THE TOP 50 FASTEST LAMBORGHINIS OF ALL TIME
The number one question we get here at LamboCARS, is which is the fastest Lamborghini in the world? As always, we went deep into our data to find our which of Lamborghini's raging bulls win top spot as the fastest. On this page we focused Lamborghini by top speed, but don't fret because we also looked at the fastest accelerating Lamborghinis over here.
These days, most Lamborghinis are capable of going much faster than their advertised top speed. Lamborghini electronically limits their cars because the tire technology is not good enough to safely handle the speeds that the chassis and engine are able to get to. With that said, we did see in the data that there are some real differences in top speed so this list is useful. As always, we focused this list on the fastest "official" Lamborghini cars, so it includes concepts, production cars, and limited edition factory special models. We stayed away from the fastest tuned Lamborghinis because that a whole other crazy world.
The fastest Lamborghini ever? Well, lets start by saying that this one comes from the "wishful thinking" category. The Lamborghini Countach 7000 Prototype was presented in late 1986. The Countach 7000 was presented was very different looking Countach and used a four-valve engine bored out to 7.1 Liters with twin-turbo chargers, pumping out a whopping 600 bhp (compared to 455 bhp produced by the ‘normal’ 5 Liter QV engine). The official statements suggest that it was capable of a top speed of 240 mph, but we are almost certain it had no hope of hitting that mark.
So that brings us to the official and most likely for real fastest Lamborghini in the world, which is the epic and super special Sesto Elemento. It manages a 221 mph top speed. The Sesto Elemento was a masterpiece of extreme lightweight engineering that showed that Lamborghini could do some amazing things with the carbon-fiber technology. The 2,202 lb carbon fiber car was a revelation. V10 power unit and the permanent all-wheel drive in a body so light it had an insane power-to-weight.
The fastest Lamborghinis after that are the Lamborghini Veneno and Veneno Roadster, both capable of a claimed top speed of 220 mph. With 750 hp @ 8,400 rpm and a mighty 509 ft lbs @ 5,500 rpm, the Veneno twins are capable of a sprint to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds in addition to the impressive top speed number. After that we have eighteen Lamborghini supercars that each hit 217 mph top speeds. All of these models are based on the Aventador engine and chassis so while each would in fact hit a higher speed if freed from an electronic nanny, we would expect them to all be within a whisker of each other anyway.
