TOP 10: The world's ten fastest cars - Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster LP640 E-Gear

Pete Mait

The designation for this Lamborghini is a reference to the position of the engine – 'longitudinale posteriore' – and to the 640bhp output of the engine. In reinterpreting the Murcielago LP640, the design team at the Centro Stile Lamborghini strove to abide by the traditional styling principles of purism, sportiness and functionality. This 'bull' from Sant' Agata Bolognese performs the 0 to 62mph sprint in just 3.4 seconds. Fuel consumption is 13 mile to the gallon (21.3 litres per 100km). Just like its predecessor, the LP640 has permanent four-wheel drive. The combined sound of the engine, air resistance and tyre rumble at top speed resemble that made by an aircraft. In this Lambo, you feel like you are about to take off.
