Lamborghini’s road going racecar.
One of the fastest single-make series in the world is the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. The racing series pits Lamborghini customers against each other behind the wheels of modified Lamborghini Gallardo racecars. To celebrate the success of the series, Lamborghini is introducing a limited production Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale model that gives customers a racecar experience on the street.
The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is the most extreme variant in the Gallardo model line. It boasts a very low weight of just 2,954 lbs (1340 kg), which is 154 lbs. (70 kg) lighter than the Gallardo LP 560-4. The lower overall weight can be attributed to the aluminum and carbon fiber construction of the sports car.
There are also many exterior similarities to the racecar. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale uses the same adjustable carbon composite rear spoiler that creates three times the amount of load as the Gallardo LP 560-4. The spoiler can be manually adjusted by the driver to produce the desired amount of downforce depending on the track. The same carbon fiber composite is used in the engine cover with quick release function. The front bumper features a more aggressive splitter and the rear features a large diffuser finished in gloss carbon fiber.
The entire Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale comes standard with a Rosso Mars exterior paint. The paint references the traditional Italian racing red paint that was given to Italian racing cars in traditional racing. Contrasting the Rosso Mars paint are high-gloss carbon fiber mirrors, rocker panel covers, and diffuser, while the rear spoiler is finished in matte black. For the first time ever, the brake calipers have been finished in red.
Powering the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is the same engine used in the race cars and the Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition. The 5.2-liter V-10 engine produces a maximum 570 horsepower at 8,000 RPM and 398 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 RPM with a unique firing order that creates a racecar exhaust note. The power is sent through the lightning-fast six-speed e-gear transmission to all four wheels, sending the sports car to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and 124 mph in 10.4 seconds, on its way to a 199 mph top speed.
All four corners of the Super Trofeo Stradale are controlled by double aluminum wishbones and an accurate rack-and-pinion steering setup gives drivers ultimate control. Lamborghini has fitted gloss black superlight 19-inch forged that save 28.6 lbs. (13 kg) over the standard wheels alone. Weight is further shed at the wheels by titanium wheel bearings and bolts. For optimal grip, Pirelli PZero Corsa tires are worn by the 19-inch wheels. Behind the wheels are eight-piston front and four-piston rear aluminum calipers grabbing 356- and 365 mm discs. Optionally, customers can order 380 mm front and 356 mm rear carbon ceramic discs.
Just like the racecars it’s based on, the Super Trofeo Stradale is designed with a minimalistic, no frills interior. Russo Mars alcantara is worn by the dashboard and seat inserts while black alcantara with red stitching is used in a number of other areas. Carbon fiber monocoque seats reduce weight and hug passengers through tight corners. Carbon fiber is also used in the door panels and center console. For a true racing feel, customers can order a tubular roll cage, four-point racing harness, and fire extinguisher.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale will be limited to a production of just 150 units in Russo Mars, Grigio Telesto, or Bianco Monocerus paint colors. Pricing has not been released.
