Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

Lamborghini are becoming increasingly good at creating cars with extremely long names. Of course, when the cars are this ostentatious, a snappy title just won't do.
The LP570-4 Superleggera is aimed squarely at the Ferrari 458 Italia, its acid green paintwork a clear statement of intent. The (frankly insane) choice to use RWD on the Balboni hasn't been carried over to the Superleggera, but that makes it no less of an animal: 562bhp from the 5.2-litre V10, liberal use of lightweight-weave carbon-fibre and lightweight forged alloys equate to a 0-62mph time of 3.4s and a claimed top speed of 202mph. It'll cost the thick end of £170k but hey, you get what you pay for...
