February 23, 2006 Spend an hour running your eyes over the Lamborghini Murcielago and you might find difficulty attempting to conceptualise doing it any differently. Yet all things must pass, and next week Automobili Lamborghini will present the "passionately developed evolution of the Lamborghini Murcielago Coupe" at the 76th International Car Show in Geneva. The new version features considerable innovation in terms of body design and mechanics. Its new name, Murcielago LP640, refers to the position its new 6.5 litre V12 engine - longitudinale posteriore - and to its power output of 640 bhp. Designers and engineers have not only focused on reworking the engine, suspension, gearbox, exhaust system, brakes and electronics, but also the interior and exterior design; improvements that retain the Murcielago LP640 positioning at the extremity of sports car performance and desirability. For those wishing to flaunt the gorgeous 60 degree V12 heart of their Murcielago LP640, an engine hood made of transparent glass is now available. The LP640will be available later this year.
