2005 Lamborghini Gallardo by xXx Performance

Posted on by  

While the world is preparing for the launch of the new Lamborghini Cabrera , which is the successor to the Gallardo , German tuner, xXx Performance, decided to offer toss the Gallardo a new kit as a going-away present.

The kit is based on a 2005 Gallardo , and it’s all about transforming the Italian supercar into a real beast. For this the tuner updated the 5.0-liter, V-10 engine with an updated ECU, special carbon air-boxes and a sports exhaust system. With all these changes the engine will now deliver a total of 560 horsepower — up from its standard 512 horsepower — but the tuner also offers three stages of twin-turbo upgrades that will increase the engine’s output to anywhere between 850 and 1,200 horsepower.

Along with the engine upgrades, the tuner also installed a body kit that starts with LSD gull-wing doors and continues with numerous elements made in carbon fiber. The car is wrapped in a special dull black or silver foil combined with neon orange for the side skirts, the inner edges of the front air ducts and the roof edge.

Press Release

Lamborghini has been experiencing an upward trend once again, since the Volkswagen Group took the legendary sports car creation (with the bull in its emblem) under its wing. The flat and polygonal Gallardo has particularly enjoyed immense popularity. The truth however is that Gallardo is fired by “only” a V10 engine and not by a V12 driving power as is traditionally the case with Lamborghini. Moreover, it has no gull-wing doors and is even driven by all four wheels. Meaning that the “small” bull has defied all conventions!

Adrian Bomba of xXx Performance is no stranger to breaking with conventions. The tuning artisan from Bochum causes quite a stir at regular intervals, with extreme conversions. Several Audi R8 wide bodies are now followed by yet another coup: A 2005 model Lamborghini that was reconstructed in a complex manner serves as a basis in this regard. In addition to the traditional LSD gull-wing doors, the xXx Gallardo stands out optically, for a multi-part wide body kit. Viewed in its broad appearance, the Gallardo comes off like a leavened cake thanks to the new front apron in LP560 design and rear apron and the massive side enlargements. For this purpose, xXx Performance endowed the rear with original parts made of real carbon from the Gallardo Superleggera model such as the rear flap, rear wing or also the side view mirror. The reconstruction of the rear light proved technically tricky. The original rear lights of the LP560 model will now be used for this purpose and are henceforth available for purchase exclusively from xXx Performance, as plug and play solution, after a long-drawn development work.

It was all eccentrically showcased through the xXx-typical wrapping. While the bulk of the licensed Lamborghini Gallardo models roll through the roads of Germany in dull black or silver color, Adrian Bomba opted for the more glaring variations. He thus wrapped the external shell in black chrome with the shafts of the side skirt, the interior edges of the front air ducts and the roof edge gleaming in neon orange.

A Gallardo with air suspension is impossible? No. It is possible! With the G-ride air suspension produced exclusively for xXx Performance in combination with the specially adapted and two-fold hardness adjustable KW damping! The system has an electronic level regulation system with integrated, self-regenerating air-drying system from OEM Technology. Exclusive mbDesign KV1 Deep Concave rims turn deeply sunk in the wheel houses in the dimension 9x20 inches with 235/30R20 in front and 12x20 inches with 305/25R20 Hankook S1 Evo tires in the rear. The rims were endowed with black chrome finishing from the company’s own coating shop to match the bodywork.

The wonderfully visible engine deck of the Gallardo was equally slightly reworked. The maximum performance of the V10 aggregate is now boosted to slightly over 560 horse power thanks to the special carbon air-boxes of BMC and the optimization of the engine software. The engine upgrade was accompanied by the company’s own sports exhaust system that is capable of being controlled through Bluetooth. Optionally xXx Performance offers menacing biturbo conversions for the Lamborghini V10 in three power stages from 850 to 1.200 hp!

The tuners from Bochum conclusively endowed the interior of the Lambos with a new exclusive leather fitting with white decorative stitching, top-stitched diamonds and embroidered xXx-logos.
