The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse has been unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show.

It takes its name – Squadro Corse – from the recently created department within Lamborghini that manages the company’s motorsport activities.

The LP 570-4 is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the race car used in Lamborghini’s one-make race series.

It’s powered by a 570 hp V10 engine that revs to more than 8,000 rpm.  It can sprint from rest to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, and on to a top speed of 199 mph.

Power is transferred to all four wheels via a robotised ‘e-gear’ six-speed transmission operated by steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Extensive use is made of aluminium and carbon-fibre in the LP 570’s construction, and Lambo claim the new car is 70 kg lighter than the LP 560-4, weighing in at 1,340 kg dry.

The Squadro Corse is available in a choice of Giallo Midas (yellow), Bianco Monocerus (white), Grigio Thalasso (grey) and Rosso Mars (red).

The bonnet, front air intakes, rear diffuser and 19-inch alloy wheels are all finished in gloss black, while the brake calipers are available in either red, yellow or black.

The interior features carbon-fibre and Alcantara in abundance, and customers can choose between standard or racing bucket seats.

Only a limited number will be produced, priced at € 191.100, plus tax.
