2007 IMSA Gallardo GTV
Jan 20, 2007 – Until recently, the German tuning company IMSA was not more than just an insider tip. But by now, it has achieved the ultimate breakthrough thanks to its – rst product, the Gallardo GTV. After all, the company from Brüggen treated the Gallardos power unit like nobody dared before.
After this special treatment, the V10 power unit develops maximum output of 610 hp at 7900 rpm. In the near future, it will also be possible to experience this pleasure in an open car – since all GTV parts are now available for the Spyder as well.
Special emphasis was made on road capability.
In spite of the increased engine power and the high torque of 655 Nm at 5300 rpm, IMSA wanted the Gallardo to be suitable for every day use; it had to over the best possible driving fun even under bad weather conditions. Therefore, the four-wheel drive – amongst other things – was adjusted to the new performance. Even during extreme driving manoeuvres, the Gallardos ne-tuned sport chassis offers great stability and driving control. The necessary grip is provided by broad 245/30 ZR 20 front and 325/25 ZR20 rear tyres.
IMSAs focus was on muscular design and, thus, the Gallardo Spyder is equipped with new front and rear aprons and flared wheelarches as well as distinctive spoke wheels with central locking and a discreet rear spoiler. The interior is designed to meet any customers individual wishes: leather, alcantara, aluminium and CFRP are on offer to revive the Gallardos cockpit.
