Latest version of Lamborghini Gallardo Super Sport that received Superleggera treatment, it power-driven by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that makes 562 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 398 lb.-ft maximum torque at 6500 rpm. that makes 10 more horsepower than the one in the regular Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, lamborghini also shaved it weight by 143 pounds which would place this car around 3700 pounds.
Between the weight savings and the horsepower boost, Lamborghini boasts that the Spyder Performante can dispatch a 0-to-60-mph run in 3.8 seconds on its way to a 201-mph top speed. We figure the acceleration claim to be conservative, though, and would expect a time in the low threes for a 0-to-60-mph run. The Spyder Performante features a sportier suspension tune than on regular Gallardo Spyders, as well as special rubber. Lamborghini’s e-gear transmission, an automated single-clutch system, is standard, but the excellent six-speed manual with its gated shifter is available as a no-cost option. Lamborghini truly is doing heaven’s work.
MSRP : $205,000-$242,695
