Remember the Murcie SV? Of course you do. It was the most hardcore of all the Murcielagos, a last hurrah before it was replaced by the Aventador. A trawl through the TG archives uncovered these pics, of the time we took one to a very sandy desert. Click through for your daily dosage of mid-engined Italian excellence.

Gawp at these pics of a Lambo Murcielago SV in the desert
A trawl through the TG archive reveals these mega pics
Wing. Available in two sizes, depending on whether you wanted outright top speed or more downforce. The difference? 212mph vs 209mph.
Sand. Gets everywhere.
In some countries it’s actually illegal to paint a supercar in a modest colour.*
*Not true in any way.
The mid-mounted V12 gave 661bhp and 487lb ft. Lambo claimed 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds.
Price? When new it was £220K or thereabouts in the UK. Seems like good value - a new Aventador is loads more.
This one has paddles, but you could have a proper manual if you wanted. We did want. Very much.
12-cylinders and an 8,500rpm readline means this car sounds just as good as you think it does. Maybe even better.
