Lamborghini

What does it take to build a car that can go from zero to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 211 mph?

National Geographic heads to the small farming community in Italy that is home to the main factory for the Lamborghini Murcielago SV to find out.

See how a workforce of 130 people makes the Murcielago’s lightweight carbon fiber frame and a 640-horsepower V-12 engine.

Much of the work is done by hand, and despite the massive workforce, the factory outputs a mere 2.7 Murcielagos a day.

Trace the car’s history, starting with its founding by Ferruccio Lamborghini, who, frustrated by a Ferrari’s clutch, created his own luxury car and a feud that continues to this day.
