The Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse is the last of the Gallardo breed, built as a send-off for the magnificent V10 supercar. With this one Lambo went for a motorsport theme, basing the car on the Super Trofeo racing model. So it was only appropriate that they show it off on the race track.
The Squadra Corse is the name of a new department in Lamborghini dealing with customer racing programs, namely the Super Trofeo cup. This model is an homage to the company’s rich motorsport pedigree.
Technically, the Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse is powered by the same engine you find in the Superleggera models, which is a 570 horsepower version of the old 5.2 liter V10. Even though it’s been through a sever weight loss program, Lambo decided to keep the all-wheel-drive system, and use a six-speed e-gear transmission instead of a simpler manual.
Weighing 1340 kg, the Squadra Corse goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h. The handling is tuned for track use, the breaks are fitted with carbon ceramic discs.
