The luxury lifestyle never gets sluggish…as there are new toys constantly emerging from the imagination to the production phase. Like the Lamborghini Superleggera LP 570-4, which is coming in 2011.
This 2011 Lamborghini is estimated to hit the $240,000 pricing mark, pretty standard for exotic cars and luxury car rentals. That does not, however, indicate that this is in any measure a standard luxury car! The regular Gallardos are around $200,000, so expect to shell out the extra $40-$50k for the specialized Superleggera.
The Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera boasts a powerful 5.2-liter V10 engine kicking out 562 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. This is the lightest Lambo to date, as the engineers have shaved off 154 excess pounds, thanks to the wonders of luxury carbon fiber. The name Superleggera actually means “super light”. So why all the fuss about its weight? I mean, it isn’t an attention-starved supermodel. The answer is simple: Lighter supercars go faster.
In fact, the 2011 Superleggera has the bragging rights of hitting the famed 0-60 mark in 3.3 seconds, which is worth the extra $40,000 buyers will gladly shell out for that. Tenths of a second are priceless when it comes to track time. You can’t be racing your buddies in your new Lambo on the weekends and come up short- it is considered poor performance.
This Lambo has a 6-speed automated manual, and gets decent mileage for a luxury car, 14-mpg city and 20 highway. Complaints in track testing include a wiggly rear, which you would not expect on such a hot and tight body.
The Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera is in direct competition with the likes of the new Ferrari F430 Scuderia. We did get a snap shot of this car at the Setai in Miami during the Lamborghini LP 570-4 Supergeggera unveiling, click here to view. I think it would make a stunning addition to any fleet of luxury rental cars, and look forward to meeting it up-close and personal next year!
