The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 is the last version before the long awaited successor.

The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 is the last version before the long awaited successor.

When Lamborghini unveiled in September a modest facelift for its Gallardo they didn't say that it will be the last one. Now we know for sure that a new bull is almost ready to break cover and we will probably see it sometime next year.

The last hurrah of the Gallardo has the same V10 5.2-liter engine producing 560 HP (412 kW) and 397 lb-ft (540 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a 6-speed e-gear with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

It comes with restyled 19-inch alloy wheels and is available with an optional Style package that includes high-gloss black paint on the front spoiler and grilles. The final facelift has a slightly different front bumper with triangular shapes while at the back it has received a new engine vent.

In regards to its anticipated successor, this will feature a naturally-aspirated engine without hybrid tech and will be available without a manual transmission. At first, it will be sold exclusively with an AWD system but "sometime in the future" it could get a RWD variant.
