The Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is the most extreme model in the Gallardo lineup and is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo race car. The name Squadra Corse pays homage to the recently founded division within Lamborghini, which is in charge of all motorsports activities for the brand.

Powering the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse is a V10 engine with 570 horsepower and will come standard with the robotized e-gear, six-speed transmission found in the race car.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse will make its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
