German race team launches its own SV
24 July 2009

In case the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV wasn’t hardcore enough for you, German racing team Reiter Engineering has launched its own road-legal version of the recently released hypercar.

The SV's 6.5-litre V12 engine remains, although there is no word from Reiter as to whether it has boosted its 663bhp and 487lb ft.

The Murciélago Strada concept has even more carbonfibre than the standard SV, with additional use on the front splitter, rear diffuser and rear wing.

Reiter has also added race-ready suspension, brake-system and a sports exhaust, alongside new lightweight alloy wheels.

Inside, there is an Alcantara finish along with Reiter-designed sport seats and a carbon-covered fire extinguisher. An optional roll cage can also be added, which can be coated in Alcantara.

No price or on-sale details have been released by Reiter, but expect the car to cost more than the £270,000 SV, should it make production.

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
