Los Angeles/Sant´Agata, Bolognese (Italy) – Automobili Lamborghini, creator of the world’s most exclusive super sport cars, held the worldwide debut of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560—4 Spyder at the Los Angeles Auto Show. As the successor to the best-selling Lamborghini of all time, the new LP 560-4 Spyder combines the coupé’s design, performance and handling characteristics with the open-air pleasure only a soft top super sports car can deliver.
“The new LP 560-4 Spyder adds another dimension to the Gallardo’s lineage with extreme design language and class-leading performance,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The open version of the successful Gallardo LP 560-4 is the result of Lamborghini’s two model strategy including the Gallardo and Murciélago.”
The much anticipated Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder offers a new 5.2 liter engine with 40 additional horsepower than its predecessor; allowing it to sprint from 0-62 mph in only four seconds with a top speed of 201 mph. The car’s agility has also been greatly refined with a new, lighter transmission, which allows increased shift times by 40 percent (Corsa Mode), combined with an all-new chassis, suspension and Lamborghini’s permanent all-wheel drive system. Despite increased performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 18 percent.
