With all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission as standard, an automated-clutch manual transmission with paddle-shifters is optional. According to Lamborghini, the Murciélago accelerates up to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 211 mph.

The Murcielago roadster and coupe have seen few changes since the mid-cycle facelift they received in 2006. The only change for the standard-issue models is a price increase. But there are new Versace-branded limited editions of both the coupe and roadster.
Top-of-the-line Lamborghini; distinctive wedge shape and sharp-angled design; exclusivity
With a price tag that starts around $350,000 and heads north from there, "value" isn't a term tossed about at the Lamborghini dealership. The 211 mph top speed will likely come up, though, as will the 6.5L V12 engine and the all-wheel drive system. The Murcielago stands as one of the most potent and dramatic super cars available today.
