Who would not take notice of the impressive Lamborghini Bruce Wayne drives whenever he's not driving his Batmobile or any of his Bat-vehicles? This exotic two door, two seater coupe is designed by Luc Donckerwolke and produced by Italian car manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. Its creation was to commemorate the company's 40th year of operation and only 50 special edition units were built in 2003.
The Murcielago Roadster was introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year and made its on-screen debut in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, with Christian Bale as the caped crusader, Batman. Having a 6.2 L version of the Lamborghini V12 engine, the Murcielago Roadster kicks off 580 horsepower. This sports car can be equipped with either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed robotized e-gear system and has the acceleration speed of 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, reaching the maximum speed of 320 km/h.
The term Murcielago means "bat" in Spanish, making it a suitable car for a Superhero disguised as the nocturnal flying mammal. Moreover, the car's scissor-opening doors pretty much resembles a bat spreading its wings, or the superhero for that matter.
In 2008, another Lamborghini Murcielago made an iconic appearance in yet another Batman movie bearing the title "Dark Knight." Alongside Batman's upgraded equipments, Bruce Wayne now drives a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe. This supercar was introduced in 2006 for 2007 model year.
Powered by a 6.5 L version of the Lamborghini V12, kicking off an impressive 640 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, accelerating from 0 to 62m/hr in 3.4 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of over 200m/hr. Now, that is unbelievable! But somehow, Lamborghini has made it possible. And what's more amazing is that despite its whopping power, this exotic car passed all European and American law regarding exhaust fumes. Of course, that was made possible by thorough modifications of the engine and exhaust system made by the research and development team of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.
And like its predecessors, the Murcielago LP640 has a permanent four-wheel drive, based on the dependable Lamborghini Viscous Traction System. Driving, handling, and stability at extreme speed are enhanced by new stabilizers and springs, as well as modified damper which is controlled electronically.
Of course, this high powered machine comes with an equally top grade security system including a reliable and larger dual circuit brake system equipped with an anti-blocking system, having an electronic brake control as well as traction control.
The list of the enhanced features of this exhilarating machine could go on forever. However, Lamborghini Murcielagos can only belong to a privileged few. Just like any other Lamborghinis, production of these supercars are limited, thus, making it more appealing for those who can afford. But driving one is not limited to those who can afford to purchase one. There are several car rentals in Las Vegas, New York, Milan, Monaco, Australia, and in some selected Asian countries.
