A campaign to create a super sports car culture in China is gaining momentum. At the Beijing Auto Show, Lamborghini showed off an exclusive edition of the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. Only 10 units of this limited edition will be produced and will only be offered to China buyers.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., said that this special edition signifies Lamborghini's commitment to China. The Italian sports car maker has good reason to turn its attention to the Chinese market.
Last year, Automobili Lamborghini posted an 11% growth in China. On April 20, the company launched its seventh Automobili Lamborghini China dealership in Shenzhen.
The inauguration of its eighth showroom in Xiamen is expected to take place very soon. Winkelmann expressed pleasure at having been able to share his passion for the brand with China consumers.
The Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition is stunning with its orange stripe that symbolizes the power of an erupting volcano that adorns flat grey painted carbon shell of the car.
Lamborghini said that each car will have a badge that matches the name of its owner. The output of Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce's 6.5 liter V12 was raised to 670 hp and its weight was reduced by 100 kg (220 lbs).
It now boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. As a result, the car can go from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and is able to hit a top speed of 342 km/h.
