2010 Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China news, pictures, and information
Lamborghini presents Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China LimitedItalian super sports carmaker Lamborghini surprised audiences at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show wîth a highly exclusive edition of the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The Chinese Edition is limited to not more than ten numbered cars and will be offered to the growing group of sports cars collectors in China only. Furthermore the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera celebrated its Asian premiere on the Beijing auto show.
'Automobili Lamborghini's strong performance at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show and its launch of a special edition of the flagship Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce exclusively for the Chinese market underscore our unwavering commitment to China and the development of a super sports car culture here,' said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. 'Last year, Automobili Lamborghini achieved 11 percent growth in China. At the beginning of this week on 20th of April, we have launched our seventh Automobili Lamborghini China dealership in Shenzhen. The inauguration of our eighth showroom in Xiamen will come soon. It is our pleasure that we can share our passion for Lamborghini wîth China's super sports car drivers, collectors and fans.'
Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited EditionLimited to only ten cars worldwide, the special edition Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is designed and manufactured exclusively for China's most discriminating super sports car enthusiasts. An orange stripe, symbolising the strength of an erupting volcano, decorates the flat grey painted carbon shell of the Murciélago. Every model holds a numeration badge wîth the name of its owner.
The Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is one of the most fascinating super sports cars of all times. The exceptionally purist and even more extreme top model – the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce – is even more powerful, lighter and faster than the Murciélago LP 640. With the output of the 6.5 liter V12 increased to 670 hp and a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. It vaults itself from zero to 100 km/h in just 3,2 seconds and hits top speed at 342 km/h.
With its outstanding performance, razor-sharp precision and exceptional high-speed stability, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is the ultimate performance car for advanced sports car drivers. In order to achieve the substantial weight reduction of 100 kilograms (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce was extensively reworked and redeveloped in virtually every aspect – from chassis to engine and transmission, right through to the interior. The increase in engine output from 640 to 670 hp is the result of optimized valve timing and a reworked intake system. The significantly modified aerodynamics wîth substantially increased downforce brings considerable improvement to vehicle stability at very high speeds. The large 'Aeropack Wing' and its added downforce give a top speed of 337 km/h (209 mph).
Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is the new top model of the Gallardo line. Its 'superlight' name describes a high-performance driving machine wîth a true sporting character and an automotive high-performance athlete. In comparison to the already slimmed-down Gallardo LP 560-4 the weight of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera could be reduced 70 Kilograms. So the dry weight of the new Sant'Agata Superleggera is just 1,340 kilogram – a new benchmark in the very exclusive market of extreme super sports cars.
The use of carbon fibre for external and internal components is heavily contributing to the weight reduction of the Superleggera. This carbon-composite material is ideal for super sports cars, combining weight reduction wîth improved technical characteristics. Reduced weight optimises the driving performance and correspondingly reduces CO2 emissions. For many years Lamborghini has lead the way in the use of carbon fibre and is now increasing its advantage even further.
The 5,2 litre V10 engine output of the new Superleggera is 419kW (570 hp). The power-to-weight ratio of this new top model amounts to only 2,35 Kilogram per hp and guarantees a breathtaking driving performance. The Superleggera accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds sprints to 200 km/h only 10.2 seconds later, ultimately reaching 325 km/h. The gasoline direct injection engine 'Inezione Diretta Stratifica' achieves an impressive efficiency: fuel consumption and CO2 emissions dropped 20.5 percent in comparison to the previous model.
Lamborghini shows strong performance in China Market
The booming Chinese automobile market has matured and created a culture in which the brand of the raging bulls has taken root. In 2009, Automobili Lamborghini delivered 80 new cars to People's Republic, achieving 11 percent year-on-year growth. With six dealerships in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou and Hong Kong, Lamborghini unveiled a new dealership in Shenzhen this week. Another Showroom in Xiamen will soon follow.Source - Lamborghini
