2011 Lamborghini Gallardo 570-4 Superleggera ready for Geneva reveal

The 2010 Geneva Motor Show is about to start and one of the big cars to be revealed early on is the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. It’s the first variant to the original Gallardo Superleggera (meaning “superlight” in Italian) that debuted in 2007 and will take its place at the top Gallardo range.

The new 570-4 Superleggera is 70 kilograms, lighter than the Gallardo Superleggera 560-4 below it. Its dry weight is just 1,339 kgs, which itself is below the last superlight Gallardo at 1,430 kgs. The outgoing model was powered by a 5.0 litre V10 fury packing 530 horsepower but the new 570-4 model is motiovated by a direct-injected 5.2-litre V10 of the same origin making its namesake 570 hp. Add the lighter weight to the increased power and you get a 0-100 km/h time of 3.4 seconds and top speed of 325 km/h.

Liberal doses of carbon fibre help lighten the special Lambo, while 19-inch forged aluminum wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero Corsa rubber, optional carbon ceramic disc brakes, permanent all-wheel drive and a six-speed e-gear transmission finish off the high-tech performance hardware.
