How to differentiate between Lamborghini Models

When it comes to luxury cars, Lamborghinis are some of the most coveted in the world. While many people can identify a Lamborghini, not many can identify what model. With the same angular build, downturned hoods, and sharp details, it is definitely hard for the average person to identify what we are looking at.

Lamborghinis may be one of the most distinct automotive brands in the world, but unless you’re a car geek, it’s hard to tell the difference between each model when side by side. Don’t worry, we will show you how to differentiate between Lamborghini models in this post.

mph club is going to give you some advice on how to pinpoint exactly what model you are looking at.

How to Know the Model Type of Lamborghini From the front?

There are many different Lamborghini models on the road, but how can you tell which one it is from the front? The answer is not as difficult as you might think. Below are some tips to differentiate the models of Lamborghini from the bumper.

1- Headlights and The Grill

Just by looking at the shape of the headlights and the grill, you can usually tell which Lamborghini model you’re looking at.

The Lamborghini Aventador and Huracán may look similar in retrospect but still have notable differences all throughout their bodies. 

The Huracan’s headlights stretch in a more horizontal manner from left to right. The Aventador’s headlights are triangular-shaped and stretch out upwards more like large wings.

Their grills have a much more pronounced difference. The Aventador’s grills are separated with square-shaped air intakes under each headlight, unlike the Huracan that almost looks like it’s growling at you with a larger, stretched-out grill. Similar to the headlights, the Huracan’s features are elongated in the front. These differences are very noticeable when you have the two types side by side, but what happens if you put an Aventador S next to an Aventador and a Huracan Evo next to a Huracan?

The headlights between the different Aventador and Huracan models remain the same, but the grills clearly differ here. When comparing the Aventador S to the “standard” Aventador, you’ll notice that its grill still has two separated areas under each headlight for air intake. Part of the bumper looks like teeth or fangs as it separates the grill and stretches down from the nose of the car.

The Huracan Evo maintains this large mouth-looking grill, yet it has a sharper diagonal cut for the air intakes underneath the headlights. It is also connected to the nose of the hood unlike the regular Huracan bumper.

2- Badges And Hoods

The badge and hood are more subtle differences. The Huracan’s hood is flatter and continues to point downwards. Since the outline of the hood goes right over the Lamborghini badge on the nose of the car, the hood is indented right above the logo. It is almost as if the badge interrupts the shape of the hood. Likewise, the Aventador does the same thing but creates a sharp point above the badge as opposed to just a flat indented line right above it like on the Huracan.

Differently, the body of the Aventador also raises upwards on the left and right sides of the hood whereas the Huracan does not lift at all.

3- Air Intakes

Over the years, Lamborghini has continuously modified the design of this feature. The side air intakes are located within the wheel arches and are positioned as a single element, mounted on parts of the structure. 

If you are passing by one of these exotics on the highway, this is where this tip may come in handy to recognize them. On the side and behind the doors are very visible grills for air intake. Triangular looking and much smaller side pockets will be on the Huracan, and the Aventador will have a large rectangular space for air intake that could ‘fit a backpack’.

In addition, these elements are painted black in color, which reduces heat radiation. The air intakes are largely responsible for cooling the auxiliary units, batteries, and brakes. They also protect against a possible collision with other cars or objects while driving at blistering speeds. Such features make for one of the most vital components of a modern car.

1- Taillights and Exhaust

Lamborghinis are called bulls for a reason. They are strong, and some of the quickest cars in the world. For this reason, it is definitely a necessity to be able to recognize them from the back when they pass right by you.

The Huracan taillights are more like a slim stripe while the Aventador looks like three letter Y’s sideways. In terms of the exhausts, the Aventador has a centered exhaust that almost looks like the shape of an HDMI port. The Aventador S has triple exhausts in the shape of a triangle in the same location. 

On the other hand, the Huracan separates the four exhausts with two on each side, and the EVO is the model with only two exhausts. They are located on either side of the license plate and higher up than all the other models compared with.
