Lamborghini Murciélago LP640
The LP640 is an evolution of the bat, with modifications to the engine, transmission, suspension, outside of the body and the inside. The name of this version is taken from the motor position (posterior longitudinal, as in all the bat) and the horsepower figure, rounded to zero (640). At least for now, only available with the coupe bodywork.
The new engine really gives 641 hp (471 kW). With this engine, the LP 640 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.4 s and reaches 322 km / h, the data is better acceleration than top speed. A Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, which gives 626 hp and weighs 1768 kg, it takes 3.8 s in the measurement of acceleration, but reaches 334 km / h, a Porsche Carrera GT (612 hp and 1,455 kg), accelerates in 3 , 9, and reaches 330 km / h.
The power increase is due to several causes: a cylinder that goes from 6192 to 6496 cm ³; increase the diameter and the race. Another is that the engine can spin faster, gives maximum power at 8,000 rpm instead of 7,500. Another plus is that the compression ratio goes from 10.7 to 11.0.
