Hot Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante

The new Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is a lightweight version of Lamborghini's open-topped super sports car.

Compared to the Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder, Lamborghini engineers have managed to reduce the weight of the new Spyder Performante by a further 65 kilograms.

The open super sports car tips the scales with a dry weight of no more than 1,485 kilograms.

Performance is optimized as a result of lower weight, while CO2 emissions are reduced.

The V10 power unit with a displacement of 5.2 litres generates 570 hp, catapulting the car from 0-62 mph in a mere 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph.

The direct-injection engine has extremely impressive pulling power and a virtually endless rev range with Lamborghini's suitably spine-tingling acoustics.

Exterior modifications are all directed at increasing the aerodynamic effect in comparison to the Gallardo Spyder.

Working closely with wind tunnel experts, designers from Lamborghini's Centro Stile remodeled the front bumper - three-dimensional, deeply recessed elements form trapezoidal frames for the large air intakes.

Together with the V-shaped, sharply defined nose and the LED daytime running lights, the black elements give the front end a razor-sharp look.

The design also optimises the supply of cooling air and improves the downforce on the front axle.

Modifications to the fully covered underbody, new sill elements and a redesigned diffuser incorporating four large tailpipes also help to achieve better aerodynamic results.

A large optional rear spoiler is also available for the Spyder Performante.

Finally, on the inside the cockpit and sports seats are clad in lightweight Alcantara instead of leather.
