Well after 16 months of research, phone calls, conversations, photographs, emails, forum posts, etc, etc., we finally have a definitive, confirmed summary of the 59 total US specification 6-speed manual LP Gallardos sold in the US. Thanks to all the forum members who contributed to this project by providing information, internet links, photographs and/or VINs (which will be kept confidential). Special acknowledgement must go to Tomaso, Alan Smithee and the staff at Automobili Lamborghini, without whose perseverance and determination this summary could not have been completed.

Hopefully this information will be useful to fellow manual enthusiasts in the future who are seeking a particular model and color combination. At the very least, it should help prevent them wasting time and effort trying to find a specific car that does not exist.

Kudos to you Old School you are The Master! Thank You for all your hard work, time, and effort you put into the project! Thank You for recognizing your assistants.
So that means only 1.09% out of 5,404 LP's are Manual Six Speed Cars! A very very rare club indeed!!!

> 1.09% out of 5,404

What makes you say 5404?

The Audi financial reports list these production numbers:

2008 997 (also: 790 pre-LP)
2009 922
2010 1064
2011 1264
2012 1221
2013 933
2014 0

Which comes to 6401 total.

Also, the table claiming 59 does say US spec -- which is
only what, about one third of the world-wide total?

(Fwiw, the Audi reports claim a total of 13992 Gallardos
made, whereas the press release for the last one stated
that it was 14022.)

Great work, Oldschool! Thank you very much for this awesome compilation! :)
So, maybe some 3% of US-spec LP cars are manual, but only because nearly half of that is from the 50th Anniversary 560-2s.
From last nights compilation of Gallardos on the market, the following are up for sale right now: 2012 yellow Performante (asking ~$250k), 2012 yellow 550-2 (asking ~$170k), and 1 or 2 white 50th Anniversary 560-2s (asking ~$180k & ~$205k)...

Can you post the links for the two yellow cars? I don't have a yellow Performante in the registry. Thanks.

Oldschool, might I suggest you repost this attachment on the ferrari-chat.com website under the lamborghini section?
I'm not a member of Ferrarichat so I really don't know how to post on that site. As you can see by the string of replies above, I also don't know how to include quotes from more than one post in a single reply. Can someone tell me how to do this? Thanks.

Would you mind if I posted it there?
