Lamborghini is every exotic car enthusiast’s dream car. Sometimes even magazine and automotive editors are in love with this amazing automobile.
Excellent Consumer Reviews
The Lamborghini Murcielago has consistently ranked extremely well in consumer reviews and automotive publications. US News and World Report has just ranked the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago number 1 of 7 Exotic Supercars. Their ranking was compiled by analyzing test drives and reviews of the Lamborghini Murcielago and includes any safety and reliability records. Edmunds explains that the Murcielago is “the flagship of one of the most outrageous car manufacturers in history”. Car and Driver writes: “From mind-bending speed and the guttural shriek of the V-12 to the low-slung, sharply creased sheetmetal and the butt-on-the-ground seating position, the Murcie is the archetypal Italian exotic. It always draws a crowd, and it has the performance to warrant the attention.”
Where does the name come from?
Murcielago is the Spanish name for “bat”, but the name is actually taken from a Spanish fighting bull. This Spanish fighting bull withstood more than 28 sword stabs and his life was spared because of his passion and spirit.
True to Lamborghini form, the car combines radical styling and aggressive performance. The Murcielago packs a whopping 631 horsepower V12 powerplant (The Super Veloce has 661 hp) and reaches 0-60 in a mere 3.3 seconds (2.8 for the Super Veloce). The top speed is approximately 211 MPH (213 MPH for the Super Veloce).
Other Exotic Supercar Options
If you’re not entirely sold on the Lamborghini Murcielago, but you’re still looking for exotic cars for sale you should check out the Ferrari 458 Italia, which is the replacement for the Ferrari F430. The Ferrari 458 Italia features a new 4.5 liter V8 engine 570 hp and jets from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds with a top-speed of 202 mph (just shy of the Murcielago’s 211 mph top speed).
How to Get One
If you can’t afford a new Lamborghini Murcielago, you can always find a great deal by buying a used or pre-owned model. If you still cannot afford a Murcielago, the next best Lamborghini would be a Diablo. The Lamborghini Countach is much more rare and its short supply won’t make it much cheaper than a Lamborghini Diablo. If you’re good with tools, you should think about building a replica. Beware that there are many scams in that market and you will have to do a lot of research to be sure that you’re buying from a legitimate company. Many kit car building veterans suggest you should calculate twice as much money as you initially estimated and 4 times as many hours to build your kit car.
The 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is available in two body styles, a coupe and a roadster. In 2009, Lamborghini introduced the Super Veloce. The Super Veloce’s name was first used on the 1995-1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV. The Super Veloce or “SV” typically signifies the end of a Lamborghini model production run. All-wheel drive is standard on all Lamborghini Murcielagos.
