Lamborghini and Versace redefine Italian luxury with the Murcielago LP640-4

Up until recently, only fanatics and car enthusiasts would’ve known about the collaboration between Lamborghini and Versace. When both internationally recognised Italian brands come together, expect something special to happen and true enough, it did. The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 “Versace” remains as one of the rarest collaborations to date.

Making its debut during the Paris Motor Show back in 2006, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 “Versace” was recently sold through Silverstone Auctions for £157,500 (approx. RM860,000). While it may not sound like much, there are only 20 of the LP640-4 “Versace” around the world with eight being right-hand drive.

The exterior of the car is kept simple with the Aldebaran gloss-black paint but at the base of the doors sit the iconic Versace design. The Italian luxury fashion house incorporates its Versace Greco motif with the bi-colour Nero over Bianco leather seats, stitched to great detail. At the centre console of the LP640-4 sits a Gianni Versace logo plague — an homage to its founder.

Of course, Lamborghini wouldn’t let the Murcielago loose without putting its own touches to it. Under the hood lies a 6.5-litre V12 engine that is factory-tuned to 631hp. It can go from 0-100kph in just three seconds with a top speed of 340kph. The LP640-4 also comes with a semi-automatic 6-speed E-gear transmission, allowing you to shift in-between gears smoothly.

Each LP640-4 “Versace” Murcielago’s comes with its own matching set of Versace-branded luggage, driving shoes, and gloves. A matching watch from Versace’s Precious Items department is also available upon purchase of the automobile.

As of right now, there is no Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 “Versace” available in the market. Your next best bet is to wait until another one appears in an auction house.
