Styled by Peruvian-born Belgian, Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini's head of design from 1998 to 2005, the Lamborghini Murciélago was built between 2001 and 2010. The successor to the Diablo and the flagship of Lamborghini's lineup, the Murciélago was introduced as a coupé in 2001. It was Lamborghini's first new design in eleven years and was also the brand's first new model under the ownership of German parent company Audi, which is owned by Volkswagen.
The Murciélago is an all-wheel drive, mid-engined super-sports car with an angular design and an exceptionally low slung body, the highest point of the roof being just under 4 feet above the ground. Amongst the vehicle's many distinguishing features are its scissor doors, which add to the dramatic presence of this "what am I looking at, is it a Spaceship?" piece of Italian Automotive Art.

The First-generation Murciélagos, produced between 2001 and 2006, were powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company's beginnings in the 1960s. The V12 engine produced 572 bhp, and rocketed the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds.

The rear differential is integrated with the engine itself, with a viscous coupling centre differential providing drive to the front wheels. The Murciélago suspension uses an independent double-wishbone design, and bodywork features carbon fibre, steel and aluminum parts. The rear spoiler and the active air intakes integrated into the car's shoulders are electro-mechanically controlled, deploying automatically only at high speeds, in an effort to maximize both aerodynamic and cooling efficiency.

  • Delivered new to Sweden
  • 19,675kms
  • Rare manual example

This Murciélago Coupé is a rare manual example with only 19,675 kilometers indicated, covered mostly in Sweden where it had been delivered new, suggesting that this lovely Murcielago has clearly led a cosseted life.

Upon its arrival in Denmark in 2008, it was not road registered but nonetheless received not only a full service but also a dramatic, if temporary, colour change. The car was black and still is, but on top of that it was professionally wrapped in yellow, a fairly new technique wth lots of advantageous if you can't make up your mind about what colour you would like your car to be. Should the new owner prefer a darker shade the wrapping can, of course, be removed to reveal the original black paintwork.

With a full service history this Lamborghini is an iconic supercar and not to be missed.
