2005 Lamborghini Gallardo SE

July 20th, 2005 – The Gallardo SE is Lamborghini’s new special edition of their successful V10 supercar. Limited to 250 units, it is characterized by two-tone paint, an enhanced interior and technical improvements.

Like the standard model, the Gallardo SE is equipped with permanent 4WD, a 6 speed gearbox, an aluminum space frame, ESP and ASR, ABS, ABD, air conditioning, as well as two front and two side airbags.

The new SE is offered in six body colors which are contrasted by the black painted engine bonnet, front and rear spoiler as well as the two side mirrors. The newly designed “Callisto” rims give an extra touch to the overall appearance which is complemented by the painted brake calipers (available in grey or yellow).

The entire interior is handcrafted in leather and, exclusive to the SE, continues the two-tone concept by having all piping and stitching matching the exterior body color. Other details include a sports steering wheel, additional shields embossed in the headrests and a rear view camera, which in combination with the built-in multimedia screen, facilitates better parking.

The gearbox is now equipped with shorter gear ratios in the first five gears. The differnce in performance can be shown in the acceleration times: the SE goes from 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds which is an improvement of 0.2 seconds. A new top speed of 196 mph is also possible. Additional performance comes from a sports suspension in combination with the P Zero Corsa tires which are all standard features on the Special Edition.

The Gallardo SE will be available in Europe from September onwards. Customers can optionally choose the robotized gearbox e.gear, 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.
