There is a new “raging bull” from Sant’Agata Bolognese to lust over and it is called the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition.

This new super luxury exotic is the result of the partnership between the Swiss luxury watchmaker Blancpain and Lamborghini. The engineering partnership brings Blancpain Edition styling to the already sexy Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4.

If you follow the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo then you will notice how strikingly similar this car looks to that race car. But of course, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition will be able to be driven on everyday streets.

Looking at the new Lamborghini you can tell it means business: there is a rear spoiler that will offer maximum stability on the racetrack and an engine cover that has been optimized for superior ventilation.

Underneath the hood is a 570 horsepower Lamborghini V10 from the Superleggera production car, which is also used in Super Trofeo racecar. All of this power is kept in check as this Lamborghini also features all-wheel drive, which will come in handy on the track or on your favorite curvy road.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition is also as the “lightest road-going model” produced by Lamborghini.

“Lamborghini is extremely happy about its cooperation with Blancpain. In just its second year, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo has established itself in the premier league of gentlemen’s racing,” says Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “Each race is a battle of dedication and passion for every single hundredth of a second — something that characterizes both of our brands. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Blancpain Edition demonstrates the close bond between our road-going super sports cars and the race car.”
