I'm sure you agree the Lamborghini Gallaro Super Trofeo Stradale is a very impressive looking car right from the factory floor, a limited edition version of the LP570-4 Superleggera only available in the new Rosso Mars shade and in white or grey ... this Super Trofeo Stradale distinguishes itself from the regular Superleggera by a special rear wing taken from the actual Blancpain Super Trofeo race car ... and while Lamborghini was mounting the wing they also decided to use the beautiful engine cover on the Super Trofeo Stradale too ... uncluding the quick release fixtures.
But what if the exclusive Super Trofeo Stradale just isn't extreme enough for you? In that case you have two options ... you either pay a visit to Reiter Engineering and have the team of Hans Reiter install their Strada kit on your Gallardo, be it an LP560-4 or an LP560-4 Spyder. Or you opt for this latest package unveiled by German based RENM Performance which takes the factory original Super Trofeo Stradale to a totally different level ... both in looks and in power output.
We've learned about RENM Performance back in July 2012 when they showed some 3D renderings on an Aventador LE-C ... full name the RENM Performance Aventador Limited Edition Corsa, a design concept that took the styling of the Aventador J that was unveiled by Lamborghini in March 2012 on the Geneva Auto Show as a one-off super exotic barchetta model ... the RENM Aventador LE-C received a magnificent front bumper, massive side skirts and a totally different rear section that all looked closely based on the Lamborghini Aventador J model ... right up to today I haven't seen any photos of an actual completed Aventador LE-C ...
Back to the Gallardo model now, this model has been finished and we've even seen a video showcasing this RENM Performance Gallardo STS-700, which in fact is an extensive package created by RENM Performance to raise the performance and dynamics of a factory original Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale to a totally new level.
The first thing you notice about this car is the body kit, made entirely from carbon fiber it includes a new front bumper, massive side skirts, a big rear diffuser and modified struts for the original rear wing that raise it higher up in the air ... this body kit makes the Super Trofeo Stradale look almost identical to the pre-2013 Blancpain Super Trofeo race car.
Add to this a modified suspension that lowers the car even further to the ground, special lightweight racing wheels made from magnesium and wearing semi-slick racing tires covering carbon ceramic disk brakes and you end up with a setup that is very close to an actual race car ... but which still is fully street legal.
Perhaps less eye-catching are the modifications to the 570hp V10 engine found underneath the great looking, quick release engine cover ... including titanium connecting rods, custom billet pistons, crankshafts and camshafts, big bore titanium inlets, exhaust valves and ports. The combustion chambers and exhaust manifolds are also enlarged and receive additional fuel injectors while the cooling for both oil and water are upgraded too ... add a valve controlled titanium exhaust system that actively decreases back pressure and offers improved air flow together with a weight decrease of 19kgs and you end up with a V10 engine pumping out a healthy 700 PS at 8,500rpm.
This power increase translates into very impressive performance figures ... a 0 to 100Km/h acceleration is now measured at 3.2 seconds while the top speed is well over 330Km/h according to Neil Meka, CEO of RENM Performance ... safe to say this STS-700 will be able to keep up with an Aventador LP700-4 in just about any condition it encounters.
With all that extra power and track dynamics available it would be very unwise not to bring the braking system up to specs, so RENM performance installed modified carbon ceramic disks with higher friction pads. A lower weight in rotating mass is a nice side effect of this new kit, add modified cooling chambers and air intakes and there is almost no brake fading left. Furthermore the track has been widened and Ohlins three-way adjustable dampers are mounted which are perfect for both track and road use, a fully adjustable anti-roll bar is present up front while still fully compatible with the OEM front ride height adjustment.
The outside of this RENM Performance STS-700 is still finished in the bright Rosso Mars shade first seen on the Super Trofeo Stradale, again combined with matte black ... a combination that is also present inside this Raging Bull, red and black Alcantara upholstery is found on the lightweight seats, complete with a four point seat belt system fixed onto a customized roll cage.
If you are looking into adding this car to your collection ... you're too late, it is already sold to a Brazilian based enthusiast which really likes the dramatically improved driving experience as a result from the high-grade performance upgrades ... but I'm sure you'll be able to convince RENM Performance to create another one ...
