2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
The 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 was a highly successful coupe for the Italian automaker because of its considerable innovations in the areas of body design and internal mechanics. It also features a new name that tells its story: LP stands for the longitudinal engine position, longitudinale posteriore in Italian. The 640 numeric symbolizes its 640 horsepower.
The exterior designers focused on making the Lambo Murciélago LP640 even more aggressive. It has new more powerful looking rear and front bumpers that greatly enhance its appearance.
In the rear, the exhaust has become one with the rear diffuser. Additional enhancements include the rear lights. They make the car even more distinctive, especially when their glow becomes visible after dark.
The designers also took a functional yet fascinating approach to the sides of the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640. The area behind the air intake on the right side is, for all intents and purposes, almost entirely closed. Yet on the driver’s side, there is a large opening that maintains a cooling effect on the oil radiator.
The design of the sides of the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago is also worth mentioning: while the area behind the air intake on the right side is practically closed, the left side features a vast aperture for cooling the oil radiator. The shape of this Lambo is dictated by function.
There is a special emphasis on meeting the needs of the driver first. The seat cushions feature perforated leather. It also wraps the dashboard tunnel console and the driver’s door lining.
No detail has been spared in the revamping of the interior. Even the instrument panel has new graphics and lighting. The interior upholstery also has a distinct stitching that has been compared to throat lozenges.
The new 6.5 liter 60-degree V-12 engine produces 640 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. At 6,000 rpm, the 12-cylinder engine reaches its maximum torque of 486 lb. ft. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and an available E-gear auto-shifting manual transmission features steering column-mounted paddles.
