We knew that Lamborghini will eventually make a stripped out lightweight version of the new Gallardo LP 560-4, but news surfaces recently suggest that another version of the baby Lambo is in the works as well which will have 550 hp and will be two wheel drive. So presumably it’s called LP 550-2!
This is not going to be the SuperLeggera version of the Gallardo, mainly because the SL model should have more power than the standard car and it doesn’t.
It’ll have 550hp but it will be lighter than the 560-4 model because it’s only rear wheel drive so it has many mechanical parts less. On the downside, it shouldn’t be as poised and delicate to drive as the 560, however power only going to the rear will make much more fun, maybe a bit of a handful but quit thrilling!
If they ever put LP550r in production it’ll be limited to only 250 units and it will be cheaper than the LP560 by almost 10 percent, so it makes more sense to consider it as a discount version of the Gallardo rather than a light weight track-focused car such as SuperLeggera.
