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). Read the rest of this entry »
