Lamborghini presents the new Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder in Los Angeles

Some carmakers just do not need to be very creative in order to amaze its audience. This is the case for Lamborghini, which has just presented the new Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder, a car that, although heavily based on a well-known model, deserves some words of its own. Nice ones.

As usual, the name denounces much about the car: 560 is a reference to the power of the 5.2-litre V10, or else, 560 bhp at 8,000 rpm, and 4 refers to its all-wheel drive system. Spyder, of course, tells us about the car this Gallardo has been based on and its ability to drop its top.

There is no mention on the name about the fact that this Spyder lost 20 kg, what also helped improve its performance, already remarkable (LP means Longitudinale Posteriore, the position in which the engine is mounted, longitudinally rear mid-mounted). Now the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4 s flat and reaches a top speed of 324 km/h.

The new car will go on sale in the first quarter of 2009, with a price tag of 160,920 euros (including taxes) in the Old World and or US$ 221,000 (MSRP) in the USA.
