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.

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.

Held once a year the the AutoClub Speedway outside LA, the Ultimate Lamborghini Experience promises an adrenaline-filled day at the track. Just ask the local wildlife.

The roar of a Murcielago LP670 SV’s 670-hp V12 engine can send a squirrel running. Unfortunately for this little rodent, he’s running right into the path of the exotic supercar.

We won’t spoil how it ends, but let’s just say it should meet PETA standards. Or not.. what happened to the rest of his tail?
