Germany’s Edo Competition is an expert when it comes to modifying ultra-rare exotics so who better to tune one of Lamborghini’s fastest and most hardcore cars ever produced – the limited edition Gallardo Superleggera. Squeezing more power from the car’s highly strung V10, where peak power levels are developed at lofty heights of close to 8,000rpm, is no easy task but the tuners at Edo have managed to churn out 560hp (411kW) at 8,250rpm – the same as the recently launched LP560 model.

Combined with a max torque of 398ft-lb (540Nm) at 6,800rpm, the Edo Competition Gallardo SLE will sprint to 62mph (100km/h) from rest in just 3.7 seconds, from 0 – 124mph (200km/h) in 11.7 seconds, and go on to reach an estimated top speed of 199mph (320km/h).

The increase in power was achieved via the addition of a new high flow catalytic converter, carbon fiber air intake system and a recalibrated ECU. Engineers also added an exhaust valve system that can modify the volume of the exhaust system at the push of a button.

Other modifications include a 15mm suspension lowering kit, smoked turn signals, a new tire-pressure monitoring system and optional 19in three-piece alloy wheels.
