The Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster benefits from the same extensive modifications to the bodywork and mechanics as the LP640 Coupé, as well as delivering its own distinct character.
In their re-interpretation of the Roadster, the designers of the Lamborghini Centro Stile have remained true to the original style principles of purism, sportiness and functionality. As with the Coupé it has now assumed a more aggressive appearance, a substantial influence being the new front and rear bumpers. On the latter there is a new rear diffuser, in which the Exhaust system is integrated within a tailpipe. The rear lights are also new, increasing the distinguishing features and making the Murciélago Roadster as unmistakable at night as in daylight. The asymmetrical design of the sides is particularly striking. Whilst the area behind the air inlet on the right is almost closed, on the left there is a large opening for the ventilation of the oil cooler. This, in addition to the aerodynamic form of the front and rear, is an illustration of how functionality dictates the shape of a Lamborghini.
Changes to the rear-view mirror make the Murciélago Roadster more aerodynamic, with other features including new windscreen wipers and the option of new Hermera alloy wheels.
From its forerunner, the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster LP640 has inherited the characteristic asymmetrical interior arrangement. The whole interior is tailored to the driver and arranged in such a way that a true driver-focused experience is offered; a car which challenges yet at the same time is entirely geared to the driver. This is illustrated in the use of perforated leather for the chair cushions, the dashboard tunnel console and the door lining on the driver's side.
The instrument panel has also been redesigned with different display graphics. This includes a new Kenwood car radio with a 6.5 inch widescreen monitor and reader for DVD, MP3 and WMA. The navigation system (standard equipment in Japan) is also available as an option.
Like its predecessor, the Murciélago LP640 Roadster can be customised through special equipment packages. The 'ad personam' individualisation program offers even more scope to create a personal, unmistakeably individual sports car.
As with the Coupé the new 6.5 litre (6.496 cm3) 60° V-engine and 640 PS (471 kW) at 8,000 min-1 is now used also in the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster. At 6,000 min-1 the 12-cylinder engine reaches the maximum torque of 660 Nm. Naturally the Lamborghini Murciélago meets all the current valid European and North American emission standards.
The increased power naturally leads to increased road performance. The maximum speed now lies at 330 km/h compared to 320 km/h. The standard sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is now reached by the Murciélago LP640 Roadster in an excellent 3.4 seconds making it 0.4 seconds faster than its forerunner.
The engineers also focused their attention on optimising the torque band. The driveability of the engine thus benefits from the use of a continually variable timing system (intake and Exhaust side) and engine management with Drive-by-Wire-System.
In order to meet the increased thermal requirements of the engine, the engineers built a larger oil cooler. On the exterior this is illustrated by a larger air inlet on the left wing of the vehicle. The liquid cooler on the other hand remains unchanged with the Lamborghini VASC System (variable geometry air inlet system). Additional electronically controlled air scoops open according to the outside temperature and cool air requirement. This guarantees maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
1971 Lamborghini Miura SV
My All Time Favourite Car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lamborghini Miura is a sports car produced by Italian automaker
Lamborghini between 1966 and 1972. The car is widely considered to have
begun the trend of high performance, two-seater, mid-engined sports cars.
While the mid-engined layout had been used successfully in competition in
cars such as the Ford GT40 and Ferrari 250 LM at Le Mans, the Miura was the
first viable road car sporting the layout.
The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini's engineering team, who
designed the car in their spare time against the wishes of company founder
Ferruccio Lamborghini, who showed a preference towards producing powerful
yet sedate grand touring cars, rather than the racecar-derived machines
produced by local rival Ferrari. When its rolling chassis was presented at
the 1965 Turin auto show, and the prototype P400 debuted at the 1966 Geneva
show, the car received a stellar reception from showgoers and motoring
press alike, who were impressed by Marcelo Gandini's sleek styling as well
as the car's revolutionary design. As Lamborghini's halo car, the Miura
received periodic updates and remained in production until 1972, and was
not replaced in the automaker's lineup until the Countach entered
production in 1974, amidst tumultuous financial times for the company.
Review: 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP64
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.
The new version of this highly successful super-sports car features
considerable innovations in terms of body design and mechanics. And also
with a new name: Murcielago LP640, which refers to its engine position -
longitudinale posteriore - and to its power 640 hp. Designers and engineers
have not only focused on reworking the engine, suspensions, gearbox, Exhaust system, brakes and electronics,
but also the interior and exterior design; improvements that make the
Murciélago LP 640 the most extreme and fastest sports car in its class,
placing it at the very top.
custom murcielago Lp640 roadster GODLY acceleration sound. TUBI!!!!

slightly before he accelerated, making one of the best sounds i have ever
heard from a car! it was so insane, and the spot of the summer for me. i
also love the "venom" liscence plate :D the owner also owns a yellow ford
GT with custom wheels, and a black ford GT with custom wheels. my friend
made a good point about this car, it looked like a stealth bomber when it
was accelerating away! remember to rate, comment, and subscribe for more

Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640-4 Roadster (Gotham Dream Car Tour 2010)
NJExoticSpotters went on the Gotham Dream Car Tour on August 24, 2010 and
recorded footage within the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640-4 Roadster
during the third leg of the tour. We had a blast tearing it up on the
roads of Bear Mountain and the highway.
