When Lamborghini launched the Murchielago model in 2001 to 2009 it was the replacement to the then World beating ‘Diablo’. This new V12 monster was the new flagship car to beat off rivals from Ferrari, Aston Martin and others. Our thanks to our friends at Wikipedia for additional information on this car.. First a little about the car itself:
The car was first available in North America for the year 2002, and was the manufacturer’s first new design in eleven years, the car was also the Italian brand’s first new model under the ownership of German parent company Audi, which is also owned by Volkswagen. The Murciélago is designed by Peruvian-born Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini’s head of design from 1998 to 2005.
A roadster variant was introduced in 2003, followed by the more powerful and updated LP 640 coupé and roadster and a limited edition LP 650–4 Roadster. The final variation to wear the Murciélago nameplate was the LP 670–4 SuperVeloce, powered by the largest and final evolution of the original Lamborghini V12 engine. Production of the Murciélago ended on 5 November 2010, with a total production run of 4,099 cars. Its successor, the Aventador, was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show which has also become a huge success culminating with the ‘SVJ’ hyper sports model.
