Edo Competition Gallardo LP600/4 - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Edo Competition is no stranger to modifying Lamborghinis. Its unique touch has graced the Gallardo Superleggera and Murcielago LP640, along with a limited edition Christian Audigier edition Murcielago, among others.

Now the German tuner has taken the Gallardo LP560-4 and given it what it likes to call a little "added spice". The output of the Italian supercar has been bumped to an even 600 horsepower thanks to a new stainless steel exhaust system and an ECU tune, resulting in a claimed top speed of 211 mph. Other upgrades include an adjustable sport suspension system, 19-inch three-piece wheels, and a new front spoiler lip. You can read more details in the press release after the jump and check out the high-res gallery of photos below.

PRESS RELEASE:

600 – 340 – 3.5 ... No, these are not the dimensions of what Santa's about to bring. These are the three most prominent figures of the new edo LP600/4.

600 stands for its power output, 340 for its top speed and 3.5 seconds is how long it takes to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a dead stop.

edo competition has managed to improve performance by increasing power output to 600 horsepower at 7,970 rpm and the torque output to 572 Nm (422 ft-lb) at 6,845 rpm.

Another priority was to upgrade the suspension in order to improve drivability, driving dynamics and precision. edo competition achieved this by employing a newly developed sport suspension system, which is adjustable in compression and rebound damping. This technology allows for custom suspension setups that are ideally matched to a wide range of needs. The low friction shock absorbers and new spring rates were tested extensively on race tracks and high speed ovals, as well as on the road, because handling is not an area for compromise. The result has to be experienced to be believed...

Rounding off the sporty concept are 19 in. three-piece racing wheels with artificially-aged cast center-sections, hand-polished outer rims and 39 stainless steel screws. For the front axle the customer can specify stock tire dimensions or 235/35 ZR 19, while the rear wheels are shod with 305/30 ZR 19 Dunlop Sport Maxx rubber. With this solution edo competition enables its customers to reuse the factory tires on their new wheels.

Another, ever-intriguing topic at edo competition: „The voice".

The new stainless steel high-performance exhaust system with butterfly valves is an attractive proposition. Not only is the sound level adjustable via remote, the exhaust also frees up 15 horsepower and lets the driver enjoy a whole new aural experience. As a welcome side effect, the edo exhaust system weighs 12 kg (26 lb) less than the original piece.

As a result of years of experience with high speed tests, edo competition has reinforced the front end of the edo LP600/4 with a new front spoiler lip, making 340 km/h (211 mph) runs into a relaxing affair.

As promised, lots of extra spice ...

As with all edo competition models, we set no limit to our customers' imaginations. Special interiors or lavish leather upholstery, individual requests are accommodated and executed with quality.

All modifications are carried out exclusively at edo competition Motorsport GmbH in Ahlen.

      I'm not sure about black rims, I mean they look great! But what are they like to own and how ab00t damage?
        • 5 Years Ago
        black rims is pretty much the best thing you can have.
        brake dust from the pads makes them black anyway and eats his way through the paints.

        You buy this car and you can afford to have someone clean your wheels and replace your broken wheels so fast you'll never even know.

        My problem is that glossy black cars with glossy black wheels make the tires stand out as not-so-black, and not-so-glossy. The tires might as well be grey... why not low-pro whitewalls?

      Hot.

      I would gladly accept one of these as a Christmas present if anyone is buying...

      This Lamborghini looks beautiful and the top speed is amazing. But 3.5 seconds is kind of slow for such a light car with so much horsepower.

      "Creates" the Gallardo LP600/4? I wouldn't describe a Gallardo with rims, coilovers, exhaust, and an ECU reflash as an all-new "creation."

      If so, though, AB needs to get started on the several hundred new automotive "creations" parked in my local community-college student lot.

      That V10 just has alot of power still in it. I wonder if they redo the ratio on the gears if it would be faster.
        • 5 Years Ago
        isn't the gear box the most expensive part fo the car, any car?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Pfft. Taking the LP560-4 name and just making out with it as they please.

      Also. It looks neat, but the more I look at it, the more irritating the duo of glossy body and glossy rims becomes... must stop looking!

      loving that front-end overhang
      • 5 Years Ago
      Moved it away from the R8. And I would buy this despite the pricetag... R8 is beautiful, but this is sexy.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow! Nice car.Love the car in glossy black.
