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.
