The last, best Murcielago

How would you design a better supercar? If I were handed the spec sheet, I’d keep things simple – add power, cut weight, and make it look like it could jump between dimensions. Funny enough, that’s basically what Lamborghini did with the final iteration of the Murcielago. Dubbed the LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, this limited edition uber-bull is framed as a purer, more track-oriented interpretation of the original, with upgrades and modifications performed from tip to tail, including the aerodynamics, chassis, engine, transmission, and interior. The result? More speed.

The biggest contributor to the velocity increase is a drastically reduced curb weight, which is the result of extensive integration of everyone’s favorite composite material, carbon fiber. Paired with the most powerful engine ever fitted to a Murcielago, the LP 670 is a true ground-bound rocket ship.

“The new Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is the systematic continuation of our brand philosophy,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, in a press release when the car was first released. “It is more extreme and uncompromising than virtually any other automobile.”

Sounds promising. But how does it fair amongst the top-end performance vehicles of today?

History And Background

2009 - 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce High Resolution Exterior
- image 631842

The LP 670 is based on the Lamborghini Murcielago, which was produced between 2001 and 2010. The successor to the iconic Lamborghini Diablo, the Murcielago was the first new model produced after the brand was sold to the Volkswagen Group in 1998. The name means “bat” in Spanish, taking after a famous fighting bull from the late 1800s.

The LP 670 edition of the Murcielago debuted in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show, with the SuperVeloce (SV) designation used to identify the LP 670 as a faster, more hardcore range-topping variant. Lamborghini typically creates an SV edition at the end of a given model’s production run, with previous SV’ed models including the Miura and Diablo.

In 2011, the Murcielago was replaced by the Aventador, but not before some 4,099 units were produced. Meanwhile, the LP 670 enjoyed a far more limited production cycle (see the Prices section for more).

The Murcielago was originally styled by Luc Donckerwolke, a Peruvian-born Belgian who headed Lambo’s design department between 1998 and 2005. One look is all you need to confirm the model as classic Lambo – the stance is incredible low and wide, with deep-cut angles and sharp edges, like a speed wedge ready to dice through the corners as quick as you dare.

Per tradition, the LP 670 manages to kick those characteristics into overdrive.

In front is a brand-new fascia, with the lower splitter section made from carbon fiber and finished in matte-black. The are vertical elements connecting the lower section the upper, and the functional side intakes were made bigger to help cool the brakes. The wedge-shaped headlights maintain that very slick-looking black backing. Keeping the chin scrape-free is a standard lift system, which raises the car by 1.8 inches to help maneuver around speed bumps, angled pavement, and more than $0.15 of stacked change.

One look is all you need to confirm the model as classic Lambo.

On the sides, the sills and intakes were also painted matte black to match the fascia, while the doors open upwards like the Countach. Mounted behind the cabin is a redesigned transparent engine cover, which gets a very cool hexagonal pattern running the length of it. Made from polycarbonate with a carbon-fiber framework, there are three levels of slats opening outwards towards the rear for enhanced engine cooling.

The taillights get Y-shaped turn signal graphics, which are also used on the base Murcielago, Reventon, and Gallardo LP 560-4. Between the taillights is a carbon-fiber insert, below which sits aluminum mesh with additional hexagonal patterning. Lambo says the mesh was laser-cut and uses a Teflon coating to protect against heat.

A single, hexagon-shaped exhaust tip makes the fun noises. There’s also a new, two-level diffuser, once again made from carbon fiber.

Lambo offered two options for the rear wing. The standard LP 670 spoiler offered improved downforce compared to the base Murcielago, but if you were looking for maximum high-speed stability, there was also something called the Aeropack Wing. Although it knocked a few mph off the car’s top speed, the larger carbon spoiler provided significantly greater downforce, making it the right choice for track enthusiasts.

Another cool feature of the car’s exterior were “intake funnels” that rose from the rear pillars when the engine needed additional cooling. Lower running temps saw the funnels sitting flush with the bodywork.

In the corners are “Ares” aluminum-alloy forged wheels with a five twin-spoke design. Paint options included Giallo Orion, Arancio Atlas, Bianco Isis, Grigio Telesto, and Nero Aldebaran. There was also the option for matte hues like Bianco Canopus and Nero Nemesis.

Lambo says the LP 670’s interior reflects the car’s “purist and minimalist” philosophy. Basically, that boils down to less luxury and a greater focus on the task at hand.

More Alcantara and carbon fiber can be seen everywhere you look.

For starters, there’s no radio or nav system to be found, although Lambo did offer to install one as an option. However, the press release says it best – “At the end of the day, the music in a Murcielago comes from the engine compartment.”

Hugely bolstered sport buckets made from carbon fiber and covered in black Alcantara provide seating for two, while the softer, more forgiving seats from the base Murcielago were offered as a no-charge option.

More Alcantara and carbon fiber can be seen everywhere you look, including the headliner, which mimics the seats with Y-shaped perforations that expose an inlaid backing material in the same color as the exterior paint.

Dividing the two seating positions is a wide center tunnel complete with a standard “oh-crap” handle for the passenger.

Drivetrain

2009 - 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce High Resolution Drivetrain
- image 631852

The party piece is a mid-ship, longitudinally mounted, naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 with sequential fuel injection. The block and heads are made from aluminum, and the cylinders are mounted at 60 degrees. There are four chain-driven cams that are variably controlled, and the intake manifold operates in three stages. There’s dry sump lubrication to ensure adequate oil supply under heavy load, plus 12 liters of oil capacity chilled by a heat exchanger located along the left flank. The electronics, which were internally developed by Lamborghini, use separate processors for each cylinder bank.

A run from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.2 seconds, about two-tenths quicker than the standard Murcielago.

On the base Murcielago, this powerplant creates a heady 640 horsepower. However, thanks to modifications to the intake system, an optimized valvetrain, and increased valve travel, the LP 670 makes (you guessed it) 670 horsepower, 30 more than the base model. Peak power hits at a head-spinning 8,000 rpm, while peak torque (487 pound-feet) arrives at 6,500 rpm. Redline is 8,250 rpm.

So what about acceleration? A run from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.2 seconds, about two-tenths quicker than the standard Murcielago. Top speed is upped to 212 mph, which is 2 mph faster. Throw on the larger, drag-heavy Aeropack Wing, and you’ll still get 209 mph.

The standard transmission is a sequential, electro-hydraulic six-speed automatic “e-gear” box, which makes for quicker shifts than the standard model. Lambo also offered an old-school six-speed manual as a no-cost option, which came complete with a classic open gate shifter.

Max stick is provided by the permanent AWD system, which uses a viscous coupling to send up to 35 percent of available torque to the front wheels.

Handling And Chassis

2009 - 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce High Resolution Exterior
- image 631853

Underneath the wild aero is a tubular steel frame and copious carbon fiber. The transmission tunnel and floor, for example, are both composite, and come attached to the frame thanks to rivets and high-strength adhesives. The roof and exterior door panels are steel, while the rest of the body is carbon fiber.

The roof and exterior door panels are steel, while the rest of the body is carbon fiber.

To help cut weight, Lambo’s engineers probed every nook and cranny. To begin, the LP 670 uses high-strength steel for its framework, which not only cuts 44 pounds, but also increases torsional rigidity by 12 percent. The front fenders, rear side panels, and even the casing for the third brake light received a “modified” carbon fiber material. The movable rear spoiler was replaced with a fixed unit, the exhaust was reworked, and the clutch was lightened. Inside, Alcantara replaces leather for the upholstery, and the infotainment gear was ditched.

In total, 72.6 pounds was cut from the chassis and exterior, 74.8 pounds was cut from the interior, and 72.6 pounds was cut from the drivetrain, reducing the final curb weight to 3,451 pounds – a 220-pound difference.

While certainly helpful when it comes to acceleration, the diet really shows in the corners. Around 58 percent of the car’s weight is centered over the rear axle, which means it’s also quite lively, despite being AWD.

There is a double-wishbone suspension set-up with adjustable coilover dampers in all four corners. The dry sump lubrication also means the V-12 is mounted closer to the ground, which makes the center of gravity even lower.

The wheels are measured at 18x8.5-inches in front and 18x13-inches in the rear, with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa rubber providing the footprint. Tire sizing is measured at 245/35R18 in front and 335/30R18 in the rear.

Finally, carbon ceramic brakes, which came as options on the 640, are standard on the 670, cutting even more weight. The discs are 15-inches across, and use six-piston calipers.

Originally revealed at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Scuderia used the same formula as the LP 670 for maximum driving excitement, cutting 220 pounds from the curb weight and extracting an additional 15 horsepower from the powerplant. Routing the go to the rear axle is a semi-automatic transmission. A run to 62 mph takes roughly 3.6 seconds, while top speed is rated at 202 mph.

Introduced in 2006, the 997 GT3 RS took after the RSR racer pounding it out in endurance races at Sebring and Le Mans. More grip comes thanks to a wider track and enhanced downforce, while up to 500 horsepower was possible from the upgraded 4.0-liter engine. Curb weight tipped the scales at a feathery sub-3,000 pounds.

Conclusion

2009 - 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce High Resolution Exterior
- image 631854

I’m one of those enthusiasts that loves Lamborghinis for being crazy – crazy to drive, crazy to look at, crazy to hear. And although it’s AWD and made by Audi, I genuinely feel like the LP 670 still ticks those boxes. First of all, it definitely looks the part thanks to all the upgraded aero. The interior is spartan and focused, and if you put the loud pedal to the floor, you’re met with hyperspace acceleration. It’s still a bonkers machine, and at just 186 units total, pretty rare as well.

Any way you slice it, this thing is a monster, so don’t say I didn’t warn you if you see its teeth.

  • Leave it
    • * AWD might be too safe for some
    • * Not exactly road friendly
    • * Pretty expensive for a Murcielago

Press Release

The Lamborghini Murciélago is one of the most extraordinary super sports cars of all time. Automobili Lamborghini has now expanded its model range with a new, exceptionally purist and even more extreme top model – the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is even more powerful, lighter and faster than the Murciélago LP 640. With the output of the 6.5 liter V12 increased to 670 hp and a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. This catapults it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds and powers it on to a top speed of around 342 km/h (212 mph). Distinctive design refinements ensure that each of this 350-unit limited edition series conveys its full potential from the very first glance.

With its outstanding performance, razor-sharp precision and exceptional high-speed stability, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is the ultimate performance car for advanced sports car drivers. The super sports car has been extensively redesigned with a new front and rear, an innovative engine bonnet and a choice of two aerodynamic set-ups featuring either a small or large rear spoiler. The interior in Alcantara and carbon fiber provides a purist and minimalist approach.

In order to achieve the substantial weight reduction of 100 kilograms (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce was extensively reworked and redeveloped in virtually every aspect – from chassis to engine and transmission, right through to the interior. The increase in engine output from 640 to 670 hp is the result of optimized valve timing and a reworked intake system. The significantly modified aerodynamics with substantially increased downforce brings considerable improvement to vehicle stability at very high speeds. With the small standard-fit rear spoiler, top speed stands at 342 km/h (212 mph), while the large “Aeropack Wing” and its added downforce gives a top speed of 337 km/h (209 mph).

“The new Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is the systematic continuation of our brand philosophy. It is more extreme and uncompromising than virtually any other automobile,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “As the new top model of the highly successful Murciélago range, the SuperVeloce displays not only outstanding driving dynamics, it is also further evidence of our company’s technological expertise. Customers can look forward to an utterly unparalleled driving experience.”

Design and aerodynamics

2009 - 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce High Resolution
- image 288422

The Murciélago is an icon of the Lamborghini brand – a sports machine of menacing character and brutal power. Its unique design radiates a supreme form of highly concentrated sensuality. Wide, low, with its glass area pushed way forward and a long, taut back – the interplay between the soft contours of the basic form and razor sharp edges is the perfect expression of the Lamborghini design language. In the totality of its character, the Murciélago is without comparison on the sports car market.

Yet even a character like this can be further refined – the new Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is the more extreme, even more purist pinnacle of the model range. This is clearly evident from the very first glimpse of its completely redesigned front end – pulled way forward and finished in matt black paint, the carbon fiber front spoiler is connected to the front end via two vertical elements. The large air intakes for the front brakes are more powerfully emphasized. The new front fenders feature additional air intakes for brake ventilation. The air vent for the oil cooler located in the driver-side sill area is painted matt black to match the sills.

The modifications are even more apparent around the mighty engine bay of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The twelve-cylinder engine is presented as an engineering masterpiece under a transparent engine bonnet that boasts a completely new architecture. Hexagonal polymer plates made from transparent polycarbonate are set on three levels within a carbon fiber framework. The layers are open towards the rear, playing a key role in the thermodynamics of the high-performance engine.

The impressive rear end of the SuperVeloce is dominated by a veritably noble, flat and extremely wide exhaust tailpipe and, on the underside, by a two-level diffuser system finished entirely in carbon fiber. The rear light clusters display their signals in that distinctive Y-shape that has been a fixed element of Lamborghini design since the Murciélago LP 640, Reventón and Gallardo LP 560-4. The panel between the lights is made from carbon fiber, while the large intake mesh below expands across the full width of the rear end. Made from thick-walled aluminum, the hexagonal pattern is laser-cut and a Teflon coating provides the necessary heat protection.

The aerodynamics of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce have been completely redeveloped. Alongside the enlarged front spoiler and the twin rear diffuser, the new fixed rear spoiler also plays an important role. Customers can choose between two versions, with the small rear spoiler providing improved downforce at high speeds. As an option, the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce can be supplied with the “Aeropack Wing” – a large, fixed, carbon-fiber wing mounted on two carbon-fiber brackets. The new aerodynamic set-up provides a significant boost to directional stability at the very highest speeds. The top-speed downforce on the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce with Aeropack is strongly increased.

Bodyshell and lightweight construction

With the construction of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, Lamborghini proves its expertise in the manufacture of lightweight materials and in working with hi-tech carbon fiber. The structure of the super sports car is a composite construction of extremely stiff carbon components and a tubular steel frame – as in a race car. The transmission tunnel and the floor are made of carbon fiber, attached to the steel frame using rivets and high-strength adhesives. The roof and the exterior door panels are formed in sheet steel, while the remainder of the outer skin is made from carbon composite material.

For the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese recalculated the framework and selected a new, super high-strength sectional steel. This achieved two objectives – on the one hand, they increased the torsional stiffness of the chassis by 12 percent to provide improved handling precision and, on the other, they were able to reduce weight by 20 kg (44 lbs), making a significant contribution to the reduction of overall vehicle weight. And the systematic approach to lightweight design continues throughout the entire bodyshell. The front fenders, the rear side panels/fenders and the casing for the third brake light are made of a modified carbon-fiber material. Combined with the removal of the drive for the moveable spoiler, this brings a further weight reduction of 13 kg (28.6 lbs).

Added to the 33 kg (72.6 lbs) of weight reduction from the chassis and exterior, are 34 kg (74.8 lbs) from the interior, as well as over 33 kg (72.6 lbs) removed from the engine and drive train.

Power unit and transmission

The longitudinally mounted 6.5 liter V12 delivers the infernal power for an unparalleled driving experience. With 670 hp (493 kW), the engine in the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is 30 hp more powerful than in the Murciélago LP 640. The twelve-cylinder sends its mighty 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft at 6,500 rpm; maximum power is reached at 8,000 rpm, with an average piston speed of 23.7 meters per second – a figure almost comparable to race engines.

The V12 is eager to deliver its performance – it brings its menacing power with immediacy and precision to guarantee breathtaking performance – after only 3.2 seconds the SuperVeloce has already reached 100 km/h (62 mph).

The engine block and heads of the V12, positioned at the ideal cylinder angle of 60 degrees, are made from aluminum. The four chain-driven camshafts are variably controlled, while the intake manifold operates in three stages – both technologies add even greater thrust to the merciless pushing power. To increase the performance of the SuperVeloce, the intake system was modified, the valve train optimized and, most importantly, valve travel was increased.

The control electronics for the V12 were developed internally by Lamborghini - each cylinder bank has its own high-performance processor. If the engine needs more cooling air, intake funnels emerge from the rear pillars: when not in operation, they lie flush with the bodyshell. Dry sump lubrication enables the V12 to be mounted extremely low down, benefiting the handling dynamics: this also guarantees oil supply under extremely dynamic driving conditions. With 12 liters of lubricating oil in circulation, the oil cooler is located on the left side of the vehicle and cooled by air flowing through the aperture in the sill.

The weight reduction of more than 26 kg (57 lbs) in the engine area was derived primarily from the completely new exhaust system. The muffler has been redesigned and even the mighty tailpipe of the SuperVeloce manufactured from new materials is lighter than on the Murciélago LP 640. But most of all, the new exhaust system makes for an acoustic experience that is surely equal to the driving performance – from the heavy rumble of a stormy night, through the trumpeting of mighty elephants to the roar of a raging lion, the SuperVeloce performs the grand opera for 12 cylinders, 48 valves and 8,000 revs.

The SuperVeloce is equipped as standard with the sequential, automated manual transmission e.gear, which uses electro-hydraulics to shift gear extremely quickly and smoothly. A cockpit display informs the driver of the gear currently engaged. In addition a special “Corsa” mode and a “Low adherence” mode are available.

As a no-premium option, the SuperVeloce is available with a six-speed manual transmission. Its short metal shift stick runs in an open gate of classic Italian elegance. In both variants, the new lightweight clutch makes its own contribution to the weight loss program.

All-wheel drive and chassis

The Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce delivers its extreme power to the road with great reliability – assured by its permanent all-wheel drive. Before the rear wheels spin, the viscous coupling sends up to 35 percent of driving force via its additional shaft to the front wheels. The front and rear limited-slip differentials are set at 25 and 45 percent. With its four driven wheels and traction, the Murciélago delivers a decisive advantage over rear-wheel drive sports cars when it comes to accelerating out of a corner – and always with maximum stability. The rear axle bears 58 percent of its overall weight – a distribution ratio that is highly beneficial to traction.

Explosive dynamics, tenacious cornering and extreme speeds – the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is a super sports car packed with aggressive power, but by no means a mean-spirited car. Its steering requires very little power support, giving full control of the car to the driver. Those prepared to tackle the beast head on are quickly rewarded with intimate contact and trust – as speed increases, so the Murciélago reveals its strengths, thus exposing a character with no hidden surprises and behavior that can always be anticipated.

The Murciélago is fitted with double wishbone suspension all round. Spring struts – two on each of the rear wheels and one on each of the front – control the loads transferred from the road. The standard-fit lifting system enables the front end of the vehicle to be raised by 45 mm (1.8 inches) to avoid obstacles such as garage entryways. The SuperVeloce is equipped with exclusive “Ares” alloy-forged wheels, bearing the exclusive five twin-spoke design. The front wheels are clad in 245/35 ZR 18 rubber, while the rears sport 335/30 ZR 18. High-grip Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires come as standard.

Four brakes controlled by a hi-tech ABS system are capable of mighty stopping power when required. The Carbon Ceramic (CCB) brakes are fanned by cooling air flowing through enlarged channels in the bodyshell, while openings in the front fenders provide additional ventilation for the SuperVeloce. The ceramic discs are exceptionally lightweight, fade-free and capable of extremely high operational performance.

Interior and equipment

Even stepping into the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is an experience as individual as the vehicle itself. The upward-opening doors – a solution developed by Lamborghini in the early seventies for the Countach – are released via small latches, then swing wide open to reveal a panorama of the exclusive interior of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The dominating materials are Alcantara and carbon fiber, which make for an ambience that is as high-quality as it is sporty.

The sports bucket seats come as standard and provide exceptionally firm support around the hip and shoulder areas. The bucket seats are made from lightweight and highly robust carbon fiber and guarantee the driver perfect support, even in the most extreme driving situations. The Murciélago’s standard seats are also available on the SuperVeloce as an option free of charge.

Not only the seats are upholstered in black Alcantara micro-fiber; the cockpit and the roof lining are also finished in this high-quality, lightweight material. The Y-shaped perforations on the seats and roof lining bring additional finesse, with an inlaid backing material in the same color as the exterior paintwork. The Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce can be delivered with the paint finishes Giallo Orion, Arancio Atlas, Bianco Isis, Grigio Telesto and Nero Aldebaran, as well as Bianco Canopus (white matt) and Nero Nemesis (black matt) as an option.

Naturally, the interior also makes its contribution to weight reduction. The door panels are clad in carbon fiber, as is the wide center tunnel. The application of Alcantara instead of leather is another weight-saver, just like the selection of sports bucket seats and the omission of the radio-navigation system (if requested, this is available as an option). At the end of the day, the music in a Murciélago comes from the engine compartment. Overall, modifications to the interior contribute over 34 kg (75 lbs) to the SuperVeloce weight loss program.

But absolutely no corners have been cut when it comes to one characteristic that is a feature of all Lamborghini super sports cars – the exceptionally high quality of the workmanship. The craftsmen in Sant’Agata Bolognese are all masters of their respective trades; the three-year warranty bears testimony to absolute faith in product quality.

After all, it’s not like it is Ferrari or Aston Martin - this car (and the whole brand for that matter) is not a race-designed or luxury-oriented. It is just an expensive car (with no track history, or any history at all, mind ya) for people that want attention when they pull to the valet parking downtown.

I was just thinking the exact opposite. I’m glad Lambo remembers what color it always did best - Yellow. I was getting sick of those retarded lime green and orange paint jobs. Looked like aliens. This looks mean! Should have ditched the 4WD for even more weight loss though, I don’t think it would suffer that much - the wide track alone would keep it on the road/track.

Well this is a true super car with its engine power and ultimate speed. But last 2004 the Lamborghini Murcielago was faster by its acceleration of 2.8 seconds while this one performed 3.2 seconds. But this car is still better!
