Lamborghini claims 4WD will double sales

Will a 4WD spoil the Lamborghini marque?

Lamborghini will release a 4WD after receiving financial backing from investors and the Italian government.

The car will be based on the Urus concept, which was first unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.

Manufacturing will take place in Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory. It will almost double in size — from 80,000 square metres to 150,000 square metres — and 500 additional employees will be hired in order to meet production.

The 4WD "will double Lamborghini’s current sales performance" with a projected 3000 cars expected to be manufactured each year.

All of this means spotting a Lamborghini in the wild will be easier once it goes on sale in 2018.

Demand will be ‘balanced’ across different geographical regions. Target markets include the USA, China, the Middle East, United Kingdom, Germany and Russia.

The news comes as Lamborghini launches the Aventador LP 700-4 in Australia, a car priced from $761,000.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
