In the wake of anticipating the new Lamborghini Jota, Lamborghini has just rolled out the last flagship Murcielago from the production line; a Lamborghini Murcielago LP-670 SuperVeloce. It is the last of the V12 models until the new Jota comes out.
The car wore a production number of 4099 and is said to have been sold to a Swiss customer. The SuperVeloce was the most flamboyant of all the Murcielagos, featuring flares, wings and scoops in abundance. It also features a 6.5-litre V12 outputting a whopping 485kW of power.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said at the recent ceremony,
“The Murcielago embodies the pure, unadulterated values of our brand. It is truly extreme, uncompromising and unmistakably Italian. This already makes it one of the legends of the sports car world. But the Lamborghini story continues. In 2011, we will take a huge step into the future with the successor to the Murcielago – with the most innovative technology and, once again, truly stunning design.”
The Murcielago was launched back in 2001 and has since carried the same, low, sleek design throughout the years. There’s been a few different variations of the car, such as the LP640, but in essence they’ve all been serious mid-mounted V12 supercars.
This was also the first model Lamborghini released as a partnership effort with Volkswagen/Audi Group, and was the first Lamborghini to feature German-made parts.
Now we’ll just have to wait for the new Jota to enter the showroom to regain top spot in the company’s lineup. It’s due some time in 2011.
