Default Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale

Stephan Winkelmann,
President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., is presenting at the
Volkswagen Group Night in Frankfurt the most extreme Gallardo ever: the
Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. Automobili Lamborghini is
bringing motor racing excitement directly to the road. This new and most
extreme top model in the Gallardo lineup is based on the successful race car
from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world’s fastest singlemake
series.
The car will be produced in a limited run of 150 numbered units.
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championship brings professional
racers and gentlemen drivers face-to-face in fiercely fought battles on
Europe’s most challenging racetracks such as Monza, Silverstone and
Hockenheim. There are many similarities between the racing and road
versions of this super sports car. For example, they both share the same V10
powerplant, which is used in the racing version with no modifications.
An enormous and manually variable rear spoiler for increased dynamic
load
Right from first glance, these similarities are even more evident in the new
Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. In fact, it is equipped with the
same rear spoiler that offers greater aerodynamic load – reaching in the best
aerodynamic condition 3 times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 – for
increased dynamic stability during tight, high-speed driving. As in the race
cars, the rear spoiler can be varied manually in order to let the driver
optimize the car’s performance according to the track or road
characteristics.
Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable
engine hood with quick-release system. Both the spoiler and the hood are of
course made of carbon composite material, as are a host of other
components on the SuperTrofeo Stradale. Together with aluminum, carbon
fiber is the basis behind the extremely lightweight construction of Gallardo’s
new top model.

Lightweight construction through consistent use of carbon fiber
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale boasts a maximum dry weight of
1340 kilograms. It beats the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4 by 70 kilograms,
which gives the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale a stunning power-toweight
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 just 10.4
seconds later. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 320 Km/h.
“Rosso Mars” stands for Italy’s racing tradition
The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale sports a brand new “Rosso Mars” finish
that underscores the special connection between ultimate race track
performance and Lamborghini’s “Italianness”. The “Rosso Mars” color
symbolizes Italy’s traditional racing red, as established at the beginning of last
century in motor racing, when the home nations of the competitors were
indicated by the color of the paint on the vehicles. Dark green stood for Great
Britain, blue was for France, white (and silver later on) represented Germany,
white and blu stripes for USA, and red was the color of all race cars from Italy.
Red, black and carbon fiber characterize the exterior
The exterior appearance of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is
perfectly accentuated by a matte black finish on the large rear spoiler, the
engine hood and the front air intakes, which contrasts with the “Rosso Mars”
paint. The forged wheels are painted in high-gloss black, a color that is also
available on the roof as an option. The rocker panel covers, impressive rear
diffuser and outside mirror housings are made of carbon fiber polished to a
high gloss, while the brake calipers are accented in red for the first time on a
Lamborghini. It’s a perfect match with the exterior color and racing concept of
this new super sports car. And besides the historically suggestive “Rosso Mars”,
the new Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is also available upon request in “Grigio
Telesto” or “Bianco Monocerus” with the roof available in gloss black as an
option, as mentioned above.
Minimalist sporty interior
Black and red, the perfect combination of sporty minimalism, are the dominant
shades inside the Super Trofeo Stradale. The most broadly used materials are
Alcantara - in “Rosso Mars” on the underside of the dashboard, the central part
of the seat cushion and the backrest - and extremely lightweight carbon fiber.
Black Alcantara with contrasting red top-stitching is used to finish the other
parts of the interior. The steering wheel is upholstered in black suede and also
features red top-stitching. The door panels, the monocoque racing seats and
the center console cover are made of carbon fiber, the construction of which
3
Lamborghini has achieved a world-leading expertise. Discreet sporty accents
are provided by dark chrome visible metal parts.
Upon request, an interior layout including elements made of carbon fiber, such
as the handbrake frame, the middle of the center console, the lower rim of the
steering wheel, the decorative frames around the main and secondary
instrument panels, the door handles, and the handle for opening the glove box
(also available upon request), can be ordered.
Phenomenal powerplant
Like the Super Trofeo competition version, the new Super Trofeo Stradale is
based on the Gallardo Superleggera technical approach. The V10 powerplant
generates 570 HP, equivalent to 419 kW, which is fully available at 8000 RPM.
The maximum torque is equally impressive, with the torque curve peaking at
540 Nm at 6500 RPM. The V10’s unique firing order delivers the striking sound
you hear in motor racing.
Transmission “race tested” in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo
championship series
Like the race car, the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale offers the robotized egear
six-speed transmission controlled by steering wheel paddles as standard
equipment. This electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears
smoothly and much faster than any human being could. And for maximum
acceleration from a standing start, the transmission can be set to the “Thrust
Mode” – a program that allows to reach the best performance possible
executing a racing start with minimal tire slippage at an initial engine speed of
approximately 5000 rpm.
Permanent all-wheel drive for maximum traction in any situation
Every kilometer in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is packed with
sheer excitement, in part due to its unrelenting grip in virtually all situations
thanks to all-wheel drive. At the end of the day, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo
is the only single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel drive
race cars. The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is a highly concentrated driving
machine offering a truly stunning driving experience with breathtaking
cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. Its road manners are always
precise, stable and completely safe.
Suspension with unmatched precision
The layout of the suspension is directly derived from motor racing, with a
double aluminum wishbone guiding the wheels. Precise rack-and-pinion
4
steering gives the driver a very close connection to the road. As is true for the
Gallardo Superleggera, the vehicle is specially set up to take full advantage of
its dynamic potential. No other model in the Gallardo line is as close to being a
true race car. Another great feature is the ultra-lightweight 19-inch wheels,
which alone save some 13 kilograms. The lightweight and sturdy wheel bearings
and bolts are made from titanium and high performance Pirelli P Zero Corsa
tires are fitted.
Brakes with unmatched stopping power
Behind the massive wheels are brakes designed for unmatched stopping power,
as controlled by the ESP stability control system, which is standard equipment.
The front axle is equipped with aluminum calipers with eight pistons each, and
the calipers on the rear axle have four pistons each. The ventilated discs on the
front and rear measure 365 and 356 millimeters, respectively. Upon request,
Lamborghini will install a carbon-ceramic brake system. The carbon-ceramic
discs measure 380 mm for the front wheels and 356 mm for the rear wheels.
Racing-type options
The optional equipment designed with racing in mind includes not only the
carbon-fiber ceramic brake discs, but also a tubular interior roll cage, 4-point
safety belts and fire extinguisher. On the other hand, those who want comfort
can equip their Super Trofeo Stradale with a satellite navigation, with Bluetooth
connection for mobile phones, an anti-theft system, and a lifting system that
raises the front axle.

Not until they find a 10-word name for the car

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale may apply for a 7-word name.
