For the Paris 'Mondial de l'Automobile' and to celebrate the Fashion week in Milan, Versace and Lamborghini announced the production of a new, very limited edition model, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 VERSACE.
This exclusive model was the result of a new partnership between Gianni Versace SPA and the prestigious Automobili Lamborghini SpA based in Sant'Agata, Bologna.
A close collaboration between the Versace designers and the specialists for the 'Ad Personam' programme at Lamborghini perfected the already impressive interior found inside the 'standard' Murciélago LP640.
The lower section of the dashboard, the doors, the headliner, the central console and the seats were upholstered in a luxurious, full grain, nappa leather, all featuring the distinctive logo of the Versace House, a Greek fret motif, either embossed in the leather or finely stitched.
The Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 VERSACE was equipped with all the options available for this flagship, particularly the new 'Hermera' wheels now finished in high gloss black, the Carbon Fiber finish for the interior, the amazing glass engine cover and the well known e-Gear transmission.
The Automobili Lamborghini SpA stand on the Paris Auto Show would display a white 'Isis' edition, while during the Fashion Week in Milan, Versace would show the black 'Nero Aldebaran' version, the only two colors available for this very exclusive model with a production run of only 10 units !
To lift this rare Lamborghini LP640 VERSACE to an even higher level of luxury there would be a new series of accessories exclusively designed for this model, all hand-made in true Versace 'Couture' tradition.
The luggage set, composed of two suitcases (for him and for her) and one suit carrier in matte black calfskin adorned with the Greek fret motif was conceived especially for the luggage room of the Lamborghini Murciélago. On the outside of this set, a special authentication label would show the Versace 'Couture Limited Edition' script, this label would be able to open and show some personal information of the owner.
The interior in white satin would also be embroid with the Versace 'Couture Limited Edition' logo. Each piece would receive the same serial number as the car it was to be delivered with, this number would be engraved on a plaque inside the luggage.
A pair of driving shoes in blamatt blue calfskin from the Versace 'Couture Limited Edition' line and complementary, leather driving gloves completed the luxurious accessory set by Versace.
The 'Versace Precious Items' department designed an exclusive watch for the buyers of this car. The 'Chrono Matt Soft Touch would be available in either a high gloss black or a white ceramic finish, just in case a lady would buy this car, Versace offered a precious ladies watch in glossy white ceramic set with extra clear diamonds.
