Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

Apparently there has been some criticism on how modern Lamborghinis have become no more than Audis on steroids (especially with the introduction of the Audi R8), so president Stephen Winkelmann has announced a new policy that future common parts with the rest of the Volkswagen/Audi bin will not exceed more than 20%.

The 20% will include things like electrics, hoses, filters, and other more “hidden” components which will not affect Lamborghini’s “DNA” as perceived by enthusiasts.

In the same interview Winkelmann also confirmed two more versions of the Lamborghini Gallardo – a rear-wheel drive version and another track-focused barebones lightweight version like the Superleggera (shown above). The current Gallardo uses a rear-biased all-wheel drive system.
