ENCO Exclusive has created a new customised lightweight carbon fibre based kit for Lamborghini's latest version of the V10-engined Gallardo sports car, the LP560-4 along with a powerful tuning upgrade package.

Dubbed by ENCO Exclusive as the "GT3" kit, the new design front bumper is 100 percent carbon fibre and features three large gills on each side where the fibre strands are clearly visible. Two additional carbon fibre finished aerodynamic components are available to fit both this and the LP560-4 production series bumper: a new front splitter and new design of rear spoiler. The GT3 kit's side skirts may be unobtrusive, but ENCO Exclusive, which hails from the traditionally independent minded town of Chemnitz in Germany hopes that they make the Lamborghini as a whole appear even bigger and stronger. Chasing towards the rear, engine cover for this mid-engine sports car is also now made out of ultra-lightweight but highly resilient carbon fibre. The rear diffuser, door mirrors and the air vents cut into the engine cover are finished in carbon fibre laminate. Top quality matt foil adds a further overall touch, giving the angular Gallardo LP560-4 the looks of a stealth fighter plane.

ENCO Exclusive has also been busy with with replicating the exterior carbon-fibre look on the inside with a comprehensive laminated carbon-effect for the main interior trim finishing parts. The inlay section on the sports steering wheel, the cover that finishes the central console and dashboard and the handbrake all now shine in silvery black, as do the door pull handles and opening catches.

The German designer and tuner has also been at work on the Gallardo LP560-4's muscular 5.2 litre V10 engine. After some serious power treatment the ten cylinder engine, with its famous menacing raging Bull exhaust roar, now has a claimed maximum power of 620 bhp, up 60 bhp on the production standard 560 bhp. The maximum torque of the ENCO Exclusive-tuned LP560-4 is also improved, it now stands at 575 Nm, up 45 Mn on the production Sant'Agata Bolognese-built model's 540 Nm.

Pricing kicks off at 2,990 euros for the full carbon fibre GT3 front bumper. The rest of the exterior components come with a carbon-fibre finish and comprise of a front splitter and rear splitter that can be fitted to either the standard production or ENCO Exclusive's GT3 bumper, priced at 990 and 1,990 euros respectively. The carbon-effect side skirts and engine cover are both priced at 3,990 euros while the exterior kit is completed by carbon fibre laminate components for the rear diffuser, mirrors and boot lid vents at 4,000 euros. Inside the carrbon fibre interior finish kit is 5,000 euros while the matt black foil costs 3,000 euros. ENCO Exclusive haven't priced the engine upgrade.
