More details, including pricing, have emerged regarding Lamborghini’s new Gallardo Squadra Corse model.
Even though European customers can choose from Giallo Midas (yellow), Monocerus Bianco (white), Grigio Thalasso (grey) and Rosso Mars (red) exterior colours, America will only be offered yellow.
Out of the 50 being built, a mere 15 examples will be heading to the States, with a further three slated for Canada. Interested parties will need to have at least $259,100 (€193,546) in their piggy banks – plus the $2,100 gas guzzler tax imposed on new cars that do not meet required fuel economy levels. Deliveries begin in September following the car’s Franfurt reveal.
The Squadra Corse takes its name from Lamborghini’s racing department and is the closest thing you can get to a road legal Super Trofeo racecar. Power comes from a 5.2-litre V10 which sends 419 kW (570 hp) and 540 Nm of torque to all four wheels via a 6-speed robotized sequential system operated by flappy paddles. Tipping the scales at 1340 kg, it hits 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, 200 km/h in 10.4 seconds and a reaches a 320 km/h (199 mph) top speed before the carbon ceramic brakes are jumped on.
