Lamborghini is the car of choice for many people with big bank balances and grand personalities, but do they have trunks?
All modern Lamborghinis come with trunks: the Aventador and Huracan have front-fitted trunks, whereas the Urus, Lamborghini’s SUV, has a rear-fitted trunk. The typical rear-loaded engine build on a Lamborghini means that storage space is dramatically small, but it is still there.
Read on to learn more about Lamborghini and the cars they build.
Rivalry Through the Ages
It’s an age-old motoring story that most people in the industry are aware of. It’s the almost bitter rivalry between two Italian superpowers – Lamborghini and Ferrari.
The rivalry that has existed since the sixties has driven innovation and competition across the board. Lamborghini was essentially born and bred from this rivalry, with Ferrari having created what would become its arch-nemesis.
We set the scene in 1948, in Italy – Ferruccio Lamborghini has just founded the business that would make him rich. It was called Lamborghini Trattori, and it manufactured tractors and other farming equipment.
Ferruccio was a lover of fine cars, and it’s said that at one point, he had enough cars to drive a different one every day of the week. We’re not just talking Italian sports cars, though – he was also a fan of Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar.
However, the time would come when Ferruccio found it in himself to purchase a Ferrari – a relatively new road car brand on the market. He purchased a Ferrari 250 GT but was almost immediately displeased.
Allegedly, Ferruccio complained that the Ferrari was too aggressive, and seemed more like a retrofitted track car than a luxurious road car. He was also disappointed with their mechanical builds, which always needed repairs.
In a 1991 interview with a motoring magazine, Ferruccio exposed a heated debate between himself and Enzo Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari. He claimed Enzo had declared, “Lamborghini, you may be able to drive a tractor, but you will never be able to handle a Ferrari properly!”
Now, Ferruccio wasn’t going to take this displeasure laying down. He decided he’d use his motorsports knowledge and engineering ability to create a vehicle that could outperform Ferrari.
He was an entrepreneur at heart, and he knew he’d be able to make something that motoring fans would flock to in droves. It was his dream to build the ‘perfect’ exotic car, and he’d come to devote his entire life to the aspiration.
Modern Motoring Marvel
Today, Lamborghini is a success, both in engineering and financial terms. In 2019, the company was valued at around eleven billion dollars, and it had seen huge sales figures – at least for an exotic car company.
While Ferrari had a bigger line-up, Lamborghini was much more exclusive. In 2020, they had just three cars on the books, along with a string of one-off, or limited edition vehicles.
The three vehicles were the Huracan, the Aventador, and the Urus. However, only the latter stood out from the bulk of the Lamborghini pack – it was the company’s first SUV.
When it comes to trunk space – something people always look at with a new car – Lamborghini is understandably lacking. Their enormous, rear-loaded engines and their dynamic, sleek builds don’t leave much room for storage.
However, the Huracan and Aventador have front-fitted trunks, boasting 150, and 110 liters of capacity, respectively. Understandably, the Urus is much more expansive, and it of course comes with a much larger trunk.
It’s in the rear of the vehicle and expands some way into the car itself. Overall, the Urus has a massive 616 liters of storage space, making it top of the class where Lamborghini is concerned.
While Ferrari doesn’t have an SUV on the books, they do have some vehicles with rear-fitted trunks. In fact, Ferrari has four vehicles in their roster with front-loaded engines, meaning the rear of the car is open for trunk space.
As many experts have criticized, you don’t purchase a Lamborghini for its carrying capacity. You’re buying a Lamborghini to turn heads, drive at breakneck speeds, and have a commanding road presence.
Take the Sián Roadster, for example; a gorgeous, stylish, and dramatically modern hybrid ‘hypercar’. Supposedly, it boasts no trunk space whatsoever, but it does come with a three million dollar price tag.
Would you sacrifice storage space to own one of the most beautiful and futuristic vehicles available on the market?
