Lamborghini Gallardo Spider Owned by Vietnamese Billionaire Spotted Again in Hanoi

A rare Lamborghini Gallardo Spider owned by Vietnamese billionaire Đặng Lê Nguyên Vũ was recently spotted back on the streets of Hanoi, Vietnam after being off display for some time. The Lamborghini Gallardo was one of the most successful models produced by the iconic Italian supercar manufacturer between 2003-2013, with over 14,000 units built.

Đặng Lê Nguyên Vũ is the chairman of Trung Nguyên Group, one of the largest coffee companies in Vietnam. He is well known in Vietnam for his collection of ultra-luxury vehicles which includes hypercars from brands like Bugatti, McLaren and Porsche. This Gallardo Spider was imported into Vietnam in 2016 through a private dealer, making it one of just three Gallardo convertibles currently in the country.

Finished in a striking white and black color scheme, the car remains in largely original condition since its arrival over 6 years ago. It wears subtle styling modifications like blacked out rear light clusters and custom Trung Nguyên coffee mug holders inside- a signature personalization for vehicles in Vũ's fleet. Mechanically, the 5.2L naturally aspirated V10 engine delivers a potent 560 horsepower to all four wheels through Lamborghini's quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.


This particular Gallardo Spider is from the final facelifted generation introduced in 2013. It features an aggressive front bumper design and wears 50th Anniversary badging, though this was simply a styling theme rather than celebrating Lamborghini's anniversary. With a 0-60mph time of just 4 seconds and a top speed of over 200mph, the Gallardo was a stunning yet accessible entry point into the world of Italian exotic motoring when new.

While most high-end collectors choose to garage high value classics, Vũ is renowned for frequently exercising his stable which often sees his cars proudly displayed at high-profile local car shows and events. It's believed he maintains one of the most significant supercar collections in all of Southeast Asia, helping to increase passion for the automotive hobby within Vietnam. As the Gallardo Spider returns to the streets, it serves as a reminder of just how far the country's car culture has come in recent decades.
