Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse

 At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Lamborghini is presenting the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, a limited edition, “street-legal” version of its famous race car, priced at €191,100 (around $253,300).

Lamborghini said the Squadra Corse is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, itself the race car from the one-make Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series. The name Squadra Corse refers to a newly formed department within Lamborghini corporate that manages all Lamborghini racing activities.

Exterior upgrades for the Squadra Corse include a decal strip in the colours of the Italian flag and a high-gloss black finish for the front air intakes, rear diffuser and 19in alloy wheels. The brake calipers are available in red, black or yellow, and there’s a choice of white, yellow, red or grey paintwork.

A combination of carbon-fibre and Alcantara trim give the interior a racier look, while customers can specify racing bucket seats or “comfort” seats.

Color choices aside, the Squadra Corse will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show with Super Trofeo-inspired styling and a V10 engine that develops 570 HP (419 kW).

The supercar accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4s and boasts a top speed of 320km/h. Of course, performance like this translates into serious gas guzzling, and the Squadra Corse consumes 13.5L/100km over a mixed driving cycle, emitting 319g of CO2 per km.

Pricing for the special edition Gallardo, which is limited to just 50 units worldwide, starts at $259,100.

Special edition models of the ageing Gallardo included the Tricolore and Super Trofeo Stradale and a number of region-specific versions, such as the Hong Kong 20th Anniversary Edition.

Watch: Lamborghini constructed from spare parts

Not sure what to do with your old Volvo? New Format, a design studio in the Kyrgyz Republic, has an interesting solution.

With a 1982 Volvo as the base, wheels from a BMW X5, spare parts and scrap metal from the junkyard, plenty of imagination, and three months of perseverance, the agency has succeeded in creating a rather convincing knock-off of the Lamborghini Gallardo, a car usually priced at €300,000.

Meder Koilubaev, artistic director at New Format, has expressed his ambition to launch a new concept of custom one-of-a-kind cars made from spare parts in true Kyrgyz style.

Lamborghini Aventador Turns Bologna Airport Taxi

Lamborghini Aventador Turns Bologna Airport Taxi

Lamborghini Aventador Turns Bologna Airport Taxi

Earlier this month a Lamborghini Aventador wearing the white and green Dubai Police uniform turned up at a Dubai shopping mall, for permanent police duty.

Now, a white and red Lamborghini Aventador has taken up the job of a runway taxi at Aeroporto di Bologna, which is 30 minutes away from Lamborghini’s headquarters.

The specially trained airport staff is guiding arriving flights in the supercar which has been equipped with a light bar.

It’s wearing a white & red theme with the necessary decals, including a “follow me” sticker as well as others to celebrate Lamborghini’s anniversary.

The solution is not permanent, though, and the car will be returned on 19 May.

Lamborghini unveils “Egoista” concept

Lamborghini Egoista

To help celebrate the Italian supercar builder’s 50th anniversary, Lamborghini has introduced the new Egoista (translated, it means “selfish”) one-seater hypercar.

Unveiled in Sant’Agata Bolognese by its creator, Volkswagen’s head of design, Walter De Silva, the Egoista doesn’t so much whisper “look at me” as it does scream it at decibel levels dangerous to the human ear.

“This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum. It is designed purely for hyper-sophisticated people who want only the most extreme and special things in the world.”

“It represents hedonism taken to the extreme, it is a car without compromises, in a word: egoista (selfish),” De Silva explained of the 5.2-litre V10, 600 horsepower single-seat concept car that aesthetically has more in common with a fighter jet than with a vehicle designed for traveling along the ground.

Built almost entirely from carbon fibre and aluminium, the Egoista has a sliding overhead canopy, rather than something as old-fashioned as doors, while instrumentation is replaced by a head-up display, projected onto the curved windshield to ensure the driver never takes his or her eyes off the road.

The car’s exterior profile was developed to mimic that of a charging bull, shoulders arched, head down and horns pointing outwards, while aerodynamic systems have been integrated into the car’s construction and are deployed when needed — flaps and vents raise and lower based on engine temperature, downforce required or velocity so that the car is always the optimum shape to cut through the air, whatever the speed or prevailing conditions.

The unveiling of the Egoista is the latest high-profile event organized to mark the first 50 years of the Italian supercar brand.

Lamborghini hits road on anniversary tour of Italy

Lamborghini 50th anniversary

Hundreds of luxury Lamborghini cars powered through Milan on Wednesday at the start of a tour of Italy to mark the 50th anniversary of the company, which started out making tractors.

The 350 sleek roadsters with a combined horsepower of 190,000 formed a four-kilometre (2.5-mile) long convoy that began the tour from the Sforza Castle in Milan city centre and will end on Saturday at the company’s headquarters near Bologna.

The convoy is the most complete collection of Lamborghinis ever assembled with examples of every vehicle the company has ever built, from the original 350 GT right up to and including the current flagship V12 Aventador.

Drivers from 29 countries are taking part in the Lamborghini tour, which includes cars owned by the company and as well as aficionados, organisers said.

The biggest representation was from Britain, with 71 cars, followed by Germany, Italy and Switzerland with 30 Lamborghinis each.

Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Singapore, South Korea, Tunisia and Ukraine were also among those represented.

“Lamborghini has been the dream and the symbol of Made in Italy for 50 years,” said company chief executive Stephan Winkelmann, adding that the tour “reflects the global dimension we have attained”.

The tour will cruise through high-end beach resort Forte dei Marmi and Rome, as well as the mediaeval towns of Orvieto and Arezzo.

Lamborghini started out in 1948 as “Lamborghini Trattori”, which has since been sold off, while the luxury car division was founded in 1963.

It now has 120 dealerships around the world and is part of the Volkswagen Group.

Dubai police last month announced they had bought a Lamborghini patrol car valued at $550,000 (418,000 euros) to reinforce an image of “luxury and prosperity” in tourist-heavy areas.

This year also sees Aston Martin’s 100th birthday and the much more reserved British company is also in the middle of a European tour. However, its convoy consists of only three vehicles.

The Veneno is based on the Aventador coupe and is built almost entirely from carbon fiber. It boasts a V12, 750 horespower powertrain and permanent four-wheel drive.

Lamborghini says the Veneno can reach speeds of 220 miles per hour (355 kilometers per hour) and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

The model making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show is grey, but the three production models will each be finished in one of the three colors of the Italian flag.

The green, white and red cars will retail for €3 million ($3.9 million) plus tax and Lamborghini claims it has already secured a buyer for every example.

However the display model, which carries the production number 0, will remain the property of Lamborghini.

Likewise, although the Italian supercar maker has guaranteed delivery of each production model before the end of the year, production won’t start until further track-based testing has been completed.
