2011 Lamborghini Murcielago Review

Outrageously, ridiculously expensive sports car that will make you immediately famous

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
As the car maker's flagship car, the 2011 Lamborghini Murcielago is an exotic supercar that is astronomically expensive, whether you get it as a coupe or a convertible. The Lamborghini Murcielago is outfitted with a 6.5-liter V-12 engine delivering 632 horsepower or a 670-4 Super Veloce limited edition serving 661 horsepower. The Murcielago comes with all-wheel drive, full-time drive systems, and a six-speed E Gear automated clutch manual or six-speed manual transmissions.

The coupe comes with sports scissor style doors, while the convertible sports a soft-cloth targa-style roof. We won't even discuss safety or fuel economy, for obvious reasons.

New for 2011

Since Lamborghini introduced the Murcielago SV and the open-air roadster versions for the 2010 model year, there are no significant changes.

Essentials

Engine: 6.5L V-12
Transmissions: 6-speed manual, 6-speed auto-clutch manual
Body Styles: Coupe, convertible
Models: LP640 Coupe, LP640 Roadster, LP650-4 Roadster, LP670-4 SV Coupe

On the Outside

Standard features on the Lamborghini Murcielago include 18-inch wheels with 245/35ZR18 performance tires in front and 335/30ZR18s in back, an adjustable suspension raises the front to prevent curb or parking-block scraping, and xenon headlights. Optional upgrades are extensive and expensive.

From the Inside

Within the Lamborghini Murcielago, you'll find in a tilt/telescoping steering column, leather upholstery and interior trim, automatic climate control, and a CD/DVD/MP3 stereo. Lamborghini's Ad Personam program allows you to customize the interior and exterior via unique colors and accent materials.

Driving Performance

The "regular" Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 screams to 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds, while the SV can do it in just 3.2 seconds. Top speed, claims Lamborghini, is well above 200 mph and 211 mph for the SV. Maximum grip is around 1.0 g -- amazingly the Murcielago is lighter than its size might suggest.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features included on the Roadster are rollover bars that automatically deploy if the car begins to turn over. Otherwise, the safety features are minimal. That is, no side air bags, no stability control, nothing -- you are out there.

Gas Mileage

LP 640, Roadster: 8 mpg city/13 mpg highway
SV: 9 mpg city/14 mpg highway

Plusses

  • Screaming performance
  • The V-12 engine's howl
  • Outrageous styling

Minuses

  • Astronomical price tag
  • No rear visibility
  • Ridiculous fuel consumption
