With racing cars come roadgoing versions. It's as predictable as the changing of the seasons. Now that the Lamborghini Murcielago has taken to the track in R-GT form, there's a way to get a similar vehicle for the street. Reiter Engineering, the German firm responsible for the Murcielago R-GT, showed a road-ready version of the lightened track car at the Essen Motor Show.
The show car's specific modifications are unknown, but if it's like the track car then it's got a standard Murcielago V12 engine and two-wheel drive. The obvious exterior modifications include a carbon-fiber spoiler up front and a new diffuser and spoiler at the rear, as well as a distinctive high-mounted dual exhaust outlet that's in line with the taillights. Black O.Z. Racing wheels set the yellow show car apart. The Murcielago R-GT shown at Essen will be sold as a one-off car, and Reiter says it will offer some of the components as limited-edition aftermarket pieces.
