Limited Special Edition: Lamborghini Gallardo SE

The Lamborghini Gallardo SE (Special Edition) is limited to 250 units. It is characterized by two-tone body paint, an even more sporty interior and technical improvements.

The basis for the Special Edition is the extreme and uncompromising Lamborghini Gallardo.

The Lamborghini Gallardo SE is equipped with permanent four wheel drive, 6 speed gearbox, aluminum space frame, ESP and ASR, ABS, ABD, air conditioning, as well as two front and two side airbags.

The color range consists of six alternatives: two grey shades, Grigio Altair and Grigio Proteus, as well as Balloon White (white), Giallo Midas (yellow), Arancio Borealis (orange) and Verde Ithaca (green). The roof, engine bonnet, front and rear spoiler as well as the two side mirrors are painted in Nero Noctis (black), making them stand out against the body color. The rear lights are slightly tinted. The newly designed "Callisto" rims give an extra touch to the overall appearance, which is complemented by the colored brake calipers (available in grey or yellow).

The interior design reflects the two-tone concept by having all piping and stitching matching the exterior body color of the car. The Lamborghini shield is embossed on the headrest of the driver and passenger seats. The Lamborghini script has been carefully inserted into the dashboard. The carpets are black having borders that match the exterior body color of the car. Needless to say, the entire interior is handcrafted in partially perforated leather of supreme quality. The interior design underlines the new, more aggressive personality of this Special Edition.

The limited Special Edition is richly equipped with standard features such as a rear view camera, which, in combination with the built-in multimedia screen, facilitates parking. The sports suspension, P Zero Corsa tires (specifically developed by Pirelli for more sporty driving) and sports steering wheel are all standard features on the Special Edition. The long list of standard equipment also includes an exclusive car cover.

A considerable range of additional equipment is available. Customers can also choose the robotized e.gear gearbox, as well as a navigation system (depending on the country), heated side mirrors, fully electrical and heated seats. A winter package (heated seats, side mirrors, heated wash jets, rubber floor mats, 12 Volt outlet), and a lifting system are also available. Standard tyres instead of sports tyres can be ordered at no extra cost.

The Gallardo SE benefits from several technical modifications. The 10-cylinder engine has the same power has the new Spyder, with 520 bhp at 8000 rpm. The result is shown in the improved acceleration from 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds (4.2 seconds previously), while the top speed is now 315 km/h (309 km/h previously).

These new performance levels are shown impressively on a car equipped with e.gear and a feature called "thrust mode". This optimizes acceleration and gear changes from a standing start through all gears.

Additional modifications mean more direct and precise steering, which improve even further the superb handling of the vehicle.
