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.
Presented in stunning Blu Caelum Metallic with complementary blue leather trim this Lamborghini has had just three former keepers. The original book pack includes the service booklet which reveals 11 stamps originally from Birmingham Lamborghini then from specialists including Grimaldi Engineering and Kent High Performance. More recently in 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021 servicing was carried out by Autofficina; the last one in May just 1000 miles ago being a major service. At the same time it was treated to new discs and pads all round and roof lubrication amounting to a spend of £5,900; invoices for this work can be found in the history file. The file also contains the navigation DVD and old MoT’s together with tracker information. The car itself is in very good order throughout, privately owned and cared for with a fabulous sounding engine and we are told it is a joy to drive with the roof down. One of the best on the market and viewing is highly recommended.
