The Lamborghini Gallardo range has been updated with a new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 and ‘Edizione Tecnica’ variants of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera and Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, giving the fighting bull one last run ahead of the brand new model’s arrival expected in the near future.

The refreshed four-wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo range sees the LP 560-4 receive a new front end highlighted by strong triangular lines and trapezoidal forms synonymous with the model, as well as body-coloured and black diagonal supports and larger air intakes.

The angular theme is continued for the car’s new rear end with body-coloured diagonals breaking up the now wider rear engine air outlet – improving heat dissipation for the 412kW/540Nm 5.2-litre V10 powerplant – and sitting below the automatically controlled rear spoiler.

Performance figures of 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 325km/h are possible thanks to the six-speed paddle-shifted e-gear transmission and new matt black 19-inch alloy wheels with polished silver spokes shod with Pirelli PZero rubber (measuring 295mm on the rear).

A gloss-black finish for the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and transverse element of the rear trim, optional as part of a new Style package, give the Gallardo LP 560-4 an even more aggressive look.

Offered only on the top Lamborghini Gallardo models, the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, is the enhanced Edizione Tecnica specification.

Combining an even more individual look and a boosted equipment level, the Edizione Tecnica models feature a fixed rear wing, carbon-ceramic brakes and three new exclusive colour combinations that see the entire roof arch and front air intakes painted in a contrasting colour – matt black body with orange, matt white body with orange, and orange body with matt black.
