Edo Competition Outdoes Itself with 227mph – 365 km/h Lamborghini Murcielago LP750

Edo Competition’s previous Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-tune was a 710HP monster capable of reaching a top speed of 352 km/h or 219 mph, which apparently made it the fastest and most powerful Murcielago in the world. Now, the German tuner has gone one step further by introducing a 750HP variant that continues on to a maximum velocity of 365 km/h (227 mph).

The other performance figures are equally impressive, as the LP750 hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.7 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 24.5 seconds.

The comprehensive engine conversion that makes all this possible includes modified cylinders, new intake system with hand-made manifold and revised air ducts, high flow air filters, reprogrammed Engine Control Unit and a high performance exhaust system. The latter is made from plasma-coated stainless steel and is also available with an optional remote controlled butterfly valve system.

The 6.5-liter V12 engine sends no less than 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of peak torque to all four wheels through a new single plate clutch. However, Edo Competition offers a 40 kg (88 pounds) lighter rear-wheel drive version as well, which is said to be even more agile.

A 300+ km/h (186+ mph) supercar is never complete without an optimized aerodynamics package and the LP750 is no exception. Edo Competition says it has managed to find a good balance between high-speed stability and looks, and is especially proud of the revised rear wing complete with adjustable lip spoiler.

For good measure, the Germans also threw in a set of lightweight alloys, comprised of 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels, shod in 265/35 and 345/30 tires respectively. Unsurprisingly, Edo Competition did not release pricing for the tune.
