New Car: 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo Blancpain Edition

Meet the most hardcore Gallardo yet! Lamborghini has unveiled the Gallardo 570-4 Blancpain edition– a road-legal version of the cars used in the Super Trofeo race-series, which will be shown on Lamborghini’s show-stand at the Paris Motor Show.

At the last race of the Super Trofeo race season – sponsored by Swiss watchmakers Blancpain– the Italian marque took the wraps off the newcomer, which boasts the same 562bhp V10 unit, ventilated engine cover and large rear wing seen on the race-car. Carbon-ceramic brakes also feature.

Thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out– including the rear diffuser and mirror casings– the Blancpain edition weighs in at just 1340kg. The standard Gallardo 560-4 weighs 1,549kg.

With the huge drop in weight, there’s also a significant leap in performance. Acceleration from 0-62mph is down to 3.4 seconds– that’s 0.6 seconds quicker than the 560-4. Incredibly, 0-124mph takes only 10.2 seconds.

There’s been a few cosmetic updates too. The newcomer is finished in matt black and gets a set of black Skorpius alloy wheels and yellow-painted brake callipers.

Inside, the cabin is finished in black alcantara, with the Blancpain logo stitched in yellow into the seats. For more details click here.
