• 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 GZ8 Limited Edition

While everyone is waiting for the final edition Gallardo, Lamborghini has decided to offer its faithful Chinese customers a new special edition called the Gallardo LP550-2 GZ8 Edizione Limitata. The name is quite a mouthful, but it has a purpose. The GZ stands for Guangzou, while the number 8 indicates the number of units that will be built. The downside to this special edition is the price tag usually associated with a limited special edition; all eight customers will have to fork over 4 million Yuan (or about $600,000 at the current rates) to park this baby in their garages.

For that kind of money, they’ll get a very special set of orange wheels and a carbon fiber rear wing, matte black engine cover, and glossy black roof borrowed from the Super Trofeo Stradale Edition. The package continues with carbon fiber exterior rear view mirrors, carbon fiber side skirts, special black and orange striping in the Superleggera style on the side, and a new front bumper. Since this is a special edition, there will be "’GZ8 Edizione Limitata" logo on the outside of the super car, as well as aGZ8 logo on the headrests, to further differentiate them from the rest.

So far, we don’t really see anything that warrants a $600,000 price tag, except for the fact that only eight will be built. Those orange wheels must be expensive! (Insert sarcasm here)

What’s so funny is that they decided to sell it to China. Well, for me they will offer Chinese these kinds of car with low quality components!

Can they make another Gallardo LP550-2 GZ8 Limited Edition but with good color combination?

The 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo limited edition seems very familiar with the other past model but the very special set of orange wheels, and a carbon fiber rear wing will definitely differentiate from the other cars. Its simplicity surpassed its past model of Lamborghini Gallardo.

I don’t think that this will make it on car sales if they sell it on Chinese.

The Combination of color is really a distraction. I don’t really like though this car is somehow awesome.

No doubt that Lamborghini is known to have best performance of cars even the style is awesome but what I don’t like about it is the choice of colors. I don’t like the Orange wheel of it. It really look ridiculous.
