Ares Design has just unveiled the production Panther Project 1 coachbuilt supercar, inspired by the 1970s De Tomaso Pantera, and based on the Lamborghini Huracan. Featuring a retro body kit that covers the original aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid chassis of the Huracan, complete with a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, that’s been tuned to generate 641 hp at 8,250 rpm and 442 lb-ft at 6,500 rpm, thanks to a tuned ECU and exhaust system. One caveat: it’ll set you back a cool €615,000 ($695,000 USD). Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Photographer Fabian Oefner created an incredible image of a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV’s individual parts disintegrating in all directions by first capturing 1,500 individual photos of the $2 million car over the course of about 2-years. Officially called “Disintegrating X (Lamborghini Miura),” Oefner and his team had to visit workshops around the Lamborghini Factory in Sant’Agata/Italy to photograph the vehicle during a restoration project.

Designed by Ramandeep Singh, Narendra Singh and Appu Koshy, the futuristic Lamborghini Trono is an all-electric hypercar with design elements from the Terzo Millennio concept as well as the Huracan. Featuring sleek Y-shaped headlights, angular styling, a panoramic windshield, large wheels, and then a thin light bar in the rear, similar to the Lamborghini Concepto X.

You read that right, Lamborghini is holding a one-make racing series for the Urus in 2020, and the vehicles will be based around the Urus ST-X Super SUV concept. This concept features a roll cage, 25% weight reduction from the production model, FIA safety equipment, and larger front air intakes. It’s still powered by a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 641 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Rain Prisk Design is back at it again, and their latest creation is this Lamborghini Urus pickup truck concept, which despite its odd looks, might actually have a market. The designer kept the front unchanged, aside from a rugged skid plate in the central portion to protect it from nasty bumps, while adding large off-road wheels and tires to increase ride height as well as prepare the vehicle for any rough terrain. Last, but not least, the pickup bed is the highlight of this concept, which adds utility for those who require nothing but the most luxurious for transporting their hardware.

This autonomous Lamborghini concept by Simon Wells is designed for 18-45 year olds looking to push the limits of autonomous technology, especially since this vehicle is basically an exo-suit with wheels. How does it work? The occupant straps themselves into the exo-suit and then uses cameras as well as a small display to see where they’re going. You can also livestream footage directly to social media for fans to enjoy. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Drag Times recently pit a stock Lamborghini Huracan, aside from Toyo R888Rs tires, against a modded second-generation Acura NSX complete with a custom ECU tune, a full custom exhaust, and a methanol injection system that pushes the twin-turbo V6 hybrid to 610 horsepower at the wheels, which means its generating anywhere between 650 horsepower and 700 horsepower at the crank. Read more to see if the Japanese supercar was able to taken down the Italian beast.
This most certainly isn’t the first Lamborghini Aventador knockoff, but it’s the first one we’ve seen that started its life as a four-door Honda Accord. Built by Executive Modcar Trendz, the sedan’s body was completely stripped and replaced with custom fiberglass pieces, with some quirks. The roof is much higher and the engine cover as well as decklid descend at a much steeper angle that its real-life supercar counterpart. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Think of the Lamborghini Vega as a smaller, more high-tech version of the Huracán, with a shorter wheelbase, minimal overhangs and a large panoramic roof. Since the Huracán maintains the 5.2 L naturally aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine from the Gallardo, tuned to generate a maximum power output of 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp) in a mid-engined configuration, it’s safe to say that the Vega will have a similar, possibly hybrid, drivetrain.

Now that we know Lamborghini is making hybrid versions of the Aventador and Huracan models, rumors are now swirling about the LB48H, also known as the Terzo Millennio. It will allegedly be priced around $3-million and boast glow-in-the-dark technology that’s overlaid onto its carbon fiber shell. Instead of batteries, supercapacitors may power the vehicle, due to their fast charge and discharge ability, in which the automaker is co-developing with MIT researchers. These supercapacitors have been developed to simultaneously capture and release energy to give the vehicle an increase in performance, without depending on chemical reactions.
