Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder

Lamborghini is adding a rear-wheel-drive convertible version to the Gallardo range, offering 550 hp for open-air speeds.

Lamborghini revealed the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder at an event on Wednesday evening as part of several days of festivities surrounding the Los Angeles auto show. The V10 supercar was retuned to handle the prodigious power going to the rear wheels, and it has different damper settings and aerodynamics than its all-wheel sibling.

This new Gallardo can blitz to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds en route to a top speed of 198 mph. It checks in at 3,351 pounds, with 47 percent/53 percent front-to-rear distribution. Torque is rated at 398 lb-ft. The engine is paired with a six-speed or optional e-gear sequential transmission.
