Gallardo, Gallardo Superlagerra(SP), Gallardo LP560-4, Murcielago, Murcielago LP640. Thats all i can think of right now. Unless you want the older ones.

I think lamborghiniregistry.com will have what you are looking for. Click on "cars" in the left hand navigation. It has all models listed including concept cars. There are pictures and specs, and if you need further information, there are also chassis # lists for each model.

No, I mean how to tell the differece between all the types.


What exactly did you want to know? The Murcielago & the Gallardo base bodies are pratically identical, except for a few small variances between them. For instance, the Murcielago headlights are wider than the Gallardo, amongst other things..

Lamborghini Diablo-1990-2001 (VT, SV, GT, etc.) Countach-1974-90 (Predecessor of Diablo) Miura-1966-72 (Predecessor of Countach). Before Audi was the Parent Manufacturer in 2001, There was Chrysler Corporation (late 80's) but went independent again around Diablo's prime, I believe. Today, the Gallardo & Audi R8 is technically the same platform. The Difference: 2 cylinders less minus the wicked paintjob, and of course PRICE :-)

Basically I wanted to know how to tell the difference between all types of lamborghinis so I could say "this one is a lamborghini gallardo, and this is a lamborghini murcielago" and so on.


basically the gallardo is smaller, and i think its not as wide either. the murcielago has the shorter but wider wheel vents ( i guess the side skirts vent), and these vents do not attach to the bod panel. the gallardo side vent seems to almost attach to the door and do not interact with the side skirt. the upper rear vents ( above the wheel well) on the gallardo seem like they are only attached horizontally, i.e. the inside space has 3 walls showing. the murcielago rear vents seem attached to the roof, and only two sides really show. the engine compartments on both cars are different too. the gallardo has fluted vents or a glass top. the murcielago usually has one large scoop. the Murcielago has a defined front diffuser ( that lip at the very bottom) while the regular gallardo does not( the gallardo lp560 has a diffuser, but two defined sections with a carbon fiber middle. the murcielago is continuous.) the gallardo has dual exhausts, while the murcielago has one middle exhaust. A keen eye will notice that the gallardo uses two wiper blades, and the murcielago only uses one. as for older models, the diablo side skirt looks concave and the vent is split by a thin bar. it also has two separate upper rear vents. the countach is very angular and the upper rear vents are characterized by multiple splits, giving the cheese cutter appearance. if the countach has stock rims, you will see what looks like a solid circle with five holes bored through it.

The best way I know is this: compare the bodystyles of the different models (with the Diablo, Countach, Gallardo, Murcielago the windshield and front fascia are all set @ different angles) i.e.: the front styling of the Murcielago is sleeker and the aerodynamic bodylines are less interrupted in comparision to the Gallardo which is also the least expensive Lamborghini to own. The Reventon is the most powerful and expensive Lamborghini with highly distinctive wheels, daytime running xenon lamps, and radical bodystyling (plus it only comes in one color :-P ) Now, when it comes to the YEARS of the models, the main things to look for are the lights (chrome or black housing for example) the front & side aerodynamics could be different, and the wheels definitely tell the difference, too...sorry if I was long-winded, just trying to help :-D

ok thanks for the help
