In the world of matte wraps, the colors black, white, grey, blue, green and red maybe come to mind as acceptable finishes. Recently, a matte gold Nissan GT-R surfaced that made us wonder how other cars would look in non-traditional shades. Well, an answer to our curiosity has shown up with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV exotic covered in a matte brown – yes, brown – finish. And surprisingly, it looks rather cool on the Lamborghini, contrasted by matte black accents and a nice set of gold wheels.
It would probably be way too easy to crack jokes comparing this Lamborghini to a Tootsie Roll, but really shows off how nice of an exotic the Murcielago is, being able to pull off a color such as matte brown. Apparently, the owner of the SV is a huge fan of brown-finished cars, having a Diablo 6.0 SE in his stable that’s also brown. In a way, having his white SV rewrapped in matte brown was a homage to his Diablo. A rare color for a modern exotic, we’re pleasantly surprised that our initial reaction wasn’t one of revulsion.
After building a twin-turbo Lamborghini LP640 that laid down 1000-hp, Underground Racing has just announced even bigger and better things for the LP670-4 SV.
Rumor has it that Underground Racing wants to claim the title of fastest Murciélago in the world with this LP670-4 SV. Their engineers are claiming that they’ll be putting down 1,100-hp out of this beast. We’re guessing it won’t be long until we feast our eyes on dyno videos and some high-speed runs. And to top it off, we’re digging the fact that this LP670-4 SV is paired up with a set of HRE Wheels; anything less on an 1,100-hp Lamborghini would be blasphemous.
