  2. Hi guys, I'm posting the pics of the upcoming Lamborghini showroom in Bangalore. It is located on Vittal Mallya Rd. at the Lavelle Rd junction. It is adjacent to my office and has been under construction for over 6 months. Today only I found the branding and sign-boards on display. The interiors are also almost ready. No idea about the inauguration date! Eagerly awaiting for brand-new Lambos to come up here
  3. Lamborghini today launched an India Limited Edition Gallardo based on the LP550-2 as part of the Raging Bull's 50th Anniversary celebrations. Price is a cool Rs. 3.06 crore.

  4. Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and for that there is a Grand Tour taking place with 350 Lamborghinis taking part from all over the world. The 350 cars (320 registered participants and approximately 30 courtesy cars for the press and guests) arrived in the parc fermè at Piazza Castello in front of the Sforzesco Castle, with their respective pilots and co-pilots totalling 700 people. Since two nights ago, fans and enthusiasts have witnessed the unloading of the cars arriving from overseas and, as of yesterday morning, the registration and entrance to the parc fermè of those driving to the first meeting point. Historic Lamborghini cars on tour include three 350 GTs, five 400 GTs, seventeen Miuras, eight Espadas, two Jaramas, six Urracos, 15 Countachs, one LM 002, 21 Diablos and 36 Murcielagos. The record for number of cars participating goes to the Gallardo, the most successful Lamborghini model of all time, with 123 cars registered amongst the participants. The first destination of the Lamborghini Grand Tour will be Bobbio, the soul of the Trebbia Valley, then the first day will be concluded in Forte dei Marmi, one of the most exclusive seaside resorts on the Tyrrhenian coast. After Forte dei Marmi, the convoy will arrive on May 9 in Rome, passing through the base of the 4° Stormo of Air Force at Grosseto. The morning of May 10 it will restart again in the direction of Bologna, crossing the towns of Orvieto, Arezzo and San Giustino Valdarno, where all participants will stop for lunch at the Tenuta il Bobbio. On the 10th evening, the cars will arrive in the center of Bologna, where the city will offer a welcome in the prestigious setting of Palazzo Re Enzo. The next morning in Piazza Maggiore the ‘Concorso di Eleganza Lamborghini 50° Anniversario’ will be held, which is open to all the historic cars participating in the tour, from the first 350 GT up to the latest Countach model. On the 11th, the Tour will end in Sant'Agata Bolognese, headquarters of the House of the Raging Bull, where a gala dinner celebrating the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary will be held. Here are some pictures
  5. It's not very long that we seen Ferrari tractors coming to India & now Lamborghini is completing the circle, they are going towards their beginning! Any automotive enthusiast worth his burnt rubber knows the story of Lamborghini’s humble beginnings: Ferruccio started out building tractors, and only got into exotic sportscars to stick it to Enzo Ferrari. But even after the focus shifted, Lamborghini’s tractor-making division still soldiered on. It's a month old story, but I forgot to share it with you guys! Last month, Lamborghini's tractor division unveiled the 2013 Nitro described as a stylish and powerful tractor. Styling is certainly on the bottom of the list when buying a tractor but for the very few who want to look good while working, Lamborghini Trattori has come up with the Nitro. Giugiaro was in charge of designing this medium power tractor which features double LED taillights and a lowered contour hood. The spacious and comfy interior cabin provides a 360-degree visibility thanks to the panoramic, convexly-mounted windows made from athermal glass. Power comes from four-cylinder Deutz Tier 4i engines connected to a fully mechanical five-gear system or a three-speed Powershift. Stopping the tractor are independent oil-immersed disc brakes and a servo-assisted braking system. As standard, the Nitro has a Park Brake system while for more money it can be fitted with a Steering Double Displacement steering pump which will reduce the number of steering wheel turns for quicker maneuvers. it’s a Lambo – even if Lamborghini Trattori has been part of agriculture-equipment giant SAME Deutz-Fahr since 1971. & I can bet this is the coolest tractor on the earth. & I'm ready forget about my engineering studies & start farming to drive this one! Considering current drought situations, it's definitely going to launch in near by days! But one day, it'll surely come to the India, as revelry between Ferrari & Lamborghini is well known!

  7. Supercars are coming into India quick and how. Just after the global launch, Lamborghini is all set to launch the Aventador Roadster in India on the 25th of January 2013. The Roadster will be similar to the coupe except for a few changes. the rear pillar has been redesigned to offer total support for the removable roof and a new engine hood that features a central "spinal column" with two pairs of hexagonal windows connected at the sides. The new Aventador Roadster is being offered with a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the front luggage compartment. Rest of the madness remains the same Stay tuned to this thread for more details, prices and pictures.
  8. Just returned from the venue, posting teaser images dedicated to all the Autocar Forum Members.. Much more to come... stay tuned! Guess this one!
  9. There have been very few rivalries in the automotive world as that between the two Italian giants from Santa Agata and Maranello respectively. Yes of course Im talking about Lamborghini and Ferrari. The cars from these two marques have been the object of desire of many a young boy, yours truly included. And there is no better way to start a weekend if you get to play with something from the Prancing Horse and the Raging Bull stables. Here I was in the wee hours of a Saturday morning waking up Mumbai city to the tune of a 1000 plus horsepower. What followed was a couple of hours of madness and my toys were Lamborghini’s race car for the road, the Super Trofeo Stradale and Ferrari’s 458 Italia which is today called by most as the best sports car in the world. The Gallardo has been around for almost 10 years now and has seen many models upgrades and limited editions. The Super Trofeo Stradale is the road going version of the race car which runs in the racing series bearing the same name in Europe called the Blancpain Super Trofeo. The huge rear spoiler is the first indication of what this car is about. The body has a light weight construction using aluminum and carbon fibre. Weight reduction is evident with the carbon fibre mirrors and diffuser. Even the engine cover is made out of carbon composite material and is completely removable and comes with a quick release system. The STS comes with light weight 19 inch alloys and while “Rosso Mars” red is the definitive paint for this car, the one I drove was painted in “Bianco Monocerus”. The Super Trofeo Stradale is 70 kg lighter than a standard LP560-4 Gallardo .On the other hand, the 458 is a completely new design from scratch by Ferrari. Styled by Pininfarina the new car does not have any styling similarities to the F430. A completely new design right out of the box, the 458’s looks seem to be showcase the Ferrari design philosophy for the next era. Gone is the smiling look of the F430 and in its place the 458 comes with an aggressive and angry looking stance. There are two flexible wings in the front bumper one on each side. When the car is going fast, these wings lower automatically allowing more air to flow from beneath the car giving it more downforce. There is also an air vent each next to each headlight but they are not there just for cosmetic reasons. According to Ferrari, there is a lot of high air pressure generated in the wheel wells when the car is going fast. These air vents allow the air from the wheel wells to flow out from above the car pushing it to the ground. The twin circular tail lights are replaced by a single round unit on each side. Unlike other previous Ferraris, the Italia gets triple pipe exhausts which are mounted right at the centre of the rear in between the rear diffuser. The classic glass engine bay cover revealing the glorious V8 remains unchanged from the F430. The interiors of the Stradale although similar to that of a normal Gallardo has seen some weight loss too. The inside door pads are complete carbon fibre with a leather strap taking the place of the regular door handle. Lamborghini has a used a combination of red and black Alcantara for doing up the upholstery in the STS. The steering wheel is gets black suede with red stitching. The steering really has a nice touch feel to it. Lambo has equipped the car with full racing seats also done up in Alcantara. A fire extinguisher finds a place behind the seats. Other bits on the STS can also be ordered in carbon fibre. Coming to the Ferrari, the interior is unlike any other you’ve seen before. The dash has been sculpted like a cockpit. The instrument cluster houses the big prominent tacho right in the centre. This can be ordered in any colour you like. The gear indicator display is also located in the tacho. 2 TFT screens one on either side of the tacho complete the layout. The right TFT screen shows a virtual analog speedometer, navigation and in car entertainment functions, while the left screen displays various info about the car like the temperature, fuel, and the mode your car is running in. A digital speedo is also displayed in the left TFT. The steering wheel of the Italia is a revelation and Im sure this pattern will make its way to the other Ferraris as well. Ferrari has done away with the stalks for the windshield wipers and the indicators. Instead, they have been incorporated on the steering wheel itself. The gear shift paddles are also more bigger in the 458. The horn buttons have been integrated into the top half of the steering wheel. That way, you can use the horn without having to let go of the steering. The indicator buttons on the steering feel convenient to use because of their placement. Just a light touch is all you need. The steering wheel also has the button for suspension settings, the Manettino (or drive mode control switch) and the engine start button. As an optional extra for a few more bucks, Ferrari can give you Engine RPM LEDs on you steering wheel too for the complete F1 experience The mid mounted monsterous naturally aspirated V10 on the STS pumps out 570 horses at 8000 rpm. Max torque figured stand at 540 Nm at 6500 rpm. With the kind of weight loss on the STS, you can be assured of insane performance. The STS flies hits the 100 mark in 3.4 seconds and goes on to do a top whack of 320 kph. Lamborghini’s 6 speed E-gear with paddles is standard. While it is pretty smooth are low and normal speeds, as you go onto higher speeds. So what about the Ferrari? The 458 comes with a 4.5 litre V8 unit. Extremely high revving, it produces 562 horses @ a staggering 9000 rpm !!! Peak torque of 540 Nm is achieved at 6000 rpm. The Italia has a 7 Speed dual clutch gearbox developed by Getrag. The presence of two clutches works wonders in the shifting department. Even in the auto mode you don’t experience any lag. All you need to do keep the throttle pedal pressed and the tranny does the gear changes in milliseconds before you can even blink an eye. No jerks at all. The old F430 did have slight jerks between gear changes. The 458 box is easily the best I have experienced in any of the super cars Ive driven so far. The 458 does the 0 to 100 kph dash in 3.4 seconds, quarter mile in 11.3 seconds and has a mind boggling top speed of 325 kph. The top whack in the Lamborghini STS is 320 kph but theres hardly a chance you would get to experience those speeds anywhere in Munbai city. The ride quality in he 458 is simply outstanding for a super car. The car’s suspension settings are fantastic. In comfort and sport mode there is none of the stiffness you would other wise experience in such a car. The 458 takes uneven roads very well making it hard to believe that it is riding on 20 inch wheels. This is an area where the Lamborghini falters . The ride is so hard that it hurts your vertebra every time you go over a bad patch of road. As if the violent gear changes weren’t enough. Both the Lambo and Ferrari come with optional Front Lift suspension which makes going over the torturous speed breakers a piece of cake. To summarize, there is very little to choose between these two beasts honestly. Both have their pros and cons. While the Ferrari feels built to perfection, the Lambo gives you that thrill and feel of raw power. Where the Ferrari has its share of complicated electronics, the baby Lambo is fairly easy to operate. But at the end of the day, I feel the Horse edges out the Bull for overall being a brilliant package altogether but at the same time it is more expensive than its nemesis. The replacement for the Gallardo is surely worth waiting for. As for me, all I can say is that it was indeed one of the best ways I could have spent a weekend. But the lust to drive a Ferrari F355 still remains.
