Yes, I know there were 14,200 made but let me tell you MY purchase story about 10 years ago (in $Aud).
I was looking for a Ferrari 360 spider and in a car yard I saw a Gallardo and instantly my wife said "gee I like that" and I said "yes, it's a Lamborghini Gallardo but we couldn't afford one of those". Well, the 360 was about $130K and the Gallardo was $150k. Guess which one I bought? Think of it this way: Which has more cache:
1. I own a Lamborghini Gallardo
2. I own a Ferrari 360
3. I own a Porsche 997
4. I own a McLaren MP12C

I honestly think that when you are looking at the BOTTOM of this lot (remember $130k was my TOP price, originally), then how can you go past the V10? Now that Lambo has stopping V10's?
Do any of the above 3 look better? Sound better (with the right exhaust, decatted? Cost less to own/run? Are more reliable (after 1st clutch changed in Gallardo)? Have more prestige?

So what I'm saying is this, when compared it's near cost competitors (don't even think EV's!), I think it will go up in price (especially gated) and will always be a crowd favorite - IN THAT PRICE RANGE. Just my 2 cents.

PS When I bought my AV, I kept on 04 Gallardo (as an investment, I doubt it will go down) and is still a great driving car!

yes, I could see this coming 5 years ago when I seriously wanted a Gallardo coupe- cheap as possible grey import.
Well, financially it wasnt the best time,so last week I bought a 2006 Gallardo SE - only 1 of 6 that were sold new in Australia at the time in 2007 I believe. Mine has 20,000 miles (34,000 km) & I love it. what a machine these cars are.
Way better than a 360 that for sure

Good for you! You have to get a good one while you can. The window is closing.

There is just something about Lamboghini that is more sexy, more exotic and more exciting than the other brands. My first Lamborghini was my 2008 Gallardo Spyder, what a gem, wish I kept it.
