As the first all-new Lamborghini built under the tutelage of parent company Audi, the Murciélago was a huge step forward for the then-fledgling Italian supercar manufacturer. Finally able to compete on a level playing field with Ferrari and Porsche, the Murciélago showed that Lamborghini could produce cars that combined incredible performance and visual panache with the reliability its customers expected.
Lamborghini released the first major update to the Murciélago at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the Murciélago LP640-4, for its output of 640 horsepower with four-wheel drive, the LP640 brought a welcome boost in performance to the already fast Murciélago. To the casual observer, the LP640 was largely the same as its predecessor both inside and out, but the beauty was in the details.
The car received new front and rear bumpers along with restyled taillights, with the largest visual identifier being its massive singular central-mounted exhaust outlet. Similar to the first generation Murciélago and other contemporary supercars like the Ferrari 599 GTB, the majority of the Murciélago LP640s produced were fitted with paddle-shift transmissions, while only a handful of clients opted for the “standard” six-speed manual option.
The straight translation of Murciélago in Spanish means ‘a bat’. However the car’s name followed Lamborghini’s ‘Bull’ theme and it belonged to a rather special bull that was so brave that the matador chose to spare its life. Following this trend the LP640 is a beast of a car. It matches the loud and ferocious exhaust note of its Lamborghini predecessors with a sense of precision and stability instilled by the new German manufacturers.
The LP640 we are proud to offer today comes in a striking black on black combination with black wheels to match. The car was first delivered to Lamborghini Stockholm, where it resided before being offered by Lamborghini Berlin 11.09.2008. With just 26,800 kilometers on the odometer, this car is described as being in very good condition all round. Needless to say, it will surely become one of the most collectable modern Lamborghinis being the start of a revolutionary movement from the mighty Audi-Lamborghini combination.
Der LP640 kommt in einer fantastischen Schwarz auf Schwarz Kombination mit passenden schwarzen Reifen. Das Auto wurde zuerst zu Lamborghini Stockholm ausgeliefert, wo es verweilte bis es durch Lamborghini Berlin am 11.09.2008 übernommen wurde.
Mit nur 26.800 gefahrenen km, ist dieses Auto in einem guten Gesamtzustand. Es wird sicher eines der meisten sammelbaren modernen Lamborghinis werden, die der Beginn einer revolutionären Bewegung der mächtigen Audi-Lamborghini Kombination sind.
