“The LP 560-4 is the best example of the Gallardo to date and will be a great contribution to Lamborghini’s future success,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The entirely new LP 560-4 Spyder adds another dimension to the Gallardo’s lineage with extreme design language and class-leading performance.”

If the name LP560-4 seems like a bit of a mouthful, allow us to explain. The 560 portion of the name reflects its horsepower, while the “4″ designation indicates all-wheel-drive. The “4″ was added to the name in anticipation of the forthcoming rear-wheel-drive variant, which will likely end in “2.”

The Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder offers a new 5.2-liter engine with 40 additional horsepower than its predecessor – enabling the car to sprint from zero to 62 mph in only four seconds.

A top speed of 201 mph is possible, but you don’t need to experience Autobahn speeds to appreciate the car’s improvements. The car’s agility is said to be improved, and a new, lighter transmission allows increased shift times by 40 percent (Corsa Mode). Combined with an all-new chassis, better suspension, and Lamborghini’s permanent all-wheel drive system, prospective owners are in for a treat.

Despite increased performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 18 percent.
