Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse - Race track emotion direct to the road

With the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, Automobili Lamborghini brings race track emotion directly to the road. It delivers high performance and brings the fascination of motor racing to the street-legal world. This new and most extreme model in the Gallardo line-up is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world's fastest onemake series. The car will have its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The name Squadra Corse refers to the recently-founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America where gentlemen drivers battle face-to-face in fierce contests on the most challenging racetracks.

The new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars. Both share the same V10 engine, which is used in the racing version wîth no modifications. Likewise, the Squadra Corse has the same rear wing for greater aerodynamic load – achieving, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 – for increased dynamic stability during tight, highspeed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood wîth quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are a host of other components on the Squadra Corse.

Lightweight construction through consistent use of carbon fiber
Together wîth aluminum, carbon fiber is the basis behind the extremely lightweight construction of the new Gallardo new top model. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse boasts a dry weight of 1340 kilograms, 70 less than the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4, which gives the Squadra Corse a stunning power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per hp for breathtaking performance. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in just 10.4 seconds. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 320 Km/h. The production-standard carbon-ceramic brake system guarantees unmatched stopping power.

The technology and the powertrain
Like the Super Trofeo competition version, the new Squadra Corse is based on the technical underpinnings of the Gallardo Superleggera. The V10 engine generates 570 hp, equivalent to 419 kW, which is fully available at 8,000 rpm. The V10's unique firing order delivers the striking sound you hear in motor racing. Like the race car, the Gallardo Squadra Corse comes as standard wîth the robotized e-gear six-speed transmission operated by §teering wheel paddles. This electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears smoothly and much faster than any pro driver could. Every kilometer in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is packed wîth sheer excitement, in part due to its unrelenting grip in virtually all situations thanks to its all-wheel drive concept.

Vital Stats

6-speed Manual
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is the only single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel drive race cars. The Gallardo Squadra Corse is a highly concentrated driving machine offering a truly stunning driving experience wîth breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. Its road manners are always precise, stable and completely safe.


Respresenting Italian racing
The Gallardo Squadra Corse shows its ultimate racing performance even in its exterior design – clearly attesting its committment to its Italian homeland. A decal strip along the flank displays green, white and red, the colors of the Italian flag. The Squadra Corse is available in Giallo Midas (yellow), Bianco Monocerus (white), Grigio Thalasso (grey) and in Rosso Mars (red). The exterior look of the Gallardo Squadra Corse is perfectly accented wîth a matte black finish on the large rear wing wîth contrasts in body color. The hood, front air intakes, rear diffuser and 19-inch forged wheels are painted in high-gloss black, while the mighty brakes callipers are available in red, black or yellow.

Minimalist sporty interior
Extremely lightweight carbon fiber and Alcantara®, the perfect combination of sporty minimalism, are the dominant materials inside the Squadra Corse. Alcantara graces the underside of the dashboard, the central panel of the seat cushion and the backrest. The door panels, the racing seats and the center console cover are made from carbon fiber, a technology in which Lamborghini has achieved world-leading expertise. Carbon is also used for the handbrake frame, the middle of the center console, the lower rim of the §teering wheel, the trim around the main and secondary instrument panels, the door handles, and the handle for opening the glove box. Comfort seats can be ordered in place of racing bucket seats.

Squadra Corse offers a new series of driving events
'Esperienza' events by the Squadra Corse deparment provide enthusiasts and prospects wîth the opportunity of a first test-drive and a glimpse inside the world of Lamborghini. The Lamborghini Academies, on both track and ice, provide driver training and the initial steps toward real-life racing. The Super Trofeo series offers the perfect first race experience for young and gentlemen drivers, wîth the Lamborghini GT3 for more seasoned racers wishing to compete wîth the Lamborghini marque worldwide.
