2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse

SANT’AGATA BOLOGNESE, Italy — The 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, an extreme model inspired by the LP 570-4 Super Trofeo single-series racecar, will make its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Both cars are based on the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is the only single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel-drive racecars. The Squadra Corse name comes from the new department at Lamborghini Automobili now in charge of all motorsports activities.

The street-legal Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse shares components with the Super Trofeo, including the 570-horsepower V10, carbon-fiber rear wing and removable engine hood. The engine is linked to a standard automated-manual e-gear six-speed transmission shifted via steering-wheel paddles.  Thanks to a variety of weight-saving measures, the newest Lamborghini screams from zero to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds.  Exterior cues that underscore the car’s racing heritage include a decal strip in green, white and red: the colors of the Italian flag.  In the cabin, the door panels, racing seats and center console cover are made from carbon fiber.
