2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggerax

Now you can go starting to salivate with desire, because here comes another one of those wonders to which we are accustomed from Sant’Agata Bolognese. With all of you, the 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, the epitome of sportsmanship within the Gallardo range.

As the name implies, or rather I should say its name, this new sport, presented tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, is a twist regarding weights and masses within the Gallarado Lamborghini. You know, that to take away a kilo before giving me a horse.

To do this, from Lamborghini have made extensive use of carbon fiber, both outside and inside. With this material, have acquired reduce their total weight up to 1340 kilos, ie 70 kg less than its predecessor, becoming the lightest Lamborghini range.

Exterior of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

To the outside of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera Sant’Agata Bolognese engineers have not warmed the head to make pretty things. They have gone to live and useful in cars like this, minimize aerodynamic drag for better air penetration.

Which is not to say that the thing is a mess visually, much less. I think we all agree with me that you will be hard and aggressive aesthetics is one of the most beautiful things we have seen in recent years with the bull logo on the nose.

Her measurements are approximately the same as in the previous model. It measures 4.39 meters long, 1.90 meters wide and only 1.17 meters high. With that ratio of almost 2:1 in width / height, must be awesome live (well, as any Gallardo).

The exterior changes were studied in the wind tunnel. These focus on the front bumper with larger openings and most prominent forms. The changes will get more air to cool brakes and engine and added grip to the ground thanks to aerodynamics. It also added LED daytime running lights.

Low are completely closed and this change is attached to the new rear diffuser that houses four exhaust outlets larger diameter. In the back we see a new wing, of moderate size, but one option is larger and further improving aerodynamics.

The V10 5.2 RENUVA

Not only does man live aerodynamics and Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera also features news behind the driver’s seat. As I have imagined, the 570 refers to something, as in previous Lamborghini. No need to be very observant to notice that refer to the 570 hp V10 engine 5.2.

To reach that figure, climb the tachometer needle until 8,000 rpm, which surely will result in a heavenly sound. To get there, we have to pass before the 6,500 rpm, which is from where the V10 delivers its full potential with delivering 540 Nm.

Changes in the electronic control unit, weight reduction and system usage layered direct injection engine makes the V10 5.2 is 20% more efficient than previous models. Their emission figures not given, but if their consumption: 13.5 L/100 km.

It is associated with a gearbox e-gear six relations, managed electronically from steering handles. It has three driving modes, but just tell us in the press release the sportiest of them, the Thrust Mode.

Let’s performance. Does the 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and takes just 10.2 seconds to reach 200 km/h. Its maximum speed is 325 km/h. In short, all the changes you have made will be slightly faster than its predecessor.

Not that I’ve had a chance to drive it (most wanted), but this invites to lay hands on the screen and imagine how it will sound the start of that V10 engine 5.2. As seen in the picture, everything is upholstered in Alcantara, because it is a lighter material than the traditional leather.

But not only find Alcántara, but carbon fiber is one of the dominant material in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. The seats, central transmission tunnel, handles and door linings are of this material. All together, a reduction of 40 kg compared to LP560-4.

The weight reductions do not mean sacrificing everything, because this car still has air conditioning and power windows. No information if clear-able in option, but more of a customer who would pay for the take off, I’m sure.  For the safety of its occupants, offer roll bars, seat belts and fire extinguisher four points to avoid as far as possible.

As options, a customization package adds even more carbon fiber center console, instrument panel, the handbrake handle, the wheel and the door handles. As a touch of exclusivity, an LED light package illuminates the engine compartment, the interior and the entrance area.

In short, a Lamborghini and Lamborghini just know it. Price? What do I know? We’re going to put the long teeth at all
