BF Performance sheds 101 pounds off the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

So you’re pretty rich and own a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and were pretty disappointed to see that Lamborghini finally released the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show because you’d much rather have the most exclusive Gallardo ever (yes, we know, we doubt anyone reading this article feels that way).

Either way, if you happened to be in this situation you may want to contact BF Performance. The tuning house has just released a set of new modifications for the Gallardo LP560-4 coupe and Spyder. The package consists of new body parts are made entirely of carbon fiber. The parts include new side skirts, rear diffuser, a rear wing and a set of wing doors.

After all the work, the weight of the LP560-4 is dropped by 101 lbs, as compared to the 154 pounds lost by the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.

BF Performance says they also tuned the engine but didn’t provide any technical details.

Follow the jump for the press release.

BF Performance Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4:

Press Release:

* Entirely new aerodynamics kit made of carbon
* Wing doors for the special appearance
* If desired the Gallardo can be equipped with rear-wheel drive
* Engineer design with carbon in optional colour

In the Swiss city Zug, perfection has a different meaning than in the Italian town Sant”Agata Bolognese. While Lamborghini is satisfied with the Gallardo LP560-4, the Swiss have higher demands ““ at least the engineers at BF-performance. For them, the Gallardo is too innocent and neither dynamic nor individual enough. Therefore, they turn both the Coupé and also the Spyder into the GT600 which has a stronger performance, more self-confidence and looks more aggressive.

Optimised under-body aerodynamics is guaranteed by the side skirts and the rear diffuser which are both also made of carbon. The striking carbon rear wing renders additional down thrust. Its edged design perfects the design language of the Lamborghini and gives the Gallardo the finishing touch.

The wing doors render a significant amount of individuality, but are strictly limited to Lamborghini models with twelve-cylinder engines. Due to the refinement by BF-performance, also the GT600 with a V10 engine can be equipped with doors which are so typical for Lamborghini.

And of course the engineers also focused on the engine performance. BF-performance has confirmed the performance of the new automobile in an impressive race. On the Sachsenring round course, the GT600 even managed to beat the stronger Lamborghini Murciélago LP640-4 SV by an impressive lead of 0.6 seconds

For the special individualisation, BF-performance offers a unique amendment: it can be modified from a four-wheel drive car to a rear-drive super car. This way, the GT600 combines the exclusive feature of the Gallardo LP550-2 “Valentino Balboni” with increased performance. The new engine concept and 43 kilogramme of saved weight render a unique driving experience.

The interior also follows this dynamic maxim. Apart from the sports bucket seats, BF-performance also offers five-point belts, a roll-over cage and a carbon-ceramic braking system with which the GT600 meets the highest racing standards. BF-performance visually adjusts the interior to the increased dynamics. The manufactory uses carbon on the steering wheel, door handles, ventilation grids and even at the switch casings. The customer can even opt for carbon in his favourite colour.

BF-performance offers the entire car with all components either as the sporty Coupé GT600 or also as the Roadster GT600 Spyder.

The entire automobile confirms the perfection and passion for detail applied by BF-performance. The Lamborghini specialist has already gained experience with the predecessor model and now brings its art of engineering into perfection with the GT 600. Also Lamborghini”s design development confirms the talents of BF-performance, as the Swiss specialist is always one step ahead of the Italian manufacturer.
