Celebrating their years of fruitful partnership, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. and Lamborghini Kuala have unveiled the Gallardo LP550-2 MLE (Malaysia Limited Edition).
Jointly developed with the company’s Malaysian importer, the US$540 000 special edition features a Superleggera 570-4 body kit that includes an aggressive front bumper, carbon fibre mirrors and a carbon fiber rear diffuser, as well as titanium exhaust tips and 19-inch wheels. Only twenty examples will be produced and will be available in three colors: Bianco Monocerus (solid white), Verde Ithaca (pearl green) and Arancio Borealis (pearl orange).
Despite the visual changes, both the 405 kW, 5.2-litre, V10 engine and E-gear transmission remain unchanged from the LP550-2, and the MLE also shares the LP550-2′s rear-wheel drive layout. As far as performance goes, the Gallardo Malaysia Edition will run from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 318 km/h.
The Gallardo MLE’s unique interior combines leather and Alcantara to meet customer requests for “a Gallardo that has the exciting exterior attributes of the Superleggera 570-4, but with the interior comforts of the standard Gallardo”, Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur chairman Chut Nyak Isham Nyak Ariff told The Star in Malaysia.
