In this section of the website, you’ll find articles that look at the cars made by Lamborghini and 1:18 diecast models made of these cars.

These models are normally about 10 inches or 25 cm long and are made to be accurate representations of the full size car although the quality of the model usually varies with the price.

Since these cars are often hard to see in real life, it’s a great way to experience the beautiful designs for yourself.

Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4

A new Lamborghini concept car has been revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 2014.

The full name is the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 and it’s a petrol / electric hybrid two seat GT car. It is the most powerful Lamborghini they’ve ever built.

At the moment it’s a one-off technical exercise but you never know what might happen if interest is high enough.

The power unit is the 602bhp 5.2-litre V10 from the Huracan which sends power to the back wheels. In addition, there are three electric motors producing a combined 296bhp giving power to the front wheels together with a boost to the back wheels as well. In hp (rather than the British bhp) this totals 910.

I don’t have any photographs I can share at the moment but there are some videos.

I really like the design and I hope this signals a desire by Lamborghini to get back into the GT sector of the car industry.

I’d like you to imagine that you wanted to buy a supercar like a Lamborghini Aventador or a Ferrari F12berlinetta, perhaps even a Bugatti Veyron but it just wasn’t special enough.

That’s where Mansory, the German company can come to your rescue.

Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan is the 2014 replacement for its best selling model ever, the Gallardo.

It first appeared at the Geneva show in early 2014 and then went into production. The name came from a famous Spanish fighting bull from 1879. Huracán means hurricane in Spanish. Huracán is also the Mayan god of wind, storm and fire.

That’s some billing for the car to live up to.

Only three production cars have been made of the Lamborghini Veneno in 2013 plus the original concept car which will be kept by the firm’s museum.

Each is unique – one green ,one white and one red representing the colours of the Italian flag plus the grey prototype.

It was first exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013 to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary.

Lamborghini Aventador

The list of Lamborghini mid-engine supercars is short. The Miura, the Countach, the Diablo, the Murcielago and then, from 2011 on wards, the Lamborghini Aventador.

Lamborghini have announced that production will be limited to just 4,000 units and, despite the huge price tag and the economic problems, the Aventador LP700-4 is selling at the rate of about 1,000 a year.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is a special limited lightweight edition of the Gallardo. Only 20 of these mainly carbon fibre cars have been made.

The name, Sesto Elemento means sixth element in Italian which is a reference to carbon.

The car first appeared at the Paris Motor Show in 2010 and it continued the shock and awe design that was revived with the Lamborghini Reventon.
