Lamborghini Series: LAMBORGHINI SESTO ELEMENTO

#Lamborghini and Hot Wheels have had a great relationship for the last decade, as Hot Wheels has produced at least one new Lamborghini casting every year since 2009 — a streak that unfortunately ends this year. However, before you begin to think Lamborghini is going the route of Ferrari, […]
