According to Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., this special edition marks Lamborghini’s commitment to China and to the development of a super sports car culture here.
“Last year, Automobili Lamborghini achieved 11 percent growth in China. At the beginning of this week on 20th of April, we have launched our seventh Automobili Lamborghini China dealership in Shenzhen. The inauguration of our eighth showroom in Xiamen will come soon. It is our pleasure that we can share our passion for Lamborghini with China’s super sports car drivers, collectors and fans,” added Winkelmann.
The Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition strikes with its orange stripe that symbolizes the strength of an erupting volcano (perfect timing, if you ask us...) which decorates the flat grey painted carbon shell of the car. Lamborghini says each car will hold a badge with the name of its owner.
With the output of the 6.5 liter V12 increased to 670 hp and a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. All this power propels the car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and helps it achieve a top speed of 342 km/h.
The reduction in weight was achieved by reengineering every aspect of the car, while the increase in engine output is the result of optimized valve timing and a reworked intake system.
