2002 LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO
Visually an obvious descendant of the Diablo, the Lamborghini Murcielago is nevertheless a much smoother design concept. The lines are cleaner, with a self-assurance that requires no lairy wings, overly acute angles or messy surfaces. The theme continues inside the cockpit which is strikingly austere. The bragging is saved for the engine bay behind your head in which lurks a jaw-dropping 6.2-litre V12 engine capable of producing 580 bhp (a rise of nearly 30 bhp on the Diablo). All that energy drives a sophisticated four-wheel-drive system which, via the all-new six-speed transmission, uses both a viscous coupling and electronic traction-control system to distribute power evenly to all four wheels.
