The rear wing is taken directly from the race car, and is said to produce three times the downforce of the standard Gallardo. Both the quick-release engine cover and rear wing are made from carbon fibre. All the weight-saving measures in the Squadra Corse add up to a dry weight of 1340kg: 70kg less than the regular car, and the same as the Superleggera.

Performance is also around the same, with a 0-62mph in 3.4secs, with a slightly lower 198mph top speed due to the extra drag of the wing. Like the Super Trofeo, the Squadra Corse is fitted with the six-speed semi-automatic e-gear transmission, and four-wheel drive.
