Now, London police have impounded a matte-pink Lamborghini Murcielago LP670 SV for revving loudly…. with a cop directly behind him. According to an eyewitness: “Al-Thani Koenigsegg CCXR and Murcielago LP670-4… Continue Reading...
Most of the time, we hate when supercar owners block multiple parking spots, or park illegally just because they drive a car that’s worth more than most houses. We know a door ding can be a $10,000 repair on these cars, but people should still park them legally like everyone else. Here, a visiting middle-eastern… Continue Reading...
The luck just doesn’t seem to be getting any better for Lamborghinis, as another crash has surfaced – this time having absolutely nothing to do with their employees.

For those not in the know, Premier 4509 Limited is Veilside’s luxury brand. And the drastically different name is with good reason in our opinion, given Veilside’s reputation with Japanese vehicles that are borderline “ricey”. That image probably wasn’t helped by branding through the Fast & Furious movies, but marketing is marketing. Nonetheless, Premier 4509… Continue Reading...

Recently spy photographers captured a Lamborghini out testing on the Nürburgring, and while it was speculated this model might be the upcoming replacement for the Murciélago, that seems unlikely – especially as that car won’t debut until 2012. Instead it appears as though Lamborghini might be resurrecting the Jota name and building a track version… Continue Reading...
According to a recent report in German auto pub Auto Motor und Sport the replacement for Lamborghini’s flagship Murciélago won’t arrive until 2012.
