World’s Highest-Mileage Lamborghini Murcielago Targeting 300,000 Miles

As supercars become faster and more advanced, they also seem to become more comfortable and possible to use on a daily basis. Rewind a decade however and range-topping supercars weren’t so forgiving.

Take the first-generation Lamborghini Murcielago for example. Installed with a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V12 engine, it is about as low as a Ford GT40 race car, longer than almost any other coupe and about as wide as a bus. When coupled with Lamborghini’s rather unrefined e-gear semi-automatic transmission, the Murcielago certainly doesn’t come to mind when you think of a car to drive every day.

Despite that, there is one Murcielago residing in the United Kingdom with over 250,000 miles under its belt and it is still going strong.

This particular example was one a long-term tester of Evo Magazine but in 2012, was wrecked after a high-speed crash during a track day. After being off the roads for three years, the Italian exotic had its chassis and roof straightened, the suspension, braking and chassis components being rebuilt and the interior entirely replaced. Just prior to the crash, the engine and gearbox had been rebuilt and thankfully, it has the available 6-speed manual.

Now that it is back on the road, the owner, a member on Piston Heads, uses it for his 180 mile commute every day and hopes to soon see it clock over 300,000 miles, making it the world’s highest mileage Lamborghini.

This is how supercars should be driven!

    Does it really count if almost nothing on the car is original anymore?

  • That Ross Chap

    One forgets just how stunning and original Murcielago is – it’s simply yet beautiful and aggressive and those two central exhausts are just staggering

  • smartacus

    300,000 miles is well over $100,000 in fuel alone.
