The Lamborghini Squadra Corse is an Italian made supercar made in the view of limited production. This was meant to be Lamborghini’s final edition of the famous Lamborghini Gallardo, so it came with things the normal ones did not. Unlike the normal Gallardos, these were not made for everyone, and only 50 units were made world wide. The car comes stock with a powerful V10 engine that produces 563hp, 0-60 time of just 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 199mph. It is an impressive car by the standards of 2015, and five years later, it has managed to still have one of the most impressive performance numbers. Here’s what makes it special.
The car itself is not one of those rare or exotic cars that can not be driven, it is modifiable and supposedly really easy and fun to drive. These cars still sell at the same price they originally sold for, which is about $230,000, but they never really lose any of their value. Many people have supercharged them for more horsepower, and add cool wraps to them as well. It is basically a rare supercar that can actually be enjoyed.
The Squadra Corse, looks a lot like the normal Lamborghini Gallardo that sells for $85,000, but has a lot of defining features. For example, the fixed rear wing is added for more down force. The name and this feature indicates that it was designed for track performance. Coarse means track in Italian. Also, the car is almost fully made of carbon fiber. The doors have this, the seats have it, and many other defining features have it as well. The bigger wing and bigger engine add weight, so to make the car as light as possible, carbon fiber was used to make it ultra light, yet sturdy.
Another defining feature is the Italian flag that goes along the body of the car. Normal Gallardos do not have that. In the name of exclusivity, Lamborghini did not let you pick what color your car would be, instead, they decided what color you got based in which region of the world you lived in. The colors were Giallo Midas (yellow), Bianco Monocerus (white), Grigio Thalasso (grey), and Rosso Mars (red). This car also has some luxuries, like suede seats and steering wheel for a softer feel. The only downside to this is that it gets dirty very easily.
The Lamborghini Squadra Corse is an amazing car for the value. You get the luxury of owning a supercar, but at the same car that only 49 other people get to experience. It may just be the car that everyone will be talking about in a few years!
