Top Gear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS
Flat out across Italy in the extreme new Super Trofeo Stradale. The perfect day?

There's no radio, and most of the interior is bare-faced carbon, so vibration and that yowling V10 have been my only companions, the combination of which mean I can almost taste the noise on my back teeth. And it is - still - wonderful. But too soon we have to retreat. Back down through the forests and hills, up and out to the A14 autostrada, a blast back to Lamborghini HQ. Where the car is returned with 614km added to the odometer. As we drive away, the Gallardo is parked up in front of Lamborghini's gleaming, glass-fronted edifice, dirty and magnificent as a counterpoint. And I start to think.
