Even though the Murciélago gave way to its successor, the Aventador a few years earlier now, the V12 powered italian supercar is still one of the most beautiful sports cars you can find on the roads. It is powered by a V12 engine which produces 670 PS (493 kW; 661 hp) at 8000 rpm and 660 N·m (490 lbf·ft) of torque at 6500 rpm, thanks to revised valve timing and upgraded intake system. This is enough for the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670–4 SV to achieve a sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 2.9 seconds. The vehicle will go on to 200 km/h (120 mph) in 7.4 seconds. As tested by Car and Driver magazine, confirming the respectable numbers the public was expecting with this beast.
Lamborghini claims a top speed of 341 km/h (212 mph) when the car is fitted with an optional smaller spoiler, or 336 km/h (209 mph) with the standard Aeropack wing. The Lamborghini Murcielago SV was built in 186 units – a smaller than expected number, since the original production plan of the ultimate Murciélago was limited to 350 cars – cut short by the need to attain room for the successive Lamborghini Aventador production requirements there.
The Lamborghini Murciélago SV we have here is further updated with a set of HRE Performance wheels that grace its exterior. These HRE S107 wheels are a perfect, lightweight and remarkable addition for this vehicle, as they give a contemporary touch to the somewhat aging supercar overall.
