20 Jun 2022 | Abstracted from Popular Science

"It turns out that when driven gently, like you would on ice, the LMV is perfectly docile and responsive. The main challenge is an artifact of driving in a simulator with a 2D-screen standing in for reality.

"The LMV's top speed is 25 kph...never venture above 12 kph. A crash would be harmlessly virtual, but the time needed to reset the simulator would mean an instant end to my moon-driving fantasy. The Apollo LRV topped out at 13 kph..."

19 Jun 2022 | Abstracted from The Drive

"...future electrified cars will continue Lamborghini's tradition of radical styling: "They will always look like spaceships, always be inspiring, always cars that with whatever technology they have will have the sound and the emotion to touch you..."
