Lamborghini Veneno vs La Ferrari, Which is the Better Supercar?

La-Ferrari-05

Lambo-Veneno-01

 

Last week, two supercars were revealed, the Lamborghini Veneno and the Ferrari La Ferrari. Spectators oogled the cars as the information unfolded including the extravagant price tag. But who won best in show and which company now has the car to beat? Here’s a detailed analysis of each car and their respective merits broken down for you.

Design

The Veneno is named after the strongest and fastest fighting bull that gained recognition for killing a matador in 1914. This pure-bred Italian super sports car flaunts red, green and white colored accents on its flanks, an obvious tribute to the Italian flag. The trademark Lamborghini styling is taken to an extreme with an arrow-shaped front end, razor-sharp lines, and exaggerated proportions. The shark fin engine cover is the first of its kind and was added to increase aerodynamic efficiency, however, the outcome makes it seem more odd than sexy.

La Ferrari, on the other hand, seems like the evolution of both the Enzo and the Italia. It’s striking and innovative, yet has a sophisticated polish that wasn’t apparent in the Veneno.  The silhouette and proportions are the very natural product of its architecture and the layout of its hybrid running gears. The design has elegant lines that run the length of it’s body including a rear line that seems to divide the car in a stunning fashion. And best of all, there’s no ostentatious fins, flaps, or spoilers that ruin the sleek curves as other cars have done.

Winner: La Ferrari

Performance

The Veneno is equipped with a twelve-cylinder engine that is based on the Aventador design. It has a displacement of 6.5 liters, coupled with a 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive. With a maximum output of 552 kW / 750 hp, it accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH in just under 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 220 MPH. This is definitely not your parent’s Honda Civic.

The La Ferrari is actually a hybrid car that sports a 6262cc V12 and an electric motor that generates 120 KW to produce a total of 950hp. It will go from 0-60 in well under 3 seconds and 0 to 124 in less than 7 seconds. It’s top speed is around 220 mph, the same as the Veneno. The Ferrari’s engine is one of the most advanced engines built to date with 516 pound-feet of torque spinning up to 9,250 RPM. It also sports a dual clutch transmission that can change gear in approximately 50 milliseconds.

Winner: La Ferrari

Price and Availability

People who buy the Veneno most likely won’t care about the looks or performance compared to other super sports cars because they’re buying it for its rarity and scarcity. There will only be 4 made and with a price tag of $4.6 million, this is the ultimate car for the collector who has it all. And if you’re thinking about buying one, they’re all already sold out so you’re out of luck.

The La Ferrari is a full on production car that is replacing the aging Enzo. There will be a healthy 499 models made, not a lot by any stretch, but enough to make the most discerning collectors happy. With a price tag of $1.15 million, it’s one of the most expensive cars available on the market, but with the amount of detail put into the car, it will surely be worth it.

Winner: Veneno

 

Overall Winner

I usually love Lamborghinis. They often straddle the border between ostentatious and gorgeously sexy, and often, I forgive them for being as bold as they are. However, with their latest model, I think they pushed the boundaries just a bit too far. There are too many gills, flaps, and fins on the new car that it looks more like a japanese rice rocket than a $4 million dollar supercar. The La Ferrari on the other hand, is stunning, sophisticated, and at 1/4 the price, seems like a bargain compared to the Lambo. The overall winner here is the Ferrari by a long shot.

    I don’t know why the Lamborghini Veneno was shown at the Geneva Motor show. It isn’t a new car since It was built on the back of an Aventador The only difference is the body which is ridiculous. Furthermore they only made three of them for purchase and they are already spoken for.

    You’ll be embarrassed to show up anywhere in it. You’ll look like a twat as soon as you open the doors.

    The Veneno is unavailable and ridiculous no one should be doing any kind of comparisons with this car.

    The (Le)Ferrari actually elevates technology and performance, were as the Lamborghini doesn’t, but that’s okay because the Veneno wasn’t meant to be Lamborghini’s newest halo car. It was a show piece. A spectacle.

    veneno design may be funny and odd for most people but I am sure it is a very great design for people who love innovation. It is rather like a future design.
    Sad is there are only 3 venenos and yet they are all sold.
    laferrari design is too beautiful.
    Engine specifications are not much different.
    By the way lamborghini veneno roadster was announced in octomber 2013 and will be produced less than nine units in 2014.
    I love Lamborghini.

    Howdy, I do think your website might be having web browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in
    IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with
    a quick heads up! Apart from that, fantastic site!

    laferrari is amazing, it is by far my favorite super car. I think that it wasn’t very smart of Lamborghini to only make 4 venenos, one of which they won’t sell. Three miles per hour don’t matter very mutch laferrari go’s 217mph and the veneno go’s 220mph. Great website.

    This review is stupid! Yes the shape of Veneno is weird but its more beautiful and have striking looks than LaFerrari and it also have a stupid asshole name LAFERRARI!

    When 2000 entered the design of ferrari cars got ugly as hell! Its like a Prancing devil horse from hell!

    I like all the things from Veneno except hey are only selling 3 cars and 1 car for their museum and this is a very stupid move from them. They should have at least made 150 like the Diablo SE.
