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 one-make series.
This new Gallardo version will have its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany next month.
The name Squadra Corse refers to the recently-founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all
motor sport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America
where 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 with 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, high-speed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable
engine hood with quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are
some other components on the Squadra Corse.
Lightweight construction through consistent use of carbon fibre
Together with aluminium, carbon fibre is the basis behind the extremely lightweight construction of the new Gallardo
top model. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse boasts a dry weight of 1,340 kilogrammes, 70 less than the already lean
Gallardo LP 560-4, which gives the Squadra Corse a stunning power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilogrammes 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
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 419kW, equivalent to 570hp, which is fully available at 8,000 rpm. The
V10’s unique firing order delivers the striking sound that is heard in motor racing. Like the race car, the Gallardo
Squadra Corse comes as standard with the robotised e-gear six-speed transmission operated by steering wheel paddles. This
electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears smoothly and much faster than any pro-driver could. Every
kilometre in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is packed with sheer excitement, in part due to its unrelenting grip in
virtually all situations thanks to its all-wheel drive.
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 with breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. With responsible driving its road manners are
always precise, stable and safe.
Respresenting Italian racing
The Lamborghini 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
colours 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 with a
matt black finish on the large rear wing with contrasts in body colour. 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
Minimalist sporty interior
Extremely lightweight carbon fibre and Alcantara® 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 centre console cover are made from carbon fibre, a technology in which Lamborghini has achieved
world-leading expertise. Carbon is also used for the handbrake frame, the middle of the centre console, the lower rim of
the steering 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 with the opportunity of a first
