Concept Honda Civic Type R
Lamborghini Alar is a mid-engined sports car produced by Lamborghini LatinoAmerica. A unit is rumoured to cost $750,000 each. The Alar was heavily based on the diablo especially in the areas of chassis and engine. Other components are made locally by the company. It has yet to be produced with rumors suggesting first production will be in March 2008.
The engine of the Alar is a heavily modified Lamborghini Diablo engine, it is a 7.7L V12 able to produce 770 Horsepower and can redline at about 7500 RPM. It’s body weighs relatively the same as a Diablo at 1200 kg. Initial Reports suggest the Alar could top 223 MPH (358.9 km/h) and could reach 0-60 MPH (100 km/h) in 3.5 to 4 Seconds, but subsequent official brochures has outlined its specifications. The estimated top speed of the Alar is 254.2 MPH (410 km/h) and 0-60 MPH (100 km/h) is achievable in 3.6 Seconds.
Although it shares the same platform and engine as the Lamborghini Diablo its outer styling is completely different. Its styling is reminiscent of the Lamborghini Coatl, which is another car produced by Lamborghini LatinoAmerica and designed by Joan Ferci. Like the Alar the Coatl is also based on the earlier Diablo.
We’ll admit right off the bat that we can’t tell you much about this car, called the Lamborghini Alar 777. Apparently an Argentinian by the name of Joan Ferci has somehow acquired exclusive rights to build custom Lamborghinis that retain the Italian marque’s historic name and feature an official badge of the raging bull on the front end. He’s created a pair of models in the past called the Coatl and the Eros GT-1, both based off of the Diablo. The Alar 777 will be the third model produced off of the Diablo platform and debut on March 30th in Buenos Aires. The car will produce over 700 horsepower from the Diablo’s V12 motor and reached a claimed top speed of 223 mph. All we have at the moment is this computer rendering of the Lamborghini Alar 77 courtesy of Argentina Auto Blog, which has us wondering how many times Ferruccio Lamborghini will roll in his grave when this thing officially debuts.
Looking like the bastard child of a Pontiac Banshee cross-bred with leftover elements from H.R. Giger’s original Alien designs, the Alar is, by all appearances, a waking nightmare on four wheels.The hammerhead shark-like nose is particularly weird-looking. Ironically, there are people who go out of their way to build kit cars that look like real Diablos. Here you have a case where perfectly good Diablos will be sacrificed in order to make them look like wacky kit cars. The mind reels.
