Two weeks ago reports began to surface that Lamborghini could be preparing to launch a new two-tone Bicolore edition of the Gallardo at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. But since the pace of the automotive industry is unrelenting, this week's reports indicate that a Tricolore edition could be in the works, too.

So... a two-tone special followed by a three-tone one? We must have lost something in the translation here. And we almost did. Word has it that the second special-edition Gallardo will not be a three-tone model, but a Tricolore in the sense of the Italian flag. The country, you see, is preparing to celebrate 150 years of unification, a national milestone which Lamborghini very well might celebrate with a commemorative patriotic edition featuring the red, white and green.

Then again, it could just be a three-tone paint job. We'll have to wait and see, with sources tipping the Tricolore edition's launch to take place in Geneva in March.

      So will the stripes be red-white-green because most will only be able to see the car from the rear while driving?

      If I had a dollar for every snide comment made about the number of special edition Lambos I'd be able to afford every Lambo ever released (including the tractors).

      technically wouldn't this be a 4 tone paint job?

      Great, if The Situation didn't have enough ways to blow his cash.

      Am I the only reader who finds posts on 2 or 3 color paint jobs on Italian cars boring?
      I mean, we're living at an exciting time in automotive history, so much rapid change, so much new technology.
      But multi-color paint jobs?

        We are also living in a time of easily disseminated information.

        It's so easy to do a post on a blog that you may as well post on every trim package and recall that is out there. Your readers are always free to skip posts that do not interest them.
