Lot 264 - 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo
|Odometer reading||34,230 km|
|Estimate||£75,000 - £90,000|
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 Motor 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.
This striking lefthand drive example, presented in Arancio Borealis Orange with a matching orange and black interior, black soft-top, boasts a full service history and only 34,000km from new. As it is a 2008 model, it has an E-gear transmission update and also benefits from a £9,000 kevlar clutch which is a much improved upgrade and has completed less than 300 miles since fitting. Described as being in very good condition throughout, the car is supplied with a UK MoT test certificate and UK registration has been applied for and should be completed by the auction. Finished in a stunning colour scheme, this desirable Gallardo has the pedigree and styling to ensure spirited driving and strong interest for years to come.
