News of a custom one-off car from Lamborghini celebrating its 50th anniversary emerged weeks ago and now the company is teasing the car, if only for a split second.
Last November, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said the new model “will not be a revival or retro,” while offering little else.

While it might be easy to assume the car will be a tweaked version of the Gallardo, there are just as many reasons to think otherwise.
First, Lamborghini has a facility dedicated to special models like the Sesto Elemento and Aventador J, which it built in a staggering six weeks. Second, the company proved its capacity to come up with something crazy in almost no time after building the Aventador J for Geneva.
While there’s a solid chance the car could, in fact, be one last special Gallardo, it would sell Lamborghini a little short to make that assumption.
