FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Super sportscar maker Lamborghini is launching two limited edition models at the Frankfurt Auto Show -- a street racing version of the Gallardo and a superlightweight demo model Sesto Elemento.
The Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale has three times the downward force than the standard Gallardo and a higher power to weight ratio for superior handling. Just 150 will be made.
The Sesto Elemento will weigh less than 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) with a power output of 570 horsepower. Just 20 will be produced, each with a sale price of euro1.6 million ($2 million).
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said in an interview Wednesday that the supercar maker expects to reach sales equaling its 2008 heydey by early 2013. Sales have dropped from 2,430 in 2008 to 1,013 in 2010.
