Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder: Getting sunburnt has never seemed so attractive

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
We found a very nice "first drive" article over at "Inside Line" including some very nice pictures as well.
The author is quite skeptic about the cooperation between Audi and Lamborghini, but without it, these kind of cars, for which all of us long for, would have been impossible.
Which is why I approached this 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder with a healthy dose of skepticism. Convertibles may make you, the driver, look good but they can do terrible things to the coupes on which they're based — namely ruining structural integrity and adding weight. A neutered Lamborghini designed for people more interested in looking cool than driving hard was a car I reckoned I could survive without.

Except, and as it turns out, the Gallardo Spyder is not like this, not like this at all. You see, Lamborghini spent the last year not only figuring out how to persuade a fabric roof to disappear under the engine cover in less than 18 seconds, but also addressing a whole host of other issues which it just now admits — and then only in private — made the original Gallardo not quite the car it should have been.
