US & Canada Manual Lamborghini Murcielago LP640s – Where are they now?

The main reason that I started VINwiki last year was to create a platform that could facilitate researching and tracking specific cars, particularly the rare ones that I love. It has grown into a very powerful tool and each day our users discover new and exciting information about the cars they love in the app. […]

Some New Photos of the Ruf and LP640

It was a beautiful day in Atlanta so I went out with a friend to snap a few pics of the Ruf and the Murcielago. Contact Evan @atl.cars on IG if you would like some similar shots taken of your car! First, the 2006 Ruf RT12S: And the manual 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 in Grigio […]

Ed’s Car History: 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe, 6 Speed Manual

I replaced my unicorn car – the manual LP640 – with the only thing that made sense… Another one. I know there is some sentiment that the manual cars are over-hyped but I continue to beg to differ. The Murcielago in any form is the best supercar bargain out there but the sequential cars generally […]

Another Manual LP640 has appeared. This car was sold this week by Lamborghini Montreal. It is a 4th Canadian car. My list only had 3 there up until now. This one is Giallo Orion with a black interior and yellow Q-Citura. They were not sure what they had and sold the car about $100k under […]

Why are there so few manual exotic cars?

Recently I have talked a lot about the rarity of manual cars. They certainly have become conspicuous in their absence from the market place and in their increasing popularity among enthusiast circles. I had a great conversation recently with a car collector about why that was. He posited that at some point, manufacturers would notice the […]

He had been shopping for a first generation manual transmission Murcielago and had made a […]

Another stick LP640 has popped up for sale

One of the two 2007 US LP640 coupes in Balloon White has popped up for sale. This one is VIN ZHWBU37M17LA02334. I sold the other one, which had earlier been owned by Nick Cage, in 2011. That same car sold last year for around $330k with 3k more miles. This car is gorgeous, has just […]

Ed’s Car History: 6 Speed Manual Verde Ithaca 2008 LP640

I have chased a stick LP640 for nearly eight years now. I fell in love with the idea of a green stick Murci with this Verde Draco manual press car as Jeremy Clarkson drove it on Top Gear, extolling the virtues of a proper gearbox. I tried to buy a barely used Orange one in 2007 […]
