Lamborghini Releases 2012 Pricing: No, You Still Can’t Afford One

By Blake Z. Rong | September 23, 2011
Lamborghini has released prices for its 2012 range, and if you have to ask…the answer is still no. Go back to bed. Starting with the “entry-level” model, the Gallardo LP550-2 coupe can be driven off the lot for the low, low price of $187,900. After this, it’s a dizzying array of Gallardos, alphanumerals, and fragments of Italian that won’t even impress your neighbors. If you want two-tone paint on your Gallardo, the LP 550-2 Bicolore starts at $191,900 with the e-gear automatic transmission only. The all-wheel-drive LP 560-4 is $202,000, and the e-gear is a whopping $10,000 on top of that. The track-ready LP 570-4 Superleggera is $237,600, but there’s no extra cost for the automatic. The LP 560-4 Spyder is $225,400, while the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is $248,000. At this rate, Lamborghini will bloat upwards like Porsche’s model range—don’t say the Germans haven’t had any influence.
All Lamborghinis listed come with a $2,995 destination charge, and a gas-guzzler tax of $3,000, or $2,100 for the six-speed manual or the e-gear automatic, respectively. And if you want the Aventador LP 700-4? It’s yours for $393,695 and the cost of a couple of organs. (Who needs a gallbladder, anyway?) We may never be able to get E-Z credit for one—but as Oscar Wilde once said, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” Source: DuPont Registry
