Lamborghini vehicles can be identified from the following data:
Every vehicle also has various other serial numbers in different locations (bodywork, gearbox, differential) on the vehicle, but it is not possible to use these numbers to arrive at the VIN.
1. Vehicle Identification Number:
1.1 Location of the VIN
1.2 Form and appearance of the VIN
1.2.1 Stamped VIN
The VIN is stamped onto the body shell at the Sant’Agata Bolognese (Province Bologna) works. Two methods of stamping are in use for current production models.
Example: Murciélago (classic stamping method) on a traditional base
An example from the Gallardo (stamped with superimposed needle punching) on an aluminium base
1.3 VIN behind the windscreen – Visible VIN
Located on the left, in the direction of travel
On all Gallardo vehicles the VIN is behind the windscreen. But this badge is only used on vehicles destined for the American, Canadian and Chinese markets on the MURCIÉLAGO (before MY 2008).
