Product Overview

Lamborghini Murcielago is a high-performance supercar production from 2001 to 2010. It was available with different tunes of the Lamborghini V12 engines that displaced 6.2 to 6.5 liters.
Compared to the Diablo that it replaced, the Murcielago has a much more modern underpinning as well as styling. It is therefore considerably easier to use and to handle.
The highlight of the vehicle, besides its unmistakable styling, is undoubtedly the legendary DOHC V12 engine. With a 21.3L/100km (11.0mpg) fuel "dis-economy", however, owners have to be prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile".
Utility-minded owners will likely need to keep an alternative for hauling things around, as the tiny cargo space is almost surely insufficient.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Lamborghini Murcielago comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners.
Lamborghini also made 21 limited edition Reventons based on the Murcielago in 2007.
