Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce
The Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce charges into Switzerland, bringing all of 670 hp in a lightened chassis to the Geneva Motor Show. A power-to-weight ratio of 5.1 lbs. per hp and all-wheel drive mean a 0-60 mph sprint in just 3.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 212 mph.
The LP 670-4 is being produced in an exclusive run of just 350 vehicles, and they say that "distinctive design refinements" will proudly shout this exotic's abilities to the world.
A new front and rear grace the vehicle, as do an "innovative engine bonnnet" and a choice of rear spoilers both big and small. Carbon fiber and Alcantara inside match the exterior's bespoke design.
Reductions in weight were achieved by an extensive re-working of chassis, engine, transmission, and interior. And the 30 hp gain in the engine room was achieved by altering the valve timing and bettering the engine's breathing through the intake system.
President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini Stephan Winkelmann proudly calls the new Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce "more extreme and uncompromising than virtually any other automobile" and promises that the small collection of potential owners should enjoy a driving experience nonpareil.
