The flagship V-12 Murcielago ushered in a new age for Lamborghini yet delivered the captivating charisma that enthusiasts of the Italian marque have forever yearned for. It pushed the envelope in terms of technology and intuitive intelligence, was the last model for the beloved Bizzarrini 12-cylinder engine, and it captured the low slung, wide-body swagger of Lambo with a more modern curve to the previously severe wedge. Two decades have passed and this divine supercar has already begun its ascent in value, an ascent that will undoubtedly pierce the stratosphere in our lifetime. Of the 400 examples produced in 2004, only a hundred were destined for our shores and a mere 31 of those cars were equipped with the highly sought-after gated six-speed manual gearbox that true Lamborghini aficionados continue to lust after.

The Murcielago was brilliantly developed as the V-12 leading successor to the Diablo. At the end of the Countach and throughout the tenure of the Diablo, Lamborghini had gone through a handful of owners and the famed Italian marque lacked a cohesive vision at the helm. A watershed moment, the "Mercy" was the first V-12 to be released under the ownership of Audi. While there were some initial detractors among enthusiasts, all fears were cast aside upon its debut. The Murcielago captured all the Italian panache and Lamborghini swagger in its incendiary styling while its 6.2-litre, Bizzarrini powertrain was augmented by well-integrated technical brilliance that smacks of innovative German engineering. The Luc Donckerwolks-designed carbon fiber body, enfolded around a tubular space frame, captured a classic and imposing Lamborghini silhouette, complete with trademark scissored doors, evocative deep intake scoops below the door panel, and just the right softening of edges for a modern supercar of the new millennium. The cabin exudes pure Italian luxury with yards of supple leather, Alcantera, enhanced ergonomics and myriad enhancements including modern climate control. The performance advancements were equally enticing. A rear spoiler as well as 'bat wings' automatically deployed to offer enhanced aerodynamics and air flow for engine cooling. The car was equipped with a front axle lift system that allowed the body to rise for curbside exit; this is also quite handy when you're loading this beauty onto a trailer. The overall performance of the car is staggering, aside from quite intuitive handling, the almost overwhelming power of the 572 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 479 foot-pounds of torque results in a 0 to 60 start of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 206 miles per hour for a siren song of sheer automotive cicada. Who wouldn't want to manually shift all twelve of those cylinders.

A virtually flawless, gated six-speed manual example with under 22,000 original miles, VIN ZHWBU16M34LA01266 was completed in June of 2004. Its matching-numbers 6.2-litre, V-12 engine, with firing sequence 1-7-4-10-2-6-12-3-9-5-11, for the order of cylinder firing, is mated to its gated six-speed for fire-breathing 12-cylinder action and sheer, knuckle-whitening enjoyment. The beautiful carbon-fiber engine bay is topped with flawless and sleek, four-panel slats over the rear engine compartment above the centered, factory-option sport exhaust for the ultimate in rear-end styling.

In 2008, with approximately 1,500 miles, a vehicle backed into the passenger door resulting in a dent. The owner demanded of the insurance company that the car be air-freighted to the Lamborghini factory in Italy for replacement. Texas State Farm Insurance determined the most cost effective resolution was to pay the owner a full claim, resulting in a total loss. CARFAX® notes this loss in January of 2009. Immediately thereafter, a proper factory door was sourced and installed, bringing this Murcielago back to original presentation. Following this, the car was driven, enjoyed and serviced in North Carolina where it was issued a clear and unbranded title in January of 2015.

Most recently, the powertrain has undergone a full, $4,800 servicing and documented PPI inspection, with accompanying receipts and undercarriage photographs, at Norwood Auto Italia in Carrollton, Texas. The new Pirelli tires, wrapped around original forged Speedline Corse wheels, have recently been mounted, balanced and aligned. Dry ice detailing to the undercarriage, wheel wells, underbody panels, engine, and mechanical components as well as interior detail with Alcantara cleaning has been conducted by Sub Zero detail at a cost of over $4,000. In short, this Murcielago is as pristine as the day it left the Sant'Agata floor. The front boot is as-new and surprisingly spacious enough to accommodate a road trip up the coastal switchbacks of the Pacific Coast Highway with ease.

Robed in original Giallo Evros, yellow paint code 0055, with desirable, factory-option bi-color black leather with yellow deviate stitching and accents, the look of this car simply screams, "Lamborghini, have Mercy!" One of the most alluring cars to ever don the charging bull, this gated, six-speed Lamborghini Murcielago is the epitome of the modern classic; it is spectacular in presentation and is ready to hit the night club, grace the show field and draw admiring eyes all the while appreciating in desirability and importance.
