This Lamborghini Gallardo proves that stereotypes should be left in the dirt.
Rally-spec supercars are nothing new to the motoring world with the likes of Porsche, Ferrari and even McLaren converting their top-tier performance models into dirt-loving rally cars. What we don't see too often is aftermarket conversions being done to exotics such as this 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo which looks like something out of a Mad Max movie, and the best news is that it's up for sale.
The Netherlands-based exotic sportscar dealer Classic Youngtimers Consultancy recently listed the Gallardo for sale and it has since created quite a stir. It is clear that the exterior of the Italian supercar has received extensive modifications, the most notable being the lifted ride height which now houses some serious looking off-road tires. The matte gray paint job and extended black wheel-fenders add to the sinister appeal, but it's the small touches that make this Lamborghini look like a believable attempt at building a rally-car: a rear-mounted spare wheel, roof rack, LED light bar and front fog lights look the business.
This wild creation has been listed for sale in the Netherlands, and information on it is sparse, but the undercarriage looks to be standard, and a simple spacer system has been used to lift the ride height. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of the engine bay, which leaves so much to speculation, but even in stock form, the Gallardo's 5.0-liter V10 engine, producing around 490 horsepower should suffice off road, as should the standard semi-automatic transmission.
Classic Youngtimes Consultancy has listed this unique creation for €115,000 which is around $126,000; more than what a standard 2004 Gallardo would go for, but we're talking about two wildly different cars here. The unique appeal and head-turning ability alone should justify its asking price. If touching 200 mph and conquering curbstones is your thing, then look no further.
