Lamborghini shows off the Gallardo Spyder

Lamborghini Gallardo Sypder fq

After Lamborghini proudly announced it was bringing a new model to the LA Auto Show many people suspected it would be a convertible, and they were right. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder is the drop-top follow up to the Coupe.

The new folding top runs via a hydraulic pump as well as electric motor that can close and raise the top in around 20 seconds. The headlights have been slightly updated with new LEDs and daytime running lights. As with the coupe version, the Spyder features the new 5.2L V10 producing 552 bhp and 398 lb-ft torque, and the suspension and e-gear transmission upgrades carry over as well. With the reduced weight and added power, the Spyder now reaches 100 km/h in four seconds flat and tops out just over 320 kph.
