Lamborghini debuted its newest ultra-lightweight speed demon – the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera at Geneva auto show.

According to Lamborghini, the Superleggera is the closest thing to a street-legal race car it makes and says it drew inspiration and technical development from its racing series, the Blancpain Super Trofeo. Lamborghini first applied the “lighter is better” approach to the compact Gallardo back in 2007, aptly naming the special model the Superleggera, or “super-light.” Extensive use of carbon-fiber and the deletion of such frivolities as a radio and cup holders knocked more than 200 pounds off of the curb weight, allowing the stripped-down.

Lamborghini is bringing back the Superleggera, and it’s lighter and wilder than everCompared with the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4, the weight of the Gallardo Superleggera has been trimmed by 70 kilograms (154 lb). The super sportscar from Sant’s Agata Bolognese boasts a dry weight of no more than 1340 kilograms (2954 lb).

Superleggera is built on the success of the original and with lessons learned in the new, one-make Lamborghini Super Trofeo racing series,. The speed freaks in Sant’Agata went over the Gallardo, now in a new generation known as the LP 560-4, with a fine-tooth comb and managed to shave 38 more pounds over the first Gallardo Superleggera, dropping the curb weight to just 2954 pounds and making it the lightest Lamborghini available,

It is powered by a Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V10 engine, which makes 398 pound-feet of torque. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera can reach 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and flies past the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark only 10.2 seconds later, ultimately reaching 325 km/h (202 mph). The engine with “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” gasoline direct injection also boasts an impressive degree of efficiency. Its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 20,5 percent compared to the previous model.. .

The new Superleggera follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, which launched in 2007. It gets all-wheel drive and runs on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Pirellis.
