Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SV
Wow. This car is amazing! For the first five minutes after the car arrived I was just standing there looking at it, camera in the hand but too shaky to take any photos.
Getting the best of the best driving to you for a photo shoot definitely doesn’t happen to me every day…. ever, for that matter. And best of all, it is a LAMBORGHINI! Lamborghini’s have always had a special place in my heart, from the Countach and Diablo, going even further back the beautiful Miura and now the Murciélago LP670-4 SV.
This is a photo shoot that I will never forget. Seeing the car arrive was something special. My heart stopped for a second and it was hard to comprehend that the car came there for me. I just really didn’t know where to start and what to do. That’s the effect this car has on you.
Looking at the photographs I think I could’ve done better and we were a bit unlucky with the harsh sun which was providing the light at the wrong angles. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining at all, I was very privileged to do the photos as an amateur photographer and hopefully I’ll be able to get another shot at photographing the Murciélago SV, to get the photos I intended to get.
This is one of my new Favourite cars for sure, right up there with the Countach and Diablo.
Some numbers: The SuperVeloce’s V12 produces 670 PS (493 kW; 661 hp) at 8000 rpm and 660 N·m (490 lb·ft) of torque at 6500 rpm, thanks to improved valve timing and intake system modifications. The car’s weight was reduced by 100 kg (220 lb) by swapping several interior parts and exterior panels out for carbon fiber replacements, along with the installation of a new, lighter exhaust system. The LP670-4 SV comes standard with the LP640’s optional six-piston caliper, 15-inch carbon-ceramic disc brakes, slowing black 18-inch wheels. In its June 2009 issue, Car and Driver magazine predicted that the LP 670-4 SV was capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in just 2.8 seconds and 9.7 seconds to 200 km/h (120 mph) . Lamborghini claims the car can reach 342 km/h (213 mph) with an optional smaller spoiler, or 337 km/h (209 mph) with the standard Aeropack wing.
