Fastest ever Murcielago revealed

edo competition has unveiled a 750hp version of the Lamborghini Murcielago.

It's merely 18 months since the German tuner edo competition produced the fastest Lamborghini Murcielago to date, by extracting 710hp from an LP 640's V12 engine - thus creating the LP710.  Since then, it's been continually experimenting with the model, and has just revealed its monstrous LP750, yup, with 750hp.

The extra power has been generated by modifications to the cylinder heads of the 6.5-litre V12, as well as the installation of a high flow airbox. Prior modifications to the standard LP 640 include high performance exhaust headers, high flow catalytic converters, more aggressive camshaft profiles and a completely reprogrammed ECU.

These latest upgrades bring its already phenomenal top speed of 352km/h up to 365km/h, as well as enabling a 0-100km/h sprint time of only 3.1 seconds - with just a further 6.6 seconds getting you to 200km/h.

Complementing the engine upgrades are an enhanced aerodynamics package that is designed to improve high-speed stability and of course add to the appearance. A new high-speed light alloy wheel and tyre set up is also included.

Upon special request, the crazy Lambo can be converted from all-wheel drive to rear-wheel only, resulting in a 40kg weight saving.
