Lamborghini shows off Gallardo LP550-2

Pictures with what looks like to be the LP550-2 Lamborghini Gallardo have leaked on the network ahead of the official introduction of the car. Although the details are scarce, the naming scheme of Lamborghini is suggesting the LP550-2 model will have rear-wheel drive and 550 horsepower.

Gallardo LP560-4 inspired, this LP550-2 gets a bit de-tuned variant of the 5.2L V10 by Lamborghini. The LP-550-2 nixes also the all-wheel driving system of LP560-4 and e-Gear transmission, with omissions resulting in a weight saving of 66 pound.

Performance numbers haven't got unveiled yet, but you should expect a zero-sixty time on the mid-three 2nd area and a maximum speed flirting having 200mph. Production expected at 250 cars. This Gallardo LP550-2 from Lamborghini could make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
