Special edition model is inspired by the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series
29 September 2010

Lamborghini will launch this even more extreme Gallardo LP 570-4 at this week’s Paris motor show.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition is inspired by the competition Gallardo that competes in the one-make Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series and is a collaboration between the Italian supercar maker and the luxury watch maker.

The Gallardo Blancpain Edition gets a large fixed rear spoiler and a revised engine cover for optimised cooling, both of which have been derived from the race car. It also gets Skorpius black alloy wheels and yellow-painted brake callipers, as well as carbon-ceramic brake discs.

The car is finished in matt black paint and also makes extensive use of carbonfibre for parts including the diffuser and mirror casings.

The interior is finished in black Alcantara with yellow accents and carbonfibre trim. The Blancpain logo is also added to the exterior and is stitched in yellow into the cockpit.

Power comes from the same 562bhp V10 engine as the Superleggera model and its dry weight is just 1340kg making it the lightest car in Lamborghini’s range.

It can get from 0-62mph in 3.4sec and from 0-124mph in 10.2sec; its top speed is 199mph.

The Superleggera is 3mph faster. i'll have the Superleggera in green, thanks.

Not the same aero. Not the same downforce.

Not the same car.

[/quote] You seem to miss my point. They said it is the most "extreme", but, as I have demonstrated, clearly it is not. By the way, it is the same car, just a different version.

PC, I was thinking exactly the same thing. I am a big admirer of Lamborghinis, especially the Gallardo, but this doesn't really do anything for me

You know those paragraphs with jumbled letters that are still readable - I took this as "back pain" or the Italian for white bread. I'm sure toilet clearner sounds exotic in Italian - Lamborghini WC più puliti, see.

Bancpain is French for white bread, I guess in English the surname would translate as Whitbread.

I have a Blancpain watch and is not as garish as this Lambo, Blancpain watches are generally quite traditional in style.

P.S. Most words sound sexy/exciting in Italian, even Ferrari roughly translates as Blacksmith ....
