    Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    From 4Car:

    Quote:
    Impossibly low, ridiculously wide, a small cabin pushed out to the nose followed by miles and miles of engine, all wrapped in lyrca-tight carbonfibre. The Murcielago LP640 has vicious looks, rabid performance and intimidating presence: it's the way supercars should look.



    Quote:
    Even at low speeds, the LP460 bristles with anger and aggression. It feels edgy and alive, straining to be unmuzzled. Squeeze the throttle and that 640bhp is unleashed to give instantaneous acceleration, hurling corners towards you with a PlayStation-like rush. The noise from gaping exhaust is guttural and thunderous at low revs, barking and snorting in the mid-range, and just mental above 6,000rpm, a three-dimensional banshee that shreds the air apart. And after a run, the LP640 spews out hot air from every orifice.



    Quote:
    I've never been so filled with addictive fear as I have driving this car. Lamborghini's new Murcielago LP640 is a proper supercar - the kind I used to read about and lusted after as a 12-year-old. Big, brutish, loud, tricky, unfeasible quick and just jaw-slackeningly good-looking, it's totally over the top and goes like it looks.

    It looks great in white! Like a shark.

    For the LP640 I think a manual would be the best choice,
    E gear might not match up well with the brutal spitit of the car.

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    As much as I like Lamborghinis (my 1st supercar ever) nobody seems to be addressing their massive 1,800+kg weight!

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    Thats the only thing I can't get over with this car. Imagine if it weighed the same as a CGT or Enzo!

    It won't be much slower. 11 seconds 0-200 km/h. The old one did 0-300 km/h in 37 seconds, I suspect this will do it in 30 flat.

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    amazing car ,i'll take it over an enzo or a cgt anytime..its the most agressive car design i have ever seen..

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    It's an amazing car with great looks,
    but the one thing that bothers me is the
    exhaust. I liked the 2 pipes more I guess...

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    Damn, that white LP640 looks GOOD!!

    I wonder if I should not reconsider with my order....

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    In the article it says the car weighs 1665kg? That with a fuel or empty fuel tank?

    - white does look very good on this car
    - it is quite original for a Lambo
    - yellow Lambo's all over the place...

    consider white a better choice !

    I assume that you mean Pearl White, like on the Gallardo Spyder I posted pictures of, or do you mean white white?

    Pearl white looks fantastic IMO.

    I'm embaressed to say the least, but yes Delivery is December/January

    I love those new sport seats in the orange Murcie!

    The front of the car will look good with any colour. I'm just not sure I would like the rear's contrast so much with the black diffuser and red lights with orange or green?

    And nobody mention the fact that the chassis is the same as we can found on the 10 years old Diablo....The Murcie is one of the best looking and aggressive supercar ever, but it's a shame to say that it's one of the worst driving experience of my life!

    No, you're not And you like the 599 GTB don't you... (You will after I scan the EVO test of it)

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    Temm did that EVO have a test of he new Turbo also? If so could you PLEASE scan it when you scan the 599gtb article. Thanks a million!

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    Butt of course they did

    "What's in it for me, I really gotta know. What's in it for me, this ain't no one man show...."
    (No problem, I'll scan both this weekend)

    Re: Driving Impression: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

    If I had a scanner I'd scan the newest American Car mag tests, but it seems that no one on this forum likes them. Thanks again Temm, your work is apreciated.
