1 of 22 for U.S. LP640 manual coupe. Original paint in excellent condition.
Regularly serviced at authorized Lamborghini dealers between 2007 and 2016.
The dramatic Lamborghini Murciélago was introduced as the scion to the enormously
successful Diablo as the company flagship V12 model in 2001 and becoming available
to the North American market in 2002.
The Murciélago was the first model introduced under the corporate ownership of parent
company Audi (Volkswagen Group) and was designed by Luc Donckerwolke whom also
penned final SE versions of the Diablo and served as Lamborghini’s chief designer from
1998 to 2005.
Production of the Murciélago ran until 2010 and featured the LP640 coupe and roadster,
limited edition LP650-4 Roadster and the LP-670-4 SuperVeloce with 4,099 examples built
in total until being replaced by the Aventador.
The Murciélago is an all-wheel drive car featuring a 6.2 liter normally aspirated V12, 48
valve engine with maximum power of 572BHP with performance of 0 to 62MPH
(100KMH) in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 205MPH (330KMH).
While Lamborghini may trace it’s V12 roots to the company’s very beginnings, the
engines themselves have evolved with modern technology as in the case with the
Murciélago’s high tech V12 fuel injected engine integrated with the differential with the
“Vicious Traction” (VT) system which transmits 70% of its power to the rear wheels and
30% to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
The Murciélago suspension utilizes race proven independent double wishbone design
layout while the body is mostly carbon fiber with steel roof and retaining the signature
aluminum scissor doors to maintain light weight.
The active aspects of the Murciélago feature an integrated rear wing and air intakes
atop the rear wheels which are electromechanically controlled and deploy automatically
in order to aide cooling to the massive engine and keep the car stable at high speeds.
The dramatic air intakes lift from the rest of the body creating a huge air intake
effectively aiding cooling and adding an aero foil to the car with a bit more drag.
The interior is a simple layout, nothing too over the top but a very modern update from
the Diablo with a comfortable design which envelopes driver and passenger in full
leather comfort in a very simple and clean look with all of the major controls and gated
shift lever integrated into the central console.
This Lamborghini Murciélago (#2285) features the highly desirable 6-speed manual
transmission, one of only twenty-two LP640 manual coupe for the U.S. The Nero paint
is completely original and interior is in excellent condition. The car has been regularly
serviced by Lamborghini dealers from 2007 to 2016.
Please note the car currently has a modified sport exhaust and original exhaust is with

We love interesting provenance, very low production, very low mileage, very special and often
