Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Versace Edition 2007

Lamborghini unveiled the Murcielago LP640 Versace at the Paris Motor Show. This is actually a special version of the LP640 Murcielago. The engine is mounted longitudinally behind the driver and it is a 6.5-liter V12. The Murcielago was introduced in 2002 as a successor to the Diablo and the body is a two door, two-seat Coupe. In 2004 was introduced an open-top version called the Murcielago roadster for the 2005 model year. The name of the car comes from a bull that survived 24 sword strokes in a fight that took place in 1879 at the arena of Cordoba and fought with such passion that the matador decided to spare his life and this rarely happens. Then, the bull was presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura, a noted breeder, and went on to sire a line of famous fighting bulls. The price for the model starts at $ 273.000.

Lamborghini today at the Paris Motor show unveiled the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Versace ? a special edition version of the new LP640 Murcielago. Like the regular LP640, this car is powered by a 6.5-litre V12, longitudinally mounted behind the driver. The Versace edition features a customized all-white exterior and a matching white interior.


The Lamborghini Murcielago is a GT and supercar automobile made by Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. and designed by Luc Donckerwolke. It was introduced in 2002 as the successor to the Diablo. The body style is a two door, two seat coupe.

An open-top version called the Murcielago roadster was introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year. The roadster features similar performance to the coupe with a more aggressive rear flank, as well as a considerably higher price tag.

The Murcielago sports a 6.2 L version of the legendary Lamborghini V12 engine, a six speed manual or six speed e-gear sequential gearbox and All Wheel Drive. It also has a rear spoiler that can be raised to an angle of 70 degrees, the side mirrors fold in to increase aerodynamics and side scoops that automatically open to the needed size to let in just the right amount of air needed to cool its engine.


The name Murcielago comes from a bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight at the arena of Cordoba, and fought with such passion and spirit that the matador chose to spare its life, a rare honor. In another Lamborghini tie-in, the bull was later presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura, a noted breeder, and went on to sire a line of famous fighting bulls. Murcielago also means bat in Spanish, and a Murcielago roadster is featured briefly in the movie Batman Begins. The coupe`s base price is US$ 273,000, which is US$90,000 more than its smaller sibling, the Lamborghini Gallardo.
