The big news at Paris regarding Lamborghini was naturally the amazing new Estoque Concept that was unveiled, however it did overshadow the other Raging Bull that were on display during the Motor Show, so we'll take a second look at them in our Paris review.
Automobili Lamborghini SpA actually had two stands in Paris, one showing the amazing Estoque with both a Murciélago LP640 Roadster and a Gallardo LP560-4 on display and a second stand offering the Lamborghini Collection, the accessories line were they also showed a nice white Gallardo LP560-4, the latter featuring the nice cross-spoke wheels.
Other than the Estoque Concept, all Lamborghini cars on the official stands were finished in white over a black leather interior, a trademark color on the current Raging Bull models built at Sant'Agata.
When walking around the vast surface in Paris you could encounter a few other Lamborghini's as well, for starters another white Gallardo LP560-4 was shown by a rental company, this specific car didn't have the glass engine cover, which still remains an option naturally, but not many are ordered without it these days.
A bit further on I found a stunning orange metallic Murciélago Roadster, this was still a pre-LP640 model but it more than made up for this fact by an amazing combination of orange and black leather for the interior, a really nice choice of colors on this open top exotic.
A last Lamborghini I found in Paris was a gray Gallardo Superleggera edition, the top of the line V10 before the LP560-4 came out featuring a very nice alcantara interior, again this car was available for rent like the white LP560-4 mentioned earlier.
Do note that the white Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 shown on the official stand had the brand new glass engine cover mounted, and I must say that it looks really nice, finally we can admire the beautiful V12 engine mounted underneath the carbon fiber lattice mounted over the engine to ensure rigidity on the Roadster.
It was great to see the Lamborghini Estoque in real life in Paris, but I was also pleased by the fact that there was a nice selection of other Raging Bull at the show too, the Gallardo LP560-4 sure looks amazing in white, but I'm sure it will be really nice in some other colors as well.
