Lamborghini will be presenting their new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse for the first time at this years 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show which they say is the?fastest version of the Italian supercar ever. The Squadra Corse takes its name from companies recently created race division and delivers the highest levels of performance and style associated with Gallardo Super Trofeo race car to the street legal world.
Power comes from the same engine used in the Gallardo race car, a V10 pumping out 562bhp through a six-speed e-gear gearbox with steering wheel mounted paddleshift. Full power is delivered at 8,000 rpm and the car can hit 62mph from standstill in just 3.4 seconds moving on to a top speed of 199mph.
To maximize performance, the Squadra Corse is made completely from aluminium and carbon fibre, including the rear wing which is also taken directly from the race car and gives the? Suadra Corse three times more down-force than the standard Gallardo LP 5604. Thanks to the extensive use of aluminium and carbonfibre the Squadra Corse weighs just 1,340kg, 70kg less than the standard LP 560-4.
Much like the exterior of the car, the interior makes use of lots of carbonfibre with handbrake framework and centre console made completely from the material. The racing bucket seats are covered in Alcantara with buyers able to specify comfort seats if preferred.
Customers can order the car in Giallo Midas (yellow), Bianco Monocerus (white),?Grigio Thalasso (grey) or?Rosso Mars (red) with an Italian inspired racing strip along the flank. The rear wing comes finished in Matte Black with the hood, rear diffuser and 19″ alloy wheels all finished in black gloss.
The Squadra Corse will be produced in a limited quantity with Lamborghini set to announce prices closer to the car going on sale. It is likely that the Squadra Corse will be the final edition for the Gallardo which is due to be replaced next year by the “Cabrera”.
