Since the Geneva show is going to be dominated by the new LP700, Lamborghini decided to release the Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore at the ongoing Qatar Motor Show. The Bicolore is yet another Special Edition of the Gallardo produced for the European and Asian-Pacific markets. The Americans will get it as the LP 550-2.
Now you might be thinking the only thing this car offers is a two-tone paint job, but you’d be wrong! It also has matching interior, and offers a full range of standard equipment. In terms of power and performance though, you’d be right as it has the same configuration as the normal LP560.
The roof of the Bicolore is only available in black, but you can order five different colors for the body. According to Lamborghini, it’s been designed to enhancing Gallardo’s sportiness and adding a touch of elegance. So if you want to buy a Gallardo, this is the obvious choice between all the other editions.
As mentioned the Bicolore gets the same 560 hp V10 engine as in the regular Gallardo with the same 4WD system and e-gear automated transmission. Now they could have tweak it a bit, but we have no objection becasue this setup is pretty awesome and does zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 325 km/h, enough if you ask us!
“With the Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore, Lamborghini demonstrates once again the extreme, uncompromising and unmistakably Italian nature of our brand. The super sports cars from Lamborghini combine volcanic energy with design that is as unique as it is stylish,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
From the window-line upwards (including pillars, roof, engine hood and rear spoiler), the vehicle is decorated in Noctis Black – a pastel black that contrasts perfectly with the lower area of the body, available in a choice of five colors: Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Bianco Monocerus and Blu Caelum.
Gallardo Bicolore is fitted with Skorpius aluminum-alloy rims with 15 thin spokes that are forged to minimize unsprung weight and are finished in titanium gray enamel. And, the air intakes and front spoiler have a high-gloss black finish, as does the upper section of the rear diffuser.
For the interior, the instrument panel, seats, door panels and other elements in the passenger compartment are upholstered in the finest “Nero Persus” leather, with a refined contrast provided by precise stitching that is colored to match the exterior paintwork: yellow, orange, blue and gray (also used on the Bianco Monocerus version).
The bezel of the e-gear transmission on the center console is in Nero Noctis, just like the upper area of the vehicle. Obviously, the interior is finished in the Lamborghini tradition using only the materials of the very highest quality, which are crafted with undisputed professionalism and fine Italian workmanship.
From a satellite navigation system to a rear-view camera, from a brake system with carbon-ceramic discs to heated power seats, a long list of optional equipment and accessories allows the vehicle to be adapted to the personal requirements of any client.
Lamborghini has not confirmed the pricing for the Bicolore yet, but you may rest assure it will be considerably more than normal model. You should decide if it’s worth it or not.
