……can you all tell I’m lovin’ every minute of this?
Lamborghini combines sporting excellence, extreme performance, and open air driving with the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante. Sant’ Agata Bolognese set a new benchmark in open top super sports cars. Its trimmer thanks to the CFRP technology in its design making it more agile yielding dynamics found in the race car circuit. Leave it to Lambo to design street legal vehicles with the track clearly evident not only in performance but the overall look of its bodywork. (YOU GO LAMBO!!!)
The Spyder Performante’s weight reduction is due in no small part to the carbon-fibre technology. Automobili Lamborghini has led the industry for 30 years with carbon-fibre components. It is such a versatile material, everything from monocoque construction and its rigidity, to CarbonSkin, a superlight carbon-fibre material patented by Sant’ Agata Bolognese that is supple enough for upholstery and interior cladding. CarbonSkin is lighter than cowhide. Carbon composite materials are perfectly suited to supercars because they combine reduced weight with improved technical attributes that make an excellent power-to-weight ratio.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante has less weight and more fascination. The alloy V10 engine with a displacement of 5.2 litres produces 570 hp @ 8,000 rpm. It sprints from 0-62 in just 3.9 seconds. Its top speed is 201 mph. Lamborghini is the purveyor of the supercar with super-performance. The direct injection fuel delivery system affords reduced fuel consumption and smoother operation………………………………you know!!!
The Bodyshell of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is made from aluminum attached to an impact-resistant spaceframe. The stiff framework and superlight body form the basis for precise handling. It uses CFRP throughout, including the interior. The console, door panels, and various other trim and components are made from this space-age material. It makes a significant contribution to overall weight reduction. Even the seats reduce weight, their seat shells are carbon-fibre covered with superlight Alcantara. The Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is a network of carbon-fibre technology. YOU GO…..LAMBO!
The engine is also an extreme work of automotive art. It features an aluminum crankcase, dry-sump lubrication, with a 90 degree cylinder angle. This sophisticated alloy power plant has an adjustable intake manifold and continuous control of the chain-driven camshafts. The Lamborghini specialty of alternating ignition intervals of 54 and 90 degrees provides the compelling racing-car sound from the V10, and as the revs rise, resounding bass notes are overlaid with razor-sharp harmonics. This is no joke; they tuned the exhaust to work with the engine to produce an unpretentious “growl!” YOU GO…..LAMBO!
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante’s running gear layout is motorsport inspired. The suspension features aluminum double wishbones with precise rack and pinion steering. Its permanent all-wheel drive offers exceptional traction and stability at high speeds. The patented e-gear transmission operated via shift paddles behind the steering wheel shifts through its six gears imperceptibly, faster than human intervention. The “Thrust” mode delivers maximum performance and is programmed to manage starting revs of around 5,000 rpm with minimal wheel slip.
The Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante comes standard with power windows and air conditioning. Through the Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program, sky is the limit for choices. Alcantara upholstery and a hand stitched steering wheel clad in suede accents the sporting luxury of this phenomenal supercar. Available multimedia navigation system, rear view camera, and a system for elevating the front end to clear obstacles are just a few of the options.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is another rolling work of art from Sant’ Agata Bolognese with love…..Power, performance, and presence, so typical with Lamborghini are evident in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante. It is open top supercar performance like no other car can perform. The refinement is a process of evolution that Automobili Lamborghini applies to perfecting their super sports cars. Happy 50th Anniversary to the “House of the raging bull!” YOU GO…..LAMBO!
I am dedicating all of the Lambo posts to all of my friends out there that take the time to visit my site! Hello to my friends at Sant’ Agata Bolognese!!! I have enjoyed this like you would not believe!! Lamborghini is my favorite car in case you hadn’t noticed. I could write about them forever and a day and never run out of things to say about their ingenious innovation by evolution process. Time doesn’t stand still….neither does Sant’ Agata Bolognese……I watched them grow from Ferruccio Lamborghini’s entrance into a world that he inspired with cars like the Miura……that was the first car to run the competitors scared! I loved it! Car was so hot, you needed asbestos gloves to drive it too! BURNT UP the asphalt then made its own path…..Lambo has always been a pioneer, you will hear me say this nest phrase over and over: Lamborghini has gone to where no other automaker has ever gone before………their imagination, their foresight into the future harnessing it and bringing it for us TODAY! Hello to the U.K…..I love you! Thank you Lamborghini for making this tribute possible!!! ………………………”you know!!”
