2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera: Super Light, Super Bright, Super Cool

Let’s cruise with this orange (Arancio Borealis) 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera.

“Superleggera” means “Super Light” – this lightweight, track-oriented version is about 220 lbs lighter than the standard Gallardo – lots of carbon fiber goodies! Carbon fiber door panels, side skirts, rear diffuser, side mirrors, engine bonnet/cover, rear wing, interior dash panels, seats, onboard espresso machine…ok, ok, maybe not the espresso machine, but you get the idea! Add in lightweight Alcantara all over the interior (lighter than leather cows) with orange stitching and it’s just badass!

Oh, and it also happens to have that iconic 5.0 Liter V10 engine, with 530 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph in 3.8 seconds. Top speed of 196 mph.

Reportedly, 172 Superleggeras were made – 46 in orange, 45 in yellow, 37 in black, 10 in white, and 1 was custom-painted in pink (who knew!).

And the stock exhaust is one of the best-sounding exhausts you’ll hear!
