2011 Lamborghini LP570-4 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Lamborghini has finally bitten the bullet and started a leasing program for the Gallardo. According to the DuPont Registry, there was enough demand for an alternative ownership program that leasing Lamborghini's smallest offering made sense.

Gallardos eligible for lease include the 2010-2011 LP560-4 Spyders, 2011 Gallardo LP560-4 Coupe, 2011 LP570-4 Superleggera, and the brand-new LP550-2. The leases are on a 27-month term, and customers are limited to 3,500 miles a year. The program began in January and stops at the end of this month, so you'd better hurry.

      You know, leasing a car like this makes a lot more sense than buying it.

      For one, NOBODY is putting a ton of miles on these cars. For another, the cost of ownership is completely insane--forget tires and gas, the maintenance on these cars will KILL you. And third--most people buy these things as a fashion statement or status symbol, and sell them when they go out of style (ie--when the new one comes along) so they don't own them for very long anyway. Leasing makes sense.

        Actually my Gallardo owning friends report very low running costs for an exotic. It's a remarkably unfussy car to own. Tires and gas are the primary (and logical) consumables. Since the V10 in the G is loosely based on the Audi V8, it runs a timing chain, eliminating costly timing belt services. For the record, the Ferrari F430 and later cars (including Maseratis) also use use a timing chain. It's still not exactly cheap to change the oil once a year, but in light of old exotic car service schedules and overall vehicle costs, it's trifling.

      I would put 7K miles on it the first two months and then trade in the LP-560 4 coupe for the LP560 spyder... keep that for two months putting on the 7K miles...Then I would end my 6 month Bull Run with the LP570-4 Superleggera...

      After that I would buy a 2003 Toyota Prius and work another 15 years to replenish my IRA

      I don't think that deal is so good if the previous commenter was correct. Think about it this way you lease a car which is about $200k and pay out $127k. You could have paid 80k more and the car is worth more than 80k after 27 months and 7000 miles. I would happily buy a 27 month old gallardo with 7k miles for 80k!

      Just think of all the high rpm shifts in the allotted distance.From 0 miles to 3500 when its being broken in. Wouldn't want one of these off lease.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Many of you guys dont get it quite a bit.

      Anybody who leases a gallardo will have pretty much 2 more cars to take care of the usual business. And 3500 miles for a toy car is a lot.

      Nothing to brag, but I have a GTO (4k miles a yr) , a Mercedes E550 (10k miles/yr) a Mercedes CLK 350 (3k miles/ yr) and a 600RR (2k miles/ yr).

      I dont see any issues with a Gallardo having a 3500 miles a yr limit.
        • 3 Years Ago
        I would be surprised if people were putting more miles that 3500 on it as well. It just doesn't seem like the kind of car people would be pushing a whole lot.

      Brilliant, most of my second cars only get driven about 3,000 miles a year like many in the states. Becuase of my daily driver, motorcycle, family, work and life thats all I have time for. I would EASILY do this next time rather than lose as much as I do now.

      Leasing a garage queen? No thanks.
        • 3 Years Ago
        @Se30, which makes atleast 85% of us. How many people do you think can afford to lease a car for less than 3 years for a price of buying a brand new car?! If you can't afford buying this car, I suggest you save money on the new GTR. It won't be as flashy as Gollardo, but faster and at your finger tips.
        • 3 Years Ago
        That's cause you can't afford it.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Garage queens, woohoo...I guess. 3,500 miles is silly but I guess I'm not in the market for one of these either so doesn't apply to me. I think I'd put about 500 miles on it easy the first weekend of having it.
      • 3 Years Ago
      what are the terms of this lease?
        • 3 Years Ago
        For the LP550-2 Coupe its $28,256.78 Down, $2372 per month.

        For the LP560-4 Spyder its $35,391.56 Down, $3381 per month.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yeah- whats the residual and money factor on that bad-boy?
        • 3 Years Ago
        @Neil41487

        thanks for that.....I remember being at the dealership last month and seeing those exact numbers in the windshield of the Lambos and wondered what they were. Thats not a bad leasing program and if i had money I'd do it.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. This article seemed fairly useless without that information.

        In other news, americans are in debt up to their eyeballs, and the grass is still green.

      Lets see:

      My local track is around 3 miles long. So I can do about 1166 laps and trailer it home!
      • 3 Years Ago
      Finally. Now I can afford to get three of these instead of two! Now, excuse me while I go melt gold into toothpicks to pick the upper crust from my diamond covered teeth.
        • 3 Years Ago
        no..not grumpy it just wasn't funny.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I know those cars arent meant to be driven daily and all, but only 3,500 miles a year allowance?! Cmon. Thats like owning a greyhound and putting it on a 15' leash. I could easily see myself putting 3,500 miles on that beast in less than a month if. Id never want to get out of it!!!!
        • 3 Years Ago
        I hear they make you pay all the materials and production costs for a vw golf for every mile you go over.
        • 3 Years Ago
        You guys are forgetting how few miles the average supercar owner puts down in a given year. Remember, these are $300,000 cars and in two years time they'll be worth $180-200,000 tops, so the lease payment is going to be stupid high, and the mileage limit is to prevent the leasee from de-valuing the car too much.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yeah I agree that's beyond stupid to have that limit. 5k and I wouldn't be as pissed. Guess that means you can drive it to the track and back. I bet the penalty for going over the allotted 3500 is insane too
