Meet the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. The numbers are stoo-pid good. Ready? 561 horsepower from the now quite familiar 5.2-liter V10, which is up from 523 hp in the 2007 model). The Superleggera also weighs just 2,954 pounds. The last Superleggera tipped the scales at (a still light) 3,153 lbs, which means the new, much more powerful car is 199 pounds lighter. In fact, it weighs 33 pounds less than a Porsche Boxster – which is nuts. How'd Lambo pull it off? Well, Superleggera means "light weight" in Italian. That being said, the weight savings mostly come from carbon fiber with the rest of the fat being trimmed off the lightweight aluminum wheels.
In person, the LP570-4 looks fantastic, especially in screaming Lamborghini green. The big visual news is the massive, Reventon-inspired front air intakes, but we like the giant rear diffuser even more. In fact, we can't think of a single thing we don't like about the latest fighting bull from Sant'Agata, save the not-yet-announced price tag. Which is why we're so big on the lottery.
