Lamborghini’s upcoming vehicle Gallardo Tricolore, which is supposed have an official unveiling on the 16th of this month, has got leaked via the internet. The vehicle has been built as part of the celebration to commemorate the anniversary of the unification of Italy passing through its 150th year.

The special model, as seen in the picture, features a white exterior with carbon fiber mirrors. As you have noticed, a tricolor strip runs the entire length of the body of the car including the driver’s seat. The tricolor strip denotes the colors of the Italian national flag.

We do not have much  details regarding the price and availability of the vehicle right now. Also unknown are the details of the power source the vehicle features. However, we get to know that the production will be limited to a number of 150 units.

Lamborghini Gallardo Tricolore Defines Good Taste 10

When Italian supercar builders release a special edition version of their product, “tasteful” isn’t usually the first word that comes to my mind. Most have garish paint schemes and vinyl decals that look like they were razor cut by a baboon. Wearing a blindfold. Worse, most have giant wings and more carbon fiber than an F1 starting grid. That’s why Lamborghini’s Gallardo Tricolore, built to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Italian reunification, is so stunning. If anything, it’s even more subdued than a regular Gallardo, with the single distinguishing feature being the Italian flag stripe that runs down the car and through the interior. It’s definitely a case of “less is more” when it comes to style.

There’s no further details about the Gallardo Tricolore available just yet, so I can’t tell you haw many will be built, what they’ll cost or even if they’ll be sold outside of the EU. We also don’t know if this special edition gets more horsepower or whether it will come in AWD, RWD or both. Lamborghini will officially roll the car out in Turin next week, so we’ll give you an update (and more pictures) then.
