National Geographic Tours the Lambo Factory


In NG’s latest documentary, they head to the Lamborghini factory to find out how much work goes into building a raging bull. In this video, they show the attention to detail that the technicians use when painting the body panels.

Lambo SuperVeloce vs Corvette ZR1


The blokes over at AutoCar were lucky enough to pit two of the worlds fastest and most highly regarded super cars in the world. The Lambo SV has 670 Italian-bred ponies in the boot and all wheel drive, making it go from 0-60 in negative three seconds… well, maybe it can’t defy space and time, but it’s still ridiculously fast. The ZR1, on the other hand, has 30 less horsepower and 60 more pounds, meaning the Lambo should have a solid edge over the bowtie. Watch and learn why American muscle is king.

Wallpaper of the Week: Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce


Lamborghini Murcielago LP-670-4 SuperVeloce - Front View

I know, I know… last weeks WOTW didn’t make it up on Friday, but that’s because we we wanted to bring you something really special on Monday to brighten up your day… consider this mission accomplished.

It’s hard to find a better example of a Lamborghini than their brand-spanking new Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce.  When compared to the already lightweight LP-640, a 220 lb. weight loss and 487 ft-lbs. of torque helps the SuperVeloce run 0-62MPH in just 3.2 seconds, but it’s the 670 bulls under the hood that make it scream all the way up to 212 MPH (if you have the small spoiler on the trunk, that is).  ‘

The refined, poly-angle design makes it more subtle than the Reventon, but still much more aggressive than the standard Murcielago. The engine cover alone helps transform this beast into an icon as three hexagonal-shaped polymer plates serve as a window into the engine bay, supported by a series of carbon fiber shelves formed specifically to maximize air flow onto the rear spoiler.

I doubt this Murc will be featured at the Lamborghini Academy, so these press photos will have to satisfy your appetite. Enjoy the pics, they should look great on your desktop for the next week or so.  :)

Lamborghini Academy Redefines Bull Riding


Lamborghini Academy - Gallardo in the Snow

Riding the bull at the local bar is not a bad way to spend $5, but what about $5,000? I guess it depends on the bull you’re riding, and if it’s a Gallardo LP 560-4 or a Murcielago LP 640, it’s probably a pretty good deal.  This is what the head honchos in Italy thought when they recently announced the training dates for the new Lamborghini Academy. For five grand, you get full accommodations and two days on the track at the Vallelunga or Adria Raceway in Italy. You’ll even get a video highlighting your accomplishments at graduation.

They offer three packages: the Track Academy, the Advance Academy and the Winter Academy. Each option will let you get behind the wheel of a Lambo and be instructed how to under-steer, over-steer, drift and pick your line. The Winter Academy looks particularly fun; nothing like trying to control 640 horsepower in the snow.  :)

Press release after the jump.
