The Murcilago is an all-wheel drive, mid-engined supersports car. With an angular design and an exceptionally low slung body, the highest point of the roof is just under 4 feet above the ground. One of the vehicle's most distinguishing features are its scissor doors. which lends to the extreme image. First-generation Murcilagos, produced between 2001 and 2006, were powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company's beginnings in the 1960s.
The first-generation cars were produced between 2001 and 2006, and known simply as Murcilago, sometimes Murcilago VT. Their V12 engines produced just under 580 PS (572 hp), and powered the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds. Subsequent versions incorporated an alphanumeric designation to the name Murcilago, which indicated their engine configuration and output.
However, the original cars are never referred to as "LP 580s". A first generation Murcilago Roadster featured in the 2005 movie Batman BeginsThis was Lamborghini's first new design in eleven years, the car was also the brand's first new model under the ownership of German parent company Volkswagen. It is styled by Peruvian-born Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini's head of design from 1998 to 2005. Production of the Murcilago ended on November 5, 2010, with a total run of 4,099 cars.
The LP 670-4 SuperVeloce was debuted at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, the moniker SV was attributed to the car in line with the philosophy of all SV's that pre-dated the Murcielago - More extreme, track oriented and released at the end of the production run.The SV develops 661hp and 660Nm of torque thanks to revised valve timing and upgraded intake system.
The cars weight was reduced by around 100kg thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out, as well as a lightweight exhaust system. All SV's featured Carbon Ceramic brakes as standard and is capable of achieving a 0-60 times of only 2.9 seconds.While numbers were originally planned to reach 350 units produced only 186 cars were ever built as the factory had to make way for the new Aventador.The example we are offering is finished in Matt White over Black, and has only travelled 250 miles from new. A rare opportunity to own the ultimate Murcielago.
