Before the arrival of the Aventador in 2011, the Murcielago was the king of the bedroom wall-posters for Lamborghini and it is easy to forget how the searing performance of the Murcielago set the benchmark for every ‘hypercar’ to follow it.

Powered by a 572 hp V12 Lamborghini engine the car blasted to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and on to a top speed of up to 200 mph – and that was back in 2001!

During the years to follow the company continued to improve the V12’s performance by slightly increasing the engine capacity to 6.5 litres which allowed for a power output of over 600 hp.

However in 2009 the ‘SuperVeloce’ was the cherry on the cake. With power increased to 670 hp and various weight-saving modifications applied to the construction of the car the 0-60 mph time was down to 2.8 seconds and top speed was lifted to 210 mph. Even by today’s standards that is seriously quick and there are still few road-going hypercars that come close to those figures.

Today the SV is regarded as a highly desirable collectable Lamborghini and inevitably values are on the rise especially for right hand drive versions. Only eight cars were originally supplied to the UK and the number remaining are possibly half of that.

If you happen to be looking for an SV we know of a 2009 right hand drive Bianco Isis example (as seen in the image above) which is currently on sale.

This example is in excellent condition, has covered less than 7000 miles and comes complete with a Lamborghini service history.

SORRY THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD!
