Special edition Gallardo has more speed

The car's rear view camera works in combination with the build in multimedia screen facilitates parking.

Other standard features on the Gallardo SE include sports suspensions with the sports steering wheel and P Zero Corsa tyres (specifically developed by Pirelli for more ambitious driving).

Upon request a vast range of additional equipment is available. A customer can choose additionally the robotised gearbox e.gear.

The Gallardo SE benefits from several technical modifications too.

As with the normal Gallardo it comes with a 5-litre V10 engine but instead of 368 kW it now develops 385 kW.

The gearbox also has shorter gear ratios in the first five gears, enhancing the dynamic performance of the vehicle.

The result is also shown in the acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds which improved by 0.2 seconds, achieving a top speed of 315 km/h versus 309 km/h previously.

This is shown impressively on an e.gear equipped car with a feature called "thrust mode", optimising acceleration and gear change from a standing start throughout all gears.
