"The Lamborghini Gallardo is a sports car built by Lamborghini from 2003 to 2013. It is Lamborghini's best-selling model with 14,022 being built throughout its lifetime. Named after a famous breed of fighting bull, the V-10 Gallardo has been Lamborghini's sales leader and stable-mate to a succession of V-12 flagship models, the Murciélago and Aventador. On November 25, 2013, the last Gallardo was rolled off of the production line." - wikipedia
Production of the replacement for the Gallardo, the Huracán, began in 2014.
The first generation Gallardo (as is presented in this website) came with a 5 litre 90 degree V10 (4961cc). The Gallardo offers two choices of transmissions, a conventional (H-Box) six-speed manual transmission, and an advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled semi-automatic robotized manual. The production Gallardo was designed by Luc Donckerwolke and was based on the 1995 Calà prototype by Italdesign Giugiaro.
Lamborghini recalled about 1,500 Gallardo Coupé and Spyder models, from model years 2004 to 2006, because of the possibility of power steering fluid leaking and the risk of fire. The cars were built from May 2003 through April 2008. In the UK, well known specialist BHP offer an upgrade.
