Supercar Test Drives


The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV is the raging bull that has always alluded me! Time to fix that, and this rare SV that's fitted with an IPE exhaust sure sounds absolutely the part as we go flat out on track at Road Atlanta. What an experience hearing that V12 scream!

In fact, one of these in this very colour, Arancio Borealis, featured in my first ever YouTube video almost a decade ago, As we approach the 10 year anniversary of Shmee150, it would be wrong to not experience what it's like and especially in this environment with The Driving Club of Road Atlanta out on the circuit.

The Murcielago SV is fitted with a 6.5l naturally aspirated V12 that makes 670hp and 660nm with a 7 speed automated manual gearbox and all wheel drive. However the best bit comes from the valve controlled IPE exhaust system that sure knows how to scream away when I can put my foot down and accelerate flat out while going for some laps.

It's an awkward car, the seating position is uncomfortable, the gearbox is slow, the steering wheel is off-centre and it's starting to become a bit dated... but does that matter? NO! It's one of just 186 that was ever built, all of which bar 5-6 have the e-gear Gearbox with just a tiny number with a 6 speed gated manual.
