Lamborghini has reportedly announced that they’ll be releasing a new special edition Gallardo specifically for the Chinese market. Called the LP550-2 GZ8 Edizione, this special edition Gallardo will be reproduced only eight times.
The “GZ” in the name stands for the city of Guangzhou, and the number “8” is considered a lucky number in China.
Essentially, this Gallardo is a standard LP550-2 Balboni with some unique badging and visual upgrades to better fit the culture of China. That means a 5.2L V10 good for 542hp, sending power to just the rear wheels.
The upgrades however include an enlarged carbon fiber wing with orange trim, orange alloys, and vinyl striping. Also included is a carbon fiber engine fiber and side skirts.
