You can call it whatever you want, but the people at Lamborghini call their new Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce a car for the purist. Any Lambo is judged at least partially on its numbers, so let’s cut to the chase. Power is from a 6.5 liter V-12, producing 670hp-30 more hp than the uh, ahem, “base” Murcielago. The bump in horses is the result of improved valve timing and a revised intake system. Lamborghini engineered weight out the car-engine, transmission, chassis, interior, for a total of 220lbs shaved off. All this adds to a a 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds (!). Top speed depends on you-the SuperVeloce buyer can choose between a standard small wing, which will get you to 212mph. Opt for the larger “Aeropack” wing for greater downforce, and 209mph is all you get.Ã‚Â
Increased downforce was an important part to the SuperVeloce, even without the optional rear wing. The front and rear of the car were redesigned to improve high-speed stability. The other main visual cue that this is no ordinary Murcielago is the transparent engine cover.Ã‚Â
Inside, drivers will find an interior trimmed in carbon fiber and alcantara. Special sport seats made of carbon fiber shells are standard, but if you prefer the standard Murcielago seats, they are a no-cost option. In keeping with the purist theme, there is no radio or navigation, but they are an available option. Lambo’s sequential, automated manual e.gear is standard, which to me is at odds with the “purist” theme of the SuperVeloce. Thankfully, a true six-speed manual in a classic gated shifter is available. And we know which box the true purists will check off.Ã‚Â
