5 Iconic Lamborghinis That Aren’t A Gallardo

The Lamborghini brand is widely known and well-loved by exotic car enthusiasts and makes it on the list of many people’s dream cars. As time passes we become more and more familiar with the latest and greatest models and all of the updates they’ve gotten to make them faster and more modern year after year. It seems like everyone except collectors has moved on to the Gallardo and the Huracan, but there are many rare and classic Lamborghini models that helped shape the future of cars before we even realized it.

Lamborghini Diablo

The Lamborghini Diablo is one of the most iconic cars of its time, and even if you’ve never seen one in person you can instantly recognize the unique design. They are becoming less and less common to find, making them even more collectible, and there have been far too many attempts to make realistic looking replicas than many people would prefer.

Lamborghini Miura

The Lamborghini Miura is a forgotten legend that not only set Lamborghini as one of the premier supercar designers but also set the stage for a new generation of supercars. They are rare to find and just as rare to see on the streets, but when you see one the one-of-a-kind headlights you’ll recognize it immediately.

The unique design of the Miura, as well as the engineering behind it, set it apart from cars of its time, making it not only stand out appearance wise but also one of the first mid-engine, rear-wheel drive supercars ever produced.

Lamborghini LM002

When the Lamborghini Urus made its first appearance, many people seemed to forget that the supercar manufacturer did in fact make another SUV many years ago – the LM002. It wasn’t popular and it didn’t sell well, which is probably why you’ve never heard of one or even seen one in person.

Lamborghini Countach

The Countach is an 80s favorite and blends together classic Lamborghini styling with the body lines iconic to the decade. It sits well with other exotics cars like the Lotus Esprit and the Delorean which shared the same stunning yet boxy appearance that has made it a collector favorite over the years.

Lamborghini Murcielago

Growing up the Lamborghini Murcielago was my favorite car to play in Need For Speed, and I remember it being the first time I ever acknowledged my own personal passion for cars. The Murcielago is powerful, stylish and one of the brand’s more modern looking cars on this list.

Lamborghini has produced so many stunning, powerful and iconic cars of the decades of design, but that doesn’t stop people from focusing on the newest, best performance and most aggressively designed models that have skyrocketed in popularity over the past few years.
