Lamborghini celebrates the production of 12,000th Gallardo

First launched in 2003, the Gallardo remains an object of desire for supercar fans the world over, and Lamborghini recently marked the production of the 12,000th Gallardo model with a post on Twitter.

Even though it might not seem much for carmakers like Ford, Volkswagen, Chevrolet or BMW, it took Lamborghini 10 years to reach this result and the explanation is quite simple: all cars built by Lamborghini are manually assembled at the company’s plant in Sant’Agata and the Gallardo has received a lot of special editions throughout its life, which meant small pauses in the production process had to be made.

Through the years, various variants of the car have been offered, most notably the LP560-4 facelift which came in 2008 and since then it seems as though dozens of special edition have been created, even though the real number is around the 10 figure mark. Nevertheless, building 12,000 examples of any high-end automobile is impressive so Lamborghini truly does have reason to celebrate.
