The FORCE runs strong with this STAR WARS Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

I can imagine the discussion that went on among the designers of this "Star Wars "inspired Lambo.....

General Tagge: What of the Rebellion? If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical reading of this Lamborghini, it is possible, however unlikely, they might find a weakness and exploit it.

Darth Vader: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.

Admiral Motti: Any attack made by the Rebels against this car would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This Lambo is now the ultimate power in the universe! I suggest we use it!

Darth Vader: Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to tear up the highways is insignificant next to the potential of the Force.

Admiral Motti: Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels' hidden fortress...
[Vader makes a pinching motion and Motti starts choking]

Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Governor Tarkin: Enough of this! Vader, release him!

Darth Vader: As you wish

The Force Is Strong With Star Wars-themed Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

The Jedi return to the automotive world, but this time the car that’s been gifted with the power of the Force is not the 2012 Volswagen Passat, but a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago. The supercar has been wrapped in vinyl to give it a Star Wars theme for this year’s Gold Rush Rally 3. Que Darth Vader theme music.

We love the new look of the LP640, as it now sports a theme from the Clone Wars era. A Jedi Order crest has been added to the passenger side door, while the Galactic Republic/Galactic Empire ones are on the driver’s side. The overall look remind us of a trop carrier ship, with its laser machine guns an white paint, detailed with black panel lines.

On the roof, an R2 D2 head has been added, probably to aid with repairs if the Murcielago gets dinged in battles with starfighters. There’s a few mock-flapt on top of the rear wheel and machine guns pop out of just about every surface of the car.

An inscription of the passenger-side door jokingly says “Co-pilot: Golden Puss” and is accompanied by a logo that combines Hello Kitty and Darth Vader facial elements. With this last element, you can be sure the Lambo would be the pride of the Star Wars villain's supercar collection.

We’ll remind you that the LP640 Murcielago uses a 6.5-liter V12 engine that develops 640 hp at 8,000 rpm and 486 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque at 6,000 rpm, pushing the supercar to the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark in just 3.4 seconds.
