fastest SUV with an internal-combustion engine. Under its arrow-head-edged bonnet lies a mighty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 (each of the turbos are also twin-scroll units) making 485kW of power and 850Nm of torque, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission...

Lamborghini Urus: It's important to be the fastest and the first

More than five-and-a-half years has passed since Italy's most outrageous supercar manufacturer, Lamborghini, presented its striking SUV concept, the Urus (pronounced Ooo-rus). The production version (still called Urus) had its Australian reveal this week, and true to form, it looks almost as good as the original concept. Frankly, we'd be worried if it didn't...

2018 Lamborghini Urus pricing and specs

Local details for the Lamborghini Urus have been announced this week, with the new SUV to be priced from $390,000 before on-road costs in Australia. Key specifications include the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 living under the bonnet, developing a healthy 478kW of power and 850Nm of torque...

Lamborghini to stick with naturally-aspirated engines, prefers hybrid to turbo

Lamborghini would rather go down the path of hybrid powertrains to maintain the emotional appeal of its engine noise, rather than following everyone else with their turbocharged V8s. Speaking to the CarAdvice at the Geneva motor show this week, Lamborghini chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, admitted the company was forced to go turbo in the Urus, but said the Huracan and Aventador replacements will be naturally aspirated for as long as possible...

Lamborghini: Electric power not suitable

Its rivals might be going down a fully-electric patch – think Porsche and the Mission E – but Lamborghini thinks battery-powered technology doesn’t currently gel with its brand characteristics. Speaking to media at the Geneva motor show this week, chief technical officer for Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani, confirmed the brand looked at Porsche's electric platform and ruled out using it because of performance issues...

Lamborghini Aventador 'Performante' spied

A heavily-camouflaged Lamborghini Aventador has been snapped with a Huracan Performante-style aerodynamics package, suggesting a more track-focused flagship Bull could be on the way. These images show a (very heavily) camouflaged Aventador wearing a striking new rear wing and diffuser...

2018 Kia Cerato takes on... a Lamborghini Aventador?

In one of the more creative marketing campaigns we've seen, Kia's North American arm has decided to pit the new Forte (2018 Cerato) against "one of the fastest, flashiest, most coveted sports cars ever", the Lamborghini Aventador. Despite the comparison being held at a race track, much of the focus is on both vehicles at a standstill - very clever indeed...
