Along with being the best selling model in the history of Lamborghini, this particular Gallardo LP 550-2 is an uncompromising driving machine. The high-revving V10 produces a staggering 550 horsepower, which is sent to the rear wheels; while torque figures come in at 398 lb-ft.Its running gear, with its mighty braking system, has a dedicated and exceptionally precise set-up, while its 19-inch wheels, Pirelli P Zero Corsa, clad in Pirelli sports rubber, are extremely light. The Lamborghini brings a whole new meaning to the term “super sportscar”.
Altogether, carbon-fiber components make up 40 (88 lb) of the 70 kilograms (154 lb) saved on the Gallardo Superleggera. In the interior, too, engineers aimed to reduce weight as much as possible. The elegance of every Lamborghini rests on both its extreme power and precise functionality.
