Lamborghini Murcielago Review

There’s no denying the supercar power of the Lamborghini Murcielago. From its stunning design, scissor doors, to its powerhouse V12 engine, the Murcielago delivers what is expected of a top notch Lamborghini. A little help from Audi has also turned the Murcielago into a more durable and well-built model. And although it wouldn’t be the first choice for anyone in need of an everyday vehicle, the Murcielago is not an intimidating drive and a practical choice for daily journeys. Read on to know how the Lamborghini Murcielago performs on the road and according to specific journey conditions.

Pros

The Murcielago first came with a powerful 6.2-litre V12 engine at 580bhp; eventually this was upgraded to a 6.5-litre unit at 631bhp. Expect to go into full speed as you go into a 62mph sprint from standstill, as acceleration occurs in just 4.0 seconds. Top speed is at a mind-blowing 200mph for the 580bhp unit. A slightly faster performance is guaranteed by the 6.5-litre engine at 640bhp that arrives at the 62mph sprint in just 3.4seconds. All V12 engines derive their incredible speed and consistent performance from its Countach heritage. The engine’s power is best complemented with the six-speed manual gearbox over the E-gear paddle shift.

Four-wheel drive comes as the Murcielagos’ standard, allowing the tyres to cope against the brutish power of the vehicle. Large grip reserves are also present to absorb minor bumps and mid-corner surface lumps, and are enhanced by weighted power steering. Carbon ceramic discs, capable brakes, and ESP traction control also further improve the Murcielago’s handling.

Comfort is guaranteed in the Murcielago. Its scissor doors don’t hamper the available interior space, allowing for easy entry and exit into the vehicle. Plus the sill isn’t so wide that passengers don’t end up scrambling into the car. Leather seats are shaped appropriately and the cabin large enough to prevent any kind of claustrophobia. Climate control enhances the interior experience by allowing you to cool off during summer days.

Drivers will have no problems easing into the Murcielago’s position. The gear level, pedal, and steering well are all practically positioned and within easy access as you start the journey. The clear and simple dash design also helps in inviting any driver into riding and controlling the Murcielago. The front view is also comprehensive.

As a leader in the supercar market, the Murcielago doesn’t hold back in its default equipment. Apart from speed and sound, you also get climate control, front suspension that rides smoothly over speed humps, standard leather seats, and a decent CD stereo.

Cons

The Murcielago may be generous in size, but the spacious interior doesn’t work too well for its exterior. The wide dimensions make it difficult to park on most regular lots. Thankfully this can be remedied through a reversing camera and the electrically raised front suspension’s absorption of speed humps.

Space may be generous inside and out, but bonnet space can be lacking for those who intend to go on long weekend trips. The roof is also a problem as it can be fiddly to attach and is rather complicated in nature.

A History of the Lamborghini Murcielago

The Lamborghini Murcielago is a sports car marketed from 2001 to 2010. In its 9-year stint, the company has produced a little over four thousand units. The Murcielago replaced the Diablo and heralded the Aventador, currently Lamborghini’s flagship model.

The Murcielago was designed by then head of design Luc Donckerwolke. Donckerwolke has since moved on to head the design team of Volkswagen Group, parent company of Lamborghini since the company was acquired by Audi in 1998. The Murcielago coupe was first introduced in 2001 at the Frankfurt Auto Show. One of its most outstanding features is the Lambo or scissor doors.

The first generation was introduced as Murcielago or VT. A roadster version was released in 2004. The second generation was unveiled in 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show. The LP 640 is the first Murcielago to incorporate an alphanumeric naming system. At the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show, Lamborghini made another appearance with the LP 640 Roadster. Finally, the LP 670-4 SuperVeloce was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. The SuperVeloce marked the end of production for the Murcielago. Its replacement, the Aventador, was launched beginning 2011.

Editions of the Murcielago were also produced between 2004 and 2010. Racing versions for motorsport were also made with the help of Audi’s Reiter Engineering.
