presented at Frankfurt Auto Show
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo
Frankfurt, Germany -With the Gallardo LP
570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, Automobili Lamborghini is bringing motor
racing excitement directly to the road. This new and most extreme top
model in the Gallardo lineup is based on the successful race car from
the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world’s fastest single-make
The car will be produced in a limited run
of 150 numbered units
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo
championship brings professional racers and gentlemen drivers
face-to-face in fiercely fought battles on Europe’s most challenging
racetracks such as Monza, Silverstone and Hockenheim.
There are many
similarities between the racing and road versions of this super sports
car. For example, they both share the same V10 powerplant, which is used
in the racing version with no modifications.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale boasts a maximum dry weight
of 1340 kilograms. It beats the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4 by 70
kilograms, which gives the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale a
stunning power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per HP for breathtaking
It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h
just 10.4 seconds later. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 320
"Rosso Mars" stands for Italy’s racing tradition
The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale sports a brand new "Rosso Mars"
finish that underscores the special connection between ultimate race
track performance and Lamborghini’s "Italianness". The "Rosso Mars"
color symbolizes Italy’s traditional racing red, as established at the
beginning of last century in motor racing, when the home nations of the
competitors were indicated by the color of the paint on the vehicles.
Dark green stood for Great Britain, blue was for France, white (and
silver later on) represented Germany, white and blu stripes for USA, and
red was the color of all race cars from Italy.
Like the Super Trofeo competition version, the new Super Trofeo Stradale
is based on the Gallardo Superleggera technical approach. 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 V10’s unique firing
order delivers the striking sound you hear in motor racing.
Like the race car, the Gallardo Super
Trofeo Stradale offers the robotized e-gear six-speed transmission
controlled by steering wheel paddles as standard equipment. This
electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears smoothly
and much faster than any human being could. And for maximum acceleration
from a standing start, the transmission can be set to the “Thrust Mode”
– a program that allows to reach the best performance possible executing
a racing start with minimal tire slippage at an initial engine speed of
approximately 5000 rpm.
Every kilometer in the Gallardo LP 570-4
Super Trofeo Stradale is packed with sheer excitement, in part due to
its unrelenting grip in virtually all situations thanks to all-wheel
drive. At the end of the day, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo is the only
single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel drive
race cars. The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is a highly concentrated
driving machine offering a truly stunning driving experience with
breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. Its road
manners are always precise, stable and completely safe.
