Sneak Peek: Lamborghini Gallardo ‘The Final Edition’

By

With more than 13,000 units produced, the Gallardo is the most successful model in Lamborghini history.

If the suffix “The Final Edition” sounds foreboding, worry not: they are merely an indication that the Lamborghini Gallardo will soon be replaced by an all-new car with a new name. Meanwhile, for those who want to give in to their inner Bruce Wayne, this is your last chance to buy a brand-new example of the current model.

What is it: A special edition of the Gallardo LP 560-4, designed to lend more appeal to an already desirable model, before the aforementioned model switch.

Design: As Alfred Pennyworth pointed out, Lamborghinis are anything but subtle. The low-slung bodywork, clocking in at below 1200mm height, is accentuated by its simple, tightly raked lines. The front end features sharply-cut triangular and trapezoidal elements such as the headlamps and front air intakes. New 19-inch polished alloy wheels are painted in matt black and have machined spokes in polished silver. An available Style Package adds high-gloss black paintwork on the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and the transverse element of the rear trim.

Engine and transmission: As its name affirms, this Gallardo has 560 hp, fed through an all-wheel drive system. With 540 Nm of torque from the 5.2-liter V10, the sports car can accelerate from 0-100 kph in 4.0 seconds on to a top speed 325 kph. The mid-engine is mounted longitudinally, hence the Longitudinale Posteriore designation. This results in a 43 front/57 percent rear weight distribution for optimal handling.

Suspension: The Gallardo is built using an aluminum spaceframe, with aluminum panels hung on a lightweight frame. Likewise, the double wishbones up front are made from this metal for superior stiffness. The rear axle incorporates an additional track rod for better control. Rubber-metal bearings help the driving dynamics.

Built in: Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory. With more than 13,000 units produced, the Gallardo is the most successful model in the company’s history.
