Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670–4 SuperVeloce
The SuperVeloce’s 6,496 cc (6.5 L; 396.4 cu in) V12 engine produces 670 PS (493 kW; 661 hp) at 8,000 rpm and 660 N⋅m (487 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm, due to revised valve timing and upgraded intake system. The car’s weight was also reduced by 100 kg (220 lb) through extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out.
According to Maurizio Reggiani, head of Lamborghini R&D at the time, the LP 670–4 SV’s steering was tuned for high-speed sensitivity. The original production plan of the ultimate Murciélago was limited to 350 cars, and cost $400,000 US (before options) £270,038 in 2009. However, only 186 LP 670-4s were produced before the factory had to make room for the new Aventador production line. Numbered cars 1–350 do not represent the order in which cars were manufactured. Only 5-6 are known to be produced with a manual transmission.
