Gallardo Superleggera - the STORY

Lamborghini will present the Gallardo Superleggera at Geneva.

The latest news from Sant'Agata just reached us, Automobili Lamborghini SpA will display their latest evolution of the Gallardo at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, the Gallardo Superleggera, a car that was created for the most demanding customer.

Be removing about 100 Kg from the original Gallardo and installing a new, light weight exhaust system combined with a newly programmed ECU and a new throttle body, the V10 engine pumps out 530 Bhp in the Superleggera compared to 520 Bhp in the 'normal' Gallardo, which results in a 0 to 100 Km/h time of only 3.8 seconds, a full 0.2 seconds faster than the standard Gallardo.

This weight loss puts the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera at the top of the Gallardo model line and boasting a better weight to power ratio than any of it's direct competitors on the market today.

To achieve such figures a lot of parts on the Superleggera have been replaced, the inner door panels now are finished in clear Carbon Fiber, just like the central console and the hand brake lever to name but a few. The very sporty seats are no longer electrically adjustable and receive a dedicated stitching of their alcantara upholstery while the well known e-Gear is standard ... however the manual gearbox is available as a 'no cost' option.

The engine cover on the Superleggera has been replaced by a clear Carbon Fiber unit featuring a light weight Polycarbonate transparent section, also note that the windscreen has been made thinner to further reduce weight, the exterior rear view mirrors are also finished in Carbon Fiber and the rear bumper now also features a clear Carbon Fiber lower section as are the lower side sills.

A very nice touch is the new, rather high 'Superleggera' rear wing, again finished in Carbon Fiber to stay in line with the rest of the dedicated options on this new Superleggera that will be built in more limited numbers compared to the standard Gallardo.

To further underline the 'sporty' feel of this new Gallardo Superleggera there is even the option of having the preparation done so you are able to fit a full roll-over bar inside the Gallardo Superleggera, how's that about racing style for the road ?

The Gallardo Superleggera can be ordered at your local dealership from March at a 20% higher price compared to the standard Gallardo, delivery should start towards the summer of 2007, but expect the waiting list to grow steadily, a lot of people have been waiting for this kind of 'Super' Gallardo over the last few years, so I think the orders will start flooding in very quickly.
