Lot 180 - 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo
|Odometer reading||49,400 miles|
|Estimate||£45,000 - £55,000|
|Result||Sold - £58,800|
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'. Over the years however, it is the manual gearbox cars that have become far more collectible amongst the purists.
Originally from H R Owen, this striking example presents with the all-important gated six-speed gearbox, black exterior and a sumptuous black leather interior and, as such, is just one of 500 made worldwide. All original books are supplied with the car which also comes with a ‘Tracker’ and service history showing a recent interim service at 49,097 miles, six main agent stamps, two specialist stamps and an upgrade by Lamborghini Manchester. The history file also includes various invoices, two sets of keys and a CD autochanger. Benefitting from an MoT test certificate valid for 10 months, this manual Gallardo is extremely competitively priced and encompasses the pedigree and styling to ensure intrinsic value for years to come.
