Proton Releases New Car
Malaysian automaker Proton, which is currently suffering from slumping sales, recently unveiled their newest sedan. The Malaysian government which has a majority share in the automaker is currently having talks with Volkswagen AG. This development is considered as the reason why Proton has set high sales projection for the new sedan. The sales goal was not only for the domestic auto market but also includes exports to Europe.
The new sedan was actually meant to be unveiled before. But due to some reasons, the automaker postponed the unveiling and has only recently decided to release the car. With the unveiling of the new sedan, the Malaysian automaker is calling for the Malaysian government to push on with the deal that will see Volkswagen pouring in money on the cash-strapped automaker. In return, Volkswagen will have a strong presence in the Malaysian auto market.
The arrival of the new Proton Persona has been well received by critics and consumers alike. The styling of the new Proton sedan is considerably better looking than other Proton models.

Lamborghini Gallardo Or Ford Focus? Not Much of a Competition!
Every single driver will obviously have differing categories and stipulations regarding what makes the perfect car. Some will be of the opinion that power, speed and performance are the mark of a truly great car and suggest that the Bugatti Veyron or something similar is the perfect car. Others will hold esteem in a more aesthetic nature and put forward cars such as the Bentley Continental and the Aston Martin Vanquish as the real purveyors of automotive perfection. I have always held the opinion that the truly great cars don’t focus on one thing, but try to encapsulate the needs and desires of everyone into their designs and engineering. This is precisely why my favourite car is the brand new Ford Focus.
Now you may be laughing or deriding me for saying that I would rather own a Ford Focus than a Pagani Zonda or a Koenigsegg, but that simply isn’t true. I would love to own one of the many supercars or hypercars that are available on the market and if you gave me £1 Million to spend on a car I wouldn’t disappoint you. All I am trying …
Lamborghini Reventon $1.6 Million Car
There are expensive cars and there are non expensive ones. Some buy them out of need, some buy out of fondness. And maybe there are other types as well. But not all cars are similar. Many car lovers like collecting expensive sports cars. This is certainly a very expensive habit. Not everyone can follow it though. Such a habit becomes all the more difficult to follow when you want to have a Lamborghini Reventon. This is not because it is an ultra expensive sports car, but also because it is a limited edition car. Of course this is one of the major factors that add to its price though. Lamborghini manufactured only 20 Reventon cars and only one additional car which got manufactured for Lamborghini museum. It was produced in 2007 and now, you can buy just from some previous buyer.
Lamborghini Reventon is one of the most powerful cars in the world. The engine is a 6.5 liter twelve cylinder V12 engine that cranks up a whopping 661 horsepower at 8000 rpm and can generate maximum torque around 660 NM at 6000 rpm. It comes with a 6 speed manual transmission. Reventon can zoom …
History Of Lamborghini
Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by Ferrucio Lamborghini, a former army member who established their own company committed to building tractors. The tractor business developed as years passed as well as in 1970 another factory was founded to produce air conditioning units and heaters for buildings. The incredible success was celebrated in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy where the company established its headquarters.
But everything changed when he met Enzo Ferrari. It was the moment when his desire to build high-speed supercars with luxurious interiors revealed itself. Ferrucio complained to Enzo about a clutch problem that the Ferrari he owned had. Enzo told him that “the problem is not with the car but with the driver…” and that he was asked to take care of his tractors and leave the issue for those who get sound advice.
Disappointed through the answer received, Ferrucio dismounted the transmission of his car and found out that his car used exactly the same transmission as his tractors. Because of this discovery, he asked some talented men who worked for Enzo Ferrari including Franco Scaglione, Giotto Bizzarini and Gian Paolo Dallara to provide him help. As a result, the team created the perfect competitor …
Feature: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Goes Into Production!
Growing up, I didn’t hang posters of the Backstreet Boys, Leonardo DiCaprio or 2pac. My room was adorned with four posters that I still remember vividly. The Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa, Nissan Skyline R34 and the McLaren F1, you know, the orange one with the wooded backdrop that we are probably all too familiar with. It’s been many years since I’ve truly fantasized about owning one of those rare exotics, even though by today’s standards they would be considered fairly “cheap” relative to their original MSRPs. So what would I hang on my wall right now? It wouldn’t be the Bugatti Veyron – that would be almost too predictable, nor would it be the Mercedes-Benz SLS – that would be too clich. The Nissan GTR would be a good option but then that would be too practical. What car could I hang up today that I know would be cutthroat, nosebleedingly awesome like the cars of my youth? I haven’t been able to find a car for years, until now: The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was originally revealed as only a technological showcase concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. …
Lamborghini Concept S
The Lamborghini Concept S was created by Lamborghini’s Head of Design, Luc Donckerwolke that was inspired of the world’s sports car, the Lamborghini Gallardo. The designer used its floor plan as base for its new project. The Lamborghini Concept S is considered an embodiment of the open car concept. This unique supercar was well accepted by the audience and its designer received several awards due to his revolutionary vision when his concept car was revealed. It is regarded as the fierce competitor for the Ferrari F430 Spider and most people consider the Lamborghini Concept S would be the winner when it comes to the entire assessment.
This supercar was displayed the very first time in the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It is considered that the Lamborghini Concept S was envisioned like a modern interpretation of the single-seat roadster of history. The designers used a “change wind” instead of the conventional windscreen and divided the inside into two different compartments. The “change wind” is strategically placed in order to give an awesome look to the vehicle and in the same time frame can serve as an aura inlet for the engine placed behind the seats. As a result, …
Lamborghini Gallardo Overview

Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Review
Are you ready for a Super Car that can Rock An Roll? Do you want to feel the wind in your hair? If so than I have the perfect Super Car For you!
The first Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster was released in the 2005 Murcielago line up, but the latest version the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster that is capable of going from 0 to 60 in about 3.4 seconds is the one we are concerned about. This enhanced version of the Murcielago Roadster was first released in the 2007 model. It almost looks pretty much like the coupe version of the Murcielago except for the addition of cooling vents behind the air
intakes, and a retractable canvas roof.The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster exterior also features the wonderful scissor doors, side air scoops that automatically open up at speed, a rear spoiler that can be adjusted to an angle of 70 degrees, folding side mirrors for increased aerodynamics, and electronic Launch Control are also included. Inside the interior has been changed just slightly from the standard coupe, and the body structure has also been reinforced to compensate for a lack of a solid roof panel.

The New Lamborghini Gallardo and Gallardo LP570-4 With Forged Wheels
Throughout the history of Lamborghini, no model has been more successful than the Gallardo, selling over 13,000 units since it was first released to the public back in 2003. The super car has gone through a number of generations and redesigns and before the next major update the automaker has decided to refresh the current-generation car and showcase it at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The new car features new looks with different colored bodywork, forged wheels, and updated LED lighting along with the same powerful engine and transmission as used in pre-updated models.
The first model showcased at the Paris Motor Show was the standard Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The refreshed design makes the super car appear more dynamic and aggressive while incorporating new technology such as LED lighting inside the headlights and taillights. A new fascia was given to the Gallardo that features trapezoidal shapes and larger air intakes to help cool the engine and braking system. The update also helps to generate downforce by incorporating a new spoiler for better handling at high speeds.
