The 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is a limited run (only 150 were built) supercar distinguished by its large rear wing that generates three times the downforce of the spoiler used on the standard car. This aero piece and the quick-release engine cover are made of carbon fiber, which helps to further reduce mass on this new flagship Gallardo. The Super Trofeo Stradale tips the scales at 2948 lb., almost 150 less than the standard car.
Beneath the engine cover is the Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V-10, which produces 570 bhp at 8000 rpm. The engine is mated to an e-gear 6-speed sequential-shift manual with an automatic clutch. The car is equipped with a “Thrust” mode that launches the car with minimal tire slippage when the engine reaches 5000 rpm. Unlike other Cup cars that favor rear-drive, the standard all-wheel-drive layout is retained in the Super Trofeo Stradale. The factory says the lighter weight contributes to the car’s stunning performance. Top speed is 199 mph, and the car reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.4 sec. Just as impressive, the Super Trofeo Stradale hits 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 10.4 sec.
