A while ago, Lamborghini announced that it will come at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show saying: “Lamborghini. Racing Towards Frankfurt“. However, at the time it was really difficult to know what could the Italian firm be readying for the largest motor show of the year. Well, it seems that Lamborghini‘s surprise isn’t a surprise anymore because the mystery was revealed.
According to Carscoop, the “Lamborghini Racing Towards Frankfurt” is a limited edition version of the current generation Gallardo.
Still, keep in mind that special edition version of the current generation Gallardo will not only be slightly more powerful and lighter than the standard Gallardo, but also more radical and hardcore than the Superleggera.
Refresher: The 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 that sends 552 hp and 398 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. This engine is matted to a six-speed manual transmission with a gated metal shifter is standard. However, a six-speed, single-clutch automated manual transmission (known as “e-gear”) is optional.
This car can go from zero to 60 mph in the mid-3-second range, while the EPA-estimated fuel economy is 12 mpg city/20 mpg highway and 15 mpg combined with the traditional manual and 13/20/16 with e-gear.
The Superleggera and Spyder Performante get a retuned version of the 5.2-liter V10 good for 562 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. The e-gear transmission is standard. These models should hit 60 in the low 3s and they also get an additional mpg in the city, which makes the Superleggera the environmentally conscious Lamborghini.
Pricing is not yet available at this time, but expect it to start from about $240-250,000.
