The mysterious Lamborghini teaser that talked about a "super sports car" headed to Frankfurt has now been addressed, and just as Lamborghini anticipated, the car isn’t what we thought it would be.

Okay, we got the part about the Gallardo right, but it’s not the eventual successor to the popular V10 as we initially thought. Instead, it’s going to be the final version of the Gallardo that Lamborghini is going to release. It’s a street-version of the Gallardo Super Trofeo.

As the days of the Gallardo draw to a close, Lamborghini wants it to go out on a high note so the company is preparing a 30-piece limited edition model that will take all of the Super Trofeo’s characteristics and turn them into a road-ready supercar. You can definitely expect this model to carry the same 5.3-liter V10 engine of the race version, good enough to produce an output of 570 horsepower while also carrying a six-speed e-gear transmission, an all-wheel drive configuration, a huge rear wing, and sturdy as heck racing suspension, all while shedding over 220 lbs from the standard version’s weight.

The reduced weight of the Gallardo ST comes courtesy of a reworked chassis with added carbon fiber bodywork, a lighter racing seat, a special racing brake system, and a racing steering wheel and instrument panel.

Just in case you’re still not geeked up for the Frankfurt Motor Show, this new development just made the show all that more interesting.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I love its abstract design, I can say that it is absolutely very striking and remarkable, not only on its looks but with its impressive engine and powerful horsepower either.

At last! This super sports car will now come to Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany. Many people will surely wait for the unveiling of this one. Speaking about the car, I like the styling which is unique and the reduced weight will really help to reach its highest possible speed. I can’t wait to see this one in public.

hmm. So Lamborghini has finally built the final production of the Gallardo. I don’t think that there’s any reason to be sad for I believe that as long as there’s an aftermarket company a tuned up version for this car is possible.
