It depends a lot on the Lamborghini, but it’s usually very fast

Lamborghini made its first step on the long catwalk of the automotive world back in 1963, when, during the Turin Motor Show, Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini unveiled the 350 GTV concept. The next year, Lamborghini perfected the road-going 350 GT, which was followed shortly after by the 400 GT. But the bases of Lamborghini had been established in 1962 when Ferruccio Lamborghini bought a plot of land in Sant’Agata Bolognese with the aim to build an “ultramodern” car factory.

It was Ferruccio who started the tradition of naming his car after breeds of fighting bulls, and it was also him who inspired its engineers, designers, and mechanics to come up with cars such as the Miura, Espada, Islero, and more recently, Diablo, Countach, Gallardo, Murcielago, Huracan, and Aventador. As of late, Sant’Agata Bolognese joined the SUV craze with the Urus, which also opened a new niche, that of Super-SUVs.

So, to come back to the main topic at hand here, how fast can a Lamborghini go? To answer that, we’re going to look at some of the brand’s most prominent models, including the said Urus SUV, since it has become a sales sensation of sorts.

The Lamborghini Urus is fitted with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 that makes 650 horsepower and 850 Newton-meters (627 pound-feet) of torque. It also employs a four-wheel-drive setup that uses active torque vectoring to spin each wheel in the most efficient way possible, as well as a four-wheel steering system that compensates for the butch-y size and weight. The Urus can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 305 km/h (189.5 mph).

Lamborghini Sian

The Sian is the most powerful Lamborghini ever produced thanks to a supercapacitor-based hybrid powertrain that mixes the V-12 engine with the power of electricity. The Lamborghini Sian delivers 819 horsepower, while torque is yet unspecified, but it should be somewhere above what the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ delivers, which is 720 Newton-meters (531 pound-feet). According to Lamborghini, the Sian can blast from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of over 350 km/h (217.5 mph).

Lamborghini Sian specifications
Engine 6.5-liter V-12, naturally aspirated
Power 785 hp
Torque undisclosed
Electric motor 34 horsepower

Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan came to replace the widely-popular Gallardo as Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar. There are quite a few iterations of the Huracan out there, but we’ll refer to the Performante. Its 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V-10 makes 640 horsepower and 600 Newton-meters (442 pound-feet) of torque. On flat asphalt, these figures translate into a sprint time of just 2.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of over 325 km/h (202 mph). The Huracan Performante can also clear the 0-200 km/h (124 mph) bracket in 8.9 seconds.

Lamborghini Huracan specifications
Engine 5.2-liter V-8, naturally aspirated
Power 640 hp
Torque 600 Nm/442 lb-ft

Lamborghini Centenario

Lamborghini built just 20 coupes and 20 roadsters of the Centenario, each priced at €1.75 million, before taxes. The naturally-aspirated V-12 engine was boosted to return 770 horsepower. The engine’s speed limiter was lifted from 8,350 rpm and repositioned at 8,600 rpm, yet torque remains undisclosed. What we do know is how fast and quick the Lamborghini Centenario actually is. The 0-100 km/h (62 mph) interval is dispatched in 2.8 seconds, with top speed coming in at over 350 km/h (217.5 mph). The Centenario can also reach 300 km/h (186.4 mph) from a standstill in 23.5 seconds. It needs just 290 meters (951.4 feet) to come to a complete halt from that speed.

Lamborghini Centenario specifications
Engine 6.5-liter V-12, naturally aspirated
Power 770 hp
Torque undisclosed
0-100 km/h (62 mph) 2.9 s

Lamborghini Aventador

The Aventador had a tough task ahead of it, which was to replace the mighty Murcielago. Just like the Huracan, it got a handful of versions throughout its career, but we’ll refer to the most hardcore of them all, the one that wears the SVJ badge. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ packs 770 horsepower coming from the same 6.5-liter n/a V-12. Torque sits at 720 Newton-meters (531 pound-feet) and allows for a sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) checked in 2.8 seconds. Top speed is rated at 350 km/h (217.5 mph), but the Aventador SVJ can also pull the 0-200 km/h sprint in 8.6 seconds and the 0-300 km/h sprint in 24 seconds flat.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ specifications
Engine 6.5-liter V-12, naturally aspirated
Power 770 hp
Torque 720 Nm (531 lb-ft)
0-100 km/h (62 mph) 2.8 s
0-200 km/h (124 mph) 8.6 s
0-300 km/h (186.4 mph) 24 s
Top speed 350 km/h (217.5 mph)

Lamborghini Diablo

For the Diablo, Lamborghini wanted a top speed of at least 320 km/h (mph), but as it turns out, Sant’Agata Bolognese’s engineers not only fulfilled that wish but topped it. The Lamborghini Diablo had a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph) and could reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 4.5 seconds. The supercar was powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 that made 575 horsepower and 640 Newton-meters (465 pound-feet) of torque inside the Diablo GT, which tipped the scales at just 1,460 kilograms (3,219 pounds).

Lamborghini Diablo specifications
Engine 5.7/6.0-liter V-12, naturally aspirated
Power 575 hp
Torque 640 Nm (465 lb-ft)
0-100 km/h (62 mph) 4.5 s

Lamborghini Gallardo

Since its launch in 2003, the Lamborghini Gallardo was sold in roughly 14,000 units until the carmaker decided to end its career in 2013. It’s worth noted that the supercar got a handful of special editions, so as usual, we’ll refer to the Gallardo Superleggera when discussing specs. Speaking of which, the said model used a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 pushing out 570 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 540 Newton-meters (398 pound-feet) of torque at 6,500 rpm. The Gallardo Superleggera could reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph) and dash from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds. The 0-200 km/h (124 mph) dispatch took 10.6 seconds.

Lamborghini Miura

The Lamborghini Miura was built between 1969 and 1972. In its most powerful iteration, the Miura SV, Lamborghini’s Bertone-designed sports car, relied on 385 horsepower coming from a 4.0-liter V-12. It’s worth noting that all Miura models relied on the same engine, but it made 350 horsepower inside the regular Miura and 370 horsepower inside the Miura S. Coming back to the SV, its tuned engine also made 400 Newton-meters (295 pound-feet) of torque - this happens to be the most popular and well-known Miura, a model that didn’t share the “eyelashes” around the headlamps with the other versions.

Lamborghini Miura specifications
Engine 4.0-liter V-12, naturally aspirated and carbureted
Power 385 hp
Torque 400 Nm (295 lb-ft)
0-100 km/h (62 mph) 6.9 s
Top speed 276 km/h (171 mph)
Power-to-weight ratio 297 hp/ton
