Paris today Lamborghini will launch a mild facelift of
its Gallardo which features cosmetic improvements to the
front and rear bumpers, which include new larger air
intakes at the front, and new alloy wheels as well as
trim and finish options.
The Gallardo is the
most successful sports car in Lamborghini's entire
history, but, now almost a decade old and with a
replacement looming, this makeover aims to give the
design further life through two new versions: the 'new'
Gallardo LP 560-4 and a trim level for the LP 570-4
models, dubbed the 'Edizione Tecnica'. The new
Gallardo LP 560-4 - still equipped with permanent four
wheel drive - has a new front end and a new rear, while
top models in the Gallardo line-up, the LP 570-4
Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, will
be offered the the further enhanced Edizione Tecnica
finishing. The six models of the Gallardo family aim to
be differentiated and can be also customised to suit
every type of driver.
The new Gallardo models and 'Edizione Tecnica' trim
levels will be available at Lamborghini dealerships from

Nearly 13,000 units of the Gallardo have already left
the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory; now the design life is
being eked out further accentuated in the form of the
new Gallardo LP 560-4. The new front end is
characterised by triangular and trapezoidal forms – two
shapes that are typical of the Lamborghini's design
language. Divided by diagonal elements in body colour
and in black, the overall look of the front end is
broader and more forceful, giving it an even stronger
bond with the road.
To complete the new look larger air intakes have been
created ahead of the front wheels and the new 19-inch
“Apollo polished” alloy wheels, painted in matt black
and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished
Also new is the rear end design on the Gallardo LP 560-4
and here the triangle and trapezoid are carried over.
The air outlet for the power unit now has now a wider
surface area, which improves its thermodynamic
efficiency. A new 'Style Package' is available as an
option and offers high-gloss black paintwork on the
underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles
and the transverse element of the rear trim.

The LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder
Performante are the Gallardo's range toppers, with the
addition of the 'Edizione Tecnica' trim level they now
benefit from a further improved equipment level and a
more individual look to keep the models relevant in
consumers minds. Features of the Edizione Tecnica
package include the fixed high rear wing, as well as
brakes in carbon-ceramic technology. They combine low
weight with outstanding fade resistance and durability.
The Edizione Tecnica level comes with three new
exclusive optional colour combinations, whereby the
entire roof arch and front air intakes are painted in a
contrasting colour. The available shades are: Nero
Nemesis (matt black) body with Arancio Argos (orange)
pillars and front air intakes, Bianco Canopus (matt
white) body with Arancio Argos pillars and front air
intakes, and Arancio Argos body with Nero Nemesis
pillars and front air intakes.
In addition to this, all the new Gallardo models can be
further customised through the “Ad Personam” program.
The new LP 560-4 and the Edizione Tecnica for the LP
570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante, underline –
even in terms of design – the differences in mechanical
and driving experience among the four-wheel drive
versions of the Gallardo range. In fact, beside the
Gallardo four-wheel drive, the two-wheel drive Gallardo
LP 550-2 in Coupé and Spyder format are still available.
With its purist rear-wheel drive, it appeals to drivers
that prefer a highly active and engaged driving style.
