The Lamborghini Murcielago took over from the Diablo as the new flagship model for the Italian supercar manufacturer in 2001. This was their first new design in 11 years, overseen by their then head of design, Luc Donckerwolke, and it was also the first new model to be manufactured under their new German parent company Audi.
It would go on to remain in production until the end of the 00s, in the process becoming one of the defining cars of the early 21st century. The Murcielago is an all wheel drive, mid engined sports car, and it was the first generation of Lamborghini’s cars to be kitted out with their now famous V12 engine.
And suffice to say, the V12 positively sings on this beauty, a 6.2 litre which produces a whopping 572 bhp, which enables the Murcielago to accelerate rapidly from 0 - 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, 0 - 100 mph in 8.9 seconds, and achieve a top speed in excess of 205 mph.
