Lamborghini Celebrates the Production of it’s 12,000th Gallardo
Posted on , by Nick Preston
Since first making an appearance in 2003, the Gallardo is now the most successful Lamborghini in history and it’s pretty obvious why. The Gallardo was originally designed to compete against the Ferrari 360 Modena, Ferrari then released it’s F430 and the competition was on. The Ferrari is considered the better driver’s car with superior handling, but reviewers such as Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear always have a special feeling towards to the Gallardo.
Since 2003 there has been many variants of the Gallardo, most notably the LP560-4 facelift which was introduced in 2008 and since then dozens of special editions have been created. Nevertheless, Lamborghini has a good reason to celebrate as building 12,000 examples of any high-end supercar is a huge achievement.
The Cabrera – rumoured successor to the Gallardo – is still a few years away from production but it’s likely a concept may be previewed sometime this year. It’ll reportedly feature a similar V-10 engine producing over 600bhp and include the same ISR transmission which is fitted to the Lamborghini’s flagship model, the Aventador.
