Automobili Lamborghini SpA has unveiled yet another limited edition based on their V10 Gallardo series, this time they called it the Gallardo LP560-4 Gold Limited Edition ... and it will only be available on the China market ... didn't we hear that before ?
Yes we did, with the Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 Super Veloce China Edition, another very limited edition model, only 10 were ever built and at least one was crashed heavily shortly after the owner took delivery ... so now Lamborghini is pulling the same thing out of the bag, the Gallardo LP560-4 Gold Limited Edition will also be made only 10 times and demands a serious premium over the regular LP560-4 model.
The Lamborghini stand at the south China based Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Macau International Auto Show shows an Arancio Argos Aventador in the center spot ... with this brand new, locally available Gallardo edition next to it, finished in an impressive gold metallic shade that does remind me somewhat of the Oro Elios shade used back in 2000 on another limited edition model, the Diablo VT 6.0 SE or Special Edition.
In case of the Gallardo LP560-4 Gold Limited Edition we are looking at those impressive, polished wheels covering some highly contrasting, red finished brake calipers ... a shade that is also used inside the car where red is used for the stitching on the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, central console and door panels.
The engine cover is the optional glass version, that covers a regular LP560-4 V10 engine, no additional horse power or tuning on this car ... which sells for an equivalent of 800,000 USD in China, not bad I guess, and judging by all those other makes having special editions for the booming Chinese market I don't think Lamborghini will have any trouble selling ten of these.
