…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago?

Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago

Anyone can dress up their Lamborghini with a new set of wheels or a fancy spoiler, but it takes a special kind of tuner to take apart the raging bull and piece it back together as a carbon fiber interpretation of its former self. Thus, the Prindiville Prestige Lamborghini Murcielago is no ordinary supercar.

When compared to a standard (hah!) Lamborghini, the Prindiville variation only retains the front compartment lid, as everything (and I do mean everything) else has been changed, right down to the roof panel.

There’s a bolder, more assertive front valance, eye-catching sills, a more dynamic rear valance through which exits a specially designed titanium sports exhaust system, ‘handle-less’ doors with remote electric opening, and a restyled engine bay cover with transparent cooling louvres.

Plus, as if that wasn’t enough, all of the exterior bits and pieces have been made of carbon fiber for that rare and racy look and feel.

Inside, rich leather and hand-finished aluminum accents treat the driver to all the luxury that a supercar owner could want or need, and ‘little touches’ like specially engineered aluminum air vents remind the driver that they’re not in an average Lamborghini.

Dream car status doesn’t come cheap, as the Prindiville Murcielago reportedly sold for more than a million dollars, but if you’re in the mood for a custom creation that won’t be matched by anything on the road, then give them a call and see what they can do, because apparently, the sky’s the limit.

…Sam Hubinette can make the Lamborghini Murcielago SV dance?

It’s not like the new Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce needs any help in the badass department, but just in case, they put one in the hands of Sam Hubinette and let him loose on an innocent patch of asphalt.

The result is nothing short of automotive perfection:

(And just to note, this isn’t Hubinette’s first time behind the wheels of a bull. Here he is showing off in the Gallardo LP560-4.)

…The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is perfection?

When Lamborghini decides to build a car like the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, you don’t ask questions, you just say thank you and quietly pick your jaw up off the floor.

Lamborghini themselves even describe this car as “exceptionally purist”, and I can’t find any reason to disagree. The 670 indicates a horsepower jump from the already potent LP 640 to 670 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque out of the 6.5L V12. Extra power wasn’t the only thing Lamborghini managed to squeeze out of the package though, as more than 220 lbs of weight savings have occurred, leaving the car with a 0-62 time of just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 212 mph. However, if you opt for the larger “Aeropack Wing”, the added downforce will limit you to only 209 mph.

Minor, yet still stunning details include a new engine cover with three hexagonal, transparent polymer plates supported by a carbon fiber framework, and an interior that is upholstered entirely in Alcantara with stitching that matches the exterior color of the car. Finally, the fighter pilot theme is carried over from the Reventon, with landing strip accents on the seats and floor panels.

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce isn’t a car that anyone needs, but when it takes an entire breath of air to say the very large and very Italian name, and each word sounds faster than the next, you know it’s a car that almost everyone is going to want.

…Lamborghini should make a pair of heels?

Lamborghini Heels

Unfortunately they’re just a concept, because these Lamborghini Superleggera heels are seriously hot.

Featuring the nose of the car for the toes, including working grill vents, the tail of the car for the heel, the Superleggera stripe down the sides, a side scoop around back and a carbon fiber heel, they’ve got all the right design cues in all the right places without being too gaudy or over done.

Well done Tim Cooper; Well done.

…The Whip will redefine showboarding?

The Whip

When Cheetah Ultra Sports set out to build a new snowboard, they weren’t worried about lifestyles, cultures or snazzy graphics. Their goal was entirely technical: To design and build a better snowboard without rules or limitations of any kind.

Four years later, and after countless hours of research and development, they think they’ve reached that goal with The Whip FR-117, aka The Lamborghini of Snowboards.

According to Cheetah, The Whip will:

  • Fit better.
  • Feel lighter.
  • Go faster.
  • Cruise smoother.
  • Turn quicker.
  • Edge harder.
  • Carve sharper.
  • Jump higher.
  • Land softer.

And it will do all that without chatter, and without heel or toe drag. They’re even claiming that most experienced riders will have to relax their riding style just to get greater performance out of the board, because it’s so easy to ride.

The key to The Whip’s performance is an open V hull that is specifically designed for speed and maneuverability. They board is made out of wood, plastic, steel edges and carbon composite, and by reducing the amount of board that comes in contact with the snow, this smaller surface creates less drag, which translates into more gliding speed, better maneuverability, quicker edge-to-edge transitions, and more.

For now, The Whip is being hand made in very limited production, and each board is carefully hand crafted and will include an individual serial number, so if you want one, get your name on the waiting list and put down $1899 for a pre-order, and you’ll be killing the slopes in no time.
