Several of the body panels are carbonfibre, cutting weight and increasing its performance kudos, while there’s height adjustable sports suspension and a new polished stainless steel exhaust system. The latter helps boost power from the standard Gallardo’s 552bhp to a decidedly more potent 582bhp, trumping the new Ferrari 458 Italia in the process. Torque is up to 413lb ft.
The exterior modifications are reasonably discreet, with more muscular front and rear aprons and a rear wing the main tell tales. Well, apart from those unfortunately gold 20in alloys. Inside you’ll find carbonfibre bucket seats alongside some extra leather and Alacantara, which forms some lovely stripes on the dashboard.
