The first pictures and details of the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo are making their way out of Lamborghini today, following the car’s official release over the weekend at the final round of the final round of the European Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series in Navarra, Spain. Stephan Winkelmann, Automobili Lamborghini’s President and CEO revealed the redesigned racer alongside the company’s Research & Development Director and Head of Lamborghini Motorsport, Maurizio Reggiani.
The series’ 2013 race car is the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo. It gets the proven chassis and mechanical platform of its predecessor coupled with aerodynamically re-profiled body panels, styled on the recently unveiled 2013 Lamborghini LP560-4. This includes an all-new ten-position rear wing, larger and more technical that the previous unit.
The Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo sees an 120 percent improvement in aerodynamic efficiency over the Gallardo’s 2012 model. With re-modelling of brake ducts, the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo achieves a 50 percent improvement in thermal performance with improved front brake cooling, while better balance and dynamic performance is achieved by increasing downforce by 128kg in low downforce set up and 160kg in high downforce trim.
