Lamborghini: Brand Value and Models That Move

Born out of a desire to improve upon their future rivals, Ferrari, the start of Lamborghini can be traced back to Ferruccio Lamborghini’s misgivings with his personal Ferrari models. While he liked and owned many Ferraris, he found that the engines were too harsh for touring cars, the clutches were not up to par, and the constant need for maintenance were all detrimental. When he brought up these issues to Enzo Ferrari, he was famously rebuffed by the Ferrari CEO, and so Lamborghini’s quest to create cars that could outshine Ferrari’s began.

About Lamborghini

Expect the unexpected

The company was established in 1963 and worked with engineering firm Società Autostar, which included five former Ferrari engine engineers, to create a more subdued yet powerful V12 engine that would be used for half a century by Lamborghini. In 1964, the brand’s first model, the 350 GT, was produced in a small 120-unit batch. The car gained much attention and quickly proved that the company could compete with Italy’s best. 

In 1966, Lamborghini created the Miura, the first of the brand’s long line of legendary mid-engine sportscars. Over the decades, they would add the likes of the Diablo, Countach, Murcielago, Aventador, and more to that long line.

Lamborghini at Online Auctions: Most Popular Lamborghinis

It’s not inaccurate to say that every model you see at a Lamborghini auction is a popular car. The brand has created some of the most visible and wanted cars globally. For many, the name is synonymous with wealth and success, so getting any model is already a huge accomplishment. Still, we have compiled a list of some of the Lamborghini models you should look out for when at auctions.

Lamborghini Urus

Lamborghini Urus

Accounting for well over half of Lamborghini’s current sales, the Urus is by far the Italian automaker's most popular model. Serving as Lamborghini’s return to the highly popular SUV market after many decades, the Urus allows for a more accessible driving experience while still sharing many of the automaker’s hallmarks.

Introduced in 2018, the Urus features a powerful 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 making an absurd 657 horsepower ad 627 lb-ft of torque. This is, without a doubt, not only one of the fastest SUVs available but also vehicles in general.

Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Aventador

Serving as Lamborghini’s flagship supercar offering since 2011, the Aventador has had plenty of time to attract attention itself. Featuring plenty of stealth aircraft design elements, the Aventador turns heads to this day.

Powering the Aventador is a naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 that makes 769 hp and 531 lb-ft. The Aventador houses the last naturally-aspirated non-hybridized V-12, with the future unclear if the famous twelve-cylinder comes back at all in some other form. The end of an era for the company, the Aventador will surely be popular moving forward.

Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini Huracan

The Huracan continues Lamborghini’s line of “cheaper” non-flagship supercars. First introduced in 2014, the Huracan has proved to be a very capable sports car worthy of the Lamborghini name and not something that should simply be settled for.

Powering the Huracan is a 5.2L V10 producing 631 hp and 417 lb-ft. Coupled with a smooth-shifting and responsive seven-speed automatic transmission directing power to all four wheels and the Huracan has no issues hitting 60 mph in less than three seconds, making it a tempting choice for anyone.
