Lamborghini launches limited edition Murcielago for China

Lamborghini has decided that the market in China warrants a highly limited edition of one of their supercars. So at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show they launched the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition for its loyal customers there. This exclusive 10 unit model was launched in tandem with the premiere of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera for the China market.

The reason was because Lamborghini had delivered 80 new cars to customers in China last year and had achieved an 11% year on year growth in sales. Lamborghini already has six dealerships in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou and Hong Kong. Lamborghini unveiled a new dealership in Shenzhen this week (19th -24th April 2010). Another Showroom in Xiamen will soon follow This from a nation that once shunned capitalism.

I really like reading the press release on this beauty. According to Lamborghini, the orange stripe that runs through the middle of the bonnet and the roof symbolises the “strength of an erupting volcano”. It also decorates the matt grey carbon shell of the car. I have to say that the strength of the raging bull is already rampant enough for me, and for most of us. It also bears a numbered plaque with the name of the owner.

The 6.5liter V12 has a reworked intake system and better valve timing. It makes 670bhp, up from 640bhp and it is transmitted to all four wheels. The car itself is 100kgs lighter than the usual Murciélago. The weight loss was achieved by the usual meticulous reworking of every part in the car. From the engine, transmission, chassis and also the interior. The increased horsepower and the reduced weight allows the very special Lamborghini to reach 100km/h in 3.2secounds with a terminal top speed of 342km/h.

However, there is an “Aeropack Wing” option, shown in the pictures that adds downforce. One must note that if one ticks this option, the top speed drops to a slightly 'dissapointing' 337km/h. I suppose you can't win them all.
