Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera at Geneva Show 2010

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera – pay more, get less. Less weight that is, because Superleggera in italian means Superlight. You get less glass because side, rear window, engine cover are all made of high quality polycarbonate. Less, because just about every interior panel and trim is carbon fibre or featherweight alcantara. To counterbalance all these negatives, we should mention you get more power from the V10, not a huge amount more; power is up to 570 as the model number suggests, but because of the 70kg weight loss that translates into faster nimbler handling and acceleration. Good enough for a claimed 3.4 seconds 0-62 mph (100kmh). Visually there are quite a few detail changes, with more aggressive front air scoops, rear diffuser and fixed rear wing. Notice the front air intakes are black on the side of the lower wings. There’s a distinctly new arrow shaped look being developed here; an evolution of the Gallardo’s front profile, which will no doubt appear on future variations of the car.
