Today, we look at the top 5 fastest cars from Lamborghini.
5. Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 – 212 mph
Even though it was quickly overshadowed by other Murciélago variants, the LP640 can put up a fight on the racing grounds. The 6-speed Murciélago LP640 owes its design to its predecessor, the Murciélago. However, it has several improvements including revised front and rear fascias, modified suspensions and a more spacious interior headroom. The Murciélago LP640 has a big 6.5L V12 engine that can generate up to 632hp, enough to push the car to 212mph. However, there are rumours that it can be forced to do 219mph but this remains unconfirmed. When it comes to acceleration, the LP640 can accelerate from 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds.
4. Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce – 212 mph
The LP670-4 SuperVeloce is just a variation of the famous Murciélago. Its body is made from high-grade carbon fiber crafted in a great aerodynamic design. It has great handling and traction making it among the easiest Lambos to drive. This beast has a 6.5L V12 engine that can produce 660hp to rally the car to a top speed of 212mph. The 6-speed transmission LP670-4 SuperVeloce can accelerate from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds, very impressive!
3. Lamborghini Diablo GT-R – 217 mph
The Diablo GT-R is a variant of the Diablo that saw only 30 units produced for racing only in Germany. It sports a sleek aerodynamic design to reduce air resistance while doing what it does best, racing. Although there are no official track time results, the 5-speed Diablo GT-R drove like a bat out of hell. It is powered by a big 5.9L V12 engine that can produce up to 600hp to push this racing monster to a top speed of 217mph. The acceleration is out of this world as it can drive from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds. The Diablo GT-R made headlines after winning the 2003 and 2004 A.N.C. Championship.
2. Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – 217mph
The Aventador is another supercar from Lamborghini that was designed in Italy to represent a whole new level of comfort and performance. It is meant to be a speed monster by design and engine performance. The Aventador boasts of a 6.5L V12 engine that can produce 691hp. It has a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission. This car can reach a top speed of 217mph and its acceleration is also impressive, 0-60 in just 2.7 seconds.
1. Lamborghini Veneno – 220mph
The Lamborghini Veneno is not only the fastest Lamborghini car but also the most expensive car in production with its price tag in the region of $4 million. It is actually a limited production car that was built to celebrate Lambo’s 50th anniversary. It has been crafted in an aesthetic aerodynamic design using carbon fiber construction to make sure it has the best and most effective power to weight ratio. This 7-speed semi-automatic transmission supercar is powered by a 6.5L V12 engine that is capable of producing 740hp enough to make it hit an impressive top speed of 220mph and can accelerate from 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds.

Lamborghini earned its glory. Their fastest cars have been built in a great aerodynamic design using the lightest material to enable it to hit top speeds fast and efficiently. The V12 engines, on the other hand, give them the necessary power to accelerate and reach these insane speeds. Actually, there can’t be a discussion about fast cars without the mention of Lamborghini!
