…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago?

Prindiville Lamborghini Murcielago

Anyone can dress up their Lamborghini with a new set of wheels or a fancy spoiler, but it takes a special kind of tuner to take apart the raging bull and piece it back together as a carbon fiber interpretation of its former self. Thus, the Prindiville Prestige Lamborghini Murcielago is no ordinary supercar.

When compared to a standard (hah!) Lamborghini, the Prindiville variation only retains the front compartment lid, as everything (and I do mean everything) else has been changed, right down to the roof panel.

There’s a bolder, more assertive front valance, eye-catching sills, a more dynamic rear valance through which exits a specially designed titanium sports exhaust system, ‘handle-less’ doors with remote electric opening, and a restyled engine bay cover with transparent cooling louvres.

Plus, as if that wasn’t enough, all of the exterior bits and pieces have been made of carbon fiber for that rare and racy look and feel.

Inside, rich leather and hand-finished aluminum accents treat the driver to all the luxury that a supercar owner could want or need, and ‘little touches’ like specially engineered aluminum air vents remind the driver that they’re not in an average Lamborghini.

Dream car status doesn’t come cheap, as the Prindiville Murcielago reportedly sold for more than a million dollars, but if you’re in the mood for a custom creation that won’t be matched by anything on the road, then give them a call and see what they can do, because apparently, the sky’s the limit.

…Sam Hubinette can make the Lamborghini Murcielago SV dance?

Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce

It’s not like the new Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce needs any help in the badass department, but just in case, they put one in the hands of Sam Hubinette and let him loose on an innocent patch of asphalt.

The result is nothing short of automotive perfection:

(And just to note, this isn’t Hubinette’s first time behind the wheels of a bull. Here he is showing off in the Gallardo LP560-4.)

…The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce is perfection?

When Lamborghini decides to build a car like the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, you don’t ask questions, you just say thank you and quietly pick your jaw up off the floor.

Lamborghini themselves even describe this car as “exceptionally purist”, and I can’t find any reason to disagree. The 670 indicates a horsepower jump from the already potent LP 640 to 670 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque out of the 6.5L V12. Extra power wasn’t the only thing Lamborghini managed to squeeze out of the package though, as more than 220 lbs of weight savings have occurred, leaving the car with a 0-62 time of just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 212 mph. However, if you opt for the larger “Aeropack Wing”, the added downforce will limit you to only 209 mph.

Minor, yet still stunning details include a new engine cover with three hexagonal, transparent polymer plates supported by a carbon fiber framework, and an interior that is upholstered entirely in Alcantara with stitching that matches the exterior color of the car. Finally, the fighter pilot theme is carried over from the Reventon, with landing strip accents on the seats and floor panels.

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce isn’t a car that anyone needs, but when it takes an entire breath of air to say the very large and very Italian name, and each word sounds faster than the next, you know it’s a car that almost everyone is going to want.

…The Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition is one bad bull?

Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition

It’s definitely not a style that matches everyone’s tastes, but I wouldn’t turn down an Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition if someone gave one to me!

The car, which takes Lamborghini’s already potent Murcielago LP640 and kicks it up to eleven with a new ECU, new headers, new camshafts, modified cylinder heads, high flow catalytic converters and mufflers, butterfly-valve controlled exhaust cut-outs, and special air filters that bring the car up to 710 hp, also includes a host of other do-dads and whatnots that make it truly one of a kind.

Or so LP710 owners thought before the Christian Audigier edition came along (or rather, five of them) giving the already exclusive car an extra helping of exclusivity.

Each of the new ‘haute-couture’ Lamborghinis are done in matte black on the outside, and then Audigier (of Ed Hardy fame) custom designs an airbrush exterior and a stitched interior to the customer’s specifications.

Power and exclusivity are never a cheap combination, but this is a special case, as each of the five cars to be made will set you back an estimated $690,000! As a result, don’t expect to see this car outside of a well groomed country club lawn or art exhibit/museum near you!

…The Zenvo ST1 is one fast ride?

Zenvo ST1

It may look like the combination of a VW GTI grill, Maserati Corse hood, Lamborghini Murcielago side scoops, Lexus IS-F gill slits, Ferrari F599 quarter windows and F430 side mirrors, Nissan 370Z roof and GT-R taillights, but when you’ve got 1,104 horses of turbocharged AND supercharged power under the hood, no one’s really going to see anything but a blurry view of the rear bumper.

Called The Zenvo ST1, this Danish supercar has been in the works since 2004, but is just now going through its final stages of testing and is expected to see the light of day (all 15 of them) some time in early 2009.

Zenvo ST1 Detail

Specs include the twin-charged 7.0-liter V8, six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of carbon fiber to keep the weight down, and stats come in at 3.2 to 62 mph, 120 mph in under nine seconds, and a top speed of 233 mph.

No pricing information is currently available, but if you have to ask…
