Gallardo LP560-4, Reventón and P140 Prototype to be Showcased at Prestigious Pebble Beach Event
MONTEREY, Calif. – Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. will be showcased as the featured marque at the 58th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, August 17, 2008, at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. The acclaimed Italian super sports car manufacturer will showcase a few of the brand's most exclusive Lamborghini models at the prestigious event, including the newly-launched 2009 Gallardo LP560-4, the world-renowned Reventón and the historic Lamborghini P140 prototype.
"The opportunity to be the featured marque at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is a great tribute to the Lamborghini brand," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. "Since its inception, Lamborghini has been a creator of trends in the world of super sports cars. We take great pride in showcasing our vehicles among the world's most passionate enthusiasts."
The 2009 Gallardo LP560-4, heir to Lamborghini's most successful vehicle model of all time, arrives at all 34 North American dealerships in late-summer of 2008. The all-new 560 horsepower LP560-4 replaces the previous Gallardo model, which sold more than 7,000 units, and features a powerful new engine, permanent four-wheel drive transmission and new suspension while delivering clearly improved performance and driving dynamics.
With just 20 produced, the 1 million Euro Lamborghini Reventón is a symbol of extreme exclusivity, yet still offers extraordinary performance. The Reventón was entirely designed in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the original birthplace of the Lamborghini, and is the perfect synthesis between the exclusivity and appeal of a limited edition design masterpiece, and the dynamism and drivability of a standard sports car.
The Lamborghini P140, the proposed successor to the Jalpa, was designed with one goal in mind: superior styling. The designers took design cues of the Miura, Countach and Diablo to create a unique, new vehicle that was still purely a Lamborghini. Lamborghini produced an all-new 4 liter V10 engine specifically for the prototype, although the brand eventually decided not to produce the P140 to concentrate on later Diablo models.
Founded in 1963 and bought by Audi AG in 1998, Automobili Lamborghini is headquartered in Sant'Agata Bolognese, in Northeastern Italy and manufactures some of the world's most sought after super sports cars. With 34 dealerships in North America and 114 worldwide, Automobili Lamborghini has created a succession of dynamic and elegant super sports cars including the Miura, Islero, Urraco, Jalpa, Espada, Countach, Diablo, Murciélago LP640, Murciélago LP640 Roadster, Gallardo Coupe, Gallardo Spyder, Gallardo SE, Gallardo Superleggera, Reventón and the recently launched 2009 Gallardo LP560-4.

It has taken Lamborghini some years to get the successor to the Gallardo ready, and over that period of time a lot of prototypes have been photographed

We've seen this car as the Gallardo SE700 by Boxter before, but now it is called the Gallardo SR66-2 by Suhorovsky Design.
