Lamborghini Murcielago
"The Murcielago builds and adds to the tradition of the Lamborghini marque. With all the definitive styling and individuality, for which its predecessors such as the Diablo, Countach and Miura were all famous, the Murcielago takes the spirit of Lamborghini to new levels."

Murcielago has already been acclaimed by the world's media as a car to make marques such as Ferrari 'look to their laurels'. The first Lamborghini to be designed and produced under Lamborghini's present owners Audi, Murcielago features not only unmistakable external styling, but outstanding engineering and build that assures the latest Lamborghini a place at the front of the 'super car' grid.

The first UK specification Murcielago was released in Spring 2002, priced at just over £160,000, with a high demand already experienced. Dominic Lancaster, general manager of Lamborghini London, the official UK importer of Lamborghini in the UK, believes that the Murcielago will not only appeal to traditional Lamborghini enthusiasts but also attract a new following to the marque.

"Murcielago has been designed and built to a new standard," says Lancaster. "While it is very much a Lamborghini, with all the aggressive good looks traditionally associated with the marque, it also offers a level of design and engineering refinement for which previous Lamborghini models have sometimes been criticised. At the same time, Murcielago does not lack in the outstanding power, performance and eye-catching style for which Lamborghini is famous worldwide."
