2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder
The 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder is marked by three elements: fascinating design, breathtaking performance and superb handling. It all comes together with an even more powerful engine, permanent all-wheel drive and an all-new chassis.
Sharp angles dominate the exterior of the 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder. Its steep wedge shape gives it an air of speed and purpose even when it is parked and standing still. It sits with a low and wide stance, too.
The convertible top of the 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder is cloth. Metal could not be used for space reasons – as in there would be no room to store it. The top opens and closes in 20 seconds with the touch of a button. A hydraulic pump, which runs on six hydraulic cylinders, pairs with an electric motor and two electric actuators to effect the operation of the droptop.
Leather abounds throughout the interior of this 2010 Lambo. It is found on the power seats as well as the door panels. In these applications it has a lozenge-shape to the quilting pattern. The power seats are additionally praised for their just-right levels of bolstering and padding to enhance the driving experience.
Also nicely designed is the steering wheel. It’s small but that aids in quick driving. It’s covered in leather, which gives it a nice thickness for better grip.
The 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder offers a significant increase in performance against its predecessor. Its new 5.2-liter, V10 has an output of 560 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. That’s an increase of 40 horsepower over its predecessor.
The Lambo Gallardo is also slimmer. Its weight has dropped 44 lbs. That contributes to weight-to-horsepower ratio of 6.1 lbs.
The new driveline has the “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” direct fuel injection system. Optional lightweight carbon ceramic brakes offer superior durability and reduce brake fade. (That occurs when brakes overheat and simply stop working.)
