Lambo roll out a soft top version of the Gallardo Superleggera and call it the Performante

Here’s Lambo’s latest: the Spyder version of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. Rather than call it a Superleggera Spyder though, it’s moniker is Performante. Why is a mystery, it translates as high performance and is feminine, but who are we to quibble over a name when the product is sumptuous? Like the fixed top, its raison d’être is lightness. Lamborghini have shaved 65 kgs off the kerb weight over the cooking roadster by using those superlight Superleggera rims and an abundance of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). Alcantara seats are lighter than traditional leather so guess what you get? You do however get aircon and ICE (unlike the Porsche Cayman R we just covered). And you can make your car lighter still by deleting the rear carbon wing off the options list; but that would be a shame.

Hey, it’s Pirelli Calendar time! And here’s Brit pop singer James Blunt emerging from a Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. But rather than train the spotlights on the celebrities, the extra LED lighting highlights the cars’ wheel arches where the Italian rubber is the star. The Venue is London where JB is joined by Lady Victoria Hervey, fab actress Lily Cole, and gorgeous Brit model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who stars, amongst others, in the Brazilian shoot for the fabled Milanese tyre co. This super coveted calendar is limited to corporate gifts, so photographer Terry Richardson’s work won’t be seen too widely, unless the prized wall-adorners make their way on to ebay or google images..!
