Beijing Auto Show Coverage: Introducing the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SV China Limited Edition


Limited to only ten cars worldwide, the car, as beautiful as it is, seems to be another one of those meaningless limited editions designed to attract rich old men shopping around for a bragging accessory more than anything else.

What’s more, not only does the car come with it’s own numerical serial number plate attached on the inside, it also has the name of its owner on it – instantly stamping its seal of self-indulgence.

Now with the car having its own special edition for the Chinese market, it makes it the second (it should be accurate…we haven’t been keeping count though) supercar brand to do so – first being Ferrari with that Great Wall of China design it had on a 612 last year. Not the best looking edition but hey, what do we know right?

Thankfully Lamborghini didn’t bother paying real tribute to the country, instead, just running a thick Orange line down the length of the car saying it was meant to represent an erupting volcano.We don’t buy it, but then again…we don’t care because the 670-4 SV still looks as mean and delicious as the other colour combinations we’ve seen on the market.

Performance figures have been kept the same but for the benefit of those who aren’t familiar with them, the larger bull has 670 hp from a 6.5 liter V12 heart and with a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs), the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lbs) per hp. It vaults itself from zero to 100 km/h in just 3,2 seconds and hits top speed at 342 km/h.

With only 10 put up for sale, we’re very certain all of them would have been spoken for by now.

When asked about the brand’s presence in China, Mr Stephen said “Automobili Lamborghini’s strong performance at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show and its launch of a special edition of the flagship Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce exclusively for the Chinese market underscore our unwavering commitment to China and the development of a super sports car culture here. Last year, Automobili Lamborghini achieved 11 percent growth in China. At the beginning of this week on 20th of April, we have launched our seventh Automobili Lamborghini China dealership in Shenzhen. The inauguration of our eighth showroom in Xiamen will come soon. It is our pleasure that we can share our passion for Lamborghini with China’s super sports car drivers, collectors and fans.”

So naturally, they took the opportunity to launch their newest creation for the first time in Asia at the Beijing Auto Show – the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera.

We know how much you guys love pictures and we also know how much our readers appreciate it when we take the time to upload only high-resolution pictures onto our Flickr account for easy access. So we didn’t want to ruin anything and decided not to put the blogs watermarks on the three pictures given by Lamborghini themselves.

Make sure you enjoy them in glorious detail here and spread the word about this blog.

ANNOUCEMENT

Burning Rubber is looking to get a little more serious but the name “Burning Rubber” seems to be pretty darn popular, so we’ll need to think of a new name for the blog pretty soon.

If anyone of you, our dear treasured readers, have an idea of an appropriate name for our automotive blog that isn’t like most of the existing ones out there, please do email us at contribute.br@gmail.com with the subject titled “Burning Rubber is so yesterday…call it this instead!”.

We invite anyone and everyone to get creative in coming up with a truly commendable and creative name for an automotive blog carrying the latest news, reviews and a little something we’d like to keep under wraps for the time being.

Restassured your efforts will be rewarded. We’ll be picking only one winner obviously, but as a sign of how much we appreciate the time taken to think of a name, we’ll be giving out automotive memorabilia as prizes to the top two suggested names! We aren’t earning anything from the blog so we really can’t afford to be shelling out more cash to sponsor the second runner up and the third as in most traditional competitions.

Churning out names not your thing?

Instead, you’ve got pictures from a supercar gathering and have no idea what to do with them? You’re just plain bored at home and suddenly have been struck with the best auto story angle? Whether it’s your neighbour’s hot daughter parking like she was backing up a 18-wheeler or an interesting link you found on the web, don’t hesitate to send us an email at contribute.br@gmail.com and we’ll try to work things out with ya!

Remember guys, we started this because we wanted something entertaining and fun here…something that seems to be missing in this part of the region. So do lend us your support and know that we’re always willing to listen to suggestions of any sort anyone of you might have.

So send in your feedback to us at giveusfeedback.br@gmail.com . We’ll reply you back!
