one-off Lamborghini Gallardo Tricolore

  1. Some travelers insist that a country's character and culture are best understood by tasting their local food. We'll offer instead that you can tell the most about a country by looking at the special-edition cars honoring their football teams. In America, for example, you might find a pick-up truck spangled with decals honoring the local NFL franchise. In Italy, on the other hand, they've decked out a unique Lamborghini in the colors of their national soccer team.

    This one-of-a-kind Gallardo has been painted the same shade of blue as the national team's jerseys. The roof has been painted in the tricolore, the red, white and green of the Italian flag. The interior is likewise trimmed in solid blue alcantara, and the engine – which is otherwise left completely stock with "only" 520 hp – is said to be adorned with a gold-tone engine cover.

    The one-off Gallardo was produced through Lamborghini's factory personalization program, and is offered by the dealership in Padova at a whopping €230,000...a considerable €85k premium for what amounts to little more than a special paint job. That's more than a few yards difference over that Ford F-150 New England Patriots edition you've been eyeing.
  2. What ??? Why ?? Ferrari charging 5k forthe stripe was a joke. But Lambo charging 85k for this is ...i dont know what.
  3. maybe for charity?

    biut you can order a dark-blue metallic one from the work and take it to your local paint shop for just 850$ if you really want to get it painted like this

    also, isn´t it 1 year late to clebrate the world soccer championship?

    a Union Jack or the Stars % Stripes would loook that bad either
  4. Price apart, they could come up with a better painting scheme to celebrate the title.
  5. Is this one also painted in Germany? <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
  6. I hate flags on cars. nice interior though.
  8. Lambo needs more special editions. In fact, I think every car that comes off the production line at this point needs to be its own special edition.
  9. That's a great question Panda.

    I wonder if this car to was painted in Germany.
  10. From what I understand, this isn't a Lamborghini special edition but rather something that dealership ordered and jacked up the price.
  11. Nice audi
  12. Does this really surprise you coming from Lamborghini? Its just another marketing publicity stunt for "psychological reasons" to make you believe the Gallardo is Italian.
  13. I don't buy that Lambo doesn't have anything to do with this. I believe you about the dealer jacking up the price, but I can nearly guarantee you they knew what was happening. This kind of stunt is right up their alley & what they do.
  14. thats a car's amount for a bit of paint on the roof
  15. BTW, I just read somewhere that the wing on the SuperLeggera isn't a stock item, and that it costs 6K. Is this correct?
  16. I like that blue.
  17. It's better than any pos Ferrari.
  18. It's better to have a Ferrari than an audi with a bull at the front.
  19. FYI this makes you sound just as stupid as him.
  20. yes, because Ferrari dealers don't charge rediculously over sticker for of their cars regardless of what special stripes package is on it.
  21. That's simply false. Buy a new car as the first owner, and you're paying sticker.
  22. given that I've never seen a Ferrari dealer do something like this to a car I have seen them stick on 10k to 300k over sticker on new cars.
  23. OMG AUDI/LAMBO CONSPIRACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  24. Union Jack is the only flag that looks acceptable on cars, and that's pretty much only on the E-Type.
