Throughout the history of Lamborghini, no model has been more successful than the Gallardo, selling over 13,000 units since it was first released to the public back in 2003. The super car has gone through a number of generations and redesigns and before the next major update the automaker has decided to refresh the current-generation car and showcase it at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The new car features new looks with different colored bodywork, forged wheels, and updated LED lighting along with the same powerful engine and transmission as used in pre-updated models.
