Some say the finest version of the Lamborghini Gallardo was the lightweight Superleggera version. That is debatable, since this car has an open-top version called Performante. But there is no doubt that Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera was the most trackable Gallardo, especially after some tinkering.
That is what Mcchip-DKR has done here. They have “tinkered” with the 5.2 liter V10 engine in Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and managed to free up some of the horses oppressed by rules and regulations regarding fuel consumption and efficiency. It’s not a big upgrade, but it will certainly enhance the Leggera’s performance on the race track by giving it more pulling power.
So this white Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera Lp570 came into Mcchip’s workshop with, as the name suggests, 570 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque. There it got fitted with a new software specifically developed for this car by DKR, and also a custom exhaust system with sport cats. The result is a boost in power to 604 horsepower and 573 Nm of peak torque.
These changes may seem simple, but due to the tight packaging of this car, as you can see in the picture, Mcchip had to drop the engine out to they could get to the ECU and work on the exhaust system. So here’s your chance to see the inner parts of the Gallardo. It’s like open heart surgery!
