The world's top 10 supercars!

6. The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is a supercar made by Italy's Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. It is perhaps the world's most recognised and desired car.

This extraordinary supercar can set your bank balance back by about $319,000 (Rs 1.43 crore). It can go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds flat.

The Murcielago LP640 features an engine that is mounted 'backwards,' with the transmission at the very back of the car. The 'LP' in its name stands for Longitudinale Posteriore which refers to the longitudally-mounted, 6.5 L V12 engine, capable of producing up to 640 bhp at 8000 rpm.

This super car is made up of steel and carbon fibre. It also has an all-wheel drive system and scissor-opening doors.

The car comes with ceramic brakes for swifter braking and a glass engine cover (transparent) which shows off the LP640's 6.5 L V12 engine. The electronic gadgets that go with the car only make it all the more alluring.
