Super Trofeo Launches in the USA
Lamborghini Dallas is now offering the Super Trofeo race series to our clients in the United States. The series will be a true partnership between Lamborghini America and the dealer network. Super Trofeo is the world’s fastest one-make, all-wheel-drive motorsport series featuring the exclusive racing car, the lightweight version of the road-going Gallardo: the new Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo.Super Trofeo will also deliver the most adrenaline per dollar of any series with 44% more driving time and 66% more race time per weekend compared to its nearest competitors.
As Super Trofeo launches in the USA it will retain the unique V10 engine and 4-wheel drive, and allow drivers to explore higher limits with a focus on state-of-the-art aerodynamics and brake upgrades. The result is higher cornering speeds and better braking. The resulting performance will reward the drivers with a potential of up to 2.0 seconds a lap over the 2012 vehicle.
Lamborghini America plans a grid of between 15-20 cars and early interest from dealers indicates several slots are already spoken for. Events for the 2013 Super Trofeo Calendar are scheduled to begin in May.

Super Trofeo at a Glance
The Super Trofeo was launched in 2009 with the simple aim of being the ULTIMATE One Make Series.
This philosophy was proven with:
» An unmistakeable V10, 5.2 litres engine, 570 bhp
» The only 4-wheel drive GT racer in the world
» The best tracks Europe can offer, mixing both traditional and alluring
» Unparalleled hospitality at the Lamborghini Village
» Broad media coverage on the major motorsport magazines worldwide
» Extended TV coverage on Eurosport
In 2012 Lamborghini Motorsport built on the success of the European series and became truly global by successfully launching the Asian Series with 18 cars representing 8 countries. The European Championship continued its success with 20 cars representing 12 countries with 6 different race winners.
The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo 2013
The 2013 Gallardo is based on the proven chassis and mechanical platform of its predecessor, but takes a significant step forward following extensive aerodynamic re-profiling of the surface geometries and the addition of adjustable aerodynamic devices, including an all-new ten-position rear wing.The net benefit of this significant aerodynamic upgrade is 120% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency over the Gallardo’s 2012 model. With re-modelling of brake ducts, the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo achieves a 50% improvement in thermal performance with improved front brake cooling, while better balance and dynamic performance is achieved by increasing downforce by 128kg in low downforce set up and 160kg in high downforce trim.
While the racing technology advances, Mr. Reggiani emphasizes that the Gallardo provides an efficient and cost-effective platform for customer racing. “We have taken a significant step forward with the aerodynamic performance of the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo, but still the car stays true to our core principles. We believe that it is important to evolve the car, while ensuring Super Trofeo remains an attractive series in which to compete.”
