Aside from the obvious external changes such as the redesigned front and rear ends, the revisions to the suspension geometry, powertrain and availability of carbon-ceramic brakes make for a significantly fiercer Gallardo.
The new e.gear setup also reduces shift time by up to 40 percent and variable shift modes give the driver control of shift firmness. The center differential uses a viscous coupling and maintains a steady-state 30-percent front, 70-percent rear power split. An electric lock-up front differential and a mechanical limited-slip rear unit allow the car to pull hard out of corners.
The cockpit section of the LP560’s all-aluminum chassis remains unchanged, but the front and rear substructures have been completely redesigned. Suspension pickups, as well as the components themselves, have been changed to better suit the aggressive nature of the new car.
