The Lamborghini Veneno and LaFerrari

Lamborghini Veneno vs LaFerrari - which is the greatest supercar?

The new Lamborghini Veneno and LaFerrari both debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show as the most powerful of their respective breeds but which of these two incredible Italian halo cars is the greatest? We take a look at the numbers side by side to see which new supercar has what it takes to claim the title.

First of all, we know that both the Lamborghini Veneno and LaFerrari are very special supercars with both being touted as the most powerful to ever be offered by the two companies. We aren’t talking about the most power Nissan ever or the most powerful Opal – being the most powerful Ferrari and Lamborghini is a title that is truly remarkable given the long history of the two companies. However, with both of these new supercars making their world debut in Switzerland at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, many gearheads are questioning which is the better of the two Italian supercars. Before I give my opinion on which I think is the greatest Italian halo car to date, let’s take a look at the numbers on these two cars.

The Lamborghini Veneno

The Lamborghini Veneno was designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the fabled Italian automaker and to show how far the company has come in the past 50 years, Lamborghini wanted to put every bit of possible technology into the Veneno. Everything that Lamborghini knows about designing and building a supercar went into the new Veneno and the result is a car that will beat any stock road going Lamborghini ever built – and probably a great many of their race cars.

the laferrari is 5sec faster than the enzo. engineers at ferrari have not said anything on top speed yet so its not 217mph. if its supposed to compete with the bugatti it can go faster. ferrari only said its faster than 225mph. and the veneno only goes 217mph not 221mph. the ceo of lambo said it from his own lips. Ferrari Wins
How about the fuel consumption if both were to maintain top speed. How long will they last? Which one consumes more gas? Ferrari is more functionaland sleek. Lambo is more creative and futuristic. On a straight road, and on paper, ferrari wins. But it all boils down to how each car is driven and who drives it.
