Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante debuts in LA

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Performante

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante has made its debut at the LA Auto show. The Spyder Performante has no real ground-breaking changes compared to the Gallardo Spyder, with only a few tweaks and minor improvements. That said though, Lamborghini vehicles are so good to look at and have such unique styling that no one seems to mind.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is lighter, faster

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante fits into the “Open-top Super Sports Car” segment, which Lambo note is a particularly fascinating segment. One of the most notable improvements with the Performante is its weight. The Performante has been made lighter due to a number of components, including: CFRP technology, as well as many of the interior and exterior parts being made from carbon-fibre. Overall the vehicle is 65 kilograms lighter, which has also improved its agility and the fuel efficiency.

Engine Performance

The engine in the Lamborghini Gallardo Performante is a 5.2 litre V10 and produces 419kW (570hp). The performance of the Performante is quite impressive (Hence the naming of the vehicle) and it completes 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds and maxes out with a top speed of 324km/h. Which is a scary prospect for an open-top vehicle.

Another impressive debut for Lamborghini in the books, although to be fair they didn’t try anything too radical and stuck to an already successful formula. Lets hope they treat us to something a little more ground-breaking in the near future.
