Back in 2005 we sold a Giallo Midas Gallardo SE to a local customer who has enjoyed it since then. I tried to coax him into trading several times since then but I couldn’t tempt him into anything until this … Continue reading →
I had been itching for an opportunity to take another road trip in the Lambo since my last one in the blue 04 Gallardo - http://edbolian.com/?p=1518 When we were told about the 2013 Lamborghini Esperienza event at Palm Beach International Raceway … Continue reading →
It was another very cold morning at Caffeine & Octane. The turnout was impressive, nonetheless, with some amazing cars there to represent Motorcars of Georgia and the Lamborghini brand. The entire Gallardo range was well represented with some gorgeous examples … Continue reading →
The Gallardo has been the most successful car ever for the Lamborghini brand. As we enter the final year of the great car, we can reflect back on its history and see how it has developed over the years. The car has been criticized at times for having too many special editions but, hey, we still don’t hold a candle to the 911s. There have been a lot of changes and special editions/option packages that have been released. This should help you get a better grasp of what the car has become over the 9 model years.
If you are in the market to buy a used Lamborghini, it will not take long to figure out that there are not many authorized Lamborghini dealerships in the US. Right now there are only 24. Each year we gain … Continue reading →

Sasha Baron Cohen has recently released his new movie, The Dictator and there is some great Lamborghini content. He arrived to the movie’s premier being towed in a booted LP570-4 Performante and the movie features a fleet of Murcielagos that are used in the movie. The color chosen for the Murcielagos is Blu Cepheus, a very rare color for the car (only 2 US cars were painted this color from the factory). Therefore, the cars were actually other colors and were wrapped in this color. Here is a picture of the Murcielagos.
Periodically we are given press cars to use for events, shows, and activities. Last year I had a 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera press car in gorgeous pearl yellow that I drove for about 6 months and 2,500 miles. It was a phenomenal car that has since been crashed unfortunately.
A few weeks ago, we received another press car. It is a 2011 LP570-4 Performante in Grigio Telesto. During the time that we have had it here, I have driven the car approximately 500 miles and enjoyed every second of it. We took it down to the 2012 AJC Atlanta International Auto Show, I drove it our on our Quarterly Mountain Drive, I took it to an event at Roche Bobois, and several other places.
To be honest, I am usually more of a coupe guy. I don’t fit well in the convertibles with the top up so I drove this car most of the time with the top down. I really enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to. The car impressed me in just about every situation imaginable.
The composure when driven hard was phenomenal, the stability at high speed was exceptional, and the ease of operation around town and in daily use was poised and polished. The Performante really demonstrates what awesome strides Lamborghini has been able to make in the Gallardo platform over the course of the last decade. Today we have a car that you can truly do anything that you want with. I will definitely miss it.
Here is a compilation of several articles that should be helpful for buyers searching for new or pre-owned Gallardos. The Gallardo was produced from 2003 until now and there are a wide variety of configurations to understand. Use these articles as a start and then feel free to contact me with any further questions. If you would like help locating a car, I can certainly help with that as well.
Here are some pictures of a beautiful 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Performante that we sold recently. It is gorgeous in Giallo Midas (3 layer pearl yellow). I have the say, the car is really gorgeous in this color. Brings back … Continue reading →
