Hamann, the German tuning firm known for turning out everything from amped-up MINIs to flamboyant, Batmobile-ish Ferraris, has presented its latest upgrade subject: the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. The Murcielago is a car that is amply menacing as is -- or so we thought. You see, Hamann decided that there was still room to make it look more evil, and success was achieved.
A full set of aero upgrades is now available. This includes a new front spoiler, rear wing, side sills, a roof-mounted intake, and new covers for both the lower and shoulder-mounted air intakes. The aero bits are available in both carbon fiber and fiberglass. Adding to the car's more pronounced visuals are a Hamann sport exhaust that features dual 120mm (4.72") tips poking out of the Murcielago's center exit. The effect borders on the cartoonish (see the attached gallery), but it's all business, as the new exhaust barks out a note with even more ferocity than the stock car's. Hamann's own "Edition Race" wheels finish things off nicely, and inside, the customization options are almost limitless. Hamann's trademark Lambo doors are not needed here. The Murcielago comes with the real thing, of course.
Full details are available in the press release after the jump.
Stealth-Bomber for the race track:
HAMANN Lamborghini Murciélago LP640
• Aerodynamic-components provide impressions of racing motor sports
• double-pipe stainless steel rear silencer
• Wheels „Edition Race" in 20 inch
• Carbon-look interior set
• Complete interior kits to customer preferences on individual basis
It looks like a Stealth-Bomber on four wheels. It is one of the most masculine looking sports car and it is fast. The Lamborghini LP640 through its appearance gives a clear impression it's not just for show. HAMANN decisively set its goal to send a clear message and sharpened the Italian steer's horns. HAMANNs modifications through look, driving dynamics and sound create a distinct difference.
Maintenance of road contact is most essential when one is pushing a super sports car to the limit. To achieve greater downforce on the front and rear axle HAMANN offers a front spoiler as well as a rear wing. Whoever prefers to show their affiliation to motor sports can order the parts in Carbon-Kevlar instead of the fiberglass version. Where's the starting grid?
HAMANN applies further aerodynamic components in form of a two-part rear diffuser with additional air hoses for the extendable side air intakes, side sills as well as a two-part front wing and Carbon-pendants for the original side intakes in the sills in front of the rear wheels. Furthermore, a central running air box on the roof brings back memories of past Lamborghini Diablo GT-R days. Naturally, these parts are also available in Carbon-Kevlar or fiberglass.
Impressive sound and stunning rims
The HAMANN double-pipe stainless sports rear silencer (2x120mm end pipes) emits a sound similar to that generated from race tracks announcing the arrival of the blood-curdling steer. Positive side effect; an even sportier rear look. Export customers can extend their exhaust system with a HAMANN sport metallic catalytic converter.
Also for individualization of vehicles within this high performance calibre, a choice of new wheel design is inherent. HAMANN suggests its own creation „Edition Race". This multi-pieced, forged light alloy metal wheel with black wheel spider, "Y" spoke design, Titan bolts and high polished rim flange utilized for Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 comes in the combination 8,5Jx20" front and 13,0Jx20" rear. As expected, HAMANN also offers here a complete wheel set with typical tires sizes 235/30 ZR 20 (FA) und 325/25 ZR20 (RA).
HAMANN prepares the cockpit of the Super-Lambo providing even more sports racing atmosphere. For this, the tuners from Laupheim, Germany offer an 8-part carbon-look interior set. The race car look is established through instrument cockpit bordure, the air bleed jet, the gear shifting panel as well as the cigarette ashtray console. Naturally, HAMANN offers each Lamborghini customer preferred alterations on an individual basis. For instance, extravagant leather furnishing in a variety of colours is possible or additional of multi-media articles.
