Lamborghini to Bring Road-going Gallardo Super Trofeo to Frankfurt
As a last ‘hurrah’ of one of the most interesting and lovable V10 Lambos ever made, the automaker will bring a road-going Super Trofeo version of the Gallardo to this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show, according to Auto Express.
As you might expect from such a long lasting design, this is probably the last version of the car to come before it’s replaced by the rumored Cabrera that’s currently being tested.
Destined to be the most hardcore Gallardo ever built for the road, this new model is expected to sport the race car's 570 horsepower 5.2-liter V-10 engine, as well as a six-speed e-gear transmission, all-wheel drive configuration, and hard-as-rock racing suspension.
In similar fashion to the one-make race series that the Super Trofeo competes in, only 30 cars will be produced.
We’ll remind you that the Super Trofeo comes with competition tires from Pirelli, a special racing brake system, additional carbon-fiber exterior bodywork, an ultra-light race seat, a racing steering wheel, and unique racing instrumentation, most of which should make it to the road going car. However, we can expect a bit of carpeting and sound insulation to come back into the mix - sort of like a Gallardo GT3 RS.
All of these race-spec changes will also help the supercar shed some 220 lbs (100 kg) off it’s normal weight.
We’re especially keen to see the huge wing on the back that no other stock road-going Gallardo has right now.
Now that it’s big secret has been revealed, the Italian company will likely be inclined to show a bit more of the car before the Frankfurt debut.
