2004 LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO SERIES 1!
The Lamborghini Murciélago is a sports car produced by Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini between 2001 and 2009.
Successor to the Diablo and flagship V12 of the automaker’s lineup, the Murciélago was introduced as a coupé in 2001.
The car was first available in North America for the 2002 model year.
The manufacturer’s first new design in eleven years, the car was also the brand’s first new model under the ownership of German parent company Audi, which is owned by Volkswagen.
The Murciélago is designed by Peruvian-born Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini’s head of design from 1998 to 2005.
A roadster variant was introduced in 2003, followed by the more powerful and updated LP 640 coupé and roadster and a limited edition LP 650–4 Roadster.
The final variation to wear the Murciélago nameplate was the LP 670–4 SuperVeloce, powered by the largest and final evolution of the original Lamborghini V12 engine.
Production of the Murciélago ended on 5 November 2010, with a total production run of 4,099 cars. Its successor, the Aventador, was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
In a continuation of Lamborghini’s tradition of naming its cars after stars from the world of bullfighting, the Murciélago is named after a fighting bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight against Rafael “El Lagartijo” Molina Sánchez, at the Coso de Los califas bullring in Córdoba, Spain.
Murciélago fought with such passion and spirit that the matador chose to spare its life, a rare honor. The bull, which came from Joaquin del Val di Navarra’s farm, was later presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura, a noted local breeder.
The Murciélago is an all-wheel drive, mid-engine sports car. With an angular design and an exceptionally low slung body, the highest point of the roof is just under 4 feet (1.2 m) above the ground.
One of the vehicle’s most distinguishing features is its scissor doors which lend to the extreme image.
The First-generation of the Murciélago was produced between 2001 and 2006 and was powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company’s beginnings in the 1960s.
The rear differential is integrated with the engine itself, with a viscous coupling centre differential transferring power to the front wheels.
The total power distribution is 70 percent at the rear and 30 percent at the front. Power is delivered through a 6-speed manual transmission.
The suspension utilised in the car uses an independent double-wishbone design, and the bodywork mostly features carbon fibre except for the steel roof and aluminium scissor doors.
The active rear wing and the active air intakes integrated into the car’s shoulders are electromechanically controlled, deploying automatically only at high speeds in an effort to maximise both aerodynamic and cooling efficiency.
The interior was also made more comfortable and ergonomic than its predecessor sporting a simple and clean look with all the major controls along with the gearshift knob integrated into the central tunnel.
