Bologna-based sports car maker; Lamborghini has released the more powerful and lighter Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. As the name suggests, this latest Murcielago features a 670HP 60 degrees, longitudinally mounted 6.5 litre V12 power plant (dry sump lubrication) with 660Nm of torque that is able to catapult the “bull” to the 100 km/h mark in 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 342 km/h. The power plant with 12 cylinders, 48 valves and 8,000 eagerly awaiting revs is coupled with a 6 speed manual transmission.
Power is transmitted to all four wheel via Lamborghini’s permanent all wheel drive system to ensure effective traction and subsequently, excellent handling. The Murcielago is fitted with a double wishbone suspension system all round, with a lifting system that enables the front end of the car to be raised by 45 mm to ease garage entries and so on. Stopping power is provided by Carbon Ceramic (CCB) brakes with ABS.
These high performance brakes are nestled behind exclusive “Ares” alloy-forged wheels, bearing the exclusive five twin-spoke design and wrapped with high-grip Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The Italian sports car maker has also added a new exhaust system that, apart from the obvious help in terms of performance, it also offers a beautiful acoustic experience.
On the inside, Alcantara and carbon fiber make up most of the interior which is finished in, among others; light weight bucket seats as well as light weight cockpit and roof lining. Offered in a number of body colours including; Giallo Orion, Arancio Atlas, Bianco Isis, Grigio Telesto and Nero Aldebaran (with matt white and matt black offered as an option), the exterior is treated to a slightly modified front end with a matt black finish as well as slightly larger air intakes. The lower end of the side features air scoops for the oil cooler which are also finished in matt black.
The rear end is mostly taken up by a single flat and extremely wide exhaust tailpipe, a two-level diffuser system finished entirely in carbon fiber and a transparent engine cover. A larger, fixed carbon fiber wing mounted on two carbon-fiber brackets which help offer better aerodynamic grip at high speeds is also available as an option. Overall, the light weight construction utilized on the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce accounts for 100 kilograms in terms weight savings, over Murciélago LP 640.
