There was a frisson of excitement, with furtive glances at the double doors of the showroom. The articulated lorry carrying the precious cargo had announced her arrival many minutes before and several pairs of ears strained to hear the first guttural purrs as she reverses down the ramp. Familiar, powerful, perfect; she does not disappoint.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 is a rare beauty indeed. Only 50 were ever created, very few of which were right hand drive. The car which has recently glided onto the forecourt is number 36/50. Just to add to her allure and prestige she is unique, being the only one currently in the UK.
There are always many exceptional, beautiful, classic and rare beauties on display at H.R. Owen, yet some simply outshine the rest by their almost understated perfection and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 is certainly such a star. With a flawlessly balanced 6.5 litre V12 engine that produces 650ph and a peak torque of 660 Nm, combined with the dynamic Italian design form, from which dreams become a reality, this Lamborghini can sprint from 0-60 in under 3.4 seconds.
The distinctive Grigio Telesto exterior grey bodywork is perfectly blended with a special bright orange Arancio on the front spoiler, sills and brake calipers, to create an image of enviable elegancy and dynamic, aggressive edginess that is pure Lamborghini.
The almost demure tone of the grey with signature orange accents is juxtaposed by the use of the transparent engine cover, ensuring that nobody can underestimate just how much skill and engineering craftsmanship went into the development of this icon of the modern age.
The interior continues to impress with the immaculately sculpted black Alcantara Nera on the driver’s side and black leather Nero Perseus for the passenger. This is balanced by the grey-orange paint scheme internally and asymmetric dash design.
The Murcielago LP 650-4 delivers a top speed of 205mph, while the “4” in the moniker relates to the permanent four-wheel drive, which enables this beautiful V12 to roar effortlessly on tracks or roads, while using all its available power at breath-taking speed.
When this limited edition Roadster was launched in 2009 many were bought by collectors, therefore, seeing one and hearing this rare masterpiece is a pleasure not to be underrated. She is virtually new, with a mere 2555 miles on the clock.
The stunning Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4, will be on display, albeit briefly at our Kensington, Lamborghini London, showroom, as she will be going to her new home very soon.
