Seems like Automobili Lamborghini SpA is putting out limited edition models based on the Gallardo like there is no tomorrow, we've just mentioned the 'Gold' edition for the Chinese market and now we received news about a similar limited production run of 10 units for the Japanese market.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bianco Rosso has been created as a celebration model for the 45th anniversary of the Japanese importer, taking a white LP560-4 from the production line with the optional glass engine cover the factory adds some touches of bright red paint to remind us of the Japanese flag, which also happens to combine white and red as you might know.
On the LP560-4 Bianco Rosso we see red being painted not only on the exterior rear view mirrors and the glass engine cover surround but also on the brake calipers that are nicely contrasting with the black finished Cordelia wheels and the red shade is also taken inside the car.
The seats get an Ad Personam treatment using black alcantara for the seat and back center while the sides are covered in the softest red leather found in Italy, add some nicely contrasting red stitching and a red hand brake together with red door handles and you end up with a rather nice looking overall impression.
Personally I would say the red engine cover is a but much, but that's my opinion and I'm sure people will love to get hold of one of the ten units available ... and let's face it, this will probably be the swansong of the Gallardo range anyway, perhaps a few more limited edition available on some local markets, but I think it is safe to say the Gallardo is on its final approach to being replaced with a new model in 2013.
