The charging bull on the front reminds you that this 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is all about purebred performance

But as a true modern exotic, there’s more appeal here than just approaching 200 mph. This one also gives you all the right modern amenities: from the high-tech A/C interior to the fashionable matte paint. There was even a proper recent service to keep this bull charging full-force.

The Bianco Canopus paint was an optional color, and it proves the Italians really know style. It gives you the timeless appeal of white, but with a matte finish that reminds you that a car like this is built for the individual. This while is directly contrasted with the coordinated black package formed by the headlight package, big air intakes, rear vents, and valance with dual exhaust. And of course, we all take note of the glossy black 19-inch wheels. Even the folding roof on this Spyder coordinates with this look for a very thoughtful exotic. And the overall presentation reminds you that a car like this doesn’t sit outside. Instead, it gets the prime space in the garage where lesser cars get kicked out if they have to be parked anywhere close to it. And the few times when this exotic does get to hit the town (it has averaged less than 3,200 miles annually) responsible ownership means it keeps a top-quality presentation. So you can proudly let people look at the details of this wind-cheating design.

The roof automatically disappears behind a tonneau cover to create a seamless roadster-like profile with the top down. And when you look inside, the full blackout presentation means you still coordinate nicely with the exterior. The seats are a high-quality mix leather with diamond-pattern Alcantara inserts. Plus, these buckets will hold you in place like no other when the road gets twisty, and you can even power adjust them for the ultimate in comfort. This is a top-dollar vehicle, so it should be no surprise that it comes loaded with great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, and dual airbags. The stereo was upgraded to a Kenwood AM/FM infotainment unit that includes Bluetooth and a backup camera. Plus, the dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats mean you and you passenger get to dial-in an individual level of comfort. And while all of that is good for luxury, what you’ll really love the most is grabbling the Italian leather steering wheel and utilizing the paddle shifters to make the large tach and speedo dance.

The 5.0-liter fuel-injected V10 engine is the best of everything. It comes from the era when Audi helped engineer these cars, and they even built the block. But everything was hand-assembled by Lamborghini at their home factory. So you get the ideal mix of German engineering and Italian driving passion. It fires up readily with a frantic and muscular tone that seems to shout, “What are we standing still for?!” This 520 horsepower engine loves to sing its way up to the 8,000 RPM redline like a true exotic. The six-speed paddle-shifted transmission is quicker than you were on your best day. We even have a recent $12k receipt that includes service to the clutch and rear diff to keep this performing its best. There’s a smooth undercarriage for airflow; a race-inspired fully independent suspension that sticks to the pavement like glue; and four-wheel disc brakes with large drilled rotors for big stopping power. But you already knew this was engineered to be a terrific performance machine. What makes this convertible extra special is that it can also settle into a quieter everyday functionality when needed. That’s thanks to features like the power steering, anti-lock brakes, and the auto mode of the transmission.

This is the drop-top supercar that always turns heads. So don’t miss you chance at being the center of attention everywhere.
