The final model was a Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante in Rosso Mars (red) and it is destined for a private collector. For those For those who don’t know, Lamborghini built the Gallardo for ten years and during this period it produced 14,022 units.

If in the first four decades Lamborghini produced just 250 units per year, in the decade of the Gallardo, the volume increased by around 2,000 cars per year on average. The first Gallardo was unveiled by Lamborghini at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show, while the 2005 the Gallardo Spyder made its debut.

Occupying another niche in the broad spectrum of Gallardo versions were the LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni limited edition and the LP 550-2 Spyder: with their rearwheel drive, they appealed to a particularly purist group of sports car fans.
