An exciting and long awaited addition to the Italian line the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Sports coupe 2011 does not disappoint. Similar in appearance to the Superleggera, some might wonder why the car wasn't given a name related to that particular model. However, it is understandable why the company decided to give this car its own name, because although it has all the known appearances of a Lamborghini this vehicle certainly stands out from its siblings. This open top sports coupe known as the Performante is more agile, more dynamic and lighter than other versions. Equipped with a 5.2 liter V-10 engine this powerful piece of machinery can reach a top speed of 201 miles per hour.
The engineers must get credit for their work because the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Sports Coupe although roofless is still able to perform as well as its roofed counterpart. This feat is not easily accomplished and many companies have tried and failed terribly at attempting to create a roofless vehicle that looks good and can also perform well on the road. One of the main contributors to the car's speed is the reduction in weight, creating history by creating the lightest open top Lamborghini to ever be sold. The Lamborghini engineers were able to remove up to 143 pounds from its predecessor the LP 560-4 leaving the Spyder with a dry weight of 3274 pounds. Many thought it was next to impossible to reduce the weight of the vehicle, but these naysayers were proven wrong.
At first glance it might be easy to mistake the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Sports Coupe for the Gallardo Superleggera, but despite their uncanny resemblance, this car stands in a league of its own. The company is also able to make sure that their vehicles remain cohesive to the brand yet they each have their own distinct identity and are always able to stand out among their competitors. The Spyder was created to do just that and it doesn't disappoint. Many have been eagerly waiting for this roofless Lamborghini and lovers of the brand will be impressed with the sleekness of the vehicle and the company's ability to keep it powerful even without the roof element. It is hard to not like this addition to the line as it certainly gives other roofless vehicles such as Ferrari 458 Italia and the Porsche a run for their money.
Another noteworthy comparison is the 2012 Jaguar XKRS convertible dubbed as the fastest sports car made by jaguar.
