If you want to feel the rush of being on the track, Lamborghini has something for you -- the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse. The new car was revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Trofeo.
Lamborghini said that the name Squadra Corse originates from the newly formed department within Automobili Lamborghini, which handles all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. In addition, the new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars as it is powered by the same V10 engine, same rear wing and a removable engine hood with quick-release system.
These are both built from carbon composite material. Lamborghini said that the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse has a dry weight of 1340 kilograms, making it 70 less than the standard version of the Gallardo. Because of this, it boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per horsepower.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.4 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.4 seconds and has the ability to hit a top speed of 320 kmh or 200 mph. Its braking power is unrivalled due to its production-standard carbon-ceramic brake system. It is powered by a V10 engine under the bonnet that delivers 570 hp (419 kW), fully available at 8,000 rpm.
