Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale

The 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale boasts to be the most extreme Gallardo ever as it brings motor racing excitement directly to the road. It had its debut in Frankfurt and found its basis on the world's fastest single-make series, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super trofeo. One of the many similarities between these two supercars is that they both share the same V10 powerplant, with no modifications. The V10 powerplant generates 570 HP, equivalent to 419 kW, which is fully available at 8000 RPM. The maximum torque is equally impressive, with the torque curve peaking at 540 Nm at 6500 RPM. The robotized e-gear six-speed transmission controlled by steering wheel paddles as standard equipment was also borrowed from the race car. It will be a limited edition of only 150 numbered units. The rear spoiler of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, helps increase the aerodynamic load and it can be varied manually, thus allowing the driver to optimize the car's performance depending on the road or track conditions. The removable hood with a quick-release system is an element taken from the racing version, while both the spoiler and the hood were made of carbon fiber, hosting different components on the Super Trofeo Stradale. The consistent use of carbon fiber resulted in a lightweight construction of 1,340 kg, a 0-100 km/h sprint covered in a mere 3.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 320 km/h. The "Rosso Mars" finish of the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale symbolizes Italy's traditional racing red and shows the particular connection between Lamborghini's "Italianness" and the ultimate race track performance. The matte black finish constrasts with "Rosso Mars" paint and was used on the front air intakes, engine hood and the large rear spoiler, perfectly accentuating the exterior of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale.
Upon the customer's request, the new Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is also available in "Bianco Monocerus" or "Grigio Telesto" with the roof available in gloss black as an option.
The dominant features of the interior are defined by the combination between black and red, offering a sporty minimalism. Thus, Alcantara and extremely lightweight carbon fiber were the main materials used, covering the dashboard as well as the central part of the seat cushion and the backrest.
The massive wheels hide the brakes which are controlled by the ESP stability control system, providing unmatched stopping power.
