Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera’s engine is the latest version of Lamborghini’s well-known 4,961 ccm V10. The increase in power (to 530 bhp) was made possible by the engine’s improved volumetric efficiency through reduced intake load losses and by exhaust backpressures, together with optimized electronic control. Lamborghini engineers decreased the Lamborghini Gallardo’s already low weight when empty by another 154 lbs using advanced materials and tecnologies. The engine hood is made of visible carbon fiber and transparent polycarbonate, a type of material that guarantees lightness and also shows off the magnificent V10. The rear diffuser and underbody covering, the rearview mirrors, door panels and the central tunnel’s covering are also made of carbon fiber.
