With 40 hp more power than the previous car, enhanced acceleration from 0-62 mph of 3.7 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 200 mph, the new car is priced at £147,330.00 on the road, including NavTrak vehicle tracking system and delivery package.
The Gallardo Coupé LP560-4 is so named due to its engine position – Longitudinale Posteriore – and its power output of 560 hp. With 40 hp more than the previous Gallardo and a 20 kg reduction in weight, the power:weight ratio is improved to 2.5 kg per hp. The ‘4’ refers to the Lamborghini product feature of permanent four-wheel drive.
The LP560-4 comes with a new V10, 5.2 litre direct fuel injection engine: ‘Iniezione Diretta Stratificata’. Despite its increased power, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 18%. With its new engine, permanent four-wheel drive transmission and new suspension, it delivers significantly enhanced performance and dynamics. Lamborghini’s engineers have also improved traction, handling and stability at high speeds, with the new transmission, new suspension, optimised aerodynamics as well as the reduced weight and decreased friction between the components, all contributing to the overall improvements in the vehicle.
