Lamborghini presents the Gallardo LP 560-4 Bicolore

An extreme look for a Special Edition supersports car

Sant’Agata Bolognese, January 26, 2011 –     Just a month before the world debut at Geneva Motor Show of its  V12 replacement for the Murciélago, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting at the 2011 Qatar Motor Show a highly exclusive and appealing vehicle making  its world premiere:  the Gallardo LP 560-4 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 LP 550-2.  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 LP 560-4, 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.

Unique design DNA
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.

Even more extreme, thanks to a personalized appearance 
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.

Top-quality and highly individual interior
The contrast between black and color is repeated in an understated, elegant manner in the interior of the Gallardo LP 560-4 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).

V10 like a work of art in a glass display
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.
