Reiter Engineering unveils street-legal Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 Strada

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

It was unveiled by the German racing and engineering firm Reiter Engineering the street-going version of its Lamborghini Gallardo racecar designated the GT3 Strada.

Well known for its enhancement of lightweight racing variants of Lamborghini super vehicles such as the Diablo, Gallardo, and Murcielago, Reiter Engineering is the factory-backed entry for the Lamborghini team in the FIA GT Championships.

Previously, the firm showcased the street-going Murcielago R-GT supercar at Germany's Essen Motor Show, and lately it has unwrapped details about its latest Gallardo GT3 Strada.

Force is provided by Gallardo's regular 5.0L V10 powerhouse but energy has been improved by 10hp which it owes to the putting in of a new high-flow exhaust which is mounted at the center. Weight has been lowered only by about 9kg, pointing to the fact that the Gallardo's All Wheel Drive system is preserved.

The full range of the revisions are not known with regards to the first production concept, nevertheless Reiter Engineering generally take out AWD systems for their racing vehicles in keeping with racing guidelines.

Making the GT3 Strada distinct from the typical model is a bespoke body made from carbon-fiber with 60mm increased fenders, an gigantic GT wing, a ride-height that has been lowered, and alloy rims of three-pieces wrapped with rubber form Michelin Pilot Sport 2. At the interior, the car stays mostly stock besides the added racing bucket seats wrapped in new leather.

It is clear that the rear section of the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 has been redesigned in order to provide a new definition on what “powerful elegance” really means. All features of the rear end have been placed on precision locations on the exterior. These include the air cooling vents, diffuser, bumper, and rear lights. As a result, it makes the LP560-4 look as if it is hugging the road and it is wider as well.

On the front, the use of streamlined covers on the engine hood’s right and left side helps put focus on the shoulders and even the extended and stretched lines of this new model. One defining feature is the LED daytime running lights which have been placed under the Bi-Xenon lamps of the new headlights. These daytime running lights are composed of a total of 15 diodes and then placed within a Y structure.

The same theme is used as well for the taillights in the rear. Meanwhile the brake and stop lights are clearly inspired not only by the Murciélago LP640 but that of the Reventón and the Miura Concept. It also has that Y form. Without question, a Lamborghini will always be an athlete, and an efficient one at that. Its extreme passion is the product of a number of factors like unplanned action, performance, and precision.

The elegance of a Lamborghini is a result of purist and simple strength. Generally, the design language of the brand is continuously developed every time a new model comes out from none other than the Centro Stile. No wonder then that the Gallardo LP560-4 is able to show a uniquely minimalist design that makes use of clean surface edges and precise lines. One will be unable to see any decor or ornaments.

For Lamborghini, it is not enough that the form is improved. Each new model should also be able to meet the needs as it relates to function. This is why the front section has been redesigned so that it would be closer to the ground helping with the aerodynamic efficiency. The cooling intakes are emphasized further and by having a larger size, is able to meet any of the demands needed by the upgraded engine power.

Specifically, it helps boost the circulation of air that is important especially for an engine with this much power. With the spoiler being placed low and in the middle of the air intakes, it enhances the aerodynamic equilibrium even when running at high speeds.
