We've all been eagerly waiting for the news from Automobili Lamborghini SpA about what would be shown at the 2012 Paris Motor Show ... and the rumors went from the production version of the Sesto Elemento over the Gallardo successor right up to the Aventador Roadster ... but none of these proved correct ... Lamborghini brings us probably the final evolution of the current Gallardo: the New Gallardo LP560-4.
This 2013 model will be available from November 2012 on at all authorized dealerships and offers modified styling compared to the current LP560-4 model, more precisely up front and at the rear.
Very sharp styling made its appearance on this new LP560-4 model, both triangular and trapezoidal design have become a key part of the Raging Bull language, and if you look at the front of the new Gallardo LP560-4 you immediately notice the diagonal lines in the air intakes ... both color coded to the car and finished in black the new lines make the Gallardo look wider than the original model.
On the side of the front bumper on the new Gallardo LP560-4 the air intakes became larger and we see brand new 19-inch wheels called 'Apollo polished' in a very special finish ... the wheels receive a matte black finish before the spokes get machined into a nice polished silver.
At the rear the air outlets get diagonal lines too to keep in style with the front, and they also grown larger to extract hot air even faster. Note that Lamborghini offers an optional 'Style Package' that turns several matte black parts on the front spoiler, grilles and rear trim in a high gloss black finish ... resulting in a very powerful look.
I must admit the look and feel of the new Gallardo LP560-4 is very different from the original style, the new front and rear sections look special while the interior took a more subtle route, the black alcantara seats receive the stunning Q-Citura stitching while the dashboard gets finished in leather and we see the yellow shade again on the central console and the door panels ... while the door handles get the glossy black treatment.
