Lamborghini has released that they have produced over 12,000 Gallardos since the production started in 2003. The Gallardo is Lamborghini’s most-produced model to date and will continue to be produced the next few years until the successor is finally launched.
Over twenty different versions have been produced the past nine years. The latest version – the Super Trofeo Stradale – was introduced at the IAA 2011 and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo Blancpain Super Trofeo race car and limited to only 150 units. Aluminium and carbon fiber form the basis for the extremely lightweight Super Trofeo Stradale.
It has a maximum dry weight of 1,340kg, shaving an extra 70kg from the LP560-4. The power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per hp allows the car to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds and 200km/h just 10.4 seconds later. Top speed is 320km/h.
Rumours suggest that the Gallardo will be replaced with a car named the Cabrera. The new model may pack a supercharged V10 packing a possible 600 horsepower. The Cabrera will also feature carbon fiber parts that will help to reduce the car’s total weight. Four-wheel drive is also being considered. The name would be ‘Cabrera LP600-4’.
