Lamborghini Gallardo LP570 Test-4 Spyder Powerful: if madness had a name

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570Let’s face it. At first we were a bit dubious. Yet another variant of the Lamborghini Gallardo was it really necessary? The problem posed by the LP570-4 Spyder Powerful, complex, require leaving aside the Cartesian analysis.

There was already a brutal Superleggera, and the sharp LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, in addition to the range of “classic” LP560-4. Spyder and the existing record was sufficient a priori as a super-sporty air. Not enough apparently, since he applied the Lamborghini Superleggera recipe. To avoid confusion, it is called Spyder Performance.

However, it is indeed the decapping of the LP570-4 Superleggera. Simply put, take a Gallardo Spyder. Replace some body parts and interior with carbon, offer 10 additional hp V10 5.2 l, and increased stiffness of the chassis. Here we are.

To find more brutal discoverable, it will likely wait for the release of Spider Ferrari 458 Italia. The F430 Spider 16M in his time, was already endowed with the principle. In short, it’s as if Porsche began to get out a 911 GT2 coupe … Some would cry the fool. Because in general, a radical sport is lived rather confined in a cabin, harnessed in a tub. Not necessarily so, even if the problems of rigidity and weight gain specific to remain present convertibles.

The LP570-4 Powerful is inevitably heavier than the Superleggera (1485 kg against 1340 kg), but announcement still 65 kg less than the LP560-4 Spyder. Based on the fact that it retains all-wheel drive, the balance is quite favorable.

The power to weight ratio in a very slight improvement does not upset the timing. It is obviously in good shape, especially with a 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 s, but the gain was only announced a small tenth. Ditto for the top speed of 324 km / h, unchanged.

Reading the sheet technique does not help to doubt that we had on its legitimacy. Performance deserves it more than the name LP560-4?

Keep in mind that with this type of sport flying in the open air is not just about numbers. Beyond the pragmatic and effective pure, it plays in the emotional. The role of the LP570-4 Spyder Performance (ah, the names Lamborghini …) is to take you in direct contact with the elements. And thus saturate the senses … Kick barrel right counters Benzina , Olio and Acqua restless. Tearing metal hoop in the hands and alcantara andiamo.Lamborghini Gallardo LP570
