The Lamborghini Gallardo debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003, after Volkswagen Group's Audi bought the Italian automaker.

With a V10 engine, all-wheel drive and relatively high production numbers for a Lamborghini (about 2,000 per year), it easily became the the company's best-selling car.

Ten years later, Gallardo production has ended to make way for a new super sportscar widely referred to as the Cabrera.

The last Gallardo to roll off the assembly line was a LP 570-4 Spyder Performante in Rosso Mars (Mars Red). It's No. 14,022 and will be going to a private collector.

In the first four decades of Lamborghini's existence, before the Gallardo was released the year of the company's 40th anniversary, an average 250 cars were built per year.

The Gallardo was continually improved over the years, resulting in ever higher horsepower, direct-injected engines, rear-wheel-drive models and the open-top Spyder, such as the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder we tested in 2012.
