Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 "Bat" by JB Car Design – Click above for high-res image gallery

The whole 'Batmobile' comparison gets thrown around an awful lot on websites like this one. And this car's not even black, so we'll wave off of that this time. But consider the following: in the most recent Batman movie, Bruce Wayne drove a Lamborghini Murciélago. Into a truck, unfortunately. His alter-ego's drive, meanwhile, was on the other side of the more extreme Reventón. Now along comes JB Car Design with a kit to bridge the gap. And they call it the Bat, suitably enough.

The German tuner's retrofitted Murci LP 640 can be had with 710 or 750 horsepower (a not-inconsequential improvement on the stock 640) through the installation of new cats and exhaust. But in this case, the defining factor is the car's styling. A new front bumper and splitter, side skirts, and rear bumper with diffuser give the LP640 a more Reventón-style look, with a two-piece carbon fiber rear wing, LED lights and 20-inch modular alloys rounding out the package.

Meanwhile, the interior been re-trimmed in different leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber, along with a new steering wheel and sound system. Each of these components for engine, body and cabin can be purchased separately or as a comprehensive package, but JB says it will only make 75 examples of the body kit. Check out the photos in the gallery below and the press release after the jump for more.

Bat LP 640 - Lamborghini by JB Car Design

JB Car Design could not get better motivation than Lamborghini Murciélago. This is not the new race car from Lamborghini; it is a truly compatible sports car based on the Murciélago. The standard version already features a great convincing performance and a design that is hard to beat. The LP 640 from JB Car Design has a new outfit. The Carbon Aero Kit LP 640 is limited to 75 pieces worldwide, made in Germany, and is offered by JB Car Design including assembly and painting at the price of 28500 Euro. The painting consists of 6 layers of enamel primer matched to body color and comes with high solid clear varnish (from 9700 Euro). The design of the Aero Kit LP 640 represents a mix of the Reventon limited edition and the new Murciélago (2011 model).

The package consists of a front bumper with side air intakes, carbon fiber front lip spoiler, carbon fiber headlight covers, side skirts, rear bumper with side air outlets and carbon rear diffuser. If you want to go further, order also a two-piece carbon fiber rear spoiler, which is responsible not only for the improved optics and for an even greater down force on the rear axle and an underbody ground-effect optimization at the price of 2800 Euro.

The LED headlights including dim lights, interior and engine compartment lighting, indicator lights and door emitter are offered by JB Car Design for 970 Euro.

The experienced tuners have also upped the engine power to 750 hp. The performance increase up to 750 hp is offered at the price of 28500 Euro, the standard version with performance increase "only" to 710 hp costs 19500 Euro.

To complete the tuning package for the Lamborghini Murciélago, JB Car Design offers exclusive, three-piece 20" alloy wheels at the price from 8700 Euro.
This sports car is perceived as such owing to a controlled exhaust system along with sport catalysts and headers.

The interior is garnished with a noble bicolor leather or Alcantara, at the price of 9700 Euro. There is also a steering wheel with airbag 32 cm or 34 cm in diameter for 1970 Euro. A high-end sound system with additional subwoofer and amplifier complete the whole image.

      You know the old saying "a fool and his money are soon parted"?

      I sooo want to be the fool right now, so I can part ways with my money and buy one of these.

      I read somewhere that Murciélago means bat in italian
        • 4 Years Ago
        Murcielago was the name of a famous fighting bull in the 1800's. The bull was named Murcielago since it means 'bat" and the bull was very very dark.

        Lamborghini named their vehicle after the bull, like Z3pH4r had mentioned.

        It's the name of a bull... that's how Lamborghini names all their cars

      Changing a mass produced car like a Mustang or M-series car I can see. But to me there's something wrong with modifying a supercar, its like taking a work of art and painting over it yourself.

      Calling it the "Bat" is like saying ATM Machine...
      • 4 Years Ago

      A bit over the top IMO.

      Certain cars just look in their stock clothes. The LP-640 is one of them.
