|Luxury Cars: Lamborghini
revealed earlier this week the all-new Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, a lighter version of the Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder, which promises to deliver better handling and performances. As we already told you, the car is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine delivering 570 hp (419 kW) at 8,000 rpm and an impressive 540 Nm of torque (398,3 ft lbs) at 6,500 rpm. With these numbers the car can sprint from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 3.9 second, while the top speed is limited to 324 km/h (201 mph).
The engine is mated via the e-gear transmission operated via steering wheel paddles, as standard. As expected, the e-gear control unit has three operating modes: two of them are available in automatic, while the third (Thrust mode) is programmed to deliver maximum performance and to deliver starting revs of around 5,000 rpm with minimal wheel slip.
