Benny Caiola, Jr., noted Italian car enthusiast and collector, this week at his home outside of New York City was the first to take delivery of the Gallardo LP560-4 in the United States.

Caiola is no stranger to the Lamborghini marque with a personal collection of dozens of collector cars and Lamborghini's including Countach, Diablo, Espada, Jalpa and the legendary Miura. "Lamborghini was the first to garner my passion for automobiles," Caiola explained. "I've loved Lamborghinis my entire life and have owned nearly every model."

Mr. Caiola secured the claim to the first LP560-4 through a winning bid at the East Side House Settlement charity auction during the 2008 New York International Auto Show

The remaining LP560-4 arrive across all US Lamborghini dealers later this summer, for which there is a six month waiting list. The Gallardo has sold more than 7,100 units sold worldwide - Lamborghini's most successful model of all time.
