Automobili Lamborghini is expanding the most successful model line ever built under the sign of the bull with a very special car – the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder combines the open spyder body style with purist rear Wheel Drive.
The most important technical characteristics of the Lamborghini LP550-2 Spyder are recognizable from the model designation – LP stands for Longitudinale/Posteriore, for the mid-engine built longitudinally in front of the rear axle. 550 refers to the power output in hp, and the 2 stands for the drive to the rear wheels. At Lamborghini, the word spyder means the ultimate synthesis of a fascinating, powerfully expressive super sports car design, the ultimate open-air thrill and sheer pleasure for all the senses.
