Lamborghini build the last Murcielago

End of the line for Lamborghini’s Murcielago So the last Murcielago rolls off the Lamborghini production line.

The last Lamborghini Murcielago to roll off the production line

End of the line for Lamborghini’s Murcielago

So the last Murcielago rolls off the Lamborghini production line. Strange to finish on chassis number 4099. why not make it a nice rounded number like 4000 or 4100? This LP 670-4 Superveloce ends a long production run spanning nearly ten years. Sad to see it go, but even more exciting is the factory space it liberates for its successor and future models. Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento, shown at the Paris Motor Show hints at its replacement. The Murcielago was looking dated and hasn’t had the invigorating makeovers lately that keep the Gallardo fresh and exciting.


From Lamborghini
One of the most successful super sports cars of all time takes a bow – the last Murciélago to be produced bears the number 4,099

It is one of the most stunning and successful super sports cars of all time – the Lamborghini Murciélago. And that will always be the case, even if its production life has now come to an end. At the headquarters of the badge bearing the sign of the bull in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the last Murciélago left the production line on May 11, 2010 – headed to a Swiss customer. With “Arancio Atlas” paintwork, the LP 670-4 Superveloce proudly bears the production number 4,099. This makes the Murciélago not only by far the most-produced Lamborghini twelve-cylinder of all time, but also one of the world’s most successful super sports cars.

Mini vs Lambo twin test on our desktop

We pit Lambo’s Murcielago against Mini Cooper in this USB giant test! After reading our Motormouse review back last autumn, motor gizmo specialist Auto Regalia were keen for us to try other products. “How about a review of a USB stick” they asked?

Auto Regalia USB Mini & Lamborghini Murcielago

We pit Lambo’s Murcielago against Mini Cooper in this USB giant test!

After reading our Motormouse review back last autumn, motor gizmo specialist Auto Regalia were keen for us to try other products. “How about a review of a USB stick” they asked? Seriously underwhelmed by the prospect – I mean, a stick is a stick, it’s just that some are made larger than others, right? “Hey, these ones are die-cast metal, beautifully detailed miniatures” they retorted. “We can even supply them in yellow!” Well that clinched it, and behold, we have a brace of “HotWheels” with capacities only juggernauts could muster to play with (4 GB in this case ).

Auto Regalia USB Mini Cooper - wheels turn

Whipped out of their packaging, the weight and solidity of the castings were immediately apparent. No flimsy, snap-fit-plastic, 5-second wonder, but finely detailed models of the real thing. Even the Mini’s taillight cluster surrounds are chrome painted. Put the two models together and the major difference is the huge rear protuberance on the 1:72 scale Lambo; like someone bolted a fridge on the back. Unlike the Mini, the USB connector is not retractable and ruins the lines of the car’s backend. Underneath the Mini a press-and-slide catch neatly stows the USB connector when not in use.

Hey, it’s Pirelli Calendar time! And here’s Brit pop singer James Blunt emerging from a Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. But rather than train the spotlights on the celebrities, the extra LED lighting highlights the cars’ wheel arches where the Italian rubber is the star. The Venue is London where JB is joined by Lady Victoria Hervey, fab actress Lily Cole, and gorgeous Brit model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who stars, amongst others, in the Brazilian shoot for the fabled Milanese tyre co. This super coveted calendar is limited to corporate gifts, so photographer Terry Richardson’s work won’t be seen too widely, unless the prized wall-adorners make their way on to ebay or google images..!
