Automobili Lamborghini SpA has opened a new showroom in the Philippines about a month ago, during the celebrations in Bonifacio Global City, metropolitan Manila, Stephan Winkelmann cut the ribbon to the first official Lamborghini dealership for the Philippines and presented the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 at the same time.
But something else was also made available for the Philippines region: a limited edition version of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 called the Noctis, which is Latin for 'night' and as a special model it receives innovative three shade bodywork.
The main color on the LP560-4 Noctis is either Blu Fontis, a very dark metallic blue shade, or Grigio Lynx which happens to be a gray metallic. But that is only the start, the windshield pillars, roof frame get finished in silver all the way to the rear of the car, while the roof itself is covered in Nero Noctis, a deep black.
The Gallardo LP560-4 Noctis rolls on the well-known Cordelia wheels, which in this case are polished to a deep gloss and go over glossy black brake calipers, the engine cover is the optional glass window version, some of the other 'options' include the factory Anti-Theft System, a stunning Bicolore Sportivo Alcantara interior, the Branding Package with the Raging Bull crest on the headrests. The leather package completes the upholstery while a Navigation System avoids getting lost, and if you do get lost you can use the Bluetooth system to call for help ... hands free.
To keep that nice front bumper in perfect shape the Front Lifting System is installed and to keep you from hitting the back against something resulting in a steep repair bill they even installed the Reverse Camera option.
They call this one the Gallardo LP560-4 Noctis Limited edition, and while there is a nice plaque on the side with 'Noctis' script, there is no numbering system visible, so we have no idea how many will be made in the end ... however one of the gray finished ones made it to Australia already where it was for sale in July 2012.
