Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale

Research with a Super Trofeo Stradale review

The Good

The 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is one of the world’s elite supercars, with an out-of-this-world V10 engine and outstanding handling.

The Bad

The body styling is in need of an update. Super Trofeo Stradale prices are very high, even in the world of elite automobiles. This is also a very expensive vehicle to maintain and repair.

The Bottom Line

If you’ve got the money and want top-end performance and head-turning style, the Lamborghini Gallardo Trofeo Stradale is a bold and rewarding choice.

Price

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale prices vary by region, but this car is in the premium bracket, even for an exotic automaker. The cost of a base Gallardo is already high, but the Super Trofeo Stradale trim package makes the price astronomical and out of the reach of virtually everyone but the super-rich.

MSRP: $256,300

Average paid: N/A

Performance

Acceleration and power

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570 Super Trofeo Stradale boasts a V10 engine that produces 570 horsepower, which translates into outstanding acceleration and power considering the car’s nimble weight of just 2,950 pounds. According to Lamborghini factory statistics, the Super Trofeo Stradale goes 0 to 60 in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed just a hair shy of 200 miles per hour. Super Trofeo Stradale reviews and road tests also found that the vehicle accelerated from 0 to 120 miles per hour in just 10 seconds.

Lamborghini gearboxes are known for being very finicky, and transmission problems can quickly result from even the slightest continual misuse or mistake during shifting. To compensate, Lamborghini offers the Super Trofeo Stradal with steering wheel-mounted paddles which offer a more precise degree of control over the robotized six-speed transmission. The result is smoother acceleration and diminished wear on the transmission.

Handling and braking

The Super Trofeo Stradale marks Lamborghini’s ambition to offer a race car-quality driving experience to the everyday person, and the vehicle’s incredible handling suggests the famed Italian automaker was highly successful in doing so. This car grips the road with glue-like stick, yet corners perfectly at high speeds. Overall, handling and steering are both very sure, and the power vacuum brakes are capable of bringing the car to a stop from high speeds in a very short period of time, all without risking a loss of control. All-wheel drive is a standard feature, and provides for the surest of handling. According to Lamborghini, the Super Trofeo Stradale’s braking system is a power vacuum configuration, with 8-cylinder front calipers and 4-cylinder rear calipers.

Interior

Seating

The Lamborghini Gallardo Trofeo Stradale is a two-seat automobile; the seats are nimble and lightweight, designed more to avoid adding unnecessary bulk to the vehicle than for comfort. Leather is the default seating material, which is offered in a striking combination of black and red.

Features

The Super Trofeo Stradale has a very limited production run. As such, Lamborghini has released very little information about the vehicle’s interior features.

Cargo space

Maximum cargo capacity specifications were unavailable.

Safety

The vehicle’s unique safety features include anti-roll body construction, as well as anti-squat and anti-dive features. Dual-stage airbags are standard equipment and cover both the driver and the passengers. Head and thorax side airbags are optional.

Specifications

The Gallardo LP 570 Super Trofeo Stradale is newly introduced for 2012. On the whole, the Super Trofeo Stradale isn’t quite as warm and responsive as a comparable Ferrari, but this car’s specifications and standard equipment are nonetheless very impressive.
