Lamborghini makes headlines again. After production of the 2,000th Lamborghini Aventador and the presentation of the Lamborghini Egoista follows another highlight: The World Premier of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse at the IAA 2013 in Frankfurt in September.
Motorsport hits the road
The new model is probably the most extreme of the Lamborghini Gallardo series and brings the full fascination of motorsport to the road. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is based on the Gallardo LP 570-4 Supertrofeo and the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. The name “Squadra Corse” refers to the recently established motor sport department of the company.
Technically, the new model is very similar to the Supertrofeo racing car with a 570bhp 5.2-litre V10 engine and large rear wing. This ensures a high aerodynamic downforce and increases the dynamic stability at high speeds. Even the removable engine hood made of carbon fiber and reinforced plastic with quick-release system is inspired by its racing car counterparts. It also has the same steering wheel shift paddles, all-wheel drive, and e-gear six-speed transmission.
A real Sprinter with national pride
Due to its extremely lightweight construction, which mainly consists of carbon fiber and aluminium, the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse only weighs 1340 kg. The new model achieves its sprint from 0 to 62mph in 3.4 Seconds and has a top speed of 199mph.
It is available in colours of the Squadra Corse; Giallo Midas (yellow), Monocerus Bianco (white), Grigio Thalasso (gray) and Rosso Mars (red). The decorative strips on the side are decorated in the colours of the Italian flag. The interior is characterized by extremely lightweight carbon fiber and Alcantara trim.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse will be presented for the first time At the international automotive show in Frankfurt 12-22nd Sep were more details including price are likely to be announced.
