This week the Friday Five is all about Lamborghini, one of the most outlandish car companies on the planet. You can always be sure a new Lamborghini will be something to excite car fans across the globe and only a few are lucky enough to own one! They do, however, demand incredibly high price tags and motor insurance will certain not come cheap!
Here’s our rundown of the five greatest Lamborghini’s:
5. Lamborghini Diablo
The Lamborghini Diablo comes in at number 5. The Diablo is one of the most iconic Lambo’s ever built and still today holds a great presence, particularly when you see one on the road! They, in typical Lamborghini style, represent a rather extravagant, outlandish way to go motoring. Under the bonnet there can be found a tasty V12 that produces anything from 492bhp to 595bhp, depending on the specification. The Diablo is still to date one of the biggest head-turners on the roads, if you are lucky enough to even see one since they are very rare!
4. Lamborghini Gallardo
The Gallardo is in at number 4 due to its beauty and performance. It’s also the most-produced model to date with over 10,000 built in its first seven years of production, and this has also resulted in it being the most popular Lambo too. The Gallardo is also one of the best sounding cars on the road thanks to its V10 engine.
3. Lamborghini Aventador
The Aventador sits in 3rd thanks to the fact that it has rediscovered the Lamborghini ethos that has, in some people’s minds, waned in recent years. Critics have suggested that Lamborghini had softened up somewhat and calmed their eccentricity since the involvement of Audi. However, as you can see from the image, that is well and truly back for the Aventador.
2. Lamborghini Countach
The Countach is our 2nd favourite Lamborghini due to the simple fact that it is a pretty awesome looking machine and one of the biggest motoring icons ever. Produced from 1974-1990, it was the ultimate car poster for youngsters around the world. It looks like a true racing car for the road. Furthermore, it pioneered the wedge-shaped, angular look that can be seen in many other cars since.
1. Lamborghini Miura
At number 1 there could only be one Lamborghini – the Miura. It’s believed to have started the supercar trend thanks to its two-seat, mid-engined layout. It was, when produced, the fastest car in the world with a top speed of 171mph and a 0-60 time of 6.7 seconds. Which is still quick by today’s standards! The Miura was also absolutely stunning, as the image above demonstrates.
