Top Gear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS
Flat out across Italy in the extreme new Super Trofeo Stradale. The perfect day?
Posted: 21 Mar 2012
Every now and then, I catch a glimpse of the car's shadow cast against a rock face and get reminded of that enormous wing. But it makes very little difference to cornering speed on a road that barely lets you crest illegality. What it really translates into is stability at speed. On the autostrada going slightly faster, the wing manufactures pure unwavering solidity. This car feels utterly unflappable, nailed to the road with bolts of titanium, almost as if it doesn't want to swap lanes and the wheels have turned exceptionally gyroscopic. Basically, this car feels more resolute at 120mph than 70mph.
