Driving has never been sexier. Bold, stylish and powerful,
the new Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster boasts
extraordinary engineering and design innovations.
Its new name, Murciélago LP640, refers to its engine
position – longitudinale posteriore – and to
its power, 640 hp. In addition to restyling the engine,
gearbox, suspensions, exhaust system, brakes and electronics,
designers and engineers have reworked the interior and
exterior design, resulting in a hot new Murciélago
LP640 – the fastest and most extreme sports car in
its class. In their reinterpretation of the Murciélago
LP640, the designers at the Lamborghini Style Centre have
remained true to the traditional Lamborghini principles
of purism, sport and function.
The Italian superstar now appears
as even more of a driving force, with its distinctive new
front and rear bumpers. The exhaust system terminal has
been incorporated in the diffuser on the rear bumper. Also
new are the rear lights, which enhance the characteristic
features of the Murciélago
LP640, making it recognizable even at night. The design
of the sides is also noteworthy: While the area behind
the air intake on the right side is practically closed,
the left side features a vast aperture for cooling the
oil radiator. Together with the aerodynamically defined
front and rear, this proves yet again that the shape of
a Lamborghini is dictated by function.
A stylishly sculpted, irresistible dream machine, the Murciélago
LP640 Roadster simply must be driven.
