• Lamborghini commemorates the Murcielago with parade of V12 cars

As a fitting tribute to one of its most successful models, Lamborghini commemorated the Murcielago’s end of production with a special exhibition and parade along the streets of its hometown in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

First built in 2001, the Murcielago enjoyed tremendous success from Lamborghini fans and supercar aficionados, spawning a number of different variations including the 2008 LP640 Roadster Versace Edition, the 2009 LP650-4 Roadster, and the 2009 LP670-4 SuperVeloce. After nine years in production, Lamborghini officially ended the supercar’s production on May 11, 2010.

To celebrate the occasion, Lamborghini rolled out a lot of its iconic V12 models for the exhibition and parade. Among the cars participating in the event included some of Lamborghini’s finest like the 350GT, the Miura, the Countach, and the Diablo, all of which served as escorts to the Murcielago SuperVeloce that went out of Lamborghini’s factory and out into the streets of Sant’Agata for its ceremonial “last ride”.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Isn’t this old news? There have been a lot of Gallardos and just Lambos in general, that burned to the ground. The fact that they say, there have been no accidents reported is kind of weird. Did they blame all the other fires on user error?

The rear-drive Balboni is the first rear-drive Lambo in years and the lightweight Superleggera (still AWD) offers the usual supercar less-is-more recipe for speed.

Beautiful raging bulls, strong yet smooth performance and fantastically-curvy cum rakish designs - through the essence these cars portrays. A fitting tribute not only to Murcielago, but also to Diablo, Countach, Miura and 350GT
