Lamborghini Murcielago – History in the Making

The Lamborghini Murcielago is considered to be one of the best cars this automaker has ever built, and, as a confirmation to this statement, the manufacturer is determined to continue producing this model in 2012.

Murcielago was first introduced on the market in 2001, and its design became memorable due to its unique lines, its large front, and side intakes, and its scissor’s doors. These are the doors that make any Lamborghini stand out in a crowd and which have become the signature of this producer.

The intakes and the spoiler on the rear are computer-controlled and will automatically deploy at high speed to offer stability and also to better cool the brakes and the engine.

Lamborghini Murcielago – History in the Making

Cooling the engine is more than necessary, as the Lamborghini Murcielago has a 6.2L, V12 engine that originally produced 580 horsepower; but recent models develop more the 680 horsepower. The performance generated by this engine is stunning, as it can go from 0 to 60 in just under 4 seconds and can achieve incredible speeds.

But things can heat up under the rear bonnet, and that is why there are so many intakes on the car, which also gives it a bad-boy look. The manufacturer is so pleased with this model that it decided to continue producing it, but it is most likely that the 2012 Lamborghini Murcielago will have a different name.

Gets the name from a bull

Considering the fact that the Lamborghini Murcielago gets its name from the famous bull, whose life was spared by a torero after managing to survive 28 sword stabbings, it would be a pity to stop using this name. Still, as the manufacturer has accustomed us, the 2012 model will be named differently from its predecessor, with a name that surely rises up to its performance.

This car was built to be a part of history and, although it was released in 2001, it still looks as it came from the future; this can only mean that we are witnessing history in the making.

There are a lot of supercars on the market, one more powerful than the other, but the Lamborghini Murcielago manages somehow to stay on top. This is thanks to its design, design that makes any child want one and makes adults shed tears of joy when owning it.

Monster of the cars

It is a big toy that needs a good driver who can handle such a monster. Although anyone with a license can drive this car, only a few will understand what it means to be behind the wheel of a Murcielago. One can count on the fingers of one hand the cars that offer such thrills, and that is so challenging when driving.

Some people do bungee-jumping, others jump off planes, but there are those who like to get behind the wheel and enjoy a shot of adrenaline that can give chills to even the most experienced drivers.

The Lamborghini Murcielago is like a roller coaster that offers its passengers control over the speed of the ride, but it still requires almost crazy courage to drive it at its full potential. While you’re here read this awesome article on the Porsche Cayenne.
