It you’re looking to build a serious performance machine, a good way to start is with a car that is already mind-blowing from the factory. Let us introduce you to the RENM Performance Lamborghini Gallardo STS-700 for some inspiration.
Based on the 419kW Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale, RENM Performance has developed a tuning package which takes power up to, you guessed it, 700hp (515kW). This gives it the same power as its bigger brother, the Lamborghini Aventador.
The package includes various titanium internal engine components, such as larger inlet valves and con-rods, as well as a bi-modal exhaust system that is around 63 per cent lighter in weight than the original item.
The engine also receives a billet crankshaft and pistons, custom billet cams and exhaust valves, and custom exhaust ports. It all helps to achieve peak power at a screaming 8500rpm.
On the tarmac, the RENM Performance Lamborghini Gallardo can cover 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds, and hit a top speed of over 330km/h.
In other areas, RENM has fit a carbon fibre bodykit to provide increased aerodynamic flow and downforce, as well as more cooling ducts for the engine and the upgraded carbon ceramic brakes. The ceramic brakes sit behind a set of lightweight magnesium racing alloy wheels.
Underneath the skin is a comprehensive Ohlins adjustable suspension setup with new sway bars and wishbone links. The Gallardo’s track is also widened for increased stance and stability. Neil Meka, CEO at RENM Performance, recently spoke about the package, saying,
“The STS-700 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reaches a top speed over 330 km/h. However, improved driving dynamics and track performance are the main advantages. Significant reductions in lap times were recorded throughout the vehicle’s development.”
Inside is equipped with a roll cage, bucket seats with four-point harnesses, and a fire extinguisher for added safety.
