To combat the imminent threat from Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren, Lamborghini have launched the stunning second generation Gallardo Superleggera. Designated the LP570-4 (570PS, and still 4 wheel drive), the Superleggera (aka Super Light) certainly lives up to itís name. An Aluminium frame, carbon fibre panels and seats, forged alloys and polycarbonate windows shed over 65Kg from the ístandardí Gallardo LP560. With an extra 10bhp transmitted through the 6-speed e-gear shift, this weight loss drops the 0-60mph sprint to just 3.3 sec with a 202mph maximum, which just happens to be identical performance to arch rival the 458 Italia.
Priced at £180k in the UK, the LP570-4 is competitive with itís rivals, but the optional (and unnecessary) carbon brakes seem expensive at £14k. The Superleggera is the fastest Gallardo to date and may well prove to be the greatest Lambo of all.
