[Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera]


Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera unveiled [Wed 28th Feb 2007]
Italian supercar maker Lamborghini will showcase the new Gallardo Superleggera coupe at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Thanks to increased power (an additional 10 hp) and a 220-pound reduction in weight (154 pounds for the U.S. model), the new range-topping Superleggera is faster and more agile than the regular model. The Superleggera needs only 3.8 seconds to go from 0 to 62 mph ? 0.2 seconds less than the basic Gallardo. The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera comes with robotized mechanical e-gear as standard; a sports package including shock absorbers; and special suede-covered steering wheel. The car's engine is the latest version of Lamborghini's well-known 4,961 cc V10. 530 hp is achieved in 8,000 rpm. Lamborghini engineers decreased the Lamborghini Gallardo's already low weight using advanced materials. The engine hood is made of visible carbon fiber and plastic, a type of material that guarantees lightness and also shows off the magnificent V10. The rear diffuser and underbody covering, the rearview mirrors, door panels and the central tunnel's covering are also made of carbon fiber. Further reductions in weight were achieved by replacing certain glass surfaces with clear plastic. For the interior, monocoque carbon fiber sports seats covered in Alcantara are offered.
