Lamborghini unveiled the most successful super sports car of its entire history with a new design – even more aggressive, and more extreme: the new Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica at the 2012 Paris Motorshow Automobili. The new Gallardo models will be available at Lamborghini dealerships from November 2012.
The new Gallardo LP 560-4 – equipped with permanent four wheel drive- has a new front end and a new rear while top models in the Gallardo line-up,the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, will be offered also as the further enhanced Edizione Tecnica. The six models of the Gallardo family are now clearly differentiated and can be customized perfectly to suit every type of driver.
The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
The unique design with its razor-sharp lines is one of the key factors of the Gallardo.
The Gallardo design has now been further accentuated in the new Gallardo LP 560-4. The new front end is characterized by triangular and trapezoidal forms – two shapes that are highly typical of the Lamborghini design language. Divided by diagonal elements in body color and in black, the overall look of the front end is broader and more forceful, giving it an even stronger bond with the road.
New 19-inch “Apollo polished” alloy wheels, painted in matt black and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished silver helps to complete the design.
The dynamic rear end comes with triangle and trapezoid characteristic design elements. The air outlet for the power unit now has now a wider surface area, which improves its thermodynamic efficiency. A new Style Package is available as an option and offers high-gloss black paintwork on the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and the transverse element of the rear trim to give the Gallardo LP 560-4 an even more powerful look.
The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica
With a more determined lightweight design, a focus on high performance and a purist look, the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante mark the very pinnacle of the Gallardo family. As Edizione Tecnica, they benefit from a further improved equipment level and an even more individual look.
Features of the Edizione Tecnica include the fixed high rear wing, as well as brakes in carbon-ceramic technology. They combine low weight with outstanding fade resistance and durability. The power to weight ratio down to an outstanding 2,35 allows the car to be taken as one of the best references in the segment.
The Edizione Tecnica underscore sits very special look with three new exclusive optional color combinations, whereby the entire roof arch and front air intakes are painted in a contrast color. The available shades are: Nero Nemesis (matt black) body with Arancio Argos (orange) pillars and front air intakes, Bianco Canopus (matt white) body with Arancio Argos pillars and front air intakes, and Arancio Argos body with Nero Nemesis pillars and front air intakes.
The Gallardo four-wheel drive, the two-wheel drive Gallardo LP 550-2 in Coupe and Spyder format are still available.
