Rent Lamborghini Murcielago in Europe
Back in 2001, Lamborghini needed to create a successor to their ever popular Diablo. Their new car needed to be the flagship of the company, one that would carry on the automakers
legacy in an age of ever improving engineering and technology. Also at that moment in time something big was happening behind the scenes for the automaker as automotive giant Audi
acquired the company back in 1998 along with Bentley and Bugatti. Their upcoming car would be the first new design in eleven years and the very first since their acquisition by Audi.
Needless to say the pressure was on for Lamborghini to bring something to market that the world had never seen before. After nearly five years of planning and design Lamborghini was
ready to roll out their newest masterpiece, the Murcielago. Since Lamborghini has a tradition of naming its vehicles after notable circumstances within the bullring it is no surprise
that they have chosen Murcielago as the name for their newest bull. One that embodied the spirit and passion both the automaker and the bull share. The car was named after a
legendary bull who when matched with famous matador Rafael “El Lagartiojo” Molina Sanchez in 1879, received 24 sword strokes without succumbing to them, leading to an incredibly
rare outcome in which the matador chose to spare the bulls life.
The power plant of the Murcielago is a naturally aspirated 6.2 litre V12 producing 572 hp. This engine speeds the car from 0-60 mph in a rapid 3.4 seconds and on to a top speed
of 205 mph. Lamborghini has been utilizing V12’s to power their dream machines since the 60’s with the introduction of their very first car, the 350GT. Although the V12 engine does
have a rich history, it has been heavily modernized over the years to fit the Murcielagos performance needs. In later editions of the Murcielago LP640, the V12 was increased to a
6.5 litre displacement upping the power to 631 hp. Drivers can also expect to see around 8-9 mpg of fuel consumption around town and 13-14 mpg out on the highway. Although the
Murcielago is a large car, the driving experience makes it feel smaller than it really is. Perhaps with Audi taking over the company the ease of the experience of driving a
Murcielago is surprising. Considering the long wheel base, weight, and low slung body of this car, it doesn’t feel unmanageable to drive. At low speed the Murcielago is in fact
very easy to handle and at higher speeds provides a sense of stability and safety. Braking and steering are very responsive and allow the driver a bit more confidence when pushing
the car in the turns. The steering feels light but not fragile and the brakes don’t seem to make the car unstable under harder braking. Later the Murcielago would see massive
improvements in braking with carbon ceramic brakes, making the older models braking system seem less developed in comparison.
The cabin is familiar, but different. A touch classier in parts. Extra padding - presumably for the shoulders of the straight-armers - now protrudes from the door upholstery at
the rear. The new dials feel fresh, but also have a flashiness to them that suggest premature ageing might be on the way. The ventilation system, though, is still easy to use,
and easier still to hide beneath its chrome, Lamborghini-emblazoned flap. Visually, Murciélago is still a simple, clean place to ply your trade and see out of
(well, to see forwards out of, at least), with mostly simple controls. That’s excepting the new command centre. It’s immediately difficult, all tiny buttons and no knobs at all.
How to operate this thing on the streaking light of 200-plus? It takes MP3, with a 6.5 inch widescreen monitor, plus WMA and DVD. A finger, by blind luck, falls on the ‘on’
button, and multiples of luck again locate the volume and search buttons.
