2007 Lamborghini Murcielago Page 1

 

 

Like the Gallardo, the Murciélago combines Italian supercar exclusivity and power with all-wheel drive, only with even more exclusivity and power. The Murciélago is built around a 6.2-liter V-12 engine that produces 580 horsepower, cutting the zero-to-60 time down to 3.8 seconds and pushing the top end over the 200-mph barrier, making it Lamborghini’s quickest and fastest production car to date. Like the famous Countach of the ’70s (and the subsequent Diablo), the Murciélago has an insolent stance and is more aesthetically provocative than the Gallardo. But it is a much more modern car, with a carbon-composite body draped over a tubular aluminum space frame. The Murciélago also offers amenities such as air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and an available DVD navigation system. The Murciélago LP 640 sports a 6.5-liter, 640-horsepower version of the Lambo V-12, with a top speed estimated at 211 mph.
