The name Squadra Corse refers to the recentlyfounded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities fromGT3tothe LamborghiniBlancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America where gentlemen drivers battle facetofaceinfiercecontestsonthemostchallengingracetracks. The new Gallardo Squadra Corse is very close to the race cars. Both share the same V10 engine, which is used in the racing version with no modifications. Likewise, the Squadra Corse has the same rear wing for greater aerodynamic load achieving, under the best aerodynamic conditions, three times the load of the Gallardo LP 5604 for increased dynamic stability during tight, highspeed driving. Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood with quickrelease system. Both therear wing and the hood are made from carbon composite material, as are a host of other components ontheSquadraCorse.
