Up for sale is this RARE 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Performante Spyder Convertible with only 17K original low miles! If you know these cars, there is no need for an introduction. It is an absolutely monstrous machine, whilst simultaneously being a gorgeous piece of art! Lamborghini's engineers essentially gave the Gallardo Spyder the Superleggera treatment, dubbing the result the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante. Full power is available at a screaming 8000 rpm; maximum torque is 398 lb-ft at 6500 rpm. The power bump comes entirely from adjusting the engine management software. Would this change alone justify the "Performante" label? Certainly not, so Lamborghini shaved weight, pulling off a claimed 143 pounds! Forty percent of the weight improvement is achieved by using carbon-fiber composite materials throughout the Spyder Performante, including for the engine cover, the optional rear spoiler, the diffuser, parts of the underbody panels, and the mirror caps. Inside, carbon fiber covers the center tunnel, the trim around the gear selector, and—most important—the seat shells, which shave off a big chunk of weight. Alcantara substitutes for the regular Gallardo's leather, saving more weight and adding even more eau de exotic to a car that hardly needs the help. Twenty-nine pounds comes out of the car by way of fitting the Gallardo Superleggera's 19-inch wheels. Between the weight savings and the horsepower boost, Lamborghini boasts that the Spyder Performante can dispatch a 0-to-62-mph run in 3.9 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. The Spyder Performante’s exterior is distinguished by a new, more aggressive nose, a body-colored grille, special body stripes, and the plethora of visible carbon-fiber bits. Badging will indicate Performante, rather than the Gallardo coupe's Superleggera moniker, and according to Lamborghini that's very much an intentional distinction. "We basically wanted to make an open version of the Superleggera," says Lamborghini design chief Manfred Fitzgerald. We love the Superleggera and its fabulous dynamics, but when it comes to 10-cylinder Lamborghinis, a roofless one is the best way to enjoy the engine’s raucous symphony. If it happens to be a few dozen pounds lighter? All the better.
