Details and pictures of the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera have been released. The superlight Gallardo has made great use of carbon fiber to gice even more weight than the LP560 on which it is based from. 154 lbs has been taken from the normal car, making the LP 570-4 Superleggera Lamborghini’s lightest car.
Power is sourced from a 5.2-litre V10 with an aluminium crankcase and dry sump lubrication. It makes 562 hp at 8,000rpm. Maximum torque is 398 ft-lbsat 6,500rpm. Lamborghini is putting the 6-speed e-gear as standard but can offer customers a no-cost manual as an option to some. The sprint times are 0-60 MPH in 3.4 seconds and 124 mph in 10.2 seconds. Top velocity (speed) is 202 mph.
The body is made from aluminium while parts like the exterior mirror casings, the sills, rear spoiler and diffuser are carbon fibre. The windscreen and side windows are constructed out of polycarbonate. Lambo remodelled the front bumper for increased air flow. As indicated by the number 4 in its name, the LP 570-4 Superleggera has permanent AWD and a 45% limited slip differential on the rear.
Carbon fibre is also used extensively in the interior, with items such as the center cover, the door panels and the gearlever surround all being made from the material. Alcantara is also pasted around the cabin and on the sports seats.
Customers won’t just enjoy the extreme performance but some luxury gadgets as well, including air conditioning, a rear view camera, electric powered windows and a satellite navigation system.
