The Gallardo LP560-4 was remarkable (Top Gear used words like "phenomenal" and "epic"), but the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is even lighter and more powerful. Like the previous 2007 Superleggera, the LP570 uses carbon fibre extensively inside and out to reduce weight to just 1,340 kg making it the lightest road-going Lamborghini in the range. In fact the carbon fibre seems to be everywhere: the rear diffuser, underbody paneling, exterior mirror housings, door sills and the rear spoiler. They've also switched the side glass, the rear glass and the engine cover to light-weight polycarbonate.
All this means that performance over the standard Gallardo has been improved to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, and a 202 mph top speed.
