When he isn’t protecting Gotham City from various villains in the Batmobile as his alter ego, Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne’s vehicle of choice is one of Lamborghini’s sexiest super sports car ever built, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. Bruce Wayne’s newest Lamborghini can be first seen prowling the streets in the movie’s new, extended theatrical trailer shown in theatres May 2, 2008, prior to “Iron Man.”
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe is not Bruce Wayne’s first Lamborghini. The association with the marquee began in 2005 when Propaganda Global Entertainment Marketing, Lamborghini’s entertainment marketing firm for worldwide activities, brokered the deal for the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster to make its on-screen debut in “Batman Begins.” In the film, Bruce Wayne can be seen driving the Lamborghini supercar to an exclusive party with two beautiful models in the passenger seat.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Coupe appearing in “The Dark Knight” is powered by a 640 horsepower 12-cylinder engine and is capable of more than 211 mph.
“The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is the natural choice for Bruce Wayne’s other car,” stated Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “Lamborghini is proud to be associated with one of the greatest movie franchises in history, especially co-starring with the night-bound Batmobile.”
