With about a week left until the might of the automotive industry travels to Paris for what promises to be a show to remember, details of the models to be show there keep on surfacing. This week starts with news of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition, a Lambo which will also take the stand at the event.
Built by Lamborghini and Blancpain as a tribute to the Super Trofeo, the car comes powered by a 5.2l V10 engine (taken from the series Superleggera), developing 570 hp. The car has enough punch hidden under the hood that it can accelerate from naught to sixty in 3.4 seconds and reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in an extra 6.8 seconds, on its way to the 320 km/h (199 mph) mark.
Visually, the car has also been built in such a way that it stands out from its regular production version peers. The interior comes in black Alcantara with yellow accents and visible carbon-fiber, with the Blancpain logo placed on the seats and cockpit in yellow stitching.
At the exterior, the special edition look is enhanced by the Skorpius wheels with yellow-painted brake calipers, as well as several other unique features, including the diffuser and mirror casings.
"This is a very intense and dynamic partnership between companies from highly disparate sectors, but with the same drive for innovation and mechanical excellence,"
said Marc A. Hayek, Blancpain CEO.
