Lamborghini's Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, recently anointed Performance Car Of The Year by the UK's Car magazine, has made its first Australian appearance.
With sublime muscular lines, the Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder has the stratospheric performance of the true supercar. With a lighter transmission, a new 5.2 litre V10 engine, new suspension and revised permanent all-wheel-drive system, the LP560-4 Spyder goes from 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds and on to a top speed of 324 km/h. That puts it near the mighty Murcielago LP640's 330km/h top speed.
Yet it does this with improved fuel consumption and an 18 percent reduction in CO2 emissions. (And, yes, we want one... and why do these damn things turn grown men into dribbling school-boys?)
The LP560-4 is the latest iteration of the Gallardo, the best selling Lamborghini of all time.
