Following this, numerous limited-edition variants was introduced, with the LP 570-4 Squadra Corse standing out as one of the most exclusive, with only 50 road-legal units made inspired by the Super Trofeo circuit racer. At its core, the Squadra Corse Gallardo boasted a 562-horsepower version of the 5.2-liter V-10 engine coupled with a six-speed “e-gear” automatic transmission, propelling the vehicle to a top speed of 199 mph, aided by robust four-wheel carbon-ceramic disc brakes.

To differentiate it from other Gallardos, Lamborghini added features like a massive rear carbon composite wing, offering triple the downforce of its predecessors, restyled bumpers, and a tricolor stripe adorning the side air intake. Furthermore, extensive utilization of aluminum and carbon fiber materials shaved off approximately 155 pounds, resulting in a curb weight of 2,950 pounds, enhancing its agility and performance.
