Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The successor of the most successful Lamborghini model of all time will go on sale later this year at a price of $198,000. With its help Lamborghini hopes to boost sales to 2,500 units worldwide in 2008.
The Gallardo LP560-4 is powered by the new 5.2 litre V10 engine with an output of 560 PS (412 kW) at 8000 rpm. The increase of 40 PS compared with that of the previous Gallardo, and the approximate 20 kilogram reduction in weight, improves the power weight ratio to 2.5 kilograms per PS (hp) and thus enhances performance. The LP560-4 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, its speed at 11.8 seconds is 200 km/h and its top speed lies at 325 km/h.
