Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster
takes off in The Transporter 2
The Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster is well on its way to becoming a movie star. After the worldwide on-screen debut in Batman Begins, the supercar will also appear in another 2005 summer blockbuster: The Transporter 2, directed by Louis Leterrier, written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen and produced by EuropaCorp & Fox.
The hero in this film is Frank Martin (Jason Statham), a private chaffeur with a Special Forces background and incredible driving skills who lives his life by a strict set of rules. He drives the family members of a US Senator who has recently been appointed as the President’s new Drug Czar. When the opportunity arises and Frank needs something fast and aerodynamic, he picks a Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster to save the day in the final climatic car chase of the film.
Powered by a 12 cylinder, 6.2 litre, 580hp engine, the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster can be equipped with a manual gearbox or with a robotized e.gear system. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km in 3.8 seconds and it can reach a maximum speed of 320 km/h.
Speed to give you wings. Which might make you wonder which is faster: the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster or a Gulfstream G3?
