We’re not sure whether this is an April Fool’s joke or not, but CarMagazine is reporting on the Lamborghini Ferruccio, a Lamborghini that never made it to the roads. Designed by Italian coachbuilder Magviso, the Ferruccio was a rebodied Murcielago LP640 that would’ve been faster than any Lamborghini car. And while it wasn’t an official Lambo project, the Italian automaker was ‘monitoring the scheme with interest.’
Power was supposed to come from a 6.5L V12 engine mated with a all-wheel-drive system. The engine produced 630-hp and 660 lb-ft of torque giving it the ability to go from 0-60 in 3 seconds with a top speed of over 230mph.
So why did the Ferruccio never see light of day? According to designer Pule Magau, Lamborghini didn’t see it justified to build the car since they only had three orders and no deposits. During planning, only 10 examples of the Ferruccio were planned with five hard-tops and five convertibles. Prices were expected to start somewhere around $1.5 million.
