2009 Lamborghini Murcielago

Nothing says “flagship” like 631 hp, except perhaps 487 lb-ft of torque, or a 211-mph top speed. Truth be told, everything about the 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 screams excess, especially the pricetag. This mid-engine monster offers two seats by way of the iconic Lambo scissor doors, inviting you to supra-legal jaunts that have some reviewers calling this not a supercar, but a hypercar.

What else can you expect from a manufacturer that releases a caveat with its roadster not to take the car above 100 mph with the top up, just in case it flies off on the Autobahn. Say hello to sunny days, and if you’re really worried about all that speed, racing tires are, of course, optional. The Murcielago's full-time all-wheel-drive system is rearward biased normally, with 70 percent of its incredible power sent to the rear wheels, but depending on need and conditions, any amount of power can be sent front or back. That means you’ll see 60 mph in fewer than 3.5 seconds. That also means you’ll never see more than 14 mpg, even on the highway, and city mileage is just plain miserable, topping out at 9. So much for an energy crisis.

The options list is long and pricey, capable of tacking another 20% of the vehicle's already substantial $350,000 cost onto the final bill. Deleting the hard top alone will cost an additional $33,000, but then who’s counting? Since they are concerned with value, Lambo provides a healthy list of standard features as well, like 18-inch wheels, an adjustable suspension (so you don’t tear off the body work when entering the grocery store parking lot), quilted leather upholstery, and Xenon headlamps, for example.

A CarGurus contributor since 2008, Michael started his career writing about cars with the SCCA - winning awards during his time as editor of Top End magazine. Since then, his journalistic travels have taken him from NY to Boston to CA, completing a cross-country tour on a restored vintage Suzuki. While his preference is for fine German automobiles - and the extra leg room they so often afford - his first automobile memories center around impromptu Mustang vs. Corvette races down the local highway, in the backseat of his father's latest acquisition.
