The Ferrari vs. Lamborghini rivalry is legendary, having spanned decades and a tremendous suite of sports cars from both exotic automakers. Ferrari’s Prancing Horse and Lamborghini’s Raging Bull are in this sense in eternal competition with each other, and the vehicles themselves are as different as their icons. 


Styling and Design

There are very clear styling differences between  Ferrari and Lamborghini, and much of it comes down to elegance vs. ostentation. 

  • Ferraris tended to sport elegant, sweeping bodywork with a variety of hidden aerodynamic features — such as the Ferrari 812 Superfast’s front diffusers and curved dams — to allow the vehicles to slice through the air with ease.
  • Lamborghinis tend to favor external aerodynamic features with sharp edges. Their designs are much flashier and less subtle.

Interior

While both Ferrari and Lamborghini interiors boast meticulous craftsmanship, the difference is stark: Lamborghini interior tend to be spartan affairs, more utilitarian than comfortable, while every Ferrari is a showcase of the fact that form, function, comfort, and convenience can all coexist brilliantly. 

The SF90 Stradale, for instance, boasts a functional cockpit with plush leather trim, as well as tech amenities such as a 16-inch digital gauge that displays both driving and infotainment information, along with a secondary display for the passenger to view vehicle data. It’s a performance car first and foremost, but Ferrari has consistently demonstrated that world-class performance and world-class comfort can go together.

Power

Ferrari makes the most of its powertrains in a way that no Lamborghini does. 

  • Lamborghini’s current engine lineup consists of V8, V10, and V12 options, with the V12’s output peaking at 759 hp. 
  • Ferrari’s current engine lineup features V8 and V12 options. The Ferrari 812 Superfast outclasses the competition with the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever, producing an incredible 800 hp and 529 lb-ft of torque. The end result is a vehicle that can jump from 0 – 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and reach a stunning top speed of 211 mph.
