A modern classic destined for greatness.
The 2004 Lamborghini Murcielago, with its VIN ZHWBU16M34LA01266, stands as a paragon of modern supercar design and engineering. As one of just 31 US examples equipped with the coveted gated six-speed manual gearbox, this particular Murcielago is a rare specimen of Lamborghini's engineering prowess. Finished in the vibrant Giallo Evros, this supercar not only turns heads but also represents a crucial chapter in Lamborghini's storied history.
The Murcielago, Lamborghini's flagship V-12 model, marked a new era for the brand, blending the brand's traditional flamboyance with groundbreaking technology and design. This model saw the last iteration of the renowned Bizzarrini 12-cylinder engine, ensconced within a body that skillfully balanced the classic Lamborghini silhouette with contemporary design cues. The brainchild of Luc Donckerwolks, its design incorporated carbon fiber elements and iconic scissor doors, making it a standout in the supercar realm.
Under its sculpted exterior, the Murcielago is powered by a 6.2-liter V-12 engine, delivering a blistering 572 horsepower. This power is routed through a six-speed manual transmission, providing an exhilarating driving experience. The car also features a factory sport exhaust, adding to its visceral appeal.
The Murcielago's interior is a testament to Italian luxury, with a bi-color black and yellow deviate leather interior that exudes opulence. The car has been meticulously maintained and recently underwent a comprehensive service, including a PPI inspection and dry ice detailing, ensuring it remains in pristine condition.
This particular Murcielago has a storied past, including a minor incident in 2008 that led to its air-freight to the Lamborghini factory in Italy for door replacement. Now, with a clear title and under 22,000 original miles, it stands ready to continue its journey with a new custodian.
As a modern classic, this 2004 Lamborghini Murcielago is more than just a high-performance machine; it's a piece of automotive history. With its blend of raw power, exquisite design, and rarity, it represents the epitome of Lamborghini's commitment to creating extraordinary vehicles that captivate and inspire.
