Checking Out the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640:
Do you love Super Cars? Well if you do then you just have to check out the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640! This Awesome new Lamborghini can really Rock and Roll! With two different body choices available. You can choose between a standard coupe or a convertible roadster. Although the roadster is not really a convertible, it is more like a targa top.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe -
The standard Murcielago LP640 coupe comes with the standard 6.5 liter V12 that pumps out an amazing 632 horsepower and a stum pulling 660 foot pounds of tourqe. To be able to put all that power to the ground takes one heck of a drivetrain.
When you buy the standard coupe you have the choice between the paddle shifted 6 speed e-gear automated clutch manual transmission or the standard Lamborghini 6 speed manual transmission with a gated metal shifter. Also standard on the Murciélago LP640 coupe is all wheel drive, along with front, center, and rear limited slip differentials.
So what does this all meen? It meens 0 to 60 times in the low to mid 3 second range, and a Super Car top speed of 211 miles per hour!
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster -
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster is for the person who has money to burn and wants to feel the wind blowing through their hair at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour. When you decide to buy the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster it tacks on an additional $33,000 onto the base price of the standard Murcielago LP640 Coupe. Then if you figure in options, and let me tell you there are a lot of options available. It is very easy to drop another $60,000 or more before you walk out the dealers door!
really is not much different than the standard coupe. It looks pretty much the same. It even has the wonderful head turning scissor doors, but there are a few minor differences. There are additional cooling vents behind the air intakes, and a retractable canvas roof are the main differences. Performance is fairly comparable with the standard coupe. The canvas roof panel is only meant for driving around at normal speeds, and should never be installed when you want to do those high speed runs down the road. It is just made of thin canvas and the back pressure from high speeds has the possibility of sucking off the car.
Overall I don't think it matters whether you pick the coupe or the roadster. Any Super Car that is capable of going 211 miles an hours is a winner in my book!
