August 1, 2013

Lamborghini has pulled the wraps of a new Gallardo special edition called the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse. The car is designed as a race car for the road.

Inspired by the Gallardo Super Trofeo racing series car, the Squadra Corse features many carbon fibre components including the aggressive bodykit, wings, and the new quick-release engine cover.

As a result, the car is lightweight to provide the ultimate power-to-weight ratio. It tips the scales at 1340kg, which is around 70kg less than the Gallardo LP 560-4.

Power comes from the regular 5.2-litre V10 engine producing 419kW and 540Nm. It’s matched up to a six-speed e-gear sequential transmission with all-wheel drive.

Acceleration for the 0-100km/h sprint takes just 3.4 seconds, with 200km/h coming up in just 10.4 seconds. It’ll keep going until it hits a mind-blowing top speed of 320km/h.

Inside, the cabin is decked out in lots of Alcantara with various carbon fibre fixtures. The door trims, seats, part of the steering wheel, and centre console are all made from the lightweight fibre.

Lamborghini is planning to give the car a proper public unveiling at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, which starts on September 10 (media day). Only a handful of these bad boys are likely to hit the market.
