Don’t know about you but I am having a hard time believing the man who’s name appears on the world’s fastest cars started out building tractors. But it’s true!
Moreover, Ferruccio Lamborghini was building tractors, radiators, air conditioning machines back in the day when he purchased a few Ferrari cars but those cars failed to impress him a lot.
So, in the year 1963 he decided to launch is very own brand. From that moment on, Lamborghini cars managed to “scare” Ferrari but, unfortunately, after releasing a few models, the businessman sold the brand in the 1970’s. Back in 1997 the brand was purchased by the Volkswagen group and placed it under Audi.
In the last 50 years Lamborghini created some of the fastest and most beautiful cars in the world and below we’re going to show you the top 10 most beautiful and also fastest Lamborghini cars ever created.
Which is your favorite Lamborghini car ? Tell us at the end of the article, in the comments section.
10. Lamborghini 350GT (1964–1966)
The first Lamborghini car series was successfully launched at the Geneva Auto Show in 1964 at a price of $120,000 in today’s money.
9. Lamborghini Miura (1966–1973)
The Lamborghini Miura model, created by Bertone, remains one of the most beautiful sports cars ever created. Some of the famous people who bought this model are Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin or Miles Davis.
8. Lamborghini Countach (1974–1990)
The shape of the Countach model, which defined modern sports cars at that time, still inspires us nowadays. Clever collectors bought them before their prices boosted.
7. Lamborghini Diablo (1990–2001)
Lamborghini Diablo, one of the most appreciated Lamborghini cars, was the first convertible car from the company capable of reaching speeds of more than 198 miles per hour. Produced in a difficult time for the company, the development of the Diablo model costed a fortune.
6. Lamborghini Murcielago (2001–2010)
The first Lamborghini model created under Audi was designed by Luc Donckerwolke and marked the debut of the modern era. All cars that followed the Murcielago model followed the same design lines.
5. Lamborghini Gallardo (2003–2013)
Gallardo was the most accessible model of the brand and it was a huge hit, a model that brought in long term profits. Equipped with the V10 engine, Gallardo was named after a race of Spanish fighting bulls, just like other models.
4. Lamborghini Reventon (2008)
This is one of the most expensive Lamborghini cars ever build. Reventon proved that despite Gallardo being a success, the brand continues to invest in extreme cars. This model was only built in 21 units, especially for collectors.
3. Aventador (2011– present day)
Inspired by the Reventon, Aventador marks the fighter jet influence on the Lamborghini creative teams. The idea is completed by a V12 engine. Nearly 6 years after the release, this model still makes us say “waw” when we see it on the streets.
2. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (2011)
1. Lamborghini Huracan (2014– present day)
The most recent Lamborghini car is a real success even if the price for the basic model starts from $240,000. It comes with many technical and mechanical improvements and we don’t think that it will be the last Lamborghini car to make us turn our eyes on the road.
