Successor to the Diablo, the Murciélago was the flagship V-12 vehicle for Lamborghini for almost a decade

Lamborghini introduced the Murciélago back in 2001 as a successor to the Diablo. The Murciélago was in production for almost a decade. It was the first new car after 11 years and also happened to be the first under its new parent, Volkswagen. The Italian car was also the new flagship V-12 and worthy to be the face of the company. The car sold in decent numbers – 4,099 examples to be exact – and is still a hit with enthusiasts.

If you are someone who was craving to own one, here’s your chance to own a 2006 model Murciélago with 14,000 miles on the odo, courtesy of the Bring-a-Trailer auction.

This 2006 model is finished in Grigio Antares shade. It comes with interesting exterior intricacies, such as bi-xenon headlights and a single pantograph wiper. It rides on 18-inch aluminum wheels with Lamborghini center caps. The wheels are wrapped in Pirelli rubber measuring 245/35 section at the front and 335/30 at the back. The seller notes that these tires were installed in Miami in 2019 along with a wheel replacement. The braking duties are taken over by silver-finished calipers fitted over cross-driller rotors. The Murcielago also features scissor doors and an automatically deployable rear spoiler.
