Try to Tame This Bull

Lamborghini just announced the new replacement for the Gallardo. Feast thine eyes on the new Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4. The name ‘Huracán’ comes from a famous fighting bull, but this is one bull you’ll definitely want to ride. Just look at the power. Its V10 engine pumps out 610 mother-lovin’ horses (which is where Lambo got the name for the Huracán LP610-4). Go from 0 to 62mph in 3.2 seconds. Get one of these, go to the beach and don’t even worry about a pick-up line.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse

So, which rapper will be the first to buy this? The newest Gallardo model from Lamborghini, the all-wheel drive LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, or LP5704SC for short, is an offshoot of the Gallardo Superleggera. It comes complete with a 570hp V10 and goes from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, or 0-124 in 10.4 seconds. But what can it do in 8.6 seconds?? Inside, Lambo’s outfitted the bucket seats, door panels, center console cover, handbrake frame and lower section of the steering wheel with carbon fiber. The cup holder is plastic though. You’re just gonna have to make do with that. But think of all the wet t-shirt contests you can film with this car.

Lamborghini Veneno: Ole Cow!

The Lamborghini Veneno is named after a fighting bull that reportedly killed a matador in 1914 (surprisingly the murder was committed with rat poison), and man if that isn’t a fitting moniker for an amazing machine. The 6.5-liter V12 engine turns out an insane 750 horsepower and a top speed of 220 miles per hour. The seven speed transmission and full-time all-wheel-drive are also nice, but the stunning design and the fact that the entire chassis is made from carbon fiber reinforced plastics is really what gets you to the $3.9 million price tag. Oh, and there are only three of these in the world, so… arriba!

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

One could argue that a convertible Lamborghini is almost an embarrassment of riches, but if one is rich, I suspect embarrassment about anything becomes much more tolerable. Scrounge up $381,000 and prepare for the most satisfying brand of shame imaginable with the new Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. The two-piece roof must be removed by hand, but being that it’s made from carbon fiber and weighs about 13 pounds, let’s not sweat it. Like the coupe version, the Aventador Roadster dances with a 6.5-liter, 700-horsepower V12 engine, getting you 0-62 miles per hour comes up in – good lord – 3.0 seconds! Talk about embarrassing.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Tecnica

Considering its lightweight design, I suppose there was room to spare for a longer name, and the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Tecnica certainly takes advantage of the extra space. Its V-10 engine can generate 570 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, and there’s nothing on the outside to slow it down, with its pointy nose, air intakes, and aerodynamic spoiler. If you’re looking for a car with a top speed of 202 mph and a name that makes you long for the simplicity of say, Giada De Laurentiis, this is the vehicle for you.

Lamborghini Urus SUV

What’s the difference between a kidnap victim and a Lamborghini? You don’t have a Lamborghini in your garage (badum-tsh). Now you CAN have a Lamborghini in your garage, although the joke will have to be altered slightly. Named after the ancient beast of burden that roamed Eurasia at some point in history, the Lamborghini Urus SUV boasts a V10 engine and a $200,000 price tag. When you have that much scratch lying around, your only choices are between buying the Urus or purchasing a small island where you hunt poor people for sport. Now you can drop your children off in style at rich people soccer practice, where the soccer balls are studded with rubies and the turf is made from slightly more expensive turf (but there’s honestly no difference between the two).

SFC Goes to CES on Thursday

Thursday was another day of scouring the CES showroom floor for something awesome. Sadly, the day started late and we ended up in the Venetian for a while which was the [email protected] show consisting mostly of camera tripods, bags and other accessories. Though it wasn’t all remote triggers and Lensbabies. We stumbled on the Italian made Android smart watch, otherwise know as the i’m Watch otherwise known as the Dick Tracy watch. Interestingly enough, it could communicate with an iPhone. Steve Jobs must be rolling in his grave.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder

Talk about bold. Can you imagine the amount of jaws that will need to be picked up off the ground when you show up at The Cheesecake Factory in not only a Lamborghini, but a Lamborghini convertible?! The newest creation from the iconic Italian automaker is the Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder, the more revealing version of the Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni. When  Jacob, the pimply-faced valet, asks you about the specs, tell him this rear-wheel drive Lambo has a longitudinally mounted 5.2 liter  V10 engine that churns out 550 horsepower, enabling you – not him – to do 0-62 mph in a pretty damn brisk 4.2 seconds. Then tell him to shoo–there’s a Ford Focus that needs parking.
