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.

Geneva Motor Show 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera – pay more, get less. Less weight that is, because Superleggera in italian means Superlight. You get less glass because side, rear window, engine cover are all made of high quality polycarbonate. Less, because just about every interior panel and trim is carbon fibre or featherweight alcantara. To counterbalance all these […]

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera at Geneva Show 2010

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera – pay more, get less. Less weight that is, because Superleggera in italian means Superlight. You get less glass because side, rear window, engine cover are all made of high quality polycarbonate. Less, because just about every interior panel and trim is carbon fibre or featherweight alcantara. To counterbalance all these negatives, we should mention you get more power from the V10, not a huge amount more; power is up to 570 as the model number suggests, but because of the 70kg weight loss that translates into faster nimbler handling and acceleration. Good enough for a claimed 3.4 seconds 0-62 mph (100kmh). Visually there are quite a few detail changes, with more aggressive front air scoops, rear diffuser and fixed rear wing. Notice the front air intakes are black on the side of the lower wings. There’s a distinctly new arrow shaped look being developed here; an evolution of the Gallardo’s front profile, which will no doubt appear on future variations of the car.
