Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce: The new king of the bulls

Lamborghini goes further into the extremes and presents the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce the new king of the bulls: even stronger, is lighter and faster. With the increase to 670 hp power of 6.5 liters huge V12 engine and a weight of 100 kilograms reached the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce a performance weight of only 2.3 kilograms per hp. This catapulted the classy Italians in just 3.2 seconds from standstill to 100 and reaches a top speed of 342 km / h. Due to its design shows clearly sharpened each copy to 350 copies of this limited series of potential at first glance.
Design and Aerodynamics

The Murciélago is a icon of the Lamborghini brand represents - a sporting device of Martial character and brutal force. Its unique design emits a unique form: broad, low, with much attention to the front cabin and a long, tense back. But even this character can still sharpen. This already shows the first impression of the completely redesigned front end.

The far-forward and pulled in matt black carbon spoiler is executed by two vertical bars with the front end connected. The large air intakes for the front brakes are more stressed, while the makers of the new front fenders for additional air brakes bleed placed. As the side skirts, painted Lamborghini Anströmöffnung for the oil cooler in the sill area of the driver's side in Matt Black.

Even more significant are the modifications to the engine compartment of the powerful Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. That's what the twelve-cylinder with a transparent engine hood in a completely new architecture: Hexagonal plastic sheets are made of transparent polycarbonate in three stages in a frame made of carbon used. For the thermal health of the high-performance engine continued to comb the Lamborghini to the rear open.

The impressive rear of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is dominated by a truly impressive, flat and very wide of the tailpipe exhaust system, and at the bottom of a two-diffuser system, which is completely in carbon fiber is manufactured. The tail lights with their lights in the Y-shape, since the Murciélago LP 640, Reventón Gallardo LP 560-4, and notes the Lamborghini design belongs.

Carbon is also the aperture between the lights. Below covers a large mesh venting from the rear, the Italians in the thick-walled aluminum exported - the hexagonal patterns are laser cut, a Teflon coating provides the necessary heat.
Completely re-designed the aerodynamics of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. In addition to the enlarged front and dual rear diffuser, the fixed rear spoiler an important role to play. The customer has the choice between two versions: In the small rear spoiler to improve the contact pressure at high speeds.

Alternatively, the "Aeropack Wing" mounted. It is a large, fixed carbon-fiber wing on two carbon fiber supports. The new aerodynamic benefits directional stability at high speeds significantly. With the small standard rear wing is the maximum speed of 342 km / h, with the big "Aeropack Wing" and the additional down force, it is 337 km / h top.

Bodywork and lightweight

The Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce emerged in lightweight construction. Thus, the structure of Lamborghini super sports car - like a race car - in a mixed design of high-strength carbon fiber parts and a steel tube frame. Central tunnel and floor are made of carbon, bonded and riveted to the steel frame. The roof and the Türaußenseiten is formed from sheet steel. The rest of the shell consists of carbon fiber composite material.

Through a new, high-strength steel for the pipes and a recalculation, Lamborghini achieved two goals: It is the torsional rigidity of the chassis by 12 percent, resulting in an even more precise driving sprübar makes. On the other hand, the Italians were the weight by 20 kilograms costs.

Consistent lightweight construction also runs through the entire body, the fenders, the rear side panels and the perimeter of the third stop in a modified carbon-fiber material - together with the removal of the drive for the movable spoiler brings another 13 kilogram reduction. Among the 33 kilogram weight reduction from the chassis and add exterior, 34 kilograms from the interior, and a further 33 kilograms, in the engine and drivetrain have been saved.

Engine and transmission

The longitudinally-built V12 engine with 6.5 liter engine with 670 horsepower delivers an even more times to 30 hp more power than the Murciélago LP 640th The enormous torque of 660 Nm, the twelve-cylinder lift at 6500 rpm at the crankshaft, while the rated power at 8,000 rpm is applied. If the engine requires more cooling air, drive stacks from the rear roof pillars, in sleep, they are flush in the body integrated.
A dry-sump lubrication allows the V12 in favor of the dynamic handling extremely deep must be installed. Furthermore, the dry sump lubrication also in extreme situations, vehicle dynamics a secure oil supply. The oil cooler sits in the left flank and wagon through the opening in the side sills with air.

A weight loss of over 26 kilograms in the area of the engine was mainly due to the completely new exhaust system. The silencer has been re-designed and even the powerful tailpipes of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce thanks to new materials is easier than the Murciélago LP 640th Above all, however, the new exhaust system for an acoustic experience that the vehicle in no way should be.
Mass is the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce the sequential automated gearbox e.gear, in which an electric hydraulic gear shift, the extremely fast and smooth worried. A display in the cockpit informs the driver via the gear used. In addition to a special "Corsa" mode, there is a "Low Adherence" (low adhesion)-mode. Alternatively, and at no extra charge, the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce with a manual six-speed available.

All-wheel drive and chassis

His extreme force brings the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce on a permanent four-wheel drive on the street. Before the rear wheels durchdrehen, sends the Visco clutch on an additional wave of up to 35 percent of the moments at the front axle. With its four driven wheels and the improved traction of the Murciélago secures the throttle at the end of a curve, the decisive advantage over rear-driven sports cars. 58 percent of its total weight is on the rear axle - a distribution which is very favorable to the traction effect.

Prior obstacles, such as garage entrances, you can watch the front car with the standard lift system to raise by 45 millimeters. The Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce to pay the special forged aluminum lightweight wheels "Ares", designed in an exclusive five double-spoke design. The front tires are 245/35 the format, the dimension of the rear 335/30. Especially handy sport type tires Pirelli P Zero Corsa is standard.

Four-wheel brakes, from a high-tech ABS controlled, if necessary, provide for a delay with extreme violence. The carbon-ceramic brakes are larger channels in the body from cooling airstream coated, openings in the front fenders make the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce for additional ventilation. In addition, the ceramic discs easier to remain free from fading and achieve high mileage.
Interior and Equipment

The upward opening doors - a solution that Lamborghini early 1970s for the legendary Countach developed - can unlock the door to small, swinging wide and open view of the sumptuous interiors of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The interior is dominated, as well as carbon fiber and Alcantara create an equally high quality as sporty puristic ambience.

Sport bucket seats with a particularly intensive support in the hip and shoulder area, there are ex works. The seat shells made from lighter and Lamborghini stable carbon. As an option, the standard of the Murciélago seats available at no extra charge.
In black Alcantara microfibre Lamborghini covered the seats, the cockpit and the inner sky. Optical shows the mesh refinement in the Y-pattern seats and sky, here is a second material in the color of the exterior paintwork untergelegt. Of course, the interior also provides its contribution to weight loss: How are the carbon Türinnenseiten disguises, as well as the broad resources tunnel.

The use of Alcantara leather instead saves further weight, as well as the choice of the sports bucket seats, or the waiver of the radio-navigation system (available on special request). Finally, the music of the Murciélagos in the engine. Overall, the changes in the cockpit of more than 34 kilograms of "diet" of the Murciélago LP SuperVeloce at 670-4.

Available is the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce in the paint colors "Giallo Orion, Arancio Atlas," "Bianco Isis, Grigio Telesto," Nero Aldebaran, "to" Bianco Canopus (matt white) and "Nero Nemesis ( Matt Black).
