I found an article on this rather special looking Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster published at AutoEvolution.com … they listed it as a Murciélago LP670-4 SV on Rose Gold wheels … now that isn’t exactly right to be honest … and my first impression wasn’t correct either.
This Grigio Telesto Lamborghini on amazing looking PUR 6IX Monoblock Rose Gold wheels (13×20 inch at the back by the way) had me puzzled for a second too … I immediately noticed it wasn’t an LP670-4 Super Veloce for the simple fact it was a Roadster. Now I did create an LP670-4 Super Veloce Roadster … in 1/18 scale, but as far as I know this never made it into real life production, not even a one off.
Then I noticed the orange details … and the description on the front bumper … this looks like a limited edition Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster, the final production of this topless V12 flagship of which only 50 have been built, hence a very rare car indeed … but some things just didn’t add up after inspecting the photos in detail.
The orange painted sections look a bit too ‘Rose Gold’ to me, now that could be the post processing of the photos, so that wouldn’t be definite proof … but something else is: the engine cover. In fact the LP650-4 left the factory with the otherwise optional glass engine cover and this car has the regular, older Roadster engine cover.
Also there should be an LP650-4 script on the adjustable air intakes next to the engine cover too, and more importantly a lot of orange details in the interior … and this car doesn’t show any of these … instead I notice a large SV decal on the driver side … while on the passenger side this decal looks to be mirrored in fact … rather strange.
Still the overall impression with the very special shade of gold finished wheels from PUR is very good, sure it is different, but I for one prefer Rose Gold wheels over the bright green or red anodized shades that pop up lately … so yes this is another attention grabbing set of wheels on a car that really doesn’t need any help to draw attention to it … but still it looks nice, and that matters to people that take the tuning route on their Raging Bull.
