When Automobili Lamborghini SpA unveiled the Nuova Gallardo LP560-4 at the Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris back in 2012 not everybody was equally impressed with the new 'triangular' styling adopted to the front and rear section of the V10 model, people were really expecting a sneak preview of the successor ... still this final edition Gallardo managed to sell rather well, and several got personalized to reflect the owner's taste.
When Velos Designwerks teamed up with FiveNine Design to build a very special 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 the outcome was really amazing ... the owner of this V10 Bull went for a set of Velos S1 Signature wheels, these forged units measure 8.5x19 and 11x19 inch respectively at the front and the rear ... rubber comes from a set of Toyo 888 tires, 235/35 19 and 305/30 19 front to rear.
Keep in mind the Toyo 888 are in fact street legal competition tires, they are ideal for track days and street races during events on closed sections ... these mean business, and the fact the owner of this car intends to have renowned Heffner Performance install a twin turbo on top of the 560 bhp V10 engine only confirms this ... with power around the 1000bhp marque I'm sure these Toyo 888 are the perfect choice.
Personally I really like the special matte grey wrap on this Gallardo LP560-4, called 'Combat Grey' it has been applied by 201 Wrap located in Jacksonville, FL ... that's why I called it the Gallardo Street Fighter in the heading ... this finish makes this late model, triangular front bumper and rear fascia look good.
Inside this grey Gallardo LP560-4 received black leather contrasted with amazing looking red stitching ... and more importantly the absolutely beautiful Q-Citura option, the 'quilted' look on the seats and door panels ... I for one love that stitching, and with red on black it only makes the overall package even more beautiful.
