Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 13 - 13 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Murcielago is one of those cars where, if you need to ask, you probably can't afford it. Servicing and maintenance are best dealt with by one of Lamborghini's four UK dealers, which will be wallet-drainingly expensive. Consumables such as tyres, brakes and the clutch will also deplete funds very quickly, while fuel is a constant and vast expense when running one of these cars.

However, the Murcielago has enjoyed very gentle depreciation.

The Murcielago range returns just 13mpg on average, so it's no surprise that it gets a rock-bottom eco score. It emits 498g/km CO2 which although is about acceptable for a supercar, is exceptionally poor compared to the average family car. As a benchmark, a Mondeo will typically emit about 180 g/km CO2. However, buyers of these sorts of cars tend to do fewer miles per year in them than those that own average family cars.

The hard-charging V12 engine in the Murcielago is a tried and trusted unit and is unlikely to give trouble if properly serviced. Expect a major rebuild around the 50,000 mile mark though, to keep the engine ticking as it should. The rest of this Lamborghini is well put together and Audi's help means the interior is free of creaks and groans, unlike older models.
