Powering the LP640 is a huge 6.5L, 48-valve DOHC dry-sump V12 engine that makes 640 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. The standard LP640 can get to 60 mph in less than 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 200 mph. The Murcielago puts all of that power and torque to the pavement with the help of a permanent 4-wheel drive system, employing a viscous clutch coupling and electronic controls that can vary the amount sent to the front or rear. In normal driving, 70 percent is sent to the back.
2016,The Murcielago uses electronically controlled dampers at all four wheels, with a geometry that's designed to prevent brake dive and squat. The anti-lock brake system employed in the Murcielago line, with discs all around including big 15-inchers in front, is also far more robust than might be found in most other vehicles. Z-rated performance rubber provides the goods for both high-speed use and normal driving, but optional Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires are oriented for track driving.
2016,At about 180 inches long, the Murcielago is about the same length as a compact sedan like the Volkswagen Jetta; but at 81 inches wide, the Lamborghini is much wider than your typical car.
2016,Simply getting in and out of the Murcielago is different than almost any other new car; special scissor-style doors open up, so body stiffness is maintained and weight is preserved.
2016,Inside, the Murcielago has sport seats with integrated head restraints and special stitched leather, which also used on the door and the roof panels. The instrument panel, while very simple and race-car like in some respects, includes a Kenwood sound system with 6.5-inch monitor and DVD/MP3 compatibility. A navigation system is also available.
2016,The LP640 Roadster sheds the LP640's solid roof for a cloth soft top that isn't quite up to four-season duty, or for going much faster than freeway speeds in the up position, but it should do just fine in an unexpected rainstorm. A removable hard top roof is also offered.
2016,Then there is the LP670-4 SuperVeloce, a special track-tuned model that sheds more than 200 pounds of weight and gets an even more powerful 670-hp version of the same engine, bringing top speed to 212 mph and 0-60 mph in less than 3.2 seconds. The front end of the SuperVeloce also has a different look. Two different rear spoilers are offered, depending on intended use, with a larger Aeropack Wing providing more stabilizing downforce but lowering top speed slightly (to 209 mph).
2016,In any of the Murcielago models, Lamborghini's Ad Personam customization program allows customers to customize their Murcielago to no end--all for a price, of course--with everything from special paint, to custom trim materials to special interior fittings.
