The Gallardo was the best selling Lamborghini in history and, between 2003 and 2012 it was sold in more than 13.000 units. In 2012, toward the end of its career, the Italian car-manufacturer unveiled the “Edizione Technica”.
Lamborghini succeeded to take more money from its customers with special editions along the production time of the Gallardo. Either it was the Superleggera, the Valentino Balboni, Bicolore, or Gold Edition, it found a way to make new special models of, basically, the same car, with rear or all-wheel-drive. Some of the special models had nothing important to offer, other than a two-paint job or special paint and some decals on the outside. The Superleggera was lighter and offered better performances with a sacrifice for the occupant's comfort. And then it was the “Edizione Technica” (Technical Edition) 570-4.
Every special edition of a Lamborghini had to show that on the outside and that was the same with the Edizione Technica. It featured a fixed-wing in the back and special colors on the outside. There were three exclusive optional color combinations, with the roof and the front air intakes painted in a contrast color to the rest of the car.
For the technical point of view, the car was featured carbo-ceramic brakes, which combine low weight and better fade resistance than the regular, steel-brakes.
