Bruce Wayne Drives Batmobile by night, Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 by Day.
In the article entitiled: Lamborghini Makes Another Iconic Appearance in the Latest Batman Movie "The Dark Knight" - dated Jul 18, 2008 - there is a failure to note that "murcielago" means bat in Spanish!!!!!
So, there is a very natural association of the Batman character with the car. Nevertheless, the story goes that Murcielago was the name of a notorious Spanish fighting bull. The bull was named after the bat because he is/was a very sinister, black torreador killer. Of course the Lamborghini crest features a bull, some say in defiance of Ferrari's somewhat effeminate prancing horse.
