Lamborghini Murcielago is one super fast Italian
TODAY'S blog post is of a special supercar, the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV, otherwise known as the SuperVeloce, which stands for "super fast" in Italian.
The LP670-4 SV is the lightest, fastest and most powerful Lamborghini Murcielago ever, thanks to its huge 6.5-litre, 48 valve 12-cylinder engine which can produce up to 493 kilowatts (661 horsepower) at 8000rpm and 660 Newton metres of torque (487 pound-feet of torque) at 6500rpm.
Also, because it has been stripped of weight, it is now 100 kilograms lighter than the standard LP640 by adding a lighter exhaust system, getting rid of the radio and by adding more carbon fibre throughout the car.
Connected to the engine is a six-speed automated manual transmission, with manual shifting paddles behind the steering wheel, which then sends all the power to all four wheels, in classic Lamborghini fashion.
This raging bull also has a kerb weight of 1565 kilograms. In the name of this Lambo, the LP stands for Longitudinale Posteriore, which is the engine position, the 670 stands for the PS (German for horsepower) and the 4 represents the four-wheel drive.
This astonishing supercar is able to launch from 0-100kmh in just 3.2 seconds, and it will keep accelerating until it reaches its top speed of 341 kilometres per hour (212 miles per hour).
The LP670-4 SV was the last ever Murcielago that was in production, and they only produced 350 examples.
This particular model featured above was spotted at Lamborghini of Las Vegas which is located at 7770 South Dean Martin Drive in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It is also the 329th LP670-4 Super Veloce produced.
Some other features that this Lamborghini is equipped includes 18x9.7 inch front and 18x13 inch rear alloy wheels wrapped in performance tyres, variable intermittent wipers, black inserts specially for the SV, a Bianco Canopus paint scheme which takes about 250 hours to apply, a large SV rear spoiler for added downforce, a limited slip rear differential, double-wishbone front and rear suspension, four-wheel ABS as well as traction control, electronic brakeforce distribution, a black alcantara interior with sport front seats, white SV badges on the interior and much more.
Richard Hammond described the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV as one of the all time supercar greats, and you can currently buy one of these magnificent pieces of engineering and passion for about $550,000-$600,000.
