Luxury in every sense of the word, the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago may empty your pocket but it will turn a lot of heads. With three trims to choose from, the Coupe, Roadster or SuperVeloce, they all come with a 6.5-liter V12 engine knockout out 640 hp in this AWD speedster. Fuel economy is EPA-estimated at 8 mpg city/13 mpg highway for the two-passenger coupe. Rollover protection, tire pressure monitoring and fog lights are just a few of the standard safety features with an option to add a review camera. Other features include a touch screen monitor with iPod and Bluetooth capabilities.Read more Read less
This year Lamborghini has expanded the model range of its priciest Murcielago supercar with two special models, to be produced in very limited numbers. The new Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is a more powerful, lighter and faster version that boasts an improved top speed of about 212 mph; and the LP 650-4 Roadster is a special open-air version of the Murcielago with more power plus a special gray and Grigio Telesto (bright orange) paint scheme and logo on the exterior, plus orange brake calipers and a transparent engine cover. Only 350 of the SuperVeloce models will be made worldwide, while only 50 of the LP 650-4 Roadsters will be offered, in addition to the rest of the Murcielago lineup, which carries over to 2010 unchanged.
Exotic styling; supercar recognition turns heads anywhere; uncomparable driving character; quicker and faster than nearly any other vehicle on the road
With a pricetag that can approach the half-million mark, once further customized or specially fitted, the Murcielago is a true exotic, offered in rare enough numbers to make spotting one a rare treat, even in moneyed areas. Meanwhile, Murcielago Roadsters are still among the hottest exotics to be seen cruising Rodeo Drive or Miami's South Beach. Those with a racing bug will likely gravitate to the lighter, faster LP670-4 SuperVeloce that's new this year, offering some improved numbers that might make a difference at the track--and give some added bragging rights beyond Murcielago ownership itself. All this said, the Murcielago offers a remarkably civil driving experience, but visibility is very difficult because of its low driving position and bodywork that favors fashion and high-speed aerodynamics over day-to-day functionality. What matters ultimately to most buyers won't have anything to do with practicality--rather the Murcielago's exclusivity, and the fact that it's one of the world's fastest sports cars.
