The Top 19 Best Lamborghinis Of All Time
Few car manufacturers have such a legacy as Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. The Italian automobile company was founded 59 years ago and continues to be a mainstay in the world of sports cars. Ever since the first Lamborghini 350 GT rolled off the production line, the brand has been synonymous with luxury automobiles that not only look incredible but are super fast. The best Lamborghinis in the company’s history are all highlighted in this article below.
Over the years there has been a variety of different models released, from the classic wedge-shaped Lamborghini Countach to the stunning V12-powered Aventador. One thing all these cars have in common is the impact they have had on not only the automobile world but car lovers in general.
To celebrate this classic automobile, here are 19 of the best Lamborghinis ever produced for you to ogle over.
The Top 19 Best Lamborghinis Of All Time
1. Aventador SVJ
The first Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) was unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. A slick-looking Lambo with a 6.5-liter L539 V12 engine, the SVJ is made from carbon fiber and includes a titanium exhaust system with an output of 759 hp at 8,500 rpm and 531 lb-ft of torque at 6,750 rpm.
The Aventador SVJ is also very quick, with the ability to hit 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and 0-124 mph in 8.6 seconds. If that isn’t enough, the SVJ also has a top speed of 219 mph, which is ridiculous. There have been several different versions of the SVJ released over the years and it remains one of the company’s big sellers amongst those with deep pockets. It is one of the best Lamborghinis on the market.
2. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
Only 20 of these limited edition Lamborghini Sesto Elementos were produced between 2010-2012. The name is a reference to the atomic number of carbon, meaning the carbon fiber used in the construction of cars. Each vehicle costs $2.92 million to manufacturer and comes with a 6-speed “e-gear” automated manual transmission and an all-wheel-drive system. This is another really fast Lamborghini that can go from 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds and 0-124 mph in 8.0 seconds. The top speed is also around 221 mph, which is insane.
3. Lamborghini Miura
One of the first and best Lamborghinis ever created, the Miura was produced between 1966 and 1973. It was the first supercar with a rear mid-engined two-seat layout and became a flagship of the company during its early years. Under the hood is a V12 four-stroke with the top-of-the-line model able to reach almost 174 mph. It still remains a fan favorite.
4. Lamborghini Gallardo
Along with having a super cool name, the Lamborghini Gallardo was one of the company’s best-selling cars during its production run. From 2003 to 2013 over 14,000 Gallardos were manufactured, with over 20 different models and variations released. The two-door coupe is a modern marvel that retains the classic Lamborghini look and was even used as a police car in Italy, Panama, and London.
5. Lamborghini Countach
This is possibly the best Lamborghini ever made. The Lamborghini Countach celebrated its 50th-anniversary last year. Developed by Italian design house Bertone, the Countach is one of the most well-known Lamborghinis ever created and helped popularize the wedge-shaped design that many Lambos possess. Although the last car rolled off the production line in 1990, the company is releasing a special edition Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 this year, with just 112 unis being made available.
6. Lamborghini Murciélago
The successor to the Lamborghini Diablo (see below), the Murciélago is a V12 supercar designed by the great Peruvian-born Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini’s head of design from 1998 to 2005. He created a beast of a car that had many variations throughout its short life span, with even a number of track-specific models made to test the speed limits of the Murciélago.
7. Lamborghini Diablo
This high-performance Lamborghini is a personal favorite. They were in production for 11 years, with 2,884 cars created during that period. The Diablo was the first Lambo with a top speed of over 200 mph. Not only was it fast, but it came with a bunch of great features inside, including fully adjustable seats, electric windows, and power steering. The Diablo is also a fantastic-looking vehicle that means devil in Spanish.
8. Lamborghini 350 GT
The Lamborghini 350 GT was the first Lamborghini ever produced. The two-door coupe was powered by a 3.5-liter V12 engine and debuted at the March 1964 Geneva Motor Show. The 350 GT had a five-speed ZF manual transmission, four-wheel independent suspension, Girling disc brakes, and originally came equipped with Pirelli Cinturato HS 205-section tires. These days they fetch over $500,000 at auction.
9. Lamborghini Huracan Evo
The Lamborghini Huracan Evo took over from the Gallardo in 2014 and is still in production today. Taking its name from the Spanish word for hurricane and inspired by bullfighting, the Huracan has a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine with a top speed of 212 mph. As well as being a high-performance car, the Huracan also has several luxury features, including heated sports seats, the Lamborghini Infotainment System, and leather upholstery.
10. Lamborghini Huracan STO
This is a track-focused Lamborghini Huracan that is quite different from other models. The STO has a taller rear wing and the entire hood opens to reveal a compartment where race equipment can be stored. There are three different modes available when cruising around in the STO; the standard STO for road driving, the TROFEO for racing laps on a dry circuit, and the PIOGGIA for racing in the wet.
11. Lamborghini Jarama
This classic 70s Lamborghini was built to live up to US manufacturing standards. A total of 328 Jamaras were produced over six years, with each powered by a 3.9-liter Lamborghini V12 engine. The grand tourer was introduced at the 1970 at the Geneva Motor Show and remains a fine piece of automotive construction.
12. Lamborghini Estoque
This one-off custom car developed by Lamborghini is unlike the usual two-door coupe and is a four-door sedan. The Lamborghini Estoque was unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and featured a 5.2-liter V10 engine under the hood. The Estoque was meant to retail for a cool $230,000 but plans to mass-produce the vehicle were canceled in 2009.
13. Lamborghini Reventón
Only 21 Lamborghini Reventóns were built, with 20 available to the public and one going straight into the Lamborghini museum. The engine was the same seen in the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640–a V12 upgrade to churn out 641 hp at 8,000 rpm and 487 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. The Reventóns can also go from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of 211 mph. There were also 15 Roadster versions created that each sold for a whopping $2,100,000 million.
14. Lamborghini Jalpa
The first Lamborghini to use a V8 engine, the Jalpa was designed by the Italian company as a more affordable Lambo. It was a much easier to drive sportscar that still retained the classic look of Lamborghini without the hefty price tag. It could reach 0-62 mph in 6.0 seconds, 0-100 mph in 19.1 seconds and had a top speed of 155 mph. This was comparable to the standard Ferrar 328 at that time. Only 410 units were built before production was halted due to faltering sales.
15. Lamborghini Veneno
Looking like something Bruce Wayne would drive, the Lamborghini Veneno was limited to just 14 units (five coupes and nine roadsters). It was based on the design of the Aventador and was created to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. It had the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 engine, a large carbon fiber rear wing, Pirelli P-Zero tires, and a 7-speed ISR automated manual transmission. This limited edition Lamborghini originally sold for $4 million.
16. Lamborghini Espada
Manufactured between 1968 and 1978, the Lamborghini Espada is a four-seat Roadster. Espada means sword in Spanish, with three different series of the sportscar made over its decade-long run. There was the S1 (1968–1970), the S2 (1970–1972), and the S3 (1972–1978), with each model undergoing numerous changes and upgrades.
17. Lamborghini LM002
In the mid-80s the Italian car manufacturer decided to get into the SUV game and came up with the Lamborghini LM002. This square-shaped off-road truck, also known as the ‘Rambo Lambo,’ has the same V12 engine as a Lamborghini Countach mounted in the front. This odd 4×4 came with a stack of luxury extras, including full leather trim, tinted power windows, air conditioning, and a stereo mounted in a roof console. It also has customer Pirelli Scorpion tires.
18. Lamborghini Urus
The Lamborghini Urus is the modern day version of ‘Rambo Lambo’ and continues to be a big seller for the company. The Urus is a day driver aimed at the everyday person who likes a bit of luxury. It’s a sleek and stylish SUV with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and the ability to hit 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 190 mph, which is decent for this type of vehicle.
19. Lamborghini Urraco
One of the earlier models, the Lamborghini Urraco is a 2+2 coupe designed by the great Marcello Gandini. The intention of the Urraco was for it to be a more affordable option for sportscars fans, similar to the Ferrari Dino and Maserati Merak. Three versions were produced during its eight years, the P200, P250, and P300, with each equipped with a V8 engine.
