Speed, lightness, and rarity

Super Veloce Racing (SVR), a racing car and supercar specialist based out of the U.K., is putting this extremely yellow Murcielago SV Coupe up for sale. Not only is it striking to look at and mind-bending to drive, but this particular example is also quite rare, bearing chassis number 022 of a total 186 Murcielago SV models constructed. It’s also one of only 28 built in the right-hand drive configuration. According to SVR’s website, pricing is set at 325,500 pounds, or $434,310 at current exchange rates (09/12/2016). SVR is accepting applications for purchase now.

First things first – the Murcielago LP 670-4 is powered by a mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine producing roughly 670 horsepower – 30 ponies more than the base Murcielago. Torque is rated at 487 pound-feet. Cog swaps are handled by a six-speed automatic transmission, while a high-performance AWD system makes traction. Properly motivated, this Raging Bull can hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 200 mph.

And of course, being an SV, this thing is studded with aerodynamic enhancements from nose to tail. There’s a new fascia, bigger intakes, and tons of vents. This particular example was fitted with the carbon fiber Aeropack Wing, which takes a few mph off the top speed, but also adds lots of extra downforce.

It’s also got carbon brakes, a carbon fiber diffuser, glossy black alloy wheels, a carbon fiber engine cover, yellow brakes calipers, and black SV graphics laid over a Giallo yellow paint job. Inside, there’s carbon fiber trim, black Alcantara upholstery, and yellow contrast stitching.

There are 15,646 miles on the odometer, and all vehicle maintenance was performed at official Lamborghini Service Centers.

Why it Matters

Rare 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago SV up for Sale
- image 687951

When it was first released, the Murcielago SV was fastest model Lamborghini had ever released, paring low weight and high output to make something even more potent on the track. It was the third Lambo to ever receive the SV designation, following the Miura and Diablo.

The Italian automaker originally planned on building around 350 of these things, but ended up making just 186 after the model was canned in preparation for the Aventador. Combined with relatively low mileage, the optional Aeropack Wing, and the extremely rare right-hand drive cabin, this thing certainly looks quite enticing.

And when it comes to selling Raging Bulls, Super Veloce Racing seems to know its stuff. Not only does SVR sell supercars and race cars, it also services them, and it’s run by folks like Lee Cunningham, an ex-Lamborghini Works Driver, and Alan Robb, an ex-Lamborghini Aftersales Manager.

Super Veloce Racing (SVR) is now accepting applications for one of the rarest Lamborghinis in existence from its Buckinghamshire Showroom. One of only 28 in right-hand drive and 186 built worldwide, the Murcielago LP670-4 SV is offered by SVR, established and operated by ex-Lamborghini Aftersales Manager Alan Robb and ex-Lamborghini Works Driver Lee Cunningham, alongside business partner, Ben Adnett.

Just the third Lamborghini to adorn the famous Super Veloce moniker after the Miura SV and Diablo SV, this track-orientated version of the Murcielago utilises Lamborghini’s iconic first-generation 6.5-litre V12 powerplant - the last Lamborghini model to do so - to produce 661bhp with a six-speed semi-automatic, E-gear transmission, making the SuperVeloce variant of the Murcielago the fastest, lightest and most powerful road-legal Lamborghini produced to that point.

One of the first models in SV specification to leave the factory, this striking all-wheel-drive 2009 Murcielago SV features the aggressive aerodynamic package that has become synonymous with Lamborghini’s recent models.

This is most prominent at the front of the Murcielago SV with the angular front nose and enlarged air intakes. Options specified on the Murcielago SV include enlarged air vents in front of the rear wheels and additional air intakes adjacent to the engine cover, which automatically engage when the ambient temperature reaches 37.7° Celsius, feeding additional air into its V12 engine.

Chassis 022 features the full factory-order carbon-fibre package, including carbon brakes with additional bodywork cooling exiting in front of the mirrors, a carbon fibre ’Aeropack Wing’ and double-deckdiffuser that creates an area of low pressure below the car, helping to maximise aerodynamic efficiency.

Even more eye-catching is the fluorescent Giallo-yellow paintwork and enlarged black ’SV’ graphics behind both doors. The Murcielago SV also features lightweight gloss black alloy wheels, Giallo-yellow brake calipers and Lamborghini’s carbon fibre and glass engine cover.

The vivid colour scheme continues on the Murcielago SV’s interior but is slightly more subdued, with a fully-black interior consisting of carbon fibre and alcantara seats and trim with contrasting yellow stitching, both on the seats, floor and roof.

This example of the Murcielago SV has been fully serviced throughout its tenure by official Lamborghini Service Centres, covering just 15,646 miles.

Applications are now being accepted for this extremely rare and sought-after Lamborghini Murcielago SV. Viewing is strictly by appointment. Price on application.
