The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 is defined by its use of classic sports car technology – rear wheel drive and an exceptionally powerful engine.
This is extremely unusual for a Lamborghini and extremely good news for drivers who want added excitement when they get behind the wheel.
In order to shape this unique character that combines driving fun and safety, the engineers at Sant’Agata Bolognese have incorporated extensive modifications into the LP550-2.
It was not simply a questions of moving the transmission to the rear axle, the vehicle had to be adjusted and tuned in every element of its driving dynamics. This includes springs, dampers, stabilisers and even tyres. The aerodynamics were also adjusted to take account of the change to the power flow.
The Gallardo LP 550-2 adopts a specific 2WD developed ESP system. This provides a rear with good stability and a front axle that’s precise while entering the turn – enhancing the sportiness and driving pleasure.
