Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who admitted to peddling drugs when he was still a teenager, is a popular rapper with millions to his name. He owns two Lamborghini Murcielago, one is coated in chrome and the other one sports a bright blue paint. 50 Cent said he bought his Lamborghinis each with a price tag of US$320,000. Aside from his Lambos, he also owns a Rolls Royce Phantom, Ghost, a Ferrari F50, a Bentley Mulsane, and a bulletproof Chevrolet Suburban. The latter one remains an enigma. Even his closest friends didn’t know any threats to his life save for that one instant when he was still in his teens. While he may sometimes be seen being chauffeured around in one of his 2 Rolls Royces, he likes to drive his Lamborghinis. In fact, he makes it a point to ride each one of them at least once a week.
Given to him by his wife, Kim, on the occasion of his 35th birthday, Kanye West received a Lamborghini Aventador costing around US$750,000. Wouldn’t you like to have a wife, or husband for that matter this rich and generous? Of course you would want to but as circumstances would have it, you might have to wait for a long time. Nevertheless, Kanye is so lucky to have a wife Kim who would want to add the latter’s car collection inside his garage. The master rapper’s other cars include a Porsche Panamera, Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss, Mercedes SLR McLaren, Aston Martin DB9, and Mercedes Maybach. In addition to the expensive gift given to him by his wife, Kanye West’s garage already contains a Lamborghini Gallardo. The garage is a pretty awesome sight for regular people once they see the cars of the couple inside.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance is just around the corner and one of the highlights of the show will be the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The automaker has released a teaser image of the Superveloce Jota on their Instagram page giving us an exclusive insight of the phenomenal electric supercar’s exterior.
The Lamborghini Superveloce Jota is set to replace the Aventador and will supposedly be the last Lambo powered by the naturally-aspirated V12 engine. It will carry a robust 6.5-liter V12 engine that will generate 760 horsepower and 531 lb.-ft of torque. The powertrain has been reworked and includes new titanium intake valves and ducts as well as an enhanced exhaust system with reduced back pressure. As a result, the supercar will offer an extra 20 horsepower and 22 more lb.-ft torque compared to the regular Aventador SV. It will still have the single-clutch transmission system.
The teaser image shows some interesting aerodynamic updates on the SV Jota such as the extractor vents and the hollow rear spoiler. Reports indicate that the SV Jota features the 2nd generation of the active aerodynamic system (ALA 2.0) for improved downforce. Moreover, it is noticeable from the teaser shots that the Lamborghini SV Jota will incorporate a number of carbon fiber elements to keep the overall weight of the supercar low. It is expected to weigh approximately 3,362 pounds (1,525 kilograms) which is almost the same as the Aventador Superveloce.
Considering the automaker’s electrification plan, experts believe that this might be the last non-hybrid Lamborghini as all the future models will boast an electric or hybrid powertrain.
We are expecting Lamborghini to unveil official information about the Superveloce Jota at the Pebble Beach event which will take place on August 26, 2018.
Lamborghini has become synonymous with exotic supercars, but the most eye-catching models currently are the Lamborghini Aventador vs Huracan . Both of them are supercars in their capacities and their presence puts the rest of the sports cars, within their ranks, to shame.
The Aventador has been engineered to revolutionize the concept of performance and establish a new benchmark in the segment of super sports cars. As Lamborghini puts it, the innovation in the Aventador takes the house of the raging bulls to yet another unexplored territory.
There has never been an era in Lamborghini’s past when two of its models (Huracan and Aventador) were so close. The two Lambos are extremely close in terms of performance and this will evidently be illustrated in the dissections below. If you have never been behind the wheel of a Lamborghini on an open stretch of road, check out the various models of Lamborghini for rent on 777Exotics.com. Discover for yourself why some people refer to these as supercars.
Huracan was made to replace Lamborghini’s sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo. It has adopted a 2-door coupe and a 2-door spyder body style.
Huracan maintains a 5.2 L naturally aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine from Gallardo, turned for 602 hp (449 kW), and a torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) with a top speed of 212 mph (314 km/hr.). It combines the benefits of both direct fuel injection and multi-port fuel injection to increase efficiency. Just like the Aventador, the Huracan opted for a mid-engine design for balance and better performance.
With a dry weight of 1422 kg (3135 lb.), the Huracan has a power to weight ratio of 2.36 kg per horsepower. It does 0 – 60 mph (97 km/h) with 2.5s, 0 – 300km/h (180 mph) at 27.6s and can brake from 100 km/h – 0 in under 30 meters.
The Huracan has optional “Lamborghini Dynamic Steering” that changes the steering performance from normal, comfortable steering to a racing feeling. With this, the vehicle is able to adapt to any suitable driving mode. The main control for changing the car’s performance according to driving conditions is the mode selector ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management). this controls the engine, the transmission, LDS, the All-Wheel Drive, the suspension and the electronic stability control.
The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) carries out precise measurements of the vehicle movements using on board sensors (3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes)
The car has a 7 speed dual clutch transmission, the ‘Doppia Frizione’ gearbox. Huracane will only be available with an automatic transmission with no manual option.
It is equipped with magnetically controlled suspension system, utilizing magnetorheological dampers to swiftly change how the suspension acts. What else can one get with this apart from superior driving performance, comfort and sophisticated road handling should the vehicle be subjected to extreme road conditions.
Features a choice for full electric control and heating of the sports seats, in addition to the standard lengthwise alignment and electric backrest.
The infotainment system features a 12.3 inch TFT virtual cockpit available with HD 3D computer graphics, Bluetooth, google earth GPS navigation system and a multimedia interface-like menu and dashboards controls powered by Nvidia Tegra
The car has full LED headlamps which provides higher contrasts in night conditions.
It has a wheelbase, length, width and height of 2620 mm, 4459 mm, 1924 mm, and 1165 mm respectively. The chassis is made from Aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid with its body from Aluminum and synthetic materials. The external mirrors are electrically operated, heated and foldable. The rear fixed spoiler has been integrated into the body; completely paneled underbody.
The Huracan come standard with driver, passenger and side airbags. They are equipped with passive side protection system featuring a front and rear specific collapsible areas. The active safety system on the other hand is largely made up of electronic stability control (ABS and TCS integrated).
The Aventador just like the Huracan is a mid-engine sports car. It is available in 2-door coupe and 2-door road star body styles. At its launch in 2011, the company announced the Aventador as the successor to the aging Murcielago.
The Aventador LP700-4 series features the new 6.5 L V12 engine with a maximum power and torque of 690 bhp (510 kW) and 689Nm (508 lb-ft) at 5500 rpm respectively, and can attain a top speed of 354 km/h (220 mph). This is Lamborghini’s fourth in-house engine and a second V12 design. It has 17.2 L/km combined fuel consumption.
The Aventador has a power to weight ratio of 2.254 kg per horsepower. It does 0 – 97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and can brake from 60 mph – 0 in 30 meters.
It uses a single clutch seven speed semi-automatic transmission capable of accomplishing gearshifts in 50 milliseconds. Absolute brilliance. Just like the Huracan, its AWD is electronically controlled, offering traction and handling capabilities based on their fourth generation technology.
Steering and Suspension
Aventador is equipped with push rod magneto-rheological active front and rear suspension with horizontal dampers and springs. This suspension type takes the double wishbone fully independent geometry. Its steering system is hydraulically assisted with the LDS technology.
A close look at the Aventador shows how much of it is inspired by modern aircraft right from the extensive use of planar surfaces and sharp creases to the innovative and interactive TFT LCD display. A second TFT display at the center of the instrument panel is devoted to multimedia and navigation functions. Visibility is surprisingly good, given how low and wide it is and the cabin is easy to understand and operate. Boot space is impressive, but the storage opportunities are a bit clumsy as is evident from the miniscule glove compartment.
The chassis, engine bonnet, rear air inlets and the spoiler are made from carbon fiber but other panels are from Aluminum and synthetic materials. The exterior mirrors, just like the Huracan, are electrically operated, heated and foldable. The Aventador makes extensive use of planar surfaces and sharp creases which are in line with the company’s styling. Another notable aerodynamic feature is the rear electronically operated spoiler with three positions completely paneled underbody. The wheels are equipped with 20 inch and 21 inch DIONE silver forged aluminum alloy front and rear rims respectively. It has a wheelbase, length, width and height of 2700mm, 4780 mm, 2030 mm, and 1136 mm respectively.
Come standard with driver, passenger and side airbags with knee airbags only available for specific markets. The Aventador and the Huracan contain similar active and passive safety systems, both adopting the side protection systems and electronic stability controls (ABS and TSC integrated).
Lamborghini Aventador This luxury car supercar is crazy expensive and crazy fast, it’s capable of amazing performance without feeling like it’s going to spin out into a ditch, which is refreshing in a supercar. Available as a coupe (for now), it has a 6.5-liter 730-hp V-12, a 7-speed automated manual transmission and all-wheel drive. For the ultimate, the Superveloce has 740 hp and a claimed top speed of 217 mph. In our testing, it did 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds.
EPA: 11/18 mpg 0-60: 2.7 sec HP: 740 hp Top Speed: 217 mph
The Lamborghini Centenario shape is a marked departure from Lamborghini’s current styling language, with proportions similar to a GT car, elements that evoke Formula 1 cars, and an aggressive tail that offers generous views of the car’s structure. The large touchscreen infotainment system brings the Aventador up to date with Chevys and Fords, but there’s still plenty of the brand’s signature fighter-jet fantasy in the switchgear and detailing.
Because it’s a modern supercar, the Centenario boasts an adjustable rear wing. It extends nearly six inches and can tilt up to 15 degrees. You can also notice that this car looks very sporty and elegant from front, sides, and rear. There are many redesigns that enhance the look. The interior is also really impressive with sport seats made from carbon fiber, covered dashboard, steering wheels, pillars, roof, door trim panel, etc. This also applies infotainment system.
The new Lamborghini Centenario represents a new, extremely precious piece in Lamborghini’s one-off strategy. It is a perfect example of the innovative design and the engineering skills of the bull-branded manufacturer. The best tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini, a man who managed to create a world-class brand, and who always believed that nothing is impossible, thus producing legendary and extraordinary vehicles that made history for super sports cars.
