Lamborghini’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed this evening they will build just 20 units of the Sesto Elemento, the carbon-based super sports car that first appeared at the Paris Motor Show last year.
If you’re looking for a reason to attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month, then look no further than the stunning cars being shown by Alfa Romeo this year.
The most extreme version of Audi’s R8 has gained (or lost, depending on your perspective) further appeal with a new soft-top Spyder variant of the R8 GT. Using the same 552 bhp V10 FSI powerplant as its hard-top sibling, the GT Spyder will be delivered to just 66 lucky customers in the UK out of a worldwide production of 333 units.
The V12 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 made its Asian debut this morning on Lamborghini’s stand at the Auto Shanghai 2011. The event also marked the launch of the Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore at a special off-site event held in the Shanghai Expo. The LP 550-2 Tricolore was developed to pay homage to Italy, but this was the first time it had been shown in China.
A new Caterham Supersport was unveiled today, although you’d be forgiven for asking what’s new about a design that’s been around for more than 40 years. Caterham describe it as “..the first brand new addition to the world-renowned Seven range in two years”, although that probably only serves to confuse you even more, so let’s cut to the chase and outline exactly what the term ‘new’ applies to.
It looks like the Aventador LP700-4 is not only ‘fast’ in terms of its performance – 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds – but also in how quickly Lamborghini are able to sell them. In less than a month since being launched at the Geneva Motor Show, the first year’s allocation has already sold out and you’ll already be looking towards 2013 for the next available production slot.
If like me you’re sitting with your mouth wide-open staring at these pictures, then you’ll be pleased to hear this is not a concept car, but in fact a real vehicle that you can buy. Soon.
Alfa Romeo revealed its much-rumoured 4C sports car concept at Geneva today, generating one of the biggest scrums of the day as photographers fought to capture those all important first images. The 4C Concept follows on from the success of the 8C Competizione and Spider, but rather than the £100k plus price tag of its elder sibling the 4C is likely to be much more affordable when it eventually goes on sale.
Once you’ve decided you want a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – and you DO want one, the next step is deciding what colour and spec to choose. A range of 13 colors will be available at launch, in pastel metallic, pearlescent or matt finishes. These include the new shades Grigio Estoque and Arancio Argos.
Is it just me or does this new A3 concept look more like how a future A4 should look? Seriously, I had to check the press release more closely in case it was a typo. But no, this is indeed an A3 and the for the first time it comes in four-door saloon form.
It was bound to happen, despite the numerous images leaked during the past fortnight, and to ensure all eyes were on Lamborghini’s stand, the new Aventador LP700-4 was revealed last night at the VW Group pre-show party guaranteeing it the front-page position on Day 1 of the 81st Geneva Motorshow.
As we continue to wait for the official press launch, more pictures leak out showing Lamborghini’s new V12-powered Aventador LP700-4. These most recent pictures provide a better view of a new Lamborghini colour, which we understand to be called Arancio Argos – and which in case you’re wondering is an orange rather than red hue.
