Lamborghini-Gallardo-Pedigree

Like other Lambos the special 50th anniversary Gallardo has some pretty wild styling, though it’s not as over-the-top radical as the Aventador, especially in Bianco Opalis, the car’s shimmering white paint. Still, drivers of this model will most certainly be noticed by passersby.

This is a new version of company’s best-selling vehicle, and not surprisingly it’s built to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary, which is this year. With rear-wheel drive and an available manual transmission it’s truly the last “real man’s” Lamborghini. This car’s replacement will ONLY be offered with a dual-clutch automatic. Where’s that sad-trombone sound effect? We need a symphony of them to decry this tragedy!

The car also features a racy looking carbon-fiber rear wing as well as light-weight bucket seats from the Gallardo Superleggera. A transparent engine cover is a treat to driver and bystander alike.
