Default BF Performance Lamborghini Gallardo GT600

•Entirely new aerodynamics kit made of carbon
•Wing doors for the special appearance
•If desired the Gallardo can be equipped with rear-wheel drive
•Engineer design with carbon in optional colour

In the Swiss city Zug, perfection has a different meaning than in the Italian town Sant'Agata Bolognese. While Lamborghini is satisfied with the Gallardo LP560-4, the Swiss have higher demands – at least the engineers at BF-performance. For them, the Gallardo is too innocent and neither dynamic nor individual enough. Therefore, they turn both the Coupé and also the Spyder into the GT600 which has a stronger performance, more self-confidence and looks more aggressive.

The refined appearance immediately catches the eye with the new aerodynamics kit which BF-performance produces entirely in carbon. The elaborate processing of this high-performance material combines extremely light weight with supreme durability. This allows the Lamborghini specialist to implement an optimised aerodynamics concept.

At the front, this shows in voluminous air inlets of the especially developed front spoiler which follows the shape of the Lamborghini top model Reventón. This way, BF-performance does not only improve the driving behaviour, but also gives the Gallardo a significantly aggressive appearance and an increasingly racy look.

Optimised under-body aerodynamics is guaranteed by the side skirts and the rear diffuser which are both also made of carbon. The striking carbon rear wing renders additional down thrust. Its edged design perfects the design language of the Lamborghini and gives the Gallardo the finishing touch.

The wing doors render a significant amount of individuality, but are strictly limited to Lamborghini models with twelve-cylinder engines. Due to the refinement by BF-performance, also the GT600 with a V10 engine can be equipped with doors which are so typical for Lamborghini.

And of course the engineers also focused on the engine performance. BF-performance has confirmed the performance of the new automobile in an impressive race. On the Sachsenring round course, the GT600 even managed to beat the stronger Lamborghini Murciélago LP640-4 SV by an impressive lead of 0.6 seconds.

For the special individualisation, BF-performance offers a unique amendment: it can be modified from a four-wheel drive car to a rear-drive super car. This way, the GT600 combines the exclusive feature of the Gallardo LP550-2 'Valentino Balboni' with increased performance. The new engine concept and 43 kilogramme of saved weight render a unique driving experience.

The interior also follows this dynamic maxim. Apart from the sports bucket seats, BF-performance also offers five-point belts, a roll-over cage and a carbon-ceramic braking system with which the GT600 meets the highest racing standards. BF-performance visually adjusts the interior to the increased dynamics. The manufactory uses carbon on the steering wheel, door handles, ventilation grids and even at the switch casings. The customer can even opt for carbon in his favourite colour.

BF-performance offers the entire car with all components either as the sporty Coupé GT600 or also as the Roadster GT600 Spyder.

The entire automobile confirms the perfection and passion for detail applied by BF-performance. The Lamborghini specialist has already gained experience with the predecessor model and now brings its art of engineering into perfection with the GT 600. Also Lamborghini's design development confirms the talents of BF-performance, as the Swiss specialist is always one step ahead of the Italian manufacturer.

Looks totally fabulous. And these are by far the best default alloys given by a company . Totally love them.
Just one thing , they could have made the rear look less heavy.Looks kind of bloated.

I Agree, I think the Rear diffuser and bumper is the major cons. And the front lip too and the spoiler. er, minus these we have stock gallardo. Again, with the performance mods it is a . No cosmetics needed than the deadly rims.

This is not the most beautiful LP560 for sure. There are better tuners than BF. But nevertheless it's a Lamborghini Gallardo, and it ought to be gorgeous

Would you like to be Valentino Balboni? That is because he had, till recently, a job that every guy would give both arms and both legs for. He was the chief test driver for Lamborghini. His missiion was to test every Lamborghini ever made. Testing on the streets of Italy because Lamborghini does not have a test track. Having a special licence to do so. The only man in Italy to have this licence.
God. I would be a workaholic and clock up some serious overtime.

with black diffuser ,it cools great and leaves a great impression,I think BF would have painted it in Black. How about the matte Black for this BF gallardo?

No dude, they are different diffusers. Take a close look at the more upright diffuser blades.
