LP570-4 Spyder Performante Sings on Track

Given the fact that you see Lambos on every other television show, you might think they are a dime a dozen... figuratively speaking. But they are not, since the Italians only make a couple of thousand a year, not like Ferrari who made over 10,000 last year.
This one is their best seller, the Gallardo. Well, not this one, because it’s a relatively rare LP570-4 Spyder Performante, a veritable track machine with no roof on.

The green machine was recently spotted by Brian Zuk, who got a really good close-up of the interior before the car got out onto the track and thrashed about.

Out there, the V10 bellows out sound like a baritone singing Rossini’s Barber of Seville at the top of his voice.

The Performante only weighs 3,275 lb (1,485 kg) thanks to a strict regime of carbon fiber throughout the car. It’s powered by a 5.2-liter V10 that develops 570 hp for a 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in a mere 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph).

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.
