Lamborghini is all set to go racing in the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe with its new Huracan GT3. Sporting aggressive looks and eye-popping lime green paint, these monsters are going to look great competing on the track.
Adam Carolla's last visit to Jay Leno's Garage didn't really go well when his 1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 ran out of gas. However, he has returned to take Leno's constant teasing and show off his recently restored 1968 Lamborghini Islero.
A friend of Georgia resident Chuck Beck owned a Lamborghini that died in a fire, leaving only its engine. This friend offered that engine to Beck, and Beck not only accepted, he gave it a second life that rivals Bucky Barnes morphing into The Winter Soldier for outlandish second acts.
Jay Leno takes viewers on a tour of over a dozen projects currently happening in his garage in this video. The work spans the breadth of the automotive hobby, including a restoration of a 1969 Lamborghini Espada, a Ford Bronco waiting for a Coyote V8, several Panhards in various states of repair and a freshly completed Brough Superior motorcycle waiting for a ride.
Remember about a year and a half ago when a rare, classic Lamborghini Miura SV went up in flames in London? Its owner sure does. And he's not willing to write it off, pointing fingers squarely at the Lamborghini dealership in London for causing the fire.
There's something bizarrely fascinating about Japanese car culture, especially around Tokyo. The metropolis packs people tightly together in a way that would seem to make owning any car tough. And yet, there's still enough enthusiasm around anything with an engine to support everything from wildly tuned bosozoku rides with exhaust pipes reaching toward the sky to seriously fast Porsche and Lamborghini models.
Gene Ondrusek and his 1975 Lamborghini Urraco have a relationship forged in heartache.

The stationary revving of high-horsepower, high-cylinder-count Italian engines may be an adolescent pleasure among the world's wealthy, but it's a mechanical display of machismo we're usually prepared to indulge simply because it sounds so great. And it's a spectacle made all the better when one's exhaust spits flames, right? Well, most of the time. Check out this Lamborghini driver, who gets a bit exuberant with his right foot only to have disaster strike.
With its razor-sharp wedge shape, high performance and minuscule ride height, the Lamborghini Countach has always been a supercar made to be gawked at and grab attention. Even the model's name supposedly comes from an Italian exclamation. But not all recognition is positive, as is the case with this Lamborghini illegally parked within sight of London's famed Tower Bridge.
