lamborghini gallardo lp560 4 super trofeo 008

As expensive and rare as Lamborghini cars are, they aren't an entirely exceptional sight on the road. But it's a rare occasion indeed to see a whole grid of fully race-prepped Gallardo LP560-4-derived Super Trofeo racers on the street - and that's exactly what's coming this weekend to Norisring, Germany.

This will be the second of the race series' six events. The 570hp (425kW), AWD V10-powered monsters will be thunder down the streets of Norisring June 26-28, with a number of noted drivers at the wheel.

Test driver Achim Winter, driving for Lamborghini München Team Holzer hopes to take the competition to the likes of Germany's Prince Albert von Thurn und Taxis.

“The Super Trofeo had an outstanding debut at Adria, and we are looking forward to a repeat performance in Germany,” said Lamborghini’s Director of Brand and Design, Manfred Fitzgerald. “The street circuit will provide a different challenge for the Super Trofeo, but the racing is set to be just as close and just as riveting.”
