Ed’s Car History: 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster

In the 2000 remake of Gone in Sixty Seconds the characters refer to the hero car, the “Eleanor” Shelby GT500 Mustang, as Nicholas Cage’s character’s “unicorn” car because of its elusive nature in resisting capture. Most car enthusiasts have a unicorn car of their own that they have always wanted and come dangerously close to purchasing but have never been able to lock down.

For me this has been an orange Lamborghini Murcielago. When I first saw the reviews of the original Murcielago in 2001 I was immediately drawn to it. I knew that if I could fit, I had to have one. I drove my first one in 2003 and the first time I tried to buy one (an 02) was 2007. That deal fell through because at 21 years old, it was quite a stretch for me. I tried to buy another one (a 2003) in 2007. In 2008 I tried to buy a manual transmission 2007 LP640 coupe which I tried to buy again in early 2010. In 2009 I started trying to buy another 2007 coupe which continued until the end of 2010. For one reason or another each of these cars didn’t work out.

A few weeks ago I heard about another car that might be available. I needed one that had a few miles on it to get to the price that I needed. This one had about 24k miles and sounded like a great car. I spent the last few weeks getting more information and arranging the financing on it and a few days ago, I bought the car.

It is a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster in Arancio Atlas (pearl orange) over Nero Perseus (black). It has E-Gear, Carbon Fiber Interior, Orange Q-Citura Stitching, Silver Hermera Wheels, Carbon Fiber Engine Bracing, the Branding Package, and several other options. The car is immaculate and had over $25k in service done within the past year so it is ready to go.

Here are some pictures of the car:

    How much did you get the car for?

      Well I will say this – buying any Murcielago is a stretch given what I make so it took a special deal for the stars to align and for the deal to work. Ultimately no car will ever be worth more to you than your dream car so, for me, this is the most valuable car in the world.

    Sounds like the journey to capture the “unicorn” has finally concluded with a happy ending. What a great story… and very cool car, can’t wait to check it out in person!

    Somehow you managed to put an Italian legendary icon into your garage. Great job Ed, you inspire and motivate so many of us. (me especially) I couldn’t take my eyes off of it at caffeine and octane. Keep it up!

    Hey Ed, how does the car feel to your Gallardo? Also you need to get a 458 Italia in the next few years.

      Matt, I love the car. It is not as nimble and agile as the Gallardo but it is a ton of fun and a great car to drive. The drama and excitement of the big bull is impossible to find anywhere else. I love the 458 and there may be one in my future but for now, I am in love with the orange Murci! Thanks for the comment.
