It is impossible not to be fascinated by the sheer presence and daring proportions of this radically angular sports car. The Lamborghini Gallardo/Spyder convertible is the ultimate in Italian made high-performance exotic super cars. It is powered by a 520 hp 5.0-liter V-10 controlled by a six-speed gearbox with 'E-gear' paddle shifters and is full-time all-wheel drive. The Lamborghini designers took the existing Gallardo coupe, added still more power and more torque to the V10 engine, and then took 220 pounds out of the car by substituting lightweight carbon fiber and titanium throughout the car to make it quicker and faster than it was before.

The Gallardo’s aluminum body and space frame allows a better power to weight ratio. It rides on Pirelli P-Zero tires mounted on 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes that have eight-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers. The Gallardo’s all-wheel drive system was tweaked this year to gain a new prop shaft to the front wheels, plus new front drive shafts. The 2007 Spyder also has a nice feature; with a press of a button the powered convertible top stows under the engine cover and behind the passenger compartment. In the case of the car being inverted, a pop-up roll bar and strengthened A-pillars are present for passenger protection.

Only 350 Gallardo Spyder’s were built and sold out quicker than you can say, “Sant’Agata Bolognese,” Lamborghini’s Italian home. This Lamborghini is a fantastic automobile, highly entertaining and exceptionally fast - the Gallardo that participated in a Road & Track “World Superpowers” cover story topped out at 192.1 mph.
