Lamborghini models, news & reviews

The supercar competition has caught up - and in some cases overtaken - the Italian bruiser in the five years since its launch. We've had The Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT, various Koenigseggs and Bugatti even got its act together and delivered the Veyron, each wanting a slice of the Lambo's pie. So Lamborghini closed the factory doors and rustled up this faster, harder and even more desirable car.
Look closer. Yes, the body is basically the same, but the chin spoiler is new as is the option of clear glass on the rear bonnet to let you see the mighty V12. The wheels are different - but still only 18 inches high for that traditional hunkered supercar stance and there are changes to the tail lamps and rear panel vents to help release the er, trapped wind, that the old car was having trouble expelling at high speed. And that has to be the world's biggest tailpipe.

RE: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 CAR review
Once went for a one day trip in this machine (didn't drive it unfortunately). The noise of those downshifts are worth the price of the car alone. Nothing this side of a Zonda comes even close for sheer excitement.
Thank you Lamborghini!
