Paris, France – At the 2012 Paris Motorshow Automobili Lamborghini is presenting the new Gallardo LP 560-4 and the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica. The new Gallardo LP 560-4 – equipped with permanent four wheel drive- has a new front end and a new rear, while top models in the Gallardo line-up,the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, will be offered also as the further enhanced Edizione Tecnica. The six models of the Gallardo family are now clearly differentiated.
The new Gallardo models will be available at Lamborghini dealerships from November 2012.
The new Gallardo LP 560-4
The Gallardo design has now been further accentuated in the new Gallardo LP 560-4. The new front end is characterized by triangular and trapezoidal forms – two shapes that are highly typical of the Lamborghini design language. Divided by diagonal elements in body color and in black, the overall look of the front end is broader and more forceful, giving it an even stronger bond with the road.
To complete the new look larger air intakes have been created ahead of the front wheels and the new 19-inch “Apollo polished” alloy wheels, painted in matt black and featuring precision-machined spokes in polished silver.
Also new is the rear end design on the Gallardo LP 560-4. The triangle and trapezoid are, of course, the characteristic design elements here, too. The air outlet for the power unit now has now a wider surface area, which improves its thermodynamic efficiency. A new Style Package is available as an option and offers high-gloss black paintwork on the underside of the front spoiler, front and rear grilles and the transverse element of the rear trim to give the Gallardo LP 560-4 an even more powerful look.
The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica
With a more determined lightweight design, a focus on high performance and a purist look, the LP 570-4 Superleggera and the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante mark the very pinnacle of the Gallardo family. As Edizione Tecnica, they benefit from a further improved equipment level and an even more individual look. Features of the Edizione Tecnica include the fixed high rear wing, as well as brakes in carbon-ceramic technology. They combine low weight with outstanding fade resistance and durability. The power to weight ratio down to an outstanding 2,35 allows the car to be taken as one of the best references in the segment.
The new LP 560-4 and the Edizione Tecnica for the LP 570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante, underline – even in terms of design – the differences in mechanical and driving experience among the four-wheel drive versions of the Gallardo range.
In fact, beside the Gallardo four-wheel drive, the two-wheel drive Gallardo LP 550-2 in Coupe and Spyder format are still available. With its purist rear-wheel drive, it appeals to drivers that prefer a highly active and engaged driving style. The Gallardo LP 550-2 offers the unique design and performance of a Lamborghini in a simple and uncomplicated form.
