Ever since the beginning of time, Lamborghini has been known as the all-wheel-drive, go hard, supercar. In 2009, the company released the new Gallardo with all-wheel-drive, then later created a ‘Balboni’ limited-edition with rear-wheel drive for those that like power sent to the back (along with Balboni, Lambo’s test driver himself).
After all the teasing for the past couple of weeks, Lamborghini has finally dropped the official pictures and details on what is known as the Sesto Elemento concept. The main theory behind the concept car? Lighter weight and less horsepower. Apparently there gets a point where you can’t add anymore horsepower to your vehicle, so to increase performance and reduce emissions, dropping some weight seems to be a great combo and a philosophy that Lamborghini will apply to future vehicles.

While we’re still waiting to see what the Lamborghini teasers will reveal later this week in Paris, the luxury supercar maker has just dropped images and details of another special-edition Gallardo that made its debut over the weekend at the final Super Trofeo race in Vallelunga, Italy. (more…)
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 1st March 2010 – Even more dynamic, lighter, more powerful and stunning – the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is the new top model in the Gallardo line-up. Its evocative “superlight” badge refers to a driving machine of true sporting character and describes a high-performance and lean automotive athlete. The Superleggera makes its entrance to continue the success of its predecessor, launched in 2007, of which Lamborghini produced and sold no less than 618 in just one year. (more…)

What started off as a limited edition car ended up as 1/1 in the world! All the LP650-4 cars came one way from Lamborghini with Grigio Telesto grey exterior paint and Arancio Leonis orange highlights. The owner of this car wanted the car matte black with gloss black highlights. This is how the transformation to become an AE Edition car began.
The car was transported by NTT (Norwalk Tow & Transport) to Avio Coach Craft to have the paint work done. The car was striped down to the metal and the complete interior was removed so that a proper complete paint make over could be achieved.
After the paint was completed the car was transported again by NTT to Giovanna Wheels to have the custom made 19” GFG 3-piece forged Narkid wheels and Pirelli tires installed. The wheels were painted with a gloss black outer lip, matte black center and orange highlights to perfectly match the brake calipers. Pirelli P-Zero 245/30/19 front and 355/25/19 rear tires were used to insure a safe and overall perfect fitment for this car.
