Lamborghini, sometimes considered the more exotic of the two well-known Italian supercar manufacturers, has announced that it has built the 10,000th Gallardo. Says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini:
While it seems unlikely that Lamborghini will lose its reputation for building highly desirable exotic machinery any time soon, we do wonder what such large production numbers for the Gallardo might mean for the model's status as a collectible.The Lamborghini brand is extreme, uncompromising and Italian, and the Lamborghini Gallardo has played an exemplary role in defining and delivering our brand reputation into our worldwide markets. Today Lamborghini is represented in 45 countries by over 120 dealers, with the strength and presence of the Gallardo product playing a significant role in the growth and recognition of our brand.
Whatever the case, lucky number 10,000 is painted up in Midas Yellow and is headed for China.
