As you must have guessed from some of our previous stories on used cars, we simply love the magic of depreciation. Expensive cars lose their value like there’s no tomorrow, which means they shed a good chunk of their value as soon as they are driven out of the showroom. You can find a Lamborghini going for one-fourth, or even one-fifth, of its initial price. Of course, these exotics aren’t too easy to maintain but everyone deserves a chance to own a Lamborghini at least once in their lifetime. So, we searched online and after hours of scanning the used car classifieds, managed to find the most affordable Lamborghini in India!
Our search involved scanning used car portals like Droom, Quikr, Olx, etc. We also had a look at the inventory at Big Boyz Toyz, the famous used supercar dealer. Also, we got in touch with some private used car retailers we know of.
Finally, after collecting data from all the aforementioned sources, we came across this 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Coupe that’s listed on Droom. Asking price? Merely Rs 75 lakh. The car has run only 8,500 kms but is being sold by its third owner. It’s pretty common to see supercar owners selling off their car in order to upgrade to a newer model. The Gallardo was replaced with the Huracan in 2014 and, hence, many owners sold off their sparingly used supercars to upgrade to the newer model. This has further led to a higher depreciation and you can benefit from it by buying this Gallardo at an almost throwaway price.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 is powered by a 5.2-litre, V10 petrol engine that outputs 560 PS of maximum power and 540 Nm of peak torque. This car can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.6 seconds and go on to hit a top speed of 325 kmph. The Gallardo has been among the most successful models from the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based car marque. So, basically, buying the used Gallardo listed on Droom can give you a lot of bragging rights and true-blue supercar performance for roughly one-fifth of what you would need to buy a new supercar of similar calibre.
However, owning a thoroughbred supercar from an exquisite supercar marque isn’t a totally hassle-free experience. While this car now costs only a fraction of what it did when new, maintaining one isn’t cheap. Even if your car is barely used, you’ll still have to sell a kidney and half your liver to keep it running. You can easily buy a diesel compact sedan for the price of a clutch replacement!
A set of tyres will cost you at least Rs 6 lakh. Hence, be really sure before you decide to spend those hard-earned Rs. 75 lakh on this Gallardo. We don’t want anyone of you spending his or her retirement fund on a used Lamborghini.
