See that pretty, black coupe over to the right? That’s the 2014 Cadillac ELR, and we think it’s perhaps the best-looking Cadillac currently on the market. Problem is, it’s also one of the most expensive, and we’re not so so it’s worth it’s shockingly (pun intended, sadly) high price. In fact, we’re pretty darn sure it isn’t. Read our full report to find out why.

The 2014 Paris Motor Show is right around the corner, which means it’s just about time to expect the leaky wheels of the internet to start showing off the carefully hidden treasure trove of debuts planned for the City of Lights. In this case, though, it was a magazine that did the leaking, and it’s a tasty new concept from Lamborghini on its pages.

There’s a new Chevy Camaro headed our way, but before it gets Stateside, the boffins at GM need to make sure it’s completely ready for the road – and that means testing on Germany’s notoriously high-speed roadways and race tracks. And that, in turn, means spy shots. See the latest round of camo’d test mules right here.

Lamborghini Asterion leaked in print ahead of Paris debut

Lamborghini Asterion Leak 002 Lamborghini Asterion leaked in print ahead of Paris debutThe first purportedly leaked images from an Italian magazine of Lamborghini’s new vehicle for the Paris Motor Show are on the web, and they closely echo the model’s silhouette from the teaser. However, there’s no official mention of a name to confirm that this is being called the Asterion, as rumored.

The profile image (right) definitely suggests this is the same model that Lamborghini is previewing for Paris. It features the same slightly arcing hood and roof, and it has a rear air intake behind the door. The shape also seems to support the belief that this concept has a 2+2 seating arrangement to echo earlier Lambo models like Espada.

According to Autoblog.nl, which has posted the images, the vehicle may use a hybrid V10 with three electric motors to produce in the neighborhood of 900 horsepower. Furthermore, it claims that this might be just one of two concepts that Lamborghini is bringing to the Paris show. For now it’s still a mystery, but all should be revealed on October 2 for the vehicle’s unveiling.

Is Lamborghini readying a hybrid for Paris?

lamborghini paris teaser 1 Is Lamborghini readying a hybrid for Paris?

 Is Lamborghini readying a hybrid for Paris?Lamborghini had us seriously stumped when it released its teaser (above) for a new vehicle that’ll debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. The image seemed to depict a fastback GT somewhat reminiscent of Lambo’s earlier 2+2 models like the Espada, and was accompanied by the sentence, “Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it.” We’re still not entirely sure what the means, but a possible leaked logo for the car might offer some big hints about its powertrain.

According to the Office of Harmonization in the Internal Market in Europe, Lamborghini applied for a trademark on the name Asterion on September 15 to cover vehicles, clothing, toys and video games. The logo (right) included a lightning bolt slashing through the ‘O’ in the word. That could suggest this forthcoming vehicle is a hybrid, but it’s also not clear whether we’re going to be hearing about a pure concept, or a production model.

The name itself might also be a tell. Asterion is one of the names for the Minotaur in Greek mythology, which is a creature that is part bull and part man. This could be another indication that the concept combines the traditional Lamborghini style with something else.

The possibility of a hybrid Lamborghini really shouldn’t be a total shock, though. The latest run of hypercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1 already use the tech, and the company’s own Aventador has capacitors to power its stop/start system. Still, we can’t wait to see what the new Lambo has to show when it debuts on October 2.

Lamborghini announces new car coming to Paris with cryptic teaser

lamborghini paris teaser Lamborghini announces new car coming to Paris with cryptic teaser

“Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it.”

What in the name of Ferruccio Lamborghini does that mean? Well, we have no idea, and we think that’s sorta the point. Lamborghini wants us to know that it’s bringing something very interesting to the Paris Motor Show, and it wants the public and press alike wondering what it might have up its finely tailored sleeves.

Taking a look at the white-on-black line drawing that accompanies the teaser (click above to enlarge), we note a pretty clear fastback shape, which reminds us of the classic Espada, and we also know that the brand has long been considering a four-door sedan to add to its high-performance portfolio. Either way, a four-seater or a four-door machine could seemingly fit with the “double it” tagline of the teaser, and we’re really just speculating anyway.

So, while we get nary a blink of sleep ahead of the car’s October 2nd Paris debut, feel free to dissect the teaser yourselves and let us know what you think it is in Comments.

Lamborghini to price Urus similar to Huracán

lamborghini urus gallardo Lamborghini to price Urus similar to Huracán

If and when the Urus project is finally approved for production, it will take Lamborghini into not one but several new territories. For one, it will be the company’s first SUV since the demise of the LM002 in 1993. It’ll also be the company’s first front-engined model since the demise of the Jalpa and Espada in the late ’70s, and its first model to offer hybrid and turbocharged powertrains in, well… ever. Just don’t expect it to be its cheapest model.

According to Motoring.com.au, in speaking with Lamborghini sales and marketing execs, the Urus “will be priced similarly to the Huracán,” which is currently the Raging Bull marque’s entry-level model. That doesn’t mean, necessarily, that the Urus (pictured above in Beijing alongside the previous Gallardo) couldn’t undercut the Huracán’s price slightly – especially since it will likely offer more than one engine option – but don’t expect it to come cheap.

The Huracán starts in the US for $237,250. If, as reported, the Urus commands a similar price, that would make it the most expensive SUV on the market. That is, at least, before other high-end rivals from the likes of Bentley and Maserati get into the game.

Lambo considering Huracán GT3 for United SportsCar Championship

07 lamborghini huracan super trofeo quail 1 Lambo considering Huracán GT3 for United SportsCar Championship

With all the versions of the Gallardo that Lamborghini made over the course of that model’s dozen year lifecycle, we knew the debut of the new Huracán would only be the start. And now we’re getting an idea of what Sant’Agata has in store. Before too long, there’ll be a new Spyder, and likely a rear-drive version as well. But racing teams are more eagerly anticipating the new competition versions. There’s the new Super Trofeo spec racer that Lambo unveiled in Monterey a couple of weeks ago, but now we’re receiving word of a new GT3 racer as well.

Based closely on the Super Trofeo, the Huracán GT3 is reportedly being designed to meet the regulations of numerous racing series – including, the latest reports will have us know, the United SportsCar Championship that competes in North America. This according to Sportscar365.com, which spoke to Lamborghini’s chief test driver Giorgio Sanna at Virginia International Raceway recently.

Unlike some of its rivals, racing has not traditionally been a core value at Lamborghini, but it has competed here and there. It previously relied on Reiter Engineering to develop racing versions of the Murcielago and Gallardo, but is said to be doing the Huracán GT3 almost entirely in-house, with a modicum of input from Dallara, the racing chassis manufacturer founded by the man widely credited with developing the Miura and Espada in the 1960s.

The Huracán GT3 would likely be sold to privateer teams who would enter it in individual racing series with support from the factory. Among its competitors would be the 911 RSR, R8 LMS and Continental GT3 offered by sister companies Porsche, Audi and Bentley, who have evidently found enough success on the circuit for Lambo to follow in its footsteps.

Lamborghini’s Huracan quicker than its costlier Aventador?

2015 lamborghini huracan lp610 4 16 1 Lamborghinis Huracan quicker than its costlier Aventador?

Car and Driver threw a leg over the Lamborghini Huracán and rode it hard all around the 16-turn Circuito Internationale Nardò, next to the banked oval that’s brought us many a top-speed video. On the way to discovering the bull calf sweetly eclipses the Gallardo it replaces, CD also discovered that – comparing their own tests – it is faster from zero to 60 miles per hour than its paterfamilias, the Aventador.

Now, we should all know that 0-60 tests are an imprecise discipline, but CD’s Eric Tingwall torched the sprint in the Huracán in 2.5 seconds – yes, faster than a whole lot of other very expensive super-coupes. In the magazine’s last instrumented test of the Aventador Aaron Robinson ran 3.0 seconds, and for more Aventador perspective we can compare Motor Trend‘s 2.8 seconds, also scored at Nardo, Road & Track at 2.7 seconds and Lamborghini’s estimated 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds. Any way you chop that up, 2.5 seconds beats it. A bit of a shock, then: Lamborghini lists the Huracán’s 0-62 mph time as 3.2 seconds.

We’ll get a more precise idea of the discrepancy when more tests come online, but for the moment – and in this one respect – we’ve got the $241,945, 602-horsepower Huracán showing its angry backside to the $397,500, 691-hp Aventador. Even if it remains true, though, we’re not sure it matters; in a figurative case of Predator versus Alien, it’s arguable that the only way to be wrong is not to own one.
