Manufactured from 2003 to 2013 the Lamborghini Gallardo is important in the history of the Sant Agata firm as it represents the most successful model in their history. Both eminently usable and, importantly, reliable, the V10 sportscar had total Audi backup which made it hugely desirable and, subsequently, the most successful sportscar built from this particular Carrozzeria. Its secret lies in its light but stiff space frame chassis mounted to a five litre, V10 engine powering all four wheels on demand. Offered with 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.
This 2004, righthand drive 'E-gear' car is offered in near faultless Nero Serapis with Nero black leather trim, it is privately owned and has been fastidiously maintained. Sitting on Pirelli tyres and coupled to the RSC carbon-fibre front and rear bumper packs, this example was purchased by our vendor after a two year search for the best Gallardo he could buy. Originally supplied by Lamborghini London on 16th January 2004, this example was serviced with supplying main dealer until Lamborghini Lancaster Sevenoaks in 2012. This has since been annually serviced, irrespective of mileage, by well known Lamborghini specialists, the most recent in June last year. The vendor has noted that, importantly, the clutch, flywheel, brake discs and pads were all changed at 23,591 miles with SB engineering, Lamborghini specialists in Hertfordshire.
It is supplied with a full stamped service history, original book pack, a V5C registration document, previous MoT test certificates and many receipts, two keys and a fitted tracker. The condition of the car speaks for itself, it has wanted for nothing. A true supercar and with a price tag of over £135,000, when new, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a properly maintained example that is surely a future classic. It would be difficult to find a Gallardo in better condition.
*Interested parties should note the number plate shown G414RDO 'Gallardo' is to be retained and a new, age-related registration issued instead, however it can be purchased through separate negotiation.
