Last year Lamborghini came with the latest model of Gallardo, the LP570-4 Superleggera at the Geneva Motor Show 2010. The Lamborghini Superleggera 2011 model is faster and lighter than ever before. This high-performance variant builds upon the new LP570 Gallardo line that was first introduced in 2008.

The Gallardo LP570 is a two door coupe and weights only 2954 lbs. It is the fastest car from Gallardo so far that achieves 62 mph in just 3.4 secs and has a top speed of 202mph. The engine is a V10 with direct injection. The new Lamborghini Superleggera also runs the six-speed, robotized e-gear transmission as standard. Fuel consumption is down to 17.4 mpg.
Design And Comfort
Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera has extensively used carbon fiber for its interiors as well as exterior to make the car lightweight. Various locations where this material has been used is the engine hood, rear diffuser, underbody paneling, exterior mirrors, rear spoiler and side sills of the car. The exterior styling is breathtaking. The super car offers high level of comfort to its occupants.
The hand-built cabin of Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera features monocoque carbon fiber sports seats, upholstered in Alcantara.
