FRANKFURT, Germany — Lamborghini has unveiled "the most extreme Gallardo ever" — the Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale.
The new range-topper will be built in a limited run of 150 numbered units. It is based on the Gallardo racecar developed for Lamborghini's Blancpain Super Trofeo single-make racing series, borrowing such lightweight features as a carbon-fiber quick-release engine cover and rear spoiler.
Those elements are finished in matte black to accent the car's new Rosso Mars paint scheme. The car can also be ordered in Grigio Telesto and Bianco Monocerus, with the roof painted gloss black.
The Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale has a 5.2-liter V10 rated at 562 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. With power delivered to all four wheels through a six-speed e-gearbox with paddle shifters, the car rockets from rest to 60 in less than 3.4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 199 mph.
The Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale rides on Pirelli P Zero Corsa performance tires — 235/35ZR19 in front and 295/30ZR19 in the rear. The 19-inch forged alloy wheels are painted gloss black.
For maximum stopping power, the car sports oversize vented disc brakes, with eight pots in front and four in the rear. Carbon-ceramic brakes are available as an extra-cost option.
Lamborghini has trimmed the cockpit in red and black Alcantara, with carbon-fiber accents on the doors, seats and center console.
Optional gear includes goodies for the weekend racer, including a tubular roll cage, four-point belts and a fire extinguisher.
Edmunds.com says: With a lightweight monocoque and a stunning power-to-weight ratio, this new Lambo — the last of the ultra-Gallardos — is wicked quick.
