“Yeniceri Edition” World Record Lamborghini Murcielago from Unicate

Unicate are known for taking their exclusive automobile tuning to extremes and their latest creation is certainly no exception to that rule. It is a 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and Unicate have named it the “Yeniceri Edition”.

The Yeniceri is named after an elite fighting troop of soldiers from the Ottoman Empire – the best of the best. Their name alone would strike fear into the hearts of anyone that heard it and the thunderous sounds that they made as they approached would send people into panic.

The exhaust system of the “Yeniceri Edition” has the same effect as it gives out an amazing 120db whilst standing still. The exhaust system has been newly developed using the original tailpipes and increases the performance in the region of 20PS.

The ride itself has been lowered by about 1 inch (20mm) which is amazing considering the size of the wheels that it has. The Unicate Wheels “ConcavTen” have a Chrome outer lip whilst the center and Inner lip have a Matt Black finish to match the body work. The wheels on a ride like this are usually 8,5×20 with 2 inch outer lip and 235 tires on the front and 13×20 with a 6 inch outer lip and 335 tires on the rear. Unicate had other plans however and have managed to fit 10,5×20 with a full 4 inch outer lip and 285/25 ZR 20 tires titeson the front and a massive 13,5×21 with a 6 inch outer lip and 375/25 ZR 21 on the rear which surely makes this Lamborghini a world record car.

Cem Altun, CEO and founder of Unicate and the MEC Design Group, said “We wanted to take the wheels to the extremes and wanted to give it a wider wheel on the rear but there aren’t any tires wide enough. It’s great! It drives much better now than when it had the smaller original wheels on, it’s much more sportier now and you have the real feeling of driving a safer sports cars.”

Unicate have incorporated LED Daylight driving lights into the front grill under the bumper as well as adding 5 LED lights underneath each of the side skirts. The engine compartment hasn’t missed out either and now features LED lighting which shows off the beautiful Lamborghini engine.

The interior gets an overhaul as well as Unicate have designed a completely new carbon fibre and leather sports steering wheel. Nothing is spared as the carbon fibre finish also features throughout the interior with the speedometer housing, gear paddles, heating-/ radio housing and the middle console also having the high class finish.

Unicate have finished it off with a music system that has 2 way-system-boxes, amplifier and bass case. Whichever way you look at it, the sound that it produces whether from the stereo or from the newly developed exhaust, it will be enough to send other tuning companies running for cover before they get chance to see just how unique the “Yeniceri Edition” Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 looks. Unicate take some of the finest automobiles available in the world, restyle and upgrade them to make them simply – Unique.
