Lamborghini launches a special edition Gallardo for India

Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A of Italy, the tractor-maker turned super car-maker, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with events spread around the year. There were promotional drive events, an uber-exclusive exotic supercar christened the Veneno was launched at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and special editions of existing Lamborghini models are being rolled out from Sant'Agata where the Italian brand's factory is located.

The Gallardo “India Serie Speciale”, one such special edition limited to just 6 units and priced at INR 3.06 Crores ex-showroom Maharashtra each, was launched earlier today. Though Lamborghini claims that this model was designed and developed exclusively for India, the India Serie Speciale is actually the regular Gallardo LP 550-2 adorned with a few India-specific cosmetic touches inside and out.

To start with, this special edition Gallardo comes with three exterior colour options depicting the three colours of the Indian flag. In Lambo’s lingo, they are Arancio Borealis (Pearl Orange), Bianco Monocerus (White) and Verde Ithaca (Pearl Green). Just 2 cars will come painted in each of these colours. Additionally, an Indian tricolor strip runs along the length of the car, starting from the hood and extending up to the engine cover. The quarter glass in the driver’s side gets a “India Serie Speciale’" plate too. The black interiors of this special edition Gallardo features contrasting stitching, again in the colours of the Indian flag.

Mechanically, nothing has changed from the regular Gallardo LP 550-2. With a monstrous 5.2-liter V10 engine generating 550 HP of power and 540 Nm of torque, the Gallardo can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h. If these figures doesn't get you excited enough, the Gallardo’s gorgeous design that still looks fresh and stunning a decade after launch, definitely will. Currently at the end of its production run, the Gallardo will soon be replaced by an all-new model that is still kept under wraps.

Well, if you are smitten by this special edition like us and have pockets deep enough to buy one unlike us, go ahead and book yours immediately in one of the three colours. Mark our words, admiration and exclusivity are guaranteed for the next few decades!

  1. I am not surprised that Lambo is trying to make a special version for India, because Lambo will unveil the successor to Gallardo. I am not at all surprised that compact supercars eg:(Gallardo, Audi R8, Porsche 911) are selling more that mainstream ones:(Aventador, Pagani Huayra, Koeinigsegg even) beacause of prices. And is the Huayra even sold in India?

    1. You are absolutely right. These super-cars (Gallardo, 911, R8, etc.) offer almost 90% of what the bigger super-cars do at almost half the prices.
