Most of us agree that Lamborghini is a great looking car and I am sure that many wealthy people who loved cars wouldn´t hesitate to have one in their collection. Cars like Lamborghini Diablo, the Gallardo and the Murcielago are like candy to their eyes. Here is a list of 6 facts you should know about Lamborghini…
Did you know that the fastest Lamborghini, with a reported top speed of 370 km/h, is the Le Mans version of the Murcielago R-GT model. The fastest street model from Lamborghini is the Reventon with a top speed of 356 km/h and, with a reported top speed of 340 km/h is the Murcielago LP640. Both of the models have a V12 engine with more than 6000 cc.
Did you know that Lamborghini used to be an independent company, but went bankrupt in 1978 went over three changes in ownership until eventually in 1987 was sold to Chrysler. In 1998, the German company, Audi AG (incidentally a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group), became the owner of Lamborghini.
Did you know that most of the Lamborghini models are produced with a V12 engine, even though the newest model, Gallardo, have a V10 engine oil. No Lamborghini has ever been produced with less than a V8 engine.
Did you know that the first Lamborghini was produced in 1963 and called the 350GTV. With a top speed of 280 km/h, the 350GTV was extremely fast back in 1963. The first Lamborghini to go faster than 300 km/h came out in 1974 and was called the Countach.
Did you know that the Countach, the Diablo and the Murcielago all have scissors doors (that rotate up and forward on a hinge near the front of the door), but the Gallardo does not. Both the Diablo and the Countach are no longer being produced, so the only Lamborghini car with scissors doors today is the Murcielago
