There’s nothing sexier than a limited edition Lamborghini. The rappers and athletes agree. Last week Lamborghini debuted the 260k Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse. This new Lambo is derived from Super Trafeo race cars. Squadra Corse means street-legal motorsports based whips. Some of the design cues are direct incarnations of Lamborghinis used in some of the fastest races in the world.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is a 1340 kilogram piece of lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber. There’s even a removable carbon-fiber hood and rear wing made of carbon composite materials. Not only is the design sexy, its lightweight components help it corner better at high speeds. And stylish design cues like the high gloss black hood, front air intakes, and 19” wheels and matte black rear wing make the Gallardo a stunner.
The Gallardo Squadra Corse comes with a V10 engine with 500 horsepower. The robotized e-gear 6-speed transmission operates with paddle shifters at the steering wheel. Shifting is seamless with an electronic controlled system. And all-wheel-drive makes for an exhilarating ride.
The Gallardo Squadra Corse goes from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds with a max speed of 192 mph. The Gallardo Squadra Corse also has carbon ceramic brakes.
Inside the Gallardo Squadra Corse are Alcantra and carbon fiber accents. Carbon fiber makes up the door panel, hand brake frame, center console, steering wheel, door handles, glove box door, and trim around the instrument panels.Alcantra is used for the center panel of the seat cushion and backrest.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is currently on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
