These Are The Fastest Lamborghinis Ever Produced

And most of them have a V-12 as their common ingredient

Over the years, Lamborghini has produced a plethora of wild supercars. From the Miura to the Diablo and now the Aventador, these flagships that have represented the pinnacle of the Italian brand’s performance and design prowess always had two things in common—a V-12 engine and a rear mid-engine layout. Unsurprisingly, most of the cars on this list also follow this formula, but as a sign of the times, this list surprisingly consists of the brand’s only second SUV in its history.

1. Lamborghini Veneno (221 mph/356 km/h)

1. Lamborghini Veneno: (221 mph/356 km/h)

The Veneno is one of the best Lamborghinis ever produced. Fitted with the same naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 found in the Aventador, it sent a whopping 750 horsepower and 690 Nm (509 pound-feet) through its four wheels via a unique type of seven-speed single-clutch automated manual transmission that Lamborghini calls an Independent Shifting Rod (ISR). It offers dual-clutch-like shifts that are as fast as 50 milliseconds, and this is fitted to every V-12-powered Lamborghini ever since the Aventador came out.

Swipe up to see the stats and brief details of each vehicle on this list.

Its outrageously-styled carbon fiber body meant it was 275 pounds lighter than the Aventador, and this gave it a shorter 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 2.8 seconds versus the Aventador’s 2.9. Its 221 mph top speed also makes it the fastest Lamborghini to date, even if newer, more outrageous models came after it. Only 13 were made from 2013-2014, four of which are the coupe and nine are the roadster, and it was meant to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.

2. Lamborghini Sian FKP 37: (217 mph/350 km/h)

The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is yet another Aventador-based supercar that was also limited in production. It’s the first hybrid supercar from the Italian supercar brand, and the FKP 37 part of the model’s name honors the late Ferdinand Karl Piëch and this 1937 birth year. Only 63 will be made from 2020, 19 of which is the roadster version, and it’s every bit as outlandishly-styled as every Lamborghini it came before it.

As the marque’s first-ever hybrid supercar, the Sian FKP 37 uses the same engine as the Aventador. The 6.5-liter V-12 on its own produces 774 horsepower and 720 Nm (513 pound-feet) of torque, while the electric motor produces 34 horsepower and 38 Nm (28 pound-feet). Its total system output is 804 horsepower and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) happens in less than 2.8 seconds. It has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), which is slightly lower mainly due to its electrified powertrain adding a bit of weight over the Veneno.

Engine 6.5-liter V-12
Horsepower (Engine/Electric Motor) 774 horsepower/34 horsepower

3. Lamborghini Centenario: (217 mph/350 km/h)

The third fastest Lamborghini on this list is yet another one-off based on the Aventador. Called the Centenario, it was a supercar that’s meant to commemorate the 100th birthday of the company’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini. This supercar debuted a number of firsts for Lamborghini, namely its 10.1-inch portrait infotainment system and its rear-wheel steering.

Some of the most prominent exterior features of these supercars include its carbon fiber panels—which can either be painted or exposed, its yellow-painted (this can be customized by the customer) aerodynamic elements, and its rear diffuser that’s one of the largest ever fitted to any road car. Its 6.5-liter V-12 engine is likewise from the Aventador, and in this case, it produces 756 horsepower and 690 Nm (509 pound-feet) of torque. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) happens in just 2.8 seconds, while its top speed is 350 km/h (217 mph).

4. Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: (217 mph/350 km/h)

We now finally come to the Lamborghini Aventador, of which all of these aforementioned supercars were based. Specifically, this is the Aventador SVJ which became one of the first Lamborghini to come with the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA)—the company’s comprehensive active aerodynamics feature.

ALA is comprised of various flaps in the front spoiler, engine hood, rear wing, along with vortex generators on the car’s underside, and this enables the supercar to have a 40 percent higher downforce compared to the Avendator SV, whilst having the ability to alter its drag coefficient. Combined with its 6.5-liter V-12 that produces 759 horsepower and 720 Nm (531 pound-feet) of torque to all four wheels, the Aventador SVJ can sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, and its top speed is at 217 mph (350 km/h).

5. Lamborghini Aventador: LP700-4 (217 mph/350 km/h)

Of course, this list of fastest Lamborghinis that’s dominated by Aventador-based supercars won’t make any sense if it didn’t include the car that made those one-offs possible in the first place. The Aventador is now in its 10th year in production, and it will be the last of its kind at Lamborghini as we head into an electrified future. Its 6.5-liter V-12 was the first all-new V-12 since the 1964 Lamborghini 350 GT.

Its engine produces 690 horsepower and 690 Nm (509 pound-feet) of torque, and as you’ve seen on this list, formed the basis of numerous one-off modern Lamborghini supercars. In 2012, it was the first Lamborghini to have a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of under 3 seconds, as it was capable of reaching the century mark in just 2.9 seconds.

6. Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder: 202 mph (325 km/h)

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder is the more bonkers version of the Huracan LP610-4 (now succeeded by the Huracan Evo), and it’s the first model in the lineup to debut the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamics. Forged carbon elements adorn its exterior, and it’s what separates it from the standard Huracan.

Its engine, a 5.2-liter V-10, produces 631 horses and 600 Nm (443 pound-feet) of torque, sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Due to the convertible being slightly heavier than the coupe, its 0-100 km/h (62 mph) times of 3.1 seconds is 0.2 seconds slower, but its top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph) is exactly the same as the coupe.

7. Lamborghini Urus: 190 mph (305 km/h)

As with every manufacturer nowadays, if you want to survive in the auto industry, you’ve gotta have an SUV in your portfolio. Lamborghini wasn’t immune to this, and they released the Urus in 2018. It’s only their second SUV in their lifetime at the LM002, and it’s also the "slowest" car they currently produce. Unsurprisingly, it’s also now their best-selling vehicle.

Well, isn’t slow by any means, with a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph), but for SUVs, this is as fast as they can get. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 produces 641 horsepower and 850 Nm (627 pound-feet) of torque, sending its power to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic. Unsurprisingly, this thing is heavy with a dry weight of 4,844 lb (2,197 kg), but it’s still able to scoot from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds.

What Is The Fastest Lamborghini?

The fastest Lamborghini ever produced is the Veneno. Based on the Aventador, it was a celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary. Subtlety has been thrown out of the window, as this supercar had wild styling that was worthy of a child’s poster. Its 221 mph makes it the fastest Lamborghini to date, and that’s despite even more powerful models such as the Sian FKP 37 being released.

In terms of acceleration, it’s also one of the fastest with a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 2.8 seconds, though this is on par with its other Aventador-based siblings such as the aforementioned Sian FKP 37, Aventador SVJ, just to name a few.

How Fast Does A Lamborghini Go?

In terms of acceleration, the Lamborghini Veneno, Sian FKP 37, Centenario, and Aventador SVJ have a manufacturer-claimed 0-100 km/h (62 mph) of 2.8 seconds, while the "slowest" is the Urus with a 0-100 km/h time of 3.6 seconds. And then as for top speed, the absolute fastest Lamborghini of all time is the Veneno at 221 mph, with the Urus being in the back of the pack at 190 mph.

What Is The Fastest Lamborghini In Forza Horizon 4?

Forza Horizon is a popular racing game series that manages to blend a little bit of simulation along with the free roam and accessibility of arcade games. The arcade part is especially true because the fastest Lamborghini in-game is the Centeneraio and not the Veneno as is the case in reality. The Centenario’s 232 mph (373 km/h) top speed is also way above its 217 mph (350 km/h) figures.

Also inaccurate is the Veneno’s in-game top speed of 209 mph (337 km/h), which is much lower than the 221 mph (356 km/h) real-life top speed.
