Yes, we’re coming to the end of the life of the Murcielago, which if you didn’t know it already you can tell it’s near from the glut (by Lamborghini standards) of new models. We brought news of the Murcielago LP670-4 SV a few days ago, and now we hear, from Autoblog in the Netherlands, that there is to be a final ‘Hurrah’ for the roadster in the form of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP650-4.
Expected to sport the same 650bhp engine as the Reventon, this LP650-4 looks like it’s going to be one of the quickest open-topped cars there is, with a 0-60 time just over 3 seconds. Just like the Reventon, the LP650-4 looks likely to come in just one colour choice, in this case a matt grey (Grigio Telesta) with orange accents, and dark painted alloys.
With the expected launch of the LP670-4 SV happening at Geneva in a couple of weeks, it is unlikely that Lamborghini will show this car, more likely saving it for later in the year for maximum impact.
With just 50 cars to be made, and a list price of €295k + tax, this is not going to be a cheap car. But in comparison to the €1,000,000 price tag of the 20 Reventons built, it will be something of a bargain. And if Lamborghini manage to shift these 50, and the LP670-4 SV run, as quickly as they shifted the Reventons, then Lamborghini will be a real asset to VW in 2009.
