Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce

Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce

After much rumour and anticipation it’s finally arrived: The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. Lamborghini has just released official info and pics on its latest mighty Murc, and this one sits up top. The LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is described by Lamborghini as “exceptionally purist”. The description fits as the LP 670-4 SV is more powerful, lighter and faster than the LP-640. As its name suggests, the LP 670-4 SV sees an increase in power to 670 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque from Lambo’s 6.5L V12, all of which was achieved by optimising the engine’s valve timing and tweaking the air intake system.

Combine the extra power with a weight decrease of 100 kg and performance figures begin to fall fast. 0-100 kph is now achieved in just 3.2 seconds and top speed is 341 kph with the standard, small spoiler. A larger “Aeropack Wing” offering more downforce is also available, but the additional drag drops top speed slightly.

The LP 670-4 doesn’t look like your average Murcielago. Up front the air intakes have been made larger for better brake cooling and the front spoiler extends much further out. The new engine cover features three hexagonal transparent polymer plates supported by a carbon fibre framework. The interior has also been upholstered entirely in Alcantara and features stitching that matches the exterior color of the car.

You can’t argue with a car that’s faster, lighter and more powerful than its predecessors, and the Lamborghini LP 670-4 SuperVeloce does all that and then some.
