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.
