Article by Christian Andrei, on January 26, 2011

Lamborghini unveiled today ahead of the 2011 Geneva Motor Show the Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore, a special edition of its entry-level model, which will be produced for the European and Asian-Pacific markets, while the American market will receive it in the version LP 550-2. As its name says it, the car features an exclusive two-tone finish with matching interior and promises to offer a full range of standard equipment.

The car is powered by the same V10 engine found on the standard LP 560-4, delivering 560 hp and capable to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and to a top speed of 325 km/h or 202 mph.

From the window-line upwards (including pillars, roof, engine hood and rear spoiler), the vehicle is decorated in Noctis Black - a pastel black that contrasts perfectly with the lower area of the body, available in a choice of five colors: Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Bianco Monocerus and Blu Caelum.

The exterior design is complted by the Skorpius aluminum-alloy forged rims with 15 thin spokes finished in titanium gray enamel. Inside, the color scheme is continued and the car has the instrument panel, seats, door panels and other elements in the passenger compartment are upholstered in the finest “Nero Persus” leather.

The contrast is achieved by the precise stitching that is colored to match the exterior paintwork: yellow, orange, blue and gray (also used on the Bianco Monocerus version). The bezel of the e-gear transmission on the center console is in Nero Noctis, just like the upper area of the vehicle.

Exterior Design

The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore is clearly another styling highlight in the carmaker’s ten-cylinder model series. Its exterior finish is complemented by the black on the upper area of the body, thereby giving this version of the Gallardo a more imposing personality as it is now wider and sticks better to the road.

The lower area of the body of the Bicolore could be finished in Arancio Borealis, Bianco Monocerus, or Blu Caelum as well as Giallo Midas and Grigio Telesto. The areas starting from the window line and upwards – including engine hood, roof, pillars and rear spoiler – are finished in Noctis Black.

Accentuating this bi-color finish are Skorpius aluminum-alloy rims featuring 15 thin spokes – finished in in titanium gray enamel -- forged to minimize unsprung weight. Lamborghini, meanwhile, provided the air intakes, the upper section of the rear diffuser and the front spoiler with a high-gloss black finish.

Interior Design

This black-color theme is also evident in the interior of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore. Upholstered in finest "Nero Persus" leather are the car’s instrument panel, seats, door panels and other features in the passenger compartment.

The upholstery features a stitching colored to match the exterior paintwork: yellow, orange, blue and gray. On the other hand, the bezel of the e-gear transmission on the center console is also finished in Nero Noctis.

Of course, the high quality interior of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore is a result of the use of high-quality materials crafted with undeniable professionalism and fine Italian workmanship.

Serving as the core of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore is a 5.2 liter, 90-degree V-10 engine with stratified direct injection. While a tempered glass hood secures and protects the engine of the LP560-4 Bicolore, it also provides a good view of this powerful engine.

Furthermore, this engine is mated to a fast e-gear automated transmission as controlled by paddles on the steering column. It comes with a lifting system that allows to be raised for safer travel.

Furthermore, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore could be availed with an array of optional equipment and accessories, including satellite navigation system and a rear-view camera, as well as a brake system with carbon-ceramic discs and heated power seats.

Press Release

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore

Just a month before the world debut of its V12 replacement for the Murciélago at 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini has presented at the 2011 Qatar Motor Show a highly exclusive and appealing vehicle making its world premiere: the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore, a Special Edition supersports car which will be produced for the European and Asian-Pacific markets, while for the American market it will be only available in the version LP550-2. As its name implies, this special series features an exclusive two-tone finish with matching interior, and offers a full range of standard equipment. A refined contrast between the black roof and the color of the rest of the body (available in a choice of five shades) further emphasizes the sharp, dynamic lines of the Gallardo LP560-4, while simultaneously enhancing its sportiness and adding a touch of elegance to an extremely prestigious model in the field of automotive design.

The most successful super sports car in Lamborghini's history captures the imagination with the brutal power of its 560 hp V10 engine, the absolute grip of its permanent all-wheel drive and the razor-sharp precision of its chassis. Every kilometer in the Lamborghini Gallardo is an intense experience of explosive dynamics and absolute control. Its breathtaking performance is indicated by the 3.7 seconds it takes to reach 100 km/h and its top speed of 325 km/h.

"With the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore, Lamborghini demonstrates once again the extreme, uncompromising and unmistakably Italian nature of our brand. The super sports cars from Lamborghini combine volcanic energy with design that is as unique as it is stylish," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

The success of Lamborghini's unequalled design DNA lies in the beauty of highly-concentrated power and precise function. The Gallardo is the sheer essence of form with a purist approach, so the body shell is crisply sculpted and completely free from decoration. A timeless piece of design and an uncompromising driving machine - the Lamborghini Gallardo is both.

With its new Bicolore model, Lamborghini is now setting a further design highlight in the ten-cylinder model series. The colored exterior finish matched with the black on the upper area of the body gives the Gallardo a new, more aggressive personality that looks even wider, even more extreme and innately adhered to the road.

From the window-line upwards (including pillars, roof, engine hood and rear spoiler), the vehicle is decorated in Noctis Black - a pastel black that contrasts perfectly with the lower area of the body, available in a choice of five colors: Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Bianco Monocerus and Blu Caelum.

The exterior appearance is enhanced by Skorpius aluminum-alloy rims with 15 thin spokes that are forged to minimize unsprung weight and are finished in titanium gray enamel. And, the air intakes and front spoiler have a high-gloss black finish, as does the upper section of the rear diffuser.

The contrast between black and color is repeated in an understated, elegant manner in the interior of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore. The instrument panel, seats, door panels and other elements in the passenger compartment are upholstered in the finest "Nero Persus" leather, with a refined contrast provided by precise stitching that is colored to match the exterior paintwork: yellow, orange, blue and gray (also used on the Bianco Monocerus version).

The bezel of the e-gear transmission on the center console is in Nero Noctis, just like the upper area of the vehicle. Obviously, the interior is finished in the Lamborghini tradition using only the materials of the very highest quality, which are crafted with undisputed professionalism and fine Italian workmanship.

The complete range of standard equipment includes the fast e-gear automated transmission controlled by paddles on the steering column. A lifting system enables the front axle to be raised for safer travel onto ramps and over humps in the road, and the engine hood in tempered glass provides a stunning view of the heart of the vehicle: a 5.2 liter, 90° V-10 engine with stratified direct injection.

From a satellite navigation system to a rear-view camera, from a brake system with carbon-ceramic discs to heated power seats, a long list of optional equipment and accessories allows the vehicle to be adapted to the personal requirements of any client.

Well over 10,000 Gallardos have left the production facility at company headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese - a unique success story in the world of super sports cars. The Bicolore Special Edition is particularly intended for the enthusiast who desires a supercar with an exclusive appearance and remarkable design. In any event, he or she will own a Lamborghini that is altogether distinguished by an extremely dynamic character, maximum driving excitement, yet an ability to be driven daily.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore completes Lamborghini's ten-cylinder model range, which is enjoying enormous resonance worldwide with its broad spectrum of individual characters. While the Gallardo LP560-4 is already a highly trained, extreme athlete, the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera takes the notion of thoroughbred high performance even further. Thanks to its extensive experience in carbon-fiber lightweight engineering, Lamborghini succeeded in reducing its weight by a further 70 kilograms. At 2.35 kilograms per hp, the power-to-weight ratio of the Superleggera is the best in its class, with breathtaking performance guaranteed.

The Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, on the other hand, offers a very different kind of extreme driving pleasure - every trip with the roof down is a journey with a hurricane, yet with maximum protection. This can only be bettered - in true Lamborghini style - by the Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante. Its purist carbon-fiber lightweight engineering, according to Lamborghini's tradition, adds an even sharper edge to the dynamics.
