    While the new Gallardo LP560-4 is breaking cover in front of the world's media today in Geneva, Lamborghini has put the finishing touches a Model Year (MY) 2009 upgrade to the Murciélago LP640 Coupé and Roadster. The LP640 MY 2009 version is set to arrive in the showrooms at the very end of August, refining further the model's sporty and luxury credentials. Dealer ordering is now open.

    The biggest change to the Murciélago LP640 MY will come with the Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCM) which will be a standard feature. In providing this as standard equipment Lamborghini is following a trail recently blazed by Ferrari which now offers the technology across the range as standard fit.

    "This technology guarantees maximum efficiency and effective in every condition, constant pedal response and avoids dangerous effects of fading during an intensive usage," say Lamborghini. "For this reason the Carbon Ceramic Brakes System can be considered as the best solution for both everyday and track." The Murciélago LP640 with CCM brakes has 6-piston front and rear callipers and 380 mm x 38 mm brake discs.

    A second area tackled to improve performance is the addition of a new 'Corsa' mode, available in combination with e.gear; it replaces the current 'Sport' mode. The new 'Corsa' mode when activated guarantees, faster gear shifting timing, faster engine response, and says Lamborghini 'an uncompromising and aggressive driving and performance feeling.'

    Inside the cockpit a new screen in the centre of the instrument cluster will announce the engine power 'in use' shown as a percentage of CV; while the window lifter switches will get a new design. A new Kenwood entertainment system will incorporate a 7-inch Touch Screen Monitor( TFT) and feature DVD (DVD/DIVX/mpeg/jpeg/mp3/wma/aac), CD-R/RW playback, CD text; built-in Dolby Digital and dts 5.1 decoders and a new navigation system available as an option (built-in advanced 3d-maps navigation system and on internal flash memory 40GB hard disc). It will also have I-POD preparation and USB interface, available at the same time, and with both connectors placed in the central glove box, and finally Bluetooth.

    The underside of the bonnet will be optionally finished in visible carbon fibre while the LP640 Roadster will be available with the optional transparent engine cover (with a matt black finished rear section), an item already on the Coupe options list.

    At the rear a small camera will be mounted in the centre of the panel just underneath the badge, its picture playing on the dashboard-mounted 7-inch TFT monitor. Three new matt colours join the 'Ad Personam' options range: Nero Nemesis (Matt Black), Bianco Canopus (Matt Pearl White) and Marrone Apus (Matt Brown).

    I know what you mean on that one.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
