Lamborghini Murcielago LP2000-2 SV Twin Turbo has 2,000 rwhp [video]

The most powerful Murcielago ever.

 

A few months ago Underground Racing revealed the first twin-turbo Lamborghini Aventador and most of us though that tuners have already forgotten its predecessor, the Murcielago. However, it seems that David Wiggins was not ready to move on as he tuned his LP670-4 SV and turned it into probably the most powerful Murcielago ever.

The list of modifications is quite extensive, including a custom throttle body, a custom 12-inch exhaust system, custom billet aluminum plenum, 5-inch cold air intakes, as well as a custom Garrett GTX-4294 twin-turbo conversion, just to name a few. Covert Tuning Dynamics was in charge of making the necessary changes and for this project they invested more than 3,000 hours of build time, along with no less than four years of R&D.

As you would expect given the car’s name, this heavily modified Murcielago has 2,000 rwhp. It also has received a strut brace, six point roll-cage, custom sound system, custom battery, intercooler, NASA heat shielding while the cylinders are sleeved.

The exterior wears a satin and matt finish, matt carbon side mirrors, carbon fuel door and matching brakes. It rides on a custom set of ADV.1 wheels and weighs 550 lbs (249 kg) less than the stock model.

The reason why the owner did not start the car has to do with the EPA guidelines which didn’t allow them to use lead in the ECU system, but pretty soon we’ll get a video with the car in action.

OMG, it is obvious the owner has bad taste. Not only did he have a perfectly good original car ruined...the biatches in the picture sure does not do the car any justice either (sooo hot...NOT!!!!)

I guess there are worse ways to waste money. I mean I don't know how much the original car cost in the local market, it's not cheap that's for sure. Add another say $250k USD to pay the tuners to ruin the car. I'm betting it will last all of three hours before exploding and falling to pieces. I think I would rather buy a tiger.

2000hps to the Rear Wheels only...Wow. Can anyone control such a beast? If they can, this would definitely beat the mighty Veyron.

im sorry, but this is such bull. i dont want to be a party pooper, but i dont even know where to start. maybe from the fact that, as poseidon said, it is sad to tune such a car. my saying is always "never force feed a high revving engine". but apart from that. Lead in the ECU? don tell that u put so much money and work in the car and ur not using AT LEAST unleaded, or as Koenigsegg does, E85. one word CHEAP. and then the part with the CUSTOM sound system..... jesus christ. oh yeah, and the with "nobody is designing custom throttle bodies for lambos". that realy is some big bull, again. there are a lot of stories, posted here on WCF, about lambos with custom throttle bodies. and dude, u missed out on the most important thing, when giving a car so much power. WHAT did u do to the TRANSMISSION? and why lose the 4wd when dealing with so much pwr? (yeah save a few pounds..). im sure the car is fast and all, but i BET it wont work in the real world. this realy is an overkill and useless "tune"

Thats way too much power for a rear wheel drive car. 1000hp sure, but not 2000 hp. Thats almost undriveable on the street, you'll be spinning your tires on every gear and heaven forbid you get to a corner. Probably has worst gas mileage than the Bugatti.

3000 hrs / 4 yrs of r&d, and could not start it. Talk is cheap. Start the engine, run it then post. Otherwise, Veryon is still the KING of Supercars.

i wonder what would happen if a serious tuner decides to add more horsepower to the Veyron.

Well the other problem would be that, very well done indeed for sqeezing that much out of the engine. Seriously, well done on that, BUT, I guess nobody could ever actually use that output anyways. Even if it has 4WD and slicks, I still could not imagine it putting down all those muscles to the road. I guess it is meaningless for any powerful cars if their development in traction does not keep up with the development in engine output.
