Lamborghini Press release


Limited Special Edition: Lamborghini Gallardo SE

250 vehicles in an exclusive two-tone exterior design

Improved acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds and improved top speed (315km/h)


The Italian sportscar manufacturer presents a limited special edition of its successful sportscar: the Lamborghini Gallardo SE.

The Lamborghini Gallardo SE (Special Edition) which is limited to 250 units is characterized by a two-tone body paint, an even more sporty interior and technical improvement.
The basis for the Special Edition is the extreme, uncompromising and unsurpassed Lamborghini Gallardo.

The Lamborghini Gallardo SE is equipped with a permanent 4WD, 6 speed gearbox, aluminum space frame, ESP and ASR, ABS, ABD, air conditioning, as well as two front and two side airbags.

The color range consists of six alternatives: two grey shades as well as white (Balloon white), yellow (Giallo Midas), Orange (Arancio Borealis) and green (Verde Ithaca). The roof, the engine bonnet, the front and rear spoiler as well as the two side mirrors are painted in black (Nero Noctis) making them stand out against the body color. The rear lights are slightly tinted. The newly designed “Callisto” rims give an extra touch to the overall appearance which is complemented by the colored brake calipers (available in grey or yellow).

The interior design sets forth the two-tone concept by having all piping and stitching matching the exterior body color of the car. The Lamborghini shield is embossed on the headrest of the driver and passenger seat. The Lamborghini script is preciously inserted into the dashboard. The carpets are black having the borders again matching the exterior body color of the car. Needless to say that the entire interior is handcrafted in leather partially perforated and of supreme quality.
The interior design underlines the new, more aggressive personality of this Special Edition. Exclusively for the Lamborghini Gallardo SE: an additional shield with the embossed vehicle identification number.



The limited Special Edition is richly equipped with standard features such as a rear view camera, which in combination with the build in multimedia screen facilitates parking. The sports suspensions with the sports steering wheel and in combination with the P Zero Corsa tire (specifically developed by Pirelli for more ambitious driving) are all standard features on the Special Edition. The long list of standard equipment comprises also an exclusive car cover.
Upon request a vast range of additional equipment is available. A customer can choose additionally the robotized gearbox e.gear, as well as a navigation system (depending on the country), heated side mirrors, fully electrical and heated seats. A winter package (heated seats, side mirrors, heated wash jets, rubber floor mats, 12 Volt outlet), and a lifting system are also available. Standard tires instead of sports tires can be ordered without surcharge.

The Gallardo SE benefits from several technical modifications:
The gearbox is now equipped with shorter gear ratios in the first five gears, enhancing the dynamic performance of the vehicle. The result is also shown in the acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds which improved by 0.2 seconds, achieving a top speed of 315 km/h versus 309 km/h previously. This is shown impressively on an e.gear equipped car with a feature called “thrust mode”, optimizing acceleration and gear change from a standing start throughout all gears.
The more direct and precise steering are additional modifications carried out to improve even more the superb handling of the vehicle.

The Gallardo SE will be available from September onwards.

So what happened to the Piton name? Will it still be used anywhere on this car?

Oh no, I'm sick with MADNESS over this new SE! Should I wait for the 07 model years supposed 550 hp? This piton is BADASS! I lost my old G-car...or should I wait for a murci GT(Not to mention the Diablo GT-R)? I'm not that wealthy, but, I can rationalize a Piton...If I could get into the Gumball3000 Korea with it...They say the steering is improved, not that I had an idea in hell of how to control it before but...Also, any1 know what it looks like w/ a regular engine bonnet?

Didn't the Gallardo have 493 originally? wouldn' that make it more like 513? or was there a 27 hp increase? Will the 07's have more? 196 is nice, and the SE is ****ing kick ass, but it's not blowing the F430 away,unless the top end acceleration kicks it's it's ass. Someone out here has gotta know, I'm getting closer to picking another one up so...

Piton in the Flesh

Saw the actual car today that will be shown at the Concorso -- the pictures do not do it justice -- it is awesome and slightly different in appearances from the previous pictures with awesome wheels and a truly aggressive look!

They truely could have done a better job of integrating the rear view camera into the rear bodywork. I don't like the "malformed wart" look. :(

It's really more of a paint scheme, than an upgrade. :)

Sorry, I am not impressed. I don't think Lamborghini is going to sell units because of this "Piton". I think they are just converting buyers from Gallardo.

This one is not exciting me. Anyone agree, disagree?
