Lamborghini got us all up in a twist with the revelation of this small teaser image that shows only an exhaust and a diffuser on a new model slated for unveiling in a couple of weeks at the Paris Motor Show. While previous reports postulated that Lamborghini was preparing to unveil a four-door model, the latest suggest, somewhat more credibly, that the new vehicle is actually the Superveloce version of the Murcielago LP640.

Like the Reventon, the Superveloce may command a considerable premium at 382,400 euros (almost double the price of the regular Murcielago) and could be offered in extremely limited numbers of just 100 units. In return, buyers will get an exclusive lightweight supercar with styling inspired by the Reventon and an additional 30-40 horsepower on tap. When it becomes available sometime next year as a 2010 model, the LP640 SV will likely be the last distinguishable version of the Murcielago before the exotic, originally introduced back in 2001, is replaced by an all-new model. Of course, these reports could be inaccurate as well, especially if Lamborghini hopes to live up to the presumptuous line that accompanied the teaser image – It's not just a new Lamborghini. It's a new world. – with anything more than another special edition of an aging model.

      In all honesty I hoped for a new Espada or something along those lines. Not that there is anything wrong with a Lp640 SV.... Just send me one for my birthday and the poorly executed marketing exercise will be forgiven. Lol.
      On the other hand... all this could just be more miss-information to keep us all guessing and captivated, building the hype before we are all shocked and amazed by something new (is it too much to hope for?)....

      Maybe it is already the Murcielago replacement with some rather special tech? That would be fitting for a new world...

      I still think whatever is in that picture is way too high to be a LP640 anything. I'm guessing Sedan or CUV
        • 6 Years Ago
        You might be right. It doesn't seem the proportions are that of a Murci either.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Uuhmm, the regular Murcielago LP640 is 285600,- Euros. So 380K isn't nearly twice the price.
        • 6 Years Ago
        They didn't say 2x the LP640, they said 2x the base Murc.

        Withdrawn.

        Last time I checked, the LP640 was "the base Murc."

      Lamborghini continues to copy the ford mustang, and adds yet another flavor of murcielago. I am disapointed!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Oh- a limited edition car, with a few more HP and some carbon bits.

      That's new world alright... :P

      Well that's disappointing!

      It wont be a proper SV without gutting the drive to the front wheels. Id love to see some RWD murci action but like the poster above Im still hoping for a stripped out smaller track ready model.

        You didn't read the article from this link "Superveloce version of the Murcielago LP640." did you?

      I'm waiting for Lambo to come out with a direct competitor to the Lotus Elise. I was hoping this would it.
