The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse is a Superleggera with a few more special touches inspired by Lamborghini’s race cars. This red example which resides in Hong Kong looks fantastic with the tricolor stripes and the gigantic GT3-esque rear wing.
Naturally, the Squadra Corse features the same V10 engine as the racer and the road cars with the same 570 hp power rating. Elsewhere, it features a carbon fibre rear wing, identical to the race car and a quick release carbon fibre rear hood. The biggest design change is the incorporation of the new, highly controversial, angular Gallardo front and rear bumpers.
Essentially, the mechanical’s offer nothing new over the outgoing Superleggera and Super Trofeo models. The special edition simply translates Lamborghini’s latest Super Trofeo racer to the road, but do not for one second think that Gallardo, that has now ceased production, in a slouch!
The Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse boasts a dry weight of 1340 kilograms, 70 less than the already lean Gallardo LP560-4, which gives the Squadra Corse a power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per hp. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in just 10.4 seconds. It finally tops out at 320km/h. Fast by any standards!
