Over £140,000, over 200 mph, over 550bhp. New Lamborghini LP560-4 has been priced for the United Kingdom market.

In the United Kingdom, the price has been set for the new Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe LP560-4. And the price stretches almost as long as the name you’ve just read. Set at £147,330.00 on the road including a NavTrak road nanny system and delivery package, the LP560-4 was never going to compare to a Cobalt on price, but then again, neither does it compare in performance.

You see LP560-4 if you haven’t been paying enough attention, is shacked up with a 5.2-litre V10 engine persuaded by those with a superior pair of engineering skills to produce 560 bhp (hence the name). It is said, with slight consideration for the law, that it will run down the M25 at a top speed of over 200mph. Jokes aside, the car really will do 200mph, but maybe in the Nevada desert or some other desolate place with no badged fashion photographers.

“The new Gallardo Coupé 560/4 is a significantly enhanced version of what was already an extreme car,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini SpA. “With an even more sharply defined character, the new Gallardo LP560-4 is also innately elegant and sensitive: the uncompromised expression of an uncompromised lifestyle.”

Go to your nearest Lambo spot towards the end of June where you can place an order for a few days’ time delivery (if you are lucky). The spots are in Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and London.
