On a recent visit to Lamborghini Leicester, Sytner Photography Coordinator Mark Raybone spent some time with a very special Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante.
The focus of the photo shoot was this stunning special edition Gallardo, a car that was designed to allow for maximum enjoyment and the very best performance - building on lessons learnt through the Superleggera Coupe.
Due to an extensive use of Carbon Fibre, Lamborghini managed to once again lower the weight of the Gallardo. Overall the Performante is 65kg less than the Superleggera and features 40% more Carbon Fibre than the previous model.
Like the Superleggera, the Performante utilises a 5.2-litre V10 but a remap by the Italian company has allowed for an increased output of 570bhp. The extra power sends the Performante from 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds and continues to push the car all the way up to 201mph.
