• Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 JB-R

The German aftermarket tuning firm JB Design has just come out with a modified Lamborghini Murcielgo LP 640 that takes the ridiculousness of the Italian super car and pushes it well into the realm of insanity. The carbon fiber bodywork is only the beginning of what the tuners at JB Design can do, for around $41,000 they will upgrade the 640 HP V12 to the tune of 710 HP with their Stage 1 program. However this particular model goes even further, sending a total of 750 HP through the Lamorghini’s all wheel drive system. The added bonus to the engine package is that the LP 640 can now hit a 229 MPH top speed.

Ensuring exclusivity the highly modified Murcielaago is painted in a custom shade called Blood to Black Diamond that is owned by JB and is being limited to only 911 liters. That means you will have to suck up pretty hard to the boss at JB for a few quarts if you want to try and recreate this at home. The car designers make use of lightweight carbon fiber both inside and out. The hood is replaced with the space age wavy stuff as well as a more aggressive aero package. The front wing features a Formula One type center section and a pair of upward flanks on either side. Everything about this car is about the extreme, event the air intakes in the front bumper have a pair of black carbon fiber frames that act as air ducts forcing in more air at speed. Out back there is an over sized carbon fiber wing that wears the shops official JBR logo on the side.

The interior is equally as over the top as the outside making fine use of carbon fiber. Every surface is either covered in fine Italian leather or color complimenting dark red Ultrasuede. Every panel that would be made out of plastic on an ordinary car is made from large blocks of carbon fiber. The JBR is finished by a set of three piece Schmidt Revolution aluminum alloy wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter. The bright polished rims set off the car’s dark tinted windows and blood red paint perfectly, making this a car fit for the devil. The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 JBR is certainly not a bad way to spend half a million Euro.
