Frankfurt Motor Show will open its doors with a big surprise for the Lamborghini fanatics: behold the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale! As expected, the car is based on the successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo and will be produced in a limited edition of just 150 units. The first visual impact with the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale shows us a big carbon fiber rear spoiler that can be varied manually in order to let you optimize the car’s performance according to the track or road characteristics.
And this is not the only element taken from the racing world as the new Lambo also features a removable engine hood with quick-release system. Under this hood we find the 5.2-liter V10 engine delivering 570 hp (419 kW) and 540 Nm of torque.
Due to the fact that the maximum dry weight of the car is 1340 kg (with 70 kilograms lighter than the standard Gallardo LP 570-4), Lamborghini says that the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is able to hit 62 mph or 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, 124 mph or 200 km/h in 10.4 seconds and has a top speed of 200 mph or 210 km/h. Regarding the design, the new Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale comes in a brand new “Rosso Mars” finish, which symbolizes Italy’s traditional racing red, as established at the beginning of last century in motor racing.
For those who don’t know, the dark green stood for Great Britain, blue was for France, white (and silver later on) represented Germany, white and blu stripes for USA, while red was the color of all race cars from Italy.
Moreover, the exterior offers matte black finish on the large rear spoiler, the engine hood and the front air intakes, while the design is completed by the forged wheels painted in high-gloss black. Still, if you don’t like the red color, you can choose the “Grigio Telesto” or “Bianco Monocerus” with the roof available in gloss black as an option. Inside, the car features the same black and red colors, while the materials used are Alcantara and carbon fiber.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale offers utmost excitement because of its relentless grip no matter what the road is like, thanks mainly to its all wheel drive.
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo is the only single brand racing series in the world that has all wheel drive cars and the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is truly worthy to take after its name. The car offers you the best driving experience with exciting cornering speeds and immediate and speedy response. On the road and on the track, the car is always precise, safe and stable.
The suspension has a layout that takes its inspiration from the exciting world of motor racing. The double aluminum wishbone helps guide the wheels, while the fixed steering gives you a closer feel of the road. Similar to the Gallardo Superleggera, the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale has a lot of potential and it certainly looks it as it looks closest to being a true race car. It also has 19-inch wheels that shave off 13 kilograms from the standard wheels that other Gallardo models have. Meanwhile, the bolts and wheel bearings are made from titanium, making them strong and light. You also have Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires on board.
Great braking power
The massive wheels are stopped by brakes that are meant to have unparalleled stopping power, as managed by the ESP stability control system. The ESP system comes as standard in all the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale. There are eight-piston aluminum calipers in the front axle, twice the number of pistons you find on the calipers of the rear axle. You have ventilated discs on the front and rear, measuring 365 millimeters and 356 millimeters, respectively. You can opt for a carbon-ceramic brake system, which measures 380 millimeter and 356 millimeters for the front and rear wheels.
Optional racing type equipment
And if you want to take the vehicle’s racing car look a little further, then you should opt for the tubular interior roll cage, fire extinguisher, and 4-point safety belts. You can also opt for the satellite navigation system that has Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones, a front axle lifting system, and the anti-theft system.
