U.S. dealers should begin receiving the first deliveries of the new 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 in late summer. The new model will be priced starting at $201,000, not including shipping and the federal gas-guzzler tax. The sticker represents a hefty bump from the $182,000 price tag on the base 2008 Gallardo. But the new LP560-4 has considerably more hardware and performance capability than its predecessor. The all-wheel-drive Gallardo LP560-4 boasts a new direct-injection 5.2-liter V10 that makes 552 horsepower (560 PS in the European system, which accounts for its new label). Lambo claims a 0-60-mph time of less than 3.7 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Incidentally, Americans may think the LP560-4 is a bargain, compared with what some of their European counterparts will have to pay. The new Gallardo arrives later this month in the U.K., where the base price, including delivery, is £147,330 — about $290,000 in U.S. dollars. What this means to you: More displacement, more power, more driven wheels. Let's put that price hike in proper perspective. .
