It seems as though Ferrari and Lamborghini are always launching their new cars in reaction to each other. The lachạy thử example is Lamborghini’s launch of the LP570-4 Superleggera (Italian for “super light”) just months after Ferrari introduced the 458 Italia. But the game won’t involve sầu one-upmanship this time, as there’s little chance that the Lamborghini can overtake the Ferrari on the road. Both offer the same 562 hp và weigh about 3400 pounds. Indeed, their manufacturers claim identical 3.4-second 0-to-62-mph times and 202-mph top speeds.

Adding Lightness…

We sampled the new Superleggera cthất bại to lớn Lamborghini’s trang chính base, with the sophisticated character of the 458 Italia relatively fresh in our mind. The Lamborghini’s personality is much rougher in comparison, a trait signaled by its wild exterior. Compared with the regular Gallarvị LP560-4, the Superleggera has larger front intake nostrils lượt thích those on the Murciélago LP670-4 SV, & they sover more air lớn the radiators and are said to impart extra front-over downforce. The diffuser and spoiler at the rear are bigger, and Lambo says they provide more downforce, too. The side skirts are different, và the Superleggera gets a unique wheel thiết kế. Our tester had the truly extroverted large rear wing, but shyer buyers—as if Lambo customers could be described as such—can specify a smaller piece. But it’s not as if this car would ever fly below the radar of law enforcement.

The Superleggera is lighter than the stoông chồng Gallarbởi vì by a claimed 154 pounds, 88 of which are accounted for by the use of carbon fiber for the engine-cover frame, external mirrors, rear spoiler, side skirts, và diffuser. The remaining weight loss comes from the new wheels and interior changes. The 19-inch forged aluminum wheels—attached with titanium lug nuts và shod with 235/35 front và 295/30 rear Pirelli P.. Zero Corsa tires—save 29 pounds. Inside, the center tunnel, the door panels, & the bucket seats are now rendered in carbon fiber, and trimming the seats & dashboard with Alcantara instead of leather also helped the slimming process.

…và Power

The Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine makes 10 more hp in the Superleggera than in the LP560-4, thanks to lớn revised engine management calibration. Torque remains the same at 398 lb-ft. The Superleggera comes standard with Lamborghini’s e-gear automated manual transmission, & a conventional six-tốc độ manual with a gated shifter is a no-cost option. The e-gear transmission has three modes: Normal và “corsa” are fully automatic, whereas sport is a manual mode activated via the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Lamborghini has programmed in a launch-control system, called thrust mode, that drops the clutch at 5000 rpm for maximum acceleration off the line.

The engine is incredibly responsive khổng lồ commands from the throttle, and it sounds malevolent even at idle. On the move, the V-10 is incredibly aggressive sầu, emitting a deep bark at full throttle that’s wilder and more brutal than the Ferrari Italia’s engine note. And the Superleggera is seriously fast in a straight line. Lamborghini’s claimed 0-to-62-mph time looks conservative, because we managed to lớn cover the sprint in 3.2 seconds in an LP560-4, which has slightly less power and weighs in at just over 3500 pounds. Lamborghini also claims a 10.2-second run lớn 124 mph, so 100 mph should come up in fewer than seven seconds.

A Harder Core

The Superleggera gets suspension changes to lớn make it even sportier, with firmer shock settings and stiffer anti-roll bars. Switching between the transmission modes has no effect on the suspension, which already is about as tied down as you want in a street oto. The steering is precise & extremely sensitive sầu, but the trade-off from the suspension modifications is a harsh ride over small undulations. The Superleggera is certainly a sharper weapon than the regular Gallarbởi vì, but it’s also almost too much like a racing oto on the street.

As in the Gallarvì chưng LP560-4, the extra weight of the all-wheel-drive sầu system at the front kết thúc makes the Superleggera understeer more than the 458 Italia on corner entry, but as you feed the power in, the central viscous coupling transfers torque lớn the rear axle, & it’s possible khổng lồ get the tail out, provided the stability-control system is switched off. Although the Superleggera is quite compact, outward visibility isn’t that great, và we’d recommkết thúc ordering the optional rearview camera (it lives under the spoiler), as it’s certainly cheaper than buying a new bumper.

A Heftier Sticker

Just 618 examples of the previous Gallarbởi Superleggera were sold worldwide, but Lamborghini is hoping to sell considerably more this time around. U.S pricing has yet lớn be confirmed, but based on the pretax European sticker of €175,400, we figure the base price will be about $235,000, or about $30,000 more than the Gallarvị LP560-4. Add in desirable options such as navigation, the front-end lifting system, the rearview camera, and carbon-ceramic brakes, & the price will easily reach more than $250,000. Coming baông chồng lớn the rivalry between the preeminent Italian sports-oto makers, the Superleggera is definitely a wilder, more extroverted car than is Ferrari’s 458 Italia, but we’ll defer judgment on which is better until we can compare them side by side.
