Lamborghini Gallardo: HW SM

I'm not a really big fan of Lamborghini, but this particular Speed Machines cast from Hot Wheels caught my eye:

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 from Hot Wheels Speed Machines

Very few white cars with black hood could manage to look this good. Now if you look carefully, you'll notice that the black paint and the red stripes on the hood of the pictured car on the card extend to the upper portion of the front bumper. But in the cast itself, they're limited to the hood. But it looks just as good, if not better.

A closer look at the engine bay. I suppose the scribblings on the engine cover is supposed read 'Lamborghini'. Though it's not exactly detailed to the point where you could actually read the word 'Lamborghini', you gotta respect the extra effort they took to paint the engine cover. At least it's better than nothing.

Looks equally stunning from the back. It would be really great if they painted the exhaust tips as well. The Lamborghini tampo on the boot is slightly off-center, but it still looks acceptable.

And here's the 3D version in Need for Speed Shift. Hope you guys like it. :)

  2. nice lamborghini from speed machine series!
    didn't knows that the rear engines covers detailed with it names on it.
    Thanks for the close up pictures, it's worth collecting.

  3. even if the engine cover doesn't have the name detailed on it, im sure u could make a custom one, which will be much nicer. :D
