The Ultimate Guide to the Lamborghini Gallardo Supperleggera

LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO SUPERLEGGERA 570-4 – THE BABY LAMBO SHEDS WEIGHT AND ADDS POWER

Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. The name of this car is almost a sentence all by itself. This, of course, is the lightweight version of the Gallardo 560-4, just as the original Superleggera was to the first version of the Gallardo. You can expect carbon fibre to permeate nearly every surface of the car, inside and out. Because weight is the enemy of performance, this is the Gallardo for those needing to get around as quickly as possible.

THE LIGHTEST LAMBORGHINI

To achieve its weight savings, Lamborghini threw carbon fibre nearly everywhere you look. In fact, the Italian carmaker even collaborated with Boeing to find new and innovative carbon production methods. Lighter wheels, meanwhile, save 18 kg, while a thinner windscreen glass and the use of plastic instead of glass for the rear screen helps out as well. The resulting car weighs in at 1,520 kilos, or about 70 kgs lighter than the 560-4. Incredibly, this made the LP 570-4 Superleggera the lightest production Lamborghini on sale, even lighter than the two-wheel drive LP550-2 Balboni. Buyers were given the choice of either a manual or E-gear transmission, with nearly all takers choosing the faster, automated gearbox.

A TINY POWER RISE

A slight 10 bhp bump puts the 5.2-litre V10s output at 562 bhp, while torque remains the same at 398 lb-ft. Lamborghini states the top speed is 202 mph, and the sprint to 60 has been measured at somewhere between 3.2 and 3.5 seconds. They also pointed out that the lighter kerb weight means the Superleggera is less thirsty than before, although if you must ask about fuel economy, this probably isn’t the car for you. Those desiring a track toy will be heartened to know that the suspension has been firmed up in the Superleggera, and that carbon-ceramic brakes were optional as well.

CONCLUSION

At £175,000, the LP 570-4 Superleggera competed directly against the 458 Italia, although these cars are quite different in nature. The Lambo is the big, understeering hammer to the Ferrari’s delicate oversteering scalpel. Both will get the job done, and quickly, but they appeal to drivers for completely different reasons. Still, it will put a smile on your face no matte what, and that’s really what matters in a Lamborghini.
