Lamborghini launches limited Gallardo India edition for Rs. 3.06 crore
After launching Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia specific cars, Lamborghini’s 50th year celebrations have now reached India, with the launch of an “India Limited Edition” of the Gallardo LP 550-2.
The Gallardo ‘India Serie Speciale’, as seen on a plate near the driver’s side quarter glass, is mechanically identical to the LP550-2. Powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine producing 550 hp and 540 Nm of torque, the Gallardo India edition will go from 0-100 kmph in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 320 kmph. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox sending power only to the rear wheels, which is what the 2 in its LP 550-2 coding refers to.
The Gallardo India edition sports Aranico Borealis, Bianco Monocerus and Verde Ithaca (translated as orange, white and green, representing the Indian flag) stripes running down the center of the bonnet, roof and engine lid. The car will be available in three colours, orange, white and green, unsurprisingly. The tricolore treatment for the Indian edition also extends to the black interiors that are accented with orange white and green stitching on the seat, dash and door trims. Lamborghini’s optional Cordelia wheels are standard on this car.
The India edition car represents a powerful and sophisticated tribute from the house of the raging bull, symbolic of our common ethos in aspiring for perfection. This reiterates our commitment to the India and enthusiasts of Lamborghini.
