Facts about Lamborghini The first Lamborghini didn't even have an engine when they unveiled it. The 350 GTV may have been the world's first Lambo, and ultimately, it led to the creation of the supercar genre, but when it was first unveiled at the Turin Auto Show it wasn't even finished, so they put a bunch of bricks where the engine should have been and kept the hood shut the entire time.
The Lamborghini Aventador was inspired by an insect. According to one of the chief designers of the Aventador, it took its inspiration from an F22, an F35, the B2, and “those shiny green jagged-leg beetles that smell bad when you step on them.”
Italian police use Lamborghini Gallardos to transfer donated organs. Lamborghini donated a pair of the AWD screamers to the Italian equivalent of highway patrol. They use them to save lives, though one of them was totaled when it drove under a Mercedes in 2009.
Lamborghini Today The world premiere of the new HURACÁN LP 610-4 at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show opened a new era for Automobili Lamborghini and the entire segment of luxury super sports cars.
In 2015, the Huracán series was expanded with several new, unmissable models: the Spyder, engineered to fend the air and merge with the sky, and the RWD, conceived and produced with a view to turn a technological vehicle into the purest example of “driving fun.”
But 2015 was also the year of the Aventador, which saw two new breathtaking versions unveiled: the Aventador SV, developed as the Lamborghini with the sportiest DNA, and the Aventador SV Roadster, which combines high performance with the elegance and vanity of a Roadster.
2016 is the year of the Huracán Avio, the special series inspired by aeronautics, but it is also the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the founder of the iconic car manufacturer. It’s in tribute to him that Lamborghini releases the Centenario, a true masterpiece of perfection: innovative design and excellent performance in a limited-edition super sports car that has already become the object of the desire for all the collectors.
