Lamborghini unveiled a facelift of its best selling the model the Gallardo. Changes to the Gallardo LP 560-4 – the best-selling model in Lamborghini’s history - include tweaked front and rear styling, new matt black 19in alloy wheels and larger air intakes in front of the front wheels.

The supercar can also be specified with a new Style Package, which sees the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and parts of the rear trim painted to gloss black. Further customisation is available through Lamborghini’s ‘Ad Personam’ programme.

Also new to the Gallardo range is a new Edizione Tecnica specification for the high-performance LP 570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante models

These models get a new fixed rear wing, carbon ceramic brakes and a new look with three different colour combinations.

The revised LP 560-4 and new Edizione Tecnica models will be in showrooms from November. The Gallardo LP 550-2 coupé and Spyder models continue unchanged.

Suzuki has revealed the first few images of the new S-Cross crossover concept.

This will in future form the base of the next-gen SX4 hatch, which is sold in international markets. It may also come to India later in a saloon form, just like the current car.

The S-Cross concept gets bold styling with LED headlamps and huge chrome wheels. It also gets LED DRLs in front. Rear styling looks a bit Audi-inspired, especially in the design of the tail lamps.

There are no details on engines yet. Suzuki will officially unveil this concept at the ongoing Paris Motor Show 2012.

Though some people I know havent liked the Gallardo facelift, I quite like this one. It has given the Gallardo a very Aventadorish look upfront. But good on Lambo to keep the old look intact on the entry level LP550-2.

The VW hall pictures are simply delicious. Most of the world finest sharing the same stage.
