The Lamborghini Gallardo was launched in 2003 (with production ending in 2013) and was the most successful model in the history of the company. With the help of parent company Audi, the Gallardo became the most usable and reliable model to ever leave the Sant'Agata factory - not to mention the most successful, with a total of 14,022 examples produced. Named after a famous breed of fighting bull, the V10-powered Gallardo was Lamborghini's stable-mate to a succession of V12 flagship models. It was a landmark model too, the first genuinely all-new car to be made by Sant'Agata under Audi ownership and also marked a return for the firm to making a more affordable, usable super sports car, something it hadn't done since the Jalpa went out of production in 1988.

The Gallardo has a light but stiff aluminium spaceframe, aluminium panels and a mid-mounted 5.0-litre V10 powering all four wheels on demand through a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed E-gear paddle-shift auto. In 2007 at the Geneva Motor Show Lamborghini unveiled a lightened and more powerful version of the model named the Gallardo Superleggera. With the use of carbon fibre, 100kg was saved and an improved intake, exhaust an ECU meant total power output was increased to 530 bhp. The 6-speed E-Gear transmission was standard with 6-speed manual transmissions also being offered at no extra cost. In total, only 618 Superleggera models were produced making them rare and desirable.

Offered here is a left-hand drive 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera E-Gear delivered new through Lamborghini Main Dealer, Al Jaziri Motors of Dubai, U.A.E. Finished in Metallic Yellow Giallo Midas with a black Alcantara interior with yellow stitching, the car was also fitted with a reverse camera and lift gear. As a Superleggera, it's fitted with a carbon spoiler, side skirts, diffuser, wing mirrors, door cards, centre console, steering wheel bottom, and bucket seats.

Maintenance carried out whilst in Dubai was always undertaken at a Lamborghini Main dealer, including the clutch which was replaced when the car had covered 26,000 km. Since arriving in the U.K and being registered with the DVLA to obtain its first UK V5c, it was serviced in October '18 at which point it had reached 34,146km, equivalent to 21,200 miles.

Now showing 34,700 km and supplied with both sets of keys, its Lamborghini book pack, a UK V5c, and its service history including some invoices, this rare Gallardo is in fine condition and is now ready to find a new home.
