Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera


Make it even more deadly such as a super Gallardo says a lot about how Lamborghini likes to primates. Only 350 copies will be Gallardo Superleggera, which will roll off the production line in Sant'Agata Bolognese, a limited edition of a car that aims to be the exclusive manufacturer of sporting Emilia. The name "Superleggera" is certainly not random, since the weight loss one of the peculiarities of this version: the total mass of the car marks on the scale 1,420 kg, or 100 kg less than the standard Gallardo.

The Research and Development Division of the Lamborghini, directed by Maurizio Reggiani, has improved so many details in order to optimize mass and components of this already excellent sport. Among the interventions made, inside the car, there are the door panels now consist of a single piece of carbon fiber, the same material used for the two bucket seats upholstered in Alcantara. A hundredweight in less well, however, needs more work, so the research team has worked mainly on structure Lamborghini Gallardo. The carbon fiber was also used for side sills, rear air extractor on the roof of the hood and on the rear wing, the latter including a camera for easy maneuvering in reverse. As seen in the past from the sports competition as the Porsche GT3 RS and Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, some glass surfaces were replaced with lighter materials. The glass of the engine bonnet of Superleggera has been changed with the polycarbonate, while the rear window is in Macrolon. The lighter is also the drive shaft and also the wheel rims, called "Skorpious" forged magnesium and secured to the hubs by fine titanium nuts.

The attention to detail like a Lamborghini, as well as to excel in their class. Not content with the 100 kg of mass gained by means of those engineers Emilia, in development, they would consider the possibility of eliminating this special four-wheel drive Gallardo, transforming it into a rear wheel drive and save an additional 50 kg. The tradition and the magic balance of the four-wheel drive, however, have had the better of the final decision.

The mechanics were the same as the standard Gallardo, although the beautiful 10-cylinder V 90 ° from 4,981 cc delivers 530 hp at 8,000 rpm hours, 11 hp more than the normal version. The renewed cavalry, together with a torque of 510 Nm at 4,250 rpm, was obtained by mapping a new electronics, new exhaust and intake manifolds by a new exhaust system. The braking system for GP and counts 365 mm ventilated discs up front and 325 mm rear. Optionally available are carbon-ceramic brakes, at a price of 14,000 Euros. The Gallardo Superleggera, therefore, becomes the sport on the paper faster than the category, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds says (0.2 less than the Gallardo "normal") and 315 km / h maximum speed.

To have one of 350 copies of Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera is needed 189,331 euros, a price 20% higher than the normal model, but that will satisfy 100% of the lovers of true sport driving according to Lamborghini.
