We can now reveal that Lamborghini will release the Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition tomorrow at the seasons close of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo at the “Piero Taruffi” circuit, Vallelunga. The road-legal Blancpain Edition celebrates the two-year relationship between the Italian supercar brand and the watchmaker.
Modifications to the LP570-4 Superleggera are aimed at placing a Gallardo onto public roads that closely resembles the Blancpain Super Trofeo racers we see on track. There’s a new larger spoiler and an engine lid that optimizes ventilation; Skorpius wheels with yellow-painted brake calipers and discs made from carbon-ceramic composites are also featured.
Carbon fiber has been used to make external components such as the diffuser and mirror casings. The exterior receives a matte black finish to complement these touches.
The entire interior has been finished in black Alcantara with yellow accents and visible carbon fiber. Plenty of Blancpain logos symbolise the special nature of this vehicle both inside and out. The engine is the same as the serial Superleggera featuring 570bhp.
Dry weight is just 1340 kilograms (2954lb) making this the lightest road going model that Lamborghini produce!
Lamborghini is extremely happy about its cooperation with Blancpain. In just its second year, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo has established itself in the premier league of gentlemen’s racing,
says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
Each race is a battle of dedication and passion for every single hundredth of a second – something that characterizes both of our brands. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition demonstrates the close bond between our road-going super sports cars and the race car.
