Article by Christian Andrei, on November 27, 2013

If you are a fan of the Lamborghini Gallardo, we have bad news for you: the last Gallardo has just left the production line. 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.

The Gallardo Superleggera came along in 2007 with 530 hp, while the second generation Gallardo arrived in 2008. The second-generation Spyder was introduced in 2008, while the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera followed in 2010 with an increase in output of 570 hp. The second generation Gallardo saw the open-top Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante.

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.

The pinnacle of sporting performance among the total of 32 Gallardo variants was marked by the Super Trofeo Stradale and, finally, the Gallardo Squadra Corse. The latest Squadra Corse has a dry weight of 1340 kg and is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.4 seconds, 200 km/h (124 km/h) in 10.4 seconds, while the top speed is limited at 320 km/h or 200 mph.
