Rear-Wheel Drive Lamborghini Murcielago Lights Up Its Tires With Ease

The Murcielago used to be the pinnacle of the Lamborghini brand last decade. Just a little over 4,000 units rolled off the assembly lines from 2001 until 2010, when it was replaced by the Aventador.

Even though it’s outdated now, the Murcielago is still drawing attention thanks, mostly, to its looks and loud, naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Even in this kind of supercars, though, some opt to go down the tuning road rather than keep them in original condition. And this particular Murcielago is a prime example of that.

Brought forward by ADV.1 Wheels, it rides on a pair of new rims, 8.5×19 and 13×20-inch in size, front and rear respectively, from the (now discontinued) Deep Concave CS Series. They have a Matte Black and Gloss Black combo, the 50/50 exposed titanium hardware option and are shod with Pirelli tires.

The most impressive tune isn’t visible, though, as this Murcielago was converted from all- to rear-wheel drive. It’s also equipped with a straight-piped exhaust system that provides it with an even deeper tone under heavy acceleration.

The cherry on top of the cake is definitely the six-speed manual transmission, which is no longer offered in modern Lamborghinis. But you can witness all of these goodies coming together to create a truly special supercar in the video that follows.

      My two favorite Lamborghini’s of ALL time (in my personal opinion),. (or at least this century) are the Murcielago & the Revention (the Revention being my favorite.).

      I used to love those rectangle mirrors on the vehicles they had. I personally miss the Lamborghini from 4 years ago. I’m not personally a fan of the facelifts to the Aventador and the Hurrican, (also not all that happy with how the Urus project turned out from the original concept it was intended to be in 2012).

      The last generation Gallardo, the first generation Aventador, The second generation Murcielago, and the Revention will reman my favorite Lamborghini’s to come out this century and I don’t think anything has really come close, or been just as stunningly cool. I’d really love to know what you all think, what has your favorite Lamborghini been?
