The new Lamborghini Gallardo Spider was recently spotted during final testing in the deserts of North America. This gorgeous new Lamborghini Gallardo variation is slated to launch at the Frankfurt auto show this September.
Based on discussions on the Roadfly forums this puppy will be a must have in the garages of those who prefer exotics. If the Roadfly members discussions hold true the Gallardo Spider may attract many first time Lamborghini owners.
One of the many benefits of having the deep pockets of Volkswagen's R&D department available to Lamborghini is the ability to incorporate a modern drop-top convertible mechanism. The new Lamborghini Gallardo's convertible top is as simple as we expect. With the push of a button you can go from cozy comfort to open air thrills with a highly engineered and elegant electro-hydraulic convertible system.
The Gallardo coupe most recently featured a 5.0 litre V10, this new 2006 Gallardo Spider will have increased horsepower to 522 BHP from 493 BHP. A six-speed manual gearbox or automatic transmission is available and for those wanting a more competitive feeling gearbox Lamborghini's e-gear semi-automatic system is an available option. All the horsepower of this Italian beauty gets to the pavement through the world-class all wheel drive system..
