Let’s say you picked up a 2004 to 2008 Gallardo only to fall in love with the Gallardo LP-570-4 when it hit showrooms in 2012. Instead of taking a huge hit trading up to the LP-570-4, DMC – no, not THAT DMC, the German car tuner – has a solution for you in the form of its Gallardo SOHO upgrade.

DMC starts off by eliminating the Gallardo’s front fascia and adding in a replacement piece that has more of the pointed nose, like the LP-570. On the bottom of the fascia are the signature air intakes and lower lip spoilers. On each end of the front fascia is the same diffuser you’ll find on an LP-570, showing DMC’s attention to detail.

The rear end is another part of the Lamborghini Gallardo that has obvious differences between the LP570 and the base model, so DMC completely revised it. DMC began by ripping off the entire rear fascia and replacing it with one that boasts the same lengthwise grated opening that the LP-570 boasts. Under the fascia, DMC added in a rear diffuser that very closely mimics that on the LP-570, including the lower brake light assembly and the cutout near the center.

Also on the backside DMC also includes a pair of dual-exit exhaust tip, just like the LP-570, and even a twin-pedestal wing with center high-mounted stoplight. Every body piece added to the Gallardo is made from lightweight carbon fiber, to avoid adding too much weight to the base car.

The interior boasts an overhaul as well. DMC will fit your Gallardo with carbon fiber and Italian leather to complete the aesthetic overhaul.

In the engine compartment, the 2004 through 2008 Gallardo gives up 58 to 73 horsepower, depending on the year. DMC’s engineers helped compensate for that with some engine management mods that bump the Gallardo’s up about 40 horsepower making its new top speed 322 km/h (200 mph). For a little extra scratch, you can add in the DMC sport catalytic converter and get an extra 28 ponies.

Overall, this is a pretty sweet build, but we can’t find pricing anywhere on it. We have reached out to DMC for pricing information.

I’m disappointed on the power of this car. Most car have more Horsepower than this one.

They are Comparing Gallardo to the Bugatti. And I can say that Bugatti doesn’t have the chance to win over the Gallardo.

Lamborghini always surprised me with kind of car. Actually my friends really love this car and recommend it to me. Now I know why he really loves this car.

I am not a fan of Lamborghini, especially the design and also the price but what I love about Lamborghini is the engine like this car.

I don’t really hate the design because this design is the trademark of Lamborghini.

I might like this but not because of the look of it but because of the performance. Because Lamborghini is very known on it’s performance rather than the design.

58 to 73 horsepower? Aw. It is not that powerful.

I’m not fond of the endless modification of the Gallardo. I’m afraid if they are not capable on producing a new model with new designs, but I still like the Gallardo same with Aventador.

For me, Bugatti is much better in investment than Lamborghini.

I know that the front gear of this Gallardo is the uniqueness of this car but I don’t really like it.

I still don’t know the price of this gorgeous car. I really really really want to know.

This Gallardo is something that Lamborghini is proud of. The performance of this car is really increadible.

Actually this Gallardo is much better than any Burgatti’s unit. I think the design is not that eye-catchy but the engine is the one that Lamborghini is proud of.

I think having one of Lamborghini is much better than Bugatti. But eather way, I love both of them.

Lamborghini always amaze us by it’s performance but the price is a bit TOO pricey but even though that’s the problem of Lamborghini, I will still consider and choose it.

Lamborghini never fails to amaze me.

I don’t know why these people always tell Bugatti is much better ? Yes, in the price Bugatti is much better but when it comes to performance, I think the one that you should invest of is Lamborghini.

  (309) posted on 09.16.2012

Performance and looks is a deadly combination for this Gallardo, Lambos are natural show stoppers that’s why I’d choose it over any other brand.

Investing on Bugatti is much better than buying that will perform better on the first five years.

If you only want to invest on cars, why not go with Bugatti which is more reasonable to buy?
