A collaboration between two of Italy’s most iconic brands, Versace and Lamborghini teamed up in 2007 to produce a handful of limited editions Murciélago LP640 coupes and roadsters. Mechanically identical to the standard LP640, the Versace edition cars differentiated themselves from their brethren by their ornate interiors. The lower dashboard, centre console, door panels, roof lining, and seats were all trimmed in full grain Nero and Bianco nappa leather bearing Versace’s iconic Grecian motif.
Additionally, each Versace edition LP640 was fitted with black-painted Hermera wheels, a transparent glass engine cover, and Lamborghini’s optional E-Gear paddle shift gearbox. Buyers could choose between either Nero Alderbaran or Bianco Isis paintwork, as well as a contrasting Versace motif on the doors, to match the interior trim.
Only twenty examples of both coupes and roadsters would be produced, and the coupe presented here is serial number nine. Equipped with Lamborghini's 'E-Gear' transmission and finished in Nero Aldebaran paintwork with a contrasting Versace motif on the doors in white, it was destined for the European market. First registered in early 2008 it was delivered new to Monaco to the consignor and has remained with him ever since. The car has been serviced regularly at Lamborghini authorized dealerships throughout its life, with the most recent annual service taking place in September of 2020 at 24,403 km. Importantly, the clutch was replaced in June of 2018 during its annual service at a mileage of 21,624 km.
As one would expect, these cars were offered with a handful of exclusive Versace accessories, all trimmed in matching upholstery as the perfect complement to the LP640’s stunning interior. This car is accompanied by a five-piece luggage set trimmed in black leather in virtually as-new condition, with each bag labeled with the car’s serial number, 09/20, as well as a pair of new and unused Versace driving gloves.
Combining the very best of couture and automotive design, these Versace edition LP640s are the perfect synthesis of performance and style. Having been driven just under 24,500 km from new, it presents wonderfully throughout and even over a decade after leaving Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata factory, it will surely still turn heads wherever it goes.
