2008 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Preview

Continuing its commitment to launch a new model at every major European motor show for the forseeable future, Lamborghini took the wraps of a fresh version of the Gallardo.

2008 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4Badged the LP560-4, at its heart is a new 5.2-liter V-10 gasoline engine, delivering 552 hp at 8000 rpm. That's an increase of around 40 hp over the outgoing Gallardo. Total body weight is down to 3109 pounds, which is 44 pounds lighter than the old model.

The two-seater will accelerate to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 201 mph. Fuel economy is around 8 mpg, but despite the power hike CO2 emissions are down by 18 percent.

Lamborghini also says the LP560-4 has improved traction, handling and high-speed stability over its predecessor. The suspension is new, the all-wheel drive system has been redesigned and the aerodynamics package improved, in part because of a new rear defuser. Gear changes, controlled by robotized paddles on the steering wheel, are now 40 percent quicker.

Standard features include an electronic rear spoiler, 19-inch wheels, twin front and side airbags, plus stability control. The new headlamps have a daytime function, with 15 LEDs integrated beneath the bi-xenon lamps.
