$47,000 Oil Changes – Lamborghini Murcielago


A rich Arab paid $47,000 to have the oil changed on his Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

To make sure the maintenance was performed right, he had his luxury oil change done in London. He sent his Lamborghini on a 6,500-mile round trip from Qatar to Britain just for the oil change !

The supercar which is the same model as the one driven by Batman in The Dark Knight and costs about $380,000.

The Sun reported that his black-and-gold supercar costs £3,552 ($7,000) to service at an approved dealer – on top of the £20,000 ($40,000) to freight from Qatar to Britain.

Evans, of pressure group Plane Stupid, said: “This horrifies me. It is another example of how rich people exploit and pollute the planet because of their money.”

But David Price, of Lamborghini Club UK, said: “If an owner wants to service his car in that way, it is his choice. I’m not surprised. Thankfully the age of excess in some areas continues.”

The Versace and Lamborghini Roadster LP640

Two Italian companies known for their inspirational design have collaborated to create the Versace and Lamborghini Roadster LP640 which is going into production for fall.

The limited edition luxury car, designed by Donatella Versace, will be produced to order and displays the signature Versace Greek Key motif on the front bumper and the lower part of the doors. The cradle seats are clad in black and white leather, while opulent full grain soft nappa leather – hand-embroidered with the Versace Greek fret motif – upholsters the instrument panel, the doors and the central console.

To create the new super roadster, the Maison Versace’s designers joined forces with designers from the Lamborghini Design Centre (Centro Stile)and specialists working on the “ad personam” project. This Lamborghini program allows individual clients to create personalised sports cars, choosing the equipment specification, the colour of the exterior body and of the interior fittings.

Versace has also designed an accompanying line of black calfskin accessories including a trolley bag, suit carrier, sports bag, as well as a briefcase, suitcase, gloves, driving shoes, belt, wallet, key ring, beauty case, hat andeven a pair of jean,s all bearing an engraved metal Lamborghini Versace tag.

This prestigious accessory collection will be exclusively available at Versace Boutiques and selected Lamborghini showrooms beginning in November 2008.

Gianni Versace’s CEO Giancarlo Di Risio emphasised: “This new supercar and the exclusive Collection LP640 represent a natural evolution of excellence for both Versace and Lamborghini through the creation of these unique, one-of-a-kind projects.”

Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., said: “Our collaboration with Versace turned out to be an excellent experience and is an example of how we are pursuing our strategy of developing luxury products outside of luxury sports cars. We are proud to be in this prestigious, Made in Italy partnership with Versace, which adds to our other recent successes.”

The price of the special-order Murciélago LP 640 Roadster Versace has yet to be named, but it is expected to be above the base price of $358,000. (Source : Press release)

Beyond its appearance lies a host of cutting edge features that include 3G access, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a customizable graphic user interface as well as a Windows Mobile operating system; making it, at least on paper, a worthy alternative to Apple’s iPhone.

Although its release date is yet to be announced, the phone is expected to retail for approximately US$1,000.
