Out the door: ten thousand Gallardos
25th June, 2010
Automobili Lamborghini has achieved a new production record with
Gallardo number 10,000 rolling off the production line at Lamborghini’s factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The V10 Lamborghini Gallardo, with its permanent four-wheel drive, has become the most successful Lamborghini
model of all time. Starting with the original Gallardo Coupé launched in 2003, the model range was extended with
Spyder and Superleggera models as well as special editions such as the Gallardo SE and Nera.
The current Gallardo LP 560-4 Coupé was launched in 2007 with increased power denoted by its ‘560’ badge, and
permanent four-wheel drive signified by the ‘4’. The same enhanced performance and technical modifications
characterise the LP 560-4 Spyder, which was announced in 2008.
The limited edition two-wheel drive LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni was revealed in 2009 and at the most recent
worldwide premiere at Geneva Motor Show this year Lamborghini presented the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera: a
lightweight version of the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4, with a top speed of 325 km/h and acceleration from
0-100 km/h of 3.4 seconds.
“Production of car number 10,000 is a very important milestone for Lamborghini,” said Stephan Winkelmann,
President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Lamborghini brand is extreme, uncompromising and Italian, and
the Lamborghini Gallardo has played an exemplary role in defining and delivering our brand reputation into our
worldwide markets. Today, Lamborghini is represented in 45 countries by over 120 dealers, with the strength and
presence of the Gallardo product playing a significant role in the growth and recognition of our brand.”
A couple of Gallardo have been donated to the Italian state police, and a race version of the Gallardo LP 560-4
features in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo: the one-make race series running in Europe, launched by
Automobili Lamborghini in 2009.
The achieved record with the Gallardo number 10,000, in yellow “Midas” and destined for China, will be
celebrated also during the ‘Lamborghini Day’ in Shanghai, 25th June, before being delivered to its owner. In the
first event of its kind in China, Lamborghini will showcase eight cars from its super sports car range.
