Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Loud Revs in Dubai

It’s the weekend and autoevolution is taking a more leisurely approach to its reports. I figured the best thing to do is some supercar spotting.
Lamborghini usually brings a new drop-top to the Los Angeles Auto Show, and this year was no exception. They introduced the LP550-2 Spyder, the first RWD Gallardo convertible.

So we asked ourselves why anybody would ever want to buy such a car. The answer came from its sister, the 550-2 Balboni, which offers the same platform but as a coupe. The video posted on Youtube by Dubai supercar spotter 4WheelsofLux proves you need that engine noise in a convertible.

Both are powered by a 5.2l ten cylinder engine, developing 550 hp (hence the name on the car). The convertible needs 4.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the coupe you see here takes 3.9 seconds.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
