Click above for a gallery of the Reiter Engineering Gallardo GT3 Strada

Turning road cars into race cars and then back into road cars seems to be Reiter Engineering's new specialty. The factory-supported Lamborghini race team, which also recently built a street-legal variant of their Murcielago R-GT that competes in the FIA GT1 and European Le Mans Series, is now offering a road version of their Gallardo GT3 racecar. Based off the standard Gallardo with the 5.0L V10, the "Strada" features carbon fiber bodywork including fenders that have been widened 60mm, a new front fascia with "shark" style air ducts, side skirts and a large carbon fiber wing at the rear. A single large center-mounted exhaust system reduces weight by nine kg and added an extra ten horsepower, while new three-piece alloy wheels are wrapped with ultra sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 2 rubber. The interior stays relatively stock, although the stock seats have been replaced with leather-covered racing units. While we wouldn't say the result is subtle, it's definitely one of the cleaner designs we've seen.

      A bit late, I guess this is kind of a last-hurrah for the outgoing Gallardo...

      And anyways, a bigger hurrah for a tuned exotic that hasn't got: wheels bigger than the London Eye, more pinstriping than a hippie's VW van.

      All in all, a pretty subtle car, and a sweet looking exhaust.

      I hope its better than the Fiat Strada.

      Why not use the new one?

      It looks good though.

      Best looking Gallardo I've ever seen.
      • 6 Years Ago
      blah.....kinda tired of this car...

      Way to ruin the front by those ghastly air dam grills, should've just left those big square holes alone.

      Eye-candy like this is the reason why I visit Autoblog every day.

      I'd drive that car even if it has funny side gills and mismatched taillights.

      This will probably the base for the Gallardo rallycar... (look in YouTube).

      Why are you calling these Reiter models Strada? The company is from Germany so it should be Strassenversion.

      BTW this model is over a year old.

      Look at the backlights, they're not the same... One white and one red, like the European VW Passat.. I really hate that.

        nighttime: It looks terrible.
        Jared: I know it is.
        • 6 Years Ago
        What a trivial thing to nag about.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I believe that is because they are rear fog lights. I know some cars will have a single brighter light (usualy red or orange) so you can see the back of the car in thick fog.
