Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 GZ8 Edizione Limitata, confirming that just eight will be sold exclusively in China.

Lamborghini Gallardo GZ86

It's the third such special edition Lamborghini Gallardo for China after the Gallardo HK20 and Gallardo Gold Edition.

The 'GZ' stands for the city of Guangzhou while '8' is a lucky number in China and represents the total number of Gallardo GZ8s that will be produced.

Lamborghini developed the GZ8 in conjunction with the local Lamborghini dealer in Guangzhou, China’s third largest city with a population larger than 13 million.

Buyers of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 GZ8 will need to hand over a cool 3.88 million yuan ($587,000) for the privilege.

The special edition Gallardo GZ8 is powered by the 550hp (410kW) version of Lamborghini’s 5.2-litre V10, with drive sent to the rear wheels only.

The large rear wing, engine cover and side skirts are all constructed from carbonfibre, while the car also gets ‘Callisto’ (orange) winglets on the rear wing and matching alloy wheels and stripes down the side panels.
