The Force Is Strong With Star Wars-themed Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

The Jedi return to the automotive world, but this time the car that’s been gifted with the power of the Force is not the 2012 Volswagen Passat, but a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago. The supercar has been wrapped in vinyl to give it a Star Wars theme for this year’s Gold Rush Rally 3. Que Darth Vader theme music.

We love the new look of the LP640, as it now sports a theme from the Clone Wars era. A Jedi Order crest has been added to the passenger side door, while the Galactic Republic/Galactic Empire ones are on the driver’s side. The overall look remind us of a trop carrier ship, with its laser machine guns an white paint, detailed with black panel lines.

On the roof, an R2 D2 head has been added, probably to aid with repairs if the Murcielago gets dinged in battles with starfighters. There’s a few mock-flapt on top of the rear wheels and machine guns pop out of just about every surface of the car.

An inscription of the passenger-side door jokingly says “Co-pilot: Golden Puss” and is accompanied by a logo that combines Hello Kitty and Darth Vader facial elements. With this last element, you can be sure the Lambo would be the pride of the Star Wars villain's supercar collection.

We’ll remind you that the LP640 Murcielago uses a 6.5-liter V12 engine that develops 640 hp at 8,000 rpm and 486 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque at 6,000 rpm, pushing the supercar to the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark in just  3.4 seconds.

Excellent vinyl job guys, and nice video by Brian Zuk too!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
