Comments Off on THE YOUNG DRIVERS OF LAMBORGHINI SQUADRA CORSE
The 2017 edition of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s youth programs enters the heart of the season. In June, the Imola Autodrome hosted the first training session for members of the two talent programs of Lamborghini’s Motorsport division: the Young Drivers Program, open to young drivers who compete in the single-brand Lamborghini Super Trofeo, and those in the GT3 Junior Program, reserved to young talents who race in the major GT championships worldwide with the Huracán GT3.
In all, more than forty promising young Motorsport talents were selected by Lamborghini Squadra Corse with the aim to help them grow toward becoming professional drivers and brand ambassadors.
For Lamborghini’s racing division, in fact, talent and speed on the track are not the only prerequisites necessary for becoming a “Pro”. Other qualities are required, and for this reason Squadra Corse’s talent programs are organized so as to offer the young drivers all the tools necessary for honing and developing [...]

Comments Off on TG’s Lamborghini Huracán Performante review
What do we have here?
The new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Or, what happens when you lock a Huracán in a cage, feed it raw meat and poke it with a pointy stick. You know the drill: like the Gallardo Superleggera before it, this is the harder, faster, stickier and more track-focused version of Lambo’s baby supercar designed to monster race tracks, but retain a whiff of usability on public roads. If Lambo had a GT3 badge, this would be wearing it.
Yes, we have driven it already, but that was an early prototype wrapped in black and white sticky tape and we were limited to a few laps of the track. This is the finished article, and while we have the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (Lamborghini prefer to call it Imola for some reason?) at our disposal once again, we’ll also be braving the Italian highways.
Let’s talk horsepower.
Good call. The engine is still a naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre [...]
Comments Off on Automobili Lamborghini expands prototype and pre-series vehicle development facilities, and opens new acoustic test room
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 9 June 2017 – Automobili Lamborghini has significantly expanded its prototype and pre-series vehicle development areas, as part of the ongoing production facility growth in readiness for its Super SUV, the Urus. The existing building has been extended from 5.000 m2 to 7.000 m2.
A new acoustic test room, part of the overall expansion, was officially inaugurated with the attendance of Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member for Research and Development of Automobili Lamborghini.

Comments Off on LAMBORGHINI MOTORSPORT DRIVER EDUCATION TRACK DAY @ AREA 27
Incredible, this is how we would describe this past weekend. Natural talent and pure adrenaline came forth in all of our drivers and we could not have asked for a better outcome.
This event started late morning on Sunday, May 28th with a majority of our drivers convoying together from the Lower Mainland up to beautiful Osoyoos. With a quick pit-stop in Princeton, the crew traveled further and arrived, mid-afternoon, to the spectacular Spirit Ridge resort. After freshening up and relaxing after a long drive, the group got together in a private banquet hall for a filling, BBQ-style dinner and an itinerary refresh by our crew of skilled instructors.
Early Monday morning came quickly, and after breakfast our group gathered together and travelled, convoy-style, to Oliver, BC – this is where the challenging Area 27 track is situated. After an informative sit-down session with our instructors and the on-site flag team, we were ready to hit [...]
Comments Off on Testing Lamborghini’s Newest And Fastest Supercar, The Huracan Performante, At Its Hometown Track
What do customers considering plunking down $242,000 for Lamborghini’s Huracan supercar want even more? The Italian exotic carmaker is betting on its answer: a faster, more powerful, and more expensive Lamborghini Huracan.
Lamborghini revealed the $274,390 Huracan Performante, a high-performance version of the already high-performance car, at the Geneva Motor Show in March. This week, executives gave journalists the opportunity to drive it at Lamborghini’s hometown track, the Autodromo Internazionale di Imola, near the company’s Northern Italy headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
A more track-oriented version of the standard Huracan may seem redundant, but for an additional $32,000, the Performante offers improved steering, braking, and suspension that translate into an edge in performance. The Performante can zip from zero to 60 m.p.h. in 2.9 seconds instead of the comparatively sluggish 3.2 seconds the Huracan needs.

Comments Off on “Lamborghini Huracán Performante sets new ‘Ring record
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 1 March 2017 – The Lamborghini Huracán Performante has already proved its extraordinary capabilities ahead of its unveiling at Geneva Motor Show next week. On 5 October 2016, the Huracán Performante set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 min on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
Following the day’s open sessions on the “Ring”, at 17.00 officials closed the track to other manufacturers. After official track checks this left just a 15-minute window for Lamborghini to make one attempt at the lap record with a production Huracán Performante, still in its development camouflage.
With Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, who also drove the Aventador SV to its Nürburgring sub seven-minute lap time in 2015, the Huracán Performante warmed up its tires and made its rolling start, fitted [...]
