The entire exterior design with its aerodynamic components well accentuated, maintains the opinion that the shape of a Lamborghini is always given by functionality. The 2011 Lamborghini Murcielago benefits also from new rear view mirrors and new windscreen wipers to improve the aerodynamics while the Hermera wheel rims are made of light metal being equipped with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires.

The German tuning company, the well known Edo Competition, transformed the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 into a piece of art with the help of the international designer, Christian Augier. The result of their entire work is the Lamborghini LP710, an amazing and fast supercar.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Edo Karabegovic is a mechanic who worked for Ferrari and lives in a small village, northeast of Dortmund. Now he is retired and willing to take on massive projects that suppose transforming already exceptional cars in even more impressive and high-speed sports cars. In order to create the Lamborghini LP710, Edo used the Murcielago LP640 and removed only its standard hardware that powered the front wheels and the entire dynamic safety net. As a result the weight of the car was lowered with 88 pounds. Instead, he increased with 69 horsepower the power produced by the 6.5 liters V12 engine of the Murcielago with the help of the engine control unit. He also designed a new air intake, new exhaust headers, high-performance camshafts, high-flow catalytic converters, blueprinted cylinder heads and a stainless-steel exhaust system.
The Lamborghini LP710 is equipped with a complex rear wing which has a Gurney flap that can be adjusted and forged aluminum wheels equipped with Continental V-max tires. On the road the LP710 is amazing. The automatic manual transmission changes very easy the gear while the upgraded clutch mounted by Edo on this cool Lamborghini sends a jolt through the driver’s spine when he clicks the right-hand shift paddle. That’s why the driving experience is incredible and fearsome. What impresses even more is the noise made by the V12 engine of the LP710 which along with the lightweight exhaust system make you feel that Edo plugged the engine into an amp.
The LP710 is equipped with a two-wheel drive system and that’s why you must have some skills in order to be able to drive this fierce “beast”. Maybe because of its drive system this supercar became more intuitive and more fun to drive. But even if it sounds dangerous, the LP710 is equipped with high performance brakes and safety features. This cool Lamborghini goes from zero to 60 mph in only 3.2 seconds and you can reach 200 km/h in less than 10 seconds. When it comes to the top speed this supercar reaches 360 km/h (223.7 mph) making every speed fanatic pleased to drive the LP710.
If all that I described above made you think about buying one of the LP710 available, I must say that the look of this car will just be another argument that will convince you to do so. In fact, you can choose your own design. That’s because Christian Augier, an international designer, has developed five different looks, each one of the only 5 Lamborghini LP710 ever built reflecting one of those looks. So you should hurry to purchase one, because the edition is limited.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 interior
All the cars carry the sledgehammer touch of Christian Augier on the inside and on the outside. The customers can choose from a large range of themes and designs including the pirate life or the “sparking skull”. As a result you can be sure that you will own a unique supercar that will impress every sports car lover making him jealous. Not all of us can be blessed with such a beauty!
But this dream will cost you a little fortune: around $642,390, including an extra of $16,000 for each seat of the car. But nothing matters when it comes to your dreams and you will not be sorry if you buy one of these cool Lamborghinis.
The 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago is called LP640 because of the position and the power of the engine (Longitudinale Posteriore (LP) and 640 horsepower). It follows the “monstrous” design of the Murcielago and when you look at this supercar the front seems to say “more over” while the rear says “eat my exhaust”. A tough message, but we are used with the fierce “bulls” manufactured by Lamborghini and with their “spicy” prices.
2007 Lamborghini Murcielago
This 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago maintains the traditional style principles used by Lamborghini during its existence: purism, sport and function.

To make it more appealing, the 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago has incredible rear lights and a large aperture to cool the oil radiator. The best phrase that describes the 2007 Murcielago’s design is: functionality rules over the shape.
But moving to more serious business, you should know that the real “party” is under the hood where all the engine components were upgraded. The 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago is equipped with a 6.2 liters V12 engine displaced in a 60 degree angle. This “little baby” produces 640 horsepower.

They were redesigned to be more spacious and have head restraints that ensure more comfort for the driver and the passenger.

Here’s something you don’t hear everyday, a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 crashed into a Ferrari F430 at a South African VIP event in the town of KwaZulu-Natal.
But even though the nature of the crash is quite exotic, we haven’t gotten to the best part. It seems that the Lambo was being driving by a convicted hitman, which was charged with killing six people, and sentenced to 72 years in prison. He was subsequently pardoned, and even attended this political event without anyone saying anything.
But it seems he wasn’t too fond of the people who showed up after the crash and started taking pictures, as he reportedly began threatening and confiscated their mobile phones or cameras. Needless to say, when the police arrived on scene did nothing except call in the tow trucks for the wrecked supercars.
Thankfully a brave guy managed to score a few pics, and sent them to our friends at WreckedExotics.

Ebay has always been a great source for pretty interesting cars. For example, earlier today we had the Mini Cooper S owned by former Playmate Sara Jean Underwood and now here’s another cool find. This Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 replica is based on a 2009 Pontiac Solstice roadster and it has a starting price of $63,244. Under the hood, there’s a 325 hp 4 cylinder engine which takes the face Lambo from 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds. That’s pretty fast. I mean, not Lambo fast, but fast. I have to admit, the car looks pretty interesting, but I’d say it wouldn’t make any sense wasting that much money for a fake Lambo. There are tons of other awesome cars you could buy for that money. Also, check out two video after the jump.

British company Mayfair Prestige has put up for sale this special Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. Besides the fact that the car has received a special tuning treatment from Hamann, what’s really special about it is the chrome paint finish. But, of course, as you’d expect, it doesn’t come cheap at all, because Mayfair is asking £340,000 (about $625,000) for it. Will they get it? Of course, because there’s gotta be someone out there with a lot of cash and with the desire to show off. Check out more photos after the jump. (more…)
Last time German tuner Edo Competition messed up with the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, they managed to squeeze 23 hp more from the engine and, with a total of 663 hp, the car clocked 345.7 km/h (214.8 mph) on the test track in Nardo, Italy, which is the highest speed a Lamborghini ever reached. Despite all that, the guys over at Edo weren’t satisifed and decided to give it another upgrade. This time, they managed to increase the power output by 47 hp more, which means that the LP640 by Edo develops an impressive 710 hp and 700 Nm (516 ft-lb).
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is done in 3.2 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under seconds and the estimated top speed is 360 km/h (224 mph). The extra performance was possible through new exhaust headers, new high flow catalytic converters, new mufflers, a new exhaust tip, new performance camshafts, modified cylinder heads and new high flow air filters plus reprogrammed engine controls, plus.

You’d better be careful next time you complain the service is really far from your home, because it can be even worse. Take this ‘poor’ Sheik’s case. He had to fly his £190,000 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 (similar to the one from The Dark Night movie) all the way from Qatar to the UK for an oil change. The whole trip cost him £20,000, plus £3,552 to service at an approved dealer.
I know, the guy has too much money than he can spend, but you have to admit, that’s pretty cool. Of course, environmentalists don’t have the same opinion, because the whole ‘operation’ sparked fury from them. For example, here are a few statements from some very angry people:
Airport worker: “This car doesn’t have a carbon footprint – more of a crater.”
Cargo handler: “It would have been far more efficient to fly mechanics out there.”
Jenny Evans, of pressure group Plane Stupid: “This horrifies me. It is another example of how rich people exploit and pollute the planet because of their money.”
Friends of the Earth’s transport campaigner Richard Dyer: “Flying a car thousands of miles for a service is ludicrous when planes are one of the most polluting ways to transport goods. We urge the individual to get their car serviced closer to home.”
To be honest, what I really don’t understand is why the owner chose to do that? I mean, I suppose there are Lamborghini services in Qatar. Or maybe he only did it because he can?
