Keyhole Porn: Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce

3-mur_sv_top

Oh, what a tease!

Truth be told modern Lambos don’t turn me on much as vehicles for (dreaming about) owning. I’m much more likely to be found thinking indecently about an azure S2 Espada, brown/bronze LP400 Countach or, of course, the Miura in any colour going.

On the other hand, the epic Murciélago’s status as a piece of sculpture is undoubted, something that was confirmed as I rolled through the press images from the Shanghai motor show.

The above shot – heavily cropped from the image below – shows the superb game of peek-a-boo that the designers have played with Thor’s voicebox, otherwise known as the Murci’s V12.

It’s just a pity that the photographer’s assistant forgot to give the louvres a once-over with some Windex…

    Agree 100% about the desirability for the older metal. I would also throw the Islero in the ring to complete my “Holy Trinity” along with the Miura and LP400 periscope.

    A great shot from the top, but for some reason when I see the closep of the engine cover, why am I reminded of the transformation chamber used by Jeff Goldblum in “The Fly”?

    Beautiful photgraphy nontheless…
