Sant’agata bolognese (italy), 8. November 2010 – A sports car legend is retiring: the last murcielago rolled off the assembly line at lamborghini’s main plant in sant’agata bolognese, italy, in mid-may 2010. The in "arancio atlas" lacquered LP 670-4 superveloce has the production number 4099 and was delivered to switzerland. The murcielago is the most built lamborghini twelve-cylinder of all time.
Meeting of icons
On the 5th. November 2010, the end of murcielago production was celebrated in the factory with an exhibition of the V12 models from four decades. Then the lambo legends such as the 350 GT, the miura, the countach and the diablo accompanied the last murcielago as farewell. The super sports car presented in 2001 initially carried a V12 with a displacement of 6.2 liters and 580 hp in front of the rear axle. The power increased over 640 hp to up to 670 hp in the superveloce, or SV for short. The SV pushes to 100 km / h in just 3.2 seconds, and propulsion only ends at 342 km / h.
The successor starts in 2011
In the murcielago the central tunnel and the floor are made of carbon fiber, the same applies to parts of the skin. This lightweight construction philosophy is to be further developed in the successor to the murcielago announced for 2011. The sesto elemento study at the 2010 paris motor show gave an initial outlook.
