Lamborghini or Ferrari, which is better?
Which high end car is better? This is discussion that dates all the way back to when the owner of Lamborghini, a tractor company at the time, was insulted by the founder of Ferrari. To settle this dispute, let’s take a look at how the style, performance, and the price of these cars stack up.
The Hurican vs The Spyder
This might sound funny to say, but if you want an entry-level Lamborghini or Ferrari these two cars are for you. Just because they’re entry level does not mean that they’re cheap, or lack performance, either. The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is a vehicle that is handcrafted in Italy, and features modern day styling. One thing that Lamborghini does a bit better than Ferrari is their style technique. Lamborghini uses a very flamboyant style that sticks out like a sore thumb, and can be very “in your face.” You can likely spot a lamborghini from a mile away, because it looks like no other car on the road. This is no different with the Huracan that features a dominant front and back end. When you look at the Ferrari 448 spyder, the style aspect is a bit different. Ferrari makes their cars a bit more conservative in style, so it might take you a second to recognize what you’re looking at.
In terms of performance these two cars are no slouches either. The 448 spyder does have a bit of an edge here with its twin-turbo V8. This V8 cranks out 661hp, and will go from 0-60 in 3 seconds flat. The Lamborghini loses this race, because the Huracan’s naturally aspirated V10 is just not as powerful. The Huracan puts down 610hp, and completes a 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. Sorry Lamborghini, but you lost this race.
The one thing that both Lamborghini and Ferrari are good at, is selling their vehicles for a ridiculous amount of money. The Lamborghini Hurucan is cheaper, though, and costs $210,000. The Ferrari on the other hand starts at $275,000. If you’re in the market for a $200,000+ sports car, why wouldn’t you spend the extra $65,000 on the higher performing car?
Aventador vs Superfast
The next two cars to look at in the lineup are the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster S, and the Ferrari 812 superfast. These two beasts are some of the most powerful vehicles in each corner’s lineup. The Aventador comes packed with lightweight carbon fiber body detail, and an upgraded V12 engine that puts out 729hp. It completes a 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, and goes all the way to 200mph no problem. The Ferrari 812 does not come lacking power, either, and also completes the 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. The 812 also features a V12 engine, and boasts more power than the Aventador at 788hp. These two vehicles are very similar in terms of performance, and both feature top of the line safety as well.
When we look at the style of these two vehicles, both cars follow the same trend as they always have. The Lamborghini is very in your face, while the Ferrari is a bit more conservative. When looking at the price these cars are also similar, but the 812 can get a whole lot more expensive. The Aventador costs $424,845, and that is the ceiling unless you go custom. The Ferrari on the other hand, starts cheaper at $335,275, but can reach prices over half a million dollars. That’s a lot of money right?
Aparta v Centenario
These two cars are the highest priced, highest performance, and most stylish, of both brands. The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster boasts a powerful V12 engine with over 760hp, and has a style that makes it look extremely futuristic. If you saw this car in person, you would seriously think you were looking at a spaceship. No joke. The Centenario, as expected, reaches 0-60 in less than 3 seconds. Only 20 of these cars were produced, and all sold for $1,900,000. They’re already sold out.
The Laferrari Aperta is also one wild car. The Aperta features a V12 engine, but also combines this with a hybrid powertrain for maximum potential. The Laferrari Aperta puts down 949hp, and gets to 0-60 in under 3 seconds. The price of this car you ask? This car is ranked the 42nd most expensive vehicle sold at auction ever, and comes in at about $9,982,000. That’s a whole lot of money.
When it comes to style it really depends what type of person you are. If you want to be the center of attention, Lamborghini has your back. If you want a conservative approach a Ferrari is likely a better option. When you look at the horsepower between the two brands, it is certainly there. It is safe to say a lot of these cars are fairly even matched. So who wins? In terms of value, the Lamborghini is better all around. You can get a flashy car that everyone will know, and has the power behind it. It also won’t end up costing a small fortune to drive one.
