LA Auto Show: Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante
There are two things which Lamborghini does better than just about anyone else: high performance and incredibly long names. And if the outgoing Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce wasn't enough for you on either front, the Italian automaker has now unveiled its latest: the Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante.
Unveiled in Los Angeles, the Spyder Performante is the ultimate convertible Lamborghini. Think of it as a Gallardo Superleggera, only without a roof. Compared to the "standard" Gallardo Spyder, the Performante version drops some 140 pounds of excess weight thanks to the extensive use of that magical material: carbon fiber. The aerodynamics have also been improved, helping the Spyder Performante accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds, according to Lamborghini, but we wouldn't be surprised if it were even quicker than that.
