Gated Manual Lamborghini Murcielago Hits the Market at $1 Million

There are only a select few Lamborghini Murcielago LP640s in North America equipped with a stick shift.

  • The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 with a six-speed manual transmission is an exceptionally rare and highly coveted model.
  • A Canadian dealership is offering one for an astonishing $1,022,733 (CA$1,399,990).
  • This hefty price tag reflects the vehicle’s rarity, low mileage of just 10,283 km, and its desirable features.

The Unsung Hero Turned Collector’s Gem

Unlike the numerous limited-edition variants of the Lamborghini Murcielago, the LP640 was not one of them.

However, rare examples equipped with a six-speed manual transmission have become some of the most sought-after and valuable Murcielagos on the market.

Unlike the majority outfitted with the convenient E-Gear automatic transmission, this rare manual variant has become a highly coveted collector’s item.

Given the supercar’s rarity, August Motorcars in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, is asking a staggering CA$1,399,990 (approximately US$1,022,733 at current exchange rates).

This is a mind-blowing figure, especially considering that other Murcielago LP640s on the market typically sell for between $250,000 and $400,000.

The dealer reports that this car has only 16,550 km (10,283 miles) on the odometer. It features optional bucket seats and an interior upholstered in Bianco Polar white leather with diamond stitching.

The Lamborghini also boasts optional carbon fiber accents, including the center tunnel, door sills, driver zone, and engine cover. Additionally, it is equipped with carbon ceramic brakes, embossed headrests, and a Kenwood double-din head unit.

The Endangered Species: Mid-Engined Supercars with Naturally Aspirated V12s and Manual Transmissions

Mid-engined supercars with naturally aspirated V12s are becoming increasingly rare.

While the Lamborghini Revuelto and Ferrari 12Cilindri both feature twelve cylinders, neither comes with a manual gearbox. The Murcielago’s 6.5-liter V12 is renowned for its incredible sound, and experiencing it with a stick shift must be extraordinary.
