The regular Murciélago on which the LP640 is based has sold over 2,000 units, a huge number for a supercar, and this 640hp (632 for US versions) is faster yet easier to live with.

What next? No gearshift selector? This car was equipped with an optional $10,000 automatic transmission called e-gear, which you shift only with levers on either side of the steering wheel. The most surprising thing about the LP640 is its driveability, it benefits from an electronic drive-by-wire engine management system that metes out punch in survivable doses, which allows you to go from zero to 60mph in 3.3 seconds.
