Iranians have built an exact copy of Lamborghini MurcielagoOctober 16, 2018
In Iranian Tabriz, a team of engineers led by Masoud Moradi unveiled a replica of the supercar Lamborghini Murciélago SV. The car was built by reverse engineering according to the original drawings of the Italian manufacturer.
The replica of the Murciélago SV is based on a chassis similar to the one used on the original supercar. In fact, using the data from the CAD system, the Moradi team simply “reproduced” the Lamborghini platform. In the same way, body panels were made that are practically the same as the source.
According to the local edition of Stnews, the work on the machine took four years. And most of the time engineers spent exploring original drawings. The supercar looks like a real Lamborghini Murciélago SV: it has identical dimensions, and the design uses carbon and other composite materials.
The replica is driven by a 3.8-liter V6 of the Lambda family, developed by Hyundai. Transmission and electronics are also borrowed from the Korean manufacturer. Engine power is not reported. Also unknown dynamic characteristics, but Moradi is confident that the supercar can accelerate to 280 kilometers per hour.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce was equipped with a 6.5-liter atmospheric V12, the return of which was 670 forces and 660 Nm of torque. From a spot to a hundred, a supercar can accelerate in 3.2 seconds. Maximum speed – 342 kilometers per hour.
If the engineering team succeeds in finding investors, the company will be able to produce 50–100 replicas annually. Also in the future, the car will be equipped with a V8 or V10 engine.
