The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain is a special edition
version of the Gallardo which was inspired by the Lamborghini
Blancpain Super Trofeo racing car.
Unlike the race car, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain
is road legal. But the roadgoing car benefits from some of the
technology and engineering developed for the racer.
The Blancpain name comes from name of the luxury Swiss watchmaker
who are the main sponsors of the race car.
Blancpain is not only intensely involved with the Lamborghini
Blancpain Super Trofeo, but is also official timekeeper for
the FIA GT1 World Championship - where Lamborghini cars also
compete against other prestigious marques. In July, Lamborghini
secured its first win in the newly-formed championship at the
Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, where former Formula One
driver Riccardo Zonta and Frank Kechele brought the car home
to a first-place finish.
"Lamborghini is extremely happy about its cooperation with
Blancpain. In just its second year, the Lamborghini Blancpain
Super Trofeo has established itself in the premier league of
gentlemen's racing," says Stephan Winkelmann, President
and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "Each race is a battle
of dedication and passion for every single hundredth of a second
– something that characterizes both of our brands. The Gallardo
LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition demonstrates the close bond between
our road-going super sports cars and the race car."
Powering the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain is a 5.2
litre V10 engine which has been tuned to provide 570 horsepower.
Basically it's the same engine Lamborghini fitted to the
Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. This puts the power-to-weight
ratio of the car at only 2.35 kilograms (5.18 lb) per hp. That
means the vehicle can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.4 seconds.
Top speed is in excess of 199 mph.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition features
several visual clues as to its identify. First off there are
the eyecatching yellow Blancpain graphics - which adorn the
hood, rear bumper, wing, dashboard and door inserts. Then there
is the racing derived rear wing, which is coupled with a new
engine cover designed to offer greater airflow. The car is also
fitted with Skorpius wheels with yellow-painted brake calipers.
One striking visual feature that fits perfectly with the matt
black paintwork is the carbon-fiber used to make external components,
such as the diffuser and mirror casings.
The interior of the Blancpain Edition further reinforces the
extremely sporty character of the Gallardo without sacrificing
the comfort of the driver and passenger. The entire interior
is finished in black Alcantara with yellow accents and visible
carbon-fiber. The Blancpain logo is placed on the exterior and
also featured on the seats and cockpit in yellow stitching.
