Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2: New entry model will be rear-wheel drive!

Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2

Great news for all US-based Lamborghini fans: Lamborghini will be offering a new entry-level Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 with rear-wheel drive for $193,895.

Lamborghini has confirmed to us that the U.S. Gallardo lineup is growing. In addition to the LP550-2 Bicolore we told you about earlier in the week, Lambo is now offering standard, single-color, rear-wheel-drive LP550-2 coupes, with a choice of either the six-speed manual or e-gear transmission.

2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino BalboniLast year’s limited-edition LP550-2 Valentino Balboni sold out quickly, and the Bicolore is only available with the automatic e-gear transmission and in five different color combos, so the new LP550-2 model will complement the LP560-4 coupe and become the brand’s price leader. This new “base” Gallardo, with a stick and rear drive, is priced at $193,895, while the LP550-2 with e-gear is $202,995.
