Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale hits the stage
13 Septembre 2011
Following a bit of an early leak ahead of its actual debut on the eve of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, Lamborghini has gone ahead and pulled the sheets off its Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale for real.
And it's a beauty.
Looking rather fetching in its flawless coat of Rosso Mars paint, which the automaker proudly claims recognizes Italy's famous red racing cars, this latest version of Lambo's V10-powered supercar is based on the LP570-4 Blancpain Edition that was unveiled at last year's Paris Motor Show. That means it weighs 2,954 pounds and makes good use of its 570 horsepower to hit 0-100 km/h per hour in 3.4 seconds.
That massive rear spoiler is manually adjustable to help keep the wheels on the ground, and both it and the car's hood are crafted from carbon fiber. Lamborghini will happily plaster the interior with carbon goodness in place of the standard black and red motif, surely for an extra charge.
Only 150 of these special Gallardos are earmarked for production, in either the aforementioned red hue or, optionally, in Grigio Telesto or Bianco Monocerus.
