Beijing Auto Show: Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Edition

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

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.

Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV China Edition

Limited to only ten cars worldwide, the special edition Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is designed and manufactured exclusively for China's most discriminating super sports car enthusiasts. An orange stripe, symbolising the strength of an erupting volcano, decorates the flat grey painted carbon shell of the Murciélago. Every model holds a numeration badge with the name of its owner.

The Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is one of the most fascinating super sports cars of all times. The exceptionally purist and even more extreme top model - the Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce - is even more powerful, lighter and faster than the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640. With the output of the 6.5 liter V12 increased to 670 hp and a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. It vaults itself from zero to 100 km/h in just 3,2 seconds and hits top speed at 342 km/h.

With its outstanding performance, razor-sharp precision and exceptional high-speed stability, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is the ultimate performance car for advanced sports car drivers. In order to achieve the substantial weight reduction of 100 kilograms (220 lbs), the Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce was extensively reworked and redeveloped in virtually every aspect - from chassis to engine and transmission, right through to the interior. The increase in engine output from 640 to 670 hp is the result of optimized valve timing and a reworked intake system. The significantly modified aerodynamics with substantially increased downforce brings considerable improvement to vehicle stability at very high speeds. The large "Aeropack Wing" and its added downforce give a top speed of 337 km/h (209 mph).
