Lamborghini Murcielago 971

Since it was introduced in 2001, the Murcielago has been through various editions during its lifetime with each one managing to outperform the previous. The latest is the LP670-4 SuperVeloce, which will most likely be the last iteration until the car is replaced in 2012. The "base" LP 640 coupe and roadster have a standard 6.5 liter V12 with up to 640 horsepower. Like the smaller Gallardo, it also has an all-wheel drive set-up.

There are two different transmissions available: a sequential six-speed manual or a standard six-speed manual. Many argue the sequential transmission is the way to go, considering it has perfect rev matching every time you downshift. Purists, on the other hand, will still prefer the six-speed manual. The move to all-wheel drive is also a slightly controversial decision as supercars in this segment are mostly rear-wheel drive, such as the Ferrari 599 GTB. Even the famed Diablo had all-wheel drive, so the controversy is not new.

With a base price of $354,000, you will own one of the most powerful and unique road cars to ever hit the streets. This is what Lamborghini is all about: making a statement and making it loud as that V12 engine will surely leave a ring in the ears of everyone who hears it. With an exterior design that came before its time (it still looks fantastic 10 years on), Lamborghini hasn't given too many details on the replacement, reportedly called the Jota, but it will probably be more of an evolution in Lamborghini design, as opposed to a complete revolution.
