W ie the one on 350 copies limited twelve-cylinder super sports car is ticking away, the test reveals.

Super Veloce is the synonym for sporty privileged Lamborghini - in the shadow of the Grim Reaper. Because when the boys in Sant ’Agata stick on the SV, the death bell for the model series will soon ring.

Subtle Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 appearance

That was the case with the Miura, in whose rear a 60-degree V12 toiled for the first time, and a quarter of a century later with Diablo. Shortly afterwards, the Murciélago appeared, continuing the diabolical saga. In 2001 it was presented in the middle of the lava of the erupting volcano Etna, accompanied by the aura of the seven deadly sins. In contrast, the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 appearance at auto motor and sport subtle. Here a car transporter gives birth to him in a very mundane way by ramp. Careful, after all, despite its hydraulic front lift (45 millimeters), the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 shouldn't scratch the covered underbody and the new, far forward front spoiler in matt carbon. This distinguishes the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4, limited to 350 copies, from the series as well as the exhibited side air inlets and the rear section with Brachial diffuser, maxi exhaust and wing.

consumption of 26 liters in the test

After a total of 1,765 kilograms were pressed by the Pirelli P-Zero Corsa on the warm asphalt, the carbon-fiber steel body shone in the sun, the intake manifolds of the V12 shimmered through the louvred hood with the hexagonal windows, come on, the dark thoughts. That it could all be over soon, the V12 is already stuck in Snow White's coffin. Because, don't even think about it, the anger of the monster, which has grown to 670 hp, could hit you. Scurrying too close to the air inlets once, the 6.5-liter inhales all the wicked with its more permissive airways, pulls them through its 24 inlet valves (with increased lift), throws them up to the twelve pistons to be eaten. Just like he does with gasoline. Greedy,voluptuous, some claim - in view of the almost 26 liter test consumption - even excessive.

Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 attracts envious glances

Whoops, we already have four sins. Envy remains. It's not long in coming. Whether cell phone paparazzi, traffic light duelists or business travelers in a station wagon company car. You can read her mind through her eyes. You don't want to look over. But you must. Stare, pause. Now, at the wheel, don't give in to arrogance. The Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 is lurking for this. Whether threading through the scissor doors into the interior or the possible shunting embarrassment that the confusing, two-meter-wide body provokes as well as its exposed rim and body horns. You would like to push yourself off every curb. In keeping with the namesake, the fighting bull that the torero Molina left alive at the request of the audience after 24 lance hits. Out of respect.

In 3.3 seconds to 100 km /h

You have to work for that at SV. Its ergonomics alone mean submission. He's the boss. With its idiosyncratic seating position and contour, the crude operation, the confusion and the wheel arches protruding far into the interior, forcing the passengers into an asymmetrical posture. In the bustling city center, the wellness factor tends towards zero, so up the country road - and into the next problem: people go where they look. In case of doubt, direction Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4. Concentration and willingness to react are constant companions in the pulpit. Fortunately, the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 dominates the role of the escape helper, roars out of the danger zone with one leap if necessary, and quickly makes meters on winding slopes (0-100 km /h: 3.3 s).

100 kilograms less and 30 hp more for the Lambo super sports car

Test driver Valentino Balboni already postulated at the end of the sixties: Anyone who drives a Lamborghini will not be overtaken . Unless he wants to. The Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 doesn't want it: The frame made of high-strength steel, stiffer and 20 kilograms lighter, the fixed rear wing for even more contact pressure than the standard version, the interior is papered with Alcantara and carbon fiber, the navigation system and music system are thrown out ( minus 34 kilograms), the performance-enhanced engine on the transmission and differentials lightened by 33 kilograms: results in minus 100 kilograms and plus 30 hp - a calculation that works. Less with the academic measurement program or the maximum speed, which is even three km /h lower than the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 because of the rear wing.

Balanced weight distribution in the Lamborghini Murcielago

For that the braking distances are shorter. The ceramic discs bite immediately, firmly and cleanlydosable, whereby the balanced weight distribution of the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4 also helps to calculate braking points and cornering speeds optimistically. But not too optimistic: the border area seems as tempting as a crevasse. Luring the four-wheel-drive mid-engine athlete into a counterattack by helplessly parried oversteer is just as stupid as walking through the arena with a waving red cloth and turning your back on the irritated bull. Alert reactions must replace the missing ESP. Driving clean is a must. Tight holding forces of the steering, strict feedback and discipline the astronomical limit. Understeer on cold tires is followed by merciless traction of the warmly massaged rubber - whether on a driving dynamics course, track or road.

Lamborghini suppresses the seventh deadly sin

Anyone who demonstrates their dedication to the Alcantara steering wheel and feeling at the gas pedal will be rewarded with a festival of G-forces. For example, when the pleasantly comfortably tuned 1.8-tonner applies deep braking into the curve just as dryly as the subsequent acceleration. The finely tuned V12 rages behind the partition, although even those familiar with the LP 640 struggle to feel the extra power. Up to almost 5,000 rpm it sorts its gas columns with a roar, vibrates abysmally - only to explode in the direction of 8,000 tours and slam into the next gear on the switchgear. The air shimmers in the inside mirror. All that's missing is the seventh mortal sin: indolence. Lamborghini simply suppressed that with the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce LP 670-4.
