Lambo’s ‘Squadra Course’ Is Even More Extreme
From the legendary GT3 to the Super Trofeo, Squadra Corse, the new racing department at Lamborghini HQ, is already creating a formidable legacy. These wunderkinds are also behind the latest Gallardo, which means this model is the closest to their racing cars yet.
At 10 years old, Lamborghini’s Gallardo might be relatively ancient but each new release, as it turns out, gets more extreme and closer than ever to the Super Trofeo. Which means Squadra Corse is a special edition of an already momentous car.
Squadra Course shares the majority of its components with the Gallardo Super Trofeo, itself based on the Superleggera. Compared with the earlier Gallardo LP 560-4, Squadra Corse has lost a few kilos (70 to be exact) thanks to its carbon fibre construction, resulting in an ultralight curb weight of just 2,954 pounds. Hitting 62mph time takes just 3.5 seconds (mirroring the Superleggera), while it’ll bolt to 124mph in just 10.4 seconds, and top out just shy of 200mph.
The newest Lambo is set apart from the pack by a three stripe detail along its side flanks – in Italian green, white and red, naturally – and for the exterior you can choose from yellow, white, grey and red. If you’re based in the U.S. and want to get your hands on one of the 15 cars headed to American shores, then you’ll have to be a fan of yellow (or Giallo Midas) which is the only option. Although, as that’s Lambos most popular colour, we imagine it shouldn’t hinder sales too much.
