Lamborghini unveiled its latest iteration of its Super Trofeo Gallardo, the LP570-4, which receives a significant aerodynamic upgrade over its 2012 replacement.
The race car, which is available as part of the Italian exotic automaker’s customer racing program, will be the newest model to be campaigned in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series. Performance figures was not revealed at the official release of the car, but it’s expected to carry over the same 570-hp V10 found in its predecessor.
The exotic Italian automaker however did elaborate on the other upgrades done for the 2013 LP570-4, which includes a 120-percent improvement in aerodynamic efficiency over the 2012 model. The brake ducts were also remodeled, giving the LP570-4 Super Trofeo a 50-percent improvement in thermal performance with improved front-brake cooling. Better balance and dynamic performance was also achieved by increasing downforce by 128 kg in the low downforce setup, and 160 kg in high downforce trim.
Last year, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series featured six races with 58 drivers all across Europe. It’s considered the world’s fastest one-make race series and understandably so.
“We have taken a significant step forward with the aerodynamic performance of the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo, but still the car stays true to our core principles. We believe that it is important to evolve the car, while ensuring Super Trofeo remains an attractive series in which to compete,” said Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini Research & Development Director and Head of Lamborghini Motorsport.
