Lamborghini has revealed the 2013 Gallardo and Edizione Tecnica package at Paris 2012 as a stop-gap before the new Gallardo in 2014.
What the 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo is is a fill-in between the current Gallardo and an all new model in 2014. So, a bit of a facelift to the range, some new colours and a sexy-sounding Italian add-on – the Edizione Tecnica package – are the order of the day.
Out goes the LP570-4 Trofeo Stradale, the 2WD LP550-2 Coupe and Spyder stay much the same as do the LP670-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante, but the LP560-4 Coupe and Spyder get to look a bit more butch and get some barking alloys.
On the ‘special’ side of the Gallardo we get the Edizione Tecnica package which offer E-Gear, ride height lift for getting over speed bimps, a big back wing and ceramic brakes. Offered in three exclusive colours - Nero Nemesis/Arancio Argos, Arancio Argos/Nero Nemesis and Bianco Canopus/Arancio Argos – and is offered on the Superleggera and Spyder Performante.
As well as the 2013 Gallardo, Lamborghini has had a fiddle with the Aventador and added stop-start, cylinder deactivation, carbon pack option and new alloys.
Not quite the ‘New’ Lamborghini we were hoping for.
