What makes a Lamborghini better than a Ferrari? It isn’t that simple for these luxury cars. While one might have a more expensive model, the other has a car with a faster top speed. Is it even fair to say a Ferrari isn’t as good as a Lamborghini? Not really.
Is a Ferrari more expensive than a Lamborghini?
With so many models and variables to choose from, it is hard to say which brand is faster. Lamborghini comes in three models for 2021. The Avantador, Huracan, and Lamborghini Urus. There is also a limited edition Sián FKP 37 and Sián Roadster. Ferrari has a more extensive lineup but still only has about five or six models. The SF90, f8 Tributo, Roma, Portofino, Monza SP1, and the 812.
Ferrari has many more options to choose from over Lamborghini. However, Lamborghini has some faster cars, even if there are fewer of each.
The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 has a V12 and a top speed of over 220 miles per hour. Its max power is 785 CV (577 kW) @ 8,500 rpm. That’s faster than the 2021 Ferrari SF90 Spider. The SF90 gets 1000 CV @ 7500 rpm from the V8.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast has a V12 getting 800 CV. This has top speeds of around 212 miles per hour. Compared to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ gets 770 CV from a naturally aspirated V12. It has a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). The 812 starts at $335,000, and the SVJ is just around $500,000.
Why is Lamborghini better than Ferrari?
Lamborghini being better than Ferrari is too subjective. At the same time, Lamborghini has high-speed and well-made vehicles, something on the inside leaves you wanting more. These cars can lack certain creature comforts that some drivers would want. On the other hand, Ferrari focuses a lot on the “wow” factor of interior specifications. Leather, stitching, cup holders. While Lamborghini has exterior looks that offer a “wow” factor, some drivers want more on the inside.
The Lamborghini Huracan starts at around $260,000 and has a top speed of around 202 miles per hour. The Urus, the new SUV, starts at around $200,00 and speeds around 190 miles per hour. One of the cheaper Ferrari options, the Portofino, starts at $215,000. It technically has a backseat, but not much can really fit back there.
What makes a car a sports car or supercar?
Ferrari and Lamborghini both make fast cars that suit a variety of needs. The word “supercar” was basically created for both brands, but what makes these super? J.D. Power offers a bit of insight into the answer.
J.D. Power suggests that British automakers like Morris, MG, and Triumph Motor Company, started the trend around the 1920s. These cars were smaller, lower to the ground, and frequently had convertible tops. By the nature of these differences, the cars were quicker and handled better than the larger counterparts.
Weight distribution improved while the weight of cars, in general, went down. Automakers replaced aluminum parts with steel parts for weight reduction. And the most obvious improvement was the engine. Engines became faster, stronger, and arguably more fun to drive. Thus, our current Ferrari and Lamborghini lineups.
So there isn’t much evidence that Lamborghini is better than Ferrari. Both brands have strengths and weaknesses. Both brands will fit the needs of certain drivers but not others. There is nothing wrong with having options, even in supercar brands.
