While getting ready for the Cabrera, some fans prepared a very cool tribute video to the Gallardo . After all. it was the best-sold supercar in Lamborghini’s history, with a total of 14,022 units sold, — about half of the the cars ever sold by the Italian supercar builder.

Just yesterday, Lamborghini announced the production of the last Gallardo and today it has already started to tease its successor. The Italian company launched a new microsite — www.hexagonproject.com — that allows visitors to "discover the roar of the new creature from Lamborghini."

What does this mean? Well, visitors can push the ignition button from the screen to hear the revs of the supercar’s new engine. Lamborghini said nothing about it, but rumors suggest it will be a considerably improved version of the current V-10 engine with its output nearing the 600-horsepower range.

Our only question is why the microsite is called "Hexagon Project" when most people expect the new supercar to be called Cabrera ? Could it because we are maybe not listening to the Gallardo’s successor, but just another special based on the Aventador — a model that features lots of hexagonal lines? We can’t tell for sure, but considering the Cabrera is the only model that Lamborghini is currently testing, to our knowledge, we tend to believe that this is the first teaser for the Gallardo successor.

Lamborghini Gallardo was unveiled in 2003 and during its decade-long run, it was Lamborghini ’s sales leader. Now — on November 25th. 2013 — ten years later, it’s time to say good-bye to an Icon in the supercar world, as the last Gallardo rolled off the production line.

The final Gallardo was number 14,022, and it was an LP 570-4 Spyder Performante variant draped in a Rosso Mars hue. The model will go to an unnamed private collector who will receive his car in the upcoming weeks.

To understand what a successful car the Gallardo was, you have to know that during its entire lifespan, Lamborghini sold a total of 30,000 units; nearly half of those were Gallardos. Also, before the Gallardo rolled into showrooms, the company sold a total of 250 units per year. The Gallardo’s presence drove sales numbers up to a total of 2,000 units per year.

With the Gallardo making its triumphant exit, Lambo will now focus on the supercar’s successor, which will be called either the Cabrera or Huracan.

While the world is preparing for the launch of the new Lamborghini Cabrera , which is the successor to the Gallardo , German tuner, xXx Performance, decided to offer toss the Gallardo a new kit as a going-away present.

The kit is based on a 2005 Gallardo , and it’s all about transforming the Italian supercar into a real beast. For this the tuner updated the 5.0-liter, V-10 engine with an updated ECU, special carbon air-boxes and a sports exhaust system. With all these changes the engine will now deliver a total of 560 horsepower — up from its standard 512 horsepower — but the tuner also offers three stages of twin-turbo upgrades that will increase the engine’s output to anywhere between 850 and 1,200 horsepower.

Along with the engine upgrades, the tuner also installed a body kit that starts with LSD gull-wing doors and continues with numerous elements made in carbon fiber. The car is wrapped in a special dull black or silver foil combined with neon orange for the side skirts, the inner edges of the front air ducts and the roof edge.

They say that you only celebrate a 50th birthday once, so when it happens, you might as well make it as memorable as possible.

Italian automaker Lamborghini is in the middle of its 50th anniversary celebrations and since the start of the year, it’s celebrated it with the kind of extravagance befitting of its stature in the industry.

Recently, things took an interesting turn in the United Kingdom when the UK Lamborghini 50th Anniversary 50th Anniversary Tour officially opening its doors to the public.

Held at the Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire, over 50 Lamborghinis participated in the event with models ranging from the classic Countachs all the way to the current Aventador Roadsters . In between, there were Murcielagos , Diablos , Gallardos , and even the one-off Oakley Design Aventador LP760 Nasser Edition.

Needless to say, it was as close to a Lamborghini overdose as you could possibly get, and not surprisingly, Shmee150 was right in the middle of all the festivities with cameras in tow.

when it comes to Russians and their supercars — or any car, for that matter — we all know they can get a little over the top. Okay, maybe a lot over the top... Lets take the guy in the above video who decided to push his Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 updated by Underground Racing to its limits.

This bad-boy pumps 2,005 horsepower from its V-10 engine and can hit a as high as 250 mph in a one-mile-long straight stretch. The ugly truth about extreme tuning like this one, is that it comes with plenty of risk, and this dude learned just how risky is was in the above video.

He launched his Gallardo down a one-mile stretch and hit a monstrous 250 mph, but just as he crossed the finish line, the engine went up in flames. The timing of the ignition was so impeccable that it seems like this was just a case of really cool special effects.

After the fire was extinguished, the Gallardo looked pretty bad, but what can you do. Great results sometimes call for sacrifices, right? Just light a cigarette, have a chat and things will somehow fall into place — at least that’s is how this guy handled the situation.

Launched just a few day ago, the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse has already had its first extreme testing, as the folks over sportauto.de pushed the newest Gallardo to its limit. Test driver Christian Gebhardt was behind the wheel and he looks rather comfortable in the seat of the speedy Lambo .

We would be quite comfy too, as the new Squadra Corse is powered by the same V-10 engine used in the Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, which delivers 570 horsepower — 10 horsepower more than the base Gallardo . This is enough power to sprint the new supercar to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, to 124 mph in just 10.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 198 mph. This hopped-up Gallardo checks in at $259,100.

Enjoy the video and do not forget to turn up the volume really high so you can hear the V-10 engine in all its glory!

Youtube user Marchettino had the chance to shot another great video. During the Lamborghini BlancPain championship event he caught a large amount of 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo SuperTrofeos racing at the Misano racetrack. The new version looks way more aggressive and loud, and you will have the chance to see them from different points of the track!

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that delivers a total of 570 horsepower. The model also received a new aerodynamic kit that included a new spoiler design, a new rear diffuser and new wheel arches. These changes will lead to a 120-percent improvement in aerodynamic efficiency.

If you have the right racing license, you can rent the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo models for about $35,000. This will give you the chance to hear it up close. If this is not a possibility for you, you can at least get an idea from the above video.

Hertz may not be the first company you think of when conversations turn to granting wishes, but the rental company effectively did just that with the launch of its "Dream Car Program".

For a world-renowned car rental company that typically offers the usual cadre of midsize econo-boxes, Hertz’z decision to finally add a list of exotic and luxury cars to its collection of thrashed rental buckets is the kind of thing that excites Average Joes like us.

With the "Dream Car Program," Hertz is set to offer some pretty interesting models, almost all of which we’d love to get our hands on if only we had the financial resources to do so. There’s a Lamborghini Gallardo , a Porsche 911 , a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG , and a Ferrari F430. , among other exotics.

For only $395, you can get your hands on either a Porsche Boxster or a Tesla Model S. If you’ve got $1,000 at your disposal, you get to whip an R8 or a Vantage . Tack on another $500 and you can level up to the Italian exotics.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.

Granted, a lot of car rental companies are already offering supercar rentals like the one Hertz is dipping into, but none of them have the mainstream cache as this company. So, if you’re interested in renting any of these exotics, Hertz’s rental program will be implemented in 35 markets across the US, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Diego. You can see all of the available cars and the markets they are available in on the Hertz Dream Car site.
