Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 – Click above for high-res image gallery

A Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 starts at around $350,000 and can quickly crest $400,000 with the addition of a few options and a dropable top, and the LP640-4 starts at $450,000. That's a lot of coin to be sure, but in the spirit of pulling together to ride out this whole "recession" thing, Lamborghini is looking to ease the blow of $7,000 per month financing with a new 0% offer for the 2009 and 2010 Murciélago coupe and roadster. The Italian supercar maker is offering 0% for up to 60 months for customers with credit scores over 740 and down payments somewhere north of 10% (the press release doesn't provide an exact number). That's a pretty big bargain considering a buyer picking up an LP640 for $400,000 with $80,000 down (20%) for $5,333.33 per month over 60 months, while the typical 5.9% interest rate would bring the monthly payment to $6171.63 with $50,297.67 in accumulated interest over the course of the loan.

Lamborghini is also offering 5.9% interest for up to 12 years for customers with 10% down and a credit score of 700. That makes for a monthly payment of about $3,500 per month on a $400,000 LP640, with $143,000 in interest over the course of the loan. While those loan terms sound all right to us, we're sadly still a bit short on funds for the Autoblog garage. Hit the jump to read over the Lamborghini presser.

      $5000 a month??

      WIth that kind of a payment I could pay off my current car in about 3 weeks.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Did the article mean the 'SV' starts at $450k?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Give me 0% and a 1000 month term and you've got yourselves a deal!
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's simple... $450 a month for a LP640-4 is easily doable. Sure it's over 37 years, but since the interest is 0%, the car will be worth more than the purchase price long before you ever end up paying for it! The rarer the car the better, make it a SuperVeloce and you'll profit even sooner!

        37,5 years?
        • 5 Years Ago
        for 400 months? no thanks.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'll take it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'd be stupid not to buy it!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Well that settles it then, where do I sign?
      • 5 Years Ago
      yea really, I am thinking about buying the middle of the line model $400,000 LP 640 if I can sweet talk the Lamboghini salesman down to $385,000.......

      then oh maybe...... Im thinking about plunking about 300 large down, then maybe financing the $90,000 with a 3 year loan - maybe pay it off early, save some money on the interest

      I stopped by my local Lambo dealer today to see if the new Valentino Balboni Gallardos had come in yet. The answer was "no" but they had two coming, and one was spoken for already. The salesman actually asked if I wanted to buy the other one or order one. Keep in mind, I'm an acne-fied 19 year old. Same thing happened when I stopped by Mercedes dealer looking for an SL65 AMG Black Series, they asked if I wanted to order one. They did have a Murci SV, and I took some pics (linked).

        Did you tell him you were extremely interested, but you had to test-drive one to make sure????
        • 5 Years Ago
        25% of Ferrari/Lambo buyers are under 30. I am assuming that they would verify income and credit before letting you out for a joyride but they are not going to kick you out when you walk through the door.

        Great point. I worked at a camera shop years ago, and my biggest sale came from an early-20s kid who I initially thought was wasting my time. He end up spending well over $10K before leaving the store - I certainly didn't see that one coming.

        I learned years ago to never underestimate a customer. Working retail car stereo for a specialty shop re-educated me on the potential for the amount of $$$ that can be dropped by those that you would least expect it from. You never knew who had a wad of $100 bills in their wallet that they were itching to unload.

      So what's next, TV commercials? It's been interesting lately, seeing Porsche run commercials for their 1.9% financing. It's been awhile since I've seen any Porsche commercials.
      • 5 Years Ago
      $5,333 a month? I'm gonna go check my credit score, because if I qualify I'm SURE I can swing that!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Might want to get an insurance quote and also do some research on maintenance; I can't imagine either of those being affordable.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Sweet article
      • 5 Years Ago
      I can come up with the down payment no problem and I have the credit score...and that's about it.
      So in theory I could own a Murcielago for a few months before I lost everything I have...
      This is hilarious.
      I wonder what kind of repo men Lamborghini sends?
