Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce
Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce
About this creation




Even supercars don’t live forever and usually big “song and dance” is made about their retirement. In case of the well-known Lamborghini Murciélago “big bang” would be the more appropriate term. Limited to 350 units, the Italians from Sant’ Agata Bolognese released the ultimate version of the V-12 monster: the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce.



It’s obvious that the new Lamborghini is almost unbeatable in the category “Cars with looooong names”… But is it just big talk? Is a long name the only quality of this Raging Bull? And what’s this puzzle of letters and numbers all about?


“Murciélago” means “bat” in Spanish… Wait, I think the car is from Italy?! – Right, but as the Raging Bull is Lamborghini’s emblem, their car’s names are related to the corrida, the Spanish bullfight. In most cases the name refers to a famous bull (e.g. Diablo, Miura or Gallardo). On October 5, 1879, a fighting bull named “Murciélago” survived 28 sword strokes in a fight against matador Rafael "El Lagartijo" Molina Sanchez. The onlooking crowd was overwhelmed by the bull’s passion and spirit – and saved him from death.


“LP” is the abbreviation for Italian “longitudinale posteriore” – “longitudinal behind” and refers to the engine’s mounting place.


A propos engine… “670-4” stands for 670 hp and 4-wheel drive…you see, we came to the other qualities now.


“SV” is NOT for “laSt Version”… no, this is abbreviated for Italian “SuperVeloce”.Oh,… how can I translate this? Let’s see… I think it reads “ mind-blowing, pants-wetting, face-distorting ultimate high speed”…get it?


Acceleration from 0-100 kph / 62 mph takes only 3,2 seconds and stops at a top-speed of 337 – 342 kph (depending on the rear spoiler). Impressing data that points out: “SuperVeloce” is definitely not an overestimation of the car’s capabilities.


Due to the excessive use of carbon , weight was reduced by 100 kg. At the same time they increased the engine power by 30 hp. That’s nearly 90 (!) hp more than the first Murciélago from 2001.

OK, enough said about the original…let’s talk about…



The model…foreword

Before I start to illustrate literally every single brick to you I have to send a big “THANKS!” to a very good friend over the years, “Mr. Lamboman” Firas Abu-Jaber out of two reasons.
First, I used the same design for the headlights / front as he did on his outstanding Murciélago LP 640 ( -> http://mocpages.com/moc.php/138798 ). Well, you can say I almost copied it, that’s true. But I think Firas’ built just perfectly resembles the original (and I guess I had about 143.876 tries with wedge plates – all unsatisfying!). On first glance you might think I used Firas’ designs on the whole car…but look closely and you’ll see lots of differences – at least I hope you will!

Second reason: when you consider the numbers of large scale Murciélagos and particularly Gallardos mushrooming on MOCpages it is very clear that Firas’ Lambos (and other cars) have inspired lots of new builders. His creations never fail to blow your mind and help to improve your own building skills. That’s why (almost every one of) my upcoming cars will be 16-wide… lesson learned :-) So once again: Thanks, Firas!

Alright, it is high time to show pics and add some explaining lines now.



Let’s uncurtain the beauty…








The model



Exterior




It looks so menacing…



The last beams of a setting sun...



Maybe I should lenghten the wheelbase by one stud?



One of my goals was to make the huge radiators visible through the rear mesh – just like in the real car. Turned out better than expected, although they do not spin… Chrome was the best color choice.





…and lights switched on.







Maybe my favorite perspective.


Details





To get the right shape I had to “remold” (cut) some wedgeplates just a bit… stupid studs in wrong places. As the lower front skirt is almost completely black, this pic reveals the complex clutter of splitters, guide plates and intakes.



Another goal was to smoothen the sills and lower side intakes and get rid of 3 or 4 long wedge bricks.



In this “smoothing process” I also reworked the …er, “cooler housings”; they protrude just half a stud and add to the sleek look. When you look at the real car you will notice the different rear end of those housings. Body colored on the driver’s side (where the oil cooler is located)…



…and black carbon fiber on the passenger’s side.

Note the rims: thanks to a tip from my buddy Sven I bent the spokes a bit – et voilà, almost exactly like the real car!




The famous “bat wing” air intakes can be raised – certainly!



Beyond doubt, the rear was a hard clout. All those “aerodynamic aids” like diffusors, wings and plates was hard to transfer into bricks. I ended up with a 13-wide creation with hinges to angle the fences. These were nesessary to make the already mentioned radiator fans visible through the mesh… and I had to built upside down. The huge exhaust outlet and the diffusor is again angled. At last I am very content of how it turned out.



Once more.



As has been mentioned, the top-speed of the “SuperVeloce” depends on the type of rear spoiler. You can order a rather small lip to increase top-speed or you choose the big spoiler for a better handling and increased downforce at very high speeds. Since the debuting model had the big”Aeropack Wing” – mounting brackets and wing are made of carbon fiber -, I decided to built this type…and it fits the car much better than the smaller version in my opinion.


Engine




Bonnet opened. On the original, the bonnet is a lightweight artwork of cooling vents and hexagonal polycarbonate “windows” mounted on a carbon fiber frame. To complex to built every single detail, I tried to capture the “honey-comb” shape at least.



I always pay a lot of attention to mold the engine as accurate to the original as possible. Unfortunately, this time I have to disappoint you. Due to restricted space I just managed to built the air filters, ducts and manifolds.



Home of 670 merciless and pushing horses…



Openable parts





…include front hatch, bonnet, the mentioned “bat wing” air intakes and off course the famous…





…scissor doors. Using the new type of fenders made it possible to fix the door hinge almost on top of the wheelarch. Just like on the real car, the door swings out of the way and allows easy access to the cockpit – without headaches and goose eggs ;-)



Passenger’s side door detached to show lining and speaker.



Interior




The cockpit is dominated by black Alcantara with accents in body paint and carbon fiber.



Decent strokes of dark bluish gray add some color to the black drabness.



The driver is informed by digital gauges in a jet fighter like “glass cockpit”. No sickers used.





It’s not all about top-speed… Precarious situations require actions at cyberspeed. Equipped with carbon ceramic brake disks the size of family pizzas, the “SuperVeloce” slows down nearly as fast as it accelerates. To secure the passengers the racing seats provide 4-point harnesses.


Lighting system



I bet you already realized that I incorporated Power Functions in this model. Time to shed light on it…



A look on the underside points out why there wasn’t sufficent space to add a detailed engine. The battery box is really fat and the rear axle and frame is literally built around the box.



You can see the radiator fans and the complex rear diffusor. Small strips of duct tape prevent the 2x2 tiles from coming off to easy…they are attached on one stud. A bit flimsy.

Here you will find the “master switch” and unfortunately just the right amount of space to plug ONE pair of LEDs… Oh, another problem! There was no way to squeeze in a second plug…



The answer to this problem: I didn’t attach the LEDs to the battery box…but the PF switch. The wiring runs from the battery box through a “tunnel” in the cockpit’s center console to the front hatch where you’ll find the switch. Two pairs of LEDs are plugged to it; one splits to feed the headlights, the other one runs the whole way back through the “tunnel” again, splits and powers the rear lights.



Night shots



No computer rendering! I used a second camera with a special “night setting” without flashlight. Quite dramatic…











Well, that’s it. Without a doubt, the “SuperVeloce” is the most ambitious project I faced so far. It tore my hair and gave me sleepless nights…but there was a light at the end of the tunnel…



________________________________________________________________

Thanks for your patience. I hope you enjoyed reading and discovering the “SV” as much as I (mostly) did while building.

Hmmm... I think the front bumpers could be pretty easy, actually. I could easily make a Zonda, I just have none of the right pieces! I need to get some more Racers sets. So do you think you could do an R/C something? I'm gonna try to get the Track Turbo RC and build a Lamborghini or something onto the base. But first I have to wait 3 months cause I bought NFS Hot Pursuit for Wii (Which SUCKS do not get it) on credit from my mom's allowance...

Quoting George Arden This thing might get a first place ribbon! I think that your next project should be either: -A Pagani Zonda Tricolore -Or a RC Lambo Murcielago SV (if thats even possible ;-))
Thanks... some kind of Zonda would be good for sure, but the front fenders are not easy to replicate. An RC car in this scale, yeah! Unfortunately, I doubt we'll see this very soon: LEGO wheels are to wide to get a good looking steering squeezed in there and second is the battery box, to large, to heavy... and I don't have the money at hand to buy the rechargeable batt-box. Maybe one day though... Cheers, Jens

Quoting Dalton Brooks not saying you would but if you were to sell this how much would you sell it for?
Hm, let's see... the original cars MSRP is about 470.000 US$ plus extras. The model is about 1/16 scale... OK, now divide 470.000 by 17 ;-)___ This is NOT for sale, but considering the parts alone (including PF lights) plus hours of work, it definitely won't be a cheap deal. By the way, it does no longer exist as I needed parts for the next project(s). Bye & please stop asking this kind of questions, Jens

@ Dalton ___Haha, you got me there... OK, to answer your questions: We are from Lower-Saxony in the northern part of Germany. Most of our models stay intact after building - at least for a bit of time. I'm "reworking" some MOCs just now, but the Murcièlago is still in all it's beauty :-D I cannot give you proper instructions on how to fit in the seatbelts...just try & you will come to a solution! It's not that complicated to fix that stretcher-rubber-thingy. Cheers, Jens

Thanks mate! With so many pics I thought a wallpaper wasn't necessary. Maybe I'll add one later... You're right about the "SV" sign. But there are some pics around that show cars with an additional big "SV" logo behind the doors. Maybe it's an option or custom vinyl? http://www.autogespot.com/nl/viewimages.php?id=c214748364805092009000459 Cheers, Jens

Quoting David John Oh, and 670 refers to the ps(whatever that is), not the horse power.
*Hehehe* Where have you heard or read this? Maybe a German site? PS is the abbreviation for the German term "Pferdestärken"...that translates to - guess what - "horse power". In Italian it's "CV" = Cavallo vapore, in French "ch" = chevaux and so on. The 670 does refer to the engine's power, as with the Murciélago LP 640 or the Gallardo LP 560-4 etc., too! Ciao, Jens

Quoting Sanket Panda Nice! Can you post instructions
Weird, you're always asking for instructions... but there's not a single creation on your MOCpage! Hm, maybe use your own imagination & creativity? That's the idea of LEGO! Building my cars is always a process of trial and error and the best ideas come while building the cars. So, in order to make instructions, I would have to tear it apart and put it together once more...I think you get the point? Never say never, but no instructions for any of our cars so far!!! Bye, Jens

Quoting David John By the way, is there any particular set with which you made this?
No, not really. There are several sets I can recommend...and for the missing stuff you'll have to visit bricklink.com As you can see, the hubcaps come from the FXX, the new LEGO-Gallardo set and the Ferrari F430 Challenge set are best choice to get piles of yellow bricks. And never underestimate CREATOR sets - lots of usefull pieces for less money, as you don't have to pay licenses. Keep bricking, Jens

Quoting Ape Fight Not sure I like the cut bricks (I think the point of Lego is to use the bricks) but otherwise this is stunning. The lights really set this apart, it looks fantastic!! 9/10 (I feel bad its not a '10' score as it really should be, but I think modding pieces to suit your needs is cheating a bit). Despite that this is the best looking model I've seen for ages : ) Beautiful creation
Thanks. When it comes to the question if cutting or painting bricks is OK, the discussion will always be biased and end resultless. In my opinion, LEGO always cuts and glues parts together to "invent" some new pieces - so It's OK to "modify" your bricks in order to achieve a more realistic model. And to be honest, Firas just did the same (It's not my intention to denigrate him!!!). Best wishes, Jens

Quoting Law Hon Kin Speechlessly awesome. I have been waiting for this Murcie for some time, and it makes me feel worth to wait! I love the way you done the front and side, especially the side intake, it is very realistic. The rear ending is awesome too, but I think that the spoiler till lacks of something, hmmm maybe your version is a bit too huge? And I'm wondering that are you starting building in 16 wide? I'm still sticking to the old and original styled 14 wide style. Anyway, great creation though. It will go to my blog later. You may have a visit! Cheers -Kin
Hey, old friend! Maybe you are right...the spoiler sits a bit to high, due to the old hinge-arms I used for the brackets. On the other hand - in combination with the robo-arms - they seemed pefectly to get the look of the real thing. 16-wide...well, as you also increase the wheelbase length you have much more possibilities. Ferraris & Lambos are really broad, so it's true to scale building them 16-wide; same matter with the wheels. Greetings, Jens
