Lamborghini produces some of the fastest cars in the world. One of the main contenders to the brand is another iconic car manufacturer from Italy, Ferrari. The rivalry between these two brands has pushed engineers to create thrilling performance machines. In this article, we will go through the various models offered by the brand, and answer questions like how fast is a Lamborghini, 0-60 mph time (0-100 km/h), its top speed, and more.

Automobili Lamborghini Models, Top Speed, 0-60mph & more

Lamborghini is the definition of Italian engineering at its best. The brand offers a range of mainstream models and a few exclusive bespoke editions. Let’s look at each of the models available in 2022, their specifications, and find out how fast a Lamborghini can go from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h).

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4

Launched in the year 2011. The first iteration of the Aventador stunted the automotive world with its aggressive design stance and engine specs. Since its inception, a lot hasn’t changed with the model. It still hosts a naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 engine, 2 seats, and an insane single-clutch gearbox setup.

What has changed, however, are the engine performance figures, drivetrain configuration, and interior cosmetics. The first Aventador model, the LP 700-4 (2011-2016), produced 690 hp at 690 Nm of torque and had a top speed of 350km/h. It’s 0-100km/h was recorded at 2.9s. There was also the roadster edition which produced similar performance figures.

Aventador S LP 740-4

The Aventador S LP 740-4 is the latest iteration in the Lamborghini series. The Aventador S packs the same naturally aspirated V12 engine but with a few tweaks to refine performance. It now produces 730 hp at the same 690 Nm of torque; it has four-wheel steering as standard for better high-speed cornering and stability. Unlike the previous Aventador, the S version has a slightly improved gearing ratio for less aggressive gearshifts. Yet the characteristics of a single clutch gearbox still exists within. The Aventador S sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds.

Aventador SV LP 750-4

The Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 (2015-2017) was considered the most powerful Lamborghini when it was launched. It had a combined weight reduction of 50 kgs with extensive use of carbon fiber components. The car produced an additional 50 hp bringing the number up to 740 hp. Its 0-100 km/h time has been reduced from 2.9 to 2.8 seconds.

Aventador SVJ

The SVJ is currently the fastest production Aventador. The Super Veloce Jota is a track-focused machine producing 759 hp at 720 Nm of torque. The SVJ accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, making it the fastest Lamborghini Aventador to be produced to date. This particular Lamborghini’s top speed is electronically limited to 349 km/h.

Following is a list of Aventador Special Editions –

  • Aventador J
  • SVJ 63 & 63 Roadster
  • Pirelli Edition
  • Miura Homage
  • 50th Anniversario Edition
  • LP 780-4 Ultimae & Ultimae Roadster

The above-mentioned Ultimae models are the last of the Aventadors to be built, and only 350 units are being produced.

Lamborghini Huracan

Crafted by the finest Italian designers with unprecedented quality and prestige, Lamborghini Huracan is the younger sibling to the Aventador. It is defined as the perfect blend of technology and design. It made its world debut in 2014 at the Geneva Auto show. The Huracan is available in six different variants.

Huracan LP 610-4

Huracan LP 610-4 is powered by a V10 engine producing 602 hp at 560 Nm of torque and has a top speed of 341 km/h, and can sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds. This particular model of the Lamborghini comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission which delivers seamless up and downshifts. It has a power-to-weight ratio of 2.55 kg per horsepower.

Huracan LP 580-2

The LP 580-2 is the more thrilling version of the Huracan. Supercar enthusiasts are drawn towards rear-wheel drive cars simply because you can slide it to your side (drift the car). The horsepower on this version is 572 hp, which is less compared to the standard model but adequate enough to sprint from 0-100 in 3.4 seconds. This also is available in a Spyder variant.

Huracan LP 640-4 Performante

In 2017 Lamborghini introduced the Huracan LP 640-4 Performante, the track-focused super-performance vehicle. The Performante sheds out weight by extensive use of forged carbon fiber and aluminum body components. The Performante & its Spyder version is powered by the same 5.2L V10 engine but is tuned to produce 631 hp at 601 Nm of torque. It launches from 0-100 km/h in a mind-boggling 2.9 seconds. The suspension has been reworked to provide the driver with some serious track experience.

Huracan EVO

Huracan EVO is the latest iteration of the Lamborghini; this particular model is available in Spyder, RWD, and RWD Spyder versions. The EVO stands for Evolution, signifying Lamborghini’s vision to move towards a well-balanced, performance-oriented, and daily-driving machine. It is powered by the same V10 engine producing 631 hp at 600 Nm of max torque. The EVO AWD goes from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and the RWD 3.3 seconds.

Huracan STO

In 2021, at the Vallelunga Circuit, Rome, Lamborghini launched the track-focused version of the Huracan, the STO, which stands for Super Trofeo Omologato. This is a drastically updated variant of the Huracan with roof snorkels for engine cooling, a taller rear wing for improved downforce, and carbon bucket in seats in their interior to deliver a full race car experience. It packs a V10 engine producing 631 hp and sprints from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.0 seconds.

Huracan Tecnica

The Huracan Tecnica was launched in 2022, adding to the line-up of Lamborghinis’. It is by far the most versatile variant of the Huracan, with design cues inspired by the previous iterations of the Lamborghini. The Tecnica sits below the STO in terms of performance line-ups, as it’s a more road-focused car. It shares the same engine with its other versions and redlines at 325 km/h at 563 Nm of torque. The Tecnica accelerates from 0-100 km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds.

Lamborghini Urus

When practicality meets performance, that’s how you define the Lamborghini Urus. More than two people at once can now experience pure Lamborghini performance, with comfortable ergonomics and the latest infotainment setups.

The Urus is available in two broad variants, Pearl Capsule and Graphite Capsule. Major competitors to the Urus are Porsche Cayenne, Aston Martin DBX, BMW X6M, and the Bentley Bentayga. The Urus was the first vehicle produced by Lamborghini since 1988 that packs a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 650 hp at 850 Nm of torque and goes from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. It is a road-focused Lamborghini with practical aspects like 616 liters of boot space, 5 seats, and 9.8 inches of ground clearance.

Lamborghini, a tribute to the mighty raging bulls

Lamborghini has redefined the world of high-performance machines. An Italian supercar manufacturer that has consistently delivered aggressively styled and refined engineering marvels. Unlike other brands that have already adapted turbocharged or hybrid models. Lamborghini has continued producing big and powerful V10 and V12 engines. However, with strict emissions regulations being implemented, the brand has been planning on new hybrid models. With the Aventador Ultimae, we bid farewell to one of the greatest engines ever produced by Lamborghini.
