Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 by Premier4509 – Click above for high-res image

The end of Murciélago is upon us. The steel-framed supercar from Sant'Agata has been on the market since 2001. Since then, Lamborghini has produced over 3,000 of them. But only 350 are LP670-4 SuperVeloce spec, and you can bet the other 2,650+ owners are jealous. However, while the SV's 670-horsepower engine remains the exclusive purview of the most extreme Lambo to date, one aftermarket firm has risen up to the challenge of giving existing "base" Murciélago owners the coveted look of the SuperVeloce.

You may remember Premier4509 for producing body kits for such exotics as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Bentley Continental GT and Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Japanese tuner fanboys and gamers may sooner recognize its parent company, VeilSide. But the Japanese outfit has now released a simple visual mod for the Murciélago to give it that SV look. Essentially all it is – for the time being at least – is a new bumper, blacked out on bottom and protruding like a cowcatcher. Coupled with a big rear wing and blacked-out quarter-panel intakes and mirrors, though, and it's a dead ringer SV.

Premier4509 says they've got an accompanying rear bumper in the works as well, and will only produce 300 examples of the body kit, so there's another couple thousand Murci owners still left out in the cold. And while it may not have the power advantage, even an "ordinary" Murciélago won't stick around long enough for anyone to notice.

      why cloning a murcielago into another murcielago? its like those who buy saleen replicas to make their v6 look like one. to the Train eye you still distinguish a real one from a fake. In lambo case I dont mind having either one but I do have a problem with the body kit one.

      I agree, this is silly. To me, if feels like you're diluting the car. Plus, in a bunch of years, which is going to be worth more? An original, or one with some bolt on aftermarket pieces? I would argue the former.

      But, to each his own.

      How fun to hear the term "cowcatcher" again! A blast from history.

      How does one go about becoming an owner of another 2,650 owners? Sounds expensive.

      I didn't think it was possible to make a poseur murcielago.

      I like it and all, but the question comes... WHY? if you already have a $600k car why spend money ot make it look like a $1 mill (is it?) car?

        You save $400,000?
