The Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica were launched at a Track Day held at the Buddh International Circuit.
Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. And therefore, has many special celebratory events and activities lined up through out the year. One of those special things is a Track Day that is currently taking place at the Buddh International Circuit for speed aficionados who can test drive the highly acclaimed Gallardo models on the track for the next two days.
At the first day of the Track Day, Lamborghini India also expanded its Gallardo range in India by introducing two new models - the Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Technica, which have been priced at Rs 2.61 crore and Rs 2.92 crores (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
The new front end of the Gallardo LP 560-4 is characterized by triangular and trapezoidal forms – two shapes that are highly typical of the Lamborghini design language. Divided by diagonal elements in body color and in black, the overall look of the front end is broader and more forceful.
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 have been painted in matt black and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished silver.
The rear of the Gallardo LP 56-4 too, incorporates the triangle and the trapezoid design elements. The air outlet for the power unit now has now a wider surface area, which improves its thermodynamic efficiency.
With a more determined lightweight design, a focus on high performance and a purist look, the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante mark the very pinnacle of the Gallardo family. As Edizione Tecnica, they benefit from a further improved equipment level and an even more individual look. Features of the Edizione Tecnica include the fixed high rear wing, as well as brakes in carbon-ceramic technology.
The Edizione Tecnica underscore sits very special look with three new exclusive optional color combinations, whereby the entire roof arch and front air intakes are painted in a contrast color.
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 customized to a virtually limitless degree with the exclusive and well known: “Ad Personam” Lamborghini program.
In India, Lamborghini kick-started its 50th anniversary celebrations in January with the introduction of the all-new 2013 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster LP700-4 that has been priced at Rs 4.77 crores (ex-showroom, New Delhi.) In the months to come, we can expect a special one-off edition Lamborghini model, which will retail exclusively in India.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Pavan Shetty, head of operations, Lamborghini India said, “It is important to create awareness of the thrills of owning super cars. The Track Day event is an outreach platform that has been designed to provide auto enthusiasts in India an uncompromising driving experience thus helping them to connect with the brand. Such an initiative gives the brand’s aficionados a firsthand experience of Lamborghini’s supercars that embody pure power in the form of precision, performance, design, superior technology & elegance – qualities that have shaped this legendary brand.
