Lamborghini Day 2017 in Tokyo for 50th Anniversary in Japan

Lamborghini Day 2017 Tokjo
Lamborghini Day 2017 took place this Friday at The Prince Hotel in Tokyo, attended by Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, as well as media, customers and VIPs. The event featured the Asian debut of the Aventador S Roadster, which made its world premiere at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini’s arrival in Japan, starting from the first imports of the 400 GT model. To celebrate this event, the Sant’Agata Bolognese super sports car manufacturer created a limited series called “Aventador S Roadster 50th Anniversary Japan”, produced in just five units destined exclusively for the Japanese market. Each of the five Aventador S Roadsters is a one-off car, with colors and finishes inspired by one of the five natural elements of Japanese culture: water, earth, fire, wind, and sky. The “water” version was presented and displayed during Lamborghini Day in Tokyo.
The concept for the car was developed by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam Department along with the Centro Stile, a collaboration that led to the idea of developing a unique paint for each model, featuring special shading effects in which, in the case of the “water” version, the blue tends to black. The artisan creation of the paintwork required 170 hours of labor and the contribution of ten specialists. The exterior is completed by the windscreen frame and the hard top, both made of exposed carbon fiber.

The interiors are realized in Nero Ade black leather and Nero Cosmus black Alcantara. Another unique feature of the car is the embroidery on the seats and on the hard top that evokes the Japanese symbol for bamboo (Y). The color of the stitching matches that of the exterior, with the same gradations and shading: an effect that required 100 hours of labor by six specialists. The interior finish is completed by a hexagonal carbon fiber plate with the Japanese symbol of the car’s elemental namesake.
The Lamborghini Day events also included the “Lamborghini Day Concours d’Élégance Tokyo”, now in its second edition. The most beautiful models of the brand’s history, including Miura, Diablo and Countach participated in the Concours, with a total of 50 automobiles. The participating cars also included the Miura SV restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico that won Best of Show at the “Lamborghini & Design Concours d’Élégance” held in Neuchâtel on 17 September. The jury, composed of 13 international judges, evaluated the most representative models of each era, divided into eight classes. The Best of Show prize was awarded to an orange Countach LP 400 from 1976 (car serial number#1120186).

During Lamborghini Day 2017, downtown Tokyo witnessed a parade of more than eighty modern Lamborghini models, that wound through the famous area of the Tokyo Tower and the fashionable Ginza district.

Lamborghini: Waiting for Urus

Lamborghini URUS
Twenty-five years after the legendary LM002 ceased production, Automobili Lamborghini will launch the Urus on 4 December 2017 in Sant’Agata Bolognese, again creating a new class of Super SUVs. In advance of the Urus world premier Automobili Lamborghini looks back on its SUV legacy in order to recall an extraordinary automobile.
The black LM002 (chassis #12231) from the Lamborghini museum, entirely-restored by the classic department Lamborghini Polo Storico represents Lamborghini’s original SUV creation: the LM002 is widely considered as the father of luxury SUVs. Turning heads in sophisticated city streets, the LM002 was equally at home in dirt, gravel and snow.

The LM 002’s development started as a project to develop a high performance off-road vehicle for military use at the end of the 1970s, with the name of Cheetah. Lamborghini engineer Giulio Alfieri resurrected the project in 1981 with the LM 001: an innovative concept with a rear-mounted engine, followed by the LMA prototype with a front-mounted powertrain. The final production model of the LM002 was first presented at the Brussels Auto Show in 1986, consolidating the final design: the V12 engine from the Countach Quattrovalvole provided a 5,167 cc capacity and 450 hp at 6,800 rpm.
In an aluminum and fiberglass body, with four-wheel drive transmission, transfer case and three self-locking differentials, the SUV could exceed gradients of 120%. Reaching speeds of more than 200 km/h, the LM002 was equipped with specially-developed Pirelli Scorpion tyres, allowing ‘floating’ capabilities across soft surfaces such as sand, and highly durable in hot conditions. The production of the bodies started in a company near Bilbao (Spain). Then the semi- assembled parts were shipped to Sant’Agata Bolognese for completion with the powertrain, mechanical parts, finishing, testing and delivery. A luxurious interior matching the individual needs of the customer completed the LM 002.
LM002
The LM002 attracted significant attention when launched, as a vehicle unlike any other, with performance to match its super sports car stablemates as well as significant off-road capabilities and an imposing design and presence. A total of 300 were produced from 1986 to 1992.
Like the LM002, the Urus will create a new Super SUV class of its own, with exceptional power and torque, distinctive design and a very significant presence. The Urus assures exceptional road-going dynamics, performance and luxury and like the LM002, has exceptional capabilities on off-road terrains, including sand.

Global Dynamic Launch of the Lamborghini Aventador S in Valencia

Lamborghini Aventador S 03

From 20 to 25 of January the global dynamic launch of the Aventador S took place at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia (Spain). International media tested the next generation of the V12 Lamborghini flagship on both track and road.

The new Lamborghini Aventador S is characterized by new aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics. The ‘S’ defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini. 

Lamborghini Aventador S 06

 

The Aventador S is redeveloped around a ‘total control concept’ to provide a superior drive, ride and performance; every aspect of the car’s suspension and electronic control systems has been advanced, with the goal of particularly enhanced control and driving emotion.

EGO is the new driving mode option. This provides several additional and individual set-up profiles, customizable by the driver, selecting his preferred criteria for traction, steering and suspension within the STRADA, SPORT and CORSA settings.

Lamborghini Aventador 02

All driving modes have been recalibrated in the Aventador S, improving ESC integration with all-wheel drive and the interface between engine torque management system and traction control reaction. The continuous torque split to front and rear axles in each driving mode is recalibrated for the Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering and the differentiation between the driving modes is enhanced.

The Lamborghini Aventador’s naturally aspirated twelve cylinder, 6.5 liter engine outputs an additional 40 hp over its predecessor, to a maximum 740 hp, with a 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is reached in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h. Transmission is provided by Lamborghini’s lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed shifting system, providing robotized gear shifts in up to 50 milliseconds.  

Lamborghini Aventador 03

Lamborghini sound and resonance from the already inimitable V12 aspirated engine, with the three single pipe outlets at the rear of the Aventador S a visual reminder of the new exhaust system. The Aventador S sits on a new, specially developed set of Pirelli P Zero tires. Designed to optimize steering, traction, lane changes and braking efficiency.

The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador S in Spring 2017 at suggested retail prices: EUR 281.555,00 (suggested retail price taxes excluded) GBP 225.955,00 (suggested retail price taxes excluded) USD 421.350,00 (suggested retail price – GGT included).

The Lamborghini Aventador S : Extreme Evolution

lamborghini-aventador-s-02

The new Lamborghini Aventador S is characterized by new aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics. The ‘S’ is the suffix of previous enhanced Lamborghini models and defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini.

The design of the new Aventador S clearly indicates the new Aventador generation. The Aventador S features a number of exterior developments, particularly in front and rear, while its profile remains clearly an Aventador. A more aggressive nose and longer front splitter redirect airflow for better aerodynamic efficiency, improved engine cooling and increased cooling to the radiators. Two air ducts in the side of the front bumper reduce aerodynamic interference from the front tires and optimize wake flow to the rear radiator.

The Aventador S chassis retains the Aventador’s unique and extremely rigid lightweight carbon fiber monocoque with attached aluminum frames resulting in a dry weight of just 1,575 kg. The Aventador S allows the driver to select between four different driving modes: STRADA, SPORT, CORSA and the new EGO mode, which influence the behavior of traction (engine, gearbox, 4WD), steering (LRS, LDS, Servotronic) and suspension (LMS).

lamborghini-aventador-s-13

All driving modes have been recalibrated in the Aventador S, improving ESC integration with all-wheel drive and the interface between engine torque management system and traction control reaction. The continuous torque split to front and rear axles in each driving mode is recalibrated for the Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering and the differentiation between the driving modes is enhanced.

The Lamborghini Aventador’s naturally aspirated twelve cylinder, 6.5 liter engine outputs an additional 40 hp over its predecessor, to a maximum 740 hp, with a 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. To achieve the power increase, both VVT (Variable Valve Timing) and VIS (Variable Intake System) have been optimized in order to obtain an enriched torque curve. Additionally, the maximum engine revs have been increased from 8,350 to 8,500 rpm. A dry weight of just 1,575 kg provides a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.13 kg/hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is reached in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h. Transmission is provided by Lamborghini’s lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed shifting system, providing robotized gear shifts in up to 50 milliseconds. The Aventador S adopts a new exhaust system developed as the result of a significant R&D project.

As in its predecessor, the Aventador S is equipped with a stop-and-start system and cylinder deactivation for optimized engine efficiency. When full engine capacity is not required, six of the twelve cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to twelve-cylinder mode, with the changeover virtually impossible to detect by the driver. The Aventador S sits on a new, specially developed set of Pirelli P Zero tires. Carbon ceramic brakes are standard equipment for the Aventador S. What7s the cost : 281.555,00 EUR(suggested retail price taxes excluded).

Lamborghini Huracan Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder : Thrilling Open-Air Driving

lamborghini-huracan-spyder-01

Automobili Lamborghini presents the Lamborghini Huracán rear-wheel drive Spyder, combining the lifestyle appeal of the convertible with the pure on-road experience of the Huracán’s rear-wheel drive technologies.

The rear-wheel drive Huracán Spyder features a newly designed front and rear with a dynamic but more aggressive look distinguishing it from the four-wheel drive version. Its naturally aspirated V10 5.2 l engine sends 426 kW / 580 hp to the rear axle, with its dry weight of just 1,509 kg providing a weight-to-power ratio of 2.6 kg/hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is achieved in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 319 km/h.


The rear-wheel drive Spyder will be available in markets worldwide from January 2017, priced between the two and four-wheel drive coupe models and completing the core Huracán product range. Soft-top design for a true Spyder T.

The ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management: ‘soul’ in Italian) button on the steering wheel allows the driver to adopt different driving modes, calibrated to suit the spirit of the rear-wheel drive model. STRADA for daily use, SPORT for sporty driving fun, and CORSA for maximum track-oriented performance are tuned to provide over-steering characteristics, emphasizing authentic rear-wheel drive behavior.

As in all Huracán models, cylinder deactivation improves engine efficiency, reduces fuel consumption and reduces CO2. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to ten-cylinder mode, with the changeover being virtually impossible to detect by the driver.
