    My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    She's home!
    Here is a short first review and some pictures ... quality isn't that great ... more (and better) will follow later!

    My Gallardo Spyder was delivered to its new owner last week so for the last week I have been driving my Ruf Rt12 cab. Going from the Porsche to the Murci was pretty extreme. It's hard to comprehend the sheer size of this thing, especially because it only measures 41.73 inch in height (soft top removed).

    The Ceramic Brakes are phenomenal! They work so much better than the ones on the Gallardo, on the LP640 you actually connect to the brakes and they don't just bite at the last part (like the ones from the Superleggera).
    I can't say much about acceleration etc as the car is still in break-in period.

    E-gear is a lot smoother than the one from my MY07 Gallardo Spyder. As it is it feels a bit too soft but that is easily corrected by the dealer (I did the same thing on my Gallardo). I like it much better when the throttle feels sharper.
    I haven't been able to test the new Corsa mode either (due to the break-in period again).

    'Seat in the pants': Beyond words. I already felt something remotely similar when switching from a Porsche 996 turbo cab to a Gallardo Spyder but this is something entirely different!
    It's like entering a completely new world!

    The sound my Gallardo produced was quite a bit louder a lot deeper (raw). The LP640 has a specific V12 tone and I'm sure that will only improve when I can go WOT.
    After its first maintenance at 2500km I will have the dealer perform the exhaust valve mod.

    Here are some pictures, let's start with its custom silver logo:

    So sexy. Congratulations.
    I could probably afford to fill up the tank once before I had to take out a home mortgage the way gas prices are lately.

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    She looks so great, very mean in black and the black/orange of the interior gives it a nice touch.

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Nice garage my friend!!

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY20

    Gorgeous.

    Your Rt12 is an absolute monster, and yet you're still amazed by the LP640... How incredible that machine must be!

    Anyway, congratulations.

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY20

    another dream garage from a rennteam member.


    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY20

    Congrats Rami! Glad you finally got it! I didn't think it would have arrived so soon already

    The sound is going to be amazing once the engine is run in! I can't even imagine! My car sounds already like a wailing banshee at WOT with the stock system and a ROOF over my head Enjoy buddy!

    PS. I queried about the exhaust valve mod at my dealer a few months ago, they said the LP needs the back pressure at low-revs for torque. He didn't recommend removing it.

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY20

    Amazing car. Great colour combo too. Enjoy in good health!

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY20

    Tremendous interior, thanks for the pics.

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    It is a fabuloue looking car. I have no idea how you would go from the Murci to the Porsche to drive. After the Murci, the Porsche looks so pedestrian.

    BTW, is putting the top down on the MUrci as complicated as reported?

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    beautiful, enjoy in good health

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Nice toys.....

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Wow Rami - just STUNNING!!

    I can't wait for the run-in report and how the speed compares to your Ruf

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Just in case people haven't seen this before, here's Clarkson's review in his 'supercar showdown' video:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=oBWhFegqwk0&feature=related

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Thx guys

    To answer a few questions:
    Spoed: Bedankt I have the carbon hardtop roof on order yes, it should be here in about a month or so.

    Mike S: For me the sound is a bit dissapointing but that has all to do with the fact that my Gallardo produced a truly amazing sound with the larini bypass pipes. Especially in the lower rpms. I can't wait to go WOT (still 2200km break in period ahead) and experience the full force of the engine and sound!
    Concerning the valve mod, Simon George from EVO magazine had this mod done to his LP640 and he seems to be very happy with it. No issues whatsoever. He takes his car to the track regularily so I would think that a loss of torque is not really an option for him?

    nberry: Stepping out of the Murci and into the Porsche is like going from an Audi A8 to a Mini, it's just ridiculous. But then again, it does show how good Porsche is in producing a true DD-sportscar.
    The top isn't easy but it isn't rocket science either. Programs like TopGear and stuff simply make it look like that in order to bring entertaining television. When you have put it on and off a few times you can get the job done in 5-10 minutes.

    Alex: I'm pretty sure the Ruf will destroy it

    Re: My Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster (MY2009)

    Ramirez,
    Simply stunning! I thought it wouldn't get any better when I saw your PSI bozster a couple of years ago on the parking place of Spa during the porsche days... Then there was the Gallardo, the RUF cab, and now the LP640... Dreamcars, every one of them. The pics look awesome, have fun!
