Lamborghini Murcielago Gets New SuperVeloce Halo Supercar Model(-RSportsCars)
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.
