Lamborghini confirms super-Gallardo

Spit hot Lambo: Instead of increasing power, the Gallardo SE achieves its extra pace via a six-speed transmission featuring shorter ratios for the first five gears.

Italian supercar maker to build sharper, faster version of Gallardo V10 coupe

26 Jul 2005

GOOD news has arrived for those who fancy Lamborghini’s 368kW 5.0-litre V10-powered Gallardo coupe but reckon its Porsche 911 Turbo-matching 309km/h top speed isn’t quite fast enough.

The Italian supercar company last week confirmed it will produce 250 versions of the hottest Gallardo ever, capable of sprinting to 100km/h in just four seconds (two tenths quicker than the regular Gallardo) and on to a top speed of 315km/h.

To be available in Europe by September in an exclusive two-tone exterior paint colour, the Gallardo SE achieves its extra pace not by producing more power, but via a six-speed transmission that features shorter ratios for the first five gears.

The limited-edition Gallardo variant also handles with new-found precision thanks to more direct and precise steering, as well as standard sports suspension and Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres.

The all-wheel drive Gallardo SE also offers an exclusive new interior featuring colour-matched piping and stitching, plus Lamborghini shields embossed on the driver and passenger seat head restraints. There will also be a standard rearview camera.

Among other SE identifiers are new "Callisto" wheels complemented by coloured grey or yellow brake callipers, tinted tail-lights and a black finish on the bonnet, front and rear spoilers and side mirrors.

Like all Gallardos, the SE is equipped with permanent all-wheel drive, a six-speed gearbox, stability control, anti-lock brakes and air-conditioning, plus twin front and side airbags.

Australian allocation is still to be confirmed.
