We’ve only recently received word of the Gallardo Bicolore, a limited edition model based on the successful LP560 model and now we get images of yet another special model of the V10 Raging Bull, this time the Singapore Limited Edition, to be built only 10 times, each with a serial number on a special plaque.
Why yet another limited edition you might ask ? Well this one is actually to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Lamborghini Singapore, and there is even more, this car will only be available in black or white and for each of them sold Lamborghini Singapore will donate S$20,000 to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF) … in total offering S$200,000 for those students that are less fortunate to be able to go to school anyway.
These ten cars have been specially commissioned by the Lamborghini factory to be sold on the Singapore market only, available in either black or white these Gallardo cars distinct themselves from the regular LP570-4 Superleggera by using red stripes on the side and different wheels, in fact the same wheels as on the Bicolore model. There is also a small plaque on the side of the car with a Merlion logo stating this to be the Singapore Limited Edition.
In the end it took three months to finalize this concept, Mr Melvin Goh, managing director of Lamborghini Singapore negotiated directly with the factory in Sant’Agata … in mid February 2011 a special gala dinner was held in the well-known Mandarin Oriental in Singapore during which the keys to the first two cars in this series were given to their new, fortunate owners.
Apparently these cars look like an evolution of the LP570-4 Superleggera, however their specifications show a Max power of 550 hp at 8000 rpm which could mean these are actually LP550-2 models with the front spoiler, side skirts and small rear wing of the Superleggera mounted.
However we received no information that these are rear wheel drive only, still they reach a top speed of 320 Km/h and reach 100 Km/h from standstill in a mere 3.9 seconds … figures that leave no doubt, these Gallardo Singapore Limited Edition are still true blooded Raging Bulls.
