The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2’s sharp-edged and dramatic body is built around a structural aluminium space frame, based on extruded parts that are welded to cast aluminium joint elements. It’s highly advanced, light and extremely strong. The panels are aluminium with thermoplastic ‘hang-on’ parts, and the rear spoiler is electronically controlled.
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.
