Well-heeled car enthusiasts will have to wait nearly 18 months to take delivery of Lamborghini's latest Gallardo model even though the sports car has just been launched in the territory, a media report said Monday. ( dpa )

The latest Gallardo, with 5.2 litre V10 engine that can take the car from zero to 100 km per hour in 3.7 seconds, is being sold for 3.28 million Hong Kong dollars (410,510 dollars), the South China Morning Post said.

"If you order one today, it would be ready for delivery in the last quarter of 2009. Basically there is a backlog in orders of a year," an unidentified Lamborghini salesman told the newspaper.
