Italian automobile maker, Lamborghini is assembling its 12000th Gallardo. The sports car, which was first manufactured in 2003, has four successful varients, including the LP 570-4 Superleggera, LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni, LP 560-4 and LP 560-4 Spyder.The newest Gallardo, the 560-4 coupe, is super fast, going from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds. All the Gallardos are fitted with a 5 liter V10 or a 5.2 liter V10 engine; and offer two transmissions- a conventional H box six speed manual transmission and an advanced electro hydraulically controlled semi-automatic one.

The production of the 12000th unit is definitely a milestone for a luxury car marquee; its Murcielago, introduced before the Gallardo, did not do so well. Its production stopped at 4,099 units. The company then replaced it with Aventador LP 700-4.
