For those who find the showroom-stock Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster just a touch declassé, their rarefied tastes may now be indulged to the full. An appropriately cooler-than-thou reaction, please, for the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster Versace.


Yes, for a mere squillion bucks (Lambo/Versace do that ‘no price tag attached’ thing, which always means something eye-watering), prospective customers may personalize their cars (or pimp their rides, depending on one’s viewpoint) by choosing from a selection of specially designed cosmetic features. These include black-and-white leather seats (sorry, the real description is: opulent full grain soft nappa leather) hand-embroidered with the Versace Greek fret motif. The same stuff covers the dash and doors. The Versace-edition car also has (for the first time) a transparent hood, so plebs and princes alike may gaze in wonder at the lusty, mid-mounted V-12 engine — which really is a good thing.

And there’s a whole bunch of accessories ‘inspired’ by this joint venture. Hand-crafted exclusively in black matte calfskin, sporting stitching and edging à la française, plus a palladium-engineered tag displaying both Versace gorgon and Lamborghini raging bull logos are: a trolley bag, suit carrier, sports bag, briefcase, suitcase, gloves, driving shoes, belt, wallet, key ring, beauty case, a hat and (so the press release says) a pair of jeans. Surely that last item isn’t in black leather, because such a thing might construed as tasteless.

These baubles will be sold at Versace boutiques and selected Lamborghini showrooms (What? Some Lambo dealers are too downmarket?) from this November. Plenty of time to acquire an imagination.
