According Italy is celebrating 150 years since its unification, the super car maker will build a special edition of the Gallardo called the Tricolore
The name “Tricolore” is symbol of the Italian flag, which decorates the car in the form of a three-colored stripe that stretches across the hood, the driver’s seat and the roof in a way that reminds of the LP550-2 Valentino Balboni edition. Other than the green, white and red stripe, the Gallardo Tricolore also sports carbon-fiber mirror caps and a white paint.
