Of course you want it. Fortunately it's for sale.
Chances are you’ve seen this particular Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera before (). It’s not a stock 2008 Gallardo Superleggera and that’s just fine. Thanks to , it’s been upgraded to 1,800 hp, and it’s for sale for right now with an asking price of $229,995. Like the title clearly states, that’s Bugatti power for Porsche 911 Turbo money. Oh, and it has a six-speed manual. The performance upgrades come courtesy of a Race Spec 2 twin-turbo system bolted to the 5.0-liter V10.
Essentially, the entire guts of the Gallardo have been thoroughly reworked and upgraded. Aside from the custom one-off Elite Camo wrap job, the Gallardo came from the Lamborghini in Arancio Borealis (orange) over Nero Alcantara. , based in Dallas, Texas (where else?) claims this is the fastest twin turbo Gallardo in existence. We believe them. The gearing, for example, was originally setup for the Texas mile/standing mile (meaning for over 280 mph) but it’s since received a shorter gear set to make it easier for regular driving (it’s still geared for 240 mph, fortunately).
The V10, interestingly, is actually a brand new factory unit recently purchased and installed, meaning it’s only been driven 5,000 miles. More than $375,000 in upgrades has reportedly been invested here, and yet it can all be yours for $230k. That’s a bargain that’ll allow you to confidently challenge Chiron and 911 Turbo S owners.
