Posted: 23 Dec 2010 02:42 AM PST

German car tuners – Anderson have revealed their new upgrade package for the Lamborghini Gallardo and its called the White Edition. This enhancement program gives the Italian supercar new looks and a few extra horses.

The Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White power has been tuned up to 600 hp, thats 40 more horses than the standard 560hp Gallardo and the weight has also been reduced by 22 kg. This extra horsepower was acheived thanks to a re-mapped ECU, a modified air filter and a new sport exhaust system.

The new exhaust system actually comes with a remote-controlled valve that lets you choose between three levels of noise.

The Anderson Lamborghini Gallardo White body kit features a front apron, side skirts, rear bumper diffuser and a rear spoiler all made from carbon fiber. This customized supercar has also been fitted with a new sport suspension system and sits on a set of 20 inch rims.

The interior of Anderson’s white Lambo also features various carbon fiber accents, on the vents, the hand brake lever, the shift paddles, the dashboard, and on the steering wheel.

Anderson Press Release:

As might be expected, the company ANDERSON headquartered in Dusseldorf is unlikely taboo that you could not throw overboard. This company is well-known for its bold solutions for top flight vehicles of different origin exceeding the declared specifications. So this Lamborghini Gallardo White Edition is a further proof of the inexhaustible creativity of this team from the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Performance kit takes the horsepower from 560 to 600 hp. This is done with series of modifications that include the use of software optimization and the addition of a modified air filter and a sport exhaust system with additional Rennkats. The tuning package includes a remote-controlled valve adjusting system that lets driver opt from three different levels of noise and also reduces approximately 22 kg in weight. A special sport suspension module combined with a precise undercarriage significantly changes the driving dynamics. Three-piece, shiny black rims – each with a white painted deep dish – in dimensions of 9×20 inch with 245/30-20 tires in front and 12.5 x 20 inch with 325/25-20 rear provide adequate adherence with the asphalt surface.

Externally visible modifications include carbon trim, widening aero kit consisting of front apron, side skirts, rear bumper diffuser and a rear spoiler. And window and tail light tinting should be mentioned also. The look is completed by LED lights on the sides of the vehicle and contrasting red-painted calipers.

The interior features exclusive white carbon details. There are the vents, the hand brake lever, the shift paddles, the dashboard, the steering wheel, door handle inlays, the shift lever and the border of the internal light in the roof lining.
The seats of the White Racing Edition are finished in black Alcantara and black and white leather; the edges of seats are entirely in white; doors and seats have diamond-shaped stitching.
