Plus, the three-doors on the Veloster give it a unique look, making it a very exciting, stand-out car
After its debut on the SEMA Show floor, the PM Lifestyle Veloster will go on a three-year show tour with UTI, making appearances at over 120 autocross, supercross and school demonstration events.

UTI gives its students hands-on training, helping to jump start their careers in the automotive and technical industries.
With an anticipated performance of 163-horsepower, PM Lifestyle’s custom Veloster will showcase many special modifications, making it a guaranteed highlight at this year’s SEMA Show. The modifications made by PM Lifestyle and UTI to the all-new Veloster will highlight vehicle modifications that can be achieved in real-world garages.
2012 LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO LP 550 2 SPYDER
Lamborghini revealed the new convertible Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder 2012 powered by a V10. This car brings together that stunning level of open-air driving fun that can come only from a super sports car with a folding roof and an unbelievably agile and spontaneous handling.
The most important technical characteristics of the Lamborghini LP 550-2 Spyder are already recognizable from the model designation LP stands for Longitudinale/Posteriore, for the mid-engine built longitudinally in front of the rear axle. 550 refers to the power output in hp, and the 2 stands for the drive to the rear wheels. At Lamborghini, the word spyder means the ultimate synthesis of a fascinating, powerfully expressive super sports car design, the ultimate open-air thrill and sheer pleasure for all the senses. A driving experience of the highest precision
Thanks to the supremely powerful V10 engine, controlled oversteer is not a problem, although always and only to the extent prescribed by the driver. Its easy-to-control road manners and the ESP assistant system developed for these vehicles make the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder an outstandingly safe sports car to drive.
The vehicle show out its goods with a rear axle with the 45-percent locking differential, and the adoption of the e-gear transmission. All completed with a fine adaptation of the ESP stability control system. While the standard program puts a priority on stability, the CORSA program allows larger drift angles and delivers a highly intensive appreciation of the full dynamics of the LP 550-2. All the excellent characteristics of the Gallardo chassis are fully retained its pleasing bodyroll comfort, as well as its excellent directional stability at high speed.
