Styled by Luc Donckerwalke, the Lamborghini head of design at the time, the Lamborghini Murciélago was built between 2001 and 2010. Successor to the Diablo and the flagship of the Lamborghini’s lineup, the Murciélago was introduced as a coupé in 2001. It was Lamborghini’s first new design in eleven years and was also the brand’s first new model under the ownership of German parent company Audi.
The First-generation Murciélagos, produced between 2001 and 2006, were powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company’s beginnings in the 1960s. The V12 engine produced 572 hp and powered the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. With an angular design and exceptionally low body, the car sits just under 4 feet above ground. Scissor doors were carried over from earlier models, continuing the extreme looks Lamborghinis are so well known for.
Presented in the rare colour combination of black with red interior, this left hand drive example comes with the favorable manual gearbox. With 54,900km on the odometer, the car is described as being in very good condition throughout. Complete with a full LP 640 body and with the upgraded LP 640 exhaust, the note of the V12 engine is widely regarded to be the best of any of the modern-day supercars. Combining the simplistic yet aggressive Lamborghini looks with the build-quality of the recently adopted Audi parent-company, the Murcielago is fast becoming a highly collectable car.
