………….From the House of the Rising Bull
The Gallardo series made a name for itself as the most successful super sports car in Automobili Lamborghini history. From the launch of the 2nd generation at the 2012 Paris Motorshow, the more aggressive and extreme Gallardo LP 560-4 and the 570-4 Edizione Tecnica sport permanent all-wheel drive and newly designed front and rear styling. Each of the six Gallardo models now has its own identity, and could be customized through Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program for a completely unique vehicle. The MSRP for the Gallardo LP 560-4 is $198,000.
The Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica has typical Lamborghini styling cues characterized by triangular and trapezoidal shapes, a unique geometry completely asymmetric giving a fiercely aggressive stance. Larger more efficient air intakes ahead of the front wheels provide cooling air to the brakes. The LP 570-4 rides on 19” Apollo-polished alloy wheels painted matt black with precision-machined spokes in polished silver.
The triangular/trapezoidal symmetries repeat for the highly distinctive rear end styling. Thermodynamic efficiency is optimized through the use of a wider air outlet. A new styling package includes high-gloss black paint work to the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and the transverse element of the rear trim makes the Gallardo LP 560-4 a ferocious looking supercar.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica presents a high performance look. The LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante benefit from a further exclusive trim and equipment upgrade. Signature features for the Edizione Tecnica include a fixed high rear wing and carbon ceramic brakes. Colors available are Nero Nemesis (matt black) body with Arancio Argos (orange) pillars and front air intakes, Bianco Canopus (matt white) body with Arancio Argos pillars and front air intakes, and Arancio Argos for the body with Nero Nemesis pillars and front air intakes.
The Gallardo series are equipped with an alloy mid-engine 5.0 litre or 5.2 litre V10 with a manual 6-speed H-Box or 6-speed e-gear automated manual transmission. The LP 560-4 produces 560 hp @ 8,000 rpm while the LP 570-4 series produces 570 hp @ 8,000 rpm. All Gallardo series use Lamborghini’s permanent all-wheel drive for excellent traction and stability at high speeds. The engine burns cleaner with fewer emissions and fuel economy was increased by 18% over the previous model. The Gallardo series went through an evolution of refinement during its production run.
The Gallardo range from the LP 560-4 to the Edizione Tecnica for the LP 570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante offers totally unique driving experiences. Each model has distinctive characteristics designed with sheer performance in mind. These are all of the attributes that made the Gallardo range the most popular and best-selling in Lamborghini’s history. Happy 50th Anniversary Automobili Lamborghini….may you keep the thrill of the supercar legend alive!
