Watch 'the Crazy Swede' drift this Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce to a very smokey effect during the shooting of a promotional video for the fastest Lambo ever built.
Not often do you find an accomplished racing driver and Hollywood stuntman expressing his satisfactory feelings about a job he'd just finished. But that is what the man known as the Crazy Swede did after he posted this smoking video of the new Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce on his YouTube page.
The accompanying description reads as thus: "Check out the video of the brand new Lamborghini Murcielago SV. I had a blast driving the car for the video shot in Hamburg Germany. Hope you enjoy it."
There indeed is very wide scope for enjoyment for the one who clicks on the video. That's because the Crazy Swede, whose real name is Samuel Hübinette, drifts the wheels off the SV while filming a promotional video of the car. Most of it is shot at an underground parking lot ala Tokyo Drift.
Drifting any AWD car is no simple task but drifting one that not only has AWD but two limited slip differentials takes some serious skill. They don't call him the Crazy Swede for nothing. To be fair he did have quite the machine in his hands during the shoot. The Murciélago SV features a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 670hp (493kW) and 660Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque. With a 0 - 100km/h time of 3.2 seconds and a maximum velocity of 342km/h (212 mph) the Murciélago SV is the fastest Lamborghini ever produced.
