1/18 AUTOart Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV (Bianco Canopus)

All good things come to an end (as they say).

This is the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. It is the most powerful Murcielago ever produced and will be the last iteration of Lamborghini's flagship car before the torch is handed to the Lamborghini Aventador. The Murcielago has had many body and engine changes through its decade long production life. For the non-roadster production, the Murcielago started with a 6.2 V12 that produced 580 HP. 2006 introduced the LP640 which increased displacement to 6.5 litres and generated 640 HP along with a few body changes, most notably the front and rear fascias, an enlarged inlet on the left skirt for oil cooling, new tail lamps and a single rear exhaust outlet. Near the end of its life this engine was tweaked to generate 670 HP and extreme body styling was incorporated for the ultimate version of the Murcielago creating the LP670-4. I followed the Murcielago very closely throughout its production life and since I possessed the first version of the production Murcielago, I definitely had to obtain the last model.

Normally, I would now go through and caption all the pictures outlining the details and craftsmanship of the model. All you need to know is that many diecast collector's say the Murcielago SV is the best model (quality wise) to come out of the AUTOart factory ever. I won't ruin the Murcielago with my technical break downs and descriptions. Instead, a moment of silence for the death of the raging bull.

The Last Hurrah.
The Fastest. Lightest. Most Powerful Murcielago. The LP670-4 Super Veloce.
