Looking for something different for your Lamborghini Gallardo ? Why not head into Germany ? In Ahlen you’ll be able to have your ‘standard’ Gallardo, if there even is such a thing, transformed into a special Edo Competition version …
A few numbers perhaps ?
Max. Horsepower : 550 Bhp (404 kW) at 7800 rpm
Max. torque : 540 Nm at 4500 rpm
Top speed : 328 Km/h
0 – 100 Km/h : 4.2 sec
0 – 200 Km/h : 12.5 sec
Those are some pretty impressive digits when comparing to the factory Gallardo with 500 Bhp and 510 Nm reaching a top speed of 315 Km/h, this Edo Competition version even ‘shaves’ a full two seconds off of the 0 – 200 Km/h time …
Those figures have their origin in some finely tuned parts that are mounted on this ‘personal’ Gallardo, the 50 Bhp increase comes from a special ‘100 Cells sport’ catalytic convertor, a Carbon Fiber air-box on the engine and some fine modification of the electronics controlling the V10 engine.
The Gallardo Edo Competition features large 19 inch wheels with 235/35 ZR 19 at the front and 295/30 ZR 19 Pirelli P Zero’s at the rear, these custom wheels are finished in black and have the Edo Competition scripting done color coded to the car … and they also have a tire pressure system installed to keep you from driving these magnificent rims with a flat !
The car is lowered about 15mm with a special suspension kit, and to get the car to a standstill if needed you now have 8 caliper, 365mm discs at the front and 4 caliper, 335mm discs at the rear, with ABS and ESP naturally … not everyone is a race driver right ?
On the outside there are also some tinted turn signal lenses and the rear diffuser is color coded to the rest of the bodywork … not added spoilers or wide whee larches on the Edo Competition Gallardo, just some mild touches here and there are all it took to create a one of a kind Lamborghini.
A really nice option is the fact that you can actually control the sound (or loudness) of the exhaust system with a button inside the car … how does that sound to you ?
