What better way to kick off my first automobile feature than with the grandiose Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder? The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder is laced with a riveting V10 550-horsepower engine and merges the gorgeous level of open-air space with rear wheel drive. Needless to say, this opulent piece of work has some speed. It goes from 0-62 mph (miles per hour) in 4.2 seconds, which is faster than I can put my heels on, and reaches a top speed of 198 mph.
Another favorite detail of mine is that the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder sits low to the ground, which makes it much easier to get in and out of than a massive truck or slightly less voluptuous car. The body is lightweight aluminum and comes accessorized with a hydraulic life system to avoid scraping. Let's face it, this is the Valentino of exotic cars.
The interior is beautifully decked out in supple black or ivory quilted leather and it's pre-programmed Sport and Automatic modes are perfect for those who don't like to drive manually. One might assume that this 2-door beast isn't safe; however, Lamborghini paid just as much attention to the safety of the driver as onlooking pedestrians by incorporating twin spring-loaded rollover bars that deploy within 250 milliseconds in a rollover incident (although we know that you aren't planning on rolling over people while driving the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder).
Ultimately, this quintessential beauty and beast of a car is the only car that provides a true experience in the lap of luxury with its sportiness, edgy exterior and astounding power.
