The Ultimate Gallardo

Lamborghini is set to unleash the ultimate version of the V10 baby at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. In a teasing invite to the expo, Lamborghini revealed it would unleash a “super sports car”. And while the firm wouldn’t officially say much more, Auto Express has learned it will show off a road-going version of the Super Trofeo (refer to above photograph) from its one-make race series.

Based on the LP560-4, only 30 units of this track special version have been made. They are powered by a 562bhp 5.2-litre V10 coupled with a six-speed e-gear paddleshift transmission and race-spec suspension. Thanks to a stripped-out interior and significant use of composite materials, it tips the scales at a mere 1,300kg ,which is 110kg lighter than the standard car and 40kg down on the special-edition, feather-weight Gallardo Superleggara. It also gets a whole host of aerodynamic tweaks, with a big wing at the rear and a ground-hugging front splitter. The Frankfurt show star will follow the same formula, with a lower kerb weight than any road-going Gallardo before it. In addition, aggressive good looks is almost guaranteed and, potentially, additional power from its V10 engine.

The ultimate Gallardo is expected to complete the century sprint in mere 3 seconds, going on to a top speed of 210mph. The show car is expected to be painted in bright red with limited production. This is what I call going out with a bang!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
