We know Christmas is still about one month away, but for those of you who want to have the gifts ready for the holiday, we have a very cool suggestion. This gift idea comes from Poland and we have to admit is one of the coolest yet.

We are talking about a special desk that features the front of a Lamborghini Murcielago . The desk developer says that it uses only original Italian pieces, but the fact we see no logo on the front of the car make us wonder if they are being honest or not.

All legitimacy aside, this orange desk could be the perfect gift for any car enthusiast out there, with, or without original parts. All you need is a total of $11,140, and the desk can be all yours. We’re wonder if this desk will help you finish your work as quickly as the Murcielago sprinted to 60 mph — about 3.4 seconds in its final production year.

They say that you only celebrate a 50th birthday once, so when it happens, you might as well make it as memorable as possible.

Italian automaker Lamborghini is in the middle of its 50th anniversary celebrations and since the start of the year, it’s celebrated it with the kind of extravagance befitting of its stature in the industry.

Recently, things took an interesting turn in the United Kingdom when the UK Lamborghini 50th Anniversary 50th Anniversary Tour officially opening its doors to the public.

Held at the Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire, over 50 Lamborghinis participated in the event with models ranging from the classic Countachs all the way to the current Aventador Roadsters . In between, there were Murcielagos , Diablos , Gallardos , and even the one-off Oakley Design Aventador LP760 Nasser Edition.

Needless to say, it was as close to a Lamborghini overdose as you could possibly get, and not surprisingly, Shmee150 was right in the middle of all the festivities with cameras in tow.

When it comes to cars, nothing breaks our hearts more than seeing a supercar go up in flames. So, imagine the depression in the room when we watched this video.

A trailer full of exotics - four of them, actually - all turned into scrap metal after a fire in a BMW eventually led to all four cars getting completely engulfed in a fiery blaze. According to news reports in Thailand, the cars were an unidentified BMW, a Lamborghini Murcielago , a Ferrari F430 and a Bentley Continental.

The cars were being towed on a trailer with the driver saying he was transferring them from a showroom in Bangkok to a gas station in the Si Sa Ket province on the Thai-Cambodia border, where an "unknown person" would be there to pick them up. Sounds like a shady transaction, huh?

But all that changed when all four exotics caught fire, not only destroying some fine supercars but also costing a total of 100 million baht, which is about $3.3 million based on current exchange rates.

This isn’t the first time a supercar has unexpectedly gone up in flames. Click past the jump to see previous occasions where an exotic met a rather untimely and fiery demise.

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.
