Lamborghini Murcielago production endsFri, 05 Nov 2010
The last Lamborghini Murcielago - an LP670-4 - leaves Sant'Agata
Despite the Lamborghini Jota (or Lamborghini LP700-4 as we may now have to call it) failing to make the Lamborghini stand at last month’s Paris Motor Show, the news that the last Lamborghini Murcielago has now rolled out of Sant’Agata is as clear a sign as there can be that Lamborghini’s new range-topper is just round the corner.
The final Murcielago – an LP670-4 in Arancio Atlas with big wing – actually rolled off the production line in May. It was the 4,099th Murcielago to roll out of Sant’Agata, by far the biggest run of twelve-cylinder cars in Lamborghini’s history.
But the Murci did have a long time – nine years – to rack up what is an impressive production number for supercars of any sort, never mind a barking mad 12-pot. It also spawned a number of variations including the LP640 and Roadster, LP650-4 Roadster and LP-670-4. You can also consider the Reventon the spawn of the Murcielago.
So it’s goodbye to the Murcielago, and almost hell to the Jota/LP700-4.
