With a 640 horsepower 6.2-liter V12 mated to a 6-speed overdrive-enabled manual transmission, AWD and 479 lb.-ft of torque, the 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago is an all-performance, all-the-time machine with an ultra-sleek profile and gorgeous handcrafted interior. The Murcielago, big brother to the Lamborghini Gallardo, is offered as a two door Coupe featuring an enhanced suspension system compared to the last iteration, as well as butterfly doors, plenty of interior legroom, diamond-pattern hand stitched leather appointments, ABS brakes, traction control and lumbar seats.Read more Read less
Lamborghini upped the ante with their 2007 Murcielago lineup by boring out the 2006's 6.2L V12 powerplant. The engine now displaces 6.5L, with power correspondingly increasing to 632 horsepower. The LP640 is now one of the fastest production cars ever built, and exterior styling has been tweaked for improved aerodynamics. The suspension system has also been revised to cope with the huge amounts of power being transferred from the engine to the wheels, as have the brakes and transmission. The Murcielago's interior has been massaged as well, with sturdier seats and a superior radio.
Astronomical acceleration; mid-engine handling; coupe and convertible flavors.
For those who want an iconic two-seater that accelerates like a jet, the 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is on the short list. Few cars can boast such impressive numbers (12 cylinders, 0-60 times in the low 3s, a price tag over $300,000), and even fewer can deliver such a stirring driving experience. The exhaust note alone is practically worth the price of admission.
