Fans of speed and Italian luxury had a reason to be excited last week. Why?—Lamborghini at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Last week Lamborghini made it’s UK debut of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce at Goodwood in West Sussex.
The Aventador Superveloce is the fastest Lamborghini of all time, clocking a sub-seven minute lap at the world famous Nürburgring track.
Powered by a high-performance V12 engine, the car is affirmation of Lamborghini’s continued commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering. The strategic use of carbon fibre make the frame 50 kg lighter than most of its counterparts and, combined with the 750 horsepower engine, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds before reaching a top speed of more than 350 km/h.
The Aventador Superveloce was joined by the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.
First released less than three years ago, the Huracán is loaded with a 5.2L, V10 engine that generates more than 600 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. An insanely low power-to-weight ratio (2.33 kig/hp) means the car can hit 100 KM/h in 3.2 seconds.
Both the Aventador Superveloce and the Huracán were on display outside Ristorante 1963. The Italian-themed restaurant was open to the public and featured a menu celebrating Lamborghini’s year of inception: 1963.
The third of the three Lamborghini stars that were on display during the Goodwood Festival of Speed was the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, the Huracán’s racing cousin.
It made its international debut this year at the one-make Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series in Europe, Asia and North America. The 620 hp car employs a rear-wheel drive traction system commonly seen in GT3 racing. The one on display at Goodwood was provided by owner/driver Tim Richards and maintained by MTech Racing.
The Super Trofeo and the Lamborghini Huracán appeared during the GT Racer and Michelin Supercar runs respectively.
