The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse will make its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show tomorrow but you won’t have to wait until then for full details on the most extreme Gallardo yet (ever?).
The limited production model will be priced at $261,200 and is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the race car that is featured in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series. Borrowed from the race car is the same rear spoiler for greater aerodynamic load. According to Lamborghini, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 can be achieved, increasing dynamic stability during high-speed cornering.

Also taken from the race car is the removable engine hood that is equipped with a quick-release system. Both the rear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material in addition to other components of the Squadra Corse model.
The top-of-the-range Gallardo has a dry weight of 2,954 pounds, over 154 pounds lighter than the LP 560-4. It will accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds and can hit 124 mph in 10.4 seconds. Its top speed is set at 199 mph.
The V10 engine powering the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is the standard V10 with 570 horsepower, so most of the performance upgrades comes in the form of aerodynamic enhancements and a generous diet. The powerplant is mated to a robotized e-gear, six-speed transmission operated by steering wheel paddles – just like the race car used in the Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
