How To Make A Lambo.


Kyrgyz-Lamborghini

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.  But the “Kyrgyz Lamborghini” seems to be just the beginning. 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.

 

2013 Is The Lamborghini Gallardo’s Last Year.


2013-Lamborghini-Gallardo

Lamborghini has announced that it is to cease production of its V10 Gallardo. But the Italian company has a replacement waiting in the wings that it is set to unveil in 2013.  Credited with reviving the brand after it was sold to the Volkswagen Group in 1998, the Gallardo went on sale in 2003 and over the past 10 years had become the most popular Lamborghini of all time, racking up over 10,000 sales to date.  However, while it can still compete with Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren in terms of looks and brute force power, it was starting to struggle to keep up in terms of technology and driver aids.  Still, its departure will leave a hole in Lamborghini’s lineup as well as marking the end of an era for the brand. Supercar fans will be keen to see the debut of the much anticipated replacement — and how it compares.

A special edition of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, named the Gold Edition, has been officially presented to the public in China, at the Shenzhen Hong Kong Macau International Auto Show.  In China, a standard Gallardo is priced at 3 million Yuan (around $600,000) but this special edition model has been priced almost $200,000 more.

Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition


To celebrate the partnership between Lamborghini and luxury watchmaker Blancpain, the Italian automaker has just announced a new limited edition series of Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition cars.  The two marques are also behind the Super Trofeo racing series, which Lamborghini claims is the fastest spec racing series on today’s circuits.  The car features a revised engine cover, a massive rear spoiler and Skorpius wheels which cover yellow brake calipers that clamp onto carbon-ceramic discs.

The interior comes in black Alcantara with yellow accents and visible carbon-fiber, with the Blancpain logo placed on the seats and cockpit in yellow stitching.  The most amazing part of this Blancpain Edition’s as it only weight 1340kg and it is the lightest vehicle from Lamborghini’s production car range.  This super car comes with 5.2-litre V10 engine that churned out 570 horsepower and capable to push 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds.


“This is a very intense and dynamic partnership between companies from highly disparate sectors, but with the same drive for innovation and mechanical excellence,” – Marc A. Hayek, Blancpain CEO.
