Lamborghini was not always thought of as the ideal supercar. It was derided for poor reliability and being hard to live with, but in 2003 when the Gallardo arrived (for the 2004 model year), it made owning a Lamborghini much easier. The Gallardo was the first sub-flagship model since the Lamborghini Jalpa (produced between 1981 and 1988), but the Gallardo was a far more competent vehicle and gave buyers a more affordable choice to the flagship Murcielago and subsequent Aventador. … [Read more...] about Last Gallardo Built Marks End to Lamborghini’s Most Successful Supercar
"For almost a decade, the Murciélago was the icon of the Lamborghini brand, and it was enormously successful in the process," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

The hypercar gets an 8.0-litre 16-cylinder engine which packs in a punch with more than 1600 horsepower on offer.

The Edition Noire Sportive sees the Chiron get a ton of black enhancements which add to the sportiness of the car. There are the matte black finish covers and the matte black on the front spoiler, radiator grille and even the wheels. The black finish is even infact on the quad-exhaust that the Chiron boasts of.

Construction of the unique vehicle took approximately one and a half years. The body shell first went through the corrosion protection and painting process applied to today’s series-production vehicles. It then was assembled and tuned by Porsche Classic specialists at the Porsche Classic restoration workshop near Stuttgart. A brand new 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine developing 450 hp was installed, delivering performance similar to that which a 993-generation Turbo S vehicle would have had when it was in production. The manual transmission and all-wheel drive components were also sourced from the Porsche Classic range of genuine parts. The hand-stamped chassis number follows that of the last series-production street-legal 993 Turbo, which rolled off the production line in 1998. … [Read more...] about Project Gold Is The New Air-Cooled 911 Turbo You’ve Been Wanting
