Lamborghini has revealed more details and photos of the final version of the current Gallardo – the LP 570-4 Squadra Corse.
Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show tomorrow, the Squadra Crose is the most extreme model in the Gallardo lineup. Using the same V10 engine, rear wing and removable engine hood, they are both made from carbon fiber material.
Weighing in at 1,340kg (2,954lbs), the Squadra Corse is 70kg (154lbs) lighter than the Gallardo LP 560-4, boasting a power-to-weight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per hp.
