Lamborghini Murcielago
By Simon George

Over 122,000 miles in a Murcielago? Simon George's Lamborghini has been put to good use...

    
The orange monster has rocketed past 120,000 miles and has traversed 16 countries

It was way back in issue 075 that SG54 LAM first thundered onto the pages of evo, then with a mere 64 miles on its clock. Regular readers may recall that my original plan of attack was to hang on to it for a few months, live the dream, then hopefully sell it on at a minimal loss, since Murciélagos were still rare beasts at the time. Trouble is, it just didn’t turn out like that. Over 122,000 miles later, the orange monster is still here. So what happened?

Quite early on I realised that instead of constantly shelling out, there had to be a way of generating an income from owning such a legend. Fortunately, through a bit of trial and error, I discovered that there was, and the rest, as they say, is history. So not only has this Murciélago rocketed past 120K, it’s also been driven by 1511 people on track and has traversed 16 countries in between.

Seems like a pretty good review of a well loved car..

My Truck is about to notch up 1,000,000 km too... I wonder if Mack/Renault will give me a new one like the Saab guy?

If they managed to get the stated fuel economy of the Murcielago of 28.6 l/km then this car has used 55,000 liters of fuel. Way to go. :thumbsup:
