For this list, we’re taking a look at some of the fastest and coolest Lambos ever built.
The Gallardo is the best-selling Lamborghini of all time – with a total of 14,022 built between 2003-2013. They were so popular that even the Italian police were driving them! Sure, that's mostly because Lamborghini donated two of them to the Italian Polizia di Stato in 2004 in honor of their 152nd anniversary, but they actually were put to use.
Can you imagine being chased down the highway by one of these wicked awesome whips?! With its V10 engine, 6-speed manual transmission and the ability to break the 200 mph mark, the Gallardo is the car every pizza delivery guy wishes he had.
Introduced in 2011, the Aventador is one of the fastest cars ever built with a top speed of 230 mph, the ability to go 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds and an electronic all-wheel drive system that makes handling a dream.
Power is channeled through a 7-speed semi-automatic, and there's plenty of it as well. The 6.5-liter V12 has 690 horsepower in the corral with 508 lb-ft of torque on tap. A strong seller, and the caretaker of Lambo's first all-new V12 in nearly 50 years, it should come as no surprise that Top Gear magazine named it “Supercar of the Year” in 2011.
It was built under the stewardship of Audi after the company was put in control of Lamborghini in 1998, and the new owners continued to ensure that the vehicles being produced were still high quality speedsters that would steal the spotlight everywhere they went. And with a top speed of around 212 mph, the Murciélago clearly wasn’t an exception.
If you’re cruising down the street in a supercar designed to look like a fighter-plane, chances are it’s a Reventón. Twenty-one of these bad boys were built from 2007-2009, with each being stamped accordingly to ensure owners that what they were purchasing was truly, one of a kind. The 21st car was preserved as a museum piece.
While the car was designed to look like a jet, its name is derived from an infamous 1940s fighting bull that once killed a man in the ring. Clearly the designers had this in mind when putting it together, because the Reventón is a beast – with a top speed of 221 mph.
Who wouldn't want to hold the reins of the devil's car? The Lamborghini Diablo was one of the 1990s’ most recognizable high performance vehicles. Utilizing the mid-engine design made famous by its predecessors, the Diablo could reach speeds of up to 200 miles per hour and looked damn fine while doing it.
While the Diablo went through a number of updates during its 11 year production run, its basic design remained the same – stylish exterior, scissor doors, V12 engine and the ability to make heads turn around the world.
Built in celebration of Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, the Veneno is about as limited a car as you can get or not get…because out of the five that were built only three were ever sold; and the ones that did sell went for a staggering $4.5 million each. Based on the Aventador, this beast looks like the love child of Batman’s tumbler and a Decepticon, except it is completely street-legal.
With a top speed of 220 mph, the ability to go 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and a breaking speed of 60-0 mph in just 98 feet, the Veneno can pull up and be gone in less time than it takes for to pick your jaw up off the ground.
Why is it that sports cars get awesome names? The Huracán, or Hurricane as you may have already assumed, is one seriously sweet ride. With its 610 horsepower, this puppy can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds. First introduced in 2014, the Huracán overtook the Gallardo as Lamborghini’s most produced vehicle.
That’s not to say you’ll feel like everyone else when driving it. With a top speed of 212 mph, this high performance whip is guaranteed to blow your hair back while simultaneously making you lose control of your bladder. It’s wicked fast, paisano!
3. Sesto Elemento
With only 20 in existence, the Sesto Elemento is what you would call a limited edition car. The name, which means “Sixth Element” in English, is a reference to the large amounts of carbon fiber used in the creation of the vehicle. From the body down to the suspension, this Lamborghini is almost entirely made of the lightweight substance, meaning its weight is substantially lower than previous supercars.
This translates into the ability to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds! Naturally, the Sesto Elemento will run you a pretty penny. How pretty? Try $3 million – though an online ad reportedly asked for $4.5 million for one of these babies in 2017!
Few sports cars in the history of automotive design have achieved the same level of recognition as this one. With its sharp angles and scissor doors, the Countach appeared to be from another planet. Introduced in 1974, the vehicle immediately made an impression as one of the most bombastic wedge-shaped supercars ever to be produced.
With its enormous 12-cylinder engine, the car is able to reach speeds of up to 185 mph. What’s more, it’s a staple of ‘80s car culture, and omnipresent bedroom art, though most choose to ignore the handful of engineering shortcomings in favor of its unique, cutting edge styling.
Lamborghini broke the mold when they introduced the Miura in 1966. Regarded as one of the world’s first supercars, the Miura was a pioneer in the field of high performance automotive manufacturing. The stylish coup made waves for being the first supercar to have a two-seat layout and mid-engine design– which means that the engine rests between the rear and front axles.
This in turn gave the Miura fantastic handling and a top speed of 171 mph. However, what truly sets this car apart is its sleek, rocket-like design. Due to the fact that only 764 were ever built, if you ever happen to come across one, be sure to ask if you can take it for a test drive.
