Lambo Like a Designer Would Lambo

I like my Lamborghinis like I like my cheese-burgers : fast and flamboyant. And since you are an aficionado of such big and scary things, we’ll let you decide whether its worth 495,000 EUR for a one- of-a-kind Italian supercar designed by celebrity “skulls and swishes” fashion designer Christian Audigier.

Also the car goes very fast.

Edo Competition Motorsports, known for their benchmark-customization and modification of supercars has “pulled out all the stops” as they say; cooperating with Christian Audigier to create, YES(!), the fastest and most flamboyant Lamborghini ever made. It’s dubbed the “edo LP 710″ and 5 will be produced. Each car is unique with designs chosen from a limited selection of graphic options by the customer. These graphics are designed by Audigier, painted by Austrian pinstriper Marcus Pfeil.

The engine is a 6.5 liter V12 with output at 710 hp and 700 Nm (516 ft-lb). Acceleration at 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 10 seconds. Top speed at >360 km/h (>224 mph).

Net price: 495,000 EUR (690,000 USD)

The wheels are also, yes you guessed it, quite nice. The “edo LP 710″ has a 19in light-alloy wheel set with 2 tires in the front and 2 in the back! Oh and they are: 225/35 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the front and 325/30 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the back.

Scary.

Finally, edo’s made a single disc clutch for this ‘gini and has taken the 4-wheel drive standard setup and turned it into a 2-wheel setup (rear wheel drive). With this modification in place, the edo’gini saves 40 kg (88 lb) – and ya know it’s gonna b’mo agile on da’ streets.

Note: I want at least 13 skulls on the one they’re sending me. I told them that if there’s even one skull missing or extra, I’m gonna just be so pissed!
