Just a month before the world debut at Geneva Motor Show of its V12 replacement for the Lamborghini Murcielago, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting at the 2011 Qatar Motor Show a highly exclusive and appealing vehicle making its world premiere: the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore, a Special Edition supersports car which will be produced for the European and Asian-Pacific markets, while for the American market it will be only available in the version LP 550-2.
As its name implies, this special series features an exclusive two-tone finish with matching interior, and offers a full range of standard equipment. A refined contrast between the black roof and the colour of the rest of the body (available in a choice of five shades) further emphasizes the sharp, dynamic lines of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, while simultaneously enhancing its sportiness and adding a touch of elegance to an extremely prestigious model in the field of automotive design.
The most successful super sports car in Lamborghini's history captures the imagination with the brutal power of its 560 hp V10 engine, the absolute grip of its permanent all-wheel drive and the razor-sharp precision of its chassis. Every kilometre in the Lamborghini Gallardo is an intense experience of explosive dynamics and absolute control.
Its breathtaking performance is indicated by the 3.7 seconds it takes to reach 100 km/h and its top speed of 325 km/h. Unique design DNA The success of Lamborghini's unequalled design DNA lies in the beauty of highly-concentrated power and precise function. The Lamborghini Gallardo is the sheer essence of form with a purist approach, so the body shell is crisply sculpted and completely free from decoration. A timeless piece of design and an uncompromising driving machine - the Lamborghini Gallardo is both.
Even more extreme, thanks to a personalized appearance With its new Bicolore model, Lamborghini is now setting a further design highlight in the ten-cylinder model series. The coloured exterior finish matched with the black on the upper area of the body gives the Lamborghini Gallardo a new, more aggressive personality that looks even wider, even more extreme and innately adhered to the road. 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 colours: Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Bianco Monocerus and Blu Caelum.
The V10 like a work of art in a glass display The complete range of standard equipment includes the fast e-gear automated transmission controlled by paddles on the steering column. A lifting system enables the front axle to be raised for safer travel onto ramps and over humps in the road, and the engine hood in tempered glass provides a stunning view of the heart of the vehicle: a 5.2 litre, 90° V-10 engine with stratified direct injection. 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.Published 26 January 2011
