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 →

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.
Well it wasn’t really mine but I did enjoy this car for quite a while. We had this car out of Lamborghinis press fleet for about 6 months and I drove it around 2,500 miles. It was one of the 5 2010 LP570-4 Superleggera press cars. I took it on 3 mountain runs, to Caffeine & Octane several times, and had an absolute blast in the car. It now has a salvage title and is for sale out in California. Here is a link to the auction.
Hey guys, we just got an absolutely insane new Gallardo in. This one is certainly not for the faint of heart or anyone looking to roll through town and be subtle. It is a Superleggera in Verde Ithaca. The car … Continue reading →
It should probably be clarified that despite some rumors and very understandable perceptions, I never owned this car.
In 2010 Lamborghini made five Superleggera press cars for the North American market. Their first appearance was at the dealer launch for the car that I attended in Las Vegas in April. The production Superleggeras were 2011′s but they didn’t have 2011 VIN’s available when these were produced. There were 2 white ones, 2 yellow ones, and 1 black one.
In October of 2010 we received on the yellow ones for an event. It ended staying here for a while. It left for a few days once to go to Roebling for a magazine test but most of the time the key stayed in my right front pocket!
The new Superleggera is probably the most capable car that I have ever driven. It has plenty of power, great torque, unbelievable grip, great sound, menacing looks, and is all around an awesome car to be in. Even at 6’5″ I can make the interior work.
I drove the car nearly 2,500 miles during the time that we had it. I went to car shows, did 2 mountain drives, drove it for errands, took countless customers on test drives, and generally experienced the car in just about every setting imaginable.
Needless to say, I fell in love. I miss that car terribly. It has since been sold as a used car to a very lucky owner.
