The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale take the wheel last weekend at the Race weekends Blancpain series took its quarters on the Paul Ricard circuit for the first time in its short history. This series which brings together several disciplines of GT and cars is also an opportunity for Lamborghini to the promotion of its models.
Forced to the maximum with only 2 models catalog, Lamborghini declined both and its Gallardo that is replaced at the end of 2013 and should soon look into the recent Lamborghini Aventador declinations. The coming of the firm of Sant’Agata in the Var has allowed us to learn that, for the moment, the green light had not yet was brandi to the development of the SUV Lamborghini Urus and the boss Stefan Winkelmann absent officially due to illness should not remain at the head of the firm he manages since 2005 beyond 2013. And as Lamborghini is probably the mark of the coolest Italian prestige of the boot, they I have the keys to a Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale to thank me just for coming!
The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale presents itself as the road version of the model which runs in the monotype Lamborghini Super Trofeo series held during the meeting of the Blancpain Race Weekends. This escapement of circuits has the V10 5.2 l with 570 HP and 540 Nm of torque and four-wheel drive. This version weighs 1340 kilograms (dry so no fluids) and claims a 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 s and a maximum speed of 320 km/h. Its e-gear box robotic old (this is not a dual clutch) ensures you receive at each change of report a beautiful strike on the rear of crane, what makes you think twice before they hire a report in support of and in full acceleration.
Those who follow Lamborghini closely and know all the details of the models of the brand will have noted, benefits equal to the Superleggera which has the same technical set. In fact, the Super Trofeo Stradale is a series limited to 150 copies which can be distinguished from the Superleggera by his Treaty cockpit Racing (Alcantara, carbon, bucket seats and harnesses), its color Rosso March that slams, its wing rear carbon eating 5 km / h in speed but provides support and engine louvered hood it also in carbon. In short, if you already have a Superlegerra, perhaps its not sentencing you break the head to resell your toy for pay you it.
And actually, flying in hands, difficult to tell the difference between a Superleggera and the Trofeo Stradale. People may be a little faster return through the visible March deeper Rosso but it is the only difference. A Gallardo is today an oldschool supersportive which distils a torrent of sensations with an engine always also expressive in acceleration as in sound, handling and extremely reassuring agility and braking (here in carbon ceramic) frankly effective. Despite his look of spacecraft, the Gallardo easily leads to very high and this, speeds even on small roads.
Its four-wheel drive is clearly perceptible to the re-acceleration because as soon as you ask the foot on the pedal on the right, you feel the nose to depart from the path, which requires that you sometimes wait a little more long desired before the gas. To accelerate earlier, should adopt a very aggressive driving and enter hard on the brakes to rotate the back before accelerating, a classical technique for a 4 wheel drive without intelligent differential. But apart from on circuit, should be avoided to try this type of figure, the piece is rare and it would be inappropriate of him wipe the nostrils. Anyway, the level of grip is so important passage in a classic trajectory curve rates quite phenomenal like that. In the end, behind the wheel, in 2012, the Lamborghini Gallardo offers experience that might almost be called vintage with its reduced weight, its exuberant look, its painful for the neck, its brimming with health engine and its communication without (too much) of filters. One of the last of this race to be sure.
As the firm depreciation (2 positions combined with box settings: has and a little less steep Sport and Corsa), it will not prompt you to long journeys, and anyway, is not the tiny trunk in front and the almost total absence of storage in the passenger compartment that will push you to try the experience of travel. And if you still dare, you can take you to yourself because, remember, it’s called Super Trofeo Stradale.
With a name like that, hard to say that you have not been warned!
