Almost every tuner can create something special for supercars but if there’s one out there who’s always just a little bit better, then it’s Edo Competition. They made the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 faster and stronger than it yet was. Thanks to Edo the Murciélago now runns the same 6.5 liter V12 but breathing out 710 bhp, back wheel drive only. Maximum torque is topped off at 700 Nm resulting in a 0 – 62 mph (100 kmh) time in just 3.2 seconds. The 0 – 125 mph (200 kmh) sprint is a fact in 10 seconds. Topspeed is above 224 mph (360 kmh). The guys at Edo said “This is the mightiest bull there ever was…”. Let’s agree with that statement! Scroll down for the full press-release and all details!
The increase in power was achieved through the use of new exhaust headers, new high flow catalytic converters, new mufflers, a new exhaust tip, new performance camshafts, modified cylinder heads and new high flow air filters.
The engine controls are reprogrammed to make ideal use of the individual modifications.
This powerful package is brought to perfection with optimized aerodynamics which enhances the stability of the mighty bull and bestows the car with an even more dynamic elegance. A newly developed and beautifully shaped rear wing with an adjustable lip completes the aerodynamics package.
A high-speed wheel and tire combination: 19 inch light alloy wheel set with special Continental high-speed tires: 225/35 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the front and 325/30 ZR 19 Continental V-max in the rear.
High performance exhaust system
A marvelous sound emanates from the edo competition stainless steel high performance exhaust system which includes a new exhaust tip. A new butterfly-valve control system – remote-controlled on request – is available, too. The more aggressive rear view is a great side-effect.
Drivetrain / clutch
edo competition has developed a new single disc clutch. Additionally the 4-wheel drive arrangement is turned into a 2-wheel drive setup. The LP 710 /2 is delivered with rear wheel drive. Weight savings of 40 kg (88 lb) and more agile handling are the result of this conversion.
