Spotted in China: Lamborghini Murcielago in Orange
Published on October 15, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
A very angry and very flashy Lamborghini Murcielago, seen on the Beijing Tuning Street in the east of the capital, parked next to a black Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. The LP 640 is painted in bright green and much further sexed up by extra carbon fiber parts, giant racy tires with 5-spoke alloys and red brake pads, and a big wing on the back.
Check that rear tire! Anything bigger won’t fit… Carbon lip on wing for extra-extra down force. Rear lights in black for more cool. Extra sorta wing sticking out below the air vents. Must be the work of some tuner, likely German, but I didn’t see any name or badge on the vehicle.
The Lamborghini Murcielago was made from 2001 until 2010, the LP 640 arrived in 2006 and ran until the end. Power came from a 6.5 liter V12 with 631hp and 660nm, good for a 340km/h top speed and a 3.0 sec 0-100. Speed of the Orange!
The Murcielago was only the first Lamborghini super car to be officially imported into China, the Diablo and Countach never made it to Chinese shores.
