Lamborghini Gallardo

   The Lamborghini Gallardo is a sports car built by Lamborghini and its most-produced model to date, with over 10,000 built in its first seven years of production. The car is named after a famous breed of fighting bull and represented to many the smaller version of the Murcielago, a descendant of Lamborghini's Jalpa from the 1980s.

  Presented at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, the Gallardo LP 560-4 is a significant refresh of the Gallardo, powered by a new 5.2 liter V10 engine that produces 552 horsepower. The new engine, is more powerful than in the previous car, comes with two transmission choices: 6-speed manual or 6-speed E-gear, the later of which was revised to offer a Corsa mode which makes 40% quicker shifts than before and decreases traction control restrictions.

  The MSRP base price is $198,000 in the US and £147,330 in the UK. The first US car was sold in 16th Annual Race to Erase MS charity auction for $270,000 to former True Religion Jeans co-founder/co-creator Kymberly Gold and music producer Victor Newman.
