Review: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

As we all know, there are supercars, and then... there's the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. It has been called old and overweight, it has been called impractical and overpriced, it has been called out for its propensity to make 10-year-old boys lick its windows. When we got word that the LP640 would be stopping by the Autoblog Garage for a weekend, it was our chance to see if the childhood dream was still potent enough to answer adult desires. We've driven the Bugatti Veyron, Bentley Continental GT Speed, Porsche GT2, Corvette ZR1, Dodge Viper ACR and even Lambo's own Gallardo LP560, and they... Read More

    We suppose that it was fate that eventually someone would take a vintage Fiat 500 and wrap it around a 6.2-liter V12 plucked from a Lamborghini Murcielago. Seeing as how both the 500 and the Murcielago hail from Italy, it was only a matter of time before the two got drunk and made either the best or worst decision of their lives depending on who you ...

    Regardless of how you (or we) feel about Kanye West's music, factual errors are factual errors. And that's exactly why we're posting this music video of Kanye's new single, "Mercy." Or is that, "Murci?" As in, Murciélago? Kanye apparently thinks so, as the lyrics specifically say "Murci-lago" a couple of times throughout the song. But look ...
