Gallardo Spyder
Open to all weather suggestions

The Gallardo 10-cylinder engine power increases from 500 to 520 hp.

APN,
24th February 2006.

Two years after the launch of the Coupé version of the Gallardo, Automobili Lamborghini presented recently its new Gallardo Spyder for the model year 2006, bringing its range of supercars to four models.

More than simple open-top version of the Coupé, Lamborghini qualifies the Gallardo Spyder as a completely new model, with a new design and a unique system for opening and closing the fabric roof that utilises the engine compartment to store the folded roof.

The dimensions of the Gallardo ensure the car has an athletic compactness with the long wheelbase and short overhangs. The Gallardo Spyder features typical and unique mono-volume proportions.

The hood is made from black fabric with an electronic control system, integrated in the car’s CAN-BUS network. The roof raising/lowering mechanism is simple to operate by way of two push-buttons on the centre of the dashboard, with the whole operation taking just over 20 seconds.

Roof raising/lowering mechanism takes just over 20 seconds.

The rear screen moves automatically while the roof is being opened or closed. This automatically-controlled movement always returns the screen to the raised position. The driver can also choose to have the screen in the lowered position (also with the roof raised) by pressing the appropriate button on the dashboard. There is also a "service function" that positions the roof so as to allow access to the engine.

Reinforced space frame with an automatic Roll Over protection system.

The structural design of the new Gallardo Spyder complies fully with all the relevant safety standards. The space frame has been reinforced in the area of the sills and the A pillars have been strengthened with the adoption of an automatic Roll Over protection system (comprising two “pop-ups") integrated with the air bag system.

The technical modifications brought to the Gallardo Model Year 2006 and Gallardo SE also apply to the Gallardo Spyder.

The 10-cylinder (40 valves), 4981 cc engine power increases from 500 hp (367 kW) /7800 rpm to 520 hp (382 kW) / 8000 rpm. The six-speed gearbox is equipped with shorter ratios (1st gear is 27% lower, 2nd gear is 13%, 3rd / 4th / 5th gears are all 6% lower, while 6th gear is 3.5% lower). The steering is also more direct and precise and the suspension has been recalibrated.

Like the other models in the range, the Gallardo Spyder also benefits from aluminium bodywork and features permanent four-wheel drive.

Gallardo SE

The Gallardo Spyder – which complies with EURO 4 homologation standards – reaches a top speed of 314 km/h with the roof up and 307 km/h with the roof down, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, compared with 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h for the 2006 Gallardo Coupé and SE.

Amongst the Gallardo Spyder standard equipment come the power steering fluid cooler (for sports use), automatic door locking at speeds of over 15 km/h and Lamborghini Multimedia System (not available for Japan).

In addition to the current range of Gallardo colours, the new Gallardo Spyder is also available in two special colours: Celeste Phoebe (light blue) and Verde Picus (green). There are also new colours for the leather interiors: Marrone Janus (brown) as the main colour, Bianco Polar (white) as a contrast colour, and carpets in Marrone Janus (brown), Rosso Centaurus (red) or Arancio Leonis (orange).

The range of optional equipment includes the video camera on the rear spoiler (available also on the Coupé version) new colour/perforated leather combinations for the dashboard, seats and door trim contrast colour stitching.
