Today we bring you a very special matte black Lamborghini Gallardo, this is a LP570-4 Superleggera twin turbo which is a lightweight version of the original.
The first thing you notice is the front … it looks like the 2010 LP570-4 Superleggera because of the new style front bumper that has been mounted, a very popular move these days to get your aging Gallardo looking more contemporary, many owners are mounting either the LP560-4 or the LP570-4 Superleggera unit (or a replica) on their pre 2008 V10 Bulls these days … still the original headlights are a clear giveaway.
Replacing the headlights would also mean a different front hood, and I’m not too sure the wiring wouldn’t need changing, so we don’t see too many pre 2008 Gallardo models that also received the LP560-4 headlights, but they do exist … just like some owners go through even more trouble and replace the rear section to put the later model taillights in place and install a quad tip exhaust system to make their classic Gallardo look like a much younger model.
But the owner of this matte black Gallardo Superleggera went a totally different route, sure he installed a more recent front bumper, but was it for the looks or because the original one got damaged? It would make perfect sense to replace a ruined front with an OEM version of a later model I think, on the other hand the owner did install the high riding rear wing seen on the Super Trofeo Stradale limited edition, instead of the classic red tips this car features bright green on the end plates of this rear wing, the same shade we encounter on the brake calipers.
While we’re admiring these brakes you can’t but notice some of the most beautiful custom wheels for the Lamborghini, made by renowned ADV.1 these are the ADV05.1 SL units in massive 20×9 inch and 20×12 inch at the front and rear, finished in a fashionable matte black powder coating they fit perfectly on this V10 bull in the same matte black finish … these days available as Nero Nemesis straight from the factory, but on the 2007 Gallardo Superleggera this color wasn’t possible.
Also note the decal on the lower section of the doors, the Gallardo Superleggera already had a similar stripe, but this one comes from the later LP570-4 edition, it features the Italian TriColore at the top … do note the owner had the Superleggera script on the door color coded green, to get in line with the rear wing and the brake calipers.
