The recently announced Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Bicolore already hinted at a future for the RWD Gallardo after all 250 LP550-2 Valentino Balboni’s had been build. The LP550-2 Bicolore will be offered in the United States as alternative for the LP560-4 Bicolore that will go on sale in Europe, the Middle East and Asia shortly.
Now reports from Italy suggest that a standard Gallaro LP550-2 with rear wheel drive will be offered as an entry-level Gallardo soon. It will be priced under the LP560-4, which is currently the cheapest Lamborghini on the market.
Update: A 2011 LP550-2 surfaced on ebay for $227.000. This LP550-2 was build in September 2010 which confirms the story above. Thanks to Alexander for the tip!
Finally! Amen to that!
it’s been for sale in some parts of the world for quite some time already. don’t know how about the US.
Australia has had it for a while.. It does sound good that more of the market can have a taste of a proper RWD sports car…
Yeah Australia has had it for quite a few months now, with it being priced around $100,000 less than a base LP560-4. Yeah is an article about it from September; http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/executive-lifestyle/lamborghini-without-frills/story-e6frg9zx-1225913697492
