Automobili Lamborghini has achieved a new production record in 2010, with Gallardo number 10,000 rolling off the production line at Lamborghini's factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese.
The V10 Lamborghini Gallardo, with its permanent four-wheel drive, has become the most successful Lamborghini model of all time. Starting with the original Gallardo Coupé launched in 2003, the model range was extended with Spyder and Superleggera models as well as special editions such as the Gallardo SE and Nera.
The current Gallardo LP 560-4 Coupé was launched in 2007 with increased power denoted by its '560' badge, and permanent four-wheel drive signified by the '4'. The same enhanced performance and technical modifications characterize the LP 560-4 Spyder, which was announced in 2008.
The limited edition two-wheel drive LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni was revealed in 2009 and at the most recent worldwide premiere at Geneva Auto Salon this year Lamborghini presented the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera: a lightweight version of the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4, with a top speed of 325 km/h and acceleration from 0-100 km/h of 3.4 seconds.
All clients are able to take advantage of the Ad Personam programme, which allows owners to customize further their Lamborghini car to create a unique super sports car.
"Production of car number 10,000 is a very important milestone for Lamborghini," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "The Lamborghini brand is extreme, uncompromising and Italian, and the Lamborghini Gallardo has played an exemplary role in defining and delivering our brand reputation into our worldwide markets. Today Lamborghini is represented in 45 countries by over 120 dealers, with the strength and presence of the Gallardo product playing a significant role in the growth and recognition of our brand."
The Lamborghini Gallardo has won numerous international awards for its dynamic performance, design and brand integrity, from media, international automotive groups and design councils. The Lamborghini Gallardo has been famously featured in music videos and films, and its client list features numerous celebrities, sports stars and VIPs.
A couple of Gallardo have been donated to the Italian state police, and a race version of the Gallardo LP 560-4 features in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo: the one make race series running in Europe, launched by Automobili Lamborghini in 2009.
The achieved record with the Gallardo number 10,000, in yellow "Midas" and destined for China, will be celebrated also during the 'Lamborghini Day' in Shanghai, 25th June. Lamborghini will showcase eight cars from its super sports car range.
