4 Cars Similar to Lamborghini Aventador

A 3d illustration of yellow lamborghini aventador driving during sunset.

My favorite THREE cars similar to the Lamborghini Aventador are the:

  • 2022 Ford GT
  • 2021 Ferrari 812 SUPERFAST/GTS
  • 2022 Maserati MC20

Judging by its name, the Lamborghini Aventador is indisputably Italian. Produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer, Lamborghini, the Aventador is a mid-engine sports car.

For 2022, it comes in two trim levels, the Ultimate Coupe and the Ultimate Roadster. The rumor mill has it that these two trims will be the Aventador’s last edition. As such, only 600 units will be produced globally-so hurry and get one if you can!

Featuring a bullishly chiseled, sleek, modern design that’s aggressive in appearance and demeanor, it’s no surprise to learn that the Aventador was actually named after a Spanish fighting bull that fought at the Zaragoza in 1993. Perhaps that’s because, like riding a fighting bull, the 2022 Lamborghini Aventador is a high-performance car-one that offers an unforgettable driving experience.

If the exterior is impressively memorable, you will find the interior equally so. Typical of Lamborghinis, every Aventador’s interior can be accessed via a set of scissor doors that swing open.

Designed with innovative new materials that allow for better cooling, more responsive handling, and an improved braking system, the Aventador’s interior features a digital gauge cluster that changes its layout whenever you select a new drive mode—Strada, Sport, and Corsa.

Its Ego mode allows you to personalize the settings for powertrain, steering, and suspension. Add to this voice commands and Apple CarPlay capability, a performance data recorder that saves lap times and tracks data, and you have a space-age bull on wheels.

And what’s under the hood? Just looking at the Aventador, you can sense its power. Carrying a mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine between its legs, this bull produces 769 horses. The engine is twinned with an aggressive front end and four-wheel drive that the 531 pound-feet of torque makes its way to via a seven-speed automated-manual transmission.

With an astonishing top speed of 209 mph, the Aventador can accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.7  to 2.9 seconds. The Lamborghini Aventador is among some of the most expensive cars in the world. The Ultimate Coupe can be yours for around $502,000 and the Ultimate Roadster for $551,000.

I am sure it does not come as a surprise that the Aventador ranks as among the least efficient cars on the market.

PULP fuel consumption for the 2022 Lamborghini Aventador is dependent on the type of engine, transmission, or model chosen. The Aventador currently offers PULP fuel consumption from 16.91 to 16.91L/100km. 

EPA fuel economy ratings for the Aventador are 11mpg (combined), 9mpg (city), and 16mpg (highway).

Like most sports cars, the Avendator provides seating for only two.

4 Cars Similar to the Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador’s features and specs put it in comparative competition with its key rivals of the……..

1. 2022 Ford GT

From bodywork to bullish, sinewy looks, to price range and arguably power, this American sports/race car is friends with the Italian Aventador. Similar to the Aventador, the Ford GT is also a mid-engine two-seater sports car.

When it comes to design specs, the new 2022 Ford GT is the ultimate supercar. It features a high-tech all-electric powertrain, carbon-fiber body, and state-of-the-art suspension. Similar to the Aventador, the GTs inside is not all that wow. So much so that it has been described as “extremely minimalistic and driver-focused, with almost every control relegated to the race-car-inspired steering wheel.”

Focused on driving, the carbon-fiber seats and sections of the dashboard are covered in Lightspeed Blue microsuede. Generally, the GT lacks the wide range of infotainment and connectivity features of most modern cars. In mitigation though, it does have a 6.5-inch touchscreen that supports Ford’s Sync 3 software. It also responds to voice commands and has built-in navigation for that odd road trip.

Turn your attention to engine, transmission, and performance, and the GT is a true race car for the road. It comes endowed with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is reportedly similar to the one found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. This enables it to bump out 660 horsepower and Aventador-like, 550 pound-feet of torque.

To enable it to perform almost similar to the Aventador, the GT’s V-6 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Packing more than 650 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, the GT can go from 0-60mph in between 2.4 and 3.0 seconds-0.3 of a second faster or slower than the Aventador.

Although Ford hadn’t officially released the price for the 2022 GT at the time of going to press, you can expect (and should budget) something in the region of $500,000 for the supercar.

The Ford GT is available with PULP fuel type. Unlike most hypercars, however, the Ford GT is quite fuel efficient. The EPA estimates it’ll earn 12 mpg city and 18 highway-relatively better than the gas-guzzling Aventador.

Both sports cars come standard with two conventional seats.

2. 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast/GTS

A red, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer with a front mid-engine is a FERRARI 812 SUPERFAST Type F152M.

Aside from being both exotic Italian cars, almost similar to the mid-engine Aventador sports car, the Ferrari 812 Superfast/GST is also mid-engine-although rear-wheel-drive grand tourer-with an equally impressive Italian heritage. For 2021, the Ferrari 812 lineup gained a convertible variant. Called the GTS.

When it comes to design, both vehicles have sleek savagery that’s promised in their chiseled, athletic, powerful bodies. If you are looking for a flamboyant hypercar that is superfast and carries attested pedigree, then look no further than these two.

However, get inside the 812, and you will find that, unlike the Aventador, it has reasonably more spacious accommodation, better ergonomics, and a more modern interior design. All 812 coupes and convertibles come with a six-speaker stereo, an integrated navigation system with a standard voice-activation feature, as well as Bluetooth phone pairing, and music streaming.

Like the Aventador, the Ferrari 812 is also powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12, which delivers an almost similar 530 pound-feet of torque via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. 

Sculptured to “visually embody a sense of forward thrust”, and capable of a 211-mph top speed, the Ferrari 812 is truly a superfast car. Consequently, almost similar to the Aventador, the Ferrari 812 accelerates from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds-just 0.1 of a second slower than the Aventador.

Beginning from $335,000 for the 812 Superfast, and reaching $401,000 for the 812 GTS, both trim levels are well within the Aventador’s price range.

The Ferrari 812 SUPERFAST is available with a PULP fuel type. Dependent on the type of engine, transmission, or model chosen, the Ferrari 812 SUPERFAST currently offers fuel consumption from 15 to 15L/100km-it is slightly less fuel efficient than the Aventador. According to the EPA, it averages 12 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway.

Both give the same on the highway. The 812 GTS is rated almost similarly at 12 mpg city and 15 mpg highway. Like the Aventador, the 812’s cabin provides seating for two.

3. 2022 Maserati MC20

Similar to the Aventador, the Maserati MC 20 is also a luxurious sports car that is designed to provide its owner with a high-performance vehicle. Other than this obvious fact, however, the engine and fuel type, fuel efficiency, and seating are also most similar.

Just as sexually angular and sinewy as the Avendator, the MC 20 is comparatively just as beautiful. Akin to the Aventador, the MC20’s exterior has also been designed to look sleek and sophisticated, with tasteful luxury touches. However, whereas the Aventador can be found as both a coupe and a convertible, the MC 20 comes only as a coupe.

The interior of the MC20 is arguably a little more spacious, but as comfortable and endowed as the Aventador’s. For both cars, upward-opening ‘butterfly’ doors give you access to a two-seat cabin with quaint and clean interior designs.

Almost similar to the Aventador, the MC20’s center console has only the essential controls dotting it. Black leather seats with dark blue contrast stitching, aluminum pedals, and carbon fiber trim cover the cabin. A digital rear-view mirror equipped with a rear-facing camera assists with rear visibility.  

When it comes to what’s under the hood, despite possessing a unique twin-combustion system borrowed from Formula 1 race cars that is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the MC20’s all-new twin-turbocharged V-6 engine is less powerful than that of the Aventador. This is understandable considering the Aventador’s more powerful 6.5 V12 engine.

Consequently, the MC20’s engine pumps out 621 hp, compared to the Aventador’s best of close to 770 horses. Given its less powerful engine, the MC 20 is capable of going from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds-some 0.5 seconds slower than the Aventador. However, both have quick acceleration and their handling is race-car sharp.

Despite this, they handle themselves well enough for daily driving and for taking on road trips. Cost-wise, the MC20 checks in at $217,000 comfortably within the Aventador’s price range.

Similar to the Aventador, the 2022 Maserati M20 also fires on Premium Unleaded Petrol. However 11.5L per 100km, it’s more fuel efficient than the gas guzzler that is the Aventador. That said, both high-powered sports cars’ fuel economy isn’t anything commendable.

The MC20 coupe model is rated for 15 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. That’s a little better than the Aventador’s EPA rating. Similar to the Aventador, the MC20 is a two-seater coupe that’s focused on the driver and his/her sole passenger.

4. 2020 Ferrari 488 Pista

On the road is a blue, luxurious Ferrari 488 Spider.

In the classic case of brother meets brother, the Ferrari 488 and Aventador are in good company and understand each other. As with most Ferraris, the 488’s exterior is more or less that of the Aventador. Like the former, the equally curvaceous 488 Pista offers almost the same if not better handling, rocket-speed acceleration, and snug cabin.

Crafted by the legendary Ferrari nameplate in the same country as the Aventador, the 488’s sleek broad-shoulders, bulging fenders, and an arching roof is, like the Aventador,  the stuff of dreams. Other standard exterior amenities include heated, power-folding side-view mirrors; LED taillights; rear fog lamps; and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Inside the 488, the two-door sports car’s cabin is surprisingly spacious. However, while the Aventador is not as spacious, both their cabins feature standard equipment such as one-piece racing carbon-fiber seats, a manually adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and dual-zone automatic climate control, and keyless entry and ignition.

Unlike the Aventador, the 488 comes with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter engine; the 488 comes with a 3.9-liter V-8. However, this engine manages to generate a monstrous 711 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque that is almost equal to the Aventador’s.

Almost as with the Aventador, a seven-speed automatic gearbox also governs the proceedings-although the 488 does so by sending power to the car’s rear wheels, whereas it sends to its four-wheel drive.

As you can expect, the macho Italian, that is, the 488 rockets from a standstill to 60 mph in less than three seconds- to be exact, it makes the sprint from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.7 seconds-the same as the Aventador.

When it comes to the price range, the 488’s power and speed cost almost as much as the Aventador. Also found in only two trim levels, the Pista Coupe demands $331,000, while the Pista will set you back not less than $351,000-well within the price range of the Aventador trim levels.

Just like the Aventador, the 488 Pista sprints on PULP fuel and similarly guzzle around 11.3L/100km. Despite the EPA’s fuel economy estimates for the 2020 Ferrari 488 being 15/20 mpg city/highway, it is still more efficient than the Aventador. Both cars are sports cars. They come with twin doors and seating for two.

Like the Aventador, typical of cars in this category, there’s also hardly any cargo space on the 488. The Pista offers a mere six cubic feet of room for luggage, whereas the Aventador offers almost next to nothing.

In case the list above is still not exhaustive enough for you, you might also investigate the following electric and non-electric vehicles similar to the Lamborghini Aventador, which I would have loved to discuss time permitting:

2022 Royce Rolls Phantom (Cost range:$460,000), 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale (Cost range:$511-558,000), 2022 McLaren 765LT (Cost range:$383,000) 2022 Ferrari 296GTB  (Cost range:$323,000); 2022 McLaren 720S Spider (Cost range:$302,000);  2022 Aston Martin (Cost range: $202-252,000)
