Lamborghini has unveiled its most uncompromised Gallardo on the eve of the Frankfurt motor show the LP570-4 Super Trofeo. Top speed is almost 200mph and 0-62mph takes just 3.4sec.
The new machine, revealed in Frankfurt this week, is inspired by the competition car that runs in the Sant’Agata firm’s one-make race series.
This ‘super sports car’ is lighter, faster and more responsive than the standard LP560-4 road car, and it has performance and a spec similar to the previous LP570-4 Superleggera Gallardo. Lamborghini claims of the Super Trofeo: “No other model in the Gallardo line is as close to being a true race car.”
Carbonfibre and aluminium construction reduces the weight to 1340kg, some 70kg less than the LP560-4. The 5.2-litre V10 engine generates 562bhp at 8000rpm and cranks out 398lb ft at 6500rpm.
The road car adopts the racer’s robotised e-gear six-speed, paddle-shift transmission. Suspension is double aluminium wishbones.
The interior is fitted with a mix of Alcantara and carbonfibre. The latter is used on the door panels, monocoque racing seats, centre console cover and, as an option, items such as the steering wheel.
