The Gallardo was manufactured from 2003 to 2013 and is Lamborghinis 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'. In March 2010, Lamborghini announced the release of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera, a lightweight and more powerful version of the Gallardo LP 560–4 in the same vein as the previous Superleggera. With carbon fibre used extensively inside and out to reduce weight to just 1,340kg making it the lightest road-going Lamborghini in the range. The 5.2 litre V10 on the LP 570-4 received a power increase over the standard Gallardo to 570 PS (562hp). Performance has been improved to 0-62 in 3.2 seconds, and 204mph top speed.
The Superleggera is often compared with the Ferrari 430 Scud, values of which are in excess of £180,000 for similarly aged and mileage cars. See JayEmm's review of the Superleggera on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTFy179llF0&t=43s and why he thinks this car is a great buy. Research is unclear but it is thought that less than 360 were produced, with 172 delivered to the US leaving the resto of the world to share 178… very few will be RHD examples with only 13 found on howmanyleft.co.uk.
One of the finest lightened cars money can buy, this Gallardo Superleggera is finished in Bianco Monocerus with a Grigio Alcantara interior and fitted with 19" Superleggera 10-spoke Callisto alloy wheels with a matching set of Michelin PS4s tyres with complementary yellow brake calipers. From what we can ascertain this is a full specification car with carbon everywhere, rear wing and splitter, side skirts, interior door cards, transmission tunnel, and steering wheel, carbon backed sports bucket seats, carbon brake discs, front lift, satellite navigation, rear-view camera and glass engine bay cover with LED lighting. This is a UK five owner car and has covered a fraction over 20,000 miles. It has a fabulous service history - 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017 at Lamborghini main dealers and 2018, 2020 and 2022 at Lamborghini specialist Autofficina. The last service was on the 16th December 2022 at 19,820. The clutch read at time of cataloguing is at 30% worn, plugs, brake fluid, and the auxillary belts have been done and are ready for the season.
We can testify the car drives fabulously and is an absolute riot given it was filmed for a Historics promotional film which can be found on the Historics website. Supplied with the full handbook pack, two original keys, and an advisory-free MoT test certificate valid until Dec 2023.
