2006 LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO LP640

Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: ZHWBE37S07LA02519
Recorded Mileage: 21,500 kilometres (13,500 miles)

The successor to the vaunted Diablo and the first Lamborghini released under the parent company Audi, the Lamborghini Murciélago was first unveiled to the public at the Frankfurt Motor show in September of 2001. The straight translation of Murciélago in Spanish means "a bat', however the car's name followed Lamborghini's "Bull' theme and it belonged to a rather special bull that was so brave that the matador chose to spare its life. 

With 580 bhp on tap managed through a four-wheel drive system, this iteration of the Murciélago remained in production through 2005 before it was replaced by the Murciélago LP640.

In March 2006, Lamborghini unveiled an updated version the Geneva Motor Show; the Murciélago LP 640. The new title combined a designation to indicate the engine's orientation (Longitudinale Posteriore), along with the updated power output. The exterior received a noticeable facelift with revised front and rear fascias, and asymmetrical side air intakes, with the left side intake feeding an oil cooler. A new single outlet exhaust system incorporated into the rear diffuser, modified suspension system, revised programming, and upgraded clutch for the 6-speed "e-Gear" automated manual transmission with launch control rounded out the performance modifications. Interior seating was also re-configured in order to provide greater headroom, and a new stereo system formed part of the updated dashboard. Optional equipment included Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brakes, chrome paddle shifters and a glass engine cover. 

Manufactured in 2006 but registered to its first German owner on 21st April 2007, this early LP640 later found its way to the UK and into the ownership of a Lamborghini collector based in the South West of England. With our vendor since 2013, the Murcielago has been maintained in the workshop of his engineering firm and dry stored when not in use.

Showing c. 13,500 miles from new, the Murcielago is offered with a Lamborghini book pack and wallet, UK V5C, vehicle background report, previous bill of sale and bills for any items as required. The Lamborghini Murcielago is arguably the last “true” Lamborghini, and we are sure this low mileage example will be a rewarding acquisition for the next owner.
