Lamborghini has unveiled its limited-edition Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition model ahead of its official Paris Motor Show debut.

Built in celebration of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo racing series, the limited-edition Gallardo is powered by the Superleggera’s 5,2-litre V10 powerplant with 419 kW on tap. According to Lamborghini, the Blancpain is capable of accelerating to 100 km/h from standstill in 3,4 seconds on the way to a 320 km/h top speed. Stopping power comes courtesy of carbon-ceramic disks clamped by yellow-finished calipers.

Among this model’s stylistic touches are a sizeable rear spoiler, a vented engine cover similar to that featured on the Reventon and Skorpius alloy wheels. The cabin features a combination of Alcantara and carbon-fibre trim finishes, as well as yellow stitching that echoes the brake calipers.

"This is a very intense and dynamic partnership between companies from highly disparate sectors, but with the same drive for innovation and mechanical excellence," says Marc A. Hayek, President and CEO of Blancpain. "For me, Blancpain has always been a true revolutionary – even a little crazy – with the spirit of adventure. We have always tried to be a little different, to remain innovative and to attempt things that no-one had ever achieved before. This pursuit of excellence is a passion that is shared by Blancpain and Lamborghini," continues Hayek.

"Lamborghini is indisputably a first-class manufacturer with the highest levels of engineering competence, which is why the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo offers a perfect platform for attracting even more attention to our brand around the world."
