Lamborghini has surprised audiences at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show with a highly exclusive edition of the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The China Limited Edition is limited to just ten numbered cars and will be sold exclusively in China. Furthermore the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera celebrated its Asian premiere in Beijing today as well.
The car features an orange stripe, symbolizing the strength of an erupting volcano, and the rest is finished in a flat grey. Each model also holds a numeration badge with the name of its owner.
The SV model essentially extends the potency of the somewhat long-in-the-tooth soon-to-be-replaced Murcielago. To do so, Lamborghini has cut weight by 220 pounds and boost power for a truly hardcore driving experience. The car sport 670 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque from its 6.5-liter V-12 engine that's 57 pounds lighter than the standard Murcielago’s V-12. That's enough to deliver 0-60 mph times of 3.2 seconds and top speeds of 212 mph.
Everything about the SV sets it up to be the most extreme Lamborghini ever.
In 2009, Lamborghini delivered 80 new cars in China, achieving 11 percent year-on-year growth. With six dealerships in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou and Hong Kong, Lamborghini unveiled a new dealership in Shenzhen this week. Another Showroom in Xiamen will soon follow.
