The 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago is a two seats car and even if it looks less bold than the Lamborghini Diablo it’s still a masterpiece of car designer.
The 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago’s look reminds you of the Countach’s strange look, because of the angular shape accentuated by lush curves. This Lamborghini has a wedge shaped profile as the Diablo, but features an incredible cockpit integrated into the body creating the idea of a whole. The gull-wing doors complete the look. The entire body is made of carbon fiber, except the steel roof and the door panels. This Murcielago is equipped with wheels made from aluminum and Pirelli tires which are wider at the rear. The door’s opening angle is better than the one of the Diablo and because of the lower chassis entering and exiting in and out of the car is much easier.

The exterior is improved by the bi-xenon headlights and the outside mirrors than can be folded electronically and are placed on long arms allowing the driver to have a larger visibility. To help cooling the fierce engine placed under the hood, this car has a lot of visible air intakes. Moreover, two of these intakes, placed at the rear, use the Variable Airflow Cooling System that maintains the same aperture when the driving conditions change. An interesting feature of the 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago is the movement of the rear spoiler into three different positions.
When you get inside the 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago, you are impressed by the attention paid to the comfort of both the driver and the passenger.

Moreover, the instrumentation is placed on an electronically controlled dashboard. An optional feature is the satellite-based navigation system.
If the interior makes you feel comfortable and ready for a ride, the fierce “bull” hosted under the hood makes you feel alive. The $280,000 Murcielago is equipped with a 6.2 liters V12 engine that produces no more and no less than 571 horsepower.

The first six-speed manual transmission equips this Murcielago along with a drive by wire electronic throttle control system. The suspension used on the Murcielago is similar to the one used for the Diablo with upper and lower control arms. Furthermore, it is equipped with a traction control system needed for extreme driving.
