The dramatic Lamborghini Murcielago 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 serviced 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.
Murciélago was a continuation of the Lamborghini tradition of naming their cars after famous fighting bulls, Murciélago in particular was a bull which survived 24 sword strokes in a fight against Rafael “El Lagartijo” Molina Sanchez in 1879. The matador chose the spare of the life of Murciélago and thus began the famous line of Miura fighting bulls.
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 evolved with modern technology as in the case with the Murciélago’s high tech V12 fuel injected engine integrated with the differential with the “Vicscous 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 2008 Lamborghini Murciélago (#3281) is one of thirteen manual transmission LP640 Coupesimported into the U.S. And, one of onedone in Verde Ithica (the legendary Lamborghini green) over Nero Perseus & Verde Ulysses Interiortogether with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The car has factory 3-piece luggage kit, all original keys, books, tools, and packaging. It is about as close to new as a pre-owned car can possibly be. All this and it is signed by none other than the legendary Valentino Balboni.
