Okay, we were just as excited as you. Who isn’t? This is the colour you either instantly fall in love with or one that naturally causes your eyes to roll back with a huge curse under your breath. Even the owner admits the polarity of reactions. Well, haters gonna hate, lovers gonna love. The sky will always be blue and sgCarShoot will still deliver.
The subject is a 5.2L V10 year 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggara – which also translates to 570 metric brake horsepower, an all-wheel drive system and a super light body weight of 1,340kg, achieved with carbon fiber extensively used inside and out. Although officially in its last year of production with the last Gallardo rolling out of its company’s production line in Sant’ Agata, this baby lambo has set a record with a total of 14,022 units sold in the past 10 years.
The LP570-4 is the more powerful version of the LP560-4, sharing the same bloodline as the previous Superleggera, and the lightest production Lamborghini in its model range. Performance has also been improved for a lighting fast 3.4 seconds century run, delivering maximum torque at 8,000rpm and topping out at a speed of 325km/h.
This is the ultimate crowd magnet and it doesn’t help when the shoot assignment was happening on a bustling weekend afternoon. All you wish for was just a split second of crowd dispersion and grab the chance with zero error tolerance.
Beyond the LP570’s aerodynamic body sculpture, the interior is also incredibly beautiful. The entire cabin is almost swathed in black Alcantara, including the seats. Other fine touches include the aluminium pedals, leather strap door pulls, and dashboard and flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped in luxurious suede.
