When Lamborghini decides to build a car like the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, you donâ€™t ask questions, you just say thank you and quietly pick your jaw up off the floor.
Lamborghini themselves even describe this car as â€œexceptionally puristâ€, and I canâ€™t find any reason to disagree. The 670 indicates a horsepower jump from the already potent LP 640 to 670 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque out of the 6.5L V12. Extra power wasnâ€™t the only thing Lamborghini managed to squeeze out of the package though, as more than 220 lbs of weight savings have occurred, leaving the car with a 0-62 time of just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 212 mph. However, if you opt for the larger â€œAeropack Wingâ€, the added downforce will limit you to only 209 mph.
Minor, yet still stunning details include a new engine cover with three hexagonal, transparent polymer plates supported by a carbon fiber framework, and an interior that is upholstered entirely in Alcantara with stitching that matches the exterior color of the car. Finally, the fighter pilot theme is carried over from the Reventon, with landing strip accents on the seats and floor panels.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce isnâ€™t a car that anyone needs, but when it takes an entire breath of air to say the very large and very Italian name, and each word sounds faster than the next, you know itâ€™s a car that almost everyone is going to want.
