  • When driving a new car for the first time it's best to take it easy and get a feel for it, then gradually increase your speed. But when your new car is something like a Lamborghini Aventador, the temptation to floor it can be awfully strong—and it's all too easy to drive faster than your better angels can fly, even if it's completely by accident. We don't know for sure, but that's probably what happened to this particular Aventador SV. What we do know is that it's currently available on Copart with a salvage title and just 73 miles. That's no typo. Seventy-three miles, total, and it's totaled.The Lambo, built a mere four months ago, is listed as having primary damage on the front end. That's pretty obvious from looking at the pictures, which also explain why there is a "Trunk-Entrapment System Fault." The airbags have also blown, which is always expensive to get fixed. But the rear of the car, including its 6.5-liter V-12 engine, appears ..

  • California's Monterey Car Week might have ended on Sunday, but it's the event that keeps on giving. While rich collectors meticulously cleaned their seven-figure Ferraris in preparation for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, elite manufacturers scrambled to debut their newest cars in front of some of the wealthiest car nerds on the planet. Automobili Lamborghini was well-prepared this year, showcasing three of its best new supercars with the "Ad Personam for Pebble beach" trim, designed specifically for the event and tailored to each car. Lamborghini also let guests test drive some of its current lineup at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, where its special edition models were displayed. The Huracan RWD Spyder may not have been the star of the show, but it was a stunner nonetheless. The drop-top Huracan was wrapped in Grigio Astarte Silver and coupled with a Nero Ade brown leather interior and black Giano wheels, making it stand out amongst its more expen..

  • Everyone likes watching an unlikely pair of vehicles get pitted against each other in a battle of power and speed. With that in mind, the guys from DragTimes went to the strip to do battle with a Tesla Model X P100D and a Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV.The Tesla rocks 588 horsepower and 920 lb-ft of torque and has ludicrous mode so we can also safely assume it will dominate the track. Then diverting our attention to the Lamborghini, we are reminded of how amazing a 750 horsepower 6.5-liter V-12 sounds. Both vehicles are engineering marvels in their own right and both are worthy competitors on the track. Although both vehicles are all-wheel-drive, the Tesla proves a little more seasoned in keeping the power down and is able to get a cleaner launch off the line, still, the Lamborghini quickly starts playing catchup after the dash to 60 mph. However, the Tesla Model X is able to squeeze out a world record for the fastest production SUV with a 1/4 mile time of 11.418 seconds at a soccer..

  • Most of us know the story, but for the uninitiated, here's the abridged version. Old man Ferruccio Lamborghini was responsible for Lamborghini Trattori, a tractor company founded in 1948 that built agricultural vehicles from surplus military hardware, and Lamborghini Bruciatori, which made oil-powered heaters and air conditioning. He celebrated his success in the expanding postwar Italian economy by buying a Ferrari in 1958, but he wasn't satisfied with it, because of its fragile clutch and poor road manners. When Enzo Ferrari snubbed his complaints, Lamborghini decided he was having none of that, and after what we presume was one hell of a bender, decided he'd start his own car company, with blackjack, and hookers. The rest you know.As for the tractor company? Well, tractors are still sold today with Lamborghini badges, though Automobili Lamborghini and Lamborghini Trattori have been wholly separate entities for decades now, as the car company was originally sold off i..

  • Pirelli has announced a new addition to its Collezione tire range designed to preserve vintage looks and performance on vintage cars with modern safety and materials.Modern car tires bear little resemblance to the tires of old. New materials, construction techniques, and rubber compounds make today's tires perform better and more safely than they used to. Vintage and antique cars, however, were designed to work with the tires of their times, including all of their limitations. A modern performance street tire has much stiffer sidewalls and far more grip than cars like classic Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and the original Porsche 911 were designed for, which can lead to undesirable or even unsafe handling characteristics.Pirelli's Collezione tire line addresses this issue in multiple ways. Less is more when it comes to grip. These tires are available in the original sizes for many vintage and antique cars from Europe. That means they're more skinny than most modern tires, a..

  • You may have heard of the Guild of Automotive Restorers from the Velocity Channel's Restoration Garage. Now the Guild has branched out with their own YouTube channel, "The Guild's Classics," to give viewers a closer look at how they do their work than a TV show can provide.The first episode answers the one question the Guild has been asked most: How did they create the magnesium body of the 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe? Even today, magnesium is an exotic metal rarely used in cars. When it is used, it's extremely expensive. For example, the Lamborghini Countach's wheels cost $2,000 each. New production techniques may change that, but to create an entire body out of magnesium would still be unheard of today. It wasn't exactly common in 1935, either, but Guild president David Grainger believes that Bugatti employed master craftsmen to do exactly that.Magnesium can't be formed the same way as more traditional metals due to its unique properties. It weighs two-thir..

  • Back when I was in high school, there weren't a lot of perks for good grades. Maybe you received a coupon to get a free pizza at your local pizza place, at best. But for a certain community in Chicago, making the honor roll means you get to be driven in an exotic car.Tge idea was conceived by ad agency The Annex in conjunction with the traveling track-day group Xtreme Xperience, and made for the students of Wells Community Academy High School in Chicago, Illinois. The idea was to provide honor roll students with the ride of their young lives; as such, The Annex and Xtreme Xperience's "honor roll" provides the students at the top of their classes rides to school in Xtreme Xperience's fleet of Exotic Cars including a Lamborghini Huracán, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Porsche 911 GT3, and an Audi R8. The hardest-working student even received a ride in a helicopter. The program not only rewards current Honor Roll students, it has the effect of causing other students to strive to..
