Official: Gallardo Production will End Following the 2013 Model Year

Earlier this year, at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, Lamborghini unveiled an updated version of the Gallardo LP 560-4 . Today, the Italian company has confirmed that this Gallardo will indeed be the last edition offered for the aging supercar, as its replacement arrives sometime in 2013.

For the 2013 model year, the Gallardo continues to come with a 5.2-liter V-10 powerhouse that pumps out 552 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 398 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine will mate to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional E-gear transmission. The final-edition Gallardo sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and ends up at a top speed of 201.9 mph.

Updates for the 2013 model year include an updated front fascia with slightly different front bumper, a new engine vent at the rear and a set of all-new 19-inch alloy wheels. Lamborghini is also offering an optional Style package that adds high-gloss black paint on the front spoiler and grilles.

if we consider the fact that they have to still fight ferrari, be better than a porsche, an aston martin and a sporty jag, well...we shall see how well they will manage to do!

hey, they have done it before, they will be just fine now. i hope :-s

i think debound outlined the important features the next lambo must have. no easy task indeed.

the engineers from lamborghini have a difficult task ahead of them: make a car better than the gallardo, but not as good as the aventador. still, make it better than what the competition has to offer.

alex is right! and i bet it will be better than the car it replaces: gallardo!

we can extract the good new out of this: a new baby lambo will be launched next year!

cheap or not, it was and it will remain a great car! and we all know that!

hey, it is reasonably priced considering the market section it is positioned in. but it is not cheap at well over 150.000$.

i would try to say that the murciellago is quite reasonably priced. but i might be somehow wrong...

this is a sad day for the automotive industry. although the gallardo was not the best lambo had to offer (they still had to sell the murciellago and now they have the aventador) it is a great car!

hey, maybe the video wasn’t made by an italian. maybe that’s why it has less than 2 minutes and is so comprehensive.

an italian usually needs both hands and 15 minutes to express an idea. all lamborghini needed were some images and less than 2 minutes.

i loved the video. it just puts lambo in the italian context, which makes it even better!
