Love the shade and as far as I know, its a first in India. Those rims are sweet and remind me of the noctis gallardo up north.

Any idea what the spec of the gallardo is?

This post would have been here long back, but, thanks to my amateur status on TBHP, its here long after it was supposed to.

My neighbour just bought this awesome Merc C63 AMG as a used car for a lotta money. Posting the pics below.

Sorry about the poor quality pics. Were taken at night with phone camera.

I wasn't able to click a proper pic since it was night. A couple of days later, when I asked him if I could take some proper pics, he laughed saying he already sold it!

Because, apparently it had way more power than what he could manage. A very sad news. I was kinda falling in love wid the awesome exhaust roar and then I hear this! :(

And what music the exhaust played! I requested him to floor the throttle the night he bought the car. He hardly gave it a push and tat was more than enough to literally shake the ground around the car! Missing it now.

I don't think it's a limited edition color as I've seen a couple of cars in this shade few years back in the states .

That is Rosso Mars what you've most probably seen, the color that came on the SuperTrofeo Stradale.

And wont be suprised if I saw more in the same shade coz with Lambo's Ad Personam, one can go any extent with customization.

But this still remains a special edition car.

Rosso Letto isn't a special ed color per se, just that only one of it on a Gallardo will make it to India.

Rosso Letto and the very similar Rosso Efesto is quite common abroad.

Well, what I said above was told to me by an Lambo official. I posted what I was told.

I'm sure it was Rosso Leto which I saw.
Anyways as Scorcher pointed out it's the only one to make it to India.
Cheers.

Our thread is undergoing a period of prolonged silence.

never lose a chance to shoot a photograph of any supercar you chance upon our roads.

spotted a brown R8 this afternoon but a slow citizen in his Vento denied a good photograph
