The last hurrah for Lamborghini Gallardo will be a lightened rear-wheel drive 550 version.
Throughout the years there have been many versions of the Gallardo, all of them great because it was a great car itself. We had the Coupe, Spyder, Superleggera, LP560-4, LP560-4 Spyder, LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, LP570-4 Superleggera, and more recently the LP570-4 Performante and Trofeo Strafale.
Now it seems the Italian car maker wants to give the car a proper sendoff with a back to basics rear-drive version of the Spyder. The Balboni Gallardo is the other RWD variant of the car, but that was a limited edition.
This new Spyder though won’t get any special visual features, like wings and stripes and stuff. It will be about 30 kg lighter than the normal car and will be powered by Balboni’s 550 hp engine.
The Gallardo Spyder RWD probably won’t be as poised and precise as the 4WD version, but exactly because of that it’ll be more fascinating, more fun to drive.
The Gallardo will be replaced a few years with an all-new model called the Cabrera.
