Lamborghini Murciélago: A Manual V12 Legend Tested by Throttle House

The Lamborghini Murciélago, a worthy successor to the legendary Diablo, roared onto the North American scene in 2002, leaving an indelible mark on car enthusiasts. This V12 mid-engine supercar was the last Lamborghini to offer a V12 engine paired with a manual transmission, cementing its status as a special piece of automotive history.

The Murciélago boasts a 6.2L naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces 575 horsepower—a figure that remains impressive, especially considering the car’s 2002 release. Adding to its distinction, the Murciélago featured a pioneering all-wheel-drive system, a rarity for high-performance Lamborghinis at the time.

Throttle House recently showcased a 2002 Lamborghini Murciélago on their YouTube channel, modified with a Liberty Walk kit. This kit includes a more aggressive front bumper, side skirts, spoiler, and diffuser. In their video, they take the modified Murciélago for a drive, exploring its legacy and the thrilling driving experience it offers.
