There’s a lot to be learned in this video

If you’re only going to watch one car video today, my request is for you to watch this video. Prepared by YouTube channel Cars Evolution, this is a seven-minute video dedicated entirely to the history of Lamborghini’s models, dating back to the 350 GT, the automaker’s first-ever production car, all the way to the Urus, it’s most recent model. Along the way, you’ll also get to know some interesting facts about each of Lambo’s models. Think you know everything there is to know about Lamborghini’s mode history? Watch this video and find out.

The Automobili division was created because Ferruccio wanted to compete with established marques at that time, most notably Ferrari.

If you’re a Lamborghini historian, you know that Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini didn’t create Lamborghini Automobili until 1963, 15 years after he founded Lamborghini Tratorri in 1948. The Automobili division was created because Ferruccio wanted to compete with established marques at that time, most notably Ferrari.

The company’s first production car was the 280-horsepower 350 GT, which featured, among other things, a fully independent suspension unit. From there, Lamborghini launched models like the 400 GT 2+2, Miura, and Espada, two of the most iconic old-school Lambos in history. Other models, including the Islero, Jarama, and Urraco, were all launched within the first decade of the company’s existence.

It wasn’t until 1974 when Lamborghini launched the Countach, the same model that would usher the brand into a new level of supercar exclusivity. The Silhouette, Jalpa, and LM002 SUV soon followed. In 1990, Lamborghini launched the Diablo, the only car it built under the ownership of Chrysler. It took 11 years for Lamborghini to build its next model, the Murcielago, which a lot of us are familiar with today. The Gallardo came next, becoming the most popular Lamborghini model of all time with over 14,000 sold units. Then, in 2008, Lamborghini launched the Reventon, beginning a trend of ultra-limited Lamborghini models that now include the Sesto Elemento, Veneno Roadster, and Centenario.

The video covers all of these Lamborghinis and throws in a cool fast facts section towards the end. That facts section is particularly interesting because it talks about a lot of interesting trivia items associated with the company. Did any of you know that the Diablo’s headlights are actually the same headlights found on the Nissan 300ZX? Apparently, Lamborghini added a special carbon fiber piece inside the headlights to hide the Nissan logo.
