We’ve featured plenty of Pontiac Fiero-based Lamborghini knockoffs, but this is the first we’ve seen based on the 5th-generation (2004-2006) Pontiac GTO. Despite looking nothing like a real Aventador, the one bright spot is that it’s powered by a Corvette-sourced LS1 V8 that generates up to 400 hp straight from the factory. However, if you look under the hood of this vehicle, you’ll spot a “900 HP” number on the valve cover, which is more than likely just for show. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Mansory is known for their extreme supercar upgrade packages, and their latest kit, called the Carbonado, transforms a 2018 Aventador S Roadster into a carbon fiber beast. In addition to the stealthy body work, it also comes equipped with optimized air intakes, a front lip spoiler, side skirts, diffuser, wider fenders (40 mm / 1.6 in. front and 50 mm / 2 in. rear), a new exhaust system and staggered wheels – 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels.

Just nine Lamborghini Veneno Roadster vehicles were ever built by the Italian automaker, and the one you see above was the second built for the royal family of Saudi Arabia. With just 279-miles on the odometer, it’s expected to fetch over $5-million USD at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris on February 5th. Featuring a bespoke satin black paint job complemented with several matte carbon fiber parts and lime green accents. Read more for a video tour, additional pictures and information.
Tuning shop Prior Design specializes in supercars and other exotics, like the Lamborghini Urus. To start, they wrapped the vehicle in a matte black and then added a custom hood, flared carbon fiber wheel arches, bespoke side skirts, front bumper / diffuser, secondary lip spoiler as well as a large roof spoiler. If you want something even more sporty, Prior can finish the flared arches in exposed carbon or paint it to match the rest of the body. Read more for a video and additional information.
The Lamborghini Huracán Evo Rear-Wheel Drive may have slightly less power than its AWD variant, but it’s definitely no slouch. Powered by a slightly de-tuned naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 that generates 602 HP at 8,000 rpm and 413 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with launch control function, it sprints from 0-62 mph in just 3.3 sec while topping out at 202 mph.

Sterling Backus, 54, and his 12-year-old son Xander were inspired to build their own Lamborghini Aventador after playing the racing simulation video game “Forza Horizon 3,” and the rest was history. Backus, a physicist at Thorlabs, says the creation is a tribute car for a STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) project that is not marked as a Lamborghini, so the company was ok with it. He used a toy model that was enlarged in 3D-drafting software Solidworks to help 3D print many of the parts used in their project car. Read more for two videos and additional information.

The third-generation Chevy Camaro was produced from 1981 up until 1992, offering modern fuel injection, a Turbo-Hydramatic 700R4 four-speed automatic transmissions, five-speed manual transmissions, 14,15- or 16-inch wheels, a standard OHV 4-cylinder engine, and hatchback bodies. Modified examples are nothing new, but this is the first we’ve seen one with Lamborghini badges. Read more for additional pictures and information.
The Gallardo is currently Lamborghini’s best-selling model with a total of 14,022 built throughout its production run between 2003 – 2013, so it’s not shocking to see that many kit car enthusiasts want to create replicas of this supercar. Wheelers Builders did just that, and it turned out far better than other attempts we’ve seen over the years, thanks to its Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder donor car.

If you’ve never heard of the Lamborghini Espada, it’s a 4-seat grand touring coupe that was manufactured between 1968 – 1978. Let’s just say that in stock form, the vehicle is not the most exciting to look at, but Danton Art Kustoms took care of that. They started with a 1968 Lamborghini Espada and transformed it into a wild-looking rat rod, starting with its exposed 3.9L V12 engine generating 325-horsepower.

We brought you the renders yesterday, and now, the Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo made its public debut in Monaco yesterday at the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships World Finals. After seeing the actual vehicle, we could see the automaker manufacturing a handful for a limited run, complete with its large rear wing, Y-shaped lights, and 1967 Marzal concept-inspired side windows.
