Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini Gallardo

It didn’t take long for SR Auto Group to get the ball rolling this year, did it?

Fresh off of its refreshed Project Phantom program for the Audi R8, the Canada-based auto tuner is now ready to present its first all-new project of the year, which is dubbed Project Limitless.

A program for the Lamborghini Gallardo , Project Limitless is what its name suggests, a program built to prove the Gallardo’s limitless appeal as one of Lamborghini’s most iconic models.

With some assistance from DMC Tuning, SR Auto Group was able to use some of the parts and components from its colleague — a set of carbon-fiber mirrors, and carbon-fiber side diffusers — to enhance the supercar’s already superior functionality.

On top of that, SR Auto Group also added a set of 19-inch Modern Black PUR 1NE wheels. This configuration is particularly noteworthy because the wheels were fitted while maintaining its factory diameter and width, ensuring a perfect stance for the Italian supercar that allows it to be a beast on wheels.

North American tuner, Vorsteiner, has just announced the launch of an all-new Renazzo-V specially upgrade aesthetic program for the Lamborghini Gallardo supercar. The kit can be applied to any 2009 and up LP models, including the LP-570 Superleggera models.

The main part of the kit includes a lightweight carbon-fiber aerodynamic package, but the tuner is also offering a new set of wheels, offered in 1-piece and 3-piece design and in either 19- or 20-inch sizes.

The exterior kit includes a new front bumper with detachable carbon-fiber splitters, new side skirts blade attachments and full side skirt panels with integrated rear vents. Updates continue at the supercar’s rear where the tuner added a new rear bumper with integrated vent openings, a new rear diffuser with center diffuser cooling vent and a new fixed rear wing blade.

The new Lamborghini Renazzo-V Vorsteiner tuning kit will be available for order starting February-March of 2013. Prices will be announced at a later date

Earlier this year, at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, Lamborghini unveiled an updated version of the Gallardo LP 560-4 . Today, the Italian company has confirmed that this Gallardo will indeed be the last edition offered for the aging supercar, as its replacement arrives sometime in 2013.

For the 2013 model year, the Gallardo continues to come with a 5.2-liter V-10 powerhouse that pumps out 552 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 398 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine will mate to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional E-gear transmission. The final-edition Gallardo sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and ends up at a top speed of 201.9 mph.

Updates for the 2013 model year include an updated front fascia with slightly different front bumper, a new engine vent at the rear and a set of all-new 19-inch alloy wheels. Lamborghini is also offering an optional Style package that adds high-gloss black paint on the front spoiler and grilles.

Even if the entire world is waiting for the Lamborghini Gallardo ’s successor - also known as the Cabrera - to arrive on the market, the guys over SR Auto Group have developed a very cool Project Mastermind based on the best sold Lamborghini ever.

The American tuner decided to re-interpret the old tuning packages offered by Hamann and transformed the Gallardo into a supercar ready to enter the fresh new year ahead. SR Auto Group started by adding a new front spoiler with a two piece design: the first one fits the contours of the front bumper with a slight flare at the edges and the second section is a carbon fiber splitter which rests underneath the center of the lip. They have also installed new side skirts and a rear lower spoiler. These new elements have been paint matched to flow with the front spoiler.

The last piece of the puzzle is a new set of 20" PUR 2WO monoblock wheels painted in a very modern matte black.

We don’t know about you, but for sure this car is giving us more reasons to be thankful.

When it comes to police cars, the Italians are among the luckiest ones, as their fleet includes a Lamborghini LP560-4 . These cars should be used to catch the bad guys or patrol the streets, but Marchettino has caught it in action on the track, frolicking with various other supercars.

This police car is based on a Gallardo LP560-4 and is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine, which pumps out 560 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. It uses its power wisely, as it can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. That’s plenty to reel in just about any bad guy’s getaway car.

The LP560-4 Police Car is used by the Italian police to patrol the highway and for the high speed transport of human organs. Delivering human organs? Fed-Ex and UPS might want to get in on this deal…

When you’re a photographer plying your craft in the auto industry, it must be a sweet job getting some alone time with some of the finest supercars on the planet. So excuse us if we have a slight tinge of professional envy when it comes to photography studios like ItzKirb Photography.

In one of ItzKirb’s more recent photo spreads, the man was able to get a hold of a GoldRush Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a Ferrari F430 . Pretty sweet, right?

But what if we told you that they also have Grace, a voluptuous and downright flirtatious model that bared a lot of skin in the photos. There aren’t a whole lot of explanations on this one because the pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

Two supercars and one hot model equates to a photo spread that’s certainly worth your time. So have at it and check out ItzKirb Photography’s new spread in the gallery below.

While the engineers over at Lamborghini are busy developing the successor for the current Gallardo supercar, German tuner Prior Design is still working on improving upon the current model with a new PD-L800 widebody package. This new package transforms the Gallardo into the ultimate street racing machine in terms of looks.

The package starts off with a completely new front bumper with large air intakes and a carbon-fiber lip at the center. In order to make the car look wider, the tuner also installed new front fenders with specially-designed air intakes. The rear has received a newly-developed rear bumper with diffuser, which was then combined with a rear spoiler and special rear widening sections. There is also a roof scoop in DTM style that serves as the cherry on top of the sundae. All of the parts used were made from high-quality Dura-Flex.

The only thing left for Prior Design to add was the one thing that just about any tuner feels is obligatory for all of their packages: a new set of 20" wheels in coveted concave style.

The Lamborghini Gallardo ’s long, amazing run is coming to an end, but fear not, Gallardo enthusiasts, Lamborghini is already preparing the successor for the supercar. During a recent interview at the Sydney Auto Show, Lamborghini Commercial Director Fintan Knight offered a few more details on the model set to replace the legendary vehicle.

According to Knight, the Gallardo successor will continue Lamborghini’s tradition and will be named after a famous bull. We let our fingers do the talking and discovered that the Gallardo is one of five bulls in the famous Miura Cattle Ranch that also included: Cabrera, Navarra, Veragua, and Vistahermosa-Parladé bulls. This allows us to believe that the previous rumors of the Gallardo’s successor being called the Cabrera do in fact hold water.

Knight also confirmed that the new Gallardo will use technologies previously seen in the Sesto Elemento hypercar. As for the engine, he pointed that Lamborghini will remain faithful to the current naturally-aspired V10 engine. He also confirmed that no hybrid technology is being planned for the new Gallardo and that the end of the current generation will also mean the end of the manual transmission.

Lamborghini is adding another race car to its Blancpain Super Trofeo series, which covers six race weekends in different venues with 58 drivers. Their 2013 season will benefit from the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo that was unveiled this past Sunday with a new look for the Italian automaker’s customer racing program.

The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 street version, but adds a look more appropriate for racing. Its added elements include a new spoiler design, a new rear diffuser, and new wheel arches. All these significant lead to a 120% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency over the 2012 model year.

We don’t expect to see any changes under the hood, so the car will most likely retain its usual 5.2-liter V10 engine with 570 HP. But the 2013 model has received remodeled brake ducts that help achieving a 50% improvement in thermal performance with improved front brake cooling. Also, better balance and dynamic performance is achieved by increasing downforce by 282 lbs in low downforce set up and 352 lbs in high downforce trim.

At the official unveiling, Maurizio Reggiani - Head of Lamborghini Motorsport - declared that the"series has significantly expanded its grid, inaugurated a successful championship in Asia, provided a fertile environment for guest and VIP immersion in the Lamborghini brand, and had built a significant following through traditional and burgeoning social media."

UPDATE 10/17/2012: Lamborghini has unveiled new images and a video from the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo’s official debut in the Atalaya Center at the Navarra race circuit. Enjoy!

Seemingly every day another tuner is upping the ante on the potential-filled Lamborghini Gallardo . The latest one we have for you is a 2008 Gallardo Superleggera tuned by Total Race out of Russia. The guys at Total Race installed custom-built CP pistons, Carillo connecting rods, ferrea valves and springs, custom valve guides and seats, custom camshaft, CNC-ported head, billet lower intake, dry sump and custom oil tank on the 5.0-liter V-10 engine. Then they bolted up a pair of Precision 7175 turbochargers that pump 35 psi of boost into the intake.

All of those modifications get the V-10 engine up to an eye-popping 2,000 horsepower – only 1,730 horsepower was measured, due to wheel slip on the dyno. The internal modifications and balancing allows the engine to reach a peak speed of 10,000 rpm.

Total Race then installed a new billet front differential, custom transfer case and electronics, which allows straight rear-wheel drive or 50-50 all-wheel drive. The final addition to the driveline is a set of custom gears inside the Lambo’s 6-speed manual transmission.

The car hasn’t been run on the track since it has hit 2,000 horsepower, but at 1,500 horsepower it ran a quarter mile in just 9.5 seconds at 270 km/h (169 mph) and it rips off a full mile in just 22.18 seconds – a world record — at 395 km/h (245.44 mph). At 2,000 horsepower, Total Race estimates a 7-second quarter mile and 20 seconds to hit a full mile.

There are two videos of this impressive Gallardo, the one above is of the car on the dyno and the one after the jump is of its world-record 1-mile run. Enjoy!
