I'd really like to see if there are truly 9 white super g's produced. It seems like there are at least 9 just on here.

I'll start.

1. White SL- western Canada.

A buddy of mine has one in here in Atlanta.

I'll let him post any details himself if he'd like...

I know of one in the UK, it was once owned by "Shoebag" (a girl). Don't know who has it now.

Just found 2 more in France.
I think the "9" count is utter BS.

It's 9 in the US not worldwide.

I have the one here in Atlanta. There were 10 white superleggeras imported to the U.S. in 2008. One was totaled at the track, which has resulted in 9 being left. I do not know what the worldwide production of white SL's were. I understand that a total of around 150 SL's came to the US in 2008.

> I think the "9" count is utter BS.

The often quoted "only 10" refers to the white
ones amongst the 172 total that were destined
for the US market.

Over the past 2 years I spotted the following 6
of them in various places or sales in the web:

ZHWGU43T28LA06869
ZHWGU43T78LA06964
ZHWGU43T88LA06973
ZHWGU43T88LA07038 (went to Alberta, Canada)
ZHWGU43T58LA07093
ZHWGU43T28LA07097

One of the 10 is said to have been totaled in an
accident; so far I haven't seen proof for that --
so I remain a bit skeptical.

I'm also aware of at least one more in Montreal,
Canada and one in Melbourne, Australia.

Plus 2 in Germany (one had plate MS AO 50 and
was EDO tuned; the other one is a rental).

Plus 1 more somewhere in Europe (with roll cage).

And yes it's very likely that there are a few more.
Such as in France. Let alone the Mid East or Asia.

Because if 10 of 172 were white for the US, then
there probably were ~36 white ones total, out of
the at least 618 that were produced.

Yep, 618 total. Straight from the bull's mouth, so
to speak -- the March 2010 Lamborghini Bollettino
says this on page 5:

"[...] the Gallardo Superleggera, which was
introduced in 2007 and sold an impressive
618 units in its first year."

Depending on the definition of "first year", there is
either 618 (for the 2008 model year, that covered
the SL, and ran from mid 2007 to ~March 2008) or
more than 618 (if "first year" refers to just the run
from mid 2007 to 2007-12-31).

And yeah, if the US represented ~30% of the total
market back then, this 618 number should not come
as a surprise, given the 172 US number.

In short: 10 originally for the US, but definitely more
than 10 world wide. Still the most rare color though!

(Discounting the pink one in London, which is said to
be just a wrap job.)

I have the one in Alberta Canada. It's a US car:D

Lambo Vancouver had one back in november, 560 front end and CF wheels, don't know where that ended up.
