Lamborghini Alar is a mid-engined sports car produced by Lamborghini LatinoAmerica. A unit is rumoured to cost $750,000 each.[1]. 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 [2], but has not yet come to production due to no customer orders.

Performance

The Lamborghini Alar Official Brochure

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.[3]

Styling

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.
