The beautiful Gallardo was Lamborghini’s entry level car from 2003 until 2013. The Luc Donckerwolke designed V10 baby Lambo was a huge hit and represents the best-selling model in the history of the Sant’Agata Bolognese company as a total of 14,002 were built during their ten year production run backing up V12 bigger brothers, Murciélago and Avenator, while commemorating the company’s 50th Anniversary and built to compete against Porsche 997 GT3 and Ferrari F430 Scuderia in the market place.

Among the amazing successful run for the Gallardo, several (okay, let’s face it, nearly thirty) special and limited editions appeared with subtle tweaks, everything from Spyders, to police cars to Gold Editions to GT3 racing cars and even one named after our friend Valentino Balboni, appear in different configurations, colors and performance packages.

Lamborghini unveiled the Gallardo Superleggera (Super Light) at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show. The name paid tribute to the construction style of the first Lamborghini production model, the 350 GT, designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring with an emphasis on weight reduction.

The Superleggera is lighter than the base model by 100KGs (220lbs) due the use of carbon fiber panels for the rear diffuser, undertray, rearview-mirror housings, interior door panels, central tunnel, engine cover; titanium wheel nuts and sport seats. The engine power was uprated by 10BHP courtesy of an improved intake, exhaust and ECU for a total power output of 523BHP. The 6-speed manual transmission was offered as a no cost option. Production of the Superleggera amounted to 618 units worldwide.

Compared with the regular Gallardo LP560-4, the Superleggera has more dramatic front intake nostrils like those on the Murcielago LP670-4 and they channel more air to the radiators all adding to extra front-end downforce. The diffuser and carbon fiber rear spoiler are larger, providing more downforce as well. The side skirts are flared with carbon fiber running boards accented by Tri-Colore (tri-color) Italian flag with “Superleggera” graphics and also features Polycarbonate engine cover, rear windshield and rear side windows

The Superleggera is shod with 295/30ZR 19 (rear) and 235/35ZR 19 (front) tires mounted on special 19” special Titanium “Scorpius II” wheels by Otto Fuchs for Lamborghini attached by titanium bolts which shave off an additional twenty-nine pounds from the car’s weight.

The engine also features the Audi Sport-inspired Iniezione Diretta Stratificata (direct fuel injection) to help fuel mileage and emissions while increasing power output. The racing derived technology is a variation on the concept of gasoline direct injection which maximizes both power and fuel economy at the same time.

The elegant chassis and body design is continued into the cabin where a sparse but thoroughly ergonomic interior envelopes driver and passenger comfortably with a minimum of fuss, with everything right where it should be. Toggle switches which sit just under the entertainment, navigation and information system, control the various electronic components such as windows, interior and exterior lights and fuel cap all on a concise line across the center of the dash.

Both driver and passenger may manage their own comfort with the dual zone climate control system for air conditioning, fan level and heated seat settings. On top of the dash, three analog dials monitor oil pressure, oil temperature and battery output. There is even a small stash box built into the dash just to the left of the steering column where the driver may stow away valuables. It’s all so civilized that it belies the growling 552-horse V10 engine that sits under the rear bonnet which, oh by the way, is illuminated with an LED lighting system so it’s visible under the tempered glass in the dark.

This 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera (#10881) was originally delivered to our friends at Lamborghini of Toronto, comes to Curated in remarkable overall condition and only 6,450 miles. The classic Ithica Verde (green) accented with the famous Tri-Colore graphics along the running boards and more carbon fiber treatments front to rear which sets the amazing LP570-4 Superleggera apart from other Gallardo examples.

The car also features unique options rarely seen on Superleggeras including small fixed rear wing and factory race seats with green stitching making it one of six in North America and perhaps one of ten in the world and only four examples built with 6-speed manual transmission making this an extremely rare car. This Superleggera represents next the generation of collectors chasing the most rare and unique 6-speed manual cars.

In the market-place, values of Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggeras are holding very strongly against similar market segment Ferrari F430s and 599s, a remarkable testament to the car’s rarity and performance characteristics.

“At Curated, we do not acquire cars simply for inventory but rather based on what the car is. We love interesting provenance, very low production, very low mileage, very special and often weird cars.”
