THE LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO

Storming onto the scene in 2001, the Murcielago was introduced as the successor for the Diablo and flagship of the Sant'Agata, Bologna based super car manufacturer. The dramatic designed was penned by Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini's head of design at the time. This was the automaker's first new design in 11 years and the first new model under the ownership of German parent company, Audi. First introduced solely as a coupe version, the name continued Lamborghini's tradition of branding its cars after stars from the world of bullfighting. The Murciélago is named for a fighting bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight against Rafael "El Lagartijo" Molina Sanchez. Murciélago fought with such passion and spirit that the matador chose to spare its life. The bull was later presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura, thus began the famed Miura line of fighting bulls, and the name for one of Lamborghini's greatest cars.

With an angular design and exceptionally low body, the car sits just under 4 feet above ground. Scissor doors were carried over from earlier models, continuing the extreme looks Lamborghinis are so well known for. Plenty of power was available from the rear-mounted, longitudinally placed DOHC engine and featured all wheel drive, surely an idea by the parent company. Available with 580 horse power, the car would accelerate from 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. A Roadster version was introduced in 2004 and was featured in the 2005 Hollywood blockbuster Batman Begins. For the open top version, the designer used a B-2 stealth bomber, the WallyPower yacht and architect Santiago Calatrava's Ciutat de Les Arts i les Ciències in Valencia, Spain for inspiration.

A legendary Lamborghini in every way, the Murciélago was replaced by the Aventador in 2010.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This striking, low mileage example of the artistic beauty that Lamborghini is so well known for, was completed at the Sant'Agata Bologna plant in the spring of 2005 - the same year where a similar Roadster appeared in the Batman movie. The new Lamborghini was built for the US market and fitted with the 6-speed manual transmission and finished in Giallo Orion over a black interior with yellow stitching. The Murciélago was also the recipient of various options and extras; all contributing to a sticker price of nearly $300,000. The car cleared US customs in June of 2005, and received its pre-delivery inspection by the New York, NY based Lamborghini agency, Manhattan Motorcars in July of the same year, whom would also sell the car to the first owner.

The car's first owner, a New Jersey resident is believed to have kept the car until 2014, incurring less than 5,000 miles over his years of ownership. The car's CARFAX attests to periodical service and maintenance throughout this ownership, and it is evident when driving or inspecting the car that is has been extremely well cared for. The metallic yellow Giallo Orion shows beautifully throughout, and remains in original condition with just over 6,000 miles from new. Offered with factory accessories, CARFAX, and a copy of the factory invoice, this powerful Lamborghini is ready for its new custodian.
