Usually when people drive a car like thePorsche Boxster S, they are very pleased with their form of transportation. Then there are those people that are never fully satisfied with what they have, the old "grass is always greener on the other side" scenario. The latter description fits the owner of this Porsche-turned-Lamborghini Murcielago . Yep, this guy overhauled his Porsche to turn it into a Murcielago. Maybe he missed his chance to own the Lamborghini once the last production model rolled off the line, but that still isn’t a reason to do this to a perfectly good Boxster.

Now, we really shouldn’t share this type of information for fear of someone else creating this type of sin, but this little project - complete with Lamborghini’s scissor doors - cost the owner $45,000. So if you want everyone to make fun of you and turn their nose up at your decision, go ahead and save up $45K and do this to your car.

Driving a Lamborghini Murcielago is sure to make everyone around you green with envy, but that’s not your problem. In fact, why not revel in the fact that you have a Lamborghini by making some small adjustments to make your charging bull that much better? In the latest tuning kit provided by Vitt Performance, this supercar gets given quite a treatment in the form of two different body kits.

The two body kits provided by the Japanese tuner include a new front bumper, two new side skirts, a new rear fender, and a new rear bumper. Customers can also receive a GT Wing made of carbon fiber, and a muffler cutter and a rear wing made from FRP for a few extra bucks. The options for this package come in the form of the materials used for the body kit. These accessories come in a choice of full carbon fiber or FRP (fiber reinforced plastic). The FRP is probably about six times the price of the carbon fiber, but you have to pay for extravagance.

A few months ago, there was a turquoise Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce that was clamped just outside the high-end mall Harrods in London. You might also recall a Koenigsegg CCXR joining the Lambo in getting clamped by local authorities for parking in a no-parking zone.

Well, that special-edition Al-Thani Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is back in the headlines, only this time, it’s in a lot worse condition from the last time we saw it with those bright yellow discs clamped on their wheels.

According to a recent report, the LP670-4 SuperVeloce was involved in a car accident with a BMW E60 M5 at Hyde Park in London. A witness who saw the crash said that the BMW lost control and hit the central reservation before bouncing off and slamming into the unfortunate Murcielago. Fortunately, no one was injured from the high-profile accident, although we’re quite certain that those two cars will merit some serious fixing with the distinct possibility that one or both may be beyond repairs at this point.

Very tough to see those vehicles, especially that special edition Lamborghini, get wasted just like that.

Let me tell you, when you foolishly decide to drive your cars way past the speed limit in Italy, this is one police car that you don’t want to be chasing you. Trust us, unless you have a rocket of a supercar in your hands, you’re not going to be able to last in a car chase.

It’s not often that we get to see a Lamborghini police car, although there are a number of them in police departments all over the world. This particular one, though, is a Gallardo LP560-4 , one of two Lamborghinis that were donated to the Italian police by the supercar maker. Moreover, this is the only one left of the two as the other one suffered a pretty serious car crash about a year ago.

So as you can see, the mere sight of the car draws either pained expressions of fear if it’s chasing you down the highway or wide-eyed glee if you get a chance to see it stretch its legs in a racetrack like Monza.

Fortunately, the ever reliable Marchettino was able to capture the Lambo super police car in action at the track doing what comes naturally to it: rocketing around the pit lane and the track while being joined by its supercar brethren.

It’s finally come to an end, the last Lamborghini Murcielago has rolled off the line. The legendary supercar has been around for nearly a decade and during that time, 4,099 examples were made at the company’s Sant’ Agata, Italy Factory.

The very last model, an LP 670-4 SV, is headed to Switzerland, a country that just loves fast vehicles. At 4,099 total vehicles produced, this is by far the most popular twelve-cylinder Lamborghini of all time, which just goes to show you the turnaround that the Lambo has made in recent years.

The car launched in 2001 and it was the first time that Italian design and passion were mixed with German technology and engineering. The car was light on its feet, made from carbon fiber, and it actually drove fairly well, unlike Lamborghini models of old.

We are expecting to see a new Lamborghini arrive within the next couple years to replace the old Murcielago but until then, we can remember this beauty as one of the vehicles that turned the company’s fortunes around.

The official trailer for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was recently filmed somewhere in Italy and it features just about the most awesome – an expensive – fake car chase we’ve ever seen.

To build cache for the brand, NFS decided to go all-out with the two vehicular protagonists, opting for two cars that are undoubtedly two of the most sought-after supercars this side of the solar system: the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and the Pagani Zonda Cinque .

The folks over at Teamspeed managed to scoop up photos of the filming of the trailer where the law enforcement decaled Murcielago giving chase to the Zonda Cinque along a sweeping mountains of Italy. And they even managed to commission a helicopter to aid the Murcielago in chasing the Zonda . Awesome.

There are also photos of the two supercars being prepared for the shoot similar to how celebrities are made-up before filming. Apparently, the Zonda Cinque that’s being chased by the Murcielago police supercar is actually a Zonda F underneath all that make-up. Why they specifically had to have a Zonda Cinque instead of a Zonda F, we don’t know.

But hey, either way works just fine for us.

Unicate may not be a familiar tuning firm, but their tuning package for the 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago will definitely put them on the map. The "Yeniceri Edition" Murcielago was given a distinct look to pay tribute to an elite fighting troop of soldiers from the Ottoman Empire that bear the same name. Apparently the mere mention of the name would "strike fear into the hearts of anyone that heard it." Serious stuff.

The fear and panic caused by the Yeniceri has translated into a bold and menacing package for the Murcielago, complete with a matte black exterior paint job, a set of 20" "ConcavTen" wheels with a chrome outer lip and a matte black inner lip, and a new exhaust system that has increased the engine’s output by 20 HP. Wheels for the supercar have been upgraded to 10.5x20 with a full 4 inch outer lip and 285/25 ZR 20 tires on the front and a massive 13.5x21 with a 6 inch outer lip and 375/25 ZR 21 on the rear. The vehicle has also been lowered by one inch to give off an even more fierce look.

JB Car Design is no stranger to turning an already beautiful supercar into something completely out of the ordinary. And the German tuners are at it again with their latest offering for the Lamborghini Murcielago , the Bat LP-640.

The performance and styling package added to this Murcielago is not something that you can take lightly; it costs €88,000, which is about $123,500, or the cost of an Audi R8 . Given the stratospheric price tag, you would hope that JB Car Design has something explosive with their new tuning kit. Fortunately, they more than delivered on that end.

The package is only limited to 75 units and JB Car Design made sure that it’s going to be worth every penny the customer pays for it. Designed to resemble the Reventon , the Bat LP-640’s package comes with a new contoured front bumper that features more side air intakes. There’s also carbon fiber headlight covers, a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, new side skirts, a carbon rear diffuser, LED lights on the taillights, a set of three-piece 20” alloy wheels, a carbon fiber rear wing spoiler, and similar to the front bumper, a rear bumper with side air outlets.

As if a Lamborghini Murcielago needed any more fine tuning, German tuning firm DMC released new goodies that will allow you to lessen the weight of the supercar. And you know what; a lighter Murcielago equates to a faster one too.

The new carbon fiber wings styling kit isn’t just an accessory to make your Murcielago more eye-catching. On its own, the car can already do that. Instead, these carbon fiber scoops - called Bat Wings - are exchanged with the OEM wings of the supercar, to help it get a reduction in weight while at the same time, accessorizing the Murcielago with sweet carbon fiber patterns.

DMC is also including a Grand Wing, an enormous carbon fiber spoiler that adds a more aggressive touch to the car.

Last, but certainly not least, is the carbon fiber engine cover, which first generation Murcielago owners might find appealing given that their cars don’t come with the glass bonnet that’s found in the later models. So, if you don’t have the glass, might as well scoop up the carbon fiber, yes?

The whole package is available at DMC where pricing is available upon request.

Defacing a perfectly beautiful supercar is a crime, even if the vandalism falls under what’s being called ‘artwork’ these days.

This Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 was given a full tuning program by Canadian-based tuning firm, SR Auto Group, with the use of Hamann aerodynamic parts, including side skirts and front lip, 20-inch Pur One Monoblock wheels, and a state-of-the-art sound system. Sounds awesome, right?

Well, it would’ve been if they didn’t deface the beautiful Lamborghini with some ill-conceived artwork. We’re all proponents of freedom of expression around here, but let’s face it, there’s noting inherently appealing about doodling and drawing what-have-you’s on a Murcielago LP640.

Some people might view this as an artistic interpretation of creativity. Unfortunately, we’re not one of those people. As far as we’re concerned,
this type of artwork should be best reserved on the back pages of a college notebook, not on a six-digit supercar like the Murcielago.

And those random puzzle pieces all over the car? Oh, dear Lord.
