Il meglio del Automobili Lamborghini

No brand embodies the spirit of the supercar more than Lamborghini. Lamborghinis appeal to the kid in all of us because they are the closest you can get to driving a stealth fighter jet on the road. They are lovingly designed to elicit the most visceral driving experience and create maximum road presence. In a Lamborghini, the raw mind-bending speed is equally as important as the violently in-your-face attitude. From the interior switches borrowed from a spaceship to the howl of the V12 behind your head, you’ll never forget where you are when you’re piloting a Lambo.

Lamborghini talks louder, dresses flashier, and parties harder than its more dignified cousin Ferrari. The famous scissor doors are merely exclamation points on a wedge-shaped supercar made entirely of exclamation points. Driving a Lamborghini is an occasion — a thrilling, giggly, sweaty-palmed event that indulges your every sense with Italian excess. To help indulge your senses with said excess, we’ve compiled ten of our favorite Lamborghinis available to rent right now on Turo!

We have here a few examples of the Gallardo and its recent replacement, the Huracán. Traditionally, most Lamborghinis have been named after famous Spanish fighting bulls (huracán is also Spanish for hurricane); Huracán was a bull that fought in 1879 and was known for its courage. This is Lambo’s smaller, lighter lineage that uses a V10 instead of the V12s of the flagship monsters. But rest assured, they are plenty fast and plenty mad. Peruse Turo’s best from Automobili Lamborghini.

Adam’s 2017 Huracán LP 580-2 Spyder

Lomita, CA

The Huracán LP 580-2 Spyder is everything you want in a Lamborghini: visually arresting, incredibly powerful, and a little frightening. The “LP” stands for “Longitudinal Posteriore,” referring to the longitudinally mounted V10 that puts 580 metric horsepower through the two rear wheels — “580-2.” And it’s a Spyder, so you can enjoy all the drama in the open air.

Nik’s 2016 Huracán Spyder

Bricket Wood, UK

This Bianco Canopus Matt white Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder uses all four wheels to put the naturally-aspirated 5.2L V10’s 603 horsepower to the road. Even with the top down, the Huracán Spyder can reach a top speed of 201 mph, so take care when you strap yourself in.

Sarfraaz’s 2015 Huracán

London, UK

When it debuted, the Huracán coupe was named “Supercar of the Year 2014” by Top Gear. This one rocks some seriously loud green paint to match the shouty angular body.

Beverly Hills Luxury Rental’s 2017 Huracán

Beverly Hills, CA

With the adrenaline rush you’ll get from wrestling with this mean bull, you can skip the morning coffee and stick with the 93-octane pick-me-up.

Adam’s 2015 Huracán

Lomita, CA

This LP 610-4 coupe punctuates its clean white look with some cheeky orange brake calipers that wrap around 15-inch carbon-ceramic brakes in the front and 14-inch rotors in the back. Thanks to these massive stoppers, the Huracán is far safer than the Lambos of old that took a safety-fifth approach.

Imtiaz’s 2013 Gallardo LP 560-2 Spyder

Los Angeles, CA

This late-model Gallardo Spyder is a bit of a lunatic, leaving you to deal with its 552 horsepower with the rear wheels only. But you don’t hop into a Lamborghini for a tame ride, and this one certainly won’t give that to you.

Jeff’s 2010 Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder

Chantilly, VA

With its luxurious red-on-black interior and giant carbon rear wing, this 2010 LP 560-4 is a showstopper. Its AWD system should keep you safely on the road turning heads.

Ernest’s 2008 Gallardo Superleggera

Los Angeles, CA

This limited-run 2008 Gallardo Superleggera (“superlight”) drops 220 pounds from the base Gallardo by lightening everything from the sport seats to the wheel nuts with carbon. Only 172 units of this generation’s Superleggera were sold in the US, making this orange bad boy a rare and collectable piece of history.

Jeremy’s 2008 Gallardo Spyder

Provo, UT

Good luck finding many other Lamborghinis to rent in Utah. This Gallardo Spyder keeps it fresh with a mint green paint job and 520 horses.

Omar’s 2005 Gallardo

Springfield, VA

Here’s an early-model Gallardo with yellow paint, yellow brake calipers, and a yellow interior. If this car doesn’t scream Hot Wheelz, I don’t know what does.
