The Special Series Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore is Automobili Lamborghini’s tribute in order to celebrate the “150th Anniversario Unità d’Italia”: 1861-2011. With this special Tricolore version of Lamborghini’s most successful model a further impulse to the ‘Made in Italy’ label around the world has been given.

Thanks to the eminently powerful V10 driveline, controlled oversteer is no problem – naturally always to the extent defined by the driver – because refined road manners and perfectly tuned assistance systems mean that the Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore is an exceptionally safe sports car to drive.

The Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore is not only unique in terms of its technology: its design and equipment reinforce its exclusivity. and emphasises the unique Lamborghini design DNA. Its classic sporting character is emphasised by a colour strip in colours of the Italian flag running from the front panel over the roof and parts of the engine cover all the way to the rear spoiler. This colour treatment underscores the powerful elegance of the Gallardo.
