The Lamborghini Elemento is, no doubt, a head turner. This two-door, two-seater stunner is a sight to behold. Its video game counterpart, the Zentorno, is an excellent option when playing Gran Turismo. But how does the real Lamborghini Elemento compare to the virtual Zentorno? Here’s a head-to-head comparison. Let’s see which car comes out on top.
Lamborghini Elemento vs Zentorno | Which Car Wins?
Which is Faster?
The Lamborghini Elemento has an astounding acceleration speed of 0-62 mph in just 2.5 seconds and can run as fast as 210 km/h. That is even faster than the ultra-rare Lamborghini Veneno, which hits the same acceleration speed in 2.8 seconds.
Meanwhile, the Zentorno is one of the most popular and powerful supercars on GTA Online. However, Rockstar did not provide many details about its specifications. The only way to improve its speed is to upgrade the engine to level four, which costs $73,000. Hence, the Elemento wins this one for the accurate and precise data about its speed and power.
Which Looks Better?
Both cars look amazing. (Considering the price tag, it would be a bummer if one of them was lacking in this department.) This is a matter of aesthetics, but if the Zentorno can be customized any way you like it, the sky is the limit for this car.
Then there’s the case of the Zentorno being patterned after the Lamborghini Elemento. This gives it the edge on innovation, plus extra style points for it being the model for the video game car. Regardless, this one goes to the Pegassi Zentorno mainly because you can modify anything you want. With exhaust, xenon lights and countless paint jobs available, the Zentorno easily takes the cake.
Which Has Better Features?
The Lamborghini Elemento is known for its top-notch interior and exterior dynamics, as expected in a luxury car. It projects elegance and is backed by unmatched power. As much as you want to keep it on clear roads, it won’t back down, even against uneven terrain. It’s durable despite being lightweight. Its carbon fiber technology maximizes the engine power, allowing you to reach unprecedented speed.
The Zentorno, meanwhile, is a bit hard to measure because it’s a virtual car. If we’re going that path, the Zentorno takes this one by a wide margin. It can be customized to your liking. You can even put armor on it, as the neighborhoods in GTA aren’t the safest. You can even use it for heists! Now that’s literally a bad boy.
The Zentorno costs $725,000, which translates to a relatively high amount of game time. Meanwhile, the Elemento’s price tag at its release in 2012 was $2.2 million. Five years later, a second-hand unit costs $4.5 million. There’s no debating this one; the Elemento wins.
In terms of power and capabilities, the Zentorno wins. Yet if we account for everything that matters, the Elemento wins this battle. Just imagine the amount of prestige it brings along with it. Also, it’s one of the rarest cars in the world, which counts for a lot!

Lamborghini cars are no strangers to the spotlight, so having some of their units featured in different forms of media is not a big surprise. The Elemento is impressive in its own right, but the idea of a real-life Zentorno is too hard to pass up. Don’t be surprised if Lamborghini comes up with a model on par with or even better than this behemoth video game car!
