Delivering the super-responsive handling is a suspension system using double wishbones front, rear and full ESP with ABS, ASR, and ABD. None of these driver aids cloud the direct communication that comes from the primary controls and chassis. Performance is, as you would expect, impressive, with 0-100km/h achieved in 3.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 320km/h.
With a dry weight of only 1,380kg, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 has a power-to-weight ratio of 2.51kg per hp, while weight distribution is 43/57 front to rear. The effect of these vital statistics on the road is incredible speed, instant response to steering input, and inspired handling.
To ensure failsafe grip, the aluminium alloy wheels are fitted with Pirelli P ZERO 235/35 ZR19s at the front and P ZERO 295/30 ZR 19s at the rear. Immensely powerful ventilated disc brakes are used front and rear.
