Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

October 15, 2010

Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A made its new technology the centerpiece of its Sesto Elemento concept, which was introduced September 30 at the Paris auto show.

The car uses carbon fiber for the passenger compartment, the front and rear-end structures, suspension components, the interior, all exterior panels, and suspension components. Even the tailpipe is made from a carbon and glass-ceramic composite. The process, called “directed carbon-fiber pre-forming,” adds a very small amount of cobalt to the carbon fiber. The company then can robotically shoot a fine stream of carbon fiber into a magnetized mold at a rate of 6 kilograms per minute.
The Sesto Elemento concept car weighs 999kg, about 340kg lighter than the current Gallardo LP Superleggera.

What a long name… The LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is more powerful, lighter and faster than the already pretty quick LP-640. The 670 represents the  increase in power to 670 hp.

This new machine will have a weight decrease of 110kg. 0-62 mph is now achieved in just 3.2 seconds and top speed is 212 mph with the standard, small spoiler.

The Design looks much more attractive than the previous models, but that’s only my own opinion but it does give me more of an insect/reptilian and aggressive feel.

Lamborghini Superleggera Pumps

February 15, 2009

“Based on the design of the defunct Gallardo Superleggera, these pumps are pretty well thought-out, right down to the carbon fiber stilettos holding up the back. As a curious distraction, these make for some funny footwear.
Designed by Modo illustrator Tim Cooper as a potential product from Tonino Lamborghini.”

Lamborghini Estoque

November 1, 2008

A Lamborghini must be immediately recognizable in its design as a unique and unmistakable work of art. For the Estoque, this is clearly a case of “mission accomplished”.

The Lamborghini Estoque concept has everything that defines a Lamborghini: extreme, uncompromising and unmistakably Italian, iIt brings a whole new versatility to the brand’s DNA – with its four seats and ample luggage space, this “everyday sports car” is a perfect fit for an equally versatile lifestyle.

But when are they fast enough to make consumers say woah!.. The lastest in the race from Asus, a Core Duo Vista machine called VX2…

The lamborghini experience: The VX2 is designed to give users not only the impression of the Lamborghini spirit but innovative materials and details are incorporated to make the notebook look, feel and run like a supercar. The sensational design starts with the signature colors of Lamborghini yellow and black with each one cast with aluminum-magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, respectively. The special mirror painting surface of the LCD cover not only gives the notebooks an automobile finish, but it also enhances toughness of the cover.
