Murcielaga detail

Lamborghini Murcielaga

Developed in association with Audi, the Murcielaga appears as an evolution of the Diablo, with less complex, cleaner design. The unusual wing-like air scoops at the rear close flush with the body, which gives a clean bodyside reminiscent of the original Countach prototype.

The headlamp units with visible projector lamps gives a sophisticated and high-tech impression, and the geometric graphics of the front end are a fresh new approach for Lamborghini.

Overall, this looks like a return to the classic 'Countach' roots for Lamborghini, mixed with a good measure of modern design influences.

A 580bhp 6.2-litre V12, gives a maximum of more than 330kph and 0-100kph in 3.8 seconds.
