Last week, Tiff Needell from Fifth Gear was in Nice with the latest version of one of the most flamboyant supercars on sale – the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Performante.
The idea is that the Gallardo is getting old. There are already allot of alternatives that are more cheaper and even faster than the Gallardo. However, despite its age the Gallardo can still attract a lot of attention. And, it generates a great sound!
Performante edition was revealed in 2010 and is a convertible version of the LP 570-4 Superleggera.
As usual, the convertible parts make the Spyder heavier than the Superleggera coupe (up to 3,275 lb (1,486 kg) from 2,954 lb (1,340 kg) in the Superleggera,) but Lamborghini has taken extra steps to ensure the Spyder is still 143 lb (65 kg) lighter than the standard Gallardo Spyder.
In terms of performance figures, the Lamborghini Gallardo Performante is able to get from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 324 km.
