Lot 279 - 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder
|Odometer reading||5,025 km|
|Result||Sold - £90,720|
The Gallardo was manufactured from 2003 to 2013 and is their best-selling model with 14,022 being built throughout its lifetime. The first generation Gallardo came with a 4961cc, V10 engine and offered two choices of transmission, a conventional six-speed manual transmission and an advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled, semi-automatic, which Lamborghini abbreviates to 'E-Gear'. This allows the driver to make gear changes much faster than they could with a manual gearbox. The driver shifts up and down via paddles behind the steering wheel but can also change to an automatic model. The spyder model of the Gallardo was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006, the soft-top being fully retractable. The full-time all-wheel drive Gallardo LP560-4 coupé and spyder is powered by a 552hp direct-injected 5.2-litre, V10 controlled by a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional sequential six-speed 'E-gear' transmission. The LP550-2 Valentino Balboni features unique grey wheels, racing stripe, white leather-trimmed console, and leather-trimmed power seats with a white stripe. A navigation system, rear view parking camera, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and iPod integration are standard with the LP550-2 Valentino Balboni and available with the LP560-4. Optional light-weight carbon ceramic brakes offer superior durability and reduce brake fade, where the brakes become less effective due to overheating in extremely demanding conditions such as racing. An available clear glass engine cover allows the owner to display the engine. Other options include Alcantara interior trim and a variety of wheel designs and colours.
This Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder was supplied new, registered in Switzerland and has only covered 5,240 kilometres (3,275 miles) since the owner took delivery in June 2010. It comes 'fully loaded' with £30,000 of optional extras including Unicolour Sportive, perforated leather steering wheel, E-Gear gearbox, lifting gear, electric and heated seats, Bluetooth, anti-theft system, rear view camera, navigation system, leather interior package, style package, cordite shine black colour wheels, travel package, paint protection, branding package and white side indicators. Finished in Bianco Monocarus with Nero Perseus leather interior, this LP560-4 is supplied with the Swiss registration document; if the car is to be imported to the UK it is subject to VAT and a NOVA certificate will be issued. Some components would require replacing to comply with the UK MoT test regulations.
