At $79,000, This Is the Cheapest Lamborghini on Autotrader

If you’ve ever searched for a used Lamborghini Gallardo, you know that prices dropped fairly consistently after the car first came out — right up until it cost $100,000. Ever since used Gallardo models hit $100,000, prices have stayed roughly the same, with few even crossing below the $90,000 threshold.

But this one is much cheaper than that.

Offered by a private seller in Orem, Utah, this Gallardo comes from 2004, the car’s first model year and it’s been driven a lot, with 51,000 miles on the odometer. Those two facts help make it the cheapest Lamborghini currently listed on Autotrader, with an asking price of just $79,000 — far below the standard going rate for a Gallardo, even from the first model year.

Fortunately to most eyes, that color you see isn’t the color the car is painted: It’s merely wrapped in vinyl green, though the seller hasn’t indicated what color the car actually is. The Carfax report is clean, noting no accidents and a lifetime of use in Southern California — the perfect climate for a Gallardo. As for the mileage, it looks like most of its miles were added right away: The Carfax report noted 34,000 miles in the first five years of its life, with just 16,000 coming in the ensuing eight years.

For most buyers, however, the biggest question with this car will likely be reliability, since just how dependable is a 13-year-old Lamborghini with 51,000 miles? For around $20,000 less than most other early Gallardo models, you could be the one to find out. Find a Lamborghini Gallardo for sale

  1. I mean, isn’t it just a glorified Audi engine in the Gallardo? I know the interior is Audi parts bin so I figure some of the drivetrain components are as well.

    • Well considering vw owns both and they are both luxury brands whats the big deal it says Lamborghini on it after all

  2. I see the mileage as a plus – the car was driven regularly, and it made it this far….what could go wrong????
