The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
FOR this week's blog I will be featuring this gorgeous 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 coated in bright Bianco Monocerus paint.
This edition of the Lamborghini Gallardo is basically a facelifted version of the second generation Gallardo, and it features updated triangular and trapezoidal styled front and rear ends, larger air intakes, and 19-inch 'Apollo Polished' alloy wheels.
This model also features the optional Style package that adds high-gloss black paintwork to areas of the front spoiler and the horizontal element of the rear fascia.
However, what hasn't changed is the insane 5.2-litre 10-cylinder engine from the previous Gallardo model, which is able to produce up to 412kW (560 hp) at 8000rpm and 540Nm of torque (397 lb-ft of torque) at 6500rpm.
This particular Lamborghini has a dry weight of 1520 kilograms.
All of this allows the Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder to launch from 0-100 kilometres per hour in just 4.0 seconds flat, and it will keep accelerating until it reaches its top speed of 324 kilometres per hour (201 miles per hour), and you can do this speed with the top down.
The Lamborghini Gallardo first began production way back in 2003, and it has since become the most popular model made by the company.
The basic design hasn't changed too much since the beginning, but there have been many, many (probably too many) limited edition models along the way. Lamborghini finished producing the Gallardo on November 25, 2013 after having made 14,022 models. That is almost half of all the cars they've ever made.
Some other features that this particular model is equipped with includes a power convertible roof, an electronic raising rear spoiler, double-wishbone front and rear suspension, four-wheel ABS as well as traction and stability control, daytime running LEDs, electronic brake force distribution, xenon headlights, a rear view camera, a leather interior with diamond stitched seats and doors, heated and electric seats for both the driver and passenger, a lifting system for going over speed bumps and dual-zone climate controls.
You can buy your own 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder for about $360,000 AUD.
