Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera: First drive review

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

Nice driving review here of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.

We sampled the new Superleggera close to Lamborghini’s base, with the sophisticated character of the 458 Italia relatively fresh in our mind. The Lamborghini’s personality is much rougher in comparison, a trait signaled by its wild exterior. Compared with the regular Gallardo LP560-4, the car has larger front intake nostrils like those on the Murciélago LP670-4 SV, and they send more air to the radiators and are said to impart extra front-end downforce. The diffuser and spoiler at the rear are bigger, and Lambo says they provide more downforce, too. The side skirts are different and the Superleggera gets a unique wheel design. Our tester had the truly extroverted large rear wing, but more shy buyers—as if Lambo customers could be described as such—can specify a smaller piece. But it’s not as if this car will ever fly below the radar of law enforcement.
