Any racecar with a five-liter engine has the ability to deliver S&M aural pleasures (read: it will make your ears bleed, but you’ll probably be begging for more), and yet certain contraptions are more special than others. Keeping with the kinky theme mentioned above, we want to bring you the automotive equivalent of a bullwhip. A V10-powered bullwhip, that is.
We’re talking about the Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo racer. Japanese tuner Liberty Walk is no stranger to this, sponsoring one of these motorsport Lambos. While the aftermarket developer wasn’t allowed to install its signature kit on the Gallardo, the thing is wide enough in standard form, so we won’t mind that.
Still, we are here to talk about the soundtrack of this Gallardo, with the video below giving you a good idea of what happens when machines built in Sant’Agata Bolognese enter the racing realm.
Lamborghini has used an interesting scheme with the Gallardo. After modifying the road version of the supercar and releasing the Super Trofeo racecar, the company released a street-legal version of the latter, which was called Super Trofeo Stradale (you can read our review of the road-going Super Trofeo here).
Once the Gallardo received its final facelift, the move was translated to the racer, leading to the street-legal special edition being renamed as the Squadra Corse.
In terms of diversifying its line-up, the Italian supercar producer might have learned a thing or two from Porsche, with the German company being the most special edition-savvy carmaker on the market.
Now that the Huracan has taken over, we’re waiting for Lamborghini to use its special edition wand on the Gallardo’s replacement. So far, the only street-legal special edition out there is the rear-wheel-drive Huracan LP580-2, but give the company a bit of time and things will fall into V10 place. By: autoevolution
