All Lamborghini‘s are rare and exotic machines, but some are just extra special.

Take the Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce (SV) for instance. This car was the last hurrah for the aging Murcielago model, which had been in production for about 8-years.

So to give it a proper send-off, Lamborghini decided to produce 350 examples of a lighter, more powerful Murcielago and labeled it the SV.

This car, thanks to its 6.5-liter, V12 motor, which produced 670-hp and 487-lb/ft of torque, is capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and tops out at an insane 212 mph.

So it is a mental supercar, and that is exactly how we like our Lamborghini’s. At this point, we are sure you’re tempted to buy one. To assist you with that, we have found the only ‘Red’ Murcielago SV ever produced (at least in this exact shade of red). According to the seller, Lamborghini Miami, this car is number 240/350 and has covered just 1400-miles.

As for the price, hope you’re sitting down for this; it’s $378,950. Carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow brake calipers and the optional large rear wing are included in that price, but it’s still a little steep.

So if you’ve got the money and are wondering what could cure your boredom, this 2010 model year SV might just be the antidote you’re looking for.
