I know what you are thinking : another special edition model based on the Lamborghini Gallardo, and I guess you are right, but this one will only be sold on the Malaysian market, so you could say it is something like the Murciélago LP670-4 Super Veloce China Edition ... and just like this latter super car the Gallardo LP550-2 MLE (which stands for Malaysia Limited Edition) is a very limited production model, only 20 will be made, and it is only available in Bianco Monocerus, Verde Ithaca or Arancio Borealis.
Now we are talking about the LP550-2 version of the well known Gallardo, so the V10 engine has about 550 Bhp on tap, and this power is transmitted to the rear wheels only ... just like it was on the Valentino Balboni special, as it was also an LP550-2.
Now the LP550-2 MLE does have some nice trumps to attract buyers ... it looks a lot like the LP570-4 Superleggera model on the outside, but with a regular, more luxurious interior that isn't as race inspired as the Superleggera edition, the LP550-2 MLE actually uses a beautiful combination of leather and suede for the interior, so it has some more creature comforts ... so looks and luxury, what more could you ask for.
The Gallardo LP550-2 Malaysia Limited Edition uses the same, race inspired front bumper as the LP570-4, the side skirts are made from carbon fiber, as is the large rear diffuser that holds four magnificent titanium exhaust tips. Add the mat black exterior rear view mirrors and the mat black wheels into the equation and you are looking at a rather nice package ... and remember: only 20 will be made by Automobili Lamborghini SpA for Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur.
