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

Explaining the car is difficult with limited technical Italian, so there's a dervish mix of arm-waving and pointing to explain why this Gallardo is special. Amidst this impromptu edition of International Give Us a Clue, I manage to clarify that this newest version has a 563bhp 5.2-litre V10 stuffed under a lozenge-themed quick-release carbon rear deck, four-wheel drive, a 193mph top speed and will hit 62mph in 3.4 seconds. That it shaves some 70kg from the regular car, meaning a relatively trim 1,340kg, exactly the same as the current Superleggera.
