The former top dog (bull, in this case) from Sant’Agata Bolognese was made in just 186 units, but only 28 cars had the steering wheel on the right side. One of the RHD cars made by Lamborghini is now up for grabs at U.K.-based Super Veloce Racing and it’s available for £325,500 (about $430,300 / $383,000), so it’s more expensive than a standard Aventador ($402,995).
According to the supercar dealer, we’re dealing with chassis #002 and it’s one of the first Murcielagos built in Superveloce specification. The raging bull is a 2009 model year and comes with a striking Giallo yellow paint scheme combined with a black look for the aggressive diffuser and the massive rear wing. It comes with pretty much all the bells and whistles available at that time, including the full carbon fiber package and the “Aeropack Wing” to boost downforce and basically glue the supercar to the road.
Driven for a mere 15,646 miles (25,179 kilometers), the Murcielago SV was ordered with a black Alcantara interior cabin contrasted by the yellow stitching applied onto the headliner, floor, and seats to mimic the body’s color combo. SVR says the car has been fully serviced throughout its entire life at official Lamborghini service centers, so it should be in top-notch mechanical condition.
It was the quickest and most powerful production Lamborghini ever at that time thanks to its mighty 6.5-liter V12 naturally-aspirated engine pushing out 661 horsepower (493 kilowatts) and 490 pound-feet (660 Newton-meters) of torque. Delivered to the road via a six-speed, semi-automatic gearbox, the bull power is enough to help the Murcielago SV rocket to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 3.2 seconds and top out at 212 mph (342 kph) with the standard-fit rear spoiler. However, this particular car has the aforementioned optional Aeropack Wing lowering the maximum velocity to 209 mph (337 kph), not that a minor decrease in top speed really matters.

RARE 661BHP LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO SV OFFERED BY SUPER VELOCE RACING
- Chassis 022 of only 186 Lamborghini Murcielago SVs built by the Italian manufacturer
- One of only 28 right-hand-drive Murcielago SVs in existence
- Murcielago SV finished in Giallo yellow with black carbon fibre rear wing and diffuser
- Offered by Super Veloce Racing, specialist race and supercar sales and service agent
Super Veloce Racing (SVR) is now accepting applications for one of the rarest Lamborghinis in existence from its Buckinghamshire Showroom. One of only 28 in right-hand drive and 186 built worldwide, the Murcielago LP670-4 SV is offered by SVR, established and operated by ex-Lamborghini Aftersales Manager Alan Robb and ex-Lamborghini Works Driver Lee Cunningham, alongside business partner, Ben Adnett.
Just the third Lamborghini to adorn the famous Super Veloce moniker after the Miura SV and Diablo SV, this track-orientated version of the Murcielago utilises Lamborghini's iconic first-generation 6.5-litre V12 powerplant - the last Lamborghini model to do so - to produce 661bhp with a six-speed semi-automatic, E-gear transmission, making the SuperVeloce variant of the Murcielago the fastest, lightest and most powerful road-legal Lamborghini produced to that point.
One of the first models in SV specification to leave the factory, this striking all-wheel-drive 2009 Murcielago SV features the aggressive aerodynamic package that has become synonymous with Lamborghini's recent models.
This is most prominent at the front of the Murcielago SV with the angular front nose and enlarged air intakes. Options specified on the Murcielago SV include enlarged air vents in front of the rear wheels and additional air intakes adjacent to the engine cover, which automatically engage when the ambient temperature reaches 37.7° Celsius, feeding additional air into its V12 engine.
Chassis 022 features the full factory-order carbon-fibre package, including carbon brakes with additional bodywork cooling exiting in front of the mirrors, a carbon fibre 'Aeropack Wing' and double-deckdiffuser that creates an area of low pressure below the car, helping to maximise aerodynamic efficiency.
Even more eye-catching is the fluorescent Giallo-yellow paintwork and enlarged black 'SV' graphics behind both doors. The Murcielago SV also features lightweight gloss black alloy wheels, Giallo-yellow brake calipers and Lamborghini's carbon fibre and glass engine cover.
The vivid colour scheme continues on the Murcielago SV's interior but is slightly more subdued, with a fully-black interior consisting of carbon fibre and alcantara seats and trim with contrasting yellow stitching, both on the seats, floor and roof.
This example of the Murcielago SV has been fully serviced throughout its tenure by official Lamborghini Service Centres, covering just 15,646 miles.
Applications are now being accepted for this extremely rare and sought-after Lamborghini Murcielago SV. Viewing is strictly by appointment. Price on application.
