Photoshoot: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640


Photoshoot: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640


Last week I visited a rooftop in Sydney to take some photos of one of my favourite cars, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640.

I have seen this car around Sydney several times and hearing the exhaust note would always make my day. So I was very excited to catch up again with the owner and spend some time on a rooftop car park taking photos of this magnificent beast.

The colour of this Murciélago is Grigio Telesto, a colour that won’t look too exciting on many cars but on the Murcielago it just simply works. The car looks tough, like a Lamborghini should, and unique.

When the pedal goes to the medal you’re pressed back in your seat and boy, that’s a feeling I could easily get used to, what a power and I haven’t even started on the noise! The Murciélago I photographed has an Innotech Performance Exhaust installed and it blows your socks off!

The Murciélago was first unveiled at the 2006 Geneva, it’s the second generation Murciélago. The LP640 was produced between 2006 and 2010.

“The Murciélago is a powerful super car that got its deserving name from the bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight at the arena of Cordoba and his life was spared by the matador giving him a rare honor.”
