Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse & Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 – Video
With the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, Automobili Lamborghini brings race track emotion directly to the road. It delivers high performance and brings the fascination of motor racing to the street-legal world. This new and most extreme model in the Gallardo line-up is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world’s fastest one make series. The car will have its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The name Squadra Corse refers to the recently-founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America where gentlemen drivers battle face-to-face in fierce contests on the most challenging racetracks.
The new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars. Both share the same V10 engine, which is used in the racing version with no modifications. Likewise, the Squadra Corse has the same rear wing for greater aerodynamic load – achieving, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 – for increased dynamic stability during tight, high speed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood with quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are a host of other components on the Squadra Corse.
The Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica. The new Gallardo LP 560-4 – equipped with permanent four wheel drive- has a new front end and a new rear, while top models in the Gallardo line-up, the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, will also be offered as the further enhanced Edizione Tecnica. The new Gallardo models will be available at Lamborghini dealerships from November 2012.
The unique design with its razor-sharp lines is one of the key factors of the Gallardo great success worldwide. Nearly 13,000 units have already left the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory. The Gallardo design has now been further accentuated in the new Gallardo LP 560-4. The new front end is characterized by triangular and trapezoidal forms – two shapes that are typical of the Lamborghini design. To complete the new look, larger air intakes have been created ahead of the front wheels and the new 19-inch “Apollo polished” alloy wheels, painted in matt black and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished silver. Also new is the even more dynamic rear end design on the Gallardo LP 560-4. The triangle and trapezoid are the characteristic design elements here, too. The air outlet for the power unit has now a wider surface area, which improves its thermodynamic efficiency. A new Style Package is also available.
With a more determined lightweight design, a focus on high performance and a purist look, the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera and the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante mark the very pinnacle of the Gallardo family. As Edizione Tecnica, they benefit from a further improved equipment level and an even more individual look. Features of the Edizione Tecnica include the fixed high rear wing, as well as brakes in carbon-ceramic technology. They combine low weight with outstanding fade resistance and durability. The power to weight ratio down to an outstanding 2,35 allows the car to be taken as one of the best references in the segment.
