Murciélago production reaches the 2000 unit mark - the STORY

Success for the super sports car from Sant'Agata
Production of the Murciélago reaches the 2,000 unit mark

The Murciélago, which was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2001 as the first model in the new era of Lamborghini, has emphatically demonstrated the strength of its position in the super sports car segment. In April, the 2,000th car left the production line in Sant'Agata ...

The V12-powered icon from Lamborghini has therefore also reached a new sales landmark. In November of last year, the Gallardo became the most-sold model in the history of the company with the production of the 3,000th unit. The success of the Murciélago was celebrated by production staff in front of the Lamborghini Museum together with the President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, and the Head of Production, Klaus-Peter Körner.

The recent Geneva Motor Show saw the presentation of the new Murciélago Coupé which, compared to its predecessor, features a number of significant modifications to its bodywork and mechanics making it even more aggressive and powerful. Even the name of the new model, the Murciélago LP640, is new: the code LP640 refers to the position of the engine - longitudinale posteriore - and its maximum output of 640 hp. This gives it breathtaking performance including a top speed of 340 km/h and a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 3.4 seconds.

The Murciélago Coupé LP640 will be available from the summer, alongside three other models in the Lamborghini line-up: the Murciélago Roadster and the 10-cylinder, 5-litre, 520 bhp Gallardo and Gallardo Spyder. The market introduction of the Gallardo Spyder begins in the next few days.
