Each year Lamborghini models are customized by important high-tech, specialized companies and transformed into even more exclusive and unique supercars. One of these companies is IMSA, a well known German High-Tech Engineering specialist which transformed the 2008 Murcielago LP640 into an exquisite sports car desired by those who love luxurious and fast cars. The IMSA Company offers to each customer the opportunity to be part of the creation of its new Lamborghini. In addition, this company customizes each Lamborghini model respecting the highest German standards of quality and precision.
After introducing the incredible IMSA GTV Supercar based on all the Gallardo models, this company used its high performance technology and its design-enhancement program to create another incredible sports car, using as inspiration the 2008 Murcielago LP640. The company used the technology and the design package especially used for the Formula1 cars and some other motorsports series. The main idea of the IMSA was to offer an exclusive product line for those interested in owning a Murcielago both technically and optically unique. They desired to turn this Lamborghini model in a world exclusive acquisition. As a result, the customers have the opportunity to drive an amazing supercar known as the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago GTR.
All the IMSA components are made of carbon-onsight and they can be painted in the color desired by the customer. This aerodynamic-enhancement-program was used for the first time in 2007. In pursuit of its main goal, the IMSA Company invested in a more aggressive and aerodynamic shape of the front spoiler which is now perfectly aligned to the wheel arches and has become more visible. The exterior design is completed by the minor power bump, the up-rated wheels and the incredible tires chose for this Lamborghini model.
The upper side of the wheel arches suffered some changes because of the new IMSA CFK air ducts which were perfectly integrated in the car’s body. As a result, the drag effect was significant reduced because of the non-aerodynamic airflow. Another improvement of the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago GTR are the IMSA side-skirts placed on the underside which guarantee the optimum airflow because of the perfect interaction between the IMSA diffuser and the IMSA rear spoiler. As a result, this Lamborghini model achieves lower down force at incredible high speeds, while the driver enjoys the same incredible driving experience without losing the driving stability. Moreover, despite the high speeds the driver is still safe and able to enjoy the ride.
Under the hood, the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago GTR is equipped with a 6.5 liters V12 engine just like the standard Murcielago. This engine is able to produce 640 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and features a six-speed manual transmission. That’s way this Lamborghini model can go from zero to 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds while the maximum speed is of 205 mph. That’s fast enough for me!
The interior of the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago GTR is as exceptional as the exterior of this supercar. To achieve this, the IMSA technical program engineers decided to include a central locking system, personalized tailor-made interiors and a lot of multi-media applications. All these interior and engineering components and optional features are available and can be installed on this Lamborghini model depending on the customer’s requests.
Lamborghini Murcielago GTR Spyder
If you are interested in the Roadster version of the Murcielago, you should know that IMSA also designed the Lamborghini Murcielago GTR Spyder which is equipped with a powerful engine able to produce 708 horsepower. With a top speed of 350 km/h and an incredible exterior design, this Lamborghini model is another great choice for any speed addicted.
