Lamborghini’s brand new Gallardo Super Trofeo edition shook the world as rumors started occurring about it. Sources say it will sport a new 570 horsepower 5.2-liter V-10 engine, six-speed e-gear transmission, all-wheel drive configuration, racing suspension, and to top it all off, it’ll shed 220 lbs.
Knowing that this is a racing car, only 30 models will be made.
It is not yet released how much money it will cost but speculations say it will cost $250,000 upwards.
Here we have it. The all new Lamborghini Aventador. This is the beast we’ve been waiting for, finally here. The new Lamborghini has been finally been released, yet prior to that, it’s already been sold out! For just $379,700, you could’ve brought it home. Little to late to buy now, as you can see.
Boasting just 3,472 pounds, it is made out of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), brand new materials to Lamborghini. The power on the Lambo comes from a 6.5 liter V12 with an ouput of 700 PS *690 bhp) and 509 lb-ft of torque. The new gearbox is a 7-speed independent shift rod transmission supplied by Graziano Trasmissioni Group featuring just 50 millisecond shift times. The LP700-4 Aventador also has an intriguing Haldex all-wheel drive system.
I realized it sounds much like an Audi R8 – which does make sense knowing Lamborghini is owned and operated by Audi.
What are your thoughts? Do you think they made the right move?
