Ten of the most epic Lamborghinis produced (so far)

Starting off with the oldest model, here are ten amazing models, produced by Lamborghini. Remember, if you feel we missed an iconic model, share it with our blog community and tell us about your favourite Lambo in the comment section below.

The 350GT (1964 – 1966)

An oldie but a goodie, this Lamborghini for sale was truly a beaut. With the 350 GTV prototype being unveiled in 1963, the car itself was only produced a year later, the prototype undergoing modifications to the bodywork and the name changing to the 350GT.

Producing 120 units, of which most were 12 cylinder engines producing a horsepower of 320, the open-top version (350GTS) followed in 1965.


Lamborghini’s Miura

Said to have redefined the concept of what a sports car is, the Miura flaunted long lines and a look that, till this day, turns heads. Boasting a central V12 engine, this powerful beast was the fastest production car of its time, reaching a top speed of 280 kilometres per hour.

Note that the original version of this stunning sports car was produced during 1966 and 1969. It was during this time that 475 units were produced.

This model then underwent further development, becoming the Miura S (which delivered a total of 370 horsepower) and then the Miura SV (which delivered a horsepower of 385) flaunting separate gearbox and engine lubrication systems.


The Countach LP 400

Featuring a truly iconic look, designer Marcello Gandini put beautiful lines and fascinating details down on paper to create what we know today as the Countach.

The first generation to come from this Lamborghini range was called the LP 400 which boasted a four litre, V12 engine mounted lengthwise that produced a horsepower of 375, a torque of 361 Nm and reached a top speed of 309 kilometres per hour.

During 1974 and 1978 a total of 151 units were produced.


The Diablo

Seen as the heir of the Miura and Countach, the Diablo was anything but boring. A wide sports car, it sported a futuristic look that, at least I, associate with the nineties.

Boasting a redeveloped V12 engine, the heads of Lamborghini wanted a car that could reach a maximum speed of, at least, 320 kilometres per hour. They were not disappointed. The Diablo reached a top speed of 325 kilometres per hour and went from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just 4.5 seconds.

Producing a horsepower of 492, this rear-wheel drive Lamborghini for sale flaunted computer controlled multi-point fuel injection and a displacement of 5.7 litres.

Produced during 1990 and 2001 – also including several variations like the all-wheel drive Diablo VT – almost 3 000 units were sold.



Lamborghini truly outdid itself once again with the introduction of the Murciélago, produced during 2001 through to 2010. With five models in the Murciélago camp that we simply cannot take our eyes off of, choosing one was just way too hard, so we decided to talk about each one briefly.

Sporting the traditional 12 cylinder Roadster tradition, the Murciélago Roadster had a more ‘open’ design that didn’t fall short when it came to safety and acceleration.

The Murcielago LP 640 Coupe was also a stunning beast. With emphasis placed in the interior and exterior design, this Coupe was like no other. With engineers placing focus on the gearbox, engine, electronics and exhaust, this Lamborghini for sale delivered a horsepower of 640.


Also undergoing the special touch from designers and engineers as the Coupe did, the LP640 Roadster had a sense character that will most definitely win you over. With a tad more aggression in its design, the Murciélago LP640 Roadster’s interior was specially crafted to meet the needs of the driver.

Before we get to the limited edition in the Murciélago camp, we have to mention the Murciélago LP670-4 Super Veloce. With a weight reduction of 100 kilograms, this 6.5 litre V12 monster reached a top speed of 432 kilometres per hour and went from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in only 3.2 seconds. Making use of carbon fibre materials, the LP670-4 delivered 30 more horsepower.

Lastly, the Murciélago LP 650 Roadster. With only 50 units produced, this limited Lamborghini boasted a Grigio Telesto exterior, beautifully making use of bright orange and a grey body. Delivering a horsepower of 650, this 6.5 litre V12 engine delivered a torque of 660 Nm, reached a top speed of around 330 kilometres per hour and flaunted permanent four wheel drive.


The Lamborghini Gallardo

The Lamborghini Gallardo for sale, named after famous breed of fighting bulls, was produced between 2003 and 2013 and features eight gorgeous Lambos. The most affordable Lambo during its time, these models all featured V10 hearts.

Starting off with the Gallardo LP 550-2, which made use of a two wheel drive ESP system, allowing for a not only a good stability, but also a sporty driving experience. The rear wheel drive LP 550-2 Spyder was definitely a sports car to remember. Combining that priceless open-air experience with agile handling, this beauty was made for the more hands-on driver.

Lamborghini Gallardo 2004

The LP 560-4, a four wheel drive model in the Gallardo camp, this Lamborghini for sale was treated to a front end redesign, a muscular look and a sporty shape you will find hard to forget.

Also a part of what makes the Gallardo one of the most epic cars produced by Lamborghini, the LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Technica flaunted a sharp nose with two large air intakes, four ceramic coated exhausts and a design that was inspired by the Super Trofeo championship cars.

The LP 570-4 Spyder Performante Edizone Technica reached a maximum speed of 324 kilometres per hour and went from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 3.9 seconds. Bringing out the brand’s beautifully intricate and high quality nature, the LP 560-4 Bicolre had a wider and more aggressive design, while the interior stitching and upholstery was, and probably still is, the image of class and sophistication.

A Special Series LP 550.2 Tricolore was also released within this series, featuring a V10 driveline and a look that is unforgettable.
