Who doesn’t love Lamborghini? In fact, who doesn’t love the sound of any V10-powered European supercar roaring through the streets? In this case, we catch a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Superleggera running laps around a European race track and getting the carbon brakes glowing red under hard braking. In order for such to happen, the brakes reach roughly 1,800-degrees Fahrenheit – something that is far outside the capabilities of standard brake systems. As a $20,000+ option on this Gallardo, these incredible brakes don’t come cheap either. Furthermore, according to the notes from the video, this Gallardo Superleggera has been modified with a SuperTrofeo exhaust system hence the incredible sound as it passes the video camera making it sound more like a jet fighter than a supercar.
It is one thing to have exotic car manufactures create these 200mph machines, it’s another thing to have the owners actually put them to use. In this case a lucky owner not only appreciates the years of research and development of his Italian bull, but lets it do what it knows best – race 10-10ths and get its glowing brakes on!
Enjoy the video and post your thoughts.
