Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Review
Are you ready for a Super Car that can Rock An Roll? Do you want to feel the wind in your hair? If so than I have the perfect Super Car For you!
The first Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster was released in the 2005 Murcielago line up, but the latest version the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster that is capable of going from 0 to 60 in about 3.4 seconds is the one we are concerned about. This enhanced version of the Murcielago Roadster was first released in the 2007 model. It almost looks pretty much like the coupe version of the Murcielago except for the addition of cooling vents behind the air
intakes, and a retractable canvas roof.The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster exterior also features the wonderful scissor doors, side air scoops that automatically open up at speed, a rear spoiler that can be adjusted to an angle of 70 degrees, folding side mirrors for increased aerodynamics, and electronic Launch Control are also included. Inside the interior has been changed just slightly from the standard coupe, and the body structure has also been reinforced to compensate for a lack of a solid roof panel.
Hiding under the hood of the mid engine Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster you will find an awesome 631 horsepower, 487 pound-feet of torque 6.5-liter V12 engine that greatly improves the performance of the original Murcielago Roadster. When all of the horsepower of this 6.5 liter V12 is let loose, the six-speed manual or six-speed automated manual transmission connecting to the standard all-wheel-drive does it’s best to keep the power to the ground.
The LP640 Roadster does not have too many competitors in its class. The Mercedes-Benz SLR Roadster might be considered a competitor to the LP640 Roadster, but it costs nearly $150,000 more. Ferrari unfortunately doesn’t sell any roadsters with any where near the kind of power that the Mercielago LP640 produces, and Aston Martin’s DB9 Volante also has considerably less horsepower, almost 200 less horsepower. This kind of places the LP640 Roadster pretty much in a class of it’s own.
