The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 with a V12 6.5 litre engine develops 640 horsepower and is capable of rocketing you from standstill to a hundred kilometres per hour in just 3.4 seconds. It is probably one of the meanest supercars to greet the motoring world when it was released, like how a proper Lamborghini should.
But what if you take the already superb LP640, crank things up and make it even meaner and wilder? Introducing the twin turbo Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 from California based tuner SP Engineering. This bad boy is the end result of a build after months and months of research and development. The car actually belongs to the owner of SP Engineering, who prior to this build, thought that his LP640 was a bit pedestrian after getting his hands on a couple of highly boosted 600 all-wheel horsepower Nissan GT-R’s.
The aim of the build is to substantially increase the LP640’s power output while retaining the musical wonders of the 6.5 litre V12 engine and the elegant look of the standard LP640’s engine bay. And boy have they succeeded. Not only that the twin turbocharged v12 now produces 700 horsepower and 894 Nm of torque at all four wheels, the overall engine bay with the two turbos and all the necessary components is just a work of art. Utilizing all black fittings, an impressive amount of labor and love went into all the bracketry and fitment that is not seen but when examined makes others believe that Lamborghini’s engineers designed it themselves!
Soon after the completion of this project, SP Engineering received a request from an impressed customer wanting to do exactly the same setup on his LP640. The second build turned out just as good as the first one, but was completed in just half the time it took the first one as all the R&D work has been done.
Check out some videos of the turbocharged Lamborghini V12 in action and just listen to that sound!
These twin turbo LP640’s from SP Engineering are by far two of the best turbocharged Murcielago’s we have ever come across. I’ll just stop here and let the photos speak for themselves.
