Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera Devours The Nurburgring

With Lamborghini having rolled out the entire Huracan family, including the hardcore Performante, we don’t get to see or write about the Gallardo anymore.

However, despite becoming more affordable to purchase a properly maintained example, Lambo’s previous entry-level supercar is still alive and kicking, with some owners unleashing it on various tracks.

One of them has been spotted having loads of fun on the Nurburgring. This is not your average Gallardo, but the Superleggera version. Moreover, it appears to be the 2007 model, and not the newer LP570-4, which means that its 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V10 makes ‘just’ 530PS (523hp) and 510Nm (376lb-ft) of torque.

The V10 works together with a six-speed automatic transmission to channel the output to all four wheels. The Superleggera needs only 3.8sec to sprint from rest to 100km/h (62mph) and it maxes out at 315km/h (196mph), and being the more driver-focused variant of the Gallardo means it’s offering lots of driving thrills.

Buying such a supercar still requires paying well over $120,000, but opt for the newer one, which packs 570PS (562hp) and 540Nm (398lb-ft) of torque, and the sum will almost double. A barely driven “normal” Gallardo still costs about $100,000, but if mileage is not a problem, then you could always have one for under $80,000, or even less, if you look around a bit.

This, though, is not a video about buying or owning costs, but of the baby Lambo hitting the ‘Ring, so just scroll down and hit the “Play” button to enjoy it.
