Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 world premiere - Geneva Motor Show

Geneva Motor Show: Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 world premiere - Autoblog: "Alberto reports that the Lamborghini stand has been absolutely mobbed for two days. But perseverance paid off, and he managed to grab these shots of Lamborghini's latest - the Murcielago LP640.

The resurgent Italian supercar builder seems to be thriving under the Audi umbrella, and this new model certainly won't hurt. Full press release (and more pictures, of course) after the jump, but a few teasers for the impatient:

* 0-62 mph 3.4 seconds
* top speed 211 mph
* 6.5-liter aluminum V12 with drive-by-wire multipoint fuel injection (640 hp at 8,000 rpm, 488 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm)
* 6-speed gearbox
* full-time AWD
* brakes - 8-piston front/4-piston rear, optional front/rear 6-piston ceramics
* steel tube frame/carbon-fiber chassis"
