Lamborghini’s 2010: a TopGear.com tribute
Three lightweight models in 12 months and a big fat goodbye for the heavyweight supercar champ... Sant’Agata has had a good year
Posted: 19 Nov 2010
Late last month, we waved a mournful goodbye to a supercar heavyweight: Murcielago number 4,099 rolled off the production line. Supercar fans across the globe garlanded their SV posters and doffed their novelty bull hats.
But with this sodden lump of sorrow has come fresh hope and a carbon-fibre horizon. At Geneva, Lamborghini launched the Gallardo Superleggera. At Paris, it showcased the astonishing Sesto Elemento, and in Los Angeles the company revealed the Gallardo Spyder Performante. All three of them lightweight; like fat-free tender-loin steak.
Journey with us as we brim our cups with super unleaded and toast a most awesome year for the muscular superbrand...
