This is the Lamborghini Murcielago, and here's why it is ending up being an icon. Today I'm reviewing this Murcielago, and I'll show you all the many quirks and functions. I'm likewise going to get behind the wheel of the Murcielago and reveal you what it resembles to drive.

  1. What I love most about the Murcielago, other than the epic V12 sound, is how clean and smooth the design is.

    It’s very elegant. It didn’t need pointy jagged edges sticking out everywhere.

    1. Isn’t that the point of buying a Lamborghini tho? (To me) Lamborghinis aren’t refined, smooth, (conventionally) sporty cars like Ferraris, Lamborghinis feel like brute force, agressive, flashy, and honestly somewhat tasteless (when compared to contemporary Ferraris) cars, exception being the Miura

    2. My fave love if i owned a Lamborghini like this is hands down …people reactions. They may not even be car people…but they know its something special.

      Used to get similar reactions years ago when i would drive my buddys 1996 blue/white stripes Dodge Viper GTS. So many stares/points/thimb ups!

    3. yeah, the design looks exotic and wild without even trying
      its like one of those women that look elegant with little make up and not even trying hard to be fashionable
      unlike those who try SO HARD
      that’s the vibe I get from the design if you compare it with others

    1. ​@RayanMADAO Agree. I still prefer the facelifted version (the one with the nuclear-shaped taillights). That absolutely looks so timeless and futuristic. Don’t get me wrong, I love the previous version, but I love the LP even more.

  2. Under Audi’s stewardship, the Lambo’s are now more reliable, but damn, still hell on quirky! Love the colour, and the styling is sooo cool! Nice one Dougie!

  3. I’ll say this over and over again: Early/Mid 2000’s cars are absolute peak. Styling modern but yet subtle, not too focused on aerodynamics and/or track performance, manual transmissions and amazing sound notes. Even those e-gear Gallardos/Murcielagos are becoming charismatic cuz those delayed but yet slaming gear changes (mostly the downshifts) make a beatiful sound.

    If you can buy one of those rn do it cuz they’ll be worth millions.

    1. Kindly disagree.
      90s and early 00s are the dark era of car design. Fuel crisis and emission standards kicked in, but almost no one knew how to make beautiful AND useful. Murci isn’t an exception. Sure, there are some gems here and there (ah the timeless Zonda, but the design peaked around 2010.
      Even Zonda cooked very nicely with F and Tricolore.
      Reventon is just the cooler Murcielago (even if to some it’s a prototype Aventador)

  4. I absolutely love this car. It was THE supercar of my childhood and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it in any video game it appeared in. It’s everything you could ever want from a performance vehicle in my opinion. The styling is exquisite, it’s fast, it’s rare, it’s quirky, it has a wonderfully loud beautiful sounding v12 and it comes as a manual. Perfection.

  5. When the Murci first got out, i was underwhelmed and feared that Audi had tamed the raging mad bulls, especially when they came out with the Audi R8, which was a “surprisingly” hot and cool car for an Audi.
    But in hindsight, it was the last Lambo that had some connections to the brand that i grew up with (even though it went through a lot of owners like you said, but the Diablo was still being produced), and the last Lambo that i think that it is pretty and cool looking (for an “Audi Lambo”).

    Of course, they made some stinkers in the past, but you don’t expect them to do that anymore, although.. Estoque.. very reminiscent of the Jarama, for all the wrong reasons, but they really want to make it happen.
    I never knew about the history of the V12 though, that was pretty cool to know, somehow that story slipped under the radar for me through the years.
    I knew it was an own-built engine, but i did not know that it was basically the same engine every time but with some upgrades and changes.

    Either way, i hope my mom is watching this, so that she knows what i want for Christmas.

  6. This is my favorite Lamborghini ever made. My first ever video game was Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2, and since the Murciélago was the cover car, it just has a special place in my heart and if I’m ever financially stable enough to get any exotic sports car, THIS is easily my first choice. I’d love to get it in that iconic yellow color but because prices will most likely keep going up on these, I’ll pick one up in any color.

  7. Absolutely loving the collabs with Larry. Beautiful car with two of the automotive youtube icons.
    I hope to join the ranks someday.

  8. Design-wise, this was peak Lamborghini for me. It has the cool, sporty, angular styling of all Lambos since the Countach, but also has the clean, purposeful, restrained lines of the Muira. The Countach and Diablo look like a garage science experiment (which can be cool, but a bit messy looking), and the newer ones are overtly busy and angry, yet also look less distinctly Lamborghini since a few other automakers are taking the same busy design approach.

  9. Easily one of my fav Lamborghinis ever. The design alone is timeless and looks so clean and gorgeous 20 years later. Absolutely stunning on every level. Saw one on the streets of Monaco and was blown away.

    1. NFS HOT PURSUIT 2 flashback brought me here. The Murcielago still costed $14.35M cheaper than Miura. Miura in GT5 costed $15M!

  10. I cant think of two more genuine, unassuming guys in the “car fan” space. I love that they both have done so well doing something they love. Doing jobs that definitely didnt guarantee a ton of money as a livelihood.

    Really big fan of both guys

  11. I love the Murciélago and I’m so happy people see it as an icon. However, it also makes me sad because that means it’s going to keep getting more expensive, which means I won’t be able to buy one lol

  12. There’s something amazing about a nerdy car guy like Doug (or me) rising up to become an automotive icon with a catchphrase others are desperate to take a stab at imitating.

    Congratulations on all your success, Doug!

    I’ve been a fan for years and I look forward to decades to come! 😀👍

    (Oh, and the Lambo looks pretty sweet, too 😉)

  13. I drove an early murcie and it was a total let down (yellow egear roadster low miles bone stock). It looks soooo good but driving experience felt like a tractor, wasn’t that good sounding either. It was only 110k a few years ago when I test drove it. Decided to wait for a lp640 with a straight pipe with more carbon options – these cars look so special but the driving exp must be brought up on par through mods, otherwise it’s a relatively low rewarding car considering how little miles u put on it and how much u spend annually to keep it running (5-8x more than huracan easy). Now with age, they are great to look at but u bond with cars through driving and experiences instead
