Italy's state police have a sleek new addition -- a Lamborghini Gallardo with a top speed of 309 km/h (192 mph). The car, which has a list price of $165,000 (€145,180), comes fully equipped -- flashing blue light and siren included. The Lamborghini will be used on the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway in southern Italy for emergencies and to transport organs for transplant. Lamborghini, which is owned by Volkswagen and based near Bologna in northern Italy, donated the car.
Lamborghini absolutely obliterated its own production record in 2003 by building 1305 cars, or about 300 more than it expected to. This was due entirely to the launch of the new Gallardo model, which would have been responsible for a new record even if Lamborghini had built nothing else. 890 were made, compared with the company's busiest year back in 1991 when it sent a total of 672 units out of the factory. The Gallardo practically amounts to a mass-production Lamborghini. The other car in the range, the Murcielago, accouted for a much more modest 415 units. That figure is expected to drop to around 400 in 2003, even with the introduction of the open-topped Murcielago Barchetta, which will be displayed at the Geneva Show in March and will probably account for around half the model's sales from then on. A roadster version of the Gallardo should be on sale by early 2006. Before the end of the decade Lamborghini hopes to have annual production running at an unprecedented 3000 units, an increase over the 1991 figure which can't be unconnected with the company having been brought into the Volkswagen Group.
The 1970 Urraco represented a bright future for Lamborghini. As the company’s first move downmarket, the car was designed to compete with the Porsche 911 and Ferrari Dino in the small-GT field. During tests of a Urraco P250 in February 1971, Road& Trackobserved that the engine"was designed for use either with a rear-drive layout or a front-engine, front-drive arrangement, which makes us wonder if Lamborghini is planning a sedan."Indeed, Ferruccio Lamborghini hoped profits from the Urraco would fund spinoffs using variations of the same mechanicals, including a mass-production, front-engined sedan. The greater sales volume generated by the Urraco would also allow Lamborghini’s automotive division to finally turn a profit, rather than being kept afloat by the company’s tractor sales.
WHEN THE STUNNING COUNTACH LP500 prototype debuted at Geneva in 1971, the automotive media doubted it would see production. The Lamborghini’s angular shape, with its steeply raked windshield and scissor doors, was outrageously different from supercars that had come before. Turns out this Miura successor, a car even more focused on providing the ultimate in street performance, would redefine the genre with a design that has proved to be timeless. More about it here.
Hard to believe, but Lamborghini has been around for forty years. The small Italian company that started out as a humble tractor manufacturer has developed into one of the world's most recognized makers of exotic supercars. To celebrate their 40 anniversary, Lamborghini will be producing 50 Jubilee Edition Murciélago supercars. After a legacy that includes such classic sports cars as the 350 GT, Miura, Countach and Diablo, it's now time to celebrate four decades of the fighting bull. To celebrate Lamborghini will be producing 50 Jubilee Edition Murciélago supercars, brimming with performance and customized details to commemorate the brand's success.
Say Lamborghini, and the mind conjures up a fantastic line of supercars with V12 engines and 300 kmph top speeds such as the Countach, Diablo and Miura, or the latest hot rods such as the Murcielago and Gallardo. But how about Lamborghini tractors? Yes, there are those too. Slick tractors sporting Lamborghini’s raging bull insignia may be seen plowing through Indian fields by next year if plans by the Italy-based company, the $1 billion Same Deutz-Fahr Group, which owns Lamborghini, materialise.
A unique tour of the Lamborghini factory where the marque builds its exclusive cars. Great pictures and the history intricately replayed before your very own eyes.

For 40 years, Italy's Lamborghini has thrilled elite buyers with its sleek and speedy sports cars. Now, after losing money for most of its history, the company is on track to earn a profit, the company's CEO says. The company expects a 2003 turnover of 170 million euros ($192 million) but is still cautious about ramping up output too much, lest the cars lose their cachet.
The new Lamborghini Gallardo is out and so is with it our desire to know more about this 'lesser devil'. Bob English drives this bull at Vallelunga, Italy, just outside Rome to come up to the conclusion that this car can be tamed as a daily driver. "As I walked out of the cool, quiet, dark briefing room where I'd been brought up to speed on the technical aspects of the new Gallardo (Guy-ardo) I was enveloped by the heat and that unique 'almost silence' that falls over racetracks - usually in anticipation of what's to come.", says he.
Now, following a successful two-day test in Hockenheim, Germany, the VICI Racing Lamborghini is set to make its long awaited debut in the American LeMans Series. The car performed flawlessly and showed great promise bringing a smile to the face of everyone present. F1 pilot Gaston Mazzacane turned out some very fast laps during his first time behind the wheel of the Lamborghini. "It’s a very fast car," Gaston said. "A sturdy, reliable, and fun to drive automobile. It accepts set up changes easily and improves its performance steadily." Gaston goes on to say “ I feel very comfortable driving it and I am happy to be a part of the Lamborghini project with VICI Racing."

Lamborghini has been doing it for nearly more than 40 years: creating extreme, mid-engine sports cars that populate the automotive dreams of teenagers the world over. First it was the Countach. Then the Diablo. And now, the Murcielago. Though clearly a spiritual descendant of the first two, the Murcielago comes from a new Lamborghini, owned by Volkswagen, overseen by Audi, and intent on building high-quality-yet-outrageous machinery that can, and will, be driven instead of just fawned over.
The Gallardo—say ga-yar-doh—seems like a miniature Murciélago, but the aluminum V-10–powered sports car is new from the ground up. Insiders swear the mid-engined two-seat coupe is as fast as its big brother V-12 up to 150 mph. For 15 years, since the Lamborghini factory at Sant’Agata last threatened the rule of Ferrari’s V-8 (then the 308/328) with the Jalpa, various owners, including Chrysler, have dangled the promise of a baby Lambo in front of the motoring world. Now, finally, under Audi management, Lamborghini can deliver on that tantalizing prospect.
Lamborghini will decide whether to add a third model by year end. The Italian super-luxury sports car maker, purchased by Audi in 1998, has returned to profitability and is about to open a vintage car restoration center. Lamborghini is not planning to enter car racing, but its V-12 L800 marine engine dominates the Class One Offshore World Championship - the Formula One of boat racing - winning its seventh world title in eight years in 2002.

It has been 40 years since Ferruccio Lamborghini built his first Lamborghini and today the cars stand for the very best in the automotive world.
