Default 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Superveloce

Not so long ago, Lamborghini cars like the Mucielago, and their Ferrari counterparts, were just about the fastest things money could by. In the last couple of years, the rise of the boutique supercar has had an effect on the Italians. Lamborghini hits back with the 2010 Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, the fastest and most pure sports car ever to roll out of the Italian car icon's factory.

Smoking lesser Lamborghini Murcielago cars in nearly every respect, the SuperVeloce benefits from a lightened and totally reworked Lamborghini V12 engine, now producing 670 horsepower at the crank and helping the SuperVeloce weigh in at 220 pounds less than the standard Murcielago cars.

Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce driving dynamics set it apart.


More power and weight savings are nice for straight line speed and on spec sheets, but where Lamborghini has perhaps fallen behind nontraditional record holders like Nissan and Chevrolet has been in the handling department. The SuperVeloce seeks to change all that, combining front and rear variable limited slip differentials with an AWD system that is all about the track.

Sitting on a double wishbone suspension at all four corners with an innovative system utilizing a dual strut setup in the rear, the Murcielago SuperVeloce and its AWD system react to the road.

The weight distribution favors the rear ever so slightly, but with dual differentials able to send up to 35 percent of the power up front at a moment's notice, expect the SuperVeloce to be a very forgiving supercar without losing driving prowess.

Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce body and aerodynamics - Weight savings everywhere.

In addition to the lighter Lamborghini V12 powerplant, the Murcielago SuperVeloce gets extensive weight savings in the body with nearly 75 pounds shed in chassis and body panels. Particularly striking is the engine cover.

Functional as it is beautiful, the carbon and plexiglass honeycomb cover for the mid-mounted V12 is open in each section at its rear end, allowing greater cooling potential for an engine that will undoubtedly see some significant time at limit.

I think the spoiler accentuates the look.The front airdams are unbelievably menacing.Total drool machine.Is it going to be a limited production car?

Some other previous high performance Lamborghini editions
The Miura SV( sprinto veloce) and the Diablo SV( sport veloce)
The countach had QV(Quattrovalvole) but it was not exactly a high performance version.

Ah, the Murcielago's last hurrah. They should have thought about a strictly RWD version, a la R-GT.

Looks very nice.The color yellow has never looked better on any other car then the lambo.Striking engine cover.However i wish they gave it more power then 670 hp.The koenigsegg and maybe the zonda will still outperform it i think. But nevertheless a absolute stunner.

When would Lamborghini move away from the basic Luc Donkerwolke shape and come up with something fresh? Even the Reventon looks similar to the Murcielago (which came out in 2002?).

Not that I am complaining. It still looks smashing. But it is time they come up with another 'game-changer'...

This car is the Holy Grail of motoring...it just freezes you in your tracks....the sheer aggression,the sheer drama,the sound...brings tears to your eyes..and now SV.The Diablo SV was one of my favourite cars.Any present Ferrari will curl up & die in front of this...the Murcielago SV!

This is motoring bliss. I can't take my eyes off it...It takes me back to NFS 2, which had the Diablo SV!

Nice! I love the 'snake scale' look at the back.

Looks like a LP640 with an offroad kit of sorts with all that tacky black plastic..

someone said lamborghini failed on the 670SV and i truly agree
if it had to be for me, THIS would be it and NOT the 670

But the "tacky black plastic" is carbon fibre! That's what has helped the Murcielago shed 100 kilograms in weight!! And most of the "offroad kit" helps with aerodynamics..
