The mightiest bull there ever was ... edo competition builds the world's fastest Lamborghini Murciélago.
Anyone searching for the exceptional simply has to look to edo competition. Tapping its roots as one of the ultimate performance vehicle tuners, the company from Ahlen, Germany has turned its eyes towards a very special car, the new Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640.
The already extremely capable monster has been turned into the world's fastest and most powerful Lamborghini Murciélago by edo competition: the edo LP710 /2.
Engine: 6.5 liter V12
Power: 710 hp (522 kW) at 7625 rpm
Torque: 700 Nm (516 ft-lb) at 6400 rpm
Acceleration 0 - 100 km/h (0 – 62 mph): 3.2 seconds
0 – 200 km/h (0 – 124 mph): under 10 seconds!
Top speed: >360 km/h (>224 mph)
The increase in power was achieved through the use of new exhaust headers, new high flow catalytic converters, new mufflers, a new exhaust tip, new performance camshafts, modified cylinder heads and new high flow air filters.
The engine controls are reprogrammed to make ideal use of the individual modifications.
This powerful package is brought to perfection with optimized aerodynamics which enhances the stability of the mighty bull and bestows the car with an even more dynamic elegance. A newly developed and beautifully shaped rear wing with an adjustable lip completes the aerodynamics package.
A high-speed wheel and tire combination: 19 inch light alloy wheel set with special Continental high-speed tires: 225/35 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the front and 325/30 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the rear.
High performance exhaust system
A marvelous sound emanates from the edo competition stainless steel high performance exhaust system which includes a new exhaust tip. A new butterfly-valve control system - remote-controlled on request - is available, too. The more aggressive rear view is a great side-effect.
Drivetrain / clutch
edo competition has developed a new single disc clutch. Additionally the 4-wheel drive arrangement is turned into a 2-wheel drive setup. The LP 710 /2 is delivered with rear wheel drive. Weight savings of 40 kg (88 lb) and more agile handling are the result of this conversion.
All modifications are carried out exclusively at edo competition Motorsport GmbH in Ahlen.
