2004 Lamborghini Murciélago 40th Anniversary

This year, to celebrate Lamborghini’s 40th Anniversary, the House of the Raging Bull is offering a special, limited edition series of its supercar Murcielago.

The SantAgata factory is upholding the Lamborghini tradition by continuing the Limited Edition Series. After the Countach 25th anniversary edition launched in 1988 and the Diablo SE launched in 1993, Automobili Lamborghini is about to launch the Murcielago 40th Anniversary Edition. A limited amount of 50 numbered cars will be produced which will be sold predominantly in Europe, the United States and Japan.

The car will be available in the exclusive Verde Artemis (jade green) colour, with a three layer pearl effect paint and features some significant modifications – both internal and external – compared to the series production Murcielago.

The upper door moulds as well as the voletto or pillar surrounding the rear window where the petrol door is located, feature an optic carbon fibre coating.

The grey anthracite coloured wheel rims make the car look more aggressive. The car is also equipped with a newly designed exhaust system and silver grey callipers. The central wheel logo, also newly designed, accurately reproduces Lamborghinis trademark.

Last but not least, the car will have a lateral side plaque featuring the 40th Anniversary Logo as well as an internal limited edition numbered plaque located inside the rear window.

The interior is also new with an asymmetrical design. The driver’s side is equipped with Grigio Syrius (dark grey) perforated leather and the passengers side in smooth black leather.

The new accessories are completed with special floor mats featuring the 40th anniversary logo and an Alpine radio with incorporated CD player. Depending on the market, some cars will also be equipped with a satellite navigation system.
