Yesterday, and as the 14,022th Lamborghini Gallardo rolled off the assembly line in the historic factory buildings of Sant’Agata Bolognese, the production of one of the world’s most iconic super sport cars came to an end. The Gallardo was the best-selling Lamborghini, and also one of the best-selling supercars, ever made.
The last ever Gallardo is a LP 570-4 Spyder Performante in Rosso Mars (red) and it is destined for a private collector. This version shows the evolution of the Gallardo in its ten years of presence in the market rather beautifully. It started out in 2003 with a unique, extreme design, created by the Centro Stile Lamborghini. Over the years wings sprout out of it, it got chunkier fins and spoilers, and the power grew as well.
That glorious profile, however, always remained unchanged, and will undoubtedly be carried over to the replacement model. Speaking of which, the Cabrera is in its final stages of testing and development. It is heavily influenced in design by the Aventador, but whether or not it’ll get Gallardo’s V10 is still a mystery.
The Lamborghini Gallardo was sold in more than 45 countries across the globe. A whole decade of production also brought with it a wide array of special editions, often exclusive to specific markets, like the Singapore, Malaysia, China and India Editions. They even made a special Police Gallardo for the Italian Carabinieri. The car will continue to live on in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo and other racing series around the world.
