Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini has achieved a new production record in 2010 with Gallardo number 10,000 rolling off the production line at Lamborghini’s factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It has become the most successful Lamborghini model of all time. The original Gallardo Coupé was launched in 2003 and the model range was extended with the 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 characterize 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 Geneva Auto Salon this year they presented the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera: a lightweight version of the LP 560-4.
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.
