A Tour of the 10 Most Remarkable Lamborghinis Ever Built

The Italian automaker Lamborghini has shaped the world of supercars through its wild, flamboyant cars. From historic icons to bleeding-edge, top-of-the-line models, Lamborghini specializes in stirring emotions.

Ferruccio Lamborghini started his eponymous company as a tractor maker, but he quickly developed a passion for sports cars. He began to build his own, challenging Ferrari to a head-to-head match. For more information about Lamborghinis visit https://www.lambocars.com/coolest-lamborghini/.

1. Diablo

The Countach’s successor, the Lamborghini Diablo, was a beast on the road. It boasted sharp lines, scissor doors and a powerful engine that allowed it to reach speeds over 200 MPH.

When the car was designed, speed was top of mind. The design was penned by Marcello Gandini and was originally a concept called the Kanto.

After Lamborghini changed hands to Chrysler, the new management wanted bigger power on a rear-wheel drive vehicle without electronic nannies.

2. Murcielago

The Murcielago is a brutish, muscular supercar that debuted in 2001. It was the first Lamborghini under Audi leadership, with its exterior designed by then-Audi designer Luc Donckerwolcke (no Marcello Gandini involved here).

Its most notable feature is the large fixed rear wing that helps increase downforce at high speeds. Under the hood is an impressive 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V12 that sings at 7,500 rpm.

3. Countach

The Countach is a supercar legend, and it’s a rare treat to even see one on the road. This ’80s icon was styled by the legendary Marcello Gandini for Bertone and showed the world that Lamborghini cared just as much about design as it did boundary-pushing performance.

While the Countach underwent nips and tucks throughout its 16-year run, it never lost sight of its unique wedge shape.

4. Miura

Few cars shifted the automotive landscape like Miura did when it debuted in 1966. Ferruccio’s idea of a luxury GT car with a V12 mounted sideways was ahead of its time.

Its innovative transverse engine and gearbox were formed into one casting, taking a cue from the Morris Mini. This allowed shared lubrication for easier maintenance.

The sexy body was designed by Bertone’s then-25-year-old designer, Marcello Gandini. It featured a svelte shark nose and sleek roofline.

5. Gallardo

Lamborghini made a lot of special versions of the Gallardo over its lifespan. However, some were better than others.

The Gallardo ushered in a new era for the brand, combining style and power into a more practical package. While it lost the scissor doors of its ancestors, it retained many classic Lamborghini traits. Limited production numbers also helped create an aura of rarity.

6. Reventon

You might not remember the Reventon — it was first introduced in 2007 — but its ultra-short run and iconic design mean that it’s nearing collector car status. Its knife-edged styling influenced the Aventador, and features like its slick scissor doors bolster the rare supercar’s mystique.

The Reventon is a rebodied Murcielago LP640 with a 6.5-liter V-12 that pumps out 641 horsepower. With only 20 coupes ever made, it’s a true automotive superlative.

7. Aventador

The Aventador expresses the unmistakable Lamborghini DNA with extreme power and dynamism. The air-vented front and rear tires optimize steering, traction and braking to tackle tricky roads.

The 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine produces 759 horsepower for the ultimate supercar experience. You can personalize your driving experience with four modes including Strada, Sport, Corsa and Ego. Check out the detailed specs for this amazing machine below.

8. Huracan

The Huracan first appeared in 2014 and rocked the supercar world with its roaring V10. It delivers heart palpitations and awe-inspiring performance, sprinting from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds and reaching a jaw-dropping top speed.

Last year, Lamborghini added the hardcore Huracan STO and tame Tecnica variants to the lineup. All feature rear steering and a side-to-side torque-vectoring system. Infotainment features include an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay capability and Amazon Alexa integration.

9. Urus

After much delay, Lamborghini finally entered the sport-utility market with Urus in December 2017. The SUV uses a V8 engine from Audi and shares many of its components with models like the Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne.

The Urus’s braking system uses carbon ceramic discs for maximum performance and durability. It can stop the SUV from 100 mph in 33.7 meters.

10. Revuelto

Revuelto is a bit of a greatest hits compilation, with vertically-opening scissor doors and styling cues borrowed from limited-run cars like the Sian. But there’s plenty that is uniquely Lamborghini: the recessed roof performs both aesthetic and aerodynamic functions, including channeling air to the rear wing.

It can accelerate from zero to 62 in 2.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 221 mph. Not bad for a car that weighs 2,500 pounds.
