Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera: Speed of light

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
Interesting review here of the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, make sure to read.

It looks like a sinister spaceship and with its name translating as ‘superlight’, the stripped down, 192mph Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera shifts like one, too. Our test pilot finds most Earth roads too puny for this monster.

This new one, however, just changed my mind. Blew my mind, in fact.

Sidling up to my front door in sinister, battleship grey with mysterious carbon fins all over the place, it looked like some kind of MI6 surveillance craft.

I climbed inside – no problems squeezing in – and relaxed into one of the best seats I’ve ever sat in, covered in black Alcantara with purposeful racing harnesses.

The same cloth is used on the roof lining and dashboard, which has a mere six switches and no radio (no point, you wouldn’t be able to hear it anyway).

Everything else is matt black carbon, saving 154lb weight against the standard Gallardo – while the V10 engine has been tweaked to increase the horsepower.

The doors were the best touch: just a thin slice of carbon with one switch for the windows, a door handle and nothing else.

It’s the skeletal Grim Reaper of the motoring world and I could already feel its power.

When you fire up this car, it’s an event.
