Lamborghini Murciélago LP640: Mad, bad and utterly wonderful to know

Great article here by an enthusiastic Lamborghini owner, Jeremy Clarkson from TopGear, about the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640.
So why can’t I remember modern cars? Well, put simply, they don’t have lilac seats or pointless cut-out switches. Many, I’m afraid to say, are nothing more than white goods.

It is an astonishing car, this. Fitted with an enlarged 6.5 litre V12 engine, it develops a massive 495 carbon dioxides and that means the top speed is 211mph. On the short Top Gear runway, I had it up to an indicated 207, which is faster than any other car has managed.

So yes, the power and the noise that goes with it mean you are never likely to forget even the shortest drive. That’s good. But the main reason this car is so memorable comes when you get to a corner.
