Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition

Lamborghini reveals its toughest Gallardo supercar yet, the motorsport inspired LP570-4 Blancpain Edition

Lamborghini has unveiled its hardest Gallardo yet. The LP570-4 Blancpain Edition celebrates the fastest one-make racing series in the world – the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo that our John and Roger have competed in – and brings the drama of Gallardo racing cars to the road. Just look at the rear styling, for example – the huge rear spoiler, Skorpius wheels and new engine cover are all borrowed from the circuit and distance the Blancpain Edition from the LP570-4 Superleggera it is based on. Like the lightweight Lambo (and the racing cars), the Blancpain uses a 562bhp tune of the company’s 5.2-litre V10 engine, and with just 1340kg to propel (a standard Gallardo LP560-4 weighs 1410kg) it hits 62mph in a claimed 3.4sec and tops 199mph. Hauling all that speed off is a set of carbon-ceramic brakes, while that lower weight figure comes courtesy of extensive carbonfibre usage.  There’ll be a 25,000 euro premium on top of the cost of its Superleggera base car, so once UK taxes are added, you’re looking at a pricetag of over £200,000 for the Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition. VIDEO: Review of the Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera FEATURE: Lamborghini LP550-2 v Gallardo Super Trofeo VIDEO: Roger and John race in the Super Trofeo at Spa
