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
It has a roll cage, impressive but bloody irritating four-point harnesses and an adjustable rear wing nicked virtually wholesale from the Blancpain Super Trofeo racing cars. All conflated to make this roadgoing (Stradale) version, of which there will be only 150. Oddly, our car is badged ‘0' from 150 - layering another element of confusion into the Italian/English language tangle. Not bad considering I couldn't for the life of me remember the Italian word for ‘light'. It would have been simpler to assert that this is, in basic shorthand, a Gallardo Superleggera with wings and STS badges that costs £195,000. But I couldn't remember the Italian for ‘Superleggera'.
