Designers and engineers collaborated closely throughout the development phase of
the new Lamborghini Gallardo. The car’s fully integrated design and
technical development has yielded stylistic elements that invariably have an
underlying practical function. At the same time, all technical functions are
implemented aesthetically. The most striking example: the body, which has an
inverted wing profile to ensure optimal aerodynamic flow to provide the ten cylinder mid-engine with sufficient air intake. Its design also generates downforce
at the rear axle, which is reinforced by the automatic controlled rear-spoiler,
activated at 75 mph and retracted by 56 mph.
