Here is a first hand look at how the Aventador was created from start to finish. It’s amazing to see the amount of precision, technology and manual labor that goes into the creation of Lamborghini’s newest monster, but that’s why they’re the best.
Autocar hald the privilege of being one of the first to do a video review of the Lamborghini Aventador. This would normally be nothing too special just the presenter talking about how fast, loud, and awesome the new Lamborghini is. And for the most part that is exactly what this video does, but the day they took out this raging bull the track was soaking wet. So as you would expect this lead to some pretty epic drifts, making this video review of the Lamborghini Aventador something special.
The Lamborghini Aventador was the hottest car at Geneva and now it was spotted in the California desert shooting a commercial. Edmunds inside line has put up a video behind the scenes of the filming. Watching the Aventador rip around the desert is impressive and I’m sure will look even better after its edited by Lamborghini’s crew. On top of a video, some guys over at Worldcarfans.com spotted the Lamborghini on a California highway. The picture shows a cop car in it too, which means its either part of the commercial, or someone got a little carried away. Be sure to check back here to see the full commercial when it comes out, but for now check out the pictures and video of the Lamborghini Aventador spotted in California.

With the Geneva Motor Show coming to a close we’re going to talk about the solid new cars that were revealed this year in Rezmoto’s Geneva Roundup. We’re going to do this in two parts counting the top 5 best production and concept cars that were unveiled at the show.
Top 5 Best Production Cars
1. Koenigsegg Agera R
This beauty is number one on our list for a few reasons. The engine is outrageous with 1,115 HP 885 lb-ft of torque. It looks like a hot wheels car we all played with as kids. And for a supercar it’s practical with a nice big aerodynamic roof rack. Really it has everything you would want in a supercar to hit the top spot on our list.
2.Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Lamborghini’s successor to the Gallardo is just as we all expected, a faster more finely tuned car. It has the classic edgy lines that give a Lamborghini its identity and the power to match hitting 60 in 2.9 seconds. What is there not to like?
3. Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate
We had to put up at least one wagon in the top 3 or we wouldn’t be a euro blog. As far as wagons go this is one of the hottest. Putting out 481 hp on the proven C63 AMG platform can only be a good thing. Throw in a sick set of wheels and you have our number three production car of Geneva.
4. Brabus 700 Biturbo SLS Amg
The Brabus 700 Biturbo is an amazing example of aftermarket tuning done right. The subtle body kit and custom wheels tell you this car is not the “run of the mill” SLS AMG, but it doesn’t hit you over the head with it. The engine is tuned beyond belief with a top speed of 213 mph. Brabus did well with this one.
5. Audi RS3 Sportback
Another new sport hatchback for 2012 and a new addition to Audi’s RS line that will be replacing the classic RS4, how could this go wrong? 0-62 in 4.6 seconds makes it a bit slower than the Merc but it does cost less. However, there is some bad news that dropped it to the number 5 spot. Audi has not clarified if this RS will come to the U.S.; However, for the European readers it will be on sale in the first half of 2011
We here at Rezmoto love car configurators, and there is no better new car to configure right now than a Lamborghini Aventador. Well except maybe a Koenigsegg Agrea, but that’s not the point. The point is how much fun these things are to play with. Sure, I will probably never own either one of those cars, but it’s the child like fantasy of standing in the show room with every option in front you that make these things so fun. You can mix and match anything you want from the classy to the crazy. With that said the Aventador configurator is a bit limited. All you can choose is interior or exterior colors along with a few options. The Veyron editor we talked about a few months ago has a lot more options. Along with the Lamborghini Aventador configurator here, we’ll list a few others below.
Move over Aventador you’re not the the only supercar coming to Geneva, the Koenigsegg Agrea R is also here to play. With a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 putting out 1,115 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque this car means business. When it comes to style I have to say I like the racing look of the Agrea more than the Aventador. The rigidity of the all carbon fiber body allows for the roof to be removed giving you the convertible option. Going on a log trip, say the GoldRush Rally? Koenigsegg has you covered with a custom carbon fiber roof box designed by Thule. With the info we have out now the Agrea is definitely my overall favorite going into Geneva this week. Be sure to check back for more details on the Koenigsegg Agrea R when it makes its debut.
Just when you think Facebook could not get any better, now you can find spied shots of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 mixed in with the goofy app’s and your ex-roomate’s new photo gallery. The Lamborghini Club of Los Angeles has released the first good frontal shot of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 we have seen yet.

Beautiful huh? The Bat-mobile-esque front end is typical Lamborghini, as is the low slung roof and aggressive side panels. Expected to be housing a beefy V12 putting down 700+ horsepower, this is no dog. I’m interested to see what the final version will look like without all of the black cladding and tape-job its sporting in the picture. A mix of carbon perhaps? Only time will tell. I hope they ditch those wheels though, they are not my favorite. In my opinion, Lamborghini has not done the best job with wheel design in the past. These wheels don’t match very well with the aggressive lines, sharp corners, and masculine characteristics. Perhaps they should have someone at Ferrari lend a hand in wheel design.
