The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera has just been unveiled with the Italian carmaker releasing the full details of the new model. The public premiere of the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera will take place at the Geneva auto show this week. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is powered by the 5.2 liters V10 engine that develops 570 hp at 8,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398,3 ft lbs) of torque at 6,500 rpm. This engine can take the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,4 seconds and to 200 km/h in 10.2 seconds. The top speed of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is rated by the carmaker at 325 km/h (202 mph).

The new Gallardo Superleggera is a highly-concentrated driving machine – it thrills with breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate feedback. Its handling is always precise, stable and predictable. The running gear layout is derived directly from Lamborghini’s motorsport experience. The suspension is aluminum double wishbones. The precise rack and pinion steering keeps the driver very closely connected with the road. The shock absorbers are extremely firm, and the anti-roll bars and suspension mounts have been further reinforced: these features enable the running gear to reach its full dynamic potential. No other model in the Gallardo range is as close to a race car as this one.
