Benefits of Driving a 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo Convertible
The true value in the Lamborghini Gallardo rests along three lines: incredible, spine-tingling performance, a design that's a rolling work of art, and the kind of exclusivity that pads the personal image of those who already have everything. The Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe and Spyder (convertible) are powerful, flashy, all-wheel-drive supercars--and and they're among the fastest sports cars in the world, capable of topping 200 mph. For 2011, lighter-weight Superleggera Coupe and Spyder Performante versions of the Gallardo are even lighter and better-performing--although at the expense of some comfort.
