2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Facelift at the Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on September 28, 2012

A slightly modified Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. Lamborghini’s top-selling model received revisions like modified front and rear styling, a new set of matt black 19in alloy wheels and bigger air intakes in front of the front wheels. Consumers can order the supercar with a new Style Package, which paints the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and parts of the rear trim with a gloss black finish.

There are more personalization options available at Lamborghini’s ‘Ad Personam’ programme. An Edizione Tecnica specification is new to the Gallardo lineup.

It is offered for the high-performance LP 570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante models, which will receive a new fixed rear wing, carbon ceramic brakes and a new appearance with three separate colour combinations. Showrooms will display the revised LP 560-4 and new Edizione Tecnica models starting in November. The Gallardo LP 550-2 coupé and Spyder models have not been changed.

Lamborghini Gallardo is the more compact relative of the Murcielago. It is designed as a technologically advanced sports car that can also function as a daily use car. Its engineers have successfully integrated the best comfort features with the impeccable performance expected of a Lamborghini. The outcome is a 2-seater aggressive bull that is 4.3-meters long and that speeds for more than 300 kph.

This makes the Gallardo a great archetype of the company’s best-performing sports car that is pleasant to drive not only in the race track but also in the country or city lanes.

It was built not only to uphold the qualities of the former Lamborghinis, but also to augment its superior individuality and modern appearance. The Lamborghini Gallardo truly appears stunning and looks uncompromising and fast even when it’s on a stop.

The internal features are indeed modern and truly of an exceptional quality, although some can identify a few Audi attributes. It is unfortunate, however, that the car doesn’t have the popular scissor doors since they were reserved by Lamborghini for the V12 lineup.

Operated by an aluminum 5-liter V10 engine, the Lamborghini Gallardo generates up to 500 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and a 510 Nm torque at 4,500 rpm. Throttle is regulated by the Drive by Wire software with a couple of electronic throttle bodies. The Lamborghini Viscous Traction configuration also sends the power to the wheels which efficiently distributes traction at about 70% rear and 30% front when in normal conditions.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

At the 2012 Paris Motorshow Automobili Lamborghini is presenting the most successful super sports car of its entire history with a new design - even more aggressive, and more extreme: the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and the LP570-4 Edizione Tecnica. The new Gallardo LP560-4 - equipped with permanent four wheel drive- has a new front end and a new rear, while top models in the Gallardo line-up,the LP570-4 Superleggera and the LP570-4 Spyder Performante, will be offered also as the further enhanced Edizione Tecnica. The six models of the Gallardo family are now clearly differentiated and can be customized perfectly to suit every type of driver.

The new Gallardo models will be available at Lamborghini dealerships from November 2012.

The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

The unique design with its razor-sharp lines is one of the key factors in its great success worldwide. Nearly 13,000 units have already left the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory.

The Gallardo design has now been further accentuated in the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The new front end is characterized by triangular and trapezoidal forms - two shapes that are highly typical of the Lamborghini design language. Divided by diagonal elements in body color and in black, the overall look of the front end is broader and more forceful, giving it an even stronger bond with the road.

To complete the new look larger air intakes have been created ahead of the front wheels and the new 19-inch "Apollo polished" alloy wheels, painted in matt black and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished silver.

Also new is the even more dynamic rear end design on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The triangle and trapezoid are, of course, the characteristic design elements here, too. The air outlet for the power unit now has now a wider surface area, which improves its thermodynamic efficiency. A new Style Package is available as an option and offers high-gloss black paintwork on the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and the transverse element of the rear trim to give the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 an even more powerful look.
