The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is planning to develop a final special edition of the Gallardo, before pulling the plug on the popular model.
After some rumors appeared not too long ago which were saying that the Lamborghini Gallardo will follow the same path as the Murcielago soon, meaning that it will leave the assembly line in order to make way for the new generation, the model is entering our news once again. According to the guys at Car and Driver, the Lamborghini Gallardo will get a new special edition before the company will stop its production. Rumors are saying that the model will get rear-wheel drive and it will be similar to the Super Trofeo Stradale, but nothing official is known for the moment.
As a quick reminder, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been in production ever since 2003 and the model is being assembled in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. The Gallardo is coming in two body styles, a 2-door coupe and a 2-door spyder, with a mid-engine and AWD/RWD layout. The model has a choice of two engines, a 5.0 liter V10 and a 5.2 liter V10, which can be mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automated manual transmission. The Gallardo is 4,300 mm long, 1,900 mm wide and 1,165 mm tall (coupe) / 1,184 mm tall (spyder) and its wheelbase is 2,560 mm long.
