Speculation

Two new V12-powered Lamborghinis coming this year

At the end of its 2020 year end sales result press release, Lamborghini tacked on a bit of a spoiler. The automaker, who traditionally plays its development hand close to its chest, revealed that its planning on release two new products in addition to the Huracán STO that will be "based on the iconic V12."

That's it. That's all we know. Well, kind of.

Word is that next-generation Lamborghini products are delayed so the two new V12-engined machines are likely variants of vehicles already in the Lambo stable. There's a trio of possibilities there including the Aventador, Urus, Sìan, and Huracán.

Looking down the roster of products, the Aventador looks like the most likely model to get a new model infusion. There's been a rash of new Huracáns lately, including the Huracán STO, while the Aventador just celebrated its 10,000th build.

Could an Aventador STO be in the works? If there's one thing that Lamborghini knows how to do, it's make an even more track-ready car.

Huracán and Urus models also already have Capsule variants. That would be an easier addition to the Aventador lineup than the Aventador STO. Capsule models traditionally feature fresh paint colors and interior accents but nothing in the way of performance enhancements.

A one-of-one might not be worthy of the type of tease that the Italian sports car brand is layout out here though it remains a possibility.

There is also the possibility of a special edition Lamborghini debuting to round out the 2021 model roster. Lamborghini could also be developing a new Sìan model. The Sìan FKP 37 and Sìan Roadster are limited edition models.

One thing is for certain. We won't know until Lamborghini is ready to let the cat out of the bag.

The 11th-generaiton Honda Civic Sedan has broken cover.

Marie was a little bit country and Donny was a little bit rock and roll. The design of the redesigned 2022 Honda Civic Sedan looks a little bit modern and a little bit vintage - and it's all a heck of a lot less polarizing than the previous generation.

Today Honda has offered the first official fully lighted glimpse of the 11th-generation Civic, which is set to officially debut April 28. The design of the model was previewed last year with the Civic Prototype.

Honda openly admits that the look of the new Civic was inspired by the last. Head into the trove of internet photos of the fourth- and fifth-generation Civic to see parallels in design. Honda said that designers upheld Honda's human-centric design philosophy in the new model while also increasing the safety.

The result is a car that looks very much like a sedan but still retains sporty attributes. It also looks more like the Accord in this generation than the last. In the photo provided by Honda, the new Civic is in Touring trim level form.

Honda said that the car's interior design, which they haven't shown photos of yet, is "uncluttered", has "simple ergonomics", and delivers "exceptional visibility".

The 2022 Civic will arrive on dealership lots this summer.

Also this summer, the Honda Civic Tour will return for its 20th season. There will be two stops on the virtual tour that will be livestreamed on the Honda Stage YouTube channel. The first event will start at 5:00 p.m. PT, on April 28. The virtual concert event on Twitch will also give Civic Tour fans a special first look at the all-new 2022 Honda Civic Sedan around 6:00 p.m. PT, leading into the performance.

As previously announced, the all-new Civic Hatchback will follow Civic Sedan production by several months. Details about Civic Hatchback, to be manufactured by Honda in the United States for the first time in its history, will follow later this year. The Civic Hatchback will be built at the company's Indiana auto plant.

If you're not rich enough to have an automaker completely craft you a one-off from scratch, the next best thing is to take full advantage of the company's vehicle customization options. There's usually a special devision that takes care of this. At Aston Martin, it's Q. Bentley has Mulliner and Porsche offers up their Manufaktur department.

Lambroghini's Ad Personam customization program offers five key areas where customers can make the vehicle they order unique. Specialists assist customers at every step of the process, taking into consideration their demands as craftspeople create the vehicle that's ordered.

The choice of 348 unique colors.

Though not every color is available in every region of the world, there are 348 total options offered to customers. Americans tend to be the most demanding, requesting 20 percent of the custom colors that Ad Personam offers up, followed by customers in Asia Pacifica and EMEA region.

Take the car to the next level with diamond dust paint.

All that glitters isn't always gold. Sometimes it's diamonds. Ad Personam offers Lamborghinis with a new transparent paint that includes micro crystals in the form of diamond dust. This dust undergoes a unique processing technique and is applied to the bodywork of the supercar, giving it an iridescent sheen that changes color according to reflections of the light at that moment.

Add a unique work of art.

Lamborghini's talented upholstery department has seen it all. In addition to the typical orders, they're able to take special requests for unique decorations and embroidery, from the seat logo, hand-stitched rather than hot-embossed, to the initials embroidered inside the passenger compartment.

Some of the most creative options requested by buyers include creating branches and peach blossoms, portraits of the customer or their beloved pet, designs in street art style with the bull, and "splash-effect" color (like in the Aventador S by Skyler Grey), to images of the skyline of their favorite city.
