2011 Lamborghini Gallardo Bicolore LP550-2 and 2012 Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante – First Drive Review 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo Bicolore LP550-2 and 2012 Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante – First Drive Review
A couple of paint-and-tape jobs stretch the Gallardo lineup. In the seven years since our first Lamborghini Gallardo test, the factory has produced some 10,000 copies.
