The Lamborghini Murciélago is a super­sportscar from the manufacturer Lamborghini and was first presented at the 2001 International Motor Show in Frankfurt am Main. 4099 Murciélagos were produced between 2001 and 2010.

The name Murciélago (English bat, Italian pipi­strello) comes from the fighting bull of the same name bred by Joaquín del Val de Navarra. Murciélago fought an outstanding fight against the matador Rafael Molina Sánchez in the arena of Córdoba, Spain, on October 5, 1879, which is why the animal was spared in the fight and not killed. After the fight, Murciélago was given to Anto­nio Miura for breeding.

The previous model is the Lamborghini Diablo. The design of the Murciélago was created by the Belgian Luc Doncker­wolke. Of course, the upward-opening doors and many small design elements, which are reminiscent of previous Lamborghini models, are striking on the vehicle. You can also see retractable cooling flaps behind the doors, which can be opened automatically and also at the push of a button on the center con­sole. The rear spoiler extends in two different stages depending on the speed.
The Murciélago has a tubular steel frame and a body made of sheet steel (roof and doors) and painted carbon fiber reinforced plastic.
