A few days ago Lamborghini released a teaser for a new sportscar they will be unveiling at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Turns out it is an ultimate version of the Gallardo.
By ‘Ultimate’ here we mean the road going version of the Super Trofeo Gallardo, a racing car for the company’s one-make racing series. This car will be an even harder, tauter version of the Superleggera and features an almost completely stripped-out interior.
It will be powered by the same 562-bhp V10 engine but the key to its performance is excessive lightness. The Gallardo ST will be 40 kg lighter than the SL. The car will also get a new aerodynamic kit that makes it look like the Trofeo as well. So to all intents and purposes, it is a full-on racing car.
They will only make 30 examples of this car, each with an estimated price £200,000, which sounds a bit too much for a track toy which is practically useless on the road! But it will be the last hurrah for the Gallardo and therefore very special.
The Gallardo will be replaced by the Cabrera in 2013.
