Lighter, harder, faster - the Superleggera stuns Geneva
If you think it looks good in these pictures, wait until you see it in the metal – from every angle, the Gallardo Superleggera looks phenomenal. Finished in gun metal Telesto grey and carbonfibre, Lamborghini’s lightweight wonder drew crowds 10 deep at its dramatic Geneva unveiling.
