The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is a remarkable machine, combining aggressive design with Italian craftsmanship and performance that rivals its fiercest competitors. Introduced in 2010, the Gallardo Superleggera was the lightweight and track-focused version of the standard Gallardo, making it an even more formidable sports car.

Automobili Lamborghini SpA not only reduced weight on this new lightweight model, but they also changed lots of other thing, like the power output from the engine for instance, now up to 570 Bhp and still delivered to all four wheels I’m sure they could have cut even more weight by making it a rear wheel drive model, that that is only available on the limited edition LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, yet another masterpiece on wheels.

Back in 2007 the Gallardo Superleggera managed to shed about 100 kg, but this time the LP570-4 puts about 70 kg less on the scales, but with an overall weight of a mere 1340 kg it is still the lightest street legal Lamborghini available today.

I mention street legal here because naturally the Super Trofeo would trump them all, and as a matter of speaking a lot of knowledge gained from this fastest one-make championship has been transferred into the new LP570-4 Superleggera to make the experience of driving it even more intense.

Design and Aesthetics

On the outside you can’t mistake this Superleggera edition, the entire front has been modified beautifully, the black parts contrast very well with the rest of the bodywork, which in case of the Superleggera is only available in a very select collection of colors: Verde Ithaca, Giallo Midas, Arancio Borealis, Grigio Telesto, Nero Noctis and Bianco Monocerus. Add to this the color coded interior stitching over the black alcantara upholstery and you’ve got one really nice car.

Swing around to the rear and you are greeted by a tall rear wing, naturally finished in bright carbon fiber, but also the engine cover with see-through section is finished in this lightweight material further down we see the diffuser in the same material surrounding no less than four massive exhaust pipes just to make this ‘little’ Lamborghini even more menacing.

The sound emitting from these tailpipes is sheer music when you hurl this motorcar to 200 Km/h in only 10.2 seconds and the fun isn’t over until the speedometer shows a proud 325 Km/h top speed, all the time you are sitting in some of the most magnificent alcantara seats ever conceived and you are looking an awesome combination of alcantara and carbon fiber on the dashboard, central console and steering wheel.

All this power is transmitted to the road over a brand new set of five spoke wheels standing a massive 19 inch tall and shod with 235 and 295 at the front and rear respectively. Note that the Superleggera is standing proud on specifically developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa rubber with a close pedigree to racing tires.

Just in case you get cold sweat about stopping all this additional force you can opt for a set of carbon ceramic discs from the options catalog, in which you also find a four-point seat belt system, a fire extinguisher and even a steel roll cage in case something goes wrong along the way. Naturally color coded brake calipers and that stunning, high rear wing are also available from Sant’Agata but in case you just want something really different you’ll have to turn your attention to the “Ad Personam” dictionary, they can make all your dreams come true.

Performance and Handling

The Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera boasts impressive performance figures, thanks to its powerful 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 570 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed E-gear automated manual transmission, which delivers rapid gear changes and helps the car achieve a 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds. The Superleggera’s top speed is an impressive 202 mph.

The LP570-4 Superleggera benefits from an all-wheel-drive system that provides excellent traction and grip, enhancing the car’s handling capabilities, especially when cornering or driving on challenging surfaces. This system ensures that the power is distributed evenly between the front and rear wheels, enabling the car to maintain stability and control even during high-speed maneuvers.

A primary focus of the Superleggera was to reduce weight, which significantly improves the car’s handling characteristics. With a curb weight of around 2,954 lbs, the Superleggera is about 154 lbs lighter than the standard Gallardo. This weight reduction was achieved through the extensive use of carbon fiber and lightweight materials, which also contributes to the car’s agility and responsiveness.

The suspension system in the LP570-4 Superleggera has been fine-tuned for optimal performance, striking a balance between comfort and handling. It features an adjustable anti-roll bar and double-wishbone suspension, which ensures that the car remains planted during high-speed cornering and provides a more composed ride when driving on uneven surfaces.

The braking system on the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera consists of ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs that provide exceptional stopping power and fade resistance. This helps to ensure that the car remains stable and secure during hard braking.


The base MSRP of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera varied depending on the model year. For instance, the 2012 Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera had a base MSRP of $237,600, while the 2014 Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Tecnica had a base MSRP of $241,200. Keep in mind that these figures are for the base models and do not account for optional features or packages, which could increase the price.


The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is an impressive combination of aggressive design, top-tier performance, and Italian craftsmanship. It offers an exhilarating driving experience that few other cars can match, making it a fantastic option for those seeking a high-performance sports car with a unique aesthetic. However, those looking for a more practical or luxurious vehicle may want to consider other options in the Lamborghini lineup.
