Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce 

  • $450k built in Italy
  • 2009
  • 661 HP 6.5L
  • 212 mph
Turn-in is sharp and linear, with good steering feel (love that small, suede-wrapped wheel...) and the AWD helps the front end stay pinned.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
The LP640 Roadster combines the LP640 coupe's technical and design updates with the al fresco style of the previous Murcilago Roadster.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

But as you can imagine, 631 horsepower-and a not insignificant 487 pound-feet of torque at 6000 rpm-didn't come without effort.
by MotorTrend (Jul, 2006)
This mighty lump now churns out 661 American horsepower (or 670 European ponies, hence the name) at a howling 8000 rpm and 487 pound-feet of torque at 6500 rpm.
by MotorTrend (Jul, 2009)
So when it's working with the bodywork's combination of aerodynamic downforce and ground effects at speeds of 75 mph and higher, the SuperVeloce feels fairly painted to the pavement.

Powertrain

Symphony for the devilFiguring that it would represent a slightly easier baptism on Tuscany's Mugello race circuit, I opted for an LP640 with the six-speed e-gear sequential manual (paddle-shift) transmission.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
As a no-cost option, owners can opt for a six-speed manual gearbox should they desire.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2009)
And because you never quite manage that, you never feel you've got the best from this engine.

Engine

Lamborghini has taken a line from Ferrari, putting the new 640-horse V-12 under glass for your viewing pleasure.
by MotorTrend (May, 2006)
Wheel and taillight designs are new, as are the slats over the engine and a host of other details.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
Apart from the lack of a fixed roof, the Murcielago roadster is identical to the coupe right down to the 572 horsepower V12 under the hood and full-time all-wheel drive.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)

Body style

The Roadster was designed as an open car and is best enjoyed that way.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
As if a Lamborghini, any Lamborghini, weren't enough of a statement, the LP640 Roadster clearly affirms that its buyers value outrageousness, extraordinary performance and tousled hair, not necessarily in that order.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
Like the closed version, the asymmetrical sides of the LP640 Roadster incorporate uniquely sized scoops for the intake air on the right and the oil cooler on the left.

Interior

Quite the contrary: the suede-and-leather-trimmed cockpit looks almost as lavish as the one in the silly-money Reventón.
by AutomobileMag (Dec, 2012)
The LP640 interior is treated to quality switchgear and cowhide with lozenge-shaped stitching, and a hefty Kenwood stereo/sat-nav screen.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
The 2007 Roadster version of the 2006 Murciélago LP640 is largely hand-constructed of steel, carbon fiber and leather; packs a 640-horsepower midmounted V12; and runs to 60 mph in a claimed 3.4 seconds on the way to a top speed of 205 mph — 0.1 second and 7 mph slower than the fixed roof version.
