The 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo's sexy shape is reason enough for most prospective supercar buyers, along with performance that ranks among the best of any street-legal production vehicle. It's become one of the poster cars of this decade, with a shape that really does look like it's moving fast even when it's standing still. The addition of the Superleggera for 2008 only further adds to the manufacturer's reputation.
New for 2008 is the limited edition Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. As performance oriented as the Gallardo is, the Superleggera supersedes the 'base' model, resulting in a more track-focused machine that can still be enjoyed on the street. As alluded to by its name ('leggera' means 'light' in Italian), the Superleggera sheds 154 pounds through the use of carbon fiber components, such as mirrors, door panels, the engine and central tunnel covering, the rear diffuser, and the underbody covering. Decreasing the weight to power ratio even further is a 10-horsepower increase over the regular Gallardo's 5.0L V10, which was accomplished by utilizing more efficient intake and exhaust systems.
The exotic 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo sports car comes in two body styles, coupe and Spyder, with the new Superleggera as coupe only. With a 520-horsepower (530 horsepower on the Superleggera), 5.0L V10 engine powering less than 3,500 pounds, both body styles are among the fastest production vehicles on the market today. The Spyder can accelerate to 62 mph in only 4.3 seconds and can go 195 mph with the top up.
