2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera Review

More dynamic, lighter, more powerful and beautiful - Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 is the new top model of the Gallardo line. His evocative "Superlight" label refers to a true sports driving machine and describes a high performance athlete and the car lean. The Superleggera came to continue the success of its predecessor, launched in 2007, Lamborghini produced and sold no less than 618 in just one year.

Compared to the already lean Gallardo LP560-4 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 has a limited weight 70 kg (154 pounds). Supercar from Sant'Agata Bolognese prides itself on dry weight up to 1340 kg (2954 lb) - the lightest road model of the Lamborghini product line, and one of the best actors in the new niche market segments.

A key factor is the outside and inside the carbon fiber components. Carbon fiber is ideal for the manufacture of sports cars because their use reduces weight and better mechanical properties. The car has improved performance with greater power to weight ratio and reduces the total mass, meaning that CO2 emissions are also lower. Lamborghini has been at the forefront in the application of this material for many years, and now the brand is further extending its leadership.

Power Source V10 of 5.2 liters (317.6 cu in) engine capacity for the production of 419 kW (570 hp) is the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4. This puts the power to weight ratio of the new flagship model of only 2.35 kg (5.18 lb) per horsepower, and provides a breathtaking performance. Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera occasions with a dash from zero to 100 km / h (0-62 mph) 3.4 seconds, and flies to over 200 km / h (124 mph), only mark in 10.2 seconds later, and finally reaches 325 kmh (202 mph). Engine "direct injection stratified" direct injection of gasoline also boasts an impressive performance. Its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have decreased by 20.5 percent over the previous model.

The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 is an uncompromising driving machine. Their chassis, with its powerful braking system, exceptional accuracy and dedicated in his place, while his 19-inch wheels, Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, Pirelli tires use sport, are very light. The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 brings new meaning to the "supercar" in the long term.

Design and aerodynamics - The beauty of power

The elegance of each rests on the Lamborghini as extreme power and precise capabilities. Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera body is completely free of added shape and style. Dimensions to define the outline of a dynamic wedge - 4.39 meters (172.7 in) long, 1.90 meters (74.8 inches), but only 1.17 meters (45.9 in) tall.

The changes are aimed at increasing external aerodynamic effects. Working closely with experts in wind tunnels, the Lamborghini Centro Stile designers redesigned the front bumper - D elements deeply rooted in the trapezoidal shape of the intake air executives of large size. In collaboration with the V, well defined nose and LED daytime running lights, black elements give the head of a razor sharp look, said Lamborghini model. The new design increases the supply of cooling air and improving the aerodynamics at the front.

Modifications to the base completely covered, including articles of the new line and a redesigned diffuser incorporating four exhaust pipes of great help for better aerodynamics. The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 sports a small rear spoiler as standard. An optional large rear spoiler.

Body - Intelligent light engineering

The model in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 is based Superleggera, the Gallardo LP560-4, and is an excellent example of the philosophy of light engineering Lamborghini, with its dry weight of 1410 kg (3108.5 pounds). Its body is made of aluminum, with molded node elements and extruded parts which form a very rigid framework in which aluminum panels are integrated. Three-dimensional structure is resistant to shocks and is the basis for precise handling of the super sports car.

In this context, the task of reducing the weight of another 70 kg (154 lb) presents a huge challenge for engineers Lamborghini - the target, a power to weight ratio of 2.35 kg (5.18 pounds) CV, sets a new best of the competition. Lamborghini's engineers managed the task as they normally do - high-tech aesthetic instinct and experience.

The rear and side windows are made of sturdy and durable polycarbonate. The engine also includes a polycarbonate window in which the V10 engine will appear as a technical masterpiece. The section covers long runs from the roof at the rear of the vehicle and is made of carbon fiber. Engineers also chose carbon fiber rear spoiler, panels, diffuser, spare panels and base exterior mirror housings delicate.

With its low weight and high stiffness, carbon fiber is the ideal material for a super sports car. Already in the 1980s, Lamborghini had already picked up experience in this field with the Countach. Today, parts of the structure of the bat is made of carbon fiber. To ensure its leadership position even further, the mark of Sant'Agata Bolognese has established a center of excellence for carbon fiber materials, where specialists are developing components, which work with efficient manufacturing technologies.

Lamborghini carbon fiber strategy has continued to demonstrate its foundation, "Laboratory of Automobili Lamborghini, advanced composite structures" (ACSL) at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. Lamborghini claims the body and its long-term collaborative research work in aeronautics and astronautics from composite materials "for automotive applications. Besides the University of Washington, Boeing Aircraft Company is also a partner in the Lamborghini.

The manufacturer of command experience in the field of composite materials. With the new type 787 Dreamliner, Boeing developed the first commercial aircraft built entirely of carbon fiber. Thanks to its superior characteristics, the fuel that consumes 20 percent less than conventional aircraft.

The interior and the use of carbon fiber

In total, the carbon fiber components are 40 (88 lbs) 70 kg (154 pounds) recorded in the Superleggera Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4. Inside too, the engineers to reduce weight as much as possible. Coverage of the center console, door panels and monitoring e-shifter automated manual transmission are made of carbon fiber. The high-end equipment is also used for seating the tanks of sport. They make a significant contribution to reducing overall weight.

Just like any other cabin, sports seats are upholstered in Alcantara light instead of leather. Lamborghini, losing weight is not synonymous with sacrifice - the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is even equipped with air conditioning and electric windows as standard.

Lamborghini has built on this strength - the interior is thoroughly passionate attention to detail, quality materials to pamper both visually and sensually.

Interior, including ceilings and carpets, to preserve the finish black Lamborghini Gallardo. As a contrasting color for items such as seat covers and stitching, customers can choose green, yellow, orange and two shades of gray. They are responsible for exterior paint finishes Verde Ithaca, Midas Yellow, Borealis Orange, Telesto Gray, Monocerus Noctis Black.

Engine - 10.2 seconds from zero to 200 kmh

The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4, LP stands for "longitudinal rear" and refers to the direction of a V10 engine - which is mounted longitudinally behind the driver, such as a Lamborghini engine. Number 570 refers to the maximum power of the HP, which corresponds to 419 kW and 8000 rpm can be found. Equally impressive is the attraction - the peak of the torque curve of 540 Nm (� 398.3 m) of 6500 revolutions per minute. What is a 7 kW (10 hp) is the result of a new dedicated engine management strategy.

The V10 has a displacement of 5204 cm3 and achieves a specific output of 80.5 kW (109.6 hp) per liter. Special features of this long-stroke engine with an aluminum can include dry sump lubrication and a cylinder angle of 90 degrees. Both solutions low center of gravity, improving driving dynamics. To ensure a perfect filling of the combustion chamber, the engine intake manifold and continuous adjustment of the cam chain driven.

The crankshaft has been prepared in a dual-plane crank - pistons connecting rods share a single buffer. This configuration offers turn the power on all 54 and 90 degrees, a unique sequence, which is the reason for compelling reasons, race-car audio than the V10. As speed increases, resonant bass are stacked with razor-sharp harmonics.

Powerful V10 model, combined with the loss of weight is the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera breathtaking performance. The car accelerates from zero to 100 km / h (0-62 mph), just 3.4 seconds, 0-200 km / h (0-124 mph) in 10.2 seconds - then continue to a top speed of 325 km / h (202 mph).

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 is also significantly more effective - compared to its predecessor, its fuel economy test cycle, the EU is reduced by 3.5 liters per 100 kilometers (0.9 gal) or 20 , 5 per cent to 13.5 liters / 100 km (16 mpg). This improvement is due in part to "iniezione Diretta Stratificata" system of direct fuel injection sprays fuel into the combustion chamber at pressures up to 100 bar. The tumbling mixture cools the combustion chambers, resulting in a very high compression ratio of 12.5:1, which in turn increases efficiency.

Transmission - Drive without compromise

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 comes with e-gear is operated by paddles as standard. The automated system with electronically controlled shifts through its six speeds very good and much faster than can be achieved by human reflexes.

The control unit E-Gear has three operating modes, including two available automatically. Mode "push" offers maximum performance off-line and is programmed to manage systems from 5000 rpm, with minimal wheel slip.

Every mile of the new Superleggera is absolutely fascinating - at least not because of the relentless traction in almost any situation. This is largely due to four-wheel drive, as indicated by the number 4 in the model name.

The permanent four-wheel drive includes a central viscous coupling and a limited slip differential of 45 percent on the rear axle. Under normal circumstances, the power supplied by V10 channeled with a ratio of 30:70 in the front and rear axles. Weight distribution of the Gallardo is Superlight 43/57 percent front / rear.

In 1993, the Diablo VT the first Italian super sports car with four-wheel drive set-up, and Lamborghini has ceased to consolidate its leadership ever since. Thanks to the superiority of the car drivers can speed traction earlier Lamborghini out of a corner that drivers of cars rear-wheel drive.

The chassis - even stronger, more precise

The new Gallardo Superleggera is an extremely focused driving machine - cooled impressive cornering speeds and quick, immediate response. Its handling is always precise, stable and predictable.

The chassis design is derived directly from the experience of motor sport Lamborghini. Suspension is double wishbone aluminum. The casting accuracy and pinion steering keeps the driver closely linked to the road. The cushions are extremely strong, and stabilizer bars and suspension mounts have been reinforced: these features allow the chassis to reach their full dynamic potential. No other model in the range of Gallardo is close to a race car like this. The development of the Superleggera was strongly influenced by experiences in the world's fastest series of races under a single brand, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.

Another feature of the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 is the wheels. The units are 19-inch forged aluminum and are therefore very easily - saving 13 kg (28.6 lb). The wheel bolts are made of titanium and are also extremely light and rigid. Tires are 235/35 ZR19 295/30 ZR19 front and back and just Pirelli P Zero Corsa Series. Developed specifically for the new high-end Gallardo, they are closely related to the pure race rubber.

Behind the big wheels are brakes that are used to provide braking power without compromise and are managed by the control system, ESP stability standard setting. The front wheels are aluminum was eight-piston calipers with four pistons at the rear of the units. Ventilated disc brakes with a diameter of 365 and 356 millimeters (14.37 x 1.34 x 14.02 inches in diameter and 1.26), respectively. Optional, Lamborghini can be adapted very hard and resistant to fading light ceramic carbon fiber with six-piston front. Ceramic front discs have a diameter of 380 mm (� 15 x 1.5 in.).

Accessories - Hi-Tech road and track

Together with its special components of lightweight carbon fiber, the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 comes standard with a number of premium features. Highlights E-Gear transmission - a manual transmission is also available at no additional cost - the dedicated set-up, Pirelli tires and sport seats sport. Alcantara upholstery and hand-stitched steering wheel has also created the indoor environment.

The range of special tools particularly athletic. It includes a ceramic brake discs made of carbon fiber, four-point safety belts, fire extinguisher and roll-bar steel. The visual effect may further increase the rear spoiler and engine compartment for the engine compartment - carbon fiber - as well as the colored brake calipers.

Ministry of Interior, Lamborghini has a special floor mats and leather steering wheel, alarm system and storage package. Excess carbon fiber center console includes a dashboard and upholstery, parking brake handle, steering parts and door handles. LED light illuminates the package in the engine compartment, interior design, and access to the area.
