Lamborghini is no doubt one of the best sports car manufacturers. It has been a perfect rival to Ferrari. The iconic brand has manufactured various models ranging from front-engined Gran Turismo models to mid-engined supercars. The way its cars handle and the way their engines roar is what makes them a hit. Many kids had posters of these classic Lamborghini models hanging on their walls. They were our childhood dreams.
The designs of these cars are so flawless that choosing the 10 best models is a difficult thing to do. Still, we have chosen the ten best cars from Lamborghini’s car lineup. Some have been revolutionary for their times or in some cases they have been pretty wild-looking. Anyway, let’s take a look at the ten best cars that Lamborghini has ever manufactured:-
10. Lamborghini 350 GT
What could be better to start the list than the classic Lamborghini that started it all? This car was Ferrucio Lamborghini’s answer to Enzo Ferrari that he can also build sports cars. The 350 GT got announced at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show and it instantly grabbed everyone’s attention. It gets a 3.5-litre V12 engine that generates 270 BHP. Sadly, only 120 were built, which makes this model a rare classic. Its current Value goes above and beyond $1 Million.
9. Lamborghini Jalpa
This was the time when Lamborghini entered the ‘entry-level car’ zone. The Jalpa wasn’t the first one though. It was the evolution of the Lamborghini Silhouette which came earlier. The Jalpa gets a 3.5-litre V8 engine, churning out 255 bhp. Its top speed is rated at 155 miles per hour. Only 419 such examples were built.
8. Diablo SV (SuperVeloce)
You can’t make a list of the best Classic Lamborghini cars and not include Diablo. It replaced the iconic Countach. In its SV form, its 5.7-litre V12 engine generates 510 HP and 580 Nm of torque. The car weighs 1,576 kg with a 41:59 weight distribution. It was also the first Lamborghini to reach 200 miles per hour. It was the flagship car of the game ‘Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit’. Later entries also used the car.
7. Countach LP500 QV (QuattroValvole)
The Wedge design and scissor doors of the Countach are enough to make anyone fall in love. This car was on everyone’s bedroom posters. Thanks to the matching performance, it stormed the market. This special edition was designed by none other than Horacio Pagani. Its 5.2 litre V12 generates 449 HP.
6. Lamborghini LM002
Once upon a time, Lamborghini and SUV didn’t seem synonymous. Now with the Urus, they do seem so. But very few people know that they tried the same (with a better economy) with the LM002, or the ‘Rambo Lambo’ as the fans call it. With the V12 sourced from the Countach, it could hit 60 miles per hour in just 7.7 seconds. Another option was a 7.2-litre V12 engine that made a whopping 612 HP and could hit 60 mph in 6.9 seconds flat !! This Classic Lamborghini SUV was surely feature-packed and ahead of its times.
5. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Evolving from the design of the Diablo, the Murcielago has much better looks and a better driving experience. After Audi took over, it was the first V12 Lamborghini. Its 6.5-litre V12 engine is able to generate 631 bhp. It comes with a six-speed manual as standard. It was the last Lamborghini to come with a V12 engine and a manual gearbox as standard.
4. Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera
This humble-looking car is also the most successful Lamborghini ever. In its 10-year manufacturing run, around 200,000 models were built. This specific model gets a 5.2-litre V10 engine that makes 562 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. It gets a six-speed manual transmission. The LP570-4 can reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and its top speed is rated at 202 mph.
3. Lamborghini Espada
The Espada was revealed five years after the 350 GT. It was a full four-seat Lamborghini with a 4.0-litre V12 engine powering it. The Series I Espada made 325 bhp whereas the Series II generated 350 bhp. In the decade of its manufacturing, more than 1200 cars were built. It was also the last front-engine model before the Urus came. Certainly a Classic Lamborghini.
2. Lamborghini Urraco
It was the very first entry-level Car from the company. It was a sleek two-door, four-seat, mid-engine masterpiece. Its name translates as ‘Young Bull’. It was one indeed. It gets 2.0 litre, 2.5 litre and 3.0-litre V8 engine options. The last ever model accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
1. Lamborghini Miura
This is inarguably the most iconic Lamborghini ever made. While people might argue about the positioning of other cars on the list, there’s no denying that Miura deserves the top spot. It is kind of like a father to all the modern-day supercars. With looks designed by Marcello Gandini and a 4.0-litre mid-mounted V12 engine to match them, it is a beast. At its time, it was also the fastest production vehicle.
