In the near future, we may see 3D-printing being used to manufacture everything from smartphones to even cars, but physicist Sterling Backus and his son couldn’t wait for the latter. So, they started work on a 3D-printed Lamborghini Aventador. They’ve spent around $20K on parts, with most of the body parts, including the panels, taillights, headlights and air vents, being 3D-printed, while others had to be ordered so the end project can actually be driven – frame, suspension, engine, etc. Read more for additional pictures and information.
The Lamborghini Urus is already one of the (if not the) fastest luxury SUVs straight from the factory, but ABT Sportsline decided to take things to the next level. For starters, they’ve developed a new engine control unit increases power output to 710 hp and 671 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just a mere 3.4 seconds. There’s also plenty of exterior mods to keep things stealthy on the road. Read more for additional pictures and information.
How about a supercar designed to go anywhere? Meet the Lamborghini Sterrato, based on the Huracan Evo.

Entertainer Chris Brown has been known for his flashy jewelry, clothing as well as supercars, and his latest addition is definitely no slouch. Tuning shop RDBLA transformed his Lamborghini Huracan into a glowing, color-changing street beast with a symmetrical chrome wrap that changes from blue to yellow, purple, orange, and pink depending on the viewing angle. They also added purple headlights for that added pop when it roams the streets at night. Read more for this week’s selection of interesting images from around the web.

Thailand-based body shop PS-Modify Chonburi recently unveiled their latest project, a Toyota MR2 Spyder converted into a bizarre-looking Lamborghini Veneno Roadster knockoff. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it looks nothing like its real counterpart, due to a front end that stretches out from the chassis of the Toyota with nearly zero support, no headlights, but at least the rear-end is decent, as it features the same engine cover, four tailpipes, rear wing, and rear diffuser design as the real Veneno. creation.

Alex Choi is no stranger to the supercar scene, but this 19-year-old didn’t want to stick with the typical mods you see all over the place. So, he decided to create Unicorn V3, or to be more specific, a twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracan rally car. He first upgraded the engine with Sheepey Race bolt-on twin-turbo kit, and then to make things safer, a hand-crafted chromoly and stainless steel cage that surrounds the entire car, inspired by the Flip Car from Fast & Furious 6.

Entrepreneur Daria Radionova wanted her Lamborghini Aventador SVJ to really stand out and a simple body kit or paint job just wasn’t going to cut it. So, she decided to have a shop cover her supercar in roughly 2-million Swarovski crystals, and it took a team about 700-hours to complete. Let’s just say it attracted quite the crowd in London. She didn’t say how much it cost, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the job cost as much as the vehicle itself, or possibly even more. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Thailand-based Infinite Motorsports has modified a Lamborghini Aventador with a Liberty Walk V.2 kit, and it looks to be straight from a video game, like Forza Horizon 4 or Gran Turismo Sport. Other additions include: a red, yellow and black livery, several decals, and limited edition Pur LX12.V12 wheels with carbon fiber blades wrapped in Pirelli tires.

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.
