Lamborghini no longer produces Murcielagos, so it was a bit surprising to see a Japanese tuning company make headlines for dressing one up. Make no mistake about it, if you’re carrying this set-up, you’re more than welcome to occupy our time.
Coming from the folks over at LB Performance is this military-themed program called "T-02" for the once-mighty Italian supercar. In keeping with the imposing look for the Murcielago, LB Performance decked the exotic with a body kit that comes with a slew of new components. There’s a new front bumper spoiler and a bumper type II. There’s a new front diffuser type II, side skirts and side diffusers.
Over at the back, the Japanese tuner installed a new carbon fiber wing an optional diffuser. Rounding the program of are four 20-inch LB forged wheels that have been custom-finished to mesh well with the military-inspired look of the Murcielago, a carbon fiber eyeliner and entrance mall, side military decals, and last but certainly not least, an LB original valve exhaust system.
If you followed us in the past few months, you have likely noticed that when it comes about cars, gold has become the new black. With this in mind, SR Auto Group has designed a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV.
SR Auto Group teamed up with PUR Wheels and equipped the supercar with a set of Monaco Gold wheels, which are sized 19 inches up front and 20 inches at the rear. Even better, this particular Aventador features the first set of Monaco Gold PUR 8IGHT’s ever produced.
You have to admit; the gold fits the wheels perfectly and works in perfect harmony with the car’s white exterior paint and numerous carbon fiber elements.
Under the hood, the Murcielago keeps its usual 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 670 horsepower. The Super Veloce hits 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and can hit a top speed of 212 mph, so we have no issue with SR Auto Group not touching the engine.
Our favorite YouTube user has just shot another incredible video: Valentino Balboni behind the wheel of a matte blue Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Superveloce at Monza. We’re not talking about a genuine SV model, but a first generation Murcielago with a full conversion. The car is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, a Tubi Style exhaust system, and a small rear wing.
This video includes multiple start ups, revs, accelerations on the track, and a few launches. You will also be able to enjoy incredible engine sound, so don’t forget to turn up your volume!
As a reminder, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 670 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and can hit an incredible top speed of 212 mph.
You can never get tired of somebody who does his job better than most people. In this particular case, Nino Batista has made a habit of creating photo-shoots that highlight his skills as a photographer, but also puts his subjects in an impressive light.
This photo-shoot features such subjects as the Lamborghini Murcielago and sexy hottie Kasie Wyland. The exotic Murcielago is actually owned by a customer who had his exotic customized by Autodynamica Performance.
The combination of the tall and long-legged brunette with yellow Italian supercar is something that’s just too good to pass up. To his credit, Batista managed to even make the ratio of hotness between the girl and the supercar balance out in the photos.
Some cases, you can’t take your eyes off of the car. Other cases, it’s the girl. In this instance, you can’t take your eyes off of both. That’s a credit to the man taking the pictures.
This photo spread is all about two things. Whether your preference is on the black Lamborghini Murcielago LP-640 or the sassy model Veronica Popa, what we do know is that you can’t go wrong with either.
Victora Popa, for her part, isn’t exactly a newbie when it comes to posing beside some of the finest exotics in the land. She’s done previous work on a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Porsche 911 so it’s easy to see why she seems so at ease beside the equally smoking hot raging bull.
The stunning dark-haired beauty is not one to be missed, especially when captured behind the lens of Rattanchandanj. You put all these elements together in one photo shoot and the results certainly speak for themselves.
There’s one time each year when no grown man worries about walking around wearing or driving something pink and that is during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Even in the NFL, grown men are beating the hell out of each other rocking pink gloves, socks, or other random pink things.
Well, the equivalent of strapping in a pink mouthpiece in the automotive industry is tossing a coat of pink on your car. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, TopSpeed is checking out all of the pink cars we have seen in recent years and laying them out for you, top-10 style.
In this contest, we need to look into the dedication of the pink coloring (real or wrap), the overall car coolness factor, and, of course, its raw power. Fortunately for us, driving a pink supercar is nothing out of the ordinary, so we have tons of entrants to choose from. If we skipped one of your favorites, let us know in the comments section.
Click past the jump to start our top-10 countdown to the best pink car of 2012.
A standard Lamborghini Murcielago SV is powered by a 670 HP V12 engine, making it the most powerful Murcielago ever built. That being said, there are tuners out there that feel as though it can do much better. One of these tuners is Covert Tuning Dynamics who have unveiled the LP2000-2 SVTT tuning package, also known as "The Stig."
As its name suggests, the LP2000-2 SV has increased the V12’s output from the standard 670 HP to an impressive 2,000 HP. While the tuner didn’t reveal how this amazing increase was obtained, the TT in the title makes us think that a pair of twin-turbos are the culprit. The car is also 550 lbs lighter than the standard SV, which, along with the power increase, should make for amazing performance numbers from this monster.
We would have gone for a sleek and sexy black exterior, other than the purity of a white finish, but other than that, all we can say is WOW!
Hit the jump for a video of the Lamborghini LP2000-2 SVTT.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 not only costs a medium-sized fortune, it also pumps 631 ponies from its 6.5-liter V-12 engine. That really should give you the confidence to not need to race anyone, as you would beat three-quarters of the cars on the road anyhow, especially a compact import econobox.
So when a “Toyota-type passenger car” pulls along side your $400K+ car and starts revving his little 4- or 6-banger, you should just look, smile, and carry on as normal. Apparently, a Michigan man didn’t get this memo, as he chose to allegedly fly down the highway with said Toyota-type car trailing – you do the math; sounds like a race to us – and proceeded to wreck his beautiful Murcielago.
This wasn’t just some little “oopsy” fender bender either. He put his pricey Lambo straight into a line of trees at a very high speed. On top of that, the car then turned into a very expensive ball of flames, leaving the Lambo a charred and melted mess. Fortunately, the driver got out of the car safely and only suffered a bump on the head and a huge bump in his wallet.
The only thing that comes to our mind is “Why?” Why on earth would you put so much effort into racing a freaking Toyota passenger car that you careen off of the road and slam your $400K+ car into the treeline? Hopefully this guy takes two lessons from this ordeal:
No. 1: Street racing is for tool bags that are attempting to compensate for something.
No. 2: Don’t race your $400K car against a Toyota... It’s bad Karma (Fiery Fisker pun intended).
No matter what kind of car someone drives, they always want something that is faster and better. The good ol’ Murcielago was the car to own when it first debuted, but then the Lamborghini Aventador appeared and many forgot about the Murcielago, unless you just so happen to own one. Fear not, Murcielago owners, EVS Motors is here to put some more pep in your step with a new tuning package that reinvents the look of your supercar. It can’t transform it into an Aventador, but customers can still take a step up from the standard model.
This bright yellow Murcielago belongs to a chap in Houston who wanted to make his standard Murcielago look like the more powerful SuperVeloce version. This was achieved with a new front bumper, new side skirts, a new rear bumper with large diffuser, and a new rear wing. This impressive package is completed by a new set of gloss black ADV5.0 Deep Concave wheels, sized 19" up front and 20" at the rear, offered by ADV.1 Wheels. The paint job was done by Royal Collision who did a very nice combination of yellow and black.
The Italian Stampede sounds as if it is a horrific running of wild bulls that includes lots of carnage and body parts. Well, in reality, it is a wonderful collection of various Italian supercars “racing” from Los Angeles to Monterey, California. Why Monterey? Well, that just so happens to be where the Concorso Italiano is being held.
This year, there is a special entrant leading the pack and that is a 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago wrapped in matte pink from front to rear and top to bottom. So why in the world is this Lamborghini all in pink? Well, the Lamborghini Club America is holding a Gala on Saturday to help support breast cancer awareness and this car is to help draw attention to both the Gala and the seriousness of breast cancer awareness.
We spoke with Andrew Romanowski, the President of the Lamborghini Club America and owner of this wrapped Lambo, and he let us know that it was not only the Lamborghini Club America involved in this great benefit, but Al & Ed’s Autosound and Protective Film Solutions also had a large hand in making this car a possibility.
While we had him on the phone, Andrew let us in on a little more info about the car. It is a 2006 model with an aftermarket exhaust system. We didn’t get into power numbers, as he was at the Concorso Italiano and we didn’t want to keep him from the droves of folks asking about this fantastic car and cause, but we assume this system would add about 10 to 15 extra ponies to its already stout 6.2-liter V-12 engine that pumps out 580 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 479 pound-feet of torque at 5,400 rpm.
Hats off to the folks at Lamborghini Club America, Al & Ed’s, and Protective Film Solutions for creating such an awesome car and supporting a great cause. You can see a video of the wrap being put on after the jump.
