Introducing the Lamborghini LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, the Italian bull’s latest creation and one that takes much inspiration from the Lamborghini’s Blancpain Super Trofeo race car. This street legal wonder is indeed race car inspired and features a 570-horsepower V10 engine to back up all the chatter. The rear spoiler offers increased dynamic stability during high-speeds while the lightweight construction can be credited to a carbon composite material that allows the Stradale to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and that’s before the car’s “Thrust Mode” is even utilized. The “Rosso Mars” finish symbolizes Italy’s traditional racing red.
Only 150 units of the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale will be produced.
