The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse delivers high performance and brings
the fascination of motor racing to the street-legal world. This new and most
extreme model in the Gallardo line-up is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the
successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world's
fastest one-make series.
The name Squadra Corse refers to the recently-founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America where gentlemen drivers battle face-to-face in fierce contests on the most challenging racetracks.
The Squadra Corse edition sprints from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.2 seconds and reaches 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 10.4 seconds. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 200 mph (320 km/h). The production-standard carbon-ceramic brake system guarantees unmatched stopping power.
The new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars. Both share the same V10 engine, which is used in the racing version with no modifications. Likewise, the Squadra Corse has the same rear wing for greater aerodynamic load - achieving, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 - for increased dynamic stability during tight, high-speed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood with quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are a host of other components on the Squadra Corse.
Minimalist Sporty Interior
Extremely lightweight carbon fiber and Alcantara, the perfect combination of sporty minimalism, are the dominant materials inside the Squadra Corse. Alcantara graces the underside of the dashboard, the central panel of the seat cushion and the backrest. The door panels, the racing seats and the center console cover are made from carbon fiber, a technology in which Lamborghini has achieved world-leading expertise. Carbon is also used for the handbrake frame, the middle of the center console, the lower rim of the steering wheel, the trim around the main and secondary instrument panels, the door handles, and the handle for opening the glove box. Comfort seats can be ordered in place of racing bucket seats.
