New Lambo - SuperVeloce

Drool... Another stunning car from the workshops of Lamborghini.

Lamborghini has unveiled the quickest Murcielago yet, a 670-horsepower toro lidiado that charges from zero to 60 in just 3.2 seconds and hits a top speed of 212 mph.
The LP 670-4 SuperVeloce shown at the Geneva Motor Show sports a 6.5-liter V-12 cranking out 30 horsepower more than the LP 640. A healthier dose of carbon fiber and other mods cut 220 pounds from the LP 640, bringing the SuperVeloce to 3,450 pounds. Suspension and aerodynamic tweaks — note that big freakin' wing — contribute to the stunning velocity. It's almost as impressive as the hyperbole in the press release:
From the rumble of a stormy night through the trumpeting of mighty elephants to the roar of a raging lion, the SuperVeloce performs the grand opera for 12 cylinders, 48 valves and 8,000 revs.
Yeah, Lamborghini should stick to engineering and leave the writing to others.
Want one? Better move quick. Sant'Agata plans to build just 350, and they'll go for somewhere north of $300,000. More pics ...
