Mercedes-Benz is introducing the S400, a hybrid version of its S-Class luxury sedan, in the United States. But much of the details of the upcoming S400 Hybrid are still uncertain. That includes the vehicle’s launch period. Some sources say 2009, while others say 2010. If it becomes available in 2010, it may overlap with the probable launch of the Mercedes Benz S400 Bluetec Hybrid, which was unveiled as a concept vehicle at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The 2009 Gallardo is a 2-door, 2-passenger luxury sports car, available in one trim only, the LP560-4 Coupe. Upon introduction, the Gallardo is equipped with a standard 5.2-liter, V10, 552-horsepower engine that achieves 11-mpg in the city and 23-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard, and a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is optional.
Costs only $198,000 compared to the other model which costs $1,500,000 !!!!!!
