Video: Ten minutes with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 running around Monza

There’s nothing like a good ten-minute video of one of our favorite supercars doing some laps around Monza to kick-off the new year on a rev-piercing note.

Courtesy of Marchettino, this video features a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 running around in it’s natural habitat: a race track free of speed limits, traffic lights, and radar guns. Free from everything that could inhibit its glorious power, the Murcielago lets loose around the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza in Italy, showcasing that ear-splitting power like only a Murcielago can. The sound that comes out of the pouncing Lamborghini supercar is music to our ears, one that we highly suggest you give a listen to as well.

We’re not going to see a whole lot more of these babies considering that Lamborghini has officially discontinued the model with a successor – the Aventador LP700-4 – already in the works. So consider this a swan song for one of our favorite supercar models of all time. It’s a good ten minutes with the Murcielago LP640 to kick-off 2011.

Turn up the speakers and enjoy the video!

That’s awesome! Murcielago is most historic line of Lamborghini. And i think Aventador LP700-4, its successor, which is debuted recently is well
accepted by the buyers. I haven’t read any bad comment about it. For sure sooner, it will surpass its predecessor.

to be honest, its just plain ugly! And I think this is exactly the difference of what I have need.

It’s a Lamborghini. If it didn’t have an oversized part on it, it would be a disappointment. Besides, the GT300 car has an even bigger one.

If you lowered the wing, would look better but all of its down-force function would be removed. That is right, all the low profile wings are just for looks. Unless it is as high as the roof-line, its not going to be functional.

guess that porsche is on test run also, but honestly i dont know what kind of porsche is that but i looks like a roaster one.

We get to understand that this racer machine, a take off from the 458 Italia built for Ferrari’s single-racing series, comes sporting a 4499cc V8 engine that returns 570 PS (562 hp / 419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. Specs suggest that this is coupled to a modified dual-clutch gearbox with ‘F1-Trac’ for any kind of track condition

Built with a race suspension that comprises solid aluminum bushings, stiffer springs, and single-rate dampers and Brembo CCM2 brakes, the car sports 19-inch wheels that run on Pirelli rubber. Extremely thin body panels, carbon fiber components and Lexan windows are being attributed to the reduced weight.

for sure a dyno can reach that speed because there are no resisting force. but they test it on track wind and other elements should be consider resisting force.

only 302kph? that’s weird. i though the LP640 can achieve a top speed of 320KPH? do you mean the porsche GT3 is more faster than this?

10 minutes with a Murcielago is like 10 minutes with a hot girl in a park... you never know when they have passed

I’m guessing this is as a driving lesson for the newly happy owner...

Yeahhh... I think at every purchase of a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, they should offer you as gift 10 sessions of 2 hours each on a cool circuit! Wouldn’t that be cool?

Lovely, I’m guessing any 250+ km/h car without limitation to 250 is great. But more important is to have where to drive it at these speeds, otherwise the amount you spend on it is useless.

not really, its actually depends on the model of the ferrari.. think of these 2010 LP640 vs 1998 Ferrari Maranello well of course the new one will gets the vote. get it? got it? good!...

Good sounds and amazing car but really poor driving skills....money doesn’t buy everything! smiley
