Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Superveloce review

         More power and weight savings are nice for straight line speed and on specification sheets, but where Lamborghini has perhaps fallen behind nontraditional record holders like Nissan and Chevrolet has been in the handling department. The SuperVeloce seeks to change all that, combining front and rear variable limited slip differentials with an AWD system that is all about the track.

        The LP670-4 SuperVeloce is the lightest, most powerful, fastest Murcielago ever built. Yet it allows us mortals to tip-toe closer to the very edge of its truly volcanic performance envelope than any big-banger Lambo in history. If any $450,000, 661-horsepower, 212-mph, hip-high wedge of weapons-grade testosterone could ever be called a pussycat, this is it. Well, up to a point.

        The Murcielago is an icon of the Lamborghini brand - a sports machine of menacing character and brutal power. Its unique design radiates a supreme form of highly concentrated sensuality. Wide, low, with its glass area pushed way forward and a long, taut back - the interplay between the soft contours of the basic form and razor sharp edges is the perfect expression of the Lamborghini design language.
