When Luc Donckerwolcke designed the Lamborghini Murciélago, it was as if the gargoyles from the Notre Dame cathedral climbed down from their perches high above the nave to whisper in his ear. Its menacing expression greets you first and soaring peaks on the tips of the scissor doors drive your eye upward to the sky.
Launched for model year 2002 as a successor to the Diablo, the Murciélago was named for a bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight. The bull’s life was spared and hopefully it went on to a life of flowers and romps through the pasture as in the movie Ferdinand.
Acquired by the current owner in 2014, who put only 500 miles on it since then, this Lamborghini (sans mustache, because Movember is nearly finished) includes beefy silver-painted brake calipers over carbon-ceramic rotors, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires. A Fabspeed exhaust system was added recently, and the original exhaust components are included if you buy it.
