What’s Your All-Time Favorite Lamborghini Model?

From the Miura all the way to their latest model, the Urus, Lamborghini has built some of the most unique and exceptional cars in history.

Their automotive heritage is up there with the likes of Porsche and Ferrari, although unlike the latter, Lamborghini decided to hurry up and add a 190 mph (305 km/h) SUV to their supercar line-up, rather than wait another few years.

Before that decision was made, the Italian automaker was almost entirely focused on two-door models like the Countach, Diablo, Murcielago, Gallardo, Aventador or the Huracan, plus quite a few other special edition models.

Throughout history, while their cars got heavier and more expensive, they also got more powerful. The Miura was good for 350 HP back in 1966, while in 1990, the Diablo broke through with nearly 500 HP and a price tag of over $200,000.

Now, in the absence of a true hypercar, it’s the 2016 limited edition Centenario that offers the most power, but if you’re measuring by success, the Gallardo remains the automaker’s best seller.

    Miura. Not even a contest. Countach and Gallardo solid second. Rambo Lambo third. Aventador(and all its derivatives) fourth. Reventon fifth.

    • nastinupe

      I put the 25th Anniversary edition of the Countach as #1.

  • LWOAP

    I would say the Diablo, then the Gallardo and Huracan (pretty much tied for second), Miura, Murcielago, followed by the Countach, and then the Aventador. (This includes all their various versions like the SuperVeloce, Superlegerra, Squadra Corse, Valentino Balboni, Performante, VTT Roadster, SV Jota etc….)

    Also, the new ZR1 Convertible just sold at Barrett Jackson for 925k. Don’t worry, it’s for charity.

    • Bash

      +1, it’s gonna be the Diablo for me too.

    1. Espada (All day, every day.)
    2. Huracán (I wish, it had an Active Spoiler, though.)
    3. Diáblo (I loved the crazy spoiler, on it. Scissor-doors; not so much.)
    4. LM002/Rambo Lambo (It could have been Third, but I loved the Diáblo more.)
    5. Jalpa (Because, Rocky drove one.)

    and…

    6. Silhouette (Why? Because, out of pity; due to it, being unreliable.)

      OTOH, the new Huracán Performante with corner-specific active aerodynamics
      and forged composite interior is impressive

  • Nordschleife

    The Gallardo is the first Lamborghini that I actually wanted and cared about so it’s my favorite.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      The Gallardo is special to me in that way, but with just how classy and gorgeous the Miura is I have to put it at the top.

    • Especially the early Gallardo, I love the Superleggera.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Miura will remain one of the best interpretations of Lamborghini’s style. Countach is carved in history, especially some versions. Gallardo and Diablo were ok. Since they were taken over by Audi i can’t manage to like them. The design has changed. And that SUV….i still think it’s something for pimps.

    • I don’t think Lamborghini has “style” per say. Look at evolution from 350 GT to Aventador. It’s a product of their time, I think only Audi that established the template for Lamborghini design from Murcielago.

      • Wandering_Spirit

        Lamborghinis had a very clear design till they were all Italian. Things changed into the Transformer thing once they became part of Audi. Dare saying more boring too, although with top of class performances.

        • Idk really, 350 GT is classic atypical Italian 60s GT, Miura is definitely the most original design but to be frank. It was Gandini and Bertone views, while Ferruccio see Miura as marketing exercise.

          The Countach I think set the template for Lamborghini design but literally every designer in 70s do that design. So hardly an original Lambo.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            I don’t see many designs like the Countach for its time. But i agree it set the tone for most of what came after, before it ended up in Audi’s hands. That’s when things, in my opinion, went too far in terms of design.

          • Maybe it’s just in my opinion, But Countach is production version of Alfa Romeo Carabo. Concept car by Gandini. And before that the wedge supercar is sort of common in Italy.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            Oh i see where you’re coming from. Yes, you’re right; the Countach is a derivative of the Carabo. But the wedge concept in Italy gave birth to a number of different cars, each with its own personality. If we don’t include the supercars, a number of the Italian cars used the wedge concept in that era. From the Stratos (and many other Lancias) to the Giulietta 116: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfa_Romeo_Giulietta_(116) and the Alfa 75. All of them for Italians were examples of wedge design. But the Countach defines an age for the brand. That and the Miura are an unequalled.

  • karmat
    • The latter Countach is still pretty, but the original LP400 is much sleeker and pure.

  • Hmmm it’s kinda hard really, but somehow I always love Islero, you see I like cars not just how they perform or looks, but also their history.

    Islero is a perfect GT, It is what Ferruccio wanted, and I think to choose Islero as my Favorite. Is like paying tribute to him.

    I wonder how he would see current Lamborghini though.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      He’d have a stroke!

  • Mynameis Taylor

    Miura and Espada

  • SamuraiJack

    I’m going to be a bit different and say the Urraco. Back in the 90s my dad and I saw one at the back of a dodgy car dealership, looking very abused and needing a crapload of tlc. I had never heard of a “Urraco” before but I fell in love with it.
    One day when I’m rich I’ll daily drive one.

  • Vassilis

    I’m madly in love with the bonkers Countach LP500 S. Other than that I love the Diablo GT, the Murcielago SV, the first Aventador and the Gallardo Balboni.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Was the Balboni the RWD one? Yes, I could Google but…

      • Vassilis

        hehe yep!

      • LWOAP

        Yeah, it was the RWD version. There were other RWD Gallardos too but the Balboni was just a little more special.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Miura. The Countach was always a mess, stylistically. I loved the Diablo, too.

    • The early LP400 is fine, but then the next one though.

    The Huracan Performante

    • Belthronding Tinuviel

      Well,it is not my no 1 but huracan performante is goddamn sexy beast,can’t think a lambo list without it.

    • I think in terms of ingenuity Performante is stand out among the family. With less power but smarter design Performante manage to beat other cars of its class.

    -diablo
    Because it is from my childhood and i like everything from my childhood. never forget it when i saw it first time in a car magazine.also best car name ever by far.

    -aventador/huracan performante
    Aventador is crazy wild and seduce me.
    Huracan performante looks and goes so pure, it does not need any toy,very simple and sexy.

  • Nick099

    Drove a Countach back in the day… couldn’t fit comfortably. Pedal placement very tight. Small foot Wells. Roofline very low. Rear visibility nonexistent. Fit and finish..ok. Engine was glorious…very mechanical. Not something to drive more than 30 minutes. The Diablo…much better but like the Countach very service intensive. For me, any Lamborghini under Audi ownership…and resources. The Gallardo catches my eye.

    • Yep for anyone that has been riding pre Audi Lamborghini would find that they are sore to drive. But it is amazing how Audi can turn Diablo into much more mature and easy to drive car. (I’ve been in SV made during Indonesian ownersip and VT after Audi takeover. like different car already)
