These Asia-only models showcase Lamborghini’s love for the emerging Far East auto market.
Lamborghini has recently begun showing some major love to the Far East in the form of Asia-only models. These special-edition Lamborghinis are some of the rarest around, with production set no higher than 20 models. As the economies of Asian countries continue to become stronger and stronger, look for Italian automaker (as well as other premium brands) to unveil more country-specific supercars. For now, you can check out some of the Raging Bull's current Asia-only offerings below.
It should come as no surprise that this Gold Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 was built specifically for China's richest residents. Lamborghini didn't do anything to the Gallardo's engine, but it did slap on some fresh gold metallic paint, some red stitching in the interior, new alloys and a new engine cover. Only 10 were made, with each one priced around $800,000.
Lamborghini celebrated its 10th anniversary in Singapore by creating a (shock) special-edition Gallardo. The Singapore Gallardo came in either white or black, and featured a pair of racing stripes and the Merlion badge, the Merlion being a lion-headed-fish designed by the Singapore Tourism Board in 1964. Like the Gold Gallardo, only 10 of these were made.
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition is the most ridiculously named car on this list. In addition to its long name, the car's racing stripe is meant to symbolize an erupting volcano. Right...at least it has 670 horsepower and is all-wheel-drive.
The Raging Bull created a unique Lamborghini Gallardo strictly for Malaysian consumers. This supercar has the body of a Gallardo 570-4 Superleggera and the engine of a Gallardo LP550-2. Other awesome features include carbon fiber side skirts, a rear diffuser and titanium exhaust tips. Only 20 were made, with each one going for around $554,000.
Hong Kong has received its own special-edition Gallardo LP550-2. The HK20 (Hong Kong 20th Anniversary) has a Bianco Monocerus white paint job along with a gold racing stripe and matching gold wheels. The engine has been left untouched, but the interior has been given a makeover, with Q-citura and Alcantara trim on the seats, center console and dashboard. Only 8 units will be made, with each one priced at $475,000.
