Lamborghini 350 GT (1964)
The first production vehicle by Lamborghini, the Lamborghini 350 GT was designed for long-distance and high-speed driving. It was based on a prototype named the Lamborghini 350 GTV. The GT sported a 2-door coupé body and a 3.5-liter V12 engine.
The model was so successful that it had set up the fledgling auto manufacturer as a serious threat to Ferrari.
Lamborghini 400 GT (1966)
There are actually two Lamborghini 400 GTs. The first one is usually either referred to as the 400 GT Interim or simply the 400 GT. This model was nearly identical to the 350 GT except it contained a 3,929 cc V12 engine.
Only 23 of these cars were built, three of which had an aluminum body.
The other 400 GT is often referred to as the 400 GT 2+2. This model had minor sheet metal differences and also a different roofline. This car also had a Lamborghini designed gearbox.
There were 224 400 GT 2+2 cars built.
Lamborghini Miura (1966)
The Lamborghini Miura was manufactured between 1966 and 1973. It was the first supercar to have a rear mid-engined two-seat layout. Since the Miura, this has become the standard layout for high-performance supercars.
When it was released, it was the fasted production car on the road.
Lamborghini Espada (1968)
The Lamborghini Espada was manufactured between 1968 and 1978. It’s a grand touring coupé with four seats inside. The word “Espada” is the Spanish word for “sword” and refers to the sword used by bullfighters.
The Espada, as well as the Lamborghini Islero, would replace the 400 GT 2+2.
Lamborghini Islero (1968)
While the Lamborghini Espada was manufactured for ten years, the Islero was only built from 1968 to 1969.
Carrozzeria Touring was the company that designed the chassis for Lamborghini for its first few years of existence. When Carrozzeria Touring went bankrupt, they were replaced with Carrozzeria Marazzi. Marazzi designed the Islero to resemble the 400 GT but altered to the track to allow for fatter tires.
Lamborghini Jarama (1970)
The Lamborghini Jarama was manufactured from 1970 and 1976 and is a 2+2 grand tourer. The name refers to the Jarama river, where fighting bulls are bred.
The Jarama was intended to be an Espada for the American market. It was redesigned in order to fit American driving standards.
Lamborghini Urraco (1973)
The Lamborghini Urraco is a 2+2 coupé and was intended to be an affordable Lamborghini car instead of being another supercar. Its name means “little bull.”
Lamborghini Countach (1974)
The Lamborghini Countach was manufactured from 1974 all the way to 1990. It’s a rear-wheel-drive, mid-engine sports car that popularized the “cab-forward” design. That’s where the passenger compartment is pushed forward in order to make room for the engine that’s mounted in the rear.
Lamborghini Silhouette (1976)
With only 54 units built, the Lamborghini Silhouette is a sports car that has two seats, rear-wheel-drive, and two doors. It was manufactured from 1976 to 1979.
The design is based on the Lamborghini Urraco except this model was more angular. The car’s top was 162 mph (260 km/h). There are only 31 units known to still exist.
Lamborghini Jalpa (1981)
The Jalpa was based on the Silhouette and was intended to be seen as an affordable Lamborghini. It was significantly cheaper than the Countach. This model was built from 1981 to 1988 and was the last car from Lamborghini to have a V8 engine until the Urus was manufactured.
The Jalpa was praised as having better visibility and being easier to drive than other Lamborghini models.
Lamborghini LM002 (1986)
This car is also referred to as the “Lamborghini truck.” It’s an off-road vehicle that was built between 1986 and 1993. The car is based on two prototypes, the Cheetah and the LM001.
Lamborghini Diablo (1990)
The Diablo is a mid-engine, high-performance sports car that was manufactured from 1990 to 2001. It’s the first production vehicle by Lamborghini to ever reach a top speed of 200 mph (320 km/h). “Diablo” is Spanish for “devil.”
Lamborghini Murciélago (2001)
