AUTOMOBILI LAMBORGHINI PUSHES NEED FOR SPEED TO NEW LEVELS WITH GALLARDO SUPERLEGGERA TRACK DAY AT LE BELLE MACCHINE d'ITALIA
Automobili Lamborghini Brings Super-Light V10 Engine Super car to Pocono Raceway for Exhilarating Track Day Culminating Stunning Showcase of Italian Speed and Beauty
Each year in the picturesque Pocono Mountains at the exclusive Skytop Lodge and Pocono Raceway, the annual Le Belle Macchine d'Italia plays host to honored guests who get a chance to view and drive some of the most uncompromising, rarest Italian sports cars ever conceived. As Le Belle Macchine d'Italia celebrates the allure of these fine Italian automobiles from June 22nd - 24th, legendary automaker Automobili Lamborghini will prepare an exclusive opportunity of its own showcasing the current pinnacle of super car performance and luxury, the brand new Gallardo Superleggera.
The sleek new Gallardo Superleggera will be on display Saturday, June 23rd at the event center-stage for guests to see the undeniable perfection of one of the finest super cars ever created. During this VIP viewing, guests will get a rare chance to see one of the fastest cars on earth at rest and then be offered a phenomenal opportunity to get an extreme taste of Italy. In exchange for charitable donations, guests are invited on a blisteringly fast Gallardo Superleggera track driving experience.
Contributors will be given the advanced opportunity to experience driving in the Superleggera even before cars are available to North American buyers with all proceeds going directly to the Pan-Mass Challenge supporting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Contributors will be accompanied by official Automobili Lamborghini test drivers streaking through turns and straightaways, burning hot laps with some of the most talented drivers in the world.
Conceived with no compromises in mind, Lamborghini took the Gallardo platform and made the car lighter by dropping superfluous weight and added 10 more horsepower to the mid-mounted V10 engine to total a blisteringly fast 530 horsepower. The fierce package makes the stealthy Superleggera post a sharp 3.8 second 0-100 kilometer time, shaving a full 0.2 seconds off an already impressive time.
In addition to the brand new Gallardo Superleggera, the celebration also plans to have a special display of all new Lamborghini vehicles. Automobili Lamborghini currently produces the V12 Murciélago LP640 coupe and roadster in addition to the convertible Gallardo Spyder and coupe models.
