Lamborghinis are among the very fastest cars in the world, with top speeds ranging from 210 to 239 miles per hour. Lamborghinis are, for the most part, designed to be driven on the road rather than on the racetrack.
Although Ferruccio Lamborghini originally started off as a tractor manufacturer, he switched to designing high-end sports cars in the mid-1960s. Early successes included the 350GT, which could reach 158 miles per hour. In recent years, ultra-fast Lamborghini models include the 2006 Murciélago LP640 with a top speed of 211 mph, the 2011 Aventador LP700-4 with a top speed of 217 mph, and the 2000 Diablo Coatl, a reworking of the Lamborghini Diablo for the Latin American market, which could reach top speeds of 239 mph.
