Since Lamborghini came out of the fields and onto the roadways, there has been nothing but amazing and stellar pieces of machinery to come out of those crazy Italian doors. Basically since day one, they have been the epitome of unorthodox motoring and, all things considered, pretty out-of-this-world.
Lamborghini has held this title from the 1960's, which is pretty impressive. But it wasn't really until the '70s when Lamborghini started actually producing today's spaceships for the road. If there was any proof of extra-terrestrial beings on Earth, they would drive Lambos.

Look at the Countach, for example. The Countach is more of a doorstop with a leather interior than an actual car. Just looking at the thing makes you want to rethink all humanity and the human race itself because there is no limit to the amount of drugs you would need to think this one up. It is Edgar Allen Poe with scissor doors.
Probably one of the most iconic and definitely most striking Italian cars of all-time, there is a pretty good reason as to why every '70s and '80s child had a poster of this monster taped to their wall. Tesla's "Ludicrous Mode" should have just been a picture of a 1977 Countach.
But my favorite part out of all of this is that, up until the Murcielago, this trend kept on going until it was as long as an Amish Family Tree.

And it was indeed with the Murcielago when that craziness started to fizzle out and die. In the post-Murcielago world of Italia, it seems that the raging bull had softened; blending in with the competition it was supposed to crush.
Lamborghini's direct competion with Mercedes, Ferrari, and Mclaren are easily surpassing them in any way possible. Lamborghinis of today are only considered as crazy as your aunt Linda because of its pre-deceased relatives. The Huracan, is soft. It looks and feels like any other supercar on the market, and that is especially thanks to its shared backbone with the Audi R8.
The Aventador is cool, but not as cool as it could be. It too is blending in with the crowd more and more, all being aided on by its ten year-old design. And even if the Aventador is super crazy and brash, look at the future of the company. The Sian? It may be subjective, but if you have any sense of eyesight, it is hideous.

Granted the concept of the Sian is as crazy as it should be, we all know the mass-production car won't look nearly the same, only sharing the key principal ideas. But the literal elephant in the dealership is the wretched Urus, which I think we all know what would have been said about that.
As much as it pains me to say it, Lamborghini isn't the poster-on-the-wall car manufacturer anymore. Lamborghini has resigned that title, and has given it to countless other companies like Koenigsegg, Mclaren, and Pagani. Maybe it's because of the turn of time, or maybe it's because VW has a Guillotine pinching the company's neck. I'm not sure, but something needs to change. And it needs to happen fast.
